This topic has been doing the rounds in my head, from the time I heard about it. But I got time to attend to it, finally. 🙂
Anyway, don’t you think that this is too much of a generalisation on the word WOMEN ????
The same woman, wants different things based on the role she plays at that moment.
As a student, she wants to make her teacher and school proud of her achievements.
As a young teenager, she wants to have her first crush, she also wants to get good scores to get into her course of choice.
As a workaholic, she wants to get the promotion, which is due to her.
As the woman in love, she wants her man to be the perfect one for her.
As a young bride, she wants to be treated as the Queen, by her beloved.
As a mother, she wants the whole world to know how proud she is to be a mother.
As a cook, she wants to out beat her mom and grand mom in her cooking skills.
As a wife, she wants happiness and peace to be a constant companion in her household.
As a daughter, she prays for the health and happiness of her parents.
As a daughter-in-law, she wishes for a great rapport with her in-laws.
As an entrepreneur, she wants her company to be in the top companies of the country.
As a fitness freak, she wants to eat right and be fit and healthy the full life.
As a person full of life, she wants to have a good time with friends too.
As a bookworm, she wants to read as many books possible, in her life.
As a blogger, she hopes to write great posts and get maximum comments.
As a baker, she wants to bake the best of the cakes and be proud to share it with friends and family.
And there are many more roles still….
The roles donned by the woman are many and the wants are also many. But the common line in every role is the passion with which she handles things. It’s this passion for things, that makes her want more and more of something. And that’s the reason she MULTI TASKS. And isn’t she the best in doing it ????
Not only does she wants to satisfy her inner soul, the woman desires for greater happiness for the loved ones around her. And the desires are as varied as black and white.
Is there anything wrong in wanting different things than always wanting for some sports channel and a drink in hand ????
Sometimes, I wonder, the whole human race is looking for peace and happiness. And while searching for these, they fall prey to different addictions. And forget the true search criteria “Happiness”.
The men may find their Happiness, in an absolutely satisfying job, in a football / cricket match or a drink with friends or by working hard towards their goal, or saving to buy the sports car or the SLR camera – there are these few defined things which make men happy. (May be you can add one or more reasons here, which I missed). Because, in the heart of a man, lies only the basic needs for a man and it has got nothing to do with the role he plays, like a son, father, workaholic, husband. There are needs for a man too, but it certainly is not based on the role he plays. It’s a need that goes beyond the role – so its singular by nature and maybe well-defined for particular men.
But women want different things based on the role they play at that moment. So, it’s the complexity of the roles she plays, that the wants and needs keep varying.
So, there’s no point in searching for a one word answer to the question “What Women Want ?” The answer is as complex as the roles a woman plays in her life !!!!
