Posting will be re-opened when I feel like it.

LOL

Read a lot of these, but it's a good refresher, esp since I obviously haven't internalized a damn thing...

Haven't read this one about The Light Switch Effect, and it hit home.

Women will literally re-write history, even as it's happening.

For example, this morning, we're getting ready for the day. Wife is dressed, I'm about to hop in the shower. The kid starts stirring. Time to get her ready. Wife says...

"Hop in the shower babe. I got her."

"OK. I've set everything up in the front (to get the baby ready)."

"No. I set everything up in the front."

Now mind you, when I woke up, there was nothing in the living room. She had laid the clothes out and dassit.

There were no diapers. I had to get those. There was no blanket. I went, got that, and laid it out on the floor. Grabbed the wipes. Got the kids breakfast ready. Refilled her sippy cup with water. Turned on her favorite morning program. TURNED ON THE DAMN LIGHTS cause it was still dark.

All my wife did was lay out the friggin' clothes.

"Oh," she said. "You mean you got the rest of it ready."

I just laughed and walked off, into the bathroom. I marvel at their ability to do this, honestly. I'm almost envious.

"No. I set everything up in the front."

You have to start keeping these comments to yourself. What good do they do? Did you want mommy to give you a pat on the back for being such a good boy? Just STFU and go on about your day. If you have to talk about and call attention to all the things you are doing then you are doing it wrong. This was a hard one for me to learn, but it works. Remember, be attractive, don't be unattractive. Even if you did 99% of the work, stating it like you did above makes you come off like a toddler.

And to comment on the Light Switch Effect, I did notice that my wife's memories during PMS, no matter how irrational, always stuck with her even if she could see them through more rational eyes days, weeks, or months later. She would always remember the way that she felt over the actual events. I just didn't have a theory or an explanation like the RP provides.

Anyways, that is my bit of advice for you. Once you start getting past all the petty bullshit and comments things usually start getting better. If you are making those comments you are giving too many fucks about what she thinks.

I struggled (and I'm still struggling sometimes) about this too. I rarely talk about my work, only when there's a major event.

At home, in the past few months, I almost completely stopped talking about what I had done, what I was doing, or what I intended to do (slipped some times, but not often). This is just the very core of STFU.

The trick I use before doing something is "Would I do it if I lived alone" ? If yes, I do it and I STFU about it, because it needed to be done. I shall confess that from time to time I feel butthurt because I end up doing something big, and she doesn't even seem to notice. This has been so far the best reminder of women's nature, and that my wife is no unicorn...

I remember reading somewhere, either here on the Subs or the Sidebar, to not expect to get credit for anything. They're not wired to notice or appreciate the things we do. It's all about them - solipsism.

Couple that with the Light Switch Effect, and she's gonna forget you ever did it in the first place.

Recently my wife listed a laundry list of things she "did for me" and dared me to do the same. In other words, she's keeping score (they all do). I engaged (dummy) and the first thing I said, she replied, "That wasn't for me, that was for Daughter."

I realized what was going on - she was ready to shoot everything down - so I ejected. It was a no-win situation. Similar situation happened with my ex. AWALT.

[–]Marcus_Aurtrillius0 points1 point  (2 children) | Copy

Good point. I didn't say it looking for validation. It was purely logistical. "OK, you're gonna change her? Well everything is ready..." Not in a, "look how high i can jump mommy!" Kind of way.

I get it though, and you're 100% right. Men do, women talk. I need to break this habit. Goes in the same category as telling her what you did at work. "I did XY and Z today! Aren't I a good boy?!" I broke that habit. Need to do the same for stuff around the house.

Just remembered I did this about a month ago, when I put up new light fixtures in the living room. They were gone when I did it. They came back home... "Notice anything different?" God, i suck!

The ability to delegate is super key in that situation

Q: Do you want to be responsible or do you want me to be?

If you're going to be responsible, be responsible. If you're not, don't be. Really simple.

But some guys can't stand being on the sideline so they butt in halfway through and want credit - and end up butthurt when they don't get any because they weren't invited in the first place. (Your situation)

[–]Marcus_Aurtrillius0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Not really my situation. I've had this routine for the last 3 weeks every morning while Wife was in the shower. It wasn't something new I did that day. Only difference was she put the clothes out first this time. Usually that's last.

For a female of any species to facilitate a methodology for breeding with the best genetic partner she’s able to attract AND to ensure her own and her offspring’s survival with the best provisioning partner; this is an evolutionary jackpot.<

This is an excellent reminder that the MRP sexual strategy is focused on only half of her strategy.

Her Af/bb behaviour is totally predictable and understandable from an evolutionary sense.

As men we can choose to provision for few offspring (BB) or go for low provisioning of a higher number of offspring (AF ie, to fuck around)

I also recommend reading through the entire archive of IllimitableMen as well.

Good find.
