Aaron’s word of inspiration this week is Mars.
Men are from Mars, women are from Venus – is that how the saying goes?
I guess this is supposed to mean that we come from different planets, probably because the genders have different ways of cognitively processing things, and we have different development stages.
Or possibly because men should be more like Ares, the Greek god of Mars and women should be like Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of Venus?
All I know is that in my very exhausting search for a romantic partner, there are many things that I have come across that separate men and women. Mostly, men seem to just not want commitment right now. Or at least that’s what I am finding.
Or that women tend to romanticize basically every encounter. And I am 100% guilty of that myself! Even with my male friends, there are a few who in my mind at one time or another have slipped into “hmm what if…”
There is actually a person I am talking to now that I have this big “what if” about. He wants kids and a family and stuff, same as me. He’s a little bit younger, which I’m starting to get used to. But he’s also not mentally or emotionally in a place for a relationship. And as I am starting to pull out of my own cloud of mental ughness and into the brightness that is my usual personality, I know that I can’t force him to be in the same place to try anything. But also I’m not exactly sure what he thinks we are since we never really have talked about it like at all. Even after matching on a dating app, and switching to text. It’s never really been in my mind that he is a romantic link at all. I know I should probably just ask him, but his replies are few and far between and don’t want that text just sitting there unanswered for 36 hours haha.
So that was a rabbit hole if I have ever typed one LOL
Anyway, I’m not sure what type of mythological whatever men and women are supposed to be, but it would sure be awesome if at some point brain waves and emotions all lined up at the same place hahaha!
As for me, I’m really happy to report that this week has not sucked! I am actually doing really well and hope that it continues because I would love to be able to do more than just sleep and be completely drained when I’m not working.
