So, I’m watching one of my favorite comedians of all time, Chris Rock, and he says one of the funniest one-liners ever: “There are only three things women need in life: food, water, and compliments.”
Cue the Rant
Compliments are to women as sex is to men. We both need them to not only survive, but also to function properly. Now, I know a lot of you womenfolk will try to downplay the importance of compliments, but that’s covering up the truth. Most women have no idea how big a part compliments and attention play in their lives. That’s because women are so used to it that you all no longer notice it, but you need it. However, that’s not you all’s fault. It is man’s fault! Yeah, I said it.
Men are the enablers and are responsible for the crazy attention seekers that women have become. See, ladies, you don’t notice it, but since you were about thirteen, guys have been trying to sleep with you on a regular basis. Guys have been offering it to you every day since you hit puberty. That’s been the primary goal of every man you’ve met since then; every one of ‘em. Now, you don’t even notice. It’s just become a part of your daily routine. That’s also why it’s not hard for you to turn down sex.
You don’t think it’s true? Well, I beg to differ.
You see it on social networks everyday: half-naked females, the pre-club pictures, and your “look at me!” headshots. It’s ALL for some type of attention.
Now, of course, some women need more attention than others. There are the ones who will do anything to get the attention that they’re missing and then there’s the more normal attention-seeking woman. At the end of the day though, no woman can function without some type of attention or compliments.
Ladies, I have this theory: If you were single and every single guy on earth COMPLETELY and utterly ignored you for a week you wouldn’t know what to do with yourselves. I’m talking about men not talking to you in class, not having a man approach you in the store, not one man even looking your way at a bar or club; no attention or time of day whatsoever. I don’t think single women could take it. You’d be pissed, depressed, and probably wouldn’t realize what you were mad about. I mean, really, think about it and be honest with yourselves. When’s the last time somebody said you were pretty or tried to holla? Today, yesterday, on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram, right? Or the last time u went grocery shopping maybe?
Here’s the point that I really want to drive home, ladies: a guy showing interest in you or him being physically attracted to you means the world to you, but it really doesn’t mean THAT much.
Yea, it’s always a nice ego booster to know that someone likes you and is attracted to you, but you’ve GOT to just take the compliment for what it really is. A man is sexually attracted to pretty much ANY attractive woman.
That’s it, I’m calm. It’s Friday. Don’t forget to cue the Sir Charles.
