Mismatched Expectations

Ever feel like you'll never understand women? Here's a news flash: They feel the same way about men. Here are some of the common mismatches in the dynamics between the sexes:

She Hopes for . . . Adoration from her man.
He Provides . . . Overzealous interest and communication in the beginning, and then a steep dropoff a few months into the relationship.

He Hopes for . . . Admiration from his woman.
She Provides . . . Enthusiastic compliments in the beginning, but they turn into criticisms after the new wears off the relationship.

She Hopes for . . . Flowers and other surprises once in a while.
He Provides . . . "I really want to watch this golf match! Would you mind getting me a beer and some chips?"

He Hopes for . . . Tickets to the next pro football game.
She Provides . . . "Want to go to the art museum on Sunday?"

She Hopes for . . . Slow, gentle kisses, holding hands, walking arm in arm.
He Provides . . . A quick kiss, a chest smushing hug and a grab to the rear.

He Hopes for . . . "Passionate embraces" several times a day.
She Provides . . . Lukewarm responses because she's too stressed out and tired and feels unappreciated.

She Hopes for . . . An occasional girls' night where she can let loose and vent about all her frustrations with him.
He Provides . . . Jealousy because he feels threatened and left out.

He Hopes for . . . A weekend of golfing, fishing or some other outing with his buddies.
She Provides . . . A honey-do list and nagging about all the things he needs to do for her first.

Maybe a bit more understanding of your sweetie's expectations will help you satisfy her hopes and dreams. Then maybe she'll do the same for you. Who knows? If you put forth a bit more effort, you just might be able to turn those mismatches into a perfect blend.
