What Women Want

It’s been millions of years since man stood straight, started a fire, invented the wheel and moved from stone to copper. And they still haven’t figured out what women want?? Seriously guys what’s wrong with you! She gave birth to you, nurtured you, cared for you. She is your mother, you sister, your daughter, your best friend, your wife - she completes you, your constant companion through your highs and lows, she makes your house a home.

Yes, she baffles you with her startling contradictions. Her softness caresses you yet she can wound you with her harsh words. Her love can move mountains, melt stony hearts but god forbid if she loathes you. She takes no pains to hide her feelings. She can scald you with her fieriness.


She is capable of driving you up the wall with her rant. Just let her be, she needs to vent it out. Please listen to her, try to understand her. No sermonising please, she hates it. She doesn’t expect you to solve her problems: no thank you, she is pretty much capable of taking care of it all by herself. Isn’t she the one who heads corporations, governs nations, toils at the construction site- a crusader, a healer, a home maker. She wears many a hat, it can be exhausting, it can get daunting, yet she comes back home to cook for you, to care for you. She is capable of forsaking her dreams, her career for the sake of her love. Yes, she craves for your affection, your respect. Make her laugh, indulge her when she loses her sanity on a shopping  trip. She can never have enough shoes or dresses. It makes her feel good, she loves a little pampering. Just pander to her whims once in a while. But don’t you dare take her for granted, trample upon her. She is not a conquest, a trophy for your success. She may look weak to many of you but it is she who is the wind beneath your wings, who shares your dreams and applauds your success.

All these years she has been asking what you want and you still don’t know what she wants?

Took ages to make up my mind, perhaps the last entry for the current BlogAdda, in association with Pring00 contest... http://blog.blogadda.com/2010/06/23/what-women-want-indian-bloggers-share

  2. Typical feminist rant from a girl.Not surprised.I would say,stop decieving as a girl.Be straightforward,there ends the mystery.By keeping onething on eyes,another thing on heart and talks diametrically opposite thing through words,girls aren't helping their cause at all.Well,if girls are such abled and self dependent,they should consider restraining from becoming girl friends and wives.On one side says,girls need pampering and on other side blames men for not understanding.If someone get a girl an apple,she will want an orange,if he get her an orange she will say,she wanted a grapes rather.lol.

  6. Very well-written Purba. I'd only like to add that a lot of what you've described here holds for men ..I mean... maybe the adjectives change but the soul remains the same :)

  9. Lazy Pineapple.. Oh dear,what you read was the rough draft with it's few typos. But thank you for your encouraging comment.

    Nithin.. Women do not have identical genes and similar mental disposition. I am sorry that you have met only the deceiving, conniving types. And it's not just women who crave for indulgence :)

    Nethra...The contest is incidental, the topic was very intriguing. Had to write about it. And thank you for your best wishes

    Prateek.. Thanks

  10. Did I manage to scare you Satyakam?

    Madhusudhan...That thinking cap refuses to come off. We think too much, fret too much and worry on behalf of the rest of humanity.

    Satyakam..Read your post and left a comment :)

  15. what women want and what men want is an over-worked issue. At the end of the day, women or men wants love and to be loved, self-respect and acknowledgment ;)

  16. nice post Purba..a near perfect description of what wealthy, urban women want.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Lakshmi, Absolutely... love and understanding is what we all want

    Rajashree.. LOL.. O dear I forgot the other half.

  18. We sure as hell can never figure out what women want but you know what men want from women,as Seinfield put it " Men want the same thing from women that they want from their underwear: a little bit of support, and a little bit of freedom." :p

  19. And guess what, my next post is on smart underwear :))

  20. what women want is...... a bit of support and a lot of respect for whatever she has to go through physically and mentally to make life comfortable for her family members.

  21. After reading the complete post, I was left with the feeling...What else would women want?

    ReplyDelete
  22. Renu...Couldn't agree with you more

    Joshi...Women want just one thing.........everything!!!

    ReplyDelete
  23. One, you made me look for the meaning of 'scald'! grrrr!

    Two, How I wish all this was true. All i know is that you are the most unpredictable species on earth!

    Yes, I don't know what women want even after reading this post. :D

  24. Aww no..scalding hot?
    As if men are any better. You never come to know what's going on in that head of theirs.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Agreed. We men do not know what women want but all women know what men want. Still men have to beg/borrow/steal. We are a intelligent thus complex of species. If men and women know what their opposites want then their will be no end to negotiations. Life will be more complex and the issue will not be what they want but how to settle for what both want. Sometime no settlement at all. Will that be any better scenario?

Psst... let me know what you are thinking.
