Wake up before the woman, and make your escape. Problem solved.

If I ever meet a woman who is even capable of waking up grumpier than me, I'll marry her on the spot.  I'm not a morning person.

That would make him grumpier and therefore rule her out.

If I go to bed grumpy it's because I know that before I'm ready, I'll have to wake up and go to work. If my wife wakes up grumpy, it's probably because my snoring woke her up.

So not really in relation to the topic but in line with some of these comments...

Is it safe to say that if you're a woman and not fat or a man and not bald(ing), you should be ok when it comes to attracting a mate?  Sure, there's a lot more to the dynamics of a relationship, but just in general attraction aren't those the primary prerequisites?

rev. dave: Usually the first meeting request sets me off.


I hate meetings. Most people are unable to properly condense the information they want to share, and are unable to actually control the flow of the meeting, so they end up off-topic for an hour extra or so.

Don't even get me started on the people who feel the need to talk for the sake of talking, out of boredom or whatever.

A good meeting should take 10 minutes, unless it involves a highly technical and detailed explanation of something, at which point it should be called a "class", not a "meeting".

Some women find bald men more attractive (hell, I'm a straight guy, but if I was gay, I'd want to sleep with Patrick Stewart, for example, part of the appeal being the shiny scalp, and my wife would definitely go there).

There are some guys who find fat chicks more attractive, but probably far fewer men fit this than there are women who prefer bald guys.

In any case, when you get beyond attraction at a distance, I've been around two types of women:

A. Those with whom there was instant chemistry and we could both tell the other wanted to bang.

B. Those with whom I felt no connection, regardless of physical attractiveness.

I'm not saying I never slept with the latter, but it was just sex in those cases, not something special, you know what I mean?

My wife and I spent years circling each other socially due to various circumstances before we finally got together.

In terms of pure physical attraction, the guy's checklist generally goes: not fat, does not have an angry/biatchy/prematurely wrinkled face, decent hair, non-frumpy clothes.

But that's just what it takes to not get an automatic failing grade.  We men are complicated, ya know.

Stick with girl friends and this is not a problem. My girl friends may wake up grumpy when they see me. But they are quick to realize it is just a temporary situation, not as if they woke up married to me.
 
2013-03-12 01:05:32 AM
My wife definitely needs more sleep than I do. I work nights so I'm used to getting by on much less sleep anyway. On the days I have off and we get to sleep together I'll often get up and go downstairs for a coffee and watch some DVR stuff or a movie and let her catch a couple extra hours. It pays to let her sleep in because if she's not happy, nobody's happy.

Was this study conducted in my house?

I believe one reason women may be grumpier in the morning because we are dreading the daunting task of preparing ourselves for the day. Not saying it takes hours for me to get ready, it's really a science. But some days you just wish it was easier to get ready in the morning.

Daily routine for enhancing a woman's beauty:

1. Wash, scrub, Condish, pluck, tweeze, shave. Yes, men do this too but women's version can be much more in depth if you catch my drift.
Lotion up, maintain painted toes and fingernails.
2. Apply 3 plus different types of hair product, brush, comb, blowdry, curl, style. Apply a variety of different makeups to face, compliment with eye shadow, liner, mascara. Select lip liner,lipstick, lip gloss.
3.Pick out outfit to please men and make women jealous. Style jewelry, shoes, handbag, coat, etc.

Go to work.
Go to gym.
Repeat steps 1-3.

Shiat can make you grumpy and want to snooze a little longer.
Get off my back and please bring me coffee.

My ex was extremely grumpy in the mornings. That would last until about noon.

And then, the was grumpy in the afternoons, too. In the evenings, she upgraded to mean and surly.

This did not last long.
 
2013-03-12 02:13:23 AM
My wife could sleep for days on end if allowed. Im lucky to get six hours a night. I also hop out of bed ready to go whereas she may need an hour or more before she is actually moving.

On the plus side, she's up for sex pretty much every day. Sadly, it's me, more often than not, who plays the tired card.

Ok for girls:

How do you muster the energy to actually fix your hair and do your makeup in the morning? I ask you this because as a fellow woman, I do not have this energy and I usually walk around with crappy hair and no makeup. I have no guy to wake up next to so the grumpy wakeup doesn't apply to me.

My favorite is the moron that chimes in on something they have no information about, rattling on for 15 minutes with various theories and speculations, in the process cockblocking the one person that could have correctly answered the question in about 30 seconds.  The entitlement society the US has become can be super annoying in discussions that require actual answers to questions about actual events.

