I have a questions that sorta relates: Why are some men intimidated by a woman who can beat them in dominoes?
mrsjones5--------- This question reminds me of my ex-husband: When we were dating, he taught me to play backgammon along with some advanced tricks so I could be a more level opponent for him. We played several games in a row and were--I thought--having great fun. Then all of a sudden, he gets up, grabs the pieces and flushes them down the toilet! [I kid you not!!]
Apparently, out of thirteen games, I had won eight in a row. I wasn't counting, but hewas--and was so disgusted at his losing streak that he had an absolute fit. He teaches me so I can be a more worthy opponent----and then can't hack it when he actually HAS the competition he supposedly was aiming for! LOL
Yeah...some guys are intimidated by a competent woman. [I wasn't even a gloater. I could at least understand it if I had been gloating!]
