A woman can say more in a sigh than a man can say in a sermon.
— Arnold Haultain
If you’ve, by any chance, seen the action-thriller ‘Heat’, you’d recall Robert De Niro punch-lining, “I’m alone, but I’m not lonely”. Cool statement to make, right? Apparently, it doesn’t seem true for everybody out there; at least not for men.
When it comes to loneliness, there’s a funny fact that I’d like to share. If men have some sort of company, they never feel lonely even if the person they’re chatting with is a total stranger. A woman, on the other hand, can feel the desolation even if she has the entire family’s attention to her. Of course, the above statement holds true only if we exclude love failures and other major depressions of life. Now, why is that?
I feel women are always looking for a spark in their relationships and are constantly on the look for something new in their lives, and needless to say men always are looking for a spark in their salaries, unless of course, you’re Tiger Woods.
When it comes to relationships, I feel women play and handle the whole game really well. They specifically know what they want from a guy, unlike men. Most men who are in a “happy relationship” don’t quite know why they got into it in the first place, and when they think back, they’ll probably only recall the way she looked at him or the way she first smiled at him. My point is, that’s enough reason for a guy to fall in “love”.
It never really matters when you’re happy, and by happy I mean when you’re in the starting phase of your relationship (six months for Indians, and 2 weeks for Westerners). By the time you’re an year into your relationship, problems problems problems. Women seem to handle the rough phase smoothly, but men are likely to feel intense loneliness. They seem to suffer more than their female counterparts.
When in a fight, we men, love to brag about how independent we are. We say it out loud to our girlfriends how better off we are without them, and can survive without them at any point in time. The old Indian adage “barking dogs never bite” holds true here. The truth is men are weak, let me tell you! … especially, the new urban creed of men, the Internet-savvy crowd, who sit 24/7 in front of their PCs doing nothing but watching porn and chatting on Yahoo! (I’m not judging anybody here.)
Females on the other hand are content with themselves most of the time. They take care of their work at office, take care of their children, the family etc etc etc .. and if by chance if anything goes wrong in their relationship, they seem to handle it a bit better than their husbands. My point : Women are much stronger than you think. They can find happiness one way or the other, and are constantly on the look for it knowingly or unknowingly.
I have a theory behind this whole ‘women being stronger’ thing. Now here’s a fact. Exploitation and injustice is something that’s been happening to this creed from times immemorial. It’s a common story for every women everywhere; they’ve been made to struggle and suffer for unethical reasons for a very very long period of time. I think that has made them stronger over the ages. They’re evolving altogether as a stronger gene. It’s genetic! The word STRONG is being scripted in their genes so that they could take on an unforgiving world that is today.
So, don’t feel bad if your girlfriend leaves you after a break-up, and you find her with another man the next day, and she acts as if nothing happened. It’s the gene thing! So you should probably just move on too, or rather next time when you plan for an unnecessary fight, think again! I may be wrong with whatever I’m saying here, but what the heck, I’ve postulated a theory here. I think I’m going to name it “The Strong Theory”. He he, funny me ! (Now, you must be thinking, “Argh, it’s such a waste time.” Go watch porn now you idiots!)
