Is it true? Men are happier than women?
It comes as no surprise: the difference between the sexes is titanic.
Men take a woman out on a date and afterwards ponder the Big Three Questions:
- Was she cute?
- Was she fun?
- And, did she flirt?
Women, on the other hand, during and after a date, mull, ponder, dwell and think way too much. As they do an instant replay of the evening they determine if their date was polite, fun, attentive, sweet, kind, flirty – but not overly so- and the list goes on. And, on.
When did this exhaustive female ‘Post Date Analysis’ start? What happened to, “Hey, that was fun. Let’s do it again. I’ll call.”
And he says, “Deal.”
Men Have Simple Needs: WD-40,
…a Swiss Army Knife, duct tape, a hammer, a tape measure, a barbecue, a remote control, a Giant’s winning streak, a Lazy-boy recliner and a few St. Pauli Girl beers and they are happy.
What’s in Your Wallet?
Men leave the house with keys, a money clip and their cell phone.
Conversely, women leave the house with a small suit case -called a handbag -with enough varied supplies to support a small nation. We have pens, paper, an assortment of cosmetics in two, tiny, smart-looking cases, a Phone, various To-do and shopping lists, a calendar, grocery coupons, mints and gum, a bottle of water, hair clips that can double as a weapon, a paperback for book club, an energy bar, a small vial of Advil, a magic stone, an extra pair of silver chandelier earrings- just in case, hand cleaner, tissues, a small bag with 6 almonds (Dr Oz’s idea) a sewing kit, band-aids, a metal nail file – can double as a weapon, a disposable camera, and a bottle-sample size- of perfume.
Be a Sport
To many guys, March Madness and Sunday Sports are of the be-all and the-end-all. Sports are like the full moon, the stars and the sky – their True North. It’s not the day to drag them to the mall and make them hold your suitcase-sized purse as you try on 15 pair of identical black slacks.
They crave, love, and relish Sunday Sports (and March Madness, Soccer, The World Series, The Super Bowl) Want to Score Points? Hand him a remote control, and he is are happy. Voila!
You Don’t Ask – You Don’t Get
And, men really want women to ask for what they want. Cute, little, flirty subtle hints don’t work. Even loud hints don’t work. Call them primitive – it is obvious our soft, whimsical and nebulous little hints are not effective. Do the boys a favor and clearly state what you want.
Anyway and everyday: women simply want to know what men are thinking about (Answer: sex). We want to know what men dream about (Answer: sex). We ponder: when it comes to flight or fright what is the limbic system of the cortex of the brain of a man thinking about? (Answer: sex)
Conclusion: Men are happy and women are luckier for it.
