Public Service Message

Its been awhile since I last posted, and its definitely not for lack of things to talk about.  If anything, there's been too much.  I have a lot of stories to tell but I'm seeing an overall theme.  So instead of venting each story, I'd just like to take a page from early 2000's Christina Aguilera and write a little about what a girl wants.  Men, pay attention.

We want a guy with a plan.  He needs to be able to take charge, to be a leader.  All we see on TV these days are male figures who are little more than boys trapped in the bodies of men.  They're comically inept, and woefully unable to cope in the real world without their wives acting like their surrogate mothers.  

Do we want to be controlled or dominated? No.  But we do want you to make decisions.  There's nothing lamer than someone saying "Would you like to go out Friday night? Yes? Okay, awesome.  What do you want to do?"  If you can't even pick a restaurant or decide on a movie, how am I supposed to believe you're going to be able to make decisions about anything important?

I'm not sure why this started happening.  I guess guys feel like they're being nice and showing respect when they want my input on every minute detail of the date.  Don't take this out of context, either.  Just because women like a man who can make decisions doesn't mean you should go home and announce to your wife that you're moving the family to South Korea.  Big decisions should be discussed, obviously.  But there's something undeniably sexy about a guy who can say, after I've consented to go out with him,  "We'll be eating at PF Chang's and then we'll be catching a movie.  Be ready at six."  

If I have to play the 'I don't care. What do you want to do?' game one more time I might scream.

I'll get off my little soap box now.  I just really needed to get that off my chest.
