Matters of Confusion

Men confuse me.

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.

Not fair.

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.

It's torture.

But it hurts so good.
