failure to communicate

Women are often very difficult to impress.

~

my words are banal, she’s heard it all before

yet my words are very true, I really do care for her

I’m pouring my whole heart away, wish I could find more

memorable originality, honesty, sincere Shakespearian prose

to convince her that I’m not just some other lustful jerk in a bar

    I usually get that impression when I’ve spent two hours getting dolled up, show up to the bar around 6:00 and sit at the empty bar with my fave bartender, followed soon by 3 or 4 girls who sit at a table close to the door, far from the male bartender I alone and talking to. Sure, we’re just friends but y’all don’t think that’s possible unlesx you’re Billy or Antony. Then some guy twice my age walks in dark tan, paint on his t-shirt and in his hair, walks right past the table full of giggly girls, straight past the empty barstool, points to the stool my feet are propped on and asks if he can sit there. Yeah, never start with the best looking girl in the bar whose talking to the hot bartender. Not saying you are one of those, but, that’s my tip.

    1. That is so funny, so true, and so sad. Why is it the sometimes, some of us guys can be real jerks? I try, I really do try, but often I get it so wrong and forget that girls are real people too. Write out 500 times, I must try harder to really connect with all women. ❤

        It’s okay. When it comes to the bar scene, women forget men and women are people. Not your fault.

  4. I don’t want impressive. I want communication, affection, fun. Topics abound in earrings, clothing, tats, music, the list is endless!!!! And if the tune playing just happens to be ‘Pretty Woman’, go with it!!!

    1. We both know guys can be very bad at communicating with women ~ up to and including me, although I’m working at being better. ‘Pretty Woman’ ~ cool song. ❤

    2. Maybe the mistake men make is that we are too focused on being impressive. We sacrifice communication for impression. At the end of the day, we loose on both ends- neither communicating nor impressive.

  5. I was going to say what Cindy said … while words may warm our hearts and make us smile for a bit, actions speak louder than words in the long run. I had this discussion with H just last week … but he only listens to approximately 7% of what I say, so …. 😀

    Hugs, Jack!!!

    1. Most men are very bad at listening…. Words are cheap, but I believe that the right words, said at the right time, can go a long way towards making a relationship work. ❤

      1. Yes, I fully agree. The right words can warm the heart, for sure. But when the words are at odds with actions, then I have a problem and think perhaps the words lacked sincerity. But H is fine … he’s just sometimes obtuse 🙂 And you, my friend, are very wise and a good man. ❤

  6. Prove it to her, with your actions over time. It is the only thing that will work.
