|My favorite spot these days|
I would just like to preface this post by saying that my intentions are not to devalue men or women in their mid-twenties to early thirties, but to simply express some current observations and thoughts.
Lately my girlfriends and I have been discussing relationships, both old and current and I feel that many women in their twenties feel jaded towards men. I cannot speak for men, maybe they too feel jaded towards women. I have taken a slight noticing that many men do not seem to mature or as we, the women say, "grow up." I would hate to say this is only one gender, I am just speaking from a woman's point of view. It could possibly be that there are two extremes of people once we reach a certain post-adolescent age. One group being the group of individuals with mature thoughts, those that understand and acknowledge how to interact with the opposite sex fully. Courtship, dating, and not afraid of being "real" with other people. Providing clarity, communicating, and being courteous. If you are not interested in talking to someone anymore, tell them that. If you are not interested in dating someone, communicate that. If you are interested in someone, communicate your intentions to them. As humans, we (both sexes), want to understand the causes and effects of our interpersonal relationships. It is becoming more and more socially acceptable to simply allow ourselves to be ignored and to accept that and with time to let it go. I think this stems from a fear of rejection, both of rejecting someone else or of being the receiver of rejection. Easier said than done, right?
Thoughts on the above?
On a less serious note, here are some happenings from my week:
