I really liked this article by Paul Thomas Bell. He’s not only a polished writer, but a hell of a lot better than me at being able to articulate his thoughts on paper, and very concisely too I might add.
So I like it and especially Paul’s franc honesty, particularly the bit about the porkie pies men tend to tell, to avoid hurting our feelings; or when they say what they think we want to hear. It’s frustratingly true, but nice to see all this coming from a man.
Anyway, thanks Paul. It’s a pleasurable read, that’s quick too: and who knows, it might even debunk some of those myths about men for at least some of us women out there 🙂
Being a guy, who knows guys, I unfortunately am all too familiar with some of man’s great failings when it comes to women. I could never claim to have been a perfect boyfriend but every now and again friends, colleagues and often complete strangers will share their stories with me and as much as I am happy to listen occassionally my head falls into my hands with regrettable ease. I could never judge anyone, way too many mistakes made on my part, but are all the negative myths about men actually true? Or perhaps they are just that – myths.
