What Women Want?
By Lolae Joline Lambert
The other day on a social networking page a friend posted a video of a man, obviously trying to be funny, attempting to clue men in on what women want. It was cute and may even have hit on some key topics, but from the get go, let’s face it, how could a man ever possibly know or understand what we want. At best they can guess.
Men on the other hand are simple. No matter what they say their needs are transparent. They want a mommy who will sooth every hurt with great affection and attest to the fact that they are the greatest thing since sliced bread. They want a women who is not only maternal , but can cook like Mom, too , while never making it clear to the “real” Mom that she may have even surpassed the requirement. And lastly, they want a woman who behaves like a saint in public, but has the morals of an alley cat in the bedroom, but only for them. I think that about covers their wants and needs….Comfort, food, sex and not always in that order.
If you would ask a woman what she wants, as silly men do on occasion, they will get complex answers like World Peace and begin to tell you how to achieve the goal. They will tell you they want love, generosity, kindness, etc. in the world and that all hunger should end. They even have a plan to accomplish these worthwhile goals. They will go on and on about why it is not happening, what could be done, and when it should be completed. They approach everything like the grocery list. Always try to get the best deal without sacrificing quality or flavor. They will tell you they want romance, but clearly to each women that means something different. They will tell you they want you to listen…note listen…Not fix. They will tell you anything you need to hear to get you outside while they clean the house, or read a book. Men’s untimely questions have no place in these environments. Either pitch in and help or leave!
I could go on and on, but let’s agree to agree that women are complicated creatures. Or are they? Despite the fact they have a vocabulary to communicate with numerous words on a subject, actually have read some books, apply what they learn, and study men like bugs under a microscope, it really boils down to this. Women want a man like Daddy who will be there no matter what and provides a comfortable place to live, love, and learn. They want a man who is polite and actually uses manners in public. They want hot steamy sex with preferably a man who looks like the 21 year old that mows his lawn with his shirt off on a hot summer day with the body of a Greek God. True the 21 year old lacks knowledge about how to please a woman, but his stamina alone will most likely get the job done.
So, I ask you, for all the hype about our differences, are we really that different after all?
