WOMEN ADVICE FROM UNCLE TO NEPHEW

WOMEN...ADVICE FROM UNCLE TO NEPHEW
(based on a conversation of letters from a Greek uncle to nephew 460 AD)

Dear young man, if it's love you seek
Beware that you don’t seem too meek
A woman says she wants a man
Who will be kind --meet her demands
But men who try to please with smiles
Are not victorious in life's trials
Lift up your eyes and look around
The bold men rule the sky and ground 
If you’re demure –you’re thought a freak
And women spread the word you’re weak
If you run scared or spurn a fight
You’ll find your bed an empty sight

    Interesting how we sometimes make assessments against people based on quite distorted information. Playing against the idea that a man should be hyper masculine to fulfill some kind of ideal. This can lead to shallow interpretations, but we are again creatures of first impressions when we engage in rapid fire dating.
