My homeboy asked the question "Why don't men understand women?"... He went on to say he doesn't even think WOMEN understand women...Here is my response: "Men and WOMEN not understanding women:I think it fundamentally goes back to women not understanding men. Men tend to understand other men rather easily, because the relationships between men are not that complex. Men look at each other and understand the different archetypes. We can pick up certain behaviors and know right away, (that's a bitch n*gga, don't trust him), or (that's a cool dude, I can f*ck with him), (he's straight but selfish, associate), etc… All we want are friends we can relate to, hit up and talk about things we have in common with or do things we mutually enjoy.With women this takes on a whole new life, which goes into why women are insecure in a world full of compliments. For one, with women the playing field is a bit more even. How much value does a compliment hold when it can and most likely has been given to several women within the same proximity. And what do men do to substantiate such compliments? We all know 'that dude' that may meet a woman at a club, have a conversation with her and her friends, tell her how beautiful she is and how much of a good conversationalist she is, but end up trying to leave with a less enchanting homegirl because she had a few more drinks and seemed more willing to 'give it up' that same night. What did all the conversing and compliments truly mean in the end? When we go on to tell a woman how beautiful and intelligent she is, how good her cooking is, what a great mother she is or will be, then we go out and sleep with other women who aren't deserving of those same compliments, it devalues those compliments. Now a woman is left feeling like even tho she was lead to believe she was perfect it still wasn't enough to protect her from heart break and hurt. It wasn't enough to keep her man. Women naturally start to believe that there must be something wrong with them. They hardly ever realize it's us, that we have the problem.
