Friday Two Cents: What Men Think


Apologies for the tardiness of this post but I was somewhat engaged over the past three days.  It had to do with Valentines Day with something I discovered and was wondering about.

It all started with Valentine’s Day when I was spending a very enjoyable time with a friend of mine, but through the course of the evening we started talking about the differences between men and women.  She then showed me this video clip on YouTube called “He Said, She Said”.  In it, it showed the different points of view of men and women on two different dates.  We both had a hearty laugh yet the video did make me think.  Do men really think in this way and more importantly why don’t I?

This video has mature scenes and coarse language. Viewer discretion is advised. 

The parts in which the men are recounting the evening were truly interesting.  The first guy saying he had a great time and the women a horrible time and I agreed with the woman. But the second man saying that it was a terrible night and the woman wonderful, I would have said it was a great evening too again agreeing with the woman.

This video showed that the men are just thinking about themselves and their needs were the women are thinking about hers but also his needs.  Is that how men are supposed to think because I would have to agree with the women on this.

When I am with a woman I want to make the evening enjoyable not just for me but for her as well.  In fact I get great pleasure when she has a wonderful time and I help make it happen.  Not just to get lucky but to know that I had a hand in making someone happy.

I don’t know maybe I’m just a hopeless romantic.  I give flowers because I want to and I know she will be happy with them.  Or I will cook her dinner, give her a massage, give her a drawing of her I drew or go for a walk in the country because making her happy makes me happy.  Besides I enjoy those activities too.  Does this make any sense because I have always thought in this way?  Am I one of the few romantic guys left that want to make her happy?  I hope not.

Call me old-fashioned but I guess when you are in a relationship, I really think of it as a partnership.  That you both work together to make each other happy.  For you see I think a relationship as a bank account.  You cannot make any withdrawals unless you make a few deposits.
