When you stepped out your door , did you notice that the welcome mat needed a dusting? That the air was a little balmy and that cute neighbour had left her bedroom curtains open ?
Of course you did. You are a man.
Then why is that the wife's new haircut or her new wardrobe , just doest fall under that amazing radar which never misses anything of significance?
Its a mystery.
Whats with these girls and their haircuts and their feeling if you fail to notice it? Whats the big deal? How is that in any related to how you feel about them?
Imagine this :
Rose after letting go the frozen stiff Jack from the wreckage , watching him go down into the depths....thinking ; Bastard, he didn't say anything about my hair!
Yeah, Yeah, I know. You are doing it all for us and that it is insulting and humiliating when it is not even given a nod of acknowledgement. I actually get that.
But seriously. Next time , just jump us.
We are men. Getting our attention is the easiest thing there is. Especially for a woman. Just drop a pencil and pick it up. There , you have attention.
Being in a relationship with a woman is like a game of chance. You should never let her out of your sight.
'Cause you will never know what she will go and do, which then you will have to spot.
'Do you notice something different?'
Fuck! You let her out of your sight!
Ask any man, there are few words that when strung together , can make a man sweat.
We need to talk
Do you think I look fat in this?
Iam a middle child. I know what lack of attention can do. I had once, at a tender age of 10, ran away from home, leaving behind, on the writing table, a note to my mother expressing my despair of being an unloved , unwanted child. I spend the whole afternoon in the mountains around my house, heart aching with glee over the agony my mother must be going through. Towards evening, hunger drew me back to the house.
There were no worried crowds outside my house. In fact it was peacefully quite inside the house. I went in to find my mother taking a nap. I could faintly hear my brothers playing among the cashew trees in our backyard. My lunch was on the table , covered. My note still lay on the table , unread. So I did the only thing that was left for me to do. I picked up the letter, tore it up and threw it in the kitchen stove fire. Then I sat down and had lunch.
Next time ,I decided, I was going to tie up and hide my younger brother in the mountains and leave a ransom note . Then become the hero by bringing him back home after about 2 days.
Attention, I had decided, needs drama.
So if its a haircut. Go full out. Make a statement. I promise you, we will notice.
What I dont understand is this. This is for you men out there.
When was the last time you had your woman say something on the line of , 'hey, you are looking way too cool in that suit babe' or ' I love what you have done with your hair' ? When has anyone told you why she is with you or why she agreed to have your baby?
Thats what I thought.
So, are you losing any sleep over it? Do you think she loves you lesser because she never says it?
Yeah, that's what I figured.
Then Why? I ask, why do you doubt our intentions, due to our inability to verbalize our feelings for you?
Don't you understand that the reason we don't notice the smaller , subtle things you do is because we are caught up in the glare of the larger you?
