The difference between men and women are that women have nails stuck in the foreheads. Not really, but a You Tube video does a great job of outwardly showing the inner difference between men and women. I don’t think I’ve seen anything else that comes close to doing as good of a job at showing the difference as this video does.

In case you’re wondering, no I don’t find this video to be offensive to women. I should know if it is offensive to women, because I am one. I think it’s a terrific metaphor for the way men and women deal with a situation.

We women just want our man to listen and to at least pretend to understand how we’re feeling. No, we don’t want them to solve the problem for us. We just want to know that they care. Of course, we realize that we could solve the problem ourselves, or with the help of our men. However, we don’t want the problem solved, we just like to use it as an excuse for conversation and to spend a little time with our man.

The next time you men see the obvious nail sticking out of your lady’s head. Please don’t try and pull it out. Just sit their quietly and listen to your lovely lady while she talks about the pain. It’s all we really want from you.
