How I handled my latest shit test!

She didn't like the way I answered the question to her friends as she is uncomfortable and insecure about my solo hiking trips.

The question was innocent enough, "are you a hiker or a camper?"

My response was "I am a hiker, I take a solo hiking trip once a year, but since meeting my girlfriend I have started enjoying camping as well."

Her friend started in with why don't I invite my girlfriend, I laughed and said I guess you do not understand the definition of solo i.e. alone. At that moment the good mood of my girlfriend went South.

I began these solo hiking trips before I met her and I wasn't going to discontinue them any time soon. They are my chance to re-evaluate the year that has gone by and look at the year ahead. This is my time with nature my thoughts, and God. I watch no television and spend four sometimes as much as 6 hours a day without seeing another human as I hike.

The hour-long trip home was almost total silence except for the one time she decided to tell me why she was so upset. I listened, empathized, and did not defend, explain, or justify. The good thing was there was some great music on the radio.

She was pissy the next day so I kept communication short and sweet. She even did something to cause herself more work, stating an issue I was going to help her with that she no longer needed me to do it even though she was working all day I would not have time to do it.

I had to work that night so I left it at that. The good morning text I sent was short and sweet, based on her response I still sensed she had some attitude. It was Sunday but she had to go in and work. Then I decided it was time to be me.😈😈😈

This was my next text:

If you wanna come by for some hot sweaty sex later on today feel free😈👅😘🐙

She just texted me she's done with work on her way to my house.

What I have not done since is apologize. I answered a question that was asked. Her issues or insecurities related to it are her's to deal with not mine. I will take my solo hiking trip every year. I will go on men's retreats, I will have trips I do with other men in addition to the trips we take together.

Telling, complaining, whining to your wife or girlfriend that you want more intimacy is one of the most unattractive and repulsive things you can do with a woman. Why? First it shows that you're not i
