Do women require a certain amount of drama in their lives?

So a bunch of us guys were sitting around channel flipping. No women around. One of the cellphones starts ringing and it's his SO. Needless to say, it was a relatively long conversation.....eh.....dialogue (since she did all the talking). So towards the end of the conversation, he just says:

....."uh huh"......"ah"....."ok"......."buh bye".

We all look at him and were like WTF, since it lasted like 30 minutes and he really didn't say anything. Apparently, she was upset at the neighbors dog peeing on the fence between the two houses amongst other things......which led to our discussion.

Do women require a certain amount of drama? Most guys I know avoid drama like the plague. Are women the exact opposite? And it so, why (if this is even answerable)?

Yes.

Yes they do.

They'll likely deny it up and down, and get fighting mad over you saying such a thing and will for sure start an argument over it.

That, of course, is simply just another example of their desiring of drama.

Women need men to listen to them explain what's happening to them. Men want to solve women's problems that they are explaining to them. These two combinations don't mix well.

Indeed. My fiancee revealed this trade secret to me once after we got into an argument resulting from each of us doing the above. She told me afterwards, "Sometimes I just need you to listen to my problems, not give me answers on how to solve them."

It's illogical, but that's pretty much the definition of a woman.

Its not women, it is people; some people just need drama in their lives.

John Gray wrote an entire series of "Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus" books based on this.

The verbalizing of their problems is part of their problem-solving techinque, too.

I would say a large percentage do, but certainly not all do. Some of the need for drama also depends on age and experience.

I can not stand women that have a constant need for drama or arguments in their life.

No. We absolutely, positively do NOT. Do you hear me? We do NOT. So don't think you can get away with running that number about overemotional, drama queen broads. IS THAT CLEAR???????

Some women require drama. But I've also met a bunch of guys who demand drama in their lives. I don't like them, either.

Of course they do! I say put on the Lifetime channel and park their butts in front of it if they want drama.

I've known too many guys (gay or straight) who are like this to say it's just women... I'd ask you to remember that the phrase Drama Queen was initially coined by & for gay men.

Some people just love drama and conflict. They'd always be the first to deny it, as you say. But they create it, out of nothing--it's the background noise they *expect* for their lives.

My roommate has dozens of friends, extremely popular, but is *always* feuding with one or two of them. He pretty much *needs* to have someone he's pissed off at--an enemy, if you will--in order to maintain his role as queen bee in his little circle.

For myself, I can't stand it. I'm one of those guys who doesn't talk much, and isn't wild about listening to other people going on and on, either. Example: In five years, I have never used more than *30* of my cell phone minutes per month. I wish they made cell phone plans small enough for us only-talk-for-a-reason types.

That's because I don't have your number, sweet cheeks.

I just had an epiphany. Now I know why women love guys that are gay, and assh*les. D-R-A-M-A. Wow......everything in the world makes sense now.

Yes, they do. Men too. But I'd say, not scientific researched of course, that the percentage in women is a lot higher than in men (or at least straight men).
