A couple of weeks ago, Steve from Colorado brought up an interesting point of contention in his relationship. Why do I always have to do the dishes? Makes sense right, after all, you both dirty the dishes, you both see the mess in the kitchen, and the buildup of gunk and odors that rapidly accumulates in the area where you prepare your meals is hardly unnoticeable. So why does it feel like only one person steps up to do the dishes all the time?
First off, let’s call it what it is, it’s not about dishes. Dirty dishes becomes the encompassing focus but look at that sink of chaos and every item in it is more than just a fork, a plate or a spoon. See that dirty plate- that’s all the times you do the work during sex and she lays there and then complains to her friends later that she isn’t satisfied. Oh and that coffee cup with the solidified chunks of creamer and caffeine residue – that’s really last Sunday when she interrupted the football game for the 100th time to ask which shade of pink you preferred on her nails. Really look at that overflowing mess and recognize it for what it is- feelings of resentment because things are one sided or just not fair in the relationship.
The Guys of the Roundtable podcast is in the process of an overhaul to include more than just us talking.
We are going to add written elements, among other things. You can expect short audio clips, youtube videos, perhaps even some video game streams.
We will explain this and MUCH more on Friday (10/27) at 10 p.m. EST as we dive into these changes and take YOUR calls.
Tune in here at 10 p.m. EST on Friday.
