mercy, mercy, me…please?: the four cruelest things women consistently do to men

cruel kerry

its a conspiracy. a c-o-n-spiracy.

you see, bobby brown was a prophet, a modern day nostradamus sent from God to warn us all of the merciless nature of the typical woman with his genius “don’t be cruel“. realizing this, the national council of cruel women siced a seemingly sweet-hearted whitney houston on him, stringing him out and making him lose sight of and forget his earthly purpose.

the very smart brothas at verysmartbrothas.com haven’t forgotten, though. taking the torch from grand minister brown, here’s the four cruelest things women consistently do to men

1. keeping friend-zoned guys around

not only are most women aware of the hapless friends they have who are patiently hoping for a never occurring opening, they have no problem with taking advantage of him once he’s in place…and giving him just enough of a tease of a potential opening to keep him there.

there are myriad ways that they do this, but my favorite is the wistfully nonchalant “i wish there were more guys were like you. why can’t i find a good man?” they’ll utter to the emasculated cat driving them to ikea so she can replace the bed her maintenance man just helped her break the night before

bastards.

2. asking loaded questions with no right answers

from “do you think i’m gaining weight?” to “do you find her attractive?”, women love asking men unanswerable questions more than fat asians love pumas. at this point, i either answer by repeating the question “why? do you think you’re gaining weight?” or just saying “jello”

3. flirting with happily attached men

seriously, i really think that they have clandestine national meetings underneath williams sonoma’s every other weekend to discuss which one of us are in a relationship (“at approximately 4:26 eastern standard time last sunday afternoon, james jackson of albany, new york proposed to his longtime girlfriend“), decide when and how exactly to attack (“he’s particularly vulnerable between 12:25 and 12:50 wednesday afternoons right before he has his lunch“), and delegate who’s going to be leading the charge (“kim, since he has a thing for leggy women and is particular about his cologne, we’re gonna need you to slide up to him in line at wendy’s this week and compliment his new kenneth cole black. he also has a thing for business women, so make sure to wear your bangingest pants suit. a slight french accent would be cool too, since he’s infatuated with haitian women“)

while this is extremely lecherous, it’s nowhere as bad as…

4. “the boyfriend”

the boyfriend is the name for the scenario that occurs when a man has spent an entire night talking to, laughing and dancing with, and getting to know a seemingly unbelievably compatible woman, only to be hit with the “hey, what type of movies do you like? i’m really into p*rn, tarentino flicks, scorsese, and old nba highlight films. i love spielberg  sometimes too, but not as much as my boyfriend does” right before he’s about to ask for her number.

bastards.

fellas, i know i’m missing a few. do you have any more examples of relentless cruelness you’d like to share? also, ladies, i need to know: why are you all so damn cruel? is it our fault, or did God just make you that way? is it nature, nurture, or the alcohol?

explain yourselves and sh*t

    the scenario that occurs when a man has spent an entire night talking to, laughing and dancing with, and getting to know a seemingly unbeliviably compatible woman, only to be hit with the “hey, what type of movies do you like? i’m really into p*rn, tarentino flicks, scorcese, and old nba highlight films. i love spielburg sometimes too, but not as much as my boyfriend does” right before he’s about to ask for her number.

    That’s why you should ask up front lol.

      thing is, women say that they hate when guys open conversations with that question.

          @The Champ,

          Hmmm. why would we get mad if you ask that? The question isn’t the problem. The problem starts when after I say Yea, I have a boyfriend, and the dude still keeps trying.

            @Selah, oh you all get mad. you all are all like, “why for come you would just go straight there? you don’t respeck me enuff to even ask me how i’m doin’ or try to get to know me first? i’m a laaaaaady.”

            yeah, something like that.

          • Selah

            @Panama Jackson,

            LOL I didn’t know we all spoke like that, too. I pretty much cosign everything Happy Meal said down there (insert arrow here)

            It shouldn’t be the first question…. but it should be in the top few, i think. Cuz if not, the women have the right to spring that ish on you.

            hmmm. Now that I think about it… I only say I have a boyfriend if after talkin to the guy for a while and I feel like he is a lame. Then it’s like NVM! I’m TAKEN! (which should be read as: TAKE YOUR LAME AZZ SOMEWHERE ELSE)

            lol@ the ESL bishes you be baggin. Who talks like that?!

            But I actually feel more disrespected when I tell a guy I have a man and he’s like “so”. Da eff you think you are? And what exactly do I look like? Dont answer that or I will be forced to get “urban” and embarrass us both.

          • Selah

            @Champ,

            because I have yet to learn how to tell a guy nicely to keep it pushin. So I get trapped in convos I don’t want to be in, while “willing them away” in my head

            @Champ,

            Also, some men just dont shut up. No lie, I’ve had random guys talk my ear off and not ask for my number. I think some ppl just like to make speeches. I call them “older black men”

            @Panama,
            “why for come you would just go straight there?”

