If you won't post it, then I will!

So I submitted this little blog entry, article thingy, whatever you want to call it to this woman who has a site devoted to giving men advice about women. Ok...stop rolling your eyes...I know the idea of ME giving advice to MEN is a bit hard to wrap your brain around, but hey...a gig is a gig, and she was paying 20 bucks a post.

I wrote a little ditty, and she ignored it; is that better than rejection? No news is good news? What the hell...I'm not getting my 20 bucks. However, I read it to a couple of friends, and they liked it, so I'm putting it here. Why the hell not? I'll pay myself. Here ya go...twenty bucks...knock yourself out!
If you're a guy reading this, and you want a little insight into a woman's've come to the wrong place...tee hee hee. Hey, I have no idea what women want or what men want or what I want half the time...but here's my two cents worth....or rather, my $20 worth. At the very least, maybe you'll get a little chuckle out of it. Enjoy! I'm gonna take myself out to lunch with my twenty bucks!

Fickle Women

Feminists may hate me after this, but I don’t feel like I’m telling you anything you don’t already know. Women are fickle. There! I said it. If this is a shocking revelation then you must not get out much. But as a woman, and in my experience with other women, we are a fickle bunch.

You have to know that it’s not deliberate. Flip-flopping like that—changing our minds from one minute to the next. It must be part of our genetic makeup. I never thought that I was a fickle gal; I always thought I was above all that. I wanted to think I was not your average girl and definitely not a game-player. I shoot from the hip and tell you what is really going on in my head. But truth be told, being in the dating pool has brought out the “fickle” in me. So, I realized, sadly, that I was like a lot of other women out there. Damn…I really thought I was different. Ah well.

So, you may be asking yourself, what can you do with this information if the girl of your dreams can’t make up her mind? Well, I say, you should call her on it. But not in a mean way. And I know guys hate confrontation, but you shouldn’t let her get away with her wishy-washy ways. Make her make a decision. I kinda like it when a guy does that. When he puts his foot down and says, “Enough is enough! You either like me or you don’t…stop stringing me along.”

But if you take this advice, be prepared for the answer. If she says “thanks, but no thanks,” you’d better be ready for the rejection. In the end, don’t you want to know? If there really is something between you, you’ll both know it and she’ll probably respect you for calling her on her fickle ways. Then you can move on to the next step, whatever that may be. If she says goodbye, then move on. She wasn’t the right one for you anyway.

Remember that fickle women require patience and kindness. Be firm, but be gentle. I can’t really give you an explanation as to why women are fickle, but knowing that we have that tendency may help to prepare you for her change of heart. If she’s the right one for you, she’ll come around. And whatever happens, have faith that it will work out for the best in the end.

Some very interesting thoughts. I still don't have women figured out, but this article gave me some additional insight. Maybe I will figure them out some day. Then again, maybe women think I am the one who is fickle. What you see depends on where you stand when you look at it. -- Mike B.
