Mike, from The Mike/Mitch Project commented on my WoW Widow post that most gamers probably wish they had such an understanding wife as I am. Apparently, as I have been told by the majority of my male friends, I am not a typical female. This is a bit confusing to me.
I have no idea what defines a typical female. When I ask my male friends, I get answers such as:
You don’t get jealous.
You go to the ladies room by yourself in bars. (Seriously?)
You don’t like to shop.
You like to watch football and you really understand it.
You’re a geek.
You don’t care what other people think of you.
You don’t gossip.
You really listen to what I am saying when I talk.
You don’t judge people.
You are passionate about what you believe in.
I can talk to you about anything.
I know where I stand with you at all times.
You put yourself out there honestly. You never pretend to be someone that you aren’t.
I am just me. In the immortal words of Popeye “I yam who I yam.” I have no idea if most women aren’t the same way. I see some of the same qualities in some of my women friends.
I have many more close male friends than I do women friends. Could my seemingly odd attitude be the reason?
What defines a typical female? Is there such a thing?
