A Man's View of Women

I am an electrical engineer by training and like to think of myself as well versed in how people in general act and work together. Recently, as a male I have observed something about women that I have never been able to completely explain, but always wanted to write about. This is not a sexist thing, just some observations as to why as men we are perplexed and ever so curious about women.

Women have no respect for logic; they can openly disagree with themselves and still be right; they can carry on complex relationships with us, with or without our participation; there is nothing in the world more fragile than an unbreakable woman, or more inflexible than a woman who does not know what she really wants; they are born able to read minds and will always find our inability to do so as a member of the opposite sex a disappointment; women will dream, wax and wane indeterminately about the absolute perfect male companion, boyfriend or husband and almost without fail choose the absolutely wrong guy initially and then ask “what went wrong?” when it does not work out; they will also see a mistake they make as a learning experience and can easily explain away any foible or as a woman’s prerogative; and finally, women are a contradiction in terms. This is a statement that does not make sense, no matter how hard we try to figure it out, and it is also one that goes a long way in explaining why women are all so glorious, mysterious, wondrous, and beautiful and why we cannot stop (why we should not ever want to stop) falling in love with them, even at our peril.

To any women out there that are offended, I am sorry, I mean no disrespect and actually like women in general and in a very few and rare cases, loved personally as well.
