I ran into an old friend from High school yesterday. He was with his fiance, but she walked away to allow us some time to catch up. And so we did, asking all the usual questions about what you're up to, whats new, do you still see some of the guys from school, etc. Eventually I asked about the aformentioned fiance, a rather attractive looking young lady, and was told that they've been together for a solid 3 years. Then he told me he cheats on her.
"My man," he said, pulling a smile, "If you had to go home and eat chicken everyday, you would get tired of it, you know? You gotta eat something else now and again on the side!"
"Er...yeah," I reply. "Ha ha ha."
"You know how it is boss!"
We talk a bit more, then he walks back to her, they hold hands happily, innocently, then walk off into the crowded distance. It was somewhat shocking, as the guy I left behind in school never seemed like the cheating type, but then it hit me that the vast majority of male friends I have or have had are cheaters without concern. It's something I despise, something I wish wasn't so easily accepted by men in general. I have protested against it amongst friends, but you get labelled as the weak one, that if you aren't a player, you aren't a man.
So guys, your definition of being a man is:
- To have no self control
-To betray someones trust
-To lie and manipulate
-To be a self centered bastard
If thats the criteria, then Goddammit bitches, guess I ain't a man, and I'm proud of that. Newsflash you bastards, if you aren't prepared to be faithful to someone, then um, heres a thought, DONT GET INTO A RELATIONSHIP WITH THEM. But see, these assholes want the best of both worlds, the love and security of a relationship, and also the thrills of playing the field and being single. You cannot have both and maintain your integrity.
But I forget, being a man has nothing to do with integrity, does it?
