Hmmm, so I've been asked to start a thread about the Relationship Podcast. My initial (flippant) response to the podcast was:

Shorter Paul Wheaton: the dude is always right.

I guess I can say that my own personal experience has been somewhat different than that of Paul and his friends.

Maybe because I'm a chick.

Has anybody else listened to this? What did you think??

I listened to it.
I like the story of how Paul & Jocelyn met.
The toilet seat up or down was a different POV but not an issue in my house, my husband ALWAYS puts the seat down having sat without looking as a kid!
The rest was very - all over the place and made me think they normally do a very good job of staying focused.

I do agree that it's often best to let silly things ride (don't fill up your grievance sack with toothpaste tops and unmatched socks) but in my experience, most women already do that.

Most women I know are conflict averse, and thus unlikely to start a conflict over a small thing. Of course, sometimes the small thing is standing in for a big pile of things too scary to even mention, so there's that.

I am not conflict averse, but my husband is so it evens out. I do pay attention when he opposes something. That's why I waited 14 years to get chickens! Once the door was opened, however, I took a mile.

Before recording it, Jocelyn and I spend a lot of time making a list of stuff to put in there. And afterward, I think I've thought of that many things again where "we should have talked about ...."

Mostly, I very much like the idea of two independent people who like to hang out.

But even more, I guess I challenge a lot of the things that are labeled "healthy" for a relationship. I think they are exactly the opposite.

Finally, I think it would be nearly impossible for anybody to be in a relationship with me. By the standards of most people, I would be unbearable. Which is why this podcast would be of zero value to most people.

so i super duper wanted to listen to the podcast but i am like basically penniless so my few pennies go to feedin the critters and me.. so i havent gotten it/listened to it.. but i wish i could! i have a feeling that pauls views would align much with mine. they seem to on most things (from the forums and podcasts etc of which i "know" him from at least). like i am a quiet, short, female version of paul.. always a listen and think person, not really a speak to and teach person.

I would say a good chunk of the content, or feel of the content, or gist of the content are in the regular podcasts.
 
Did Steve tell you that? Fuh - Steve. Just look at this tiny ad:
