Are you ever confused by men? Every friggin' day.
Do you have trouble with “mixed messages?” I have problems just with the messages. I never get them. Never mind the messages being mixed.
Tomorrow evening I am going with a couple of girlfriends to a free seminar called: Making Sense of Men. Uh huh. I told E that I was going to a course that would help me understand men. He just looked at me. And then he started laughing. And hasn't stopped...
These are some of the highlights mentioned in the course:
Men are attracted to women – no news there. But, did you know there are two types of attraction? One type will have a man want to cherish you, adore you, and take care of you. The other type of attraction will have him thinking only of how to get you into bed. In Making Sense of Men you’ll discover that women are the source of both types of attraction.
Just off the top of my head, having been married for almost 13 years, I'm going to jump all over having him think only of how to get me into bed.
Learn how to listen for the words that a man says when he cares about you. In Making Sense of Men you’ll learn that, while men and women might use the same words, the meaning they give to those words can be very different. Phrases that women speak casually can have deep and significant meaning when spoken by a man. Misunderstand the communication and you could miss a critical signal that indicates a shift in your relationship.
Just the other evening, I came home from the store. E was watching a special biography on the two presidential candidates. I came in the door saying that I got salmon at the store and would like to have an early dinner. What I meant was...I got some salmon at the store for you to grill and would like to have an early dinner TONIGHT. What he thought I said was something, something, something about salmon and early dinner someday this week.
I can vouch for the fact that a critical signal was missed. And the relationship shifted. An hour and a half later...I was pissed. He was at a loss.
Tomorrow evening I will return armed with ..."loads of valuable information you can put to use right away"
If not, at least I'll have an evening out with the girls...
I am told by the source that this qualifies for Painted Maypole's Monday Mission, in which the task was to write a post in the form of a course description.
