    Are women really as hard to understand as men make them out to be?

    Men seem to understand women about as much as my daughter, who's in preschool, understands calculus! Are women really that hard to figure out? Do they do just pretend to be complicated, to mess with our heads? Is it possible that they are every bit as simple minded as men... only men can't see it because they don't pay enough attention?
    I mean, what's the real deal here ladies? Throw a man a steak here. A nice meaty one full of answers! Consider it the same as when you have to give your dog a pill. The only way they will consume it and get the full affects, is if you hide it in their food!

    I'm not sure if most women really are complicated and I'm just abnormal, or if men assume that women will be complicated and are constantly searching for the REAL meaning behind what they do or say. This has been an ongoing battle between me and my husband -- no matter how many times I ask him for his honest opinion, he still tries his best to give me the answer he thinks I want to hear.

    Woman are not that complicated, all we really want is someone that loves us and loves us unconditionally, no matter what our bodies look like, when our hair is nice when it is messed up.  We want you to love us that once in awhile you spend as much time with us as you do your friends.  We do not want to be the only air that you breathe but we want to be on the top.  We want a man who will really listen to us and what we are saying, not one that nods his head while watching tv and ignoring us. 

    The other thing that I notice is that after the "lust" session is over the romance dies and we get all settled and comfortable with each other and quit doing the little things that we to show each other how much we mean, a simple rose, a simple note or card, a love note in the mirror, in the car, help with the chores around the house so that one does not feel like she is doing everything all of the time. 

    Simply put, all a girl wants is love and respect and to shown that she is appreciated.

    I don't know if women are complicated, but we are definitely confusing.

    Our emotions are often inconsistent for external reasons that typically don't involve the person we're taking those emotions out on. I guess I don't speak for all women, or really, any woman besides myself, but I don't understand most of the things I do or why I do them. I typically go with what feels right over reason. My intuition is more important to me than my reasoning skills. I've heard that's the case with a lot of women. I think if you are trying to figure us out using logic, we will probably seem very complicated.

    Like I said, I've heard that's the case with a lot of women, but there are always exceptions.

    I think it depends on the woman and the man doing the figuring...
