DO MALES n FEMALES EXPERIENCE EMOTIONS THE SAME WAY ?

Do the nouns mean the same thing
when identifying what emotions r felt by males
as distinct from females ?

I believe that some of the emotions r the same
in both sexes, for instance: fear.

Hate is probably the same emotion in both, IMO.
Is there any difference between the sexes
in how thay experience love ?

Is envy or jealousy the same in each sex ?

WhatayaTHINK ?

DUMP YOUR OPINIONS ON ME !

That's one main problem in a relationship between a woman and a man:

- They do not feel the same emotions, thus do not attach the same emotional weight to them.

However, almost everybody, at least that I know, think men and women react emotionally on the same basis, hence a lot of misunderstanding.

In addition, some human emotions, considered to be atavic, are instead acquired and a result of education. Jealousy, for example, is not perceived the same way in all cultures around the world.

I suspected as much,
but I will confess that I am not sure about this.

It is a well-known fact that women have 19876 times more emotional synapses synapsing at any given moment than any man. This is why women are prone to 'fits of anger", "bouts of tears", emotional mood swings, irrational outbursts, "flights of fancy", and why they "wear their hearts on their sleeves" and enjoy the prerogative to change their minds.

Men, on the other hand, have only the tiniest of emotions which they have been taught to repress and deny. They are taught to be "stoic", "tough", "manly", that 'boys don't cry', etc., and, as such, are not prone to displays of anything resembling an emotion. Their emotions are so weeny and disused that they have great difficulty recognizing one when it shows up, and, panicking, they go immediately into denial. Because of this disuse, they wouldn't know what to do with one if it hit them in the head.

This is basically the problem between the two sexes - one has lots of them and displays them for all the world to see and the other doesn't recognize or know what to do with them. There you have it, in a nutshell.

So, whatever you question was (something about emotions, wasn't it?), I hope I have answered it to your satisfaction.

This surprises me, DAVID. I knew men realized fear, such as in the hunt, or when approached by figures of authority, dressed in uniform, but women, when cast in the same situations, seldom exhibit fear, but something different altogether -- something that resembles disdain, and, yes, indifference.

That's right but I've seen women completely lost and clueless when a man shows some emotion...

(I'm sorry, Francis, but David is moving in on my woman and I have to make a stand. Surely you can understand that, being French and all)

We just don't want to laugh at their terrible acting ability and we're wondering how to fake some sympathy... you know, like a fake laugh at a bad joke?

Ok, people, David has always been there for me, and I love him like a brother, but this whole thread is getting out of control.

Why, my friends, does DAVID insist that he is human?

Why does he feign interest in women?


He seeks nothing but his own self-destruction and for that I weep.
