Default The Girl Friend, and suppliments

*RANT WARNING*

Ok, this is really pissing me off. I have been doing my thing in the gym for 8+ years, and the suppliment thing for prob 6 or so. I do extensive research, and carefully examine everything I put into my body. I have been through the gammit, and I've found what works for me. In that time i've come across amazing amounts of information pertaining to females, and suppliments gear'd toward them. However, no matter how much research i do, the girlfriend simply will not listen.

Not on diet, not on suppliments, and sure as hell not on working out. It kills me to listen to her complain about this and that, when it could easily be fixed with a little simple research. Just to have her throw something like this at me "well my doctor cant figure it out, i dont see why you would" or "I wont put things in my body that arent FDA aproved". Is it me, or this a complete slap in the face?

I just dont get it, to me if I have a problem, and something out there can make it better, I atleast give it a try. Is this simple closed mindedness, or is it an inability to achieve rational/logical thought?

And dont even get me started on steroids, here is a classic quote for ya

"If you ever do a cycle, I swear to god we are done, no questions asked, just done ... i've seen what they do to people, and I wont be a part of that"

Sometimes I just want to pull my hair out ... of my chest.

*Rant over ... for now*

I think this is most peoples reponse as far as anything beyond Whey protein. As far as the girlfriend who wont talk any supplements, convince her to take just 1 thing, and eventually she will relieze how benificial they are, and be hooked lol

Many times women, when they're complaining about something simply don't wan't you to help them they just wan't you to sympathise and comfort them. Not to sound like Doctor Phil but the emotional considerations come first and the practical considerations come second.

Obviously every woman is different but I have found that 1. You can offer your help and maybe they will listen to you and take what you have to offer or 2. you can wait for them to ask for help and in the meanwhile see above. But until they say: Help Me don't even bother: you're probably wasting your time!

If you act sanctimonious I will just list out your logical fallacies until you get pissed off and spew blasphemous remarks.

Good points from both of you. Lately I've been saying "If you dont want to fix it, then dont bitch" alot. She doesnt like that so much.

Oh yeah. I know exactly what you mean. Logic just sometimes doesn't apply! Sometimes when my wife is acting like that I just sympathize or empathize, whatever and then instead of trying to do what I THINK needs to be done, I simply say "What can I do to make it better for you". It's like a magic pill. Most of the time I don't have to do anything, she just wants to hear me say it.

Oh man. I can't believe I'm saying all this. When did I get so well trained?

yeah, accept birth control really takes its toll on the female libido ... one of the reasons I'm trying to get her to get into a healthier lifestyle.

That is sooo true. I get that all the time with my girl. She one time told me, "All I want you to do is understand me and be there."
Drives me nuts sometimes.

Boy, where to begin. You need to really talk this out with her. Women have many needs and you need to recognize them if you are to survive in a relationship. You also need to express how you feel about your training and supplementation without belittling her. More along the line of " really value your imput and concern, it shows you love me but this is also very important me" And then expain to her your views. Even though she may disagree on some of the points never say she is wrong. Just tell her I understand where you are coming from, answer her concerns and continue. By doing this you show her respect for her opinion and feelings and have a greater chance of making your point which inturn she should also understand your opinions and feelings on the matter. Do not and I repeat do not let an argument ensue or you are doomed.

ah X, if i could turn back time i would follow that word for word. But being that I'm stubborn, and she is jewish, the fights just happen no matter what I do.

and i'm sorry but I dont care who you are ... If your wrong, I will tell you that your wrong. I call a spade a spade.
