Despite our obvious differences most people like to say men and women are more alike than not, and that, in the end, we all want the same things. I'm going to easily debunk this assertion using the simplest of examples; our 6 basic needs.
Women wonder if it will make them fat;
Men wonder if it will satisfy their appetite.
Women wonder if it will make them bigger...as in bloated;
Men wonder about the shrinkage factor.
Women wonder if there's a big enough closet in there for both her clothes and her shoes;
Men wonder what's the cost/square foot of that shelter that will house said large closet.
Women wonder if will make them look fat (or hot);
Men wonder when women will take off their clothing.
Women wonder what channel it is;
Men wonder if what happened in the film Total Recall with the air could really happen.
Women wonder if they will ever know true love;

Face it. We are different. We think differently. We act differently. We feel differently. It's time we all just embraced our fascinating differences...accept them....enjoy them...and stop trying to be like the other. Neither of us can change. Men will always be from Mars. Women will always be from Venus.
