Matters of Confusion
I really don't need to go any further than that for the women of the world to understand, but I will.
Men don't realize what a simple statement like "for the rest of our lives" can do to a woman.
And that's not fair.
Because for us women (or most of us at least) those words from a man's mouth get us all twitterpated and smiley.
For a man, it's just a phrase in the English dictionary that may or may not equate to a long period of time.
Oh, and other not fair things.....when they just happen to let you know they fall into a category or two that happen to be weaknesses (of which they know).
I really shouldn't be thinking about these things, let alone over-thinking them as I am, because last I checked I was still single.
And a single woman shouldn't be getting warm-fuzzies from simple statements that lead to such mental anguish and confusion.
It's not fair.
But it hurts so good.
