If you’re new to this blog you will come to find that softball is a BIG part of our lives. Jason has played with the same guys going on 4 years now. As of the end of April, it will have taken over our lives completely pretty much! They also all bowl together on Mondays, as a way to stay in touch over the winter. Now they have always treated me as “one of the guys.” Maybe most girls don’t like that but I’m not most girls. That crude sick behavior…I think it’s funny. I don’t join in and talk like them but I sure LMAO at them and in no way am I insulted by anything these guys say! Shocked and stunned sometimes but never insulted.
So last night we were all sitting around the table joking and laughing at, well I’m not sure I can really go into that but let’s just say most women would have been disgusted! I find great humor in it and play along. They have never filtered anything in front me. I know this because I have asked Jason if they are worse when I’m not around (if that were even possible) no they are just as crude and disgusting!!
As we are all sitting there I can’t help but notice I am the only women in the place. No joke, there were a few in the bar area but I was the only one over with the men during bowling. It got me thinking, “Why am I always the only woman here?” “Do most men not want their wives to come along?” “Do most women not find it fun to come or spend time with these guys?” So I asked the guys those very questions. The answers were all very funny but none of them really answered the questions. I asked them too, “in all honesty would you rather me not come?” They all looked at me like I was crazy!
Seeing as we have a lot of women that come to this blog and now a few men, I was wanting your opinion. For the women…you walk into a sports complex full of men and one women, what do you think? Same for the men, what would you think? As a women, do you enjoy the company of men or do you prefer to be around women. I know it’s different company and sometimes I do prefer to be with my girlfriends but my guy friends top the cake. They make me laugh and don’t judge me or expect me to be proper. They all genuinely care about me and I know would be there for me in a heart beat no questions asked. Not too sure I could say that about all my girlfriends.
I really don’t mind being “one of the guys” in fact I prefer that. They all know that when I walk into “their domain” it’s all the same, no filter, no hurt feelings, no telling them they can’t talk like that about women and sex in general. I know at the end of the day they all respect women and surly love their girlfriends or wives, if they have one. It’s all in fun and it’s their time to just be men! I know some women can be quite judgmental and see me with all these men and think the worst. That’s kinda what I’m wondering, not that I care what anyone thinks about me. But I am curious!!! Jason comes into play here to because he’s not like most men, he really does like me to come along. He’s my best friend and has a raunchy sense of humor too…maybe that’s where I got it!!! 🙂
