The "alpha males" that I know aren't mean or rude. They're more indifferent and not so quick to create conflict...but they will put an end to it.






I can't believe I'm seeing "mean girls" among 5 year olds. Some of the things that come out of their mouths just blow me away...you'd think they were 16! It saddens me that I actually have a strong dislike for some 5 year olds when I know it's not their fault, but that they were "made" that way. (I don't have much use for their moms either. )

Too much media influence. You can blame the parents.

Yeah l know at school , even primary school for my daughter , my God they were little tyrants .
l thought growing up as a guy was pretty tough but l do think the girls are worse now that l've lived through some of the stuff my daughter went through.

She's 16 now and goes to tech school which is about 2/3 male and l asked her if she's had any problems and minds that there aren't as many girls.
She said my God no way dad , guys are so much easier to get along with , it's actually a relief not to have to deal with so many girls.

l also have 6 sisters and 4 brothers.
On the brothers , l love them all and there's never really been any drama of any kind. We live all over the country now but whenever we see each other it's just simple and fun and happy to catch up.
There's never any hassle within the family from any of the boys either. Although there was when we were younger , some of us into a lotta shyt.

But the girls , it never ends. l don't even see any of them and hardly call any, every few years if l can get away with it, yet still they hassle us and cause shyt from a far. l'm 3hours away in another world yet the drama and bs l've had to deal with , all from the girls.

This. It is not at all an unknown phenomenon for the most afraid and vulnerable and resourceless (even if that is just a POV) to turn on each other. We see this in many many many groups. I won't go into details but it is common and it is by no means just women.

Those just happen to be your brothers. Other people's brothers are very different. Don't assume your brothers are EveryBrother.

she is correct, that is so true...I love men, love to hear their stories...well, I'm a woman who hates shopping...gossip, etc...so? Hate soap operas.

I believe coming from a larger family also makes a big difference...I had a girlfriend who was the ultimate, well, actually had 3, they were versed in not only life, but traveled quit a bit, and were so interesting and knowledgeable. Lost them to cancer...and miss them terribly....

but yes, men are interesting conversationalists.....
guess I loved hearing their opinions from a male point of view...they also are fair, and are able to forgive much easily. You talk it out and it's over never to be reviews again.

While some women are absolute sweethearts, there are some who are absolutely cold, calculating, and cruel.

Some of the women I know have even said they prefer being friends with men cause women can be in their words, "catty, jealous b words
