I feel like the naked pics of his exes are more important to him than I am.
I do everything in my power to make him comfortable in our relationship—including neglecting a friendship with a guy I used to hook up with.
So, if you happen to find a Scottish lad who you like and you think may like you, I would say this: HANG IN THERE, GIRL. The thing to remember about guys - Canadian, American, Scottish or otherwise - is that they tend to Look, I don't make the rules, just the observations, ok?
But in my experience, there seems to be a more old-fashioned approach to how men are perceived and portrayed in the UK than in Canada.
What can I say, they like rigid social codes over here.However, I still think there is some hang over from the "olden times" when it was generally encouraged for men to be the "strong and stoic" type.Clearly I don't approve of such encouragement because I think it's important to remember that men are a lot more complicated and dare I say it, delicate than we let them be.He said that he doesn’t look at the photos but nonetheless refuses to get rid of them.He knows how uncomfortable it makes me to have these photos in our home but thinks this is a “slippery slope,” and that next I’ll be insisting he get rid of his wedding album and all other remnants of his former relationships.In Glasgow, at least, people talk about the "hardness"of the cities inhabitants; it's not called a Glasgow Kiss for nothing and Glaswegian men are allowed to show limited emotions: anger (usually when their football team loses), elation (usually when their football team wins) and general day-to-day being at peace with the world. Now, obviously this is a sweeping generalisation and not true of all Scottish men.
