- Women, wives in particular!
If any bloke out there has a cure for this please please please let me know….
Change wives roughly every 3 years.
This seems to be my unconscious pattern.
Year 1) Lovely stuff! All new and exciting.
Year 2) Settle down into domestic contentedness.
Year 3) Getting bored, ignore the elephant in the room* until something breaks after about 12 months.
*Interpret however you want.Posted 4 years agoglobaltiMember
after 17 yrs of marriage I do drown out her constant talking/moaning/white noise and do “switch off” occasionaly. As such I am often in deep doodah as I miss entire conversations or important pieces of information.

Very common. All you have to do is extend the buffer in the short-term memory so that you can repeat the last sentence she spoke.
“You’re not even listening to me are you?”
“Yes I am!”
“So what have I just said?”
“You said: ‘that new pink cushion looks nice, I think I’ll get one for my mum'”Posted 4 years agoFerris-BeullerMember
This thread is brilliant!
A mate of mine once asked me why im so calm and in all honesty it is because i pay zero attention to my other half when she starts moaning or generally verbalising every single thought. I go into an ‘auto pilot’ kind of state and just say things like ‘yes, that sounds good’. I learnt this skill as apparently i was always trying to ‘solve her problems’to which she didnt want a solution, just wanted to moan. So there we have it, my coping mechanism is just to ignore every single word and think of Whistler, Verbier, Power tools etc….
Has worked very well for me!! 🙂Posted 4 years agobadllamaMember
globalti speaks very wise truths,
But what happens then is she get wound up to the fact I can remember 😯
I always find while watching TV she will to talk about the usual crap so now I just power down the TV and look at her and she goes quiet. I turn it on again and she talking again I’m sure the two are linked by the TV remote in some way 😀Posted 4 years agoSuiMember

you banging my missus? The problem here then is that I get challenged to “my interpretation” of what she means and “do I agree” and if I don’t, then I may as well have killed lots of little children for how much of bad person I am! 🙄
edit to add this seem to happen quite a lot actually and now we have “communication issues” – I tried quoting “don’t cry wolf” – it didn’t go down well.Posted 4 years agoglobaltiMember

Classic! Soooo true!
Okay here’s another one:
She: “I wonder why bla bla bla bla?”
Gti: “Hmmm… maybe because bla bla bla bla?”
(This might have been, for example, why aren’t the birds singing as loudly today as they did yesterday?)
She: “You don’t really know the answer do you? You’re just bullshitting as usual!”
Now I have learned that the correct answer to any pointless question where I’m not absolutely 100% sure of the correct reply is: “Oooh, I don’t know!” This kills the conversation stone dead and lets me get back to looking at girls’ bottoms on Pinterest.Posted 4 years agoalansd1980Subscriber

Well. My wife doesn’t moan, is attractive, is intelligent, earns more than me yet is married to me and likes other women as well.
haha **** you all.
They all start out that way, I used to have the same conversation with my married friends before I was married. They just gave me the knowing look and disapproving shake of the head.Posted 4 years ago

No sign of marriage on the horizon, so probably safe for a few years at least, but what an eye-opening thread! 😯
Surely not every wife exhibits these traits…? 😕
…and what about the wives’ points of view – I wonder if they think their husbands are infuriating and no longer the men they married?Posted 4 years agoTheArtistFormerlyKnownAsSTRSubscriber
Just wait till they hit forty and
go properly batshit crazyhave an early menopause
You bunch of poor fools don’t even know what’s coming.
I’m clinging on to the slender hope that this little ‘life experience’ gets itself out of the way and she might be sane again by her 50’s – just when the rest of you are packing to take a stay in the pit of hades.
