What Is Wrong With Women?

That’s a pretty open question.

Let me be more specific.

What’s wrong with women who want to turn their guy into someone else?

slobEvery women I have ever met wants to ‘improve’ the man they’re in a relationship with.  Most women will not just take a guy for himeslf.  Most women want their guy to dink less beer and watch less sports television.

You would think that if woman wants their other half to be different, then they would have looked for a different man in the first place.  It’s not as though women are short of choice when it comes to men.  Almost any woman can get any man they want, given that the man in question is interested in sex and the woman is willing to oblige.

So, a woman starts dating a reclusive guy, who lives comfortably alone in his sparsely furnished garret.  Before the poor fool knows what’s happening ‘She’ has invaded his space and started to change things.  Curtains, rugs, and colour start to appear in his comfortably all-white garret, spoiling the simplicity of the bare floorboards.  ‘She’ starts buying him clothes he would never have bought for himself.  She changes his brand of aftershave / cologne.  ‘She’ wants him to buy a sensible car instead of the insane sports car he’s very happy driving.

SNLPFMPerhaps ‘She’ suggests a change of job / career might be better for his happiness.  ‘She’ says that he should spend less time at the sports bar with his pals, maybe drink a little less, eat more vegetables and less prime steak.

In short, ‘She’ wants to improve her man by changing him ~ ‘She’ wants him to put away boyish things and grow up.  ‘She’ wants him to be successful.

Success took me to her bosom like a maternal boa constrictor. ~ Noel Coward

All this change and impovement results from the maternal instinct in women.

The bottom line is; Give a woman an acorn and the next thing you know you’re up to your rump in oak trees.  Col. Thaddeus Gearhart

  1. This post could so easily be switched around the other way too. I don’t think its necessarily a gender-specific issue. I read it back thinking of both scenarios and it works both ways. There’s always going to be people out there trying to change things about other people either through genuine helpfulness and support or whatever, but when this comes into the relationship it either works or it doesn’t. Changing how you make his coffee, or how he makes your cup of tea the wrong way and needs to learn how to do it just right is one thing, but when it goes deeper than this and you are attempting to change the essence of who someone is means you are probably in the wrong relationship and it doesn’t matter how many patches you put on, or attempts to change, eventually it will fall apart either prior to or immediately after a deep realisation you cannot change everything about someone, and nobody is perfect. It’s not nice being on the receiving end of having life sucked out of you, it’s important you love people for who they are and what they bring to the relationship, rather than fixing their imperfections (I now drink dodgy tasting tea and thank him for making me it – or make my own! 🙂

  2. I can like it and disagree. One man said to me “where have you been all my life?” and then “I have NEVER found a woman to cook for me.” LOL. Men do like being taken care of, but only laundry and meals. My husband watches sports, I read. My husband drinks beer, I prefer wine. My husband has no fashion sense, I love him anyway, bless his heart.

  3. I understand where this comes from and I can only think it does not make sense to want to change completely someone when ‘you knew yourself what you were getting yourself into’. However, there is 1. most people really do not show their ‘true colours’ right from the beginning so ‘she really didn’t know what she was getting herself into’ and 2. ‘completely’ – means people do have to change some things to compromise, when I mean change, I do mean their personality or what they are/like to do , but attitudes, for example.
