So yes, he does feel?

I underestimate the depth of men’s emotions.

Spoke to someone I’ve known for a long time, recently…after awhile. Our last interaction was interesting but in line with my most recent defense mechanism I decided to do as I thought he would and filed it away as ‘nothing of consequence’. Now, years later he remembers and seems appalled that I haven’t given it more importance.

Ugh. I may be more intense one but there’s something to be depth of emotion. Very different things. So the old adage is true after all. Women are more expressive and hence able to ‘get it out of their systems’ faster than men. Read an article somewhere that implied that this was healthy as well since women who repressed their expression were prone to high-level health disorders, while men weren’t.

So I reserve the right to my tantrums and mood swings.  But I stand corrected as regards the authenticity of male emotions.

Oh deyaam…what happens to my male-bashing then, and what of this blog? 😉

  1. ha ha warned you, all men are not alike 😀
    but dont worry about bashing, we will make sure we leave some room for it 🙂

  2. I think I know where this one is coming from. I think its to do with the ego, a bit. However little time might have been spent together, they would want to believe it was awesome, and hence unforgettable, and therefore the difference in perception regarding the same memories.
    There, men and their egos.

  3. @ Rambler: Waiting with bated breath, is that a promise? 😀

    @ Dreamcatcher: Actually I was very surprised by the man in this situation. Let’s face it…they actually do have emotions too!!
