What Women Want…

22-Aug-07 11:16 pm EDT Leave a comment Go to comments

You may have noticed if you know me (as most who read these little artilces do) and there’s one topic conspicuously absent: sex.  It’s not because I have nothing to say about it.  Nor is it because there’s nothing going on in that department for me (although my social life has been a little, shall we say, uninspiring lately).  But while doing some coding for my company tonight, the TV was on again in the background and the show was all about women discussing their views on sex.

I wouldn’t call myself the biggest expert on this subject, but I do offer a number of useful experiences.  And I still marvel at some of my friends and people I just know – at how their relationships seem to be failing for what are obvious reasons.  And these people I speak of seem completely oblivious to those reasons!  Particularly in the department of heterosexual or bisexual men who are dating women and are baffled (in one poignant case) that their ongoing belittlment or insulting of thier partner yields a distancing of themselves from that parnter.  Or, in another case, absolute inattentiveness to their partner’s wants or desires – it’s just about the sex.

I’m glad I’ve kept my relationships simple.  They’ve all failed for one reason or another to this point, true.  But I know exactly why in every case.  And I’m confident I’ve neer been cheated on, and I’ve always – ever been honest with my partners.  I’ve respected them, treated them well – been an adult and not beeen a total pig.  And, while I wouldn’t describe myself as especially romantic by nature – I know how to be; because it’s appreciated by others.

What’s more frustrating is watching such painfully stupid melodramas unfold before my very eyes without being able to tactfully explain the problem to one or both parties – because it’s none of my business, unless asked directly.  (And probably not smart to intervene even then.)  Nor was it much better hearing those same complaints from women about their own love lives.

Again, I’m no expert on women.  But as I heard each articulate their likes and dislikes – none of it seemed terribly surprising.  But for all the lack of success in my personal sex life of late – and the seeming infrequency with which I have asserted myself in recent social contexts – I gotta say I’ve been and will likely yet make an amazing boyfriend by the sounds of it all.

And that’s a sad statement, in my view.
