For Valentine's Day, men like to give their ladies something they made themselves:

Supergirl is way more interesting than Superman:



This song can sound a bit sexist at the beginning but no, it's very cute.

I want a girl that can
fug like an angel,
cook like a devil
swing like a dancer
work like a pony
dream like a poet
flow like a mountain stream.

Super girl, my super girl

I want a girl that can
kiss like a cherry
squeeze like a berry
smell like an ocean
talk like a songbird
walk like a fountain
touch like a flower
sing like the Leaves of Grass

I want a girl that can
love like a monkey
hug like a castle
think like a darling
laugh like a lemon
eat like a monster
roar like a jug of wine

I want a girl that can
kiss like an eagle
bend like a sapling
bark like a beagle
bite like a bagel
fly like a butter
shake like an mmmm in an mmmm

This is what my memory tells me I heard in a documentary so maybe the following is not acurate.

BOY & GIRL

Back in time it wasn't this way.

It was red for men (power, strenght)


(This is just a Spanish card... don't know since when it exists this way)


and blue for women (sentimental, mystic)




The pastel colors in Impressionism made them think it could be a good idea for boys, pastel red and for girls, pastel blue



But later in WWI they saw those naval warriors dressed in blue and thought it should be the opposite: pastel blue for boy, pastel red for girl.

When a Woman Loves a Man
by David Lehman

When she says margarita she means daiquiri.
When she says quixotic she means mercurial.
And when she says, "I'll never speak to you again,"
she means, "Put your arms around me from behind
as I stand disconsolate at the window."

He's supposed to know that.

When a man loves a woman he is in New York and she is in Virginia
or he is in Boston, writing, and she is in New York, reading,
or she is wearing a sweater and sunglasses in Balboa Park and he
is raking leaves in Ithaca
or he is driving to East Hampton and she is standing disconsolate
at the window overlooking the bay
where a regatta of many-colored sails is going on
while he is stuck in traffic on the Long Island Expressway.

When a woman loves a man it is one ten in the morning
she is asleep he is watching the ball scores and eating pretzels
drinking lemonade
and two hours later he wakes up and staggers into bed
where she remains asleep and very warm.

When she says tomorrow she means in three or four weeks.
When she says, "We're talking about me now,"
he stops talking. Her best friend comes over and says,
"Did somebody die?"

When a woman loves a man, they have gone
to swim naked in the stream
on a glorious July day
with the sound of the waterfall like a chuckle
of water rushing over smooth rocks,
and there is nothing alien in the universe.

Ripe apples fall about them.
What else can they do but eat?

When he says, "Ours is a transitional era,"
"that's very original of you," she replies,
dry as the martini he is sipping.

They fight all the time
It's fun
What do I owe you?
Let's start with an apology
Ok, I'm sorry, you dickhead.
A sign is held up saying "Laughter."
It's a silent picture.
"I've been fucked without a kiss," she says,
"and you can quote me on that,"
which sounds great in an English accent.

One year they broke up seven times and threatened to do it
another nine times.

When a woman loves a man, she wants him to meet her at the
airport in a foreign country with a jeep.
When a man loves a woman he's there. He doesn't complain that
she's two hours late
and there's nothing in the refrigerator.

When a woman loves a man, she wants to stay awake.
She's like a child crying
at nightfall because she didn't want the day to end.

When a man loves a woman, he watches her sleep, thinking:
as midnight to the moon is sleep to the beloved.
A thousand fireflies wink at him.
The frogs sound like the string section
of the orchestra warming up.
The stars dangle down like earrings the shape of grapes.

That's very entertaining.
At the beginning, reading it, I was laughing inside but later it made me sad.

...^... I think this is the line I most identify with:

"When a woman loves a man, she wants him to meet her at the
airport in a foreign country with a jeep."

...I wrote a train poem. In 1974 I was in an underground tube station in London, with a copy of Anna Karennina under my arm. This is my many-moons-later afterthought:

trains of thought

On her pallid face
drifts of snow
softly fall.

On the platform
from a red steel engine
black smoke billows
and obscures her
desperate figure
stumbling on numb feet
as she tries
to pace the train
easing from the station
as she races.

Look ahead Anna,

imagine me far below
those drifts of falling snow,
a million creeping faces gathering
momentum, sweeping past and then

it’s just an empty platform and me
and the warm turbine wind huffing on my cheek,
lifting sheets of newsprint,
stirring soot beneath my feet

as I think about you.



...I think the book opens with a soldier leaving for the war while a desperate Anna runs fitfully and hopelessly along the platform, pacing the train as it leaves, for as many last lingering glimpses of the soldier as she can get before the train finally pulls away into the distance and is gone. It's snowing. The imagery is white.
...I was standing underground freezing to death alone on a dirty tube station. Soot everywher...under my feet, up my nose, in my head. The imagery is black...my romantic notions of the adventure and romance I'd find in London absolutely shot Rolling Eyes

Freud said women fantasize about men and men fantasize about a lot of things. But he always found, in men's fantasies, hidden in a corner, a woman for whom the man had undertook those heroic adventures.

Maybe women only fantasized directly about men because in Freud's time they didn't have much else to fantasize about due to their limited ground of movements Question

Thank you for sharing that, Blue Moon. I like it. But I haven't even read Anna Karennina...

I am reminded of a quote from Grushenka (I wish to emphasise that it was not the pinhed who said this, nor is the pinhed the unidentified male in the example).

Grushenka said:
-- The women don't mean what they say, but the men mistakenly believe they do mean it;
-- The men mean what they say*, but the women mistakenly believe they don't mean it.

Here's a real life example with real quotes:

He -- "I don't love you."
She -- "You don't have to love me."

6 months later:

She -- "You don't love me."
He -- "I told you I didn't love you."
She -- "How was I supposed to know you meant that?"
He -- "You said I didn't have to love you"
She -- "You didn't really believe that, did you?"

And (whether the women believe me or not), I repeat that I was not the male in the example. bounce

*Of course "mean what they say" doesn't rule out lying--but when they lie, they mean it. geek

Some women are.

Relative to nothing--aren't there two separate threads with this same topic? scratch

I was going to say that men put the coffee cup in the holder before they do their lashes.

But to say that, I have to be more sure I knew which ones are the women. silent
