“She Was Crazy”

It seems every man has dated a crazy woman. Or at least every man I’ve ever dated or considered dating has:

“Sorry about not calling. I started dating a girl but it didn’t work out. She was crazy. Wanna grab a beer?”

“I dated my ex for three years. She was bat shit crazy.”

Who are these crazy women? Or is it just one crazy woman making the rounds? I think not.

Women are rarely crazy. How many female serial killers do you know? How many female peeping Tom-ettes have you heard in the news? See? We’re pretty peaceful by nature. Now I’m sure there are crazy women out there. And maybe you don’t have to be admitted to the psychward to be considered, “crazy.”  I’m not saying we’re a perfect gender. But men’s idea of crazy is usually our idea of getting the balls to tell it like it is.

“Good for you!” we cheer when our girlfriend tells us she finally told her beau off for not calling when he said he was going to.

“Brava!” we yell, when she says she told him to go fuck himself after he told her she could stand to lose some weight.

The only crazy thing about women is how long we go before saying what’s really on our minds. Because we were worried about the reaction we were going to get. Because we didn’t want to cause a scene. Because we were worried about his feelings. Because he’ll change. That’s crazy. Maybe even bat shit.

So boys, was she really crazy? Or did she give up the crazy around the time you two broke it off? Shhhh shhh, honey. That was rhetorical.

  1. ha! great post, but i do know some crazy women: manipulative (use sex as a manipulation tool to get what they want), whiny (propose OR ELSE), demanding (uh, you only bought me one thing for christmas??), jealous (you’re going out with the guys AGAIN?) blahblahblah, girls can be crazy and guys can be insensitive, its the nature of the game….

  2. I am 100% sure that I am one of the “crazy” women, and I will be the first to admit it! But this can’t go without adding that it is men who have driven me there over and over and over!!

    • Lol! It’s funny. At the end of relationships, the women are thought of as “crazy” and men are the “assholes”. And then it’s the whole which came first, the chicken or the egg conundrum. Lol.

  3. You should watch How I Met Your Mother – check it on Netflix and watch the episode called Crazy Eyes. It’s very apt to this post – and also (fun fact!) where we got the idea to name our dog Swarley! 🙂

  4. I think that as soon as a women doesn’t want to do what they want her to do or that they say someing they don’t want to hear, she’s labeled as ‘crazy’

    Every time I hear that from a guy, I take it with a grain of salt.

    I remember dating a guy who called his ex crazy. We shortly started dating after. This guys is also also the same ex that disconnects his phone in the middle of our relationship. So i now figure he did the something to his ex and labeled her as crazy, but she wanted to do if find out what happen.
