A reader (thanks Roger) sent me a link to a href=”http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/13231665/”this article /aabout a new book entitled, a href=”http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/redirect?link_code=as2path=ASIN/074327637Xtag=wwwviolentkicomcamp=1789creative=9325″Why Men Marry Bitches : A Woman’s Guide to Winning Her Man’s Heart./aimg src=”http://www.assoc-amazon.com/e/ir?t=wwwviolentkicoml=as2o=1a=074327637X” width=”1″ height=”1″ border=”0″ alt=”” style=”border:none !important; margin:0px !important;” / Although I do not care for the title of this book, the kooky part of this author’s theme seems to be that there are few confident women (why does this make one a bitch?) but scores of martyrish women floating around just dying to cater to a man’s every whim and desire:br /br /blockquoteAs scary as it sounds, this is precisely the approach women are taught on how to catch a husband. It’s the plight of every “nice girl” who puts everyone else first, puts her own needs last, and doesn’t think she is worthy of touching the hemline of her man’s pants….br /br /When I polled men, they all said confident women are in very short supply. And that a confident woman is what they find sexiest. Is it any wonder that confident women are hard to come by? Look around. The average fashion magazine tells women to act like a servant, as if dating were a labor-intensive, blue-collar-job application: “Can you serve a cold beer in trashy lingerie? Do you leave razor-sharp creases in his shirts like employee-of-the-month at the Jolly Roger motel? Do you wear cellophane for him? Are you gardening in stilettos? Are you giving it up doggie-style? If so, he’ll drop to one knee and propose …” /blockquotebr /br /Apparently, the author of this tall tale seems to think that women who cater to a man’s every need and do everything a man tells them to do are the norm. Does anyone out there even know of such a woman who really truly puts everyone else’s needs before her own, brings a guy beer in lingerie and does not think she is worthy of touching the hemline of her man’s pants? Honestly, I don’t and have never met a woman like that. Maybe I just travel in odd circles. Seriously, does anyone have a story or experience of a woman (a real one) who is still involved in this type of behavior? Because, if so, I have a number of men who are just dying to meet these women. I think that if they actually existed, they have been extinct now since the 1950’s. I suspect that women being “too nice” is hardly the reason more men are not dying to get married.br /br /Update: Eden at a href=”http://www.justonebite.com/index.php/j1b/til-i-get-a-wedding-vow/”Just One Bite /a has some thoughts on this post that make sense.
