What we want

Sagnik asked me to sum up in one sentence ‘What women want’. I thought for a moment of all the things I could say and said ‘The same thing men want’.

Here’s why I think so. Men want:
Sex
Money
Power
Respect
Status
Friendship
Love
Fun
Security
Admiration

And here’s what women want:
To be seen as more than sex symbols. That’s Respect.
To be cared for and cherished. That’s Love.
To be seen as attractive. That’s Admiration.
To have mind-blowing orgasms. That’s Sex.
To be able to change whatever they like in their world. That’s Power.
To be able to buy everything they want. That’s Money.
To show that they can buy everything they want. That’s Status.
To not have to deal with annoying and scary uncertainity. That’s Security.
To feel understood, accepted and supported. That’s Friendship.
To read, write, paint, cook, sing, dance, watch TV, laugh, sniffle, giggle and cry. That’s Fun.

So our definitions differ, so some of us rank them differently from the way some of you do. Does a difference in our body plumbing necessarily make us that different? Get my drift, Mr.Nandy?
