This is Spike's partner, Tony.
I'm here to introduce myself and express myself here. I'm opinionated, intellectual, funny, been around the block a few times and hope you're entertained by whatever gets written here.
I usually edit my writing intensely but you're getting this raw. I'll do my best to eliminate typos but I ain't promising you that I will. :-)
Men and women are funny. They each get upset, confused, deflated, excited, unraveled and enchanted but not for the same reasons and not by the same things. What's funny to me is that both men and women are different, have always been different and always will be different - yet rather than look for why that is so and why that's good for us, we make them wrong because, "I wouldn't do things that way!"
For example, women love a man they can count on, yet lose interest if he's predictable. What's the difference? Men love having sex anytime they want but if a woman wants sex just as much or just as soon they look at her as a slut. Women want to be looked at by men as more than a set of boobs and ass but look at men for what they can do for them and how stable he is financially - like he's a wallet. Who's objectifying whom?
The funny thing is that men know they don't understand women and women know men don't understand women. Men have no problem with the fact that they don't understand women but women have a big problem with the fact that men don't understand them.
On the other hand, women don't understand men and men know women don't understand men but for the most part, men don't have a problem with this fact. What's funny is that women THINK they understand men because they can predict what a man will do. They'll be right just enough to think they understand him when the truth is that they don't understand him at all - why he does things.
So ladies, why is it a problem for you if a man doesn't understand you? Why is it so hard for you to get men to understand you? How hard are you working on helping him understand you? Why do you get mad when we don't remember things or multitask or do what you ask us to do or notice anyone else's boobs but yours or try to solve your problems or glaze over when you give us too much details or freeze when you start crying or say, "yes, dear" in order to get out of trouble or avoid you when you ask us, "Do you like this dress on me?" We don't have a problem when you say, "Can you carry this for me?" or ask us to kill a bug or "let" us pay your bills or let you give us a hard to during that time of the month or go shopping with you (well, some of us anyway), make faces when we scratch our "jewels" or have your "girls' night out"?
Men Are Not Women!
I say, your relationships with men will improve when you begin understanding us rather than complaining that we don't understand you.
Any women out there interested in understanding men?
