New Moon with the man.

Well my hubby finally watched New Moon last night. He liked it. After making fun of us gals in the house for watching Twilight a bizillion times he finally broke down and watched that movie too and he had to admit it was a good movie. Us girls felt vindicated and did a little high five dance. Anyhoo, after it was over he still didn't get it why us gals love those movies so much. I was like, um..... if you ever read my blog you would have read the post I did to men telling you dudes why women love the Twilight series so much. I don't think he has ever read my blog actually. To be honest, I find that slightly irritating. Doesn't he care what I am up to? Hence, the love of the Twilight series. Edward and Jacob would totally be checking Bella's blog (if she had one) daily. Yes, they would.

So I tried to explain that whole thing about women want to be wanted and his man brain wasn't getting it. As I was trying to help him get it I wondered if his obviously broken emotional receptors would function better if I banged his head against a wall or a table. You know, like it totally works with the remote control. I decided against it.

He still thinks I love the movie because of Jacob's abs. Whatever..... I think it's funny that us women connect with this movie on a deep emotional level and the guys can't get past the physical. I honestly don't know how the two sexes ever properly communicate.

I tried making it simple. Mike I said, everyone has needs. Those needs need to be met or a lack is created. Satan seizes upon our lack. Lack is not good. I said, we all need to eat so it is understood someone must prepare a meal. We need clean clothes so someone must wash the dirty ones. We all need to live in a clean environment so someone needs to clean up the mess. Individually, we need more specific needs. You need me to respect you and give you praises on what a great provider you are and for all the "man things" you do. I as a woman, need you to show me you appreciate me and ahem, want me as a woman. He was perplexed as to how to do that. Good grief! Do I really have to write a manual? Maybe I should, I could be rich!! I'll call it "How to Keep Your Wife Happy and Make Her Feel Wanted". Nah, I just told him to go back and watch the two movies again. Dork. That's what I get for marrying a toolbelt cowboy :)

On a positive note, he is a great hubby. Everyone loves Mike. I think I'll keep him.

Men are clueless, sometimes. However, some learn as they age to be a little more attentive and sensitive to their wives.