            AHAHAHAHA! Who TALKS like that?! First: Stop hittin’ on third graders. Second: If it’s the FIRST thing you ask, then yeah, you’re rude and will get told. “Hi” is the standard first statement in human nature. Don’t jumpstart to a conversation statement right off the back…you gotta get her initial attention first.

            I imagine the conversation going something like this with ya’ll:

            *Panama walking down the street*
            *Lady walks by Panama*
            *Panama gawks*
            *Panana jumps in front of Lady*
            Panama: You gotta man?
            Lady: *sprays mace*

            Panama: You gotta man?

            This might be an even better plot and script than the one I wrote upthread…

            *Panama then hits lady with haymaker as he tries to get the mace out of his eyes*

            *Panama then goes to jail and sings we shall overcome as he’s being escorted away by police*

          @The Champ,
          I’m going to agree with you on this one – 100%. “You gotta man?” is not a cool pick-up line.

          In fact, your lameness will immediately cause your invisibility shield to drop into place.

          • Sula is pro-Socialism

            @SexyCool,

            I agree. Can we make conversation? Can we share a few laughs? Does it have to be about the chase ALL the time? I would rather a guy talk to me casually than ask me if I have a boyfriend. If that’s part of your first questions, even if I’m single, I am walking away.

          • http://verysmartbrothas.com The Champ

            @sula is pro-socialism

            “I agree. Can we make conversation? Can we share a few laughs? Does it have to be about the chase ALL the time? I would rather a guy talk to me casually than ask me if I have a boyfriend”

            this really depends on when and how you meet. if you just happen to strike up a convo in the elevator, thats cool. but, if a guy meets a woman at a club type place where he’s already probably spent money getting in and maybe buying a drink or two, having great convo with cool, attached women isn’t the most efficient way to spend that time

          • Roger

            @SexyCool,

            yeah that “you got a man” line is so lame to me. I’d rather say “are you single”, idk, you don’t seem as desperate and when you ask a woman if she has a man, most automatically get the impression I want to be in a relationship with them. But if I ask if their single, then hopefully I give off the vibe that I want to get to know you more and see where it goes….

      • Me fail english?

        @Omar,

        I guess every woman is different cuz I have no problem with being asked if I have a man early on. Dont get me wrong. It shouldnt literally be the FIRST question, before “How are you doing?”/”What’s your name?” but I dont wanna be the presumptuous one if a brotha is just making small talk on the train and I bust out with “I GOTS A MAYNE!!”. Cuz that would make me a douche.

        Also, you’d be surprised how many full grown men will hit you with the “Well I aint tryna be yo’ man *smirk*” after you tell them you’re taken. Ninja plz! What a coincidence, cuz I aint tryna be yo’ friend!

        Or worse yet, the dude who will actually try to convince you he makes all his friends by staring into their cleavage and asking them to dinner. Yup, GROWN men.

      Actually, she’s right. You should ask up front. It doesn’t take a genius to do it.

      Say, she’s wearing a scarf.

      Guy: “Brr, it’s a bit chilly tonight but you seem to be generating heat here all by yourself”.
      Gal: *giggles* “Well, I do my best”.
      Guy: “I’m sure you do” *smile* “Though maybe it’s that scarf, your boyfriend has good taste”.

      Gal: “Actually, I got that myself. I don’t have a boyfriend”
      Guy: *score!*
      OR
      Gal: “Yeah, he’s that one standing over there”.
      Guy: *that explains the burning sensation on the back of my neck*
      OR
      Gal: “Nah, my boyfriend found this to be too much”.
      Guy: *Ah, that explains why it seemed too easy to chat with her*

    We are cruel because ya’ll are mean. Flipping the script:
    1) Why do you take a woman out four times then kiss her on the forehead and tell her she’s a pal. You could’ve done that day one so she knew she was in the friend zone.

    2) Why do you answer a question with a question and think we don’t notice? “So where were you last night?” Men, “Oh did you try and call me?” FAIL!

    3) Why do you wait until we have given up on you and are into someone else to show us you are interested. Now I gotta man and you can’t live without me? Or do you just want what you can’t have? Hmm?

    4) Why are you smiling at me, making conversation, dancing and buying drinks when you KNOW you have a Jazmine Sullivan type girlfriend/wife who carries a Glock in her purse?

    yessir, this is why we wait until the fourth quarter of the game to tell you “we need to talk”, this is why we sometimes eat a steak before you come home and give you a hamburger, and this is why we changed the ringtone on your phone to play “Say My Name” every time we call and then we call you twenty times while you are out with your boys. We gotta fight fire with fire. Ha!

