As I sit here with hair color on my head covering up my natural highlights that come with age, I'm pondering men. Being recently remarried we just celebrated our one month of wedded bliss. Ok, maybe not perfectly blissful but definitely good. As women we are totally different creatures then men. We find different things funny, we deal with stress differently,we approach problems differently and we definitely handle our emotions differently!
I'm a Pisces and we tend to be a bit dreamy, emotional, sometimes seem detached, very sensitive and maybe a flair for the dramatic. Poor Mr. SN he is the most calm, non emotional, and even tempered person I have ever known.
So you can imagine this poor man's surprise when I have one of my emotional break downs or get sensitive to something he may have very nonchalant he may have said. He says he's never had to deal with anyone behaving like that. (not sure if he was married to a robot previously) So it is an adjustment on both our parts we knew this going in to this.
I have recently started reading the book The proper care and feeding of Husbands by Dr. Laura Shclesinger. Now granted I don't agree with everything she has to say but a lot of it makes sense. I think we sometimes forget that men do have emotions and feelings.
I guess men aren't really all that complicated they just want what we want love,respect and understand. They just want to know you will love them and need them. They don't want to be nagged and berated. I know sometimes I have been known to nitpick and not recognize the good things. I find it goes a lot better if you do praise your hunney for the good things too. Rather then always concentrating on the negative! Our men go out and work hard for us and our family,they do want what's best for us.
We obviously picked these men to marry because we saw something in them we loved,needed and desired to spend the rest of our lives with.
