It’s high time we put the most enduring myths about human behavior to bed, and see the mind—and the world—as it is.

I have had lots of arguments on intro-extro issues with her(she is more extrovert than me: jumps on kids at street). Big age difference adds to it (me 43, she 23). Imagine us somewhere in Middle East. After a year we had reached kind of balance by compromising and TRUST. But lately she warned me about a smile on facebook (to an old female friend who forms no danger at all). In my short FB conversation was no sign of flirting or whatever. That was why I suddenly got exploded of anger. Also because I mainly work home, and have almost no contact with other sex, so this is the only socializing manner. Instead she goes to college, attends courses and meets lots of men and boys who might be interested in her friendly chatty and sweet character. I had tolerated that without limiting her practically, as a matter of trust based on mutual love. So I told her: how you dare to blame me for a innocent smile icon on FB, while you come back from a exhibition, where you have widely smiled to lots of men that you meet up on regular basis! It took us a heavy week till she finally gave up and excepted her mistake. But since I felt she did not mean it, I still feel the need to take revenge. Tonight I asked he not to call. But she did, and I ruined her by blaming her for being with classmates having fun, while she had claimed it was only for study. We do live apart, and I have the feeling she is trying to make a faithful sugar daddy of me. I am too rational and too sensitive to accept such a role, and she seems confused and unchangeable. Hope additional comments will help me out (cause we still love each other).
