Seriously, I have lived long enough to believe there really is something to the metaphor that men are from Mars and women are from Venus.

At age 82 ( male's age), every woman wants a man who isn't constipated 24/7 and perpetually complaining about piles of bleeding, pulsating hemrroids.

@Foxfyre,
How true-- especially as you get older the notion of women and men coming from different planets seems more than a clever title to a book.

As you get older what you once thought you had in "common" with someone, turns out to have been something more along the lines of being young and naive and resilient.

@Cliff Hanger,
Yep. He says, lets have the neighbors over for a cookout. I'll do the cooking.

She hears, you call the neighbors, vacuum, dust, kick the dirty socks under the bed, go to the market and get all the stuff, set the table, get the meat ready to go on the grill, prepare the beverages, make all the side dishes and plan something for dessert, and clean up after the party.

She says, let's go to a movie.

He hears, turn off the football game, get up out of your favorite chair, shower, shave, dress up, clean out the car and go get gas, and be pleasant during the sappiest chick flick of the year.

I on the other hand have lived long enough to believe:

"Women are from Earth, men are from Earth. Deal with it."

I'd say most of them were-- but you don't care because you have a lot of energy to burn and because you're young you Love the drama of it all.

I think back to all the people I've met along the way-- not only romantic interests-- but friends who fit the moment at that time-- and now poof! they are either long-forgotten or a memory.

I guess it's all a matter of perspective. I'm in favor of "dealing" with it only to a point- communication matters-- although what you've said may be tongue in cheek-- someone usually suffers from that attitude.

I think more people suffer if you have a blanket rule about how you think about a group of people (let alone an entire gender) rather than consider them as individuals. But I don't have the benefit of your experience.

@Foxfyre,
Very true and damn funny! I can't stop laughing out loud... Poor men, it's never an easy task for you to get alone with women.
I would love to add 2 more about what women want.
1. No bad breath.
2. No stink feet.
