Is It A Guy Thing??
i didnt mean im more competative than she is because if she is racing me she wil put in 110% to beat me it is just she is content with what she does currently and doesnt see any need to go further which I can understand. as all of us who get off of our sofa are doing much more than most but I personally just want to go further and faster to find my limits.
wasting.....thats not competitivnes........thats just your priorities to challenge yourself at the moment.she might have different challemges......
and i agree that people who have played team sports tend to be more competitive in general......and as more men than women do that then there is a link in numbers.....
I've played rugby for 22 years and one of my best friends is our coach. We played rugby together since I was 17 ( he's a couple years younger than me but we played in the under 19's squad). He also coaches the girls team and the university team.
Now no disrespect to the ladies but this is what he said between the difference between the mens and the girls teams. The girls listen so much better and are far easier to coach than the mens team. But when it came to aggression and sheer physicality the winning competetive edge was with the men. There were the few exceptions. A few girls we would never want to piss off. But as a collective that's what he said.
He still prefers coaching the girls because they actually listen to what he's saying. where as we just piss about too much
