So here’s a quick Monday post that I feel I MUST write from an undisclosed Starbuck’s location. This isn’t “jet set” just normal life, but I found it interesting. As I quietly sip my Iced Passion Tea I hear the conversations that surround me.
Do want to understand the difference between men and women? My husband and I have uncovered a secret of Men & Women that puts Men Are From Mars & Women Are From Venus to shame.
The Conversations That We Have:
Men: If you listen to men talk to each other or in a group the conversation goes like this….”Money, goals, money, goals, money goals, cars that I’ll get with the money, more goals”.
Women: If you listen to women talk to each other or in a group the conversation goes like this….”She…She….She…She…She…He…She…She….She…”
Yes men are focused on money, goals, cars and women are focused of the she du jour!
Don’t believe me, well, you’re getting homework. You’re going to open your ears and just listen!
Homework: Go to Starbuck’s or similar location and just listen, and you’ll see what I mean
Bonus Round: Want one more? Okay here it is.
The First Question We Ask:
Men: If a woman comes home and mentions to her husband/boyfriend, that she met someone new, like a new neighbor or a friend’s new boyfriend/husband, the first question her husband will ask her is…”What does he do?” Every single time. Men typically measure themselves by occupation.
Women: If a man comes home and mentions to his wife/girlfriend, that he met someone new, again a neighbor or friend’s girlfriend, the first question the wife/girlfriend will ask is either…”How old is he/she?” or possible (especially if it’s another woman)…”What do they look like or Is she pretty?” Women, whether you think you do or not, measure themselves by appearance. (Please don’t take this as a woman’s worth is only physical, that’s not what I’m saying…no need to get all crazy on me for this one)
Don’t believe me? Test it yourself.
HOMEWORK IS DUE BY FRIDAY. Go to Starbuck’s, dinner, a pool, just any social situation where you can eavesdrop and comment back and let me know what you heard!
A Tip for Women: Men need to empty. Men have caves for a reason. Please, just allow you man to go into his cave when he needs to and allow him to empty. If you do and leave him alone, he’s emerge by himself a stronger, happier man.
A Tip for Men: Women need to fill up. Women require attention, and it’s usually at the time you don’t want to give it. But if you do and honor her needs, she’ll leave you alone to veg in your cave.
Don’t believe me?
Here’s an example: Think about sex. After sex the man wants to sleep (ie. go into nothingness, empty). But women, we want to snuggle and talk (ie. connect, fill up).
