Ok everyone knows girls like guys who are independent, a "challenge," whatever. It's attractive when a guy has a backbone and can tell a girl "no," etc. Chicks will pursue single men who are like this. It's also good for men to maintain their backbone in relationships. It keeps them from turning into bitch pushovers like Angela's boyfriend Andy, on "the Office." He's a whipped little bitch who is engaged to her and still hasn't seen her naked despite the fact that she's still fucking her ex, Dwight Schrute. So. Say a guy is in a relationship but he's kind of a bitch. I see this a lot. Suddenly the guy grows some balls and starts acting like a man, telling his gf "no" and stuff. And then she gets all bitchy? What is that all about? Aren't chicks supposed to respond favorably to that? My friend's gf just left him (they lived together) because for the last 2 years he was a total bitch and let her run the show, and just recently he realized how much bullshit that was and started standing up to her, telling her "no," etc., and he just emailed me and told me she packed up her shit and left. And I bet she goes and gets attracted to another guy who embodies those masculine characteristics that she just left my friend for displaying. I need some clarification on this.
