Why are girls so weird?
My real SO, not one of my many e-boos (Sorry I am a perpetual e-flirt), told me a story about when we first met. It really made me think that even my little piece of perfection (read: my girlfriend) was only slightly less crazy then the rest of you lol.
Tidbit of necessary information before I go on with the story: So there’s a really famous cake place near my house. It’s called “Cake Man Raven”. It’s a little place on Fulton St. that only sells about four different types of cake. It kind of reminds me of the Soup Nazi from Seinfeld.
So me and the now gf were just talking at the time. We had had coffee a few times near where she goes to school. One time in conversation I mention where I live and the proximity to Cake Man Raven. From this point on, she would always drop hints about how during one of our coffee dates that I should bring her a slice of cakes. I never did because at $6 a slice a then unemployed Peyso could not afford it. So I never brought her any slice of cake. We get together despite me not picking up on the signal.
Almost 8 months later, me and the SO are talking and she says
SO: “When we first started talking I dropped hints for you to bring me cake…. And I’M GLAD YOU DIDN’T”. (She didn’t scream it but I capitalized it to show that this is the part of the conversation that bugs me out.) “If you would have brought the cake, that means that I would have been able to manipulate you and I would have cut you off then”
Peyso: “So I’m done trying to catch your womanly signals”
SO: “You stop catching my signals and we’re having issues”
Peyso: (Confused as hell)
SO: “You’re my boyf, you’re suppose to do those things”
Peyso: (I quit speaking and go to sleep)
If this conversation doesn’t highlight the nuttiness that is woman, I don’t know what else is. She wants me to have qualities that I could not show during our courting period because if I did she would have cut me off. How do you find out if the guy you’re talking to is right for you then? You want guys who are observant and what not but then when they show you that they are you deem them able to be manipulated? NUTTY!!
Then she also knowingly played games and forced me to take her little manipulation test. Why ya be doing that?
I don’t know what the point of this story was, I just wanted to show that ya be nutty sometimes. Do dudes just have some nutty (NPI) that we do as a whole?
