In my circle of friends (and most women) ive noticed there are 2 types of women when it comes to how we act/re-act towards men when in a relationship 1. The woman who isn't afraid to voice her disapproval. Telling the man he is an asshole if he has forgotten a special occasion and telling him he had better find a way of correcting it. Or even telling him a occasion is approaching and that he had better organise something 2. And the women i like to refer to as "the manipulators". If something doesn't go their way they wont voice their issue but instead will cry, sulk, with hold intimacy etc untill their man gives in and they get their way. These women are also great liars (bending the truth) and will say whatever they need to to make sure at the end of the day they dont put themselves in a negative light I am quite proud to consider myself in the first catagory even though this often gets me referred to as a bitch or demanding, however thats just me and id rather be a bitch then have my issues go unheard and play games. Thing is i have come to realize that most of my friend that have stayed in long term relationship fall into the catagory of manipulators. This is beyond me as i thought men were smarter then to fall for the crying routine. And i thought women were now stronger and were confident in having a say and an opinion. Do we still live in a society where women aren't supposed to voice their disapproval and are better off playing the victim?
