“And in the end, the love you take is equal to the love you make.”
To be sure, men and women have different types of power surges coursing through their hearts and minds.
Testosterone, which fuels the body and mind of a man, is far different from the estrogen which courses through the heart and soul of a woman.
Both testosterone and estrogen are such powerful driving forces throughout life that it would be unrealistic—almost archaic—not to recognize, respect, and accept some of the key differences between the genders. Because men and women are definitely wired differently.
So let’s do a quick review of several notable differences between the genders, some of which are subtle while others are glaring.
For starters, most men would rather have a liver transplant than give up their sense of independence. Because most men generally like to feel that they’re in control of their lives.
They also enjoy the feeling that they’re capable of taking care of and providing for their wife and family. Even if the woman works, the man likes to believe that she can’t do without him to take care of her.
Now women, on the other hand, thoroughly enjoy feeling the protective spirit of their man, especially if it happens to be someone whom she really loves and adores.
And although some women may not readily admit it, most enjoy having a man shower them with lots of attention, as if they’re the center of the universe.
And one who is quick to extend polite courtesies, such as opening the door for them, pulling out a chair to seat them, and asking them to dance—especially if the music has a romantic ring to it.
But most of all, most of all, women love the feeling that they are being taken care of.
Back to men, whom we women feel we can’t live without. Men want and need time alone—for no particular reason in their “man-caves”, however you define it–be it their office, den, garage, tool shed, computer room recording studio, or fitness room.
And a man especially appreciates not being called back to civilization until he is ready.
When a guy goes shopping for himself, he’s probably out to buy something very specific, like a wrench, raincoat, or pair of dark socks.
Then once he’s found the exact size he’s looking for, he’s done. Yep, finished shopping.
Women, in general, just love to go shopping.
When a woman announces that she’s headed to the mall, she may or may not have anything in particular in mind which she’s looking for.
Shopping for her may just be a routine excursion–unlike a man, who is more inclined to shop with a specific purpose.
Today’s man will probably be less resistant to going shopping with his lady if he’s given sufficient notice so he can first gather up his favorite sports page, stock market report, auto, farm, or computer catalogue to bring along to read while he waits.
Or be certain that his phone has a full charge before leaving the house in case he wants to catch up on personal calls.
And universally, most men would probably prefer to get lost—without women pointing out that simple observation—than ask for help with directions along the way.
Oh, there’s so much more to cover on this topic…!
So please tune in next week, when we’ll cover “More key differences Between the Genders”.
Meanwhile, please continue to enjoy and accept the overall magnetic differences in the “opposites attract” spirit of men versus women.
And most of all, how about joining me in the shoutout, “Hooray for Love!”
