Disclaimer: The opinions expressed in this post are my personal ones. It is an attempt to decode certain things women do and look at in a lighter vein. There are obvious exceptions to every rule but these are just some of my observations. You are entitled to your own opinion, of course.
Women will always mark their territory. While going to college, I met several of those independent, I-don’t-need-a-man-in-my-life, head on their shoulders (not on a man’s shoulder :P) kind of women. While that emotion is commendable and probably the right step towards a better world ( I sometimes wish the world had just women!), these are also the same women who would in their own way, mark their territory on any man they may hold close. I once knew a woman who would not let her guy friend date her girl friend because she wanted both their undivided attention. There are also more subtle ways for a woman to mark her territory, and no, not peeing on a man like a dog. Sometimes women may make public displays of affection towards these kith and kin or boyfriends and at other times they throw a tantrum to get their point across. And if you thought only the XY chromosomes were privy to these great spurts of enormous affection, think twice. Learn this, a woman will be as possessive about her girl friend as she will be about her man. Sisters before Misters. How many times have you heard about that famous high school showdown where the famous best friends duo split up because another (cooler) chicklet entered the equation! Not to say, that there is no way around this principle. Learn what a woman wants and keep her happy. Do not slight her love. The wrath of such a woman is no different from Mata Kali unleashing her power on mankind. Having said that, a woman is also most likely to deal with her possessive ways and insecurities best. Most women when confronted with such a situation will most likely, talk about it. And God forbid if you get the ominous cold shoulder, then know that you really need to set things right. She is the Susie Derkins when you become the Calvin. Or Hobbes. But a woman who claims she has not even the slightest bit of possessiveness or insecurity in her relationships is a myth. And I just busted it.
Quote me on this one day you shall, but a woman will always have an emotional upper hand in a relationship. And that’s just how we like it. ;)Like a great soul once said, the end must justify the means. So know that if you have ever been a part of this, you are truly loved. In a woman’s own special way! :) :)
