If only men would love us for what we are.

If only men would see the heart that still beats for them after (say) 10yrs of marriage and not the monotony, not the thick flab..not anything else.

Vandita said...

if only men were not all logic and practicality and understood us and our emotions better!

:: Clouds :: said...

If only men tried to understand us.

[ to dads,friends,bros and boyfriends - yes,yes,i know they do try.a lot.but a little more.sometimes all we want is comforting silence, but they give us mouthfuls of words.we know we are complicated but we'd love you more if you tried a little harder to unravel the mystery called us]

rayshma said...

...realize that it's not all that easy being a woman.

...understand that women are different - not better, not worse, just different - and let them be.

wax could be substituted with shaping eyebrows.

Mamta said...

Solitaire said...

Hey all, its quite interesting that there are 14 comments here and only 7 in the other section.

Is it that women complain too much or is it that men cannot be bothered with commenting?

Cinderella. said...

Would quit thinking that every female fren might be a potential girlfren...

anonme said...

If only men would delve half as deep as we do in a relationship.

If only they looked into our eyes than simply heard the words.

Anonymous said...

not doubt too much ... that we love them for who they are ... not for their pay check or family background... or good looks...

Pri said...

if only med would NOT BE SOO INSENSITIVE...

Keshi said...

**Is it that women complain too much or is it that men cannot be bothered with commenting?


Solitaire it may be cos most women r DEEP enough think abt such things and express too..and most men r SHALLOW enough not to express.

lol!

Keshi.

Me-too said...

If only men would have the courage of displaying their emotions!

Sweetstickychewy said...

If only men would just be themselves and not try to be somebody else.

Pavi!!!! said...

12 words..n i get scared..i find it so hard to say a lot in minimal words..Will try my best

If Only men would
- dare to shed a tear
- understand the importance of communication and conversations!
- care to express their emotions and feelings
- realize the value of a hug (not the romantic one)
- learn to respect EVERY WOMAN they meet
- realize that women are actually simple and not as complicated as they think!(ooops this one is 13, sorry!)

Ashu said...

understand what goes on in a girl s mind, perhaps that would solve all complications and complexities of relationships

Keshi said...

if only men could shutup for a moment and LISTEN, not just HEAR.

:)

Keshi.

vitruvian said...

...not be afraid to realize their emotions.

If only men would not run from commitment like its plague.

Loved greys anatomy as much as women do :)

Neeku said...

Not assume that the fairer counterpart is stupid and weak at Math. Dude we do brains ... and at times they work faster than yours!

Keshi said...

**If only men would not run from commitment like its plague

haha Solitaire good one!

Keshi.

Keshi said...

If only men would open up than keep quiet like they missed their toilet break.

Keshi.

Sam said...

jeezz.... seems like i strolled into a lady's club here!!

btw, the comments in men's section is low... wanna know why???

because we love women for what they are and no matter what we say...we don't want them to change... we would rather have them with flaws and all than being perfect (whatever that means!!)

Despite the whimsical nature, extreme emotions, mood swings and god knows what not... we still love women.. and that's how we want them!!! pamper them, spoil them, love them crazy.... and then smile to sleep!!

as joey mcintyre said: "And i hope that you'd stay the same, for there's nothing abt you i'd change!!!"

PREETI said...

my 2 cents worth at the end of it: if only men wud think with their head rather than with their d***

gunj said...

if only men wud stop being protective...life wud b heaven!!

Alok said...

Solitaire,

Your comment over at the other post about the lack of comments from their side sparked me to go into another scientific experiment (jobless that I am).

What was the reason for women outnumbering men in comments initially?
Was it laziness on men's part?
Or was it because women complain too much?

I think the reason lies with the gender distribution of your usual readers.

Data from recent posts with more than 30 comments (each entry might be wrong by at most 1):

W M
16 10 : Ugly Bride?
13 7 : Gay?
16 12 : Woman's Heart
11 8 : looks?
15 9 : Men's day?
16 8 : Hips?
14 12 : Marriage?

Avg.:

W M
14.42 9.43
59.5 % 40.5%

It is quite apparent that readers that frequent your blog are mostly female. So, I think factors like male laziness or female complains cannot be deduced here.

At the time you posted the comment, I think the ratio was close to the average. But your comment seems to have sparked it up.

(P.S. This is no serious assessment, just a bit of mathematical exploration and deduction from a jobless person :D)

Deepali said...

@ Sam - Pleaseeeeeee... Sounds all good but I doubt anyone believe any of that.

@ Alok - Good job. I figured that one reason would be there would be that more women comment on the blog in general and therefore the trend continues.

Solitaire said...

@ Alok, OMGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG!!!!!!!!!!!

You actually had the patience and enthusiasm to do that?

AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Are you into research?

Sam said...

@deepali: you've two options - either you trust me or you don't!!

just as a proof of concept just ask your dad, whether he'd have loved your mum had she been different??? he'd have loved to change so many things (may be), but then wud he have loved her the way does after 20+ yrs of marriage??? doesn't he love her for the small nags that might come from her when say forgets to dump the dirtysocks at their rightful place???

find out.... for every example you have against my words.. i can give you two in my favor!!! :)

It's not good to be true.. it is the truth!!! :)

cheerio!!

Alok said...

Hehe,
I'm not too much into research.

But I guess when I find interest in something, I like to blow it apart from its very roots. So there you go!

P.S. The data collection wasn't in the defense of men, just scientific analysis of a situation :P

Me said...

>>if only men would realise that there is nothing embarrasing abt expressing/ demonstrating feelings.

>>come out of their perceived notions about hw they must behave to b classified as a 'hunk'

apparntly feelings n emotions r not fr thm..
