So, you know when you break-up with a bf of a couple years because he doesn’t want to marry you and then he marries the chick he meets 2 months later? Well, apparently this article explains it all.
Men’s commitment issues have to do with a theory that they are NYC taxi drivers. They work hard all day, but when they’re done, they’re done. Meaning men will date and date to their hearts content and when they’re tired of dating they stick to the woman who happens to be there when they’re done.
Now I don’t want to be a complete cynic but this makes sense. Why else would a man not be satisfied by the back-breaking girlfriend who’s been his everything for years and yet the girl can’t get anything out of the guy? Maybe because he’s just not ready, it’s not that he doesn’t love nor that he doesn’t entirely appreciate you, but guys aren’t quick to settle. They like cruising.
But to not completely kill the romance, does a guy really just settle? Is all the affection, love and effort that girls pour into relationships a complete waste of time? Should women be just as big of jerks as men are, because it doesn’t really matter in the end?
I don’t think so because I believe that we all have the ability to charm someone and I think some men have to have some common sense and see a great thing when he has it . . . or maybe not because when I think about how many of those “he didn’t appreciate me until he couldn’t have me” stories have we heard? Many. But I guess this the reason, men don’t appreciate what they have but when they stop and are ready to settle the ideal girl is gone because he wasn’t smart enough to keep her.
But why would men shoot themselves in the foot like that? They have to be programmed that way. In their mind it’s “My way or the highway.” You have to be on their playing field which is when they’re ready then they’ll give you that commitment, but are women suppose to sit around and wait for the guy to come around?
Absolutely not! This is when we get the satisfaction of their regret. Sure the guy will move on, but he’ll always hurt because he knows he should have kept you and that you were the best thing that ever happened to him, but he messed it up.
So ladies, just because men are NYC taxi drivers, it doesn’t mean you have to hop in and it certainly doesn’t mean you have to get kicked out when they’re done. When you see that the cab is either slowing down or driving dangerously, just get out before he forces you out.
