    And they won’t tell you why they are mad, and they get mad that you don’t know why.

    And they NEVER ever forget it either. 20 years later they’ll bring it, for the umpteenth time.

    At first I misread this as Flight or Fight;
    but the cartoon is correct.

    Sometimes we’re just mad about something that has nothing to do with the man in the house…and some women will tell you what they are mad about, I never keep my man in the dark about that…

    I’ve encountered that behavior from men waaay more than I’ve ever done it.

    I hate games, and I refuse to play.
    I tell people everything, even when I shouldn’t, I guess…
    and then I forget about it.

    Men say they want that but turn out to prefer coyness and guessing games….

    I remember telling an ex he remembered my life better than I did, cos he had a mental list of everything I ever did wrong.

    I don’t play those games but there is always something for them to get mad about. Maybe they like conflict.

    Susan (and all) – I think it’s easy for us to look at the other sex (or any other person) and more easily read into their behavior.

    I think we all have our moods and quirks that we don’t see as readily as others see it in us.

    I’m sure my moods and actions are WAY more prevalent than I’d like to admit… :-)

    Both my grandmother and my late husband used to play the “I’m angery and if you can’t figure out why, I’m not going to tell you” game. I finally told the late and unlamented that HE didn’t KNOW why he was angry, and I couldn’t be bothered figuring it out for him. Gardenwitch is correct – he thrived on the conflict, so the game stopped.

    : ) Last time I remember seeing those anger games was from girls in the third grade. Thank goodness I have no one in my life who thrives on that silliness! (Hubby and I just celebrated our happy 36th!)

    If she’s freaking out, hug her and give her chocolate. If she’s growling, toss the chocolate from a safe distance.

    If you don’t know, I’m not going to tell you.

    I think each relationship is unique. Its’ up to the individuals to figure it out and work it out. Its’ part of the experience.

    That’s not an “experienced husband,” that’s a wimp running off to hide. Not a nice trait in a partner. If he thinks he did something to upset her, he needs to face her and talk. It might not even be about him. Didn’t he learn as a kid that hiding makes things worse.
    How hard would it be to go up behind her, but his hands on her shoulders and ask, “Honey, it looks like something’s bothering you. Can I help?”
