    Question for women.......Why is it so hard to get a straight answer out of a man ?

    - - -they always give an evasive answer,a sarcastic answer, or a facetious answer to a serious question. Is it because they don't know the answer themselves ?

    MCM: You are asking women because if you asked the guys, you wouldn't get a straight answer, right? :D  
    My guess is they generally don't give a straight answer because we would expect more; also, we probably wouldn't like what we are told.

    PKB, Yes, that's why I'm asking the women. Haha. Your answer makes a lot of sense. My dad used to give me a sarcastic answer, and my brother gives me a facetious answer when I ask him something serious,like, " What do you do at work ? " He'd say , "As little as possible" or " Don't feel bad.....Nancy doesn't know what I do at work either"
    My late husband used to give me one word answers. He didn't mean anything by it.
    Like when I said, " How was your day at work ? " He'd say, " Busy! "
    My friend,Ron, always answers my questions with a question.
    Bob/PKB

    My ex husband couldn't give a straight answer if his life depended on it. "Why?" was always met with "Because I said so".
    mycatsmom

    PK-----I thought only mothers said that. LOL

    "they always" ... MCM, you are speaking in absolutes. 


    My husband is the king of the straight answer.  I must be far more fortunate than you because I don't know what you are actually talking about. 


    One thing I have noticed from observing my friends and otherwise is that the women who are telling the lies and manipulating and or being evasive are being treated exactly the same way from the men in their lives.


    And... for the rest, when someone is telling a lie or being evasive there is a vibration attached.  Learn to pick up on the vibration.  It makes life so much easier. 


    If someone is being facetious with you, then you may want to think about where that person is coming from.  It certainly is not positive or respectful.

    I spell facetious like this....feces-ish....when someone's being feces-ish...means they're full of it!! bwa! ;)

    Ha Ha Ha!... and we have to look this word up for proper spelling because something else is funnier... INSTANTLY! ... We are West Coast Baby... Watch out the spelling police will be around shortly.
    Oh, is that a free range chicken taking it's self for a walk? Oh there goes Larry the Llama. Seriously.
    lindilou

    Isn't that Lola there with Larry...hmm I wonder if Priscilla knows they're knocking about together? Llamas...go figure...they really think they are 'above' us all..I s'pose 'cause they sorta are...after all...dalai Llamas....Ooooohhhhmmmmmm....

    ....peace...peace...peace friend!

    ...um...Fishy?...yer never gonna believe this but...that chicken just walked itself by....the cats looked at each other and went.."Hmmm?" like Scooby Doo! Hilarious!(There's a chicken farm at the creek...must be another escapee!!)
    FISH-O

    It always is a smile when a Chicken takes it's self for a walk. They really seem to know where they are going! :D

    Umm...well let me see..because they don't want to be in shizzle for saying the incorrect thing!!! It's like...


    ""

    mycatsmom

    that could be it.But, what's a shizzle ? Is that a yiddish word ?
    lindilou

    Adam Sandler uses it...it means, to put it politely... 'crap'! It's got to be Yiddish!

    It's all about how the question is asked and when it is asked.


    For example:  If you asked Romos which shirt he wanted to wear with his skirt today...you might get a question in return.."What day is it?"  Now, this may seem silly to a woman BUT it is not.  If He plans to see the teddybears play he will pick an appropriate blue top- follow, follow.  However, if there is a wedding he will choose a white top and his sash.  If it is ferret walking day he will not care, but if it has rained he will wear boots (it gets soggy under bridges after the rain- or is it on top of bridges??)


    I rest my case.

    Swami Doo, you have done it again. Always the most brilliant of answers! All that time spent studying animal behaviour is really paying off.
    doolittle

    Thank You Fishy. Men are a breed apart.
    mycatsmom

    doo,is he gay ?
    doolittle

    mcm-Not to my knowledge! Romos' skirt is a KILT (we just tease him about the skirt). He's an avid football(soccer) fan (the teddybears are a nickname for the team He and Dowsa love)...formal attire for the kilt and sash would be a white button down)..and the ferret thing comes from a very old thread about strange laws that still exist where you live...
    ROMOS

    You know us so well "swami doo" couldn't have said it better myself..............
    mycatsmom?.....Have you been drinking something"nasty"?
    FISH-O

    MCM... What on the planet is that kind of question? Dang! Moving forward?!
    lindilou

    The King is happy...no doubt!!!
    KILT! KILT! KILT!
    (someone's gotta say it!) ;D

    Honey PLEASE!   Stop asking me silly questions!

