No really. Ive been married for 17 yrs, I learned early on that I was never going to win an argument. Even if I was right, I was still going to loose. So I just dont piss her off. And in the rare event I do, take her to a Nascar race. That buys me atleast a year of mistakes.

Ah the quandary of the world:

Man gets mad at woman.
Woman gets mad at man for getting mad.
Man apologizes to woman then wonders "how the hell did that happen"

Spend some time with her.

Showing her some attention goes a long way.

flowers for small things, dinner for bigger things ( sometimes good with flowers) and for really big screw ups a clothes shopping spree, however women are a smart bunch and dont always fall for it, otherwise you be buying them things all the time.

...make her laugh.

Just yesterday, I had failed to perform some function at home. While I was out and about, she calls me on the cell and begins to start in. I started using humor to to turn it. After about a minute, she's laughing and tells me "You better be glad I'm laughing; otherwise, I'd be realy pissed."

DivingsInMyBlood is right; she's smart and knows what I'm doing. The girl's in love with me; so, I get away with stuff. I'm in love with her; so, she DEFINATELY gets away with far more.


Turn her over That's just wrong...funny, but wrong.

I wait till the nuclear eruption is over, then take care of activities she normally is stuck doing with the kids (like running all over town for practice)

Or if I'm really in deep s__t, I make sure her computer is screwed up again and fix it for her when she asks....but that's just too sneaky.

I just refuse to fight with them. If they get mad about something stupid or irritate me, I just don't talk to them till they get over it :-). If it really is my fault, then I will tell them I'm sorry and sweet talk them a little, maybe buy them some flowers. But I refuse to cop to something that isn't my fault and if they try that kind of nonsense, I drop them. That's the beauty of being single.... you can always say "Next!" :-)

You just have to live under the 5 5 5 rules:

She has 5 minutes to tell me what I did wrong....


I have 5 minutes to tell her why I did it...


She then has 5 minutes to get over it.

If it's truly my fault. I just apologize. And she just accepts it and we move on with our life. 10 years of marriage, we have it down to a science now. When we were first married, it was more like Bill22's attitude, and that just created more problems. I try not to do anything that would require me to buy expensive jewelry as a peace offering.

It's really about equal treatment. Of course I would and do apologize if it's my fault (I think I mentioned that :-)). The problem arises when women don't want to admit when THEY are wrong. They are just as capable of mistakes as men are, but to many of them don't want to admit it.

If I screw up I apologize right away and get that over with. It's really not a big deal to me to admit it when I'm wrong. I like the air nice and clear anyway. However, in apologizing, like in a traffic stop, it's best to admit only to those crimes you have been accused of:)

CrzyJay, you cannot HELP but get on her bad side. In 55 years, I've been married too many times and known too many women to know that you will be on her bad side. It cannot be stopped...kinda like the sun rising in the east.

What is worse, of course, is that you WILL NOT KNOW that you have some making up to do. You must read her mind. And don't think that a simple "I'm sorry" will suffice. She wil look you in the eye wth The Look and ask "What are you apologizing for? What act specifically?" If you cannot answer,...well, let's just say...it's not pretty.:smiley36:

So young...so naive...

hey I just apologise and she understands (most of the time). you know what, my wife apologises to me too. If i have been on the receiving end for an extended period of time, I get an apology after an hour or so.

Am I lucky or what???????

Warren
09-10-2008, 16:56
To get back on her good side I apologize, tell that I am a terrible husband and that she deserves better, tell her what a lucky man I am to be with her, shed a few quick tears and then enjoy all the rewards of a successful guilt trip on her for making me feel like such a little insignificant man... :smilie39:

09-10-2008, 19:46
My wife always asks me, "what were you thinking!?!?!?" when I do something wrong. I try telling her the truth... "I don't think, I just do." Usually doesn't go over well. But if I give her a glass or two of her favorite wine, all is forgiven. I just make sure to have the wine rack stocked for such emergencies. Oh and doing something to make her laugh usually speeds up the forgivness process.

09-10-2008, 23:52
There are actually some of us gals out there who prefer a sincere apology and an attempt at resolving the situation to being "bought" with flowers or jewelry. (Wonder if admitting that will make me need to turn in my "chick card").

We can't offer a sincere apology if we don't THINK we did anything wrong... And getting a guy to think at all is quite a task all in itself.

Things had been a bit rough around here, so I finally resorted to buying her a brand new reg setup... SP MK17/G250V... She is truly happy and content...

But God help me if she finds the new AR15 that I picked up yesterday, or checks my bank account and sees the purchase, not too mention the new tonneau cover for the Z71... I'll be buying her own dive boat and crew...

Yes, sneaking into the 'gents' section of this--but hell! I need to date a diver with a checking account! Or just a large credit card! I can find things to get angry about, easily!

Ha, and one last comment in the 'man law' sector: Oh how many of you are naiive!!! We aren't that difficult! But the "5" rule? Pa-hahahaha-haha. Don't ever try to put an argument on a time schedule, you're asking for pain!

I am with you DollFin. I surrender my chick card now.

In many cases, the "bad side" is because I have felt undermined or undervalued in the relationship. I would much rather you listen to my point of view with your full attention and try to understand my perspective on why I felt slighted, rather than feed me full of some calorie laden meal and provide me with false expectations that you 1) heard and 2) gave a damn!

Eat chili and caggage for lunch and dinner. When you go to bed, hold her head under the covers and tell her she can't come out until she's not mad anymore.

When you mess up own up and move on. Save the flowers for no reason at all, just when you're thinking of her! I brought flowers home once and my daughter said "What did you do to my mommy?" To which my wife replied "Daddy doesn't bring flowers when he's bad". That's how to treat your woman. Girls?
