    “that should give him 50 bonus points right there”

    I really don’t see why it should.

    I continue to be puzzled as to why women have to be perfect but if men are just “decent citizens” — never mind if they stomp all over your feelings with their bad behavior and failure to communicate and “exit sign” madness, and then we’re told by dating “experts” that “that’s how men are” instead of those “experts” going to men and saying “You know, that kind of behavior isn’t okay” — we’re supposed to shower them with “bonus points”.

    Why are women continually encouraged — by “experts”, no less — to put up with so much less?
