: Forgive me GD, but did I not read sometime ago in a post of yours all the books you have read on understanding the female mind or am I incorrect?
If I am then what is the point of your thread may I ask with all due respect?
I don't recall a post about reading and understanding the "female" mind, perhaps, the human mind in general, but again, psychology is not my forte and would like to have the opinions of females as to whether there is normalcy in this type of behavior. FT, no offence to you, but this is a MB and one should be able to share thoughts and debates on different subjects relative to the show, so why the questioning? Is it possible that anything negative about Steffy warrants questioning? I sincerely hope not!
The question itself is insulting. What exactly are you implying ? Are all men weak and pathetic like Liam? Is that normal behavior in men? Essentially it is an passive aggressive jab at women. Aren't you married? If so, then you should already know the answer.
Now about the character. I believe people do crazy things when they are in love. There is nothing desperate about having hope and faith in someone you love. She is trying to see this through to the end. Just as Hope, when she was stealing kisses from Liam, lost her virginity to liam, while he was sill married to Steffy.
Forgive the hysterics, but I had to laugh at your post boatchick since being a male, this has nothing to do with gender, but since you brought it up, I could write a book on the the number of insults thrown at Liam by the majority of females on the MB! Yes, he is wrong, but for you to throw it back at me saying that this question in insulting is ludicrous with all due respect to you.
@Aces, thank you for responding without being offended. The way to go! Additionally, you are so right, neither male nor female gender understands each other; hence, the questioning is educational, warranted and debatable. Good post!
Thank you to all the posts who responded without taking this thread as an offence and your insight is amazing! Watchdog, Fata, jcyl, Inga, lunch, mollyt, among others...good posts! Your reasoning makes sense in many ways.
1) your question from your original quote "Forgive me for asking, but is this normal for a woman to act so desperate?
2) your second response "I don't recall a post about reading and understanding the "female" mind, perhaps, the human mind in general, but again, psychology is not my forte and would like to have the opinions of females as to whether there is normalcy in this type of behavior?"
Your asking if this is "normal behavior" because you psychology is not your forte. Your are making a generalized statement regarding women.
Now if you had asked if this is normal behavior for steffy or the woman on the show, that would be different because you would have been referring to a select few specifically.
Also, I am aware of your gender, as I implied that since you are married, you would know the answer to your own question, I believe you are married to a woman.
So, yes , you question regarding "normal behavior" was insulting. You made reference to the female mind, hence making it gender related.
Read your own quote, because really, I find it funny how you don't realize the implications of your own quote.
