Do Tell: Worrying About Men

I found an article in this month's Psychologies magazine, from the UK, in which Diane Keaton talks about her career, her infamous liaisons, and her life as an unmarried woman. I was struck by this one quote in particular: "I spent too much time worrying about men I was in love with."

It made me wonder, ladies, just how much time we spend worrying about the men in our lives? If we added up all the minutes and hours, how much time would that be? Do tell, can you relate to what Ms. Keaton said?

Too much. However, it mkes me feel good worrying. I love my guy friends and they worry just as much about me as I do about them.

I used to spend waaaaay too much time worrying and crying about a man. Now, I would say I only spend a few minutes a month about him...and things mostly like his personal health, driving safely etc.

I spent years with a man that couldn't be trusted. I wasted so much of my life. I have finally broken free of that, but it was so difficult. I have told my friends, our relationship was like a bad heroin addiction. You hate every second of it, but can't give it up. Now, I'm not into drugs, I'm just using that as an example. I still have a difficult time not thinking about him and when I meet a new person, I feel frozen and dead inside. Of course, he moved on with no problem. He only loves himself.

I think about the men in my life, or lack thereof way more than I really should. :oy:

"Bloody useless" is right. I spent years worrying about a guy who spent next to zero time worrying about me, all it gave me was anxiety, weight gain, and tears. So glad I finally gave him the boot. I learned it's far more important to worry about me because no one else is going to (at least for now). Next time I'll find a happy medium to worrying about him.

I don't spend that much time worrying about men (thanks god for that). I used when I was very very young. I'll tell you it was bloody useless!

I think that choosing the person you are potentially going to reproduce with is cause for plenty of worrying! I agree if we added up all the time we wasted we might be able to like, save the whales or something.
