Manhood and the dismissive woman

Is it possible to tell a woman that sometimes she doesn’t have to find a solution nor she needs to mother, she just need to listen and allow the man just to express himself, his doubts, his weakness, his tiredness etc! Or men don’t have the right to do that?!

Women cheat out of anger, because they are scared, need attention or just can’t bear taking the decision to leave. Most men cheat out of their desperate search for a woman who listens, empathises and encourages the man to relieve his emotions rather than the empty words of stereotypical encouraging phrases like “you will be ok”, “be strong”, etc.

Manhood is not about being beastly hairy and smelly, and strong even if that what appeals to the animalistic female sexual instinct! Manhood is about …

Well perhaps we are so damaged by cultural stereotypes heritage and modern expectations, it is not easy even for a man to define what is manhood.

C’est la vie, ma chérie. C’est la vie, and what a life!
