The abridged version of what women want

A lively dinner conversation on Tuesday night in Columbus had some of the female writers in our storytellers group talking about what women want. In short (and I suspect this is true also of men, though very few would probably say so) is that women want to be cherished.

We want to know we're thought of as something other than the replacer of toilet paper. That our talents span our minds and our hearts as well as our ability to scour a sink to a gleaming shine. That part of what makes us sexually attractive is the way we think and look at the world.

So gentlemen, if you want to make your sweetie's day, tell her that you cherish her mind as well as her body. Trust me, you'll enjoy the response. After all, 98 percent of seduction is in the mind. The rest is just pheromones.

You left out all the good stuff! ;)

Yes, but time is short and did I really want to open that can of worms here? Probably not. :)

Shalom Wendy,

Ah, if it were only that easy.

By all means, do please illuminate us on the good stuff. Meanwhile, we males will continue to dream that we can be like Mel Gibson in that goofy movie, armed with the ability to hear female thoughts. And we need it, because we're part of a different race with an entirely different language sometime.
