Why men don't listen and Women cant read maps

I read this book a week ago and found most of it miserably (for me) true....



It implies around the main task of men and women millions of years ago which indirectly makes us what we are now. Man - hunt. Woman - nurture.

The first chapter is just as hilarious and true as the last chapter. It gets a little bit boring in the middle but come the last chapter which discusses about Sex, the favorite topic, you'll be eager to read more...

The first page highlights some things that are obvious which are :-

When a man goes to a rest-room, he usually goes for one reason and one reason only. Women use rest-rooms as social lounges and therapy rooms. Women who go to a rest-rooms as strangers can come out best friends and lifelong buddies. Everyone would be instantly suspicious of the man, however, who calls out, "Hey Frank, I'm going to the toilet - wanna come with me?"

Men dominate TV remote controls and flick through the channels; women don't mind watching the commercials.

Under pressure, men drink alcohol/smoke and invade other countries; women eat chocolate and go shopping.

Women criticize men for being insensitive, uncaring , not listening, not being warm and compassionate, not talking, not giving enough love, not being committed to relationships, wanting to have sex rather than making love, and leaving the toilet seat up.




Men criticize women about their driving (ops!!!) , for not being able to read street directories, for turning maps upside down, for their lack of a sense of direction, for talking too much without getting to the point, for not initiating sex often enough and for leaving the toilet seat down.

Men are amazed how a woman can't see a red flashing oil light on the car dashboard but can spot a dirty sock in a dark corner 50 meters away. Women are bewildered by men who can consistently parallel park a car in a tight spot using a rear-vision mirror, but can never find the G-spot.

If woman is out driving and gets lost, she'll stop and ask for directions. To a man, this is a sign of weakness. He'll drive round in circles for hours, muttering things like, "I've found a new way to get there" or "I'm in the general area" and "Hey, I recognize that petrol station!"

And so on....

I loved it!

Hi Mom,

The part about parallel parking and finding the G-spot is eerily accurate. Ouch!

Dr. John Gray says Men are from Mars while Women are from Venus. Did you know that the planet Venus rotates clockwise while other planets rotate counter-clockwise? Just goes to show that women simply have a mind of their own ;-)

The differences made this world interesting and unique.

Can you imagine if women and men have same attitude and interest?

(Oh... no!)

Oh... Thank GOD we are different!
