Its all about insecurities and attention!!!!!!!
That was my point with why women are so catty towards each other

Most women crave attention and compliments and anyone they think is their way or takes some away from the they try to eliminate..

Im not saying men dont like attention as human beings everyone wants to be aprpreciated but women seem to take it to insane levels..

So then that is the reason why most younger women I know are so difficult.

The older women I know tend to be much calmer and more logical.

I certainly don't want to bash women. I truly love women for all that they are. But have you ever noticed how when you walk into a restaurant with a good looking woman, a lot of other women will look at you flirtatiously? You could go into the same restaurant alone on the very next night and feel like a pariah. Also, when a woman knows that you are taken, (let me stress that SOME women), will be all the more interested in you. I haven't noticed this in men. On the contrary, most men will shy away from married or taken women unless the attraction is too much too resist or else it's flat out given to them.

I disagree. Maybe young women but I don't know. I know women are very supportive, and it's your women friends you go to in a crisis because they seem to understand - it's a female thing as in Women are from Venus, Men are from Mars. I mean just go to a high school volleyball event. Girls high five each other to give condolences for a bad play!

Hmmmm I don't know about that. I've seen some very hostile women out there. They seem to not hold back when criticizing and insulting men or me for that matter.

Older women not so much.

well I dont know why but I went to a bacherolette (sp) party and this one girl said to me. You know I have never met a nicer bunch of women than were in that limo and at that party . She proceeded to tell me that she had never seen women get along so well . I think it was cause we were all related in one way or another . I just could not believe a woman would say that . I think women need to stick together the way some men do .

Well people are stronger in groups. The group can always ostracize someone and get away with abuse and keep their belief system in tact...........similar to a cult!! Oooo happy days

Well, I've seen this too. But are you saying that you are unaware of the opposite? If so, you might get yourself a new neighbor, a family of new neighbors. Sounds like a pretty hip, progressive place.

BINGO!!! I have had to deal with three very catty women this last two week with another one in the works. I have gotten to the point that I do not want to work with a woman..I have 2-3 close female friends and two close female co-workers. Everyone else I rather deal with is male.

It has gotten to the point that if my co-worker is a woman I know there is an 85% chance she will not get along with me. Those are not good odds.
