Genie In a Bottle

Men...when it comes to women...where to start?

It amazes me how many men treat their jobs or their cars with more attention than they give their women.

Somewhere along the line men got the message that it is OK to be lazy. All the while, their little flower in the garden is wilting away...

If they are not willing to pay attention and nurture what is in front of them…someone will pass by and notice that little flower needs some water…some sunlight…to be given some attention…to be fed.

I want to sit men down sometimes and say…you know your car? How you tune it up, give it regular oil changes, detail it? Rotate and align those tires? How you even put on that little sticker to that say when you need to do your next servicing by so you don't forget? And how you do that because it's that important to keep things running smoothly?

Do you enjoy taking the car and waiting for the oil to be changed? No. It isn’t probably on your top 5 things to do in life. But you do it anyway. Because you need to take care of your car so your car can take care of you.

Take that same care and lavish it on your woman. Call it relationship maintenance. I'm not saying you don't enjoy spending time with your woman, but there are certain acts...such as that wedding rehearsal dinner of her friend's...that you might not necessarily care to do...but you should do it anyway.

How come it is so hard for men to maintain the same amount of responsibility when it comes to their relationships?

She is a genie in a bottle. Rub her the right way and she will grant you ANYTHING you want. ANYTHING.

Instead, so many put that bottle up on a shelf and let the dust collect as it sits there and then wonder why their wishes are never granted…duh!!!

I think I have said enough to hopefully get some man's attention.

If you can’t approach a relationship with your heart first, maybe approach it in this logical way above. Your heart will follow once you see the results. I hope you have enjoyed reading my posts as much as I have enjoyed writing them!
