Stupid Cupid? Relationships

Relationships can take a lifetime to build and a moment to break. The most complicated of these relationships but essential is that of a man and a woman. So why is it something that we can’t live without?

It’s a basic human need that many try to fight off. Singletons will say, “I like being on my own, no one to cook for, no one hogging the bathroom in the morning, no one taking up the entire sofa, no one fidgeting annoyingly because you are watching a movie they hate”. But you have no one! No one to share the sofa with, no one to cry or laugh with when you are watching a movie, no one to share a bath with and no one to tell you that you make a mean spag bol!

Does the love of your life truly exist? I believe he or she is out there, even though at times, I have my doubts. I wonder what it feels like to meet someone who feels sure about you. No more game playing or passing the time, the text you send and check your phone every minute for a reply, you comment on their Facebook status and stare at the blue and white screen hoping that they will say something back. Women reply to everything, men are more likely to hold back. A hint perhaps, that they are keeping their distance for a reason.

You won’t know what that reason is you’ll just have to guess (maybe you already know the answer) Us women, we get such a buzz from male attention.; you remove every bit of unwanted hair just in case, lose a few pounds from the butterflies in your stomach, a spring in your step that a 100 meter runner can only dream of and become all giggly with a glint in your eye that says…here I am!! Pupils dilate and the twirling of your hair with newly manicured fingers is a giveaway; you’re not even aware of what you are doing.

Human behaviour; psychologists, doctors and Professor Robert Winston have spent years studying our emotions, signals and actions. Respected members of the medical profession, dedicated in their pursuit of understanding Adam and Eve. American comedian, author and writer George Carlin saw things from a different perspective.

“Here’s all you have to know about men and women: women are crazy, men are stupid. And the main reason women are crazy is that men are stupid.” – George Carlin

Agree or disagree, that’s your choice. No one is wrong but someone will come along and be right.
