Joseph Campbell claimed that in “relationship,” woman
is the initiator, with man coming in close to the woman to be initiated
into the deeper secrets of life and of love. He was right... guys
are for the most part clueless about such things... although a few
of us do try...
the popular book series claims: Men Are From Mars, Women Are
From Venus. I recently came across a slightly different take
on this: Men are Clams, Women Are Crowbars.
guys are guys are guys... and, like it or not, we are never
going to be you...
Kinds of Guys
Granted... as astrology (and life) attempts to teach us... there
are many different kinds of guys:
jock guys, geek guys, nerd guys, sensitive guys, quiet guys, loud
guys, dark and mysterious guys, dangerous guys, daredevil guys,
clown guys, soft guys, hard guys, serious guys, solid guys, wise
guys, laid back guys, on the go guys, clean freak guys, slob guys,
spiritual guys, and there are even a few strange "don't watch
sports on TV" guys... (Tip: keep a watchful
eye on the "don't watch sports on TV" guys. They're
the guys most likely to be serial killers.)
(unlike you) we guys really aren't all that complicated or complex
in what we want and/or need... most of us guys are a combination
of two or more of the above guys.
down deep, remove the veneer... and all of us guys are just guys.
State of Mind - What Are You Thinking About?
And yes, ladies... much (or most) of the time, when you ask us,
we really aren't thinking about
you happen to believe what spiritual guru Eckhart
Tolle has to say on the matter of creating empty spaces in our
minds in order to be more "conscious," then this lack
of thought potentially makes us guys very spiritual... as we are
easily able to create lots and lots of "inner-space."
We, guys, live much of our lives (at least while at relaxing at
home) in a constant state of Zen satori (a blissful moment
of "no mind").
Harvey and the big O
You likely saw Steve Harvey on the Oprah Show hawking his
popular book, Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man?
Harvey's book (and wisdom) is simplistic, and I can't bring myself
to go along with a lot he has to say, some parts are dead on. For
example there's something crucially important that Harvey has to
say (that I've been preaching about for years):
says four little words can strike fear and dread into any
man: We need to talk. "You just drove
a nail in his forehead," Harvey says.
are fixers, not talkers, Harvey says, so it's better to get
to the point. "When you say, 'We need to talk,' we put
up the barriers," he says. "I tell ladies, just
sit down and strike up a conversation." CNN
ladies! Ahem! This is, in fact, what originally sparked off
my desire to write this article on guys! So... if you choose
to take nothing else away from this disgusting, insensitive,
"guy article" - then please tattoo this one thing
to your forehead (figuratively speaking)...
attempting to talk to your guy about something that you consider
to be of a "serious" and/or "critical"
nature... never, never, never
start off the conversation by saying: "We need to talk."
(Related article: Get A Clue!)
you do start off the conversation by saying: "We need to
talk." ... then I can guarantee you that you're not going
to get what you wanted... due to thousands of years of evolution,
men tend to establish intimacy in ways very differently than
you do. You honestly think you're creating the conditions necessary
to establish intimacy with that man. You're not. You're not.
Guys are guys are guys... and we will always be guys...
And (if you're lucky) we will never be (complicated)
you, and we will never be the romantic (illusory Neptune
fantasy) hunky guy starring in your favorite soap opera.
we can temporarily, from time to time, pull it off for you...
but we are simply guys...
chances are that, once you put a few more miles on your life
experience odometer, you'll likely discover you never really
wanted us to be you, anyway.
