You Think Too Much....

One exasperating trait of men many women dislike is the general tendency to survey problems and then go about solving them in their own unique way.  It could be that this is wired into the male DNA from the hunter/gatherer days, but some of the modern day consequences of this characteristic are poorly done home repair projects, lack of foresight in financial and retirement planning, and a complete aversion to road maps among many other unattractive traits. 

The most egregious of these, however, is the male attribute that imagines that he has a new and brilliant insight to the way a woman may be running her life.  While this is perfectly acceptable, arguably gallant, when it is requested of them, much more often than not these pearls of wisdom are ushered forth without any form of invitation. 

Women are very accomplished and have gotten quite far without the sage advice of a male on how to go about their business.  Suffice it to say, the worst kind of advice is that of the unsolicited variety.  Add to that the fact that most men don’t have a very good grasp of women anyway, and then you have some really useless information being foisted upon a soon-to-be angry member of the female half of the population.  

Let’s proceed and find out how to love women, and by not trying to figure them out, leaving everyone much happier.