EsteeFlwrPot: Ok for girls:

How do you muster the energy to actually fix your hair and do your makeup in the morning?


Honestly, I don't bother.  I put my hair in a ponytail and I'm good to go.  No hair dryer.  No "product."  No curling or straightening.  I always apply sunscreen--ALWAYS!--but I don't always do make-up; if I do put on make-up, it's minimal (like, takes three minutes or less).  I don't wear nail polish (though I may apply a clear nail-strengthening polish on the weekends).

Of course, I'm a PhD student, so I can get away with my otherwise unprofessional appearance.

When I had a real job in a cubicle farm, I put some more effort into my hair, but I didn't wear any more make-up than I do now.   Picking out an outfit to wear was always the big time-consuming event of my mornings (especially true when you work in an office full of biatchy, judgmental women).

Hah, THIS.  I throw on jeans and a t-shirt and put up a ponytail.  It seems in academia (at least in the circles I've run in) that the crazier your hair, the better you're regarded as a scientist (this might apply to men only).  Makeup routine is toner, tinted moisturizer, a quick tint of the cheek and a pencil to the brows.  Takes two minutes, tops.

However, I am EXTREMELY grumpy in the morning.  I require a lot of sleep that I rarely get.  I have a host of shiatty sleeping issues.  I have never been a morning person, and I've always been pretty nocturnal.  Blergh.

That doesn't make sense, because if you're acclimated to a specific time zone, then your natural sleep cycle is also in tune with it, so you'd have the same problem anyways.

Actually, there is a correlation between nocturnal people and higher IQs. Something about intelligent people naturally going against the grain of normalcy.

They are still going on.  They just schedule them during daytime hours so you miss them, and then make it part of your requirement for yearly reviews to attend 90% of them so you get screwed all the time cause you aren't going in on your day off for some damn meeting and you aren't working 3 hours over your already 12 hour work night.

All I know is, the only part of the world where I can sleep naturally at night is SE Asia, when I get to play tourist there.  I fall asleep at the same time I would in the US, it just happens to sync up perfectly with the local time of day there.  As soon as I'm back in my native timezone, my natural sleep cycle goes back to not matching anyone else's.  I've known other people with the same phenomenon.  None of us are actually Asian.

Well, that and unlimited BJs, but it helped a bit more than you would expect.

HotWingAgenda: Genju: Sid_6.7: rev. dave: Usually the first meeting request sets me off.

I hate meetings. Most people are unable to properly condense the information they want to share, and are unable to actually control the flow of the meeting, so they end up off-topic for an hour extra or so.

Don't even get me started on the people who feel the need to talk for the sake of talking, out of boredom or whatever.

A good meeting should take 10 minutes, unless it involves a highly technical and detailed explanation of something, at which point it should be called a "class", not a "meeting".

/strong introvert

What about the idiot that agrees what the last person said, then repeats it in their own words, and thinks they added a new idea to the discussion?

My favorite is the moron that chimes in on something they have no information about, rattling on for 15 minutes with various theories and speculations, in the process cockblocking the one person that could have correctly answered the question in about 30 seconds.  The entitlement society the US has become can be super annoying in discussions that require actual answers to questions about actual events.


There seems to be a increasing belief across a surprisingly broad range of social circles that objective reality isn't actually that important. I hope this trend reverses itself. If not, I can only hope for a long, slow, Romanesque collapse of our civilization instead of an apocalyptic Mad Max one.

Oh please, Oppenheimer. You're fine after coffee. It takes me HOURS to fully wake up and shake the sleepy-grumpies.

/I wish the coffee maker had a timer, too.

As someone who just got reamed out by my wife for agreeing with her at 5:15 in the morning, I'm really getting a kick out of these replies...

Sid_6.7: A good meeting

is an oxymoron!

Seriously, this is the 21st farking century... We've got E-mail... We don't need to gather together in the same room and chat! People who like meetings all need to die in fires...

BlousyBrown: i see a lot of my wife this and my wife that...........where are your wives gentlemen? you seem sad and separated at this point.


Sleeping. I got the kids ready tor school this morning. I'll get her up at 7:30 when i leave. A non-grumpy wife is priceless

You'd be grumpy too, if you didn't wake up with wood in the morning.

This too shall pass.

Married 15 years. Got morning sex last weekend. And most every other. Do marriage better.


You're just married to an unusual woman, friend.

