I’ve been trying to work on my style since I’ve been indicted for being aggressive! But the hell with it, I barely recognize myself, so if you feel offended or by any chance my aggressive language touches you, please feel free to close the window! You do know that no one’s forcing you to read my blog. Cheers.
Carrying on, this article is inspired by personal experiences with men as much as countless stories of my girlfriends’. I’m sure you all read articles about this matter, what’s different about this one is that I highlighted unique events that occurred many times but no one talked about. Since I gave up dating a while ago, I recently decided to give it another shot to see what’s out there and how much I’ve been missing on. The reason why I gave up dating is because I figured that, (judging by experiences, I repeat) men are all the same, without any exception! I’m very much aware of the danger of generalization, and how a writer should avoid it, hence how dare I generalize? Well, I broke the rules, sue me critic!
Dear Freud, let me just start by saying that NO, my anger towards this hideous fact is not due to the ‘penis envy’ I secretly have! I believe women are more powerful than men! Remember the apple? Yea we remember it too! Now answering your question on what do women want? It would be: A normal man! But wait, where did all the normal men go?! I know there’s more in life than just the subject of relationships, but ironically that’s the most interesting and common issue that concerns everyone. I’m not sure how much you agree with me but nowadays it’s impossible to find a man to share your moments with, trust and cherish. I think that’s due to the fact that everyone’s becoming so weird and aggressive! I mean think about it, we Lebanese people walk down the street as if we own it: “ Yo make some space I’m passing through!”We look so confident and arrogant that you need to buy a ticket and stand in line in order to talk to us! Look around, we’re surrounded by snobbish people trying to impress everyone either with the money they pretend to have or the uniqueness they wish they had; and by the end of the day, no one is truly satisfied, there’s ALWAYS something missing!!
U randomly meet a man, he seems normal, interesting and sometimes different. Give it a week and the mask will fall off and all is left to look at is his repulsiveness and the very bad manners he’s been raised on! Like calling you ‘babe’ just after you just met or trying to express how open-minded he is by complimenting some of your body parts, while you’re not sure you memorized his last name yet:
~Romantic dinner and you’re thinking: what the hell, I’ll give a shot; he seems like a gentleman, cute, educated and funny, then suddenly:
Woman: “The moon looks huge tonight”
Man:” Well, babe, that’s not the only thing looking huge, if you know what I mean (wink*)”
That’s sexual harassment dude! What the hell are you thinking! Do you expect a:”Yi khalaaas hihi” reaction?
Another awkward situation anyone is most likely to experience is when a friend wishes to break free from the ‘friends’ zone’ you’ve put him in! That’s when he starts to act weird, stupid and seeks out to come out funny but fails miserably! For instance, you’re having dinner at a hotel’s restaurant with your friends and your ‘I want to break free’ friend is there. After a couple of drinks, he becomes irresponsible for his deeds, trying to put the blame on alcohol! I don’t get why men think that after a couple of drinks women will transform into the wild beast they crave for, so they allow themselves to seize the moment, like throwing a joke such as” so the food was fine, how about we try the rooms now, ha, what do you say, ha??(Again with the annoying wink)” of course he thinks, he’s funny and hoping for a positive response, but instead you pretend to lose the sense of hearing anything! Does he get it? Not really, he repeats again! That’s when you lose your temper and become irresponsible for whatever comes out of insults and offends!
Other than that, we all have brothers, cousins and at least one male best friend! Get in a room with bunch of men, they will be gossiping in a way like you’ve never seen any woman doing it; talking about girls, like objects: “El layle behke hayde w bokra haydik”! Yea picking the right pair of shoes for their night! How pathetic! And the worst part is when they start inventing scenarios that only occurred in their sick imagination, referring to women as whores and bitches! (I believe you should leave such insults for us, you’ll sound less gay!)
Man 1: “Yea I know her I f*cked her couple of time “
Man 2: “No kidding! I did too!”
And the next thing you know the girl they’re talking about doesn’t even have a vagina!
Note: Kindly, Grow up!
Guy: Who’s that cutie in the picture with you?
You: My friend.
Guy: Introduce us!
You: Oh she’s married!
Guy: Heaven! Even better, I crave for married women, I just broke up with one, let’s fix a gathering tomorrow, say 8pm?
