I work with a lot of women and I’ve spent a lot of time touring the blogiverse over the past year. The impression I get is that almost all women are chronically unhappy with men in general. Women seem to blame men for their unhappiness. There is always something wrong with men isn’t there? “Men don’t tell you their feelings enough.” “There are no good men out there.” “All men whine too much when they’re sick.” “He forgot my birthday.” “Why doesn’t he call the day after a date/sexual encounter?”
I’m wondering, has it ever occurred to woman-kind that perhaps the problem is not with men, but with your expectations of us? I don’t curse my dog because she never changes the oil in my car. She can’t. She doesn’t have the physical or mental capability for the job. If you’re unhappy with men, maybe you need to examine whether or not your expectations are realistic. Men treat women very fairly in this regard. Have you ever once heard a man complain because a woman couldn’t open a jar of pickles? You’ll find that if you lower your expectations you’ll be happier more often and pleasantly surprised when we exceed your standards. Schools grade everyone on a bell curve, why can’t women?
