This question was asked:
What is the secret of women? I asked someone in my taxicab if he knew, and he said he was gay and had no idea. “Don’t even ask me about women,” he said. “That’s why I’m gay.” I’ve asked other people, too. One guy sort of smirked and said he has no problem with women at all. Yet he couldn’t (or wouldn’t) say any more. The thing is, human beings have been around more than half a million years, and I’m just wondering if comedies, such as “There’s Something About Mary,” are the best we can do? At the other extreme we have Shakespeare’s love sonnets. Yet seeing such movies, or reading those poems, don’t really help a person in day-to-day life, when we actually meet women. It’s as if they have some kind of radar attuned to something, yet you just can’t tell what it is. Maybe the San Francisco Bay area simply isn’t such a good place to hit it off with women. You’d think it would be a lot easier. And please, don’t start thinking there’s something wrong with me, because there isn’t. I’ve had girlfriends I’ve been crazy about, and who have been crazy about me, yet even then, I could not tell you in words, why.
And here is the AWESOME answer:
Thanks for such a well-written and interesting question. This may well have been the “original question” if Adam and Eve once existed. Obviously this has been debated throughout history and if a definitive answer had been found, we would have been taught it in high school. I shall now provide you with a variety of answers to this age-old enigma…
Savvy Male has a very good, concise summary of women, with such nuggets as:
– They have the ultimate biological multitasking operating system known to man
– Compliment a woman about her dress/hair/perfume in the first 5 minutes of a date.
– Women don’t need to be fixed. They were born with all working parts, and all put together. Just listen.
The secret is to make women happy:
Women like confident men (this is a cosmic secret!):
Women like to be cherished, respected, loved, and most of all, showered with attention:
According to a survey, women’s favorite romantic moment is “cuddling on the sofa and watching a movie together”:
Women are available in many varieties:
Russian women “…are much more patient and can tolerate things that Western women will never be able to bear.
French women are “sophisticated, beautiful, sexy, voluptuous… and yet so gullible”:
Australian women like to play rugby:
There are more physical differences between men and women than just the obvious attributes:
Men and women “use different sides of their brains to process and store long-term memories of emotional experiences”:
Women can multi-task because they use both sides of the brain:
Although they have smaller brains, women’s have “more nerve cells in their frontal lobes”:
Elaine Morgan has explained how evolution has shaped women in her book “The Descent of Women”:
One thing to keep in mind is that women get more pleasure from sex than men do, according to Tiresias who spent seven years as a woman in a Greek myth. Divulging this information cost him his eyesight.
They speak a different language:
Women of the Yao ethnic group in Hunan province, China, have their own language:
Even when they use English, some deciphering is required:
The secret of women’s language: Keywords and their meanings – FINE: This is a word a woman uses at the end of any argument that she feels she is in the right about but needs to shut you up. NEVER use fine to describe how a woman looks. This will cause you to have one of those arguments.
An understanding of body language will enable you to know when a woman wants you to approach her and when she wants you to go away:
And of course there are books available on the topic:
You may have heard that “Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus”:
and it has also been said that “…Men Don’t Listen : And Women Can’t
“Women are like golf courses…Even though you may have played a course a hundred times, chances are your approach shot rarely lands in the same place on the green.” according to the book “How to Give Her Absolute Pleasure: Totally Explicit Techniques Every Woman Wants Her Man to Know”

2,500 – 1,500 years ago
Around 500 BC to 500AD
It’s well before daybreak when Mother wakes me for school. I’m still so tired! But I must rise, Mother tells me that my education is the most important thing in my life. I stretch and rise from my pallet, and head for the bath.
Julia, our servant, has laid a fresh tunic on the low stone bench for me, crisp white linen with a deep crimson border. *sigh* I look forward to becoming a citizen – next year! – so I may do away with childish things and wear the pure white tunic of a citizen. She has drawn a hot bath for me, and has left fresh towels for me as well.
Julia says that in other homes, there is only cold running water or none at all, and that years ago, there was no running water! Even worse, there weren’t any toilet facilities – not even the public latrines we have in Rome today. Ugh. Dreadful. I’m glad to live in such modern, civilized times. I don’t think I could bear living without running water or a decent toilet.
I bathe quickly, wishing I could stay and soak, knowing my time is limited. If I am late, the headmaster will be furious, and he’s not a man to be trifled with. I dry myself and dress, and quickly scrub my teeth before dashing across the courtyard to the dining room. The servants have already laid a good breakfast out – bread, wine, cheese and olives. Mother sits at the table, father has already left for the Senate for the day. We eat together and Mother asks after my studies. She is very strict with me, reminding me that it is important to be well educated, that I may become a Senator like Father. Though I think Father’s job is interesting enough, She hands me a few candles, my wax tablet and scrolls, and shoos me outside, encouraging me to hurry so I am not late.
I scurry through the dark street, and find that my friend and schoolmate, Marcus, is just ahead of me. I call to him to wait, and we walk the remaining distance to school together. He has been to the bakery, and is wolfing down a pancake as we walk. He rose late again, his mother isn’t nearly as strict as mine.
When we arrive at school, we stop to light our candles at one of the oil lamps burning near the entrance. It’s important to remember to bring candles each day, lest we haven’t light enough to read by before the sun rises. The headmaster is already there, and he greets us with a curt nod and a gesture to sit.
We spend the day studying intensely. The Twelve Tables of Law, the duties of a Roman citizen, philosophy, arithmetic, grammar, oration. By midday, I’m famished and my brain hurts. The headmaster pushes us very hard, and it requires all of my energy to concentrate. I’m relieved to have a break to go home for lunch!
Julia has prepared lunch for me – Mother is at the Forum, most likely shopping or visiting with friends. I have a piece of cold fish, some bread and cheese, and then I go back outside to look for Marcus.
Marcus and I throw a ball around for a little while, each of us trying to throw harder than the other. It feels good to be out in the sun and fresh air! Our break time is soon over, though, and we rush back to school to finish our lessons for the day.
When I return home, I find that my sister is in the courtyard with Mother. They are sewing silk flowers, and Mother looks very pleased with my sister’s progress. Father is inside, having returned from the Senate, and is preparing to attend a dinner party in the home of another Senator this evening. He claps me on the shoulder and asks after my studies, particularly after my lessons in oration. I explain what the headmaster has taught us, and he tells me I will make a fine Senator some day. I hope this is so, I want very much to follow in Father’s footsteps.
Father leaves for the dinner party, and I join Mother and my sister in the dining room. Julia and our other servants have prepared a delicious meal for us – roasted pigeon, figs, dates, cheese, grapes, bread and wine. We linger over dinner, enjoying each others’ company and the chance to relax. Mother informs us that we are to see the physician tomorrow, to ensure that we are healthy. People don’t seem to fall ill very often, but when they do, our physicians are usually able to cure them. We are very fortunate to have such skilled healers here. We sit in the courtyard for a little while after dinner, to look at the stars and enjoy the night breezes, then I retire to my sleeping quarters, for it will soon be time to rise again and spend another day at school.
