I'm sure glad the hot chicks at Petco can rest assured that you will not be interested in them. Seems to me when you bring not be pleasing to f---ck them, that mindset is a turnoff completely to women. Maybe you should clean up your sick thoughts about having animals and equating it with human and animals having sex. That isn't even the subject matter. You need psych help seriously.


Sister is mad because she loves animals and she wants them indoors for cuddles. Understandable. However, the subject of this topic was a man's rejection of indoor animals, and I provided an explanation for why that rejection occurs. So it was straight on the subject. I'm obviously not going to talk about how and why animals fit into a home because it wouldn't help the OP understand his behavior.

I simply said that some men find it disgusting that a woman touches their penis after she touched a dog...God knows where. It is a turn-off and in those cases where the man is disgusted by such a woman cuddling a dog indoors, the woman has to choose between the man and the dog.

Simple common sense, no need to involve the human amygdala. Let it rest :)


So Your time as a Admin on a Porn Forum makes You an Expert? An Expert of What, Nut Job Wankers?


^ Most members had wives/girlfriends who were performing the fetishes for them. They would post pictures/videos of it all. Nice place.

No need to have prejudices. Nice car btw :)

I was admin on a porn forum so I know exactly what I'm talking about. It's a total turn-off.

It's going down to 3 degrees F tonight here in the Detroit area, and across the river in Windsor.

With a Real Feel temp of zero.

strawberry_jello, the Real Feel or Wind Chill factor doesn't apply if You're in a shelter, even if it's unheated.

If it's 10F with a Wind Chill factor of -10F & I put a thermometer inside a unheated shelter, it won't read -10F.

CTRLvector,
I can walk 5 miles through the woods at my age, so it's entirely possible she can hike 15 miles at her age. As for calculating distance, around here, most trails post the miles. Or, there's apps for that.

Your attitude towards her is unwarranted.



Of course you can walk 5 miles, add 10 to that and you will be crawling. There is no way YOU could walk 15 miles, and there is no way SHE can walk 15 miles. I refuse to believe that garbage.

You have no idea what 15 miles is like till you walk it, especially if you walk it with gear.

Even 8-10 miles and you both will be hurting.


That's not too much of a stretch though. I can currently do two in around 14 but I usually run a lot farther for longer instead of shorter faster. I knew a number of people running 12s on their PT test. I served with one that could do 5 minute miles for two miles, but that is all he did with his time is run.

Lets not forget the time limit on those marches, 12 miles, full gear... in UNDER 3 hours, brutal. :p



It is a stretch if the guy who says he can run spends all day drinking beer. And 2 miles in 13:50 and you’re basically hauling ass the whole time. At about 16:00 2 miles and you’re basically hard jogging the whole time.

And 2 minutes of that can really hurt you, anyone who can move 2 miles between 13-14 minutes is a fast mofuker, and I give them credit. But I don’t believe many people can do it, especially if they spend most their days on a bar stool talking about how fast they are.


^^^
Lmao. I hear you though. I doubt most 40+ adults could run a mile in 6 minutes, let alone 2 in 12. Maybe on a treadmill perhaps.

Walking (not hiking) 12-16 miles is not a stretch of the imagination either. Hiking, however, in my definition, involves some degree of ascent and is more arduous then walking, IMHO.

I'm guilty of running a 13 minute mile for 39 minutes :(

Let me re-phrase that. Jogging. Running conjures up images of Chariots of Fire.

Not me. I'm more a jog 3 / walk (not hike) 6 guy, and my butt doesn't like inclines.


Yeah running isn't easy, I have a hard time of it. Especially now that my back and knees are all jacked up from service. I can still keep a steady jog, but as far as cardio endurance running 2 miles without stopping isn't how combat is today. Which is why they are changing the PT test to something more practical. Like burst sprinting is good, that's what you need to do well at, hauling ass for 50 meters at a time or so with a bunch of gear.

