Together but apart, like both sides of a coin

After many years of trying, I unashamedly confess to knowing very little about women.

Men and women are different and neither is better or worse than the other, obviously. Just like Fire and Water, Night and Day, Hot and Cold, both are necessary for life and both have the capacity to be good and bad.

Our Universe is made up of opposites; light and darkness, matter and anti-matter, pull and push forces and of course male and female.

It is amazing that men and women share 99.9 of common DNA (not so amazing when compared to 95% shared DNA with chimps) and yet are so intrinsically different in both thought and intention.

Differences between the sexes are so extreme it beggars belief to think that both were made in the same biological “laboratory” and with the same reproductive “chemical cocktail”.

Of course men and women  share many similarities, like for instance; morals, nurturing instinct, appreciation of arts and music, thirst for knowledge, empathy and the need to love and be loved, to name but a few. That makes it even more incredible on how men and women can be so different!

The point I’m trying to get to (not so sure now) is how difficult it seems to be, to please both sexes simultaneously. When it comes to;

TV World: Tries hard but fails miserably, ensuring a couple ( um… I refer to 2 people cohabiting, male-female, the whole point of this exercise) have to own two television sets in order to share the same living space without killing each other.

Movie World: “Sex in The City” for her, the “A Team” for him. The only couples who usually persevere to see these films together are ‘just dating’ and will do anything to impress each other.

Sports World: Gymnastics (floor exercise) for her, Cage Fighting MMA and Football for him.

Alcoholic Beverages: “Cosmopolitans” and Vodka Red-Bull for her, Cold beer for him...

...this could go on forever and ever.

If anyone out there has any idea on what makes men and women so different, please let me know. I would appreciate it. One is never too old to learn and no,I won't hold my breath.

Anyway, the following is a joke for the girls;

“The problem is that Nature gave men a brain and a penis, and only enough blood to run one at a time.”

And one for the boys;

"A woman's mind is cleaner than a man's. She changes it more often."

On a more serious note I would like to finish off with the wise words of Albert Einstein, probably the greatest thinker of the century;

“Men marry women with the hope they will never change. Women marry men with the hope they will change. Invariably they are both disappointed.”

Wow, meaningful or what?   Vive la difference!


  1. after watching crimewatch last night I would have thought you would "admit" that women obviously is the weaker sex. cause c'mon - no man would never tell a stranger where the code for his credit card is. or even invite him in for a cup of tea in the first place :P

    he he.



  2. And also Joe, i'm quite certain i've seen you downing 1 or 4 vodka redbulls in the past ;) Im guessing thats you bonding with your female side?! ;P
