    One Flaw In Women

    Women have strengths that amaze men.

    They bear hardships and they carry burdens,

    but they hold happiness, love and joy.

    They smile when they want to scream.

    They sing when they want to cry.

    They cry when they are happy

    and laugh when they are nervous.

    They fight for what they believe in.

    They stand up to injustice.

    They don't take "no" for an answer

    when they believe there is a better solution.

    They go without so their family can have.

    They go to the doctor with a frightened friend.

    They love unconditionally.

    They cry when their children excel

    and cheer when their friends get awards.

    They are happy when they hear about

    a birth or a wedding.

    Their hearts break when a friend dies.

    They grieve at the loss of a family member,

    yet they are strong when they

    think there is no strength left.

    They know that a hug and a kiss

    can heal a broken heart.

    Women come in all shapes, sizes and colors.

    They'll drive, fly, walk, run or e-mail you

    to show how much they care about you.

    The heart of a woman is what

    makes the world keep turning.

    They bring joy, hope and love.

    They have compassion and ideas.

    They give moral support to their

    family and friends.

    Women have vital things to say

    and everything to give.

    HOWEVER, IF THERE IS ONE FLAW IN WOMEN,

    IT IS THAT THEY FORGET THEIR WORTH.



    Please pass this along to all your women friends and relatives to remind them just how amazing they are.

    Dear Altruisiticman...If you take the following 2 phrases out of the above then it would be completely and acceptably apply to any MAN!

    "They cry when they are happy and laugh when they are nervous." If a man did this, he would be considered weak and a sissy.

    "They cry when their children excel" Same would apply here. Instead it would be acceptable for a man to cheer and hug or pat his children on the back commending them for a job well done! But not to cry...sign of weakness in a man in this situation...not all situations. A loss of a loved-one would be perfectly acceptable for a man to cry.
    That's the World wide most popular perception in society I believe.

    I know, but it's unfair because men have as much a right as women do to express their emotions. I personally don't cry at funerals but I Cried at my son's graduations. Which is my entitlement because I made a lot of sacrifices both professional and personal to get him to that point. Besides that I learned that if I want him to be a true man he has to learn it from me. A true man makes his own choices. He doesn't feel too ashamed to love his woman or his children. Children crave a fathers love and affection as much as if not more than they do a mother's, and they don't lose respect for you but love you more for making them feel secure. Everytime my son has a performance, a victorious competition or an awards ceremony my eyes well up with tears of joy, because I realize what a blessing it is to still have my son and to be proud of his development. My son almost died at birth and God spared his life so that I may have an opportunity to make my contribution to society. Not only will my son raise his own children but he will treat his women well and teach his sons the same principles. Is it unmanly for a man to express pride in the fact that his seed isn't just another negative statistic?


    You raise a good point, which made me envision male friends whom might do the same as yourself at their son's graduation. Knowing them, I wouldn't think of them as whimps, but as caring men and an excellent father. Considering that, my previous post would be partially wrong. Society today has probably evolved to the point of not stereotyping a male who shows such emotion when feeling prideful of their children. But there will always be those people who see it as a sign of weakness, not compassion. I can only say what friends sometimes tell me..."Life isn't always fair." :-)

    Such a man would be a real man in my books!

    Couldn't agree more. In fact, those male friends of mine who display the characterics described are often men who have great, long standing relationships, whether it be with their buddies, female co-workers, family and certainly to me is an indicator of how they treat that woman in their life.

    I would hope that everyone - male or female - who has these characteristics -understands the value of them and how that makes them a truly good person.

    Tru-sweetheart ... a real man is one who can read what Ecam posted and has the strength of character and sense of self worth himself to agree with it. THAT's a REAL man, to me .... and THAT's the kind of masculine, hunky studmuffin I'm looking for. If a man loves women enough to think that way, and has the cajones to admit it to all, then he is undoubtedly a supreme lover as well.

    Yum......
