10 Easy Ways to Deal With Me When I'm Being a B**ch

Every woman's got her moods. Most men are by turns charmed, bewildered and blindsided by them. Here are some hints to help you keep your cool when I'm being a red hot bitch:

10. Don't resist it

I cannot overemphasize this one. Resistance is the most common reason my being a bitch gets us into all kinds of trouble (and not the fun kind instigated by tequila and a hot tub).

In case you're wondering what this means, it includes saying things like, "Calm down," "Would you just relax?" "What's the big deal?" and, "You're overreacting."

9. Know that it won't last forever

Have I ever been a bitch forever? Have I? Have you ever known any women who was? (Meryl Streep from Devil Wears Prada doesn't count).

No. Emotions don't last forever, no matter what they are. That's why they're called e-motions -- energy in motion. There is no permanent state, particularly when it comes to women. We can switch from ecstatic to melodramatic in an instant, and be ready for tiramisu right after.

8. Know that it's not really about what it's about

7. Have fun with it

Are you one of those people who loves watching sh*t go down when there's something destructive happening? Are you like, daaamn, look at those waves flood over the boardwalk, or those cars floating down the street, or that (empty) house get torn up by that hurricane? Holy Sharknado, this is amazing!

6. When I act like a child, think of me like a child

Half the time when I'm being a bitch, it is exactly the same as when a 3-year-old is wigging out because s/he's sleep-deprived. There is no logical reason for the behavior -- it's a physiological reaction. As adults, we assume we're all capable of being normal, rational beings all the time.

5. Call me out (gently)

For me personally, this works best when you give a nickname to my bitchy side.
