Stumbled on this on the internet thought I'd share...
He's thoughtless sometimes, leaving dirt on the floor, a mess in his wake and he never cleans up after himself. He is always focused and a good game of ball. He sometimes forgets his manners. Yet he is always the first to defend you and is always available for a hug. Does this sound like a man in your life or does it sound like your dog? We often compare men and dogs or women and cats.
Do you think this stereotype is true or just a myth? Or maybe there are a few things that are true. Do you think men prefer dogs over cats? Do women prefer cats over dogs? Is this a reflection of our personalities? Decide for yourself. Maybe men really are dogs!
You know what he's going to do. And even if you tell him not to, he does it anyway and gives you an adorable look that says, “Oh gee, I just forgot not to do that.” Then you go clean the mess he made while he darts away.
The most maddening thing is, he really did forget. And he'll forget again.
Despite your best efforts, his personal hygiene is a little lacking. It just doesn't occur to him that you may not appreciate snuggling with someone who has been running around all day and needs a bath. He neglects his teeth and gets annoyed when you try to do something about it.
At dinner, he wolfs down his food so fast you wonder if he really even noticed what he was eating. As far as you were concerned, the bringer of food, you disappeared the moment you set the food down. But as soon as he finished, it's time for more fun – even if you're still eating.
Man or dog? If the above description leaves you confused as to which we're referring to, you're not alone. Either out loud, whispered among themselves in the bathroom or within private thoughts, women know that men and dogs share many traits.
There's the constant need for approval to prop up fragile egos; the child-like letdown when women just don't want to play; and the sudden reversal to joy when they do. Food is heaven – especially meat. In fact, that's when a man's attention is most focused because all other times guys are distracted – often by a car.
For many women, life with men would be much better if they could extend the man/dog analogy a step further to deliberate breeding for specific traits and purposes. But we're not quite there yet.
Are Women Cats?
If men are dogs, the natural question is: are women cats? Well, let's consider the feline temperament:
• Unpredictable. You never know what's going to tick off a cat. On the other hand, affection and attention often comes at odd moments. Sound like anyone familiar, guys?
• Fastidious. After eating, drinking or even touching you, a cat immediately tries to remove all traces with thorough washing. The lady in your life feels the same way. With a dog like you, who could blame her?
• Grace. Lithe and precise, cats can glide up on you without you ever knowing.
Cats are also famous for their jealousy. Add another cat to your one-cat household and see what happens. The fur will fly and you'll find yourself caught in the middle. So how do people of such different temperaments get and stay together?
If we knew that, we'd know everything.
[quote=Xamen13"][quote="gsicard]Good one.. but I would propose the oposite - could dogs be men.[/quote]
By definition of terms, I think more dogs meet the requirement for being a real man than humans.[/quote]
LOL in this world full of deranged men you might have a point there. 8O
[quote=dingobat]All women like cats. And most men like cats to catch the woman who likes cats. but when she's not looking men kick the cat. Cats have been known to be responsible for clearing house space. They are supposed to take away negative energies. but I figure that is only if ya like em. I hate cats. They kill the wild life. and here in Oz there are many native animals that the cats get to. In fact there is a plague of them on the Nullabor Plain. Cats as big as dingo's. The cats are that big that they'd probably win in a cat/dog fight.
However, men do make excellent pets so maybe men are really dogs in disguise. Ah but which is more faithful and loyal?[/quote]
ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT DINGO PUPS OR OVERSIZED CATS
And the oldest one of course is, the one I guess, where a man wish he really were a dog.
Why does a dog lick his balls?
Because he can.[/quote] That reminds me of a joke. 2 bums were walking on the side walk. They came across a dog licking his balls. The one bum says to the other, "I wish I could do that". The other says, "well if you pat the dog on the head, maybe he'll let you". :lol: :lol:
