Yarnlady eluded to the difference.
The women will always make us suffer their scorn, men will just come out with it, "Hey man, what's the deal?" an example.... We men know how to settle a dispute quickly, although not always peacefully, women can be civil while driving the dagger into the back LOL

They're about even, but the woman will be more sneaky about it, and the man will be meaner about it.

Good observation I think you are right.....The reason I ask this question is that I have been divorced eight years and my ex has continued to do things to me for spite. She tries to drag me through the hot coals ever chance she gets, yet I still cannot bring myself to reciprocate. Two wrongs don't make a right I guess is the way I am thinking about this. I still don't think doing something to her for spite will make my life any better. Thanks Yarnlady

A woman, every time. A man will deal with a problem quickly and aggressively, then let it drop and move on with his life, but a woman will nurse her venom for ever, and will have her revenge for any imagined slight, however long it takes. Did you know that the Israeli Army had to withdraw women from front line positions? Not because they were weak and feeble, but because they were vicious psycho killers!

Okay, i'm a woman but i am an honest woman. I think us females have a harder time dealing with things & letting them go. If we have the power to make somebody miserable chances are we will use that power in our lifetime at least once if not a lot more.

I aggree with the previous answers. I think men have more of a concience, where as the woman will   justify in her mind whatever she does  no matter how terrible it is. It is your fault dude.

Being a woman myself, I hate to admit it, but, I believe the women will act more out of spite than a man.  We women can be sneaky devils if we have a cause to (or believe we have a cause).  And, yes, Socrates, I have heard of women that carry their revenge taking for years at a time.  It seems to become an obsession, a sort of sport to see how much misery they can deal out.  I do admire you that you are not seeking your own revenge.  It takes a good person to rise above such childish antics.

As much as I hate to admit it...I would say women do. I think that a guy will straight up lay the problem out and tell you his views...it may or may not be harsh...but a woman will hold a grudge for a long time...even if you think she has gotten over an issue...she is just planning her revenge! =)

We women tend to hide things from the men, how do you think we keep the food from all of you when we're on diets? So we would be sneaky but the men could think of very mean things but depending on the woman and how old she is. Well then you'll be surprised at what we come up with.  :)  :P

Hahahaha sorry i ment that some women go to the max on some things. Like how a third-teen year old is in fight and how they blow things out of paportion but when older, like after collage and during, the women will mature. But men do know when to stop, but it also depends on who the person is cheating with.

Men.  So many of them think it is their right to hurt others.  I think it is about 5-1.  When women reach this stage, they seem to have less empathy.
