Men are from MARS

Aaron and I bought a new TV for our apartment on Monday night. Tuesday morning we got our cable installed, and by Tuesday night we were already hooked to the tube. We made cookies and watched one of my favorite shows--So You Think You Can Dance. Earlier in the night Aaron said he felt like one of my girlfriends (making cookies and watching a dance show). But by the end of the night (near the end of the 2-hour episode), we had this brief conversation....

Whitney: Aaron!!!! What are we doing??? I feel like all we've done is watch TV tonight! We haven't bonded at all!!!!
Aaron: What are you talking about?? This IS bonding! ........You girls are crazy.

The "girls" he is referring to are those of us who don't think watching TV is considered bonding. You know....the girls who would rather sit and TALK. Or is that just me??? I admit I was being a little dramatic, since it was my idea in the first place to watch TV. :) Either way, we really enjoyed our time together watching our new TV (even though I'm not convinced yet that we were "bonding") and the whole ordeal confirmed to me once again......
boys and girls are so different.


  1. So so very true. Last night actually, Pierce and I were sitting at home, "being together" and he looks over and said, you haven't come and sat next to me all night, because I was doing homework and such at the computer. So, maybe I'm the weird one in our relationship and yes, Pierce is a romantic. :)

  2. Jen=Aaron
    Mike= Whitney

    Watching tv is sooo bonding ;)

  3. Amen. Philip could watch TV with me all night, but after a few hours of that I don't feel like I've been with him at all!

  4. YES. Adam thinks that just because we're doing something together, that means it's "quality" time. This includes watching TV, watching movies, or any other activity that involves zero communication. That's not bonding! Haha, MEN.

  5. Matt is even worse. He thinks sitting next to each other on the couch while he send emails on his laptop/blackberry is bonding;)

    Just kidding, he's not that bad. I do know what you mean, though...although snuggling with a good show on can be pretty good.
