I have a theory.
We always hear that there isn’t a handbook. or instruction manual. Life doesn’t come with one. Kids surely don’t come with one.
Men say that they need one to figure out women.
Here is my theory:
There is a handbook on women that men have. Unfortunately there are only a few copies, so they’re being passed around from man to man and each guy only gets it for a very brief time.
This explains why every so often a husband or boyfriend (or other mantype) will say exactly the right thing at exactly the right moment magically and as if they totally understood you and knew what you needed to hear right then.
And how the rest of the time they can totally be a clodhead.
They only get their hands on the book rarely and briefly and then…POOF! It’s gone again.
