When text messaging became part of my life, I grasped the concept with shaky hands. I just recently learned with great frustration how to use the typen text and not the hen pecking that I preferred to use, and that only came about by mistake. I must have pushed the wrong button and walla, I am stuck learning the other type of typing.
I used to judge men and whether I would date them or not by if they would text or call. I found that men that would text me mostly had trouble communicating in person. (Generalizing and stereotyping here of course)but that is what I found to be the case for the most part.
I personally love the concept when it comes to finding something out that is quick and general. It is a great way to get to the point and avoid real and lengthy conversation. It is also a good way to ignore someone without being too rude. Oh, I never got that text or I must have missed that one. ;)
But here is my question and I am kind of directing this to the guys out there. Now, I am not bitching, it is just something that I don't , nor do my friends do.
Do you randomly text your friends with one to two words back and forth for hours?
Husband: Fag lick
Husbands Friend: Ball sucker
Husband: Butt Pirate
Husbands Friend: Nut Sack
This can literally go on for hours at a time and I don't get it. My husband and his friends are all in their mid to late 40's. Is this a guy thing and because I am a woman I just don't get it?
Here is another question that I am just going to throw out there.
Is there an age or a situation, such as marriage, when a guy stops getting called a pussy for not hanging out and getting drunk with his boys every night? Being a girl, I know that when my girlfriends either have babies or get married, they get taken off of the random, shit giving comments when they say no to a night out. I know that guys are different and are chastised for being with a chick too much, but I thought this was more in their teens, twenties and maybe thirties if not married.
Now, just to specify, I love to give my friends random shit here and there, and I truly believe that no matter if you are married and have 100 kids, that you still need space and friends and a few beers with peers often. But I don't remember my dad or any other older men figures in my life when I was growing up being called a pussy for not drinking every night with the boys.
