I don't understand something. I'm not putting men down or anything like that. I'm not saying this happens to other women either. But in my experience with most men is that they hate me when I'm gentle and kind to them. Even to the point of seeking physical harm against me? I just don't get it? I thought men loved and respective women who loved and respect them and treat them well. Even being on his side. I'm not demonizing men or anything. I don't want this to be a stupid annoying battle of the sexes thing either. I just want to know why men are like this?

Has this ever happened to other women before?

I'm seriously confused and concerned about this.

It could be the kind of men you are talking to. In my experience, men respond very well to kindness and being gentle. There are some people who perceive kindness as weak and will use it against us.

There’s good and bad on both sexes. I had a traumatic childhood due to a violent mother then a violent husband and thought i would be alone forever then i met a wonderful man. There are good people out there its just a case of finding them

I gotta start hanging out with different men then. And women.

Yes my mom was very abusive too. She hated her daughters but loved her sons in some sick twisted Freudian way. :yuck: :yuck:
