I refuse

To be talked to like someone's wife ever again.

No really; I mean that. What gives men the right - nay, empowerment - to think they can say any such thing in any way and get away with it?! It's bad enough /when/ you're married. But when you're not...

No. Just no.

is there a face slap in someone's future?

Cold shoulder, definitely. Sick of that. There's no reason to talk to anyone like that ever. Not even when you DO have the right to be angry (which in this case, there wasn't a reason).
Blah.

Despite how it's communicated, I hate it and won't be a knowing party to *that* type of communication ever, be it a friend or whatev, ya know? You've been married, so you know what I'm talking about. That condescending, "I-know-better-than-you-so-I'll-talk-to-you-however-I-want" kind of thing. It makes me ill. The beautiful thing about being single is that you DON'T have to tolerate being talked to like that, you still have "freedoms" and if you don't want to be all social, you can hide away in your own domain. Being married kind of kills that, and you're forced to stay up and, say, argue about something. I don't want to be trapped in a corner like that, ya know?

i know exactly what you mean. which is why the thought of getting married again kinda unnerves me, b/c sometimes there are arguments that are so stupid they really deserve no resolution. i'm not against arguing/listening to someone else's position... there are just some arguments that end up being too stupid to die

I believe that 100% of those arguments are started/had because of disrespect. So I feel the same way.

and why is it that a lot of couples, even though they seem to get along great initially, eventually end up being contemptuous to one another? is it feeling compelled to have to be with that person for every minute of the live long day? i'm definitely not what you could call a "smothering boyfriend" and i guess i just assume that b/c i want some independence means the other person would want some as well. stupid me, experience has taught me differently. even when the other person tells you "they don't mind if you do your own thing"

That's common for men - to want "space". I want it, too, and even though I say I want it, in reality I don't feel - in the end - I'll end up getting it. Being disrespected or smothered will run me off every time. Then again, I have a list of things that'll run me off. Thrice bitten, thrice shy or something.

Hey you! How are you doing?

What was said, and by whom?

*hugs*

Hey, you. I've been sickkkkkkkk. Doesn't matter what was said by whom; but I hate the way married couples interact, the way they talk to each other, etc., and was *reminded* of it last night. I'm not falling into that nightmare again. After three failed marriages, I've learned a few things. That would be one of them.

How are /you/? How's the new job?

New job is barely giving me space to breathe...

But I'm still loving it :D

I hope it levels out for ya. Otherwise, you'll burn out too quick! Glad you're digging it, though :D

Words.

Here is Belladonna, the Lady of the Rocks,
The lady of situations.
Here is the man with three staves, and here the Wheel,
And here is the one-eyed merchant, and this card
Which is blank, is something that he carries on his back,
Which I am forbidden to see. I do not find
The Hanged Man. Fear death by water.
I see crowds of people, walking round in a ring.
Thank you. If you see dear Mrs. Equitone,
Tell her I bring the horoscope myself;

One must be so careful these days.
