What Do Women Think Men Really Want?
What is it that men are looking for in women? What do men value above all else or is his lascivious and outward gawking to be percieved as true and credible evidence in the choosing of a mate.
What do women think men are looking for and how do women accommodate and encourage that perception?
It may well be argued that a great personality will sustain a man long after beauty and youth have had their day, but, does a great personality, grip the interest of the great Neanderthal?
Ever have someone try and hook you up? Men are wary of the proverbial, “she has a great personality”. Such a tantalizing endorsement is an instant death sentence to miss congeniality. Obviously, woman agrees with the hunter gatherer's great genius for esteeming the beauty of her parts above the sustainability of a her "great personality" for she has gone to great expense in order to encourage his gawking.
In the United States alone, there were 351,000 surgeries for breast augmentation in 2007. Another 105,000 breast lift and 107,000 breast reductions. There were 149,000 tummy tucks and 4400 butt improvements. There were 9,000 lower body lifts, 14,000 upper arms lifts 43,000 forehead lifts, 8900 thigh lifts and 2600 lip lifts, 118,000 face lifts and zero, not one, personality lift, no personality augmentations, no personality injections and no personality enhancements. Apparently, "a great personality" just isn't on the list of desired attributes appreciated by the great Neanderthal.
What might one conclude from the implications of these salacious and whispering statistics?
1) Obviously, as a nation we are obsessed with lifting, which begs the question, how did obesity become such a problem with all this lifting going on?
2) Evidently, as a nation we are obsessed with lifting breast more than personality, which again begs the question, who or what are men really talking to?
In 2007 there were 4,625,000 botox injections, none of which were directly or indirectly targeted at personality improvements. Apparently, such injections are intended to persuade his ears to respond to where the sound is actually coming from without his eyes being inadvertently diverted. These attempts have been grossly unsuccessful for the improvements to one's breast solicit his attention considerably more than a robot face.
Because man has failed to escape the evolutionary conduct imprisoned by his prehistoric appetite should not be held against him. Rather, he should be excused as one who is simply following the bait put before him or heralded as one who simply appreciates the provocative silence of southern belles, rather than the promised charm of a "a great personality". It has become painfully clear that “a great personality” is an ambiguous notion or at the very least, the hunter/gatherer is better equipped to gather from what he sees more than from what he hears. Such conclusion lends evidence to the notion that his appetite is indeed, his first and primary concern.
Sometimes, under the weight of her invisible personality, woman can barely stand erect. The roving eyes of the great Neanderthal sacrifice themselves in expected appreciation of what she is obviously, demanding. He is after all, by instinct, predisposed to the gathering of what ever nourishment is offered to his senses. He is visually brought to attention. If by chance our neanderthal can not see, not to worry! There is always the strategically appointed, perfumed dab, aromatically drawing his nose from the tower of Babel to the cavern of conspiracy.
Apparently, if man should inadvertently catch her eye instead, she simply leads his ignorance via "the lean" which without intent, reveals her non intent, intentionally.
That we, as a society, place so little esteem on “the great personality” is not by any means, the intentional fault of man. It is certainly not his rising interest in the economic vitality of plastic, silicone and petroleum products. It is woman who has directed his interest from intellect or charm or personality, to ever increasing mounds of frivolity, which in turn, simply fortify and insure his prehistoric bondage.
In a culture where the majority of our deepest conversation is stimulated by the inflated ego of Double D Cups, it is easy to understand why we men remain Neanderthals. By the number of breast augmentations, butt lifts and botox injections, I'm convinced that women don't want us Neanderthals to change at all. Why would man look for a personality when women go to such expense to insure that his primitive intellect does not rise above a primordial attachment to things that "go bump in the night"?
If woman would sincerely like to be appreciated for her mind and personality, perhaps she would do well to appreciate such elegance within herself first. To elicit self esteem proportionate to the size of any cup, seems in itself, a bit Neanderthal. If she herself desires more attention be directed to personality and intellect, then why does she labor and manipulate his attention in the direction of such an inflated curriculum? After all, the Neanderthal has served notice countless times that his indiscriminate appetite will revel in whatever is heaped upon his empty plate. Over half a million breast surgeries a year indicates that someone isn't serving him from the four major food groups.
We Neanderthals are rummaging around at the bottom of the food chain and someone is spending a lot of money to keep us there. To add to the absurdity of such manipulation, the offense is compounded by redirecting the fault upon his simple mind.
" Is that all you think about" they ask?
Women stimulate the U.S. economy to the tune of 4 billion dollars a year to make sure we think exactly how they want us to think.
"The great personality" is in more jeopardy today than ever. It is near extinction and I suspect, soon to be place on the endangered species list. It is being submerged beneath mounds of primordial gel and suffocating beneath the weight of plastic mastodons.
If the great Neanderthal is to evolve from the primordial soup then intellect and personality should be respected, prized and flaunted more than the leans and mounds demanding our primitive attention.
Admittedly, beauty does illicit an immediate notice and admittedly it fuels the requisite attraction necessary to stimulate his barbaric interest, but, it should remain simply that: a means to introduction. Somewhere along the way, the Neanderthal is going to realize that the gelatin zombies contribute little to meaningful conversation, at which point, the absence or presence of great personality will determine the possibility of meaningful relationship. Beauty may well accommodate a provocative means, but, in the end, the great Neanderthal will prove that he is less Neanderthal than anyone suspected.
