I don't care much for compliments... but I like to be agreed with.
😅
Actually the more I think about it the more this seems right. Men like to be correct, they like to be the ones to supply relevant information in a given situation and they like for people to acknowledge that they contributed something to the situation.

Maybe that's why so many men argue in the BDF. They aren't getting the validation they want. All they get is other men telling them they are wrong and stupid and pharisees and etc. So they keep on arguing to try to prove they are right about something.

Hahaha that's a good one....

I was thinking of their hair....never touch their hair...anyway, they're very fond of their hair with all the greasy gel and the position the tresses are....I can't even form the words right now...my goodness....but a compliment would really be appreciated for their hair...hehe

On I know just what you mean. There is a 21 year old young man on my team at
work. He loves his hair. He asked us to get him hair straighteners for his 21st birthday.
Recently he decided to get his hair cut but only to number 2 (not number 1) and use
the opportunity to raise some money for a good cause by getting people to sponsor him
to get it cut short.

I told him if he got a number 2 haircut and dyed it purple I would pay for his hair cut.
Sadly he didn’t take me up on the offer! Can’t think why, purple is a great colour. Lol

What if he dyed it Britain blue? Would you still have paid for it?

Funny story...

But would you mind explaining what number 1 and 2 means? :oops:

It’s not just men, it’s women too but I think whereas men just argue and argue and
are determined to get the last word. Women after a while just give you the silent
treatment and never want to speak to you again. At least now you know how to
deal with a nagging wife!

Those are guard length numbers. Number 1 is very short, like a 16th of an inch. Number 2 is an 8th of an inch. That's how long the hair left on your head is.

Yes, good information. Deal with a nagging wife by continuing to argue with her until she goes away and leaves me in peace. Right. Got it.

Awww you young romantic you. Planning anything nice together for Valentine’s Day.
Just the usual candy, card and flowers for my honey. I will give her an extra measure of affection as well. :)
