Random XXFactor 55s

Men like teaching me stuff,
Educating me on how it all is
Sometimes things I already know
Occasionally better than them.

You never told me that!!

You never asked, dearie. And believe it or not, I am a good listener.

The odd thing is, no man likes hearing that. But they do enjoy being heard.


It’s a matter of focus, not straightforwardness
Having started on one thing,
It probably feels like a waste to not complete it

Maybe they wish the ‘Pause’ button worked in real life too
But instead, find that
Channel-surfing eventually leads back to the same place
With the shows still on
And just a different face


Actually I like most men
And care not a whit for women

But I respect women
Mostly a lot
For very little
And am scornful of men
A lot
For very little

I think men are okay, if you don’t let yourself feel too much
And women are spectacular if you don’t think at all.

  2. And while I don’t necessarily feel that way, (my best friend is a guy) it is, still, a rather straightforward (amusingly so) quote..
