something women say that men will never get

by Nanette Bellman

as a woman, i was born with this ability
to multitask, with my heart.
that's why i can say,
"i love you, but i don't like you right now."

OMGosh, you found a way to explain it!!! I SOOOO understand this, and, in my experience, you're right, (most) men will never get it how it is we can love them but not like them, and that not liking them for a minute isn't anything at all in the long run.

... quite poignant... and you think men miss this? "Methinks the woman doth protest too much!"

I agree with you Joe. Love is far too big a four-letter word not to encompass a great deal more than minor a discomfort or shortcoming in someone. We all have them but few of us admit them.

i can't even say that i love them; i'll just be logical from now on and $#%@ing throw away the emotions. i like this.

Short and to the point... I can relate.

Sounds like a plan. Nice work, and here's to seeing it through.