    Why isn't his entire face covered????
    ROMOS

    He might think it puts off potential employers Doo!
    doolittle

    @ Romos- that has to be it! Although those 2 little cheek spots bug me. Guess I won't be hiring him.

    Men, like women are all different. Some are extroverts and some are introverts. My late huband was an extrovert, he always was on top of everthing.and explained things in every detail and there was never a communication problem.

    mycatsmom

    You are fortunate.

    This is how men feel when we ask them something...


    ""

    Seems, some husbands/ boy friends, want us to know as little as possible especially, if the question is directed at them.

    mycatsmom

    Dolly- - -but why?
    lambshank

    sort of secret mens business,they can be looking right you.... and their poor little minds are still thinking of beer or fishing
    Dollybird

    lambshank, not all males are as narrow minded, to just think about, Fishing and beer. After couple of Beers, only males know what they think about, wounder if it is about fishing of different kind.
    Dollybird

    mycatsmom, that is a question, I wish I could answer.lol
    lambshank

    Dollybird,did not mean narrow minded,my hubby is a very liberal thinker, just not a good multi tasker..and his priorities are different

    Bla,bla,bla............................

    eggzakly....the ex called me goody 2 shoes for my lack of nagging...I'm self-parented to a great degree...been single most of my days...by choice..I do not 'get' the dynamics of a relation-ship versus say a relation-canoe! (I digress...bla, bla, bla...) LOL ;D
    FISH-O

    I truly understand where Rick is coming from... all things can be reversed ... don't you know!
    Flipping painful.
    Blah blah blah ... just shoot me in the head now!
    Oh, did you say one more thing? Where is that stake for my heart... let me get it and a hammer to go with it.... Misery be gone!

    Well,I know with my husband he either doesn't know the answer, or usually he is here in body and  spirit but his mind has travelled to elsewhere

    that explains it......

    Question for men.........why is it so hard to get a straight answer out of a woman?


    Don't bother answering, guys.

    ROMOS

    I couldn't,and that's unusual for me.
    :-)
    Dardaigh

    But Nom...you can ask me anything! LOL :)

    Because they are always leery of the "catch"......

    mycatsmom

    jh, I gave your answer some thought, and yes, I can see how that works.

    He hates sleeping on the couch if he tells her her body is not that slim?

    doolittle

    LOL. Do women really ask if they look fat??
    Chiangmai

    Yes, and women are so glad God created couches.

    On the other hand, men are just ecstatic God created euphemisms.
    doolittle

    Too Funny! No one ever asks "do I look fat in my fur?" on Doolittle's Farm.
    Chiangmai

    A man never tells his wife or girl friend that she's fat. He would describe her as "pleasantly plump".
    doolittle

    Ahhhh. To be pleasantly plump is to be well fed!
    Chiangmai

    If a woman is truly overweight, we just tell them "Gee, honey, you are very very pleasantly plump". We men are careful when we talk to our women. The word "fat" is not part of our vocabulary. We dislike the idea of gender extinction.

    Women outlive men by 12 years, if not more.
    doolittle

    Yes, I could see how you might fear gender extinction. Thank you for educating me on this matter! LOL
    Chiangmai

    I am so glad I get to live another day! :)
    doolittle

    I am glad you get to live too!!!!!!!

    It's not that they're opposed to answering a question, it's usually the question itself that they're opposed to.

    " This question reminds me of this past weekend when this "gal" asked me "What in " ( hell ) ! " were you think-in ? " So I says to her; Obvisously I reckon I was goin to get away with it and not have to explain ! " "Strictly A Mans Point Of View Of Course." ;)
