I sent the article round to a few friends and collected some responses. The responses were generally gender based. The ladies would say "interesting" or something to that affect. The guys would say "load of cr@p" or "bullsh!t" and other things best left out of this blog.
A friend of mine also blogged about how Valentine's day is over commercialised. She claims that if a guy really loves you, he will treat everyday like V'day and put you on top of the world. However, I'm pretty sure that if the guy treats V'day just like 'any other day', she would positively kill him. That's the kind of illogical paradox that women have.
The article claims that women today want men who: (1) Can communicate well and establish an intellectual and emotional connection. (2) Can organise and plan things like dates and holidays. (3) Can perform domestic chores like cooking and cleaning.
All I can say is that, all that is true, but they would still like the man to get down on his knees and romance them in a traditional way from time to time. Another example of a paradox that women have. They want a guy who's both tranditional and modern at the same time. I used to tell a friend of mine that 'Mr Perfect' does not exist.
If I'm coming across as bitter, I'm not. Really. It's a fact of life that women are full of conflicting paradoxes. It just takes a certain special someone to properly reconcile all the conflicting paradoxes. [The ladies just hope that he's rich and handsome too! Haha!]
PS. Can't help but feel that the upper age limit mentioned in the article, 27, is an ominous sign. Haha.