      “We are cruel because ya’ll are mean. ”
      DING DING DING DING DING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      “1) Why do you take a woman out four times then kiss her on the forehead and tell her she’s a pal. You could’ve done that day one so she knew she was in the friend zone.”

      Wait. Are you me? Because this exact thing happened to me! This guy that I went to school with made a fool of himself trying to ask me out in front of a group of our classmates/friends. Said he had a crush on me/the whole nine. We go on a few wooooonderful dates and he makes no moves–I figure he’s a gentleman. Until after date 4, when he kisses me on the forehead…….um…..wait. what? HUH!? ouch *sad face* lol
      __________________________________________

      3) Why do you wait until we have given up on you and are into someone else to show us you are interested. Now I gotta man and you can’t live without me? Or do you just want what you can’t have? Hmm?

      “Hmm,” indeed! Men are selfish.

      And thanks for the “Say My Name” ringtone tip. I’m going to change my “just a friend” boy’s to “I’m Bossy!” tonight.

            Men’s persistence is directly related to the amount of attention you retract (there’s an algorithm for this, I believe).
            -If you always used to answer his calls after one ring and now he goes to voicemail, he will increase his calls by 3.
            -If you used to invite him over for dinners, or otherwise suggest meet-ups and suddenly stop contact, he will increase his calls by 5.
            -If you gave him the drawers and then subsequently called to keep in touch but were met with half-hearted “uh huh’s”, when you don’t call him for a month or more he will call, write, show up at your doorstep, apply for a job at your workplace and staple his photo onto every Essence that appears in your mailbox.

    • http://ravingblacklunatic.blogspot.com Big Man

      @OneChele,

      That ain’t so bad.

      What about when women use feeler questions to manipulate you into doing stuff they want you to do. Example:

      Woman: “What are you doing later?”
      Man: “Nothing, chilling, watching the game.”
      Woman: “It’s not the playoffs, right?”
      Man: “Nah, it’s way to early for that.”
      Woman “Don’t the games only get really good in the playoffs?”
      Man: “Yeah, pretty much.”
      Woman: “Cool…Um, I need somebody to help move out of my apartment tonight, can you help?”

      That right there is wrong. ‘Cause if we try to cut to the chase and find out what you want, since we know you’re not really interested in basketball or our plans, y’all get all huffy and what not.

      This is the worst female trait in the world.

        @chaoticdiva, i realize that on this here site we apparently get all of the (allegedly) “most sane” women in the world (somehow) who somehow never fall into the stereotypes we claim of women, but let’s not BS ourselves here either. most women do not just have these guys who REFUSE to take no for an answer (unless you’re in the club and that only lasts for say, 4 to 5 hours). when you all have men that just won’t go away its probably b/c you offer some glimmer of hope somewhere knowing full damn well that we’re looking for a glimmer of hope. you get mad when we refer to you all as just a “friend” but have no desire on having any conversation about feelings. women like having “friend zone” dudes b/c it allows them the companionship they want while they don’t have the boyfriend they want.

          I’ma give you this one. But I will say that those male friendships are those that I find safer to invest in. That said, I give and do as much to/for them as they do me….why? Because guess what? I actually consider them friends. I believe there are plenty of great black men out there but all of them are not meant for me. So as sordid as it may sound, they serve as pleasant reminders that there is a black man out there for me and I spoil them and remind them that they shouldnt settle for a woman, of ANY ethnicity that isn’t going to treat them at least as good as I do, if not better, cuz they can do bad all by themselves.

          @Panama Jackson,

          I have coined the phrase “mind whore.”

          This is what those dudes are to chicks. They provide all the mental stimulation of a boyfriend, which allows chicks to ignore the fact that the ninja actually laying pipe can’t remember their last name half the time.
          Just like men have slores, women have mind whores. Unlike us, they can’t be honest with themselves about what’s going on, and like to pretend that we’re the ones who fooled ourselves. Of course, we men do say the same thing about our crazy jumpoffs.

          It all works out.

            That’s genius. Good look Big Man. I have seen this process, and naming it has eluded me, however, your definition of mind whore will suffice.

      @Caramel Eclair,

      This is all gospel truth. Some men refuse to acknowledge rejection. I had a guy “date” me for like 2 years when I was younger, without so much as inviting him over to watch the grammy’s. Sheeit, I was in college wit no dough and he just kept taking me to free, good asz dinners. What did you expect me to do?!?! :(

      @overit,
      I call BS on this one too. You know how you’ll be standing next to a guy and a woman comes up and makes friendly conversation, and next thing you know, it’s all about “she wants me. See how she was flirting?”… Ermmm… no she wasn’t!!! She was talkingto you. Like a real chick. And, then of course you get hit with ye olde “Oh you didn’t pick it up as it was a bit subtle. But we men know when we’re being hit on”.