/rarely wakes up grumpy
//doesn't care for morning sex. Makes my whole day seem sleepy, since sex causes the release of melatonin and beta-endorphin. This is why men usually want sleep after sex.

more grumpier

mrswood: Was this study conducted in my house?

I believe one reason women may be grumpier in the morning because we are dreading the daunting task of preparing ourselves for the day. Not saying it takes hours for me to get ready, it's really a science. But some days you just wish it was easier to get ready in the morning.

Daily routine for enhancing a woman's beauty:

1. Wash, scrub, Condish, pluck, tweeze, shave. Yes, men do this too but women's version can be much more in depth if you catch my drift.
Lotion up, maintain painted toes and fingernails.
2. Apply 3 plus different types of hair product, brush, comb, blowdry, curl, style. Apply a variety of different makeups to face, compliment with eye shadow, liner, mascara. Select lip liner,lipstick, lip gloss.
3.Pick out outfit to please men and make women jealous. Style jewelry, shoes, handbag, coat, etc.

Go to work.
Go to gym.
Repeat steps 1-3.

Shiat can make you grumpy and want to snooze a little longer.
Get off my back and please bring me coffee.


So your vanity makes your grumpy? Got it.

stainedglassdoll: FizixJunkee: EsteeFlwrPot: Ok for girls:

How do you muster the energy to actually fix your hair and do your makeup in the morning?

Honestly, I don't bother.  I put my hair in a ponytail and I'm good to go.  No hair dryer.  No "product."  No curling or straightening.  I always apply sunscreen--ALWAYS!--but I don't always do make-up; if I do put on make-up, it's minimal (like, takes three minutes or less).  I don't wear nail polish (though I may apply a clear nail-strengthening polish on the weekends).

Of course, I'm a PhD student, so I can get away with my otherwise unprofessional appearance.

When I had a real job in a cubicle farm, I put some more effort into my hair, but I didn't wear any more make-up than I do now.   Picking out an outfit to wear was always the big time-consuming event of my mornings (especially true when you work in an office full of biatchy, judgmental women).

Hah, THIS.  I throw on jeans and a t-shirt and put up a ponytail.  It seems in academia (at least in the circles I've run in) that the crazier your hair, the better you're regarded as a scientist (this might apply to men only).  Makeup routine is toner, tinted moisturizer, a quick tint of the cheek and a pencil to the brows.  Takes two minutes, tops.

However, I am EXTREMELY grumpy in the morning.  I require a lot of sleep that I rarely get.  I have a host of shiatty sleeping issues.  I have never been a morning person, and I've always been pretty nocturnal.  Blergh.


By chance, are you in physics or astronomy?  We all seem to be night owls.  It's obvious why the astronomers would be, but I haven't yet figured out why we physicists seem to be.

\four a.m. seems like a perfectly acceptable bedtime to me

doglover: stainedglassdoll: I have never been a morning person, and I've always been pretty nocturnal. Blergh.

it's a sign of intelligence.


I found something that actually supports this:

An earlier study by Kanazawa found that more intelligent individuals were more nocturnal, waking up and staying up later than less intelligent individuals

linky linky

Bonus:

In addition, humans have always been mildly polygynous in evolutionary history. Men in polygynous marriages were not expected to be sexually exclusive to one mate, whereas men in monogamous marriages were. In sharp contrast, whether they are in a monogamous or polygynous marriage, women were always expected to be sexually exclusive to one mate. So being sexually exclusive is evolutionarily novel for men, but not for women. And the theory predicts that more intelligent men are more likely to value sexual exclusivity than less intelligent men, but general intelligence makes no difference for women's value on sexual exclusivity.

In an attempt to be concise because I was tired I was in fact misleading and snarky.  What I meant was that when my marriage was not as good, which it wasn't for a long time, I wasn't having much sex either.  Which I largely attributed to the "normal" thing that happens to married men.  Then (marriage counseling, lots of work and effort on both parts, blahblahblah) when our marriage became much better guess what?  We have more sex.  And better sex.

I meant it literally; marriage does not (necessarily) consign you to a poor sex life.  Making your marriage better usually = better sex life.  And vice versa.

fusillade762: females need far more sleep than men

Weird. I've never had a girlfriend who needed more sleep than me. They're always like "C'mon, get out of bed. I want to go shopping/take a walk/etc".


You might be on a different sleep schedule than they were. I need an hour or two more sleep than most people, so I have to be a little careful about my sleep schedule.

You nailed that one.

And what about the morans who just copy what others have said, thinking they just added insight. So annoying.
