- Gender and Relationships
I know you have heard of them. Men having their own little get away rooms. All decked out in he latest electronics and comforts. I think there is even a show about designing them now. But when does it become to much? Sometimes it can be taken to the extreme.
My ex had one. It was our Den and it was a room that no one had to go through to get to anywhere else, so it was all his own. There was even a door leading outside. He came home from work went straight to his man cave and that is where he stayed til supper was ready, he even took his supper there at times. That room was the place he smoked, watched tv and for several years he slept there.
I have seen these rooms on several sitcoms lately. Even back when Home Improvement was on one of the episodes had a man cave bathroom with all the amenities. I have seen some of them with a Microwave, TV, Stereo systems, plush chairs, Refrigerator and I am sure there are more extensive ones as well.
As I sit here thinking, I ask myself, 'Are you jealous?' But I can honestly say 'No'. I would want someone to share a room like that with me and not of the same sex either. But then I am not a man, Thank goodness for that. I enjoy being a woman.
I had a friend that actually built a room in his back yard that was only his. I truly do not understand this. If it's to watch sports, or just party with your friends I find that kind of sad. Now if it a place to work, or write, yes I find that useful as you need the solitude for these tasks. But myself personally I would want to enjoy a ball game with my man as I love sports and too I would want to party with him as well. I admit we all need time to ourselves to refill and clear our minds, but I would not want a room all to myself with all that tech, it seems a kind of lonely thing to me.
So tell me, do you vote yes or no on 'Man Caves'? I am interested in your take on this: both men and women.
