    Why is it that in a relationship, it's ok for the woman to go ogling over a celebrity or whatever, but if the guy does it, suddenly it's hurtful to the woman in said relationship?

    Does the woman think that just because the celebrity is unobtainable that the ogling is somehow justified? Do women not understand the meaning of 'double standards,' or hypocrisy? Am I categorizing this into sexes when it should be taken on a case-by-case?

    Late to this party, but there should be no difference; if the ogling is to the same degree from either party, then the result should be the same. The difference would be how far each partner would take it if it were say, a hot co-worker instead.

    And that's more about possessiveness, jealousy, trust and insecurity issues that the individuals would have to work out. Please don't categorize all women into the same category of petty double standards and hypocrisy, though. Not all women are possessive, hypocritical and insecure in the same way that not all men are misogynistic, womanizing philanderers.

    I've been with plenty of men who behave the way women do in the scenario you've mentioned and it's equally hypocritical and annoying.

    Well.. I did say "Why is it that in a relationship, it's ok for the woman to go ogling." But you'll notice I then wondered aloud "Am I categorizing this into sexes when it should be taken on a case-by-case?"

    Nowdays I'm noticing a lot of battle of the sexes going on. "Men are *insert baloney here*," or "Women are *insert baloney here*."

    I don't buy into it and I wish all people everywhere would stop doing it. It's "all men are like this," or "all women are like that." Nope. If you had a bad experience with someone, you had a bad experience with an individual. Don't lump a bunch of other people you don't know into a negative category.

    I hope that clears things up.

    She 's growing bored 😔. I can tell. With the way the communication has been going between us. And the look on her face the last time we talked, says it.

    Kinda begs the question, then, of why she wants to keep things going.

    I've heard of "short-staffed" but "no-staff??"

    When you start growing out of your childhood and become an adult with responsibilities and bills, how do you just not show up to work?

    Today was the first day in a couple years that my grandchildren were able to attend school with no mask.
    I’m very happy for them.

    Wondering why my former classmates ask me for help rather than getting help from others still enrolled in the course or be offered some from the school

    Deep thoughts about the future tonight. Big changes coming in the next month between a job change and returning to school for a new degree, planning for getting out of debt and for taking my kids on a nice vacation, thinking about what the possibilities for the future are for my relationship…

    These headaches.
    If they weren’t right behind my eyeballs I’d be worried.
