Hope Deferred

Updated: Jan 4

I have always been a very curious woman, greatly intrigued by the opposite sex. I began to do some research on men, as I read the articles I noticed the writers were women. "BUT WHY IN THE WORLD WOULD I WANT TO FIND OUT ABOUT THE MINDSET OF A MAN FROM A WOMANS PERSPECTIVE?!' Doesn't make any sense.


I spent most of my time with my father, and I hung out with the boys. Now at 28 years old I have a lot of male friends. And yet...I never really asked them, what were their thoughts on women, life, philosophies etc. As I began to dig deep behind the "why's" and "how's" some were reluctant in sharing their thoughts and feelings. But the ones that were open shared..


"What is a common issue that you are having in dating?" I asked.

"There ain't nothing out there Lola, these women don't have much to offer. There's no depth to them."

"I want a partner, someone whom I can come home to and talk to. Someone who pushes me to be a better man."

"They have been so hurt, that they are skeptical when you try to actually get to know them."

"They are out here acting like men."


Men are more emotional than women, my heart bleeds for the men. Although my heart has been broken many times by a man, God softened my heart towards...the men. Vulnerability is something that a man wouldn't normally grow up learning about, trying to be a "man" since birth they hide their emotions. They become numb, only sharing themselves physically but not emotionally. Now they are finally awake, the moment we as women have all been waiting for. But the women are now asleep, in their pain and exhaustion. THE MEN. WANT LOVE. TRUE GENUINE LOVE.
