Amazing HH, cuz in all seriousness that is it! I've been showering her with attention and gifts and being as nice as I can. But for some reason people say that can backfire cuz she can feel crowded or overwhelmed. Yet I often hear of women complaining their man doesn't pay enough attention to them or spend enough time with them or say "I love you" enough. Sigh, guess I have to discover what the proper balance is!

There is no balance.

Treat them like crap and they will love you forever.

Just make sure you don't let ANYONE ELSE treat her like crap.

That is the secret.

Sad, but fairly true. I have know idea why - except we like a challenge, but all my husband does is sleep and eat... I do love him dearly - but it also gives me something to complain about. :) Actually, I didn't even get anything for Christmas :(

My ex GF when I was in Germany explained it rather nicely I thought.

She told me that the reason she liked me was because I was a challenge.

She said if I did everything she said, and let her get away with things it was boring.

It was a real eye opener.

I don't actually condone abuse (physical, or mental) but Groucho Marx put it best:

"I wouldn't join any club that would have me as a member."

Pretty appropriate advice coming in a thread called "Bobby Knight" heh! The way he treats everyone I'm sure he is definitely a challenge for his wife - AND I'm sure he'd never let ANYONE ELSE treat his wife like crap!

There's an insight too. If my woman complains I shouldn't necessarily worry take that as a bad sign, eh. It's like I always try to make sure her feedback is positive. But my ex fiance did actually say once, "We females like to go fishing or camping with our guys cuz then we can complain." :lol:

:lol:

But how about before marriage? Especially in the very early stages of dating? Does it help to do lots of things for her and give her cards, flowers, and things? And to make it clear to her you're crazy about her?
How else is she gonna know you really love her and are interested in her? (OHHH by treating her like crap HEH!).
But getting back to the challenge thing. Maybe that's where the "absence makes the heart grow fonder" comes in too. One time for instance, I was sweet on a female co-worker and kept visiting her as much as I could, including stopping by to see her to say goodbye before I went home. But then she started to get more distant and unenthusiastic. So I didn't stop to say bye for a few days. Then she said, "How come you don't come see me before you go home anymore?" I said, "Oh sorry, I didn't know if you wanted me too." She said, "Of course I want you too!" ;)

2 other important rules I've been told:

(1) Make them laugh. Women like to laugh.

(They especially seem delighted when you make them laugh by complimenting them in a humorous way. Then you are making them laugh and simulateously communicating to them that they are attractive).

(2) If they ever ask, "I look fat, don't I?" you NEVER NEVER say , "Yes"!

I remember a line from a movie when I was younger.

I think it might have been "Blind Date" or something.

An older brother gave some advice to his younger brother, Ethan Hawke.

He said "Treat 'em good, treat 'em bad, it doesn't make a difference... just pay attention to them."

Kind of appropriate, I would say.

Right, it seems to me that is something very important to them. But can it also be a pitfall to pay too much attention to them? Seems like the love game is so hard because there's so many ways a guy can go wrong.

Friday night I went out with the girls from work - A guy actually told a co worker that she was "Hotter than dough nut grease!" Now that was funny! On the other hand, a old school mate grabbed my boob, so having just enough drinks to make me do something about it, I grabbed him between the legs! He said he did not appreciate that! I said, I did not appreciate being grabbed either.

The only problem I see with these pithy quotes is she may become too used to you being a friendly, good natured guy.

Remember chicks dig a$$holes, and you may be ingratiating yourself in the wrong manner. She also has to know that you have a dangerous side, or you will become nothing more than a good buddy that she would never imagine sleeping with because that would ruin what you guys already have.

Been there, done that. It's a one way street down heartbreak street!

Be careful.

Be careful.

But in addition to being nice and friendly I make it abundantly clear how I want things to go on to the next level. It was a good day today. Maybe it's soon now when it will. :) Or.... maybe heartbreak street is ahead again too. She's worth pursuing till I find out!

But what about the concept of "playing hard to get"? What are your thoughts about that, HH? I wonder if coming across always as, "Hey I'm nuts for you baby, just say the words anytime and I'm your guy" might better be spliced with a little hard to get here and there. There seems to be something psychological about playing hard to get that makes the other person seem suddenly more attractive. Sort of along the lines of being a "challenge" and "absence makes the heart grow fonder", probably eh?

But yet, playing hard to get is hard for me to do. After all, I'm trying to keep showing I'm interested, not uninterested!

Thanks for your insights!

Wow you are brave. :)

I agree discipline is a good thing from a coach. But I'd prefer along the lines of Bill Cowher and Tom Coughlin. People like Knight, Mike Ditka, and Billy Martin are too irate and engage in tirades. They'd be better as Marines drill sergeants!

I've followed Bobby Knight pretty much all of my life. He is very similar to Cowher and Coughlin. He has made plenty of mistakes, but nearly every player that has played for him over the last 30 years would attest to the fact that he is a great coach and an even better person. He has a temper and unfortunately that is the only side of him the media likes to put on SportsCenter.

I'm sure most everyone that reads this thread is not an IU fan, so you won't like him. I also liked him because he was my coach and he kicked your coach's butt on a regular basis with less talented players.

Surprsied me though since it was all of a sudden and in the middle of the season. Not like Texas Tech is doing bad. 3-3 in the division, 11-8 overall. Undoubtedly they are not good enough to go the distance, as a Kansas or Texas is. But they're still competitive.

Well, they said his son is taking over. Guess they want to let him benefit from head coaching experience now instead of waiting till next season to begin at the helm.

Bobby is just handing over the reigns(sp?) to his son. It has been in the works for years. I'm glad he is handing Pat a decent team so he has a chance to succeed. I think Pat Knight will do well. He's much more laid back than his dad but has benefited from his knowledge. Kind of like how Mike Krzyzewski benefited from being an assistant for Bob Knight. The trick for Pat Knight will be recruiting at TT. I'm sure he'll do fine. I hope Bob Knight enjoys retirement because he has definitely earned it. Olympic Gold Medals, PanAm Gold Medals, countless Big 10 titles, 3 NCAA titles, and the most wins in NCAA Men's BBall history. Not a bad resume.

Funny enough, you never hear former players say anything but great things about Bob Knight. The people who have a hatred for him are the media. And since I'm guessing you've never met him or any of his former players, you are basing your opinions off of what the media says.

You're right I have never met Bobby Knight, but I'm sure he would be an engaging character.

I have a problem with the things that have been caught on tape though, and I'm sure there were many more that weren't.

Bobby is obviously a brilliant coach because he's only one of 2(?) coaches to win more than 800 games or something crazy like that.

I'm sure those stats are all wrong, but it's just something I thought I knew off of the top of my head.
