The question that has plagued men since the dawn of time and one which, apparently, has never been answered to anyone’s satisfaction. Maybe it’s because men and women are intrinsically different or could it be just that we are all individuals and we don’t have the first clue what motivates each other but it’s easier to divide us into 2 categories rather than 7.4 billion?
Why do we try so hard to understand other people? At the end of the day, if we are really, truly honest, we want other people to be like us – we get us, we’ve spent time with us and we know how we tick, we’re comfortable with us…….
We want to change everyone else to be like us and that’s why so many relationships fail and why there is so much conflict in our every day lives. We don’t like people who disagree with us, we look for people who think in similar ways, who like the same things, who conform to our view of ‘normal’.
We spend so much time putting people into categories that we forget that we are all just people – amazing, wonderful, flawed. Perhaps if we took like and dislike out of our vocabularies and just accepted others for who they are without trying to understand them we’d all be a whole lot happier.
What do women want? Exactly the same thing as men and every other living this on this beautiful planet – to be free and to be happy ;O)
