What women want from men (a must read!)

Februarie 17, 2010 in Sonder kategorie

So, I’m single and dateless. Not quite desperate yet. But after years on my own, I had to laugh at this list sent to me by another single friend, also not desperate but very definitely dateless. (Guess what she does for a living?? You would NEVER guess. She writes romance novels and is one of the best selling authors in this genre. There is a theory that those not in a relationship writes the best about romance as they can make things up as they can go along. And her success proves it. If she was in a “normal” relationship, she might not have had the energy to write a post-it, let alone a 100 000 word novel…)

(No, I’m not bashing marriage or relationships or romance, I’m just saying you can’t have a day job and write bestsellers at night if you have a husband also wanting some attention.)

Could the things us ladies want from men be the problem? Or are we the problem? Or are men the problem?  Look at the list, and decide for yourself.

I’m 40, so look at the highlighted part of the list. Am I asking for too much??  🙂 

(Disclaimer: this is meant as a joke. Men that get upset easily, run back to Mommy. If you get angry, go and hit your pillow.)
