    1. That puts me in mind of a curious truth for me. Does it apply to you too? Have you found you can love someone and yet be sexually incompatible with them? Kind of off topic here, but I’m curious what you’ve found?

    1. I think my problem is see men more clearly than I see women. I tend to idealize women, I’m more optimistic about them. Maybe that’s because If I didn’t idealize one side or the other, I’d have a pretty dismal view of life. I’m not looking forward to the day I am forced to wake up.

  1. I’m intrigued by this question and stymied about a response, mostly because I tend not to think in terms of men vs. women. I think a lot of what is perceived as being a jerk (by either gender) is really a communication problem. But maybe the answer also depends on how you define jerk.

    1. Oh! That reeks of stinking brilliance! Yes, I so agree with you about a communication problem. In my view, men and women are 98% or more similar, but tend to focus on the 2%. And that 2% has been known to create a few problems.

      Question: So far as I can see, so many issues between men and women arise from each side trying to reform the other side to be more like them. Does that make any sense to you?

      1. Again, I would broaden this beyond men and women. On the whole, I think we struggle most with others when we have an agenda about who they are supposed to be to meet our needs.
