There are lots of similarities between men and women … and also lots of differences (far beyond the fact that men can't get pregnant). Here are a few that I have read about (and yes, there are exceptions to every one of them!):
1. The average man has 6 items in his bathroom – a toothbrush, tooth paste, shaving cream, razor, soap, and a towel from Holiday Inn. The average number of items in the typical woman's bathroom is 437 – the vast majority of them totally unidentifiable by most men.
2. Apparently, women don’t think about sex as much as men (an average of 33 times a day according to one researcher).
3. Many men tend to be goal-orientated: focused on doing tasks, solving problems and fixing things. They value competency, efficiency and achievement. Many women tend to be more relationship-orientated: spending time helping, supporting and nurturing. They value love, communication, and relationship.
4. Communication experts tells us that the average woman speaks 25,000 words a day while the average man speaks only a little over 10,000. Marriage counsellor, Gary Smalley, says that the average wife needs 45-60 minutes of meaningful conversation daily, while the average husband only needs 15-20 minutes … 1-2 times per week.
I believe that God created men and women differently – on purpose. His intention was to enhance our lives not to mess them up. Both men and women need to educate themselves so that they understand each other better. Both men and women were created in the image of God and both are required to reflect God's nature accurately. Love, respect and appreciate the opposite gender and treat them as partners in life and ministry.
Finally, have you ever noticed that all of women’s problem’s start with MEN … MEN-opause, MEN-strual pain, GUY-naecologist, and HIS-terectomy.
