Mars and Venus: appreciating our differences

It’s not just about our dating misadventures in Atlanta! Some times all the stars align and things go exceedingly well. There are even times when we really enjoy meeting and sparking a new romance.

It happens more than we think! You have a serendipitous encounter with someone that makes you excited and all of a sudden… dating isn’t so bad.

Even with all of our differences, we can appreciate the things that draw us to each other. That undeniable attraction and chemistry (that can take us completely off guard) is the reason we keep trying.

Ladies, what is it that you love about men? Men, what is it that women do that you appreciate?

“Mars and venus” are definitely different, but when is this a great thing?

Good morning all,

I love when you’ve been with someone for a while, at a point where you sort of start to really get to know each other. One may have a bad day and the SO picks up on it, and in his own way he makes things a lil better, if only for a moment.

Good Morning All,

Ladies, what is it that you love about men? Okay call me crazy, but physically I love the smell of a man, also hands, bald heads, hard muscles, smooth skin..etc.. But most importantly I love the mental challenge I get in dealing with men. I know women venus and mars and all that stuff..but frankly I would go doo-lolly crazy…fooling with a man who thought the way I did, or believe and agreed with everything I agreed with..how boring is that? The world is built on opposites, and I am learning to accept differences and welcome challenges..to a point anyway.

Off Topic–The following are my excuses as to why my team lost last night..

The teams gatorade was spiked.
Troy was late on the premiumn for his hair insurance coverage, hence his *((*(( defense.
Jeff Reed attempted that kick while wearing a wooden leg
The Democrats political lost is trickling down to the NFL.
The Throwback Uniforms are unlucky.
There was some kind of weird freaky Sunday storm and the Cowboys switched places with the Steelers.
We just got outplayed by the Patty Cakes.

I am whatever you say I am

Morning Gang!

Kym, imma have to cosign your first paragraph about what you love about men. All those things I love. I absolutely love working for a man also. I love and am down for my girls, but dealing with a man boss is just easier for me. He is so no-nonsense, no-drama. Just get it done. I appreciate that!

That’s why I am so completely turned off when I a meet a whiny, drama-filled dude that likes to keep up mess. Simply because I don’t expect to have to deal with PMS from a man! I took SO’s little girl to the salon on Saturday and he was have a male PMS day! Drug the appointment out for over 3 hours. You just don’t do a child like that. I have another sylist I go to, but he does a wonderful job on caring for baby girl’s hair. Otherwise, Saturday would have definitely been my last day dealing with him. But he goes thru that every now & then. And I know what you’re thinking, no he doesn’t bat for the other team.

Kimmie the second part of your post rings so true…at least it’s been my experience. They seem to go through PMS just like we do…only thing is alot of them won’t admit it but after a while you can recognize it…at least I do.

I don’t expect to have to deal with PMS from a man!

Too funny….

Good morning.

I too love the way a man smells. His touch on my body, that light stroke across my hand or simply just holding my hand. I love how more secure I feel in his presence. I love that he wants to be with me and I with him. I love men for their “alpha male syndrome” in that they want to both serve and protect…the serving part is especially nice (LOL).

A man that exhudes “authority.” Not intimidation, not fear and sometimes not even spoken…can sometimes give it to you in a look and you get it….thing that God gave him. THAT is sexy to me.

Morning everyone…

On topic: Let’s see, differences I appreciate:

>> I like that Mrs. Swiss showers, like, 5 times a day & always smells of perfume.

>> I like that she hides behind me when I have to kill a bug.

>> I like that she’s bundled up & cold while I’m about to break out in a sweat. (And I like when she puts her cold feet on me — ‘cos it helps cool me off) :lol:

>> I like that she asks 5,000 questions during the course of 1 football game.

>> Oh, and most of all, I really like that she has a va-jay-jay. That’s probably my favorite difference… :lol:

Okay…if I *really* get into this topic and start listing all of the things that I appreciate about TheDude, y’all will vote me off the BlogIsland, I won’t get any work done today and fingers will fall off from numbness after typing so much.

So….I’ll just say that I love that he loves me the way that he loves me.

(And….I will try not to come back and overkill on posts about TheDude.)

@Celisea – Not intimidation, not fear and sometimes not even spoken… most definitely. i like the low key kind of authority and strenght, that type that you know could and would handle things if necessary, be it simply a talking to or a thrashing, but isnt gonna be all “you know i can beat your @ss” all the time…
@swiss – I like that she hides behind me when I have to kill a bug – lol, thats cute, tho i gotta admit, i do the same, lol…the bugs yall have down here are waaayyy too big to be messing with…when did you get banned? lol

Now you all know I can do an unending list on this but I will refrain. LOL

What I like about some men? I like their “manliness” as it contrast to me “ladyness”. Their strength to my frailty.

What I like about MY MAN? Well I love his him. His protection and his will. His strong hugs and firm kisses. I love his take-charge-ness.

I hate a cold-hearted jerk. A guy that is so bitter that he feels nothing, not even the ice water flowing thru his veins. That’s not a man, that’s a d-bag.

exactly! that’s where the sense of peace and calm comes over me whenever i’m with him. i just feel so safe and warm. and the fact that he makes me laugh is a huge bonus. it’s wonderful the way this man makes me feel completely shielded from all the scary things in life, yet comfortable enough to be little-girl silly with him.

now i wanna take the rest of the day off and go find him. *sigh*

I like how we can be in the same room and he will send me a text to say ‘Hey you sexy thang you’. ;-)

Or that he remembers to leave my weenies on the grill just a few minutes longer bc he knows that’s how I like em.

Or that he makes sure that I get to work & back home safely everyday.

I like for a man to just be a man. Be a man and don’t be trying to be all up in my “woman-world”. I’m not trying to be all up in “man-world”. We can bring our wonderful differences and similiarities together in “we-world”! A man who is comfortable and confident in his man-ness! He doesn’t have to walk around beating himself on the chest all the time to let everyone know he’s a man!

I like a man that truly likes and appreciates women. One that doesn’t waste time beyotching about the differences but appreciates what we bring to the world.

Where issues arise is when the “differences” that are so helpful to the world get “blurred”.