I don't know, people look at the numbers on paper and think its easy, especially if they don't have parallel to gauge that on. Like strawberry thinking that 5 miles is equiv of 10 or 15... which is bullcrap, anyone who has walked distances like that knows that the longer you go the more pain you cause yourself. And 15 miles will cause the average person a great deal of pain, I promise that.

Behind-Blue-Eyes_53,
Yes, I know, inside is not the same as outside. Yet here I am inside my house, not a shed, a house that is fairly well insulated and sealed. In this weather, the furnace runs A LOT, and I still feel the need to bundle up. I'm not concerned for his dogs as much as for her dog. It was living the life of a people, not a dog, until she moves in with him.

CTRLvector ,
Wow, so much negativity.

I'M NOT AVERAGE. There's a reason I list physical activities in my profile, I like them, I do them, regularly, frequently. In a pinch, I could walk 10 to 15 miles, and I would be tired, but not in a great deal of pain.

You have no idea how much walking I do, and have done in my life. No, I don't take gear with me, ok?

Some breeds of dogs are meant to live outdoors, some indoors, some can be both indoor and outdoor dogs. It also depends on what the dog is accustoned to, both physically and psychologically.
I think the OP (or her friend) would be making a mistake banishing her dog to the outdoors just to please this man. Yeah yeah, physical 'safety'( against cold temps,etc) could be provided for but I think that making such a lifstyle change would be pretty rough on the dog psychologically speaking.
The OP needs to re-home either the dog or the relationship. I think it should be the relationship that goes away.

Been pretty cold here lately, and I notice my dog will start lifting his paws when the cold gets to be too much on our walks, I couldn't imagine leaving him outside for the sake of not having to vacuum up a bit of hair daily

Two observations, OP.

#1. Stop writing posts in the third person, "she wants this" and "he says that." It's ignorant.

#2. Your boyfriend is a douche canoe.

The end.

forumgirl519- I've owned dogs most of my life. I currently have a very spoiled one that stays inside.
This is jmo, but I don't understand people that adopt dogs and then keep them outside. Dogs are great companions, what good are they outside? I don't get it.
However, this is how he feels, he thinks they should be outside and probably feels as strongly about it as I do about then being inside.
It seems like you have come to a stale mate, keep the dog or the man, that decision is yours, me, the dog would stay.
Another note, if he is this rigid about THIS issue, can he ever compromise?
No relationship will work if one party always expects the other one to give in.
This isn't just a dog issue, it's a compatibility issue and i'm not sure the two of you are a match.
Good luck :)

What I don't get is the constant compatibility issue. The only woman this loser is compatible with is a doormat female who doesn't have a mind of her own.

I'd really hoped that by the time I got to this space (read both threads in full) that the Opie would have resolved this.

What I'm having more than a little trubble with is that both you and your dog are seen as dirty. You and your dog make HIM feel *dirty* and *gross*. . . . Yeah, sure, stay, have babies with this dude, and watch him react to pee and poop and froop. . . . If he's terrified your dog, imagine how much more he can terrify a two year old. Because, believe me, sister, two year olds are going make dogs/cats/birds seem gloriously sanitized.

This guy is OCD, Anal Retentive, and a major arsehole. And you'd consider for one second letting him be the sperm donor for your kids? You're kidding, right?

Thinking out loud here...

Some people have been taught through tradition and religion that eating pork is not good, because they treat the pig as an 'impure' animal - not considered an edible meat source - like most cultures would treat horse meat or dog meat.

Is this an extension of that belief? Are there cultures out there that consider ANY four-legged animal 'impure' enough not to stay under the same roof - like most cultures would consider a hoofed animal?

I'm just considering the possibility before getting into a lot of gratuitous name-calling for no reason.

I'm fine with pets living indoors, so long as they are still treated and respected as pets. Dressing up dogs or cats in human clothing or allocating a whole playroom for them for them the same way your would your human child kind of bothers me. As much enjoyment and personality as pets bring to a household, I still feel there should be a line between being a 'member of the family' and LITERALLY being a relative.

