No I totally know men like this. Men who were my friends while I was taken but as soon as I'm single and free they're all over my a55.

Yes, exactly! Like they can't even conceive that a woman could be interested in something that isn't strictly "woman's stuff".

I mean even more than that, though. I'm talking guys who have never even hung out with a woman unless it was a date or in a big group. Like we'll talk because we're co-workers, but that's as far as conversations with a woman go.
I just find that kind of disturbing. I prefer my female friends, but I've certainly been friends with men and I don't view them as these "other" creatures that lead totally different, unrelatable lives to my own. I feel like what it comes down to is that they don't see me as a person and someone who can be on their level.

Yes, I would agree with that.

I also find myself a very wary of men who don't have a sister/sisters, for similar reasons.

ETA: Obviously it's not their fault that they don't have a sister. But that doesn't make me side-eye at them any less.

I knew lots of guys like this in college. It was a Christian school, and a lot of them were raised that you pretty much had no use for a woman unless you were trying to date her to marry her. They tended to put women on these weird pedestals, like they were all Virgin Mary avatars or something (unless she happened to be flirty and then she was a sl*t that you could treat any way you liked). We'd be having class discussions and I'd express an opinion or know some fact and they'd all be blown away. I cannot even tell you the number of times I've heard statements like, "You're not like a typical girl. You think like a man."

OMG! Are you telling me my son may someday stand a chance with a woman (if he wants, of course) because he has 3 sisters even though he will likely be on the short side?

Uh, didn't you get the memo? We fabulous, shallow women have unforgiving standards about things like height. Any man who isn't 6' tall is disregarded no matter what. I actually carry a tape measure with me at all times.

I personally hate vertically challenged men! How dare they have the nerve to exist, and occasionally wear high heels while dancing.

My son, the only child of my womb-womanly-loins, is
doomed. Alas, all is lost...unless, you count the fact that we have 3 female cats....does count for something besides his mom being the crazy cat lady?

I definitely have come across men like this. IMO this mentality is more entrenched with older men because they are more likely to have grown up with the idea that they are more equal than women and that women aren't whole human beings. Trying to be friends with men at my age is akin to discovering the cure for cancer.

That should be your first clue. Haha. You do remember that you are in the Smoky Mountains, right?

^ Do note the last part is (of course) all internal dialogue. The calls are pretty cute.
