I was asked , "do you love me"

"YES" I replied,

"how much?"

"even more than cycling dear ", I said

    Rule #1 - one's love cannot be compared to anything, for to do so is to trivialise it.

    Stock answer - more than words can say.

    Leave it at that. Best for all concerned. :wink:
    None of the above should be taken seriously, and certainly not personally.

  • My answer is always 'without measure.'

    The response is always, 'not as much as I love you.'


    I'd change tactic and say more than you love me, but you'll end up in a playground argument.

    I was asked this over Christmas and replied truthfully: "No not really, sorry but you did ask"
    She moved out on Boxing Day. :D

    You may need to question why they are asking... it is likely to be code for I need.... shoes... handbag... clothes..... just pass me your wallet and tell me your pin!

    So a subtle diversionary answer/excuse is needed, nip to the shop buy flowers and or chocolates (note no chocolates if on a diet) and return presenting the one you love with a small token of your affection.... An £8 bunch from Asda (early evening and you may be able to pick up a reduced bunch that doesn't look too bad) will see off a £100+ spending spree in town, this also protects your bike funds for at least a month?

    I have learnt many lessons from the error of my ways! The main one is that this doesn't always work.... As I the other half is always right.

    I replied exactly that the other day and got the response, "Yeh, that's probably true."

    Wasn't that almost the line from the movie "Oliver Twist", during which the man, Bill, ends up strangling his girl Nancy?
    'Twas Mulga Bill, from Eaglehawk, that caught the cycling craze....

    Bought my wife a nice bunch of flowers today. I dont often buy flowers and thought it would be a nice gesture.

    She said, ok, what are those for? what have you done! :lol:

    Q. How much do you love me:
    A. How big is your bum.
  • The "how much" follow up is just their way of judging how much guilt might ensue if they left you for someone else. Straw in the wind.

    That made me laugh, I hope I don't remember it, just in case I blurt it out one day thinking well it was funny when I read it. :lol:

    Q How much do you love me?
    A Enough to know that I don't want a lifetime of maintenance, CSA, court costs, scrounging divorce solicitors and advocates, being forced to live in abject poverty in a one bedroom flat if I'm lucky by having to give the majority of my pay packet to a lot of people who on the whole don't deserve it, running the mill of having to hang out in pubs and bars or silly other places women frequent to find someone else who isn't egotistical enough to ask the same question.
    I ride a bike. Doesn't make me green or a tree hugger. I drive a car too.

    There's a joke in there somewhere but I won't lower the tone.
    Obsessed is a word used by the lazy to describe the dedicated!

    They also don't understand the fact that when they ask you "What are you thinking" and you answer "Nothing". You're actually telling the truth !!

    Ladies, if you're reading. It's perfectly possible for a man to be thinking nothing at all, or something as innane as "Which would win a race, a shark or a horse".

    My Mrs doesn't ask what I'm thinking anymore :D

    To make a relationship work: the guy needs good sex, good food, and the women needs everything else, if both parties learn and accept this, then happy days. :wink:

    who would win a fiight, polar bear or tiger, got to admit it kept me awake for a while

    Once both parties accept that neither can ever fully understand the other then everything falls nicely into place...

    Once i was given the "how much" question.

    Can't remember my exact reply, something along the lines of: "I can't believe you would even ask such a thing, in fact it upsets me that you question my love for you" Throw in a bit of a huff and act annoyed.....result: she took me straight to the bedroom to "apologise"

    Yep, the bear gets a 'cat-o-nine tails' the tiger gets a 'Bear claw' :D
    My money's still on the bear !
