One Flaw in women

Post 1

Rosa Baggins, (see LOTR appendix Hobbits Family trees for more information)

Women have strengths that amaze men.
They bear hardships and they carry burdens,
but they hold happiness, love and joy.

They smile when they want to scream.
They sing when they want to cry.
They cry when they are happy
and laugh when they are nervous.
They fight for what they believe in.
They stand up to injustice.

They don't take "no" for an answer
when they believe there is a better solution.

They go without so their family can have.
They go to the doctor with a frightened friend.

They love unconditionally.
They cry when their children excel
and cheer when their friends get awards.

They are happy when they hear about
a birth or a wedding.
Their hearts break when a friend dies.
They grieve at the loss of a family member,
yet they are strong when they
think there is no strength left.
They know that a hug and a kiss
can heal a broken heart.

Women come in all shapes, sizes and colors.

They'll drive, fly, walk, run or e-mail you
to show how much they care about you.

The heart of a woman is what
makes the world keep turning.

They bring joy, hope and love.
They have compassion and ideas.
They give moral support to their
family and friends.

Women have vital things to say
and everything to give.

However, if there is one flaw in women,
is that they forget their worth.

But:

Women are human. And individual. To be human is to be imperfect. That is, to have both merits and faults. Each woman is an individual, then, about whom one should not really generalise, except for their having general biological or social attributes such as the biological ability to give birth to children, for example, which does not necessarily limit their role in life to the upbringing of such children (social), if indeed the individual's choice or medical status leads to the bearing of children at all (social).

On the slightly unfair level of generalisation, however, from this man's perspective, which I emphasise, the main flaw in many women's make-up is to need men as a fulfillment of self, although this is likely to have been a product of a particular society and its particular cluster of attitudes.

This is, after all, not so very far from the main flaw that you offer, TT.

Funny you should mention that. I (a woman) tend to give up on my social activities once I've met a man. For me I've felt guilty if I still do these things and see it as a way of complete devotion and love to one person, but alas men see this as dependence and seek independent women. I think this has been the cause of many of my relationships failing.

men require dependent women, but don't many of them actually seek dependant women?

I suppose it depends on their basic level of intelligence and, more importantly, on their level of maturity and any unmet psychological needs.(?)

Thanks such a lot for your contribution,smiley - ok. Do come back at me if you need to, I'm not an expert on women or anything, nor do I pretend to be.

smiley - musicalnoteI remember days
Or at least I try
But as years go by
They're a sort of haze
And the bluest ink
Isn't really sky
And at times I think
I would gladly die
For a day of sky smiley - musicalnote
