I don't want, nor could ever accept being wanted on the condition that I'm needed. I want and could only accept being needed on the condition that I'm wanted.




Ok... off my Carry on!

I agree, Victor! I used to say that to a former boyfriend all the time.

A little story - not important - but the postings made me think about it...

A neighbor's cousin came to clear out her house and bring all of her things back to one of the Carolinas for her. He wanted to move her closer to him. After three days of sorting, packing and lifting, he told me that not one man on the street came over to help him. They stopped by to chat or tell him what they thought he should do with this or that, but not one muscle or hand was offered to him. Conversely, every female neighbor came by to help him with something (sorting, packing, lifting and/or moving). Of course, this was southern California, and we're a little more independent here. He said that if he had been back home at least five men would have showed up to help him - probably different ones on each day.

What's a girl to do? I often offer to help my neighbors, but not vice versa. So, I hire a handyman. Chelle

Case in point. My little sister is very handy- has built fences, a carport, a huge deck , put in sky lights and goodness know what else. She has a tool belt, hard hats, electric saws and loads of other tools. I must say that she has never had any difficulty with having boyfriends or male friends. She's a tiny thing and there are always guy friends who show up to help her out on her various projects; and she is definitely feminine.

I guess it's just me, but why have all this, to me, this is a woman dressed up as a guy! Would you women want to see me in a dress doing house chores??!!, no!!! of course not! Then why must you do it!?? Again, maybe it's just me, but I'm wired differently, I like to be a man, and not a crossdressser. laughing laughing

If he asked today, I would really have to restrain myself from doing just that -- he is not only a self-absorbed womenizer, he likes 'em young, like children.
