Today, I realized that in my relationship with my significant other, the roles are switched. We went out for a nice dinner, I paid, and when we got home he "had a headache" and asked for an aspirin so he could go to sleep. FML

Why do people keep saying " significant other"?! What does it mean cant they say wife boyfriend girlfriend or husband? Or partner..

Is he pmsing as well? Drop the bitch and find a man. Lol I kid. If he's always treating you to things i dont see a problem in treating him to something for once.

I agree that "significant other" is weird in this context, as it is a gender-blind term, which is anti-sexist, and then the rest of the post relies on sexism to make any sense.

83 I believe the correct term is MANSTRATING.

Well then 47 it's not "exactly" the same is it?

I don't get what the big deal is. He didn't feel well so he took some medicine and got some rest. Poor you for not being able to **** him even when he's not up for it? Shame on him for not feeling well and indulging your wants despite his condition? I fail to see how your life is ******, when he's the one who has to put up with an entitled asshole of a girlfriend who thinks she's the victim when he's the one hurting. Invest in a *****, and lose the ugly attitude.

Grabbing a notepad and writing down lessons from the master...

Proven fact: Sex relieves headaches by releasing endorphins or some shit like that. That "headache" line is bullshit....

Yeah except if you have a headache, you generally don't want to be participating in rough activities that may jerk you around and have the potential to aggravate the already painful situation you're in; at least I'd opt to lie down and rest. Sex when you've got a throbbing headache doesn't seem very appealing, plus it can be a difficult task to turn someone on when they're in constant pain. It may help in theory, but when you're feeling like shit it's the last thing on your mind.

Nice to meet you, GeologistBastard. Have you met DocBastard yet, by chance?

Was I the only I've who thought this wad going to be a lesbian FML because OP said "significant other"?

No. we just think you deserve to be treated equally.

Amen to that 37, chicks always complain to be treated the same so now you know how it feels when you do it to us, you deserve it op.

Just have him make you a sammich and it'll all be good :)

I personally do not take advantage of guys like that, that comment was for effect. But really if yu think we deserve to be treated the same way, then why should we treat you any different?

^ .. HELP! I think she's trying to make a point, but i'm not quite sure what it is.

When unsure wether men or women are treated equally or not, find a tree, make a hammock and drink piña coladas under the sun instead of arguing.

Welcome to the 21st century where people are people and there are no "roles".

104- You're comments never make sense :/

Oh 117.. Who messed up the nerves in between your brain and your fingers..?

Ah, the ol' gender reversal. Most often occurring in relationships with womanly men.

Flockz come with me I know a good spot to do that. But before, we have to dip the tampons in orange juice, my strongest toxin!

If a guy has a headache then he has one. It is not an excuse not to have sex.

Even if it is an excuse not to have sex, he's allowed to not want to have sex sometimes. A lot of women think that if a man doesn't want to have sex with them all the time that it has something to do with them when it really doesn't. Maybe he said he had a headache to prevent an argument about why he doesn't want sex.

Guys, guys, guys. You need to be much more supportive when a woman doesn't want sex because of a headache. Imagine what that pain must be like! If my wife complains of a headache I'm very concerned and attentive. I go and get one or two Asprin straight away. Then I crush them to powder, sprinkle them on my dick and then ask her if she'd like to swallow them or would prefer them as a suppository. Her headache usually goes away almost immediately.

Headaches aren't even that bad

108 - obviously you've never had a migraine so, in the politest of ways that I can muster as a person who has suffered from countless red-hot-knife-being-stabbed-into-your-brain migraines, Shut The GODAMN **** Up You Oblivious ********!!

maybe you don't realize, but maybe the guy doesn't want to have sex, he has a headache and wants to sleep.. It is possible! This whole thing does not have to be about sex!

That means you've never had a bad one. which is awesome for you, but means you might want to work on your compassion. other people can experience things differently I occasionallly get migraines that are so bad I throw up. so now you know!

tell him to get out of bed and make you a sandwich!!

Madam, that's not how it works.

You make me a sandwich! And while I'm eating it, you can suck my dick!

70, yep, 'cause you can speak for every woman who may or may not be comfortable enough with their sexuality to have a "treasure chest" of phallic goodies.
