I am 40 & Single
I am going to start this piece off with a heart-felt message from me, and every other man on the planet, to all you gorgeous, lovely ladies….
Thank you so much & we are sorry – damn sorry.
We are sorry that we are men – we make your lives difficult much of the time. We don’t do it on purpose; and that is the honest truth.
The problem lies in our emotional make up.
Women have a range of emotions so intricate that you could write a book of several volumes on each one. Men have similar emotions, but you rarely see them….
In short most men just can’t be bothered to feel that deeply about general day-to-day things that make the world go round. We are lazy with our emotions and feelings – unless of course we are talking football, motorcycles, cars or something else that gets our minds racing. Then you will see the vast plethora of human emotions on display right in front of you; when we are doing or talking about the things that we love.
This emotional laziness is the cause of many problems between the two sexes. Us men wind you ladies up into a screaming rage without even trying. Most of us men day-dream a lot – we walk around in a dazed state much of the time thinking about rubbish. This means you ladies HAVE to remember absolutely everything – other wise nothing would get done in the average relationship….
AND – THAT is the problem – Men can’t be ‘arsed to remember things because we know – YOU WILL.
You ladies just can’t understand why, after telling us something 16 times, we still can’t remember it. You think we do it on purpose when, for example, you send us to the shops for bread, toilet roll & toothpaste – AND then we come back with just a Mars bar and toilet roll. Of course this erupts into a row as we eat the Mars bar and head back out of the door for the other items.
We are not doing on purpose and we don’t mean to cause trouble. I can assure you that your man worships the ground you walk on, dreams of you at night and would be like a lost soldier without you. That’s the truth. Most of us just don’t show it. Why? Because we were never taught how to.
We were taught, by our fathers, that Mum remembered everything. Dad didn’t bother himself with the things that mum did – that’s how it was. So this cycle of mental and emotional laziness and man-day-dreaming moves from generation to generation. But it is changing. With more men living on their own and not having a woman around much – we are breaking that cycle.
Men are becoming more emotionally aware and simply more self-sufficient without our mum, girlfriend’s or wives being around. So worry not because in several generations time – you ladies will be able to put your feet up more often.
We are sorry – you’re all amazing – truly.
