Wtf? Seriously, don't all people need to retreat when they feel stressed? Since when is it only men? And what does that have to do with men pulling away? If I counted every time that Craig headed out to the "man-cave" as they called it, 'pulling away' we should've been divorced about 20 odd years ago. According to this article if your man is stressed it is your job to tiptoe around the bastard and let him hide in his 'sook cave' until he's ready to come out otherwise you'll be seen as inconsiderate and needy! Which brings me to the second point that they made, men pull away because you are too needy.
That fucking chestnut - too needy! Men apparently long to feel wanted and desired, but not needed. What the sweet fuck does that even mean? I figure it means that if you come to a man in your lingerie wanting to ravish his loins he'll probably be into it, but if you start begging him, forget it sister - that shit is too needy! Is that what they mean? Seriously, if you can't rely on your man to be there when you need something, he's a fucking loser and needs to be kicked to the curb - hard! Wanted? Desired? Give it a bone, wanted and desired doesn't pay the rent unless you're a stripper and it is certainly not an excuse to push aside someone's needs. No man on the planet has ever been desired or wanted for not meeting a woman's needs on some level, so that's just a huge load of malarky!
Any article that tries to insinuate that it is all your fault that your man is pulling away is total shit. The real reason that a man pulls away is simple and can be summed up in six easy words- he's just not that into you. That's it - there is no other reason. It's not because he is stressed or because you're needy or because he's having doubts- he's just not feeling you girlfriend, and that's that! HE IS NOT IN LOVE WITH YOU! No ridiculous article is going to change the fact that your relationship is in turmoil and your man is pulling away. Get some real couselling if you need it, but never listen to trashy relationship 'fixer' articles online - what a steaming pile of horse shit that crap is.
I just cannot believe how much of that shit is still around though. I thought that the 'women's obligation and oppression' literature went out with the 1960's - but how very wrong I am. If articles like this are anything to go by, there is clearly still plenty of bullshit man boosting/ women oppressing tripe to read if you're stupid enough to click on it. Saddest part of all is that it was actually written by a woman, proving that some of us still have such a long way to go.

Running Time: 96 mins
A unique crime drama that has it's quirk levels turned up to high volume; I Don't Feel at Home in This World Anymore both surprised and impressed me with it's fresh script and interesting characters. Written and directed by Macon Blair (better known for his mesmerising role in the gritty thriller Blue Ruin), the movie premiered at the Sundance Film Festival where it won the Grand Jury Prize, and was later released by Netflix.
Ruth, a slightly awkward nursing assistant, is horrified to find that her home has been broken into. Her medication, laptop and grandmother's silverware have been taken and the authorities don't seem to be very concerned. When an opportunity arises for some vigilante justice, Ruth enlists the help of a rather odd neighbour to help her recover her stolen goods.
I just adore Melanie Lynskey, she's a terrific actress and an untapped resource as far as I am concerned. She is just brilliant here as the downtrodden character Ruth; perfectly ditzy and ballsy at the same time. Elijah Wood is also fabulous as Tony, adding a lot of entertainment value to the overall feel of the film. I love that Wood is so willing to take on less conventional roles; I haven't found him this enjoyable since Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency.
FINAL SAY: It's not your lawn tiger!
