By request: Differences between Men and Women

Ambre and Missy have both made similar topic suggestions, Ambre asks why men can't understand women and Missy inquired as to why men watch halftime of football games. These questions would lead one to believe that I can speak for all men! We haven't actually held an election recently and, frankly, none of us is sure who is in charge right now, but I'll do my best.

Here's my problem with the question(s), they are over-generalizations. All men don't like football. All women don't want roses on Valentines day. I know some women who think camping in a remote wilderness would be the ideal vacation. My wife doesn't travel anywhere there isn't room service. Besides the obvious physical differences (and I say "Vive la differance!) there are some emotional differences between the sexes. Science tells us our brains are wired a little differently and we percieve things on different levels.

Is this a question of understanding between sexes or should we look at it from the one on one perspective? I, for one, do not try to understand women as a group. I prefer to get to know an individual. I don't care to be judged in a group of millions and I doubt most women would like that either. It is possible that the attempt to understand a gender instead of the object of one's attentions is where the conflict lies...

Ouch! Football is the neo modern classic gladitorial battle pitting brawn against skill and brainpower! If you were sleepng under a fig leaf-I'd peek!

Thank you Ambre, I was going for some prose-not a nutshell!