      Please! Show me a woman who can’t pick up on the 25 hues and 567 permutations of flirting, and I’ll show you a man who just had a secks change operation….

      • http://verysmartbrothas.com Panama Jackson

        @wanjiru, i call BS on your BS. if a chick rolls up on a dude, she’s flirting. y’all got too much pride to just roll up on a dude all willynilly and not flirt as to ensure he won’t play you.

        women don’t take rejection well.

        now, my sister is the type to roll up on a dude and just start talking. but she’ll flirt with a tree.

        oh yeah, you know how we know most of y’all are flirting. you invade the F*CK out of our personal space..

      @overit,

      I know some women who really get off on telling their significant others about the random dudes that hit on them throughout the course of a given day. I never understood this concept. It’s funny to me cause trust that they always tell us about the ones that tried to holla that they didn’t like. They don’t say shyt about the ones who they actually DO like.

        @Monk,

        Um, that’s because they want you to KNOW that there are men that want them. Do not want YOU to get too comfortable or take them for granted. And women never tell you about the ones they DO like…why? So you can get pissed that they didn’t mind? Because you know you would be, lol.

      I agree. I’ve been accused of flirting with men, women, children, old ninjas, cats, all types of isht. No negro. Its called making eye contact and smiling. Ya kno? Like how regular humans communicate!

            No.

            I was not flirting with that Girl Scout. And I didnt plan on making my bf jealous buying those cookies. I really just smile, make eye contact and (try to) remember the names of everyone I speak to. It’s not my fault she thinks I’m sexy.

      • Selah

        @Me fail english?,

        the eye contact and the smiling messes me up every time. Just cuz I acknowledge your presence doesn’t mean I want to get to know that presence. Thanks.

            @The Champ,

            Stop acting brand new. Smiling at folks doesn’t equal flirting. If that were the case, the baby in the stroller thinks I want him to put a ring on it just because I acknowledged him. Smiling is acknowledgement. Smiling with bedroom eyes is something else. Ya’ll must decipher the two. Too bad.

          • Me fail english?

            @Selah,

            Exactly! And then when we grimace we’re some “angry black women”. Smile, and we’re being frisky.

        @Me fail english?,

        Word. This whole flirting business can get out of hand I promise. It’s almost like people expect you to mean-mug everyday. Can’t help it if I like to smile. Geesh!

      • Humble_One aka $5 Footlong

        @Me fail english?,

        I’m still confused by this. I always assume a woman smiling is happy or that is just her demeanor. Then I get knocked for not recognizing a smile and a SMILE from a woman I don’t know.

        • Me fail english?

          @Humble_One aka $5 Footlong,

          Yeah, I dunno the secret formula for when a smile is just a smile as opposed to an invitation to get my #. Im not even sure about the subtle differences in the signals I give off.

          I just happen to be a woman who talks too much and smiles a lot.

    I might catch some flack for saying this but after a certain … Say around 23-25ish and you still find yourself being put into the friend zone you deserve it! I think by the time every male has reached that age range, you should have been schooled to the game … Or at least part of it

    • http://verysmartbrothas.com Panama Jackson

      @Eff yo couch, i think that works in theory. but you know, you can’t always be sure when you’re being put in the friend zone. hell, i’ve put chicks in the friend zone and not even realized it until i asked them to come clean my kitchen…

      …and they did it and i was like, you’re such a good friend.

      How so? I’m well versed in the game, starting pg in fact, and it still happens to me. (Though a lot less than when I was 20 granted) Unless your name is Pimpin Ken, It Can Happen To You (PSA voice)

      • Me fail english?

        @Tone Capone,

        I think what’s complex about the friend zone is sometimes it takes a while for a dude to get friend zoned. I know dudes like to say “women know in the first 5 mins if they’re humping or not”. But that ish just aint true. At least not for me.

        If it takes me til the 3rd date to figure out you’re a ho-bag, a whiner, or just fakin jacks (takin em back!) in general a potential romance can get banished to the FZ indefinitely.

        @Tone Capone,

        Well in all honesty because you should know from early on whether or not you gonna be given a chance to get game action. Maybe not the first date or whatever, but seriously a month later you still ain’t so much as kissed her and she ask you to go grocery shopping with her because “its more fun with someone”, you in the friendzone buddy. Shouldn’t be happening to an experienced dude.

      you know, i actually agree. all of my friend zone experience happened in college. once i graduated though, if i was feeling a chick and she wasn’t interested, then i just stopped dealing with her.

      basically, you can still get “friend-zoned”, but you shouldn’t stay there anymore.

        Me: Hello?
        Her: It’s hot. I think my air is broke.
        Me: You should call someone in the morning.
        Her: I was actually hoping you could come over.
