"i'm just like that"

ever since i dated what's his name, the phrase "i'm just like that" touches a different nerve. i swear if the next guy i date says that, i'm gonna flip out on him... and probably dump him the second time he says it. if a guy goes "i'm just like that" in a relationship, what i hear is "you're not important enough for me to adapt to you, i'm just like this, deal with it." it's like me hearing "yeah i do drugs, i'm just like that" wtf. does the phrase "i'm just like that" JUSTIFY ANYTHING? i personally think that phrase has a hidden message behind it every time someone says it. the phrase "deal with it" is always behind it: "i'm just like that (deal with it)." and i want to say "NO!" if i care enough to say something about it, the least you can do is THINK about what i said. if i didnt care about the person, like i'll bother to say anything. yes it's not good to try to change ppl, i should take them whole heartedly. and i'm normally not the kind to ask ppl to drop one of their characteristics for me or say anything unless it was repetitive. but if i'm mentioning it, even tho it seems like it, i'm not demanding you to change, but to tell you how i feel about it and obviously i find it important enough to mention it to you. and if it bothers me, it might bother other ppl. the least you can do is think about it. so dont give me a slap in the face by saying "i'm just like that"

i wont take it.
thanks

What did he do to make him say "I'm just like that" to you? Was he a crack head?

Yes!

"I'm just like that" is a horrible excuse, both for not trying to make a change in yourself, and for someone to avoid PUSHING a change in someone who's "just like that," especially if it's going to be beneficial.

But like you said...just because they're "like that," doesn't mean you have to take it. ;)

i know sometimes gf's/bf's try to change their SO's a lot but...
just b/c u're like that doesn't mean it's a valid excuse.
"you're an ass." "i'm just like that." lol.

basically i think it's code for, "i don't like/respect you enough to give you a straight answer/explanation." or it can be seen as "we are not compatible." and you know what? it's not worth it and it's time to move on. :D (yea, we can put both our sayings together!)

you know. those two phrases go well together.

It's not worth it helps boost the "it's time to move on" LOL

ohoh!! we can add lok's "screw it then" too. even MORE effective.

"screw it then. it's not worth it; it's time to move on." LOL.

Am I the only one that doesn't necessarily see a negetive meaning for this phrase? I mean, depending on the situation sure it can be really bad, but what about when you do something really sweet for your gf and she says "you're sooo00Oo cute!" or something along the lines and you say "I'm just like that". I've said it many times and ppl don't get on my back for it. If you don't care, you'll hate the guy for it. If you do, you'll try to take it the right way. Even if its a lost cause. Maybe...

i've just always saw it as a negative phrase. basically said when someone is critizing or something along the line one of your characteristics and you want them to shut up.

i never experienced someone saying "i'm just like that" when it comes to something like "ohhhhh that's so sweet of you" altho i do see how it can work. usually, i think, when complimented, you'll say "thanks" or just be shy about it.

i dunno. for me, i only heard it used during the first example mentioned
