I guess we're interpreting her post differently. I didn't think she was making a blanket statement that ALL men were disappointing. I thought she was only referring to the men in her life.



I don't know lol. Do you think it was intentional from the get-go?
Seems pretty much like a blanket statement to me. I'm over it though. Let's move on.

I just finished this book. The only thing I didn't like about it was in the afterward they referred to the readers as Sir or Madam, rather than the old 'Constant Readers' I so like (maybe because he co-wrote with his son and that phrase is in his exclusive domain). I don't think they added anything new to the old gender difference argument, but it was nice to see it restated in a very good story form. If there were more honour and sacrifice there would be a lot less divorce! I don't know about love though, that's a tough one to define. My wife said this is good and I can post it! Thanks honey!

You remind me of one of my best friends. He's the boss in his house and he knows so cause he asked his wife.
