Well, I can't let this one go by!
Men? Oh boy, Some want what they can't have, and for a time you may be it!!!
Doreen is right, a challenge, the ultimate prize!!! And we're all that right? Well, come on ladies, aren't we? Ok, seriously though, once you open yourself up completely and show yourself you are VULNERABLE. They want honesty, sincerity but many are not honest with you in return, some want NO committment. Some only want self-gratification. Some will claim to do anything for you and it seems they are but when you really need them - they bow out.
BUT, there are many wonderful men in the world. I know, I've known some. There are some who are there for you every step of the way and some who just cannot be what you need. Let's face it, some women have such horrendous problems I don't blame them for shying away!!!
I have a wonderful friend who is a man. The reason the friendship lasts is because there is no sex not that he didn't want it! But the reason it lasts is because the friendship was more important to him than the sex. At times if I did not have this friend I would have lost my mind!
But a man in the romantic sense, has to be able to give you more because we're worth it, we deserve it and if they can't, find someone who can.
and No, I really don't understand them either, just that they smell great, feel great, look great and they are by nature,
physical. We think with our emotions more than the physical, well, don't we?
The best thoughts I can offer is in the long run?
We really can survive with or without one, it's just that with one is a whole lot more appealing, don't settle......be good to yourself.
all this aside, I love 'em anyway