It could be that people are dressing up their kids in dog and cat clothes. I know quite a few animal lovers, and I never heard of anyone allocating a room as a pet playroom. Dogs are pack animals, so they hang around and play wherever their owner/caretaker is. And cats will play anywhere, and when they get older, they stop playing all together.

If you knew what pigs eat and how they live you’d know why eating pork is not good. Doesn’t require tradition or religion to know eating certain things is bad for you.

Genetics, maybe? If a male dog impregnates a female human, or a male human impregnates a female dog, what is born? Hm.

""Is this a fundamental difference between two people, that makes them incompatible?""

YES, YES, YES.
I agree with him. Dogs are for outdoors unless there is extreme weather.
Some people can't live without a dog underfoot and dog mess to clean up. ( Not "mess" but chewed items and furniture, hair, knocked over things, etc.)
Those two types should not live together. Seething resent will build up.

I will never understand equating animals to people. But then, I guess some people who thik animals are equal to people don't get me. Friendzone. I have friends like that. Nice to visit. Wouldn't want to live with them.

It is just about compatibility. What is right for you is not right for him. Find a dog lover like yourself. Let him find someone who prefers a hairless home.

For some there are strong exceptions - I have a friend who's diabetic and has a trained service dog that she literally depends on for her safety and health. I understand that bond is MUCH different than just a household pet - but at the same time, they don't literally need a seat at the dinner table -- or a napkin -- or silverware -- to eat. The 'humanization' of pets is just baffling sometimes.

All that being said, I think we'd have a lot less communications failures if we all had tails that would reflect our genuine emotions like dogs do.

Dogs are DOMESTIC animals, therefore, they MUST live inside.

NO,We the animal lover, do not believe that animals are equal to the human beings,but We believe that all animals DESERVE some kind of respect in this earth.


I guess some people who thik animals are equal to people don't get me.


what we do not "GET" , is the absence of compassion and love in the heart of certain persons.

actually they are FOOD animals in many countries, Vietnam comes to mind

they are "domestic" in the sense that CATTLE & CHICKENS are 'domestic' in N. America

also Guinea pigs (cuy) serve as the preferred high protein, low fat meal in Peru & Ecuador & parts of Colombia ;)

VVVV

it's a matter of perspective..Hindus think 'we' are crazy and inhumane & gross for eating beef

first off let me say that I like dogs and that some of my best friends are dogs, when I go to a restaurant I even eat like a wolf, even when visiting friends that have an inside dog that tend to jump on my leg and hump it, I react with compassion and ask Fido to at least buy me dinner first...

so it's not about a lack of compassion, it's just that to those that are not use to animals roaming "Born Free" in the abode, a dog in the house can seem more like the elephant in the room, you begin to notice worrisome things to you that your "significant other" might find insignificant

FOR EXAMPLE
you notice that your significant other" is always rubbing on the dog as you ponder if they will wash their hands before cooking food, because you do enjoy spaghetti and meatballs but tend to avoid spaghetti and furballs

you also notice that the dog has a habit of licking your '"significant other" on their face and lips, it's cute but later on if your significant other tries to snuggle up or kiss you it becomes sort of Gross...

also let's say that you and your "significant other" is on the couch engaging in adult activities and you flip them around and notice there is shedded dog hair on their back and butt ....it gives an entire new meaning to going "Doggy Style" and might be a turn off, which means you might only tend to engage in such activities in designated areas like a Bed when not in use has a tarp over to keep the dog hair out

so what do you say Dog lovers....can you have a little compassion and understanding for those that like dogs but might be a tad bit uncomfortable with them in the house ...it's one of those situation that one has to get use to..if possible

I have 8 cats. Blankets on couch & recliner.

I save sex for my bedroom or his apartment & do it Kitty-Kat Style (look that one up in the Kama Sutra) not doggy style.

If a man wants my pvssy, he has to put up w/ all the other pvssies in my home ;0P

I'm not a cat person by any means, but at least when you're engaging in nocturnal activities they leave you alone for the most part. Nothing more unnerving then being stark naked and ready to go when a wet nose surprises you from behind.
