A colleague and I were talking yesterday, and among other things she was going on and on with pride about how all her friends say they love how she’s so bold, and sassy, and speaks her mind.
After she finally finished, I simply replied, “Yeah, but guys don’t like it.”
The look of shock on her face was priceless, and the idea that her behavior was working against her with men was obviously something she had never considered.
Finally, she stuttered something about how no guy had ever said anything like that. A brave man in the midst offered, “Why would they when they could just withdraw?”
And then the pink elephant in the room was suddenly highly visible. Because what does this gal complain about most in her marriage? That her husband is “checked out.” Yep.
Cause and effect. Put them together, sista!
Let those who have ears hear.
