But it is a damn good question. Both men and women would be happier if they could figure out the answer to this seemingly simple question.
I can only answer the question on behalf of myself. A well journeyed, perhaps brilliant in certain ways, 45 year old, once retired attorney, changing the way law is practiced from a small Northern Michigan town named Traverse City. I hesitate to say that I am married because I tend to think of my relationship as something more than that. I have three boys: 11, 9, and 7, Echo Storm, Fielding Mars and Apollo North respectively. I tend to think that I was put here on earth to make people think. With my father’s sense of irreverence and defiance confirmed inside me, I set about my day with the effect of causing the world to think. I used to think that I was a lightning bolt. I was almost a tree for decade. But I am back being the lightning bolt, although this time I feel pretty good about things.
What do men want? It’s just a theory, but I think men just want to be loved. There’s still the little boy running around hanging on their mom’s skirt. I have lots of support for my theories. I’ll share them with you sometime. In the meantime, I challenge you to answer the question…What do men want?
