I posted this many moons ago and it was quite popular, pre-Covid though so, who knows.
Who could resist that adorable puppy coming running toward them for attention? There ya have it. That’s the curse women are under with cute men.
I’ve interviewed women, and they agree. When a man is really cute, he’s very hard to resist! It’s terrible. We just want to love them up and feed them, make up a dog house, let them stay over, oh geez, on and on, and it does us in. There goes the peace we need as females and space to take care of ourselves and get our work done. We really need to learn to resist this instinct!
True to form, I learn something every day about women and men, our basic natures, and realized there were many things I was not taught growing up. Can you relate to that moment someone close to you said something off the cuff and it stuck in your head? That was the case for me with my second husband, Dave (my son’s father). He was walking up the stairs one day after a normal conversation, and he looked at me and said, “We’re like dogs. Men are like dogs”
Some men are fancy dogs, or rich dogs, or bad dogs, or good dogs, or work dogs. Some are both! Some are crazy dogs or funny dogs, sexy dogs, or sweet dogs. You get the idea.
If you read my blog regularly, you can guess I looked at him with disbelief and derision. In no way was I going to accept that as an excuse for his behavior. Nor had I ever entertained a career in dog training or dog breeding by letting a man live with me in what would be his dog house. I’ve never even owned a dog and don’t want to because I’m consistently told that they are like having another child! Plus I’m an independent cat woman.
Children need to be patted on the head and encouraged, praised with kind words, fed, loved, and kept warm and more. I already did that with my son. I don’t need to do that with a man or a dog. It’s a turn-off to me to think about treating a man like a dog. But now I’ve been mulling it over.
I can say with assurance that I have always worked toward and considered myself a goddess as opposed to dog food. In no way have I ever fed my body to a lusty man to be consumed because he’s hungry. I think most women do, though! They accept it! It does feel good, and women most definitely have the instinct to feed men, but it will kill your self-esteem and is not emotionally good for women.
On the other hand, men love those superheroes, and I know for a fact they have a rich fantasy life about what great warrior heroes and magical powers they might possess. There’s nothing a man loves more than seeing a woman look at him sincerely as her hero.
It’s not that a woman wants or needs to be rescued. We really don’t. But sometimes, we definitely do need protection in a very rough world. Sure, Iron Man to the scene! I’m good with that and Robert Downey Jr. is a major hottie.
A man who is a god can be recognized as truly wanting and respecting an intelligent woman who takes care of her own business. He takes care of his own business, so he isn’t bothering her like a little kid with her in the role of his mother. No thanks. He also takes care of his health and teeth, so he pleases her physically, and of course, she does the same. Most of all, he likes himself and has matured to the point of being able to listen and care about how a woman feels.
So I can honestly say I’ve decided I am looking for a man who knows he really IS a god, just as I know I am a goddess. It’s an awareness of the divinity within us; one with us and the goal of the spiritual movement. You won’t find it in religion, and I’m guessing they find it heretical. Spiritual people are not saying we are God. We’re saying that our identity is an ascending child of God, which is a god or goddess.
We’re working on ourselves to get better every day. Every single human being has this in them; in our blood, which is our QI, or consciousness. I’m not the goddess I want to be or know I can be yet, but I’m almost there, and it has nothing to do with age. That will be the subject of another blog.
