Where else could they have come from if not from that planet about which everything is ambiguous-be it existence of life or the origin of name?!

Now here's the 'MEN ARE FROM MARS…REALLY!!!' for dummies- First Edition, published by Dreamodrome Publishers, ISBN *!~%^@ Copyright Sandhya Ramachandran a.k.a. The Dreamy Dryad(regd.)

1> They have SIMPLE BASIC tastes.

Meaning- all they can have are BASIC INSTINCTS- animal ishtyle!

2> They are DUMB.

They cannot get it when a girl is interested in them and they never get it when the girl throws them off her back. They insist on behaving contrary to requirements.


They think not of your feelings, figure not your thoughts, care not about your image and self-esteem!

4> They just want FUN out of life!

If they drink alcohol the quantity of Indian Ocean, they still INSIST on driving- cos it's FUN!!!

If they make a fool of you in front of the world, STILL don't realize you are hurt even if you blare the message clear and booming on a loudspeaker and CONTINUE to act as if nothing happened- it was just for FUN!!!

If they promise you something, forget it and ask a sorry as serious as a 'hi', it was just for FUN!!!

5> They have an EQ=ZILCH!!!

The number zero was invented for the sole purpose of equating their emotional quotients to! They don't feel, emote or experience!

And if they do…. Then here's the micro mini guide to the micro-micro-micro emotions a guy feels…

He looks upset === > he is making fun of you

He calls you his 'best friend' == > He thinks you are 'a big nut case'.

He asks you 'won't you at least do this little help? == > He means 'Please make a fool of yourself'

He tells you 'We'll surely finish the work tomorrow'== > 'I'm not going to be around tomorrow'

'I'm busy' == > 'I'm jobless but TOTALLY NOT INTERESTED in ANY possible communication with you, about you or for you!!!'

6>Men lie a LOTTTTTT and are DAMN GOOD at it!!!

They just want to save their skin or their GUY friend's! That they CAN'T lie when it is a girl's skin to be saved is a different matter- it becomes a question of morals, values and ethics then!!!

7>Men LOVE men!

If you find a man crying, if you find him lauging; if he's helping, if he's killing- it is ALL for other fellow MEN! All that men LOVE women is strictly to satisfy carnal desires! NOTHING ELSE!!!

8> Men lovvvvvvvve EXCUSES!!!

If they break a jug – it is an accident

If you do- 'clumsy, careless, dumb!!!'

If they were late- the f@#!ing bus was late!

If you are late- you take their time for granted.

If they don't call back- I was held up/ traveling/ busy/ in a conference/ someone had a problem or they give their vague statement:


(Oh yeah??? Situations were bad? Try me… cos Bingo! They're at their WORST here!)


If you smile at him, go an extra mile, support him-You love him!

If he does that- He's JUST your best friend!

If you call him up, message him a thoudsand-hundred times and give two hundred miscalls- you are DESPERATE for attention!!!

If he does ditto- he's frantically trying to reach you. THAT"S ALL!!!!!!!

10> Men HURT Women

By the little things they do for THEIR fun.

By the little petty promises they make to SHUT US up!

By the little sweet nothings they say to get their work done.

By the little actions they do to temporarily escape trouble.

By the little pranks they play at your cost.

By the little little things that break our hearts, wring our souls and handicap us… sometimes for life!

And the men for whom this post was intended for are NEVER going to understand even if they read this that it is meant for them!

Oh! come on! girls aren't better either. There are a few jerks running around, but to generalize men as a whole isn't fair.

It is like 'He Says' and 'She says'.Only there isn't a 'He says' here!!!

danku danku!!! :D

Read the disclaimer on top!!! :D It is intented for a specific few!!! :P

I know!!! Akki... hugsssss!!! :(

ck said...

It doesn't look like you targeted those few guys. It's more like you vented out your frustrations on the male species ,coz a few pissed you off. Anyways I hope you feel better now.

My frustration was intended only for a few. Maybe it's harsh for the rest, but well, it really was unintentional! And yeah.. hopefully i get a better perspective soon! That's for the MENfolk to prove to me they ain't this bad after all!!! :D
