Talk about it ladies…
As I get older I’ve come to realize that men are more confused today then ever before. Let’s not factor in the economy although it may have something to do with it however, it’s an ongoing problem that I’ve been experiencing within the past 5 years and so has my girlfriends, cousins and aunts. Let’s discuss what we think men really want in a relationship; I really wish I knew. Let’s start off with some qualities we women have. We’re spiritual, educated, j.o.b., good credit, a great personality, a life with goals hello…check, check & check – can someone please explain what the problem is? They say “men” want a smart, goal oriented women with a life of their own and when it smacks them in the face they don’t know what to do with it. I’ve personally heard, you’ve done it all Gaila -college, homes, family, career and now entrepreneur all accomplished before the age of 45. Well what are these men expecting me to do sit around and be needy and wait? I am not trying to replace men; I’m just a go getter and if that intimidates you then this is not what you really want and be honest about it. I’m neither bossy nor pushy and I don’t flaunt my stuff around but, the moment I sit down and have one of these conversations with either a potential partner or good friend….they’re like “yep you’re one in a million and you are exactly what men want? So what’s the problem? I can play the damsel in distress and cook your dinner without it being a chore and everything else that goes along with a good partner. Men…HEAR ME NOW we don’t want to be leaders in our personal life….being the boss at work is something different; so seriously what do you want? I don’t mind asking for cash when I need my hair and nails done. Matter of fact, I can’t remember the last time a man offered to wash my car or gave me cash and said do what you want with it because you deserve it. Where in the hell is chivalry? I was told this past summer “I don’t know what to do with you” because I was moving too slow and or I didn’t invite him into my home. Ladies you know playing it slow because you really see potential, being cautious. I don’t understand it; you move fast then you’re a tramp (or worse), you move too slow, you look as though you’re not interested. You can’t win for loosing!
It’s black or white guys…be straight up about you want.
Ok audience let’s get this dialogue started!
