Notes from a Bisexual Ax Murderer

A woman I've been spared meeting face to face began an e-mail exchange by interrogating a male acquaintance of a friend of hers as if the man was guilty until proven innocent. This began with whether he was "bisexual" and cascaded downwards. A woman who hates men that much should try women.

Indeed, an increasing number of women could use some finesse in the way they approach men in whom they might have an interest. Especially when the person in question is not a total, absolute stranger, but someone who comes recommended or is in some way a known quantity.

Women seem to feel that their negative past experiences with men entitle them to be rude.

One woman I know asks men she might date whether they have ever declared bankruptcy. Another asked whether the Mercedes in which she was being driven had been bought new or used.

Honey, if you're that interested in my bank account, good-bye.

Sure, some women are preternaturally stupid about money in a romantic context. One story of woe included moving in with and co-signing the purchase of a house with a man she'd known only three months: yes, he was interested in her money.

Still, not all men are cads, prefer men and have the law after them. Indeed, men weed out women by observing discreetly; a little discretion in sizing up other people would go a long way. Espy subtly, without implying the man is a criminal before you've met him (even as a "joke").

Besides, in all my ax murdering I have always had to catch the victim unaware. For some reason, women don't want a date once I tell them I am an ax murderer. Women!

When I did the routine. I discovered that most of the men wanted women with supermodel looks and deep pockets. And they always seemed to want to have "instant chemistry" which I'm assuming would lead to instant gratification. Whatever happened to actually getting to know a person first before making a snap decision over a glass of wine or dinner?

I agree that many men are total cads. The "package" does have some relevance to a relationship that in some ways is quite physical. Your question applies to the e-mailing woman, as well.

Cecilieaux, If you would just replace "women" with "some women", I would not think that your comment is sexist.

Anonymous, I would not think your sniping is cowardly if you had identified yourself.