You: Euwww! Get a grip Juan el ghoul!
First of all, for the love of God, even if you’re our best friend and we adore you, this type of approaching shows nothing but how much you lack of your self confidence and how you can’t get a woman yourself! I don’t get why every time a Lebanese guy catches sight of a woman he gets an adrenaline rush and wants to meet her right away! Control-your-self! Statistically speaking and judging by the fact that we live in a country where every man amounts to 6 women, I think it’s about time you overcome yourself whenever you meet a woman! Don’t you think? Second, if you like someone and you try to get her jealous by showing interest in her friend; you’re on the wrong track love! It doesn’t work this way. The only thing we will be thinking of is how cheap and womanizer you are and that would only lead to: Lost of interest with a chair on your face!
Another annoying most common situation is when a man, in a ‘serious relationship’ hits on a single woman, using his favorite lines such as: “I’m lost!”, “I’m not convinced” or “the relationship is not going well”, of course next thing you know, he gets married to that same ‘I couldn’t stray from’ woman! Why does he do it? I’ll paraphrase using some of my male friends’ speeches regarding this matter:” you can’t eat banana for the rest of your life, there are so many other tasty fruits out there, don’t you agree? (Again with the annoying wink that I don’t really get)” Now, I don’t know who to blame first, the man for being such a low asshole or the girl for even considering such an approach! Here’s the sum up I came with: He’s definitely bored and not swayed by his girlfriend/wife who’s controlling him, yet he’s such a loser that he can’t break away! Since his magic no longer works on her, he tries it on a bored single woman who has nothing to lose nor to gain! Where does drama occur? When this relationshiT lasts more than a month, and the stupid girl starts to believe the stupid lies from the’ half the man’ she’s falling for and loses it:
Girl 1: He will leave her! I know it!
Girl 2: wake up! They’re married!
Girl 1: So what he doesn’t love her!
Girl 2: But they’re expecting a baby!
Girl 1: You know, I think that’s why he was forced to marry her!
Girl 2: They’ve been married for 2 years!!!!!
Girl 1: So what! So she’s been pregnant for 2 years! What’s wrong with u!?

There’s also the ‘fils a Maman et Papa’ with insecurities issues, threatened by the other gender, can’t make up a decision without consulting his parents, even if it’s as simple as deciding on a t-shirt’s color, thus imagine what his relationshits would be like! Of course there’s also the angel coming from above, probably still a virgin in his 40s because he wants to give his flower for someone special! But who wants that either! I can’t really elaborate examples on that one because I believe for such men it’s really hard to get a date in the first place!
Basically, most single Lebanese men are either losers or sex indirect abusers or simply craving for all women! Makes me question the reason why our Lebanese men have lost it! And I can only think of two things:
Sexual repression: The mother made her child fear sex, stalking him like his shadow, stopping him whenever he tries to touch himself yet treating him like a prince, feeding him with a golden spoon so that he thinks he’s’ the man with the penis’ (The Undefeatable)! When her little repressed angel grows up and realizes how normal and common it is to have sex and the amount of the easy and cheesy women out there, he gets excessively excited that he still hasn’t gotten over it, not even in his 30th! Just like a fat kid with a cupcake in the hand! That facial excitement that I’m sure you women experience when a man is staring at you and you know exactly what’s going on in his head… and elsewhere!
Easy Cheap women: Those women have created a policy in their head that says: “You are my equal therefore I am to do exactly what you do! You cheat; I cheat, you sleep with a lot of women; I get to sleep with a lot of men, you treat us like crap; expect to be treated the same!” Since the approach to such easy women is trouble-free, men tend to generalize (as well) and consider all women alike! As much as I applaud the equality matter, regardless, it’s important to use it suitably! A woman remains a lady! Stop being the typical EVE with the poisoned apple! You’re turning into the snake in that myth!
R-E-S-P-E-C-T: anyone familiar with this word anymore? Guess not!
I believe there’s a fine line between being a badass and a pervert! The examples mentioned above are the most interesting ones I’ve selected between thousands of other similar stories. At last, dear men, bear in mind that unless we’re looking at such a picture in a magazine, when we’re so much aware that the stare on that hot guy’s face isn’t intentionally aiming at us, it’s disgusting and not sexy. At all! Please stop giving us similar looks and thank you!
