Stark, raving, mad

Making women angry

I guess some men do say things deliberately to make women angry, or stark raving mad!

I am not sure why this happens, but it could be in the nature of the sexes--this is the way men and women operate; they say things and then kiss and make up and it goes on in a vicious unending circle.

But the question is purposely phrased as to put the onus on men, as they are the culprits in the sex equation. Its them or some of the men who go out of their way to make women really angry or livid.

Maybe there is a bit of masochism involved their somewhere on the part of men, a slight touch of sadism, though this is not inferred in the question. But there is also a masochist thread in women, or at least some of them.

But clearly men who go out of their way to make women angry suffer from some form of abnormality behavior. But again you could say that about the other sex. Whilst at face value this may be true, there maybe more than meets the eye.

Could it be men make women angry for titillation, stimulation, what is called 'soft petting' or sexual reasons.

Well, there is no accounting for taste, and one never knows how far men go for kicks or gratification, hoping that if women become angry, real torrid love, mad, passionate scenes follow afterwards is another perspective to follow.

The plain fact as well is that as people mellow into middle age, their "argumentative" side can well take over, with the husband feeling increasingly inclined to make his wife/woman more angry for the sake of it.

I know if they love each other, and are understanding 'the making her mad' aspect is less likely to happen. But life is a funny thing, it moves in mysterious ways. What starts off as love, could well end in hate, or irritation about the other self, particularly as biological changes in the body set in. The next question of course is do people get sick of each other and want change.

So there is no clear-cut way of answering this question. I don't think men set out deliberately to make women angry, some of course do, but this is not the prevailing view. However, you never know with relationships being so fluid.

Interesting topic. I don't know the answer either, but wouldn't it be good if we never tried to anger each other. Life can be hard enough as it is.

Very true but we can't because we are only human, and this is what humans do best, nitpick at each other

When I was a girl, my father said that his father enjoyed nitpicking. One nigh he woke my granny and said, "Olivia, wake up and let's fuss!"

He was a devoted father and husband but had an Archer Bunker way of communicating. I suppose there are many reasons for men making a woman angry, but I have no idea what the prevailing reason is. I have heard many women say when a man wants to get out of the house without a protest, he creates an argument, angers the woman, and leaves on the excuse that she has caused him to require time out. So, he goes.

What an interesting subject!
