A Word to Interpreting Women 101
A lover tries to interpret a word
A lesson on how to interpret women
A Word (English sonnet)
Expressions lost and meaning gone awry
The whispers of our hearts it would deny
And sighs of feelings somehow seem so blurred
So much which makes us one it must imply
So much of what we trust to it deferred
We wander through our silence was it heard
Or was a moment’s soul condemned to die
So here we are with passions so entwined
With this one word to hold some treasure true
And to mere word our all is so consigned
And with it hopes and dreams will see us through
Until eternally we are combined
The word of love will somehow have to do
A lover questions the depth of a word in this English sonnet. Here is a lover for us. Two quatrains are spent expressing the complexity of a word. As the couplets appear, he spends the first two relating the couple's relationship. In the final couplet comes resolve. Yet, with all these words, fourteen lines, our lover only manages to say the word once.
It was strange. In those disco days. In that large flat, our playground, Arlene and I had regained so much, and more, since those dark, bleak days in that small apartment. We were the "prince and princess of love" in the discos clubs we'd frequent. We were "those two lovers" at Lake Chabot on those warm summer weekends. There was the dinning out, the movies, the operas and symphonies, the theater. There was the walks, the picnic, lovers in a canoe, out on the road again, the adventures, and the endless kisses. Arlene and I had a grand life back then. We did almost everything one would expect of young lovers. It was a warm night. Disco was over. Arlene and I were cuddling under the stars. Arlene says to me, "You don't say I love you anymore." It was true! For all we had become. I still loved Arlene very much and she knew it. But strangely, I had misplaced those three words. In the beginning, on my path back to saying, "I love you", wasn't connecting quite right with my feelings. Over time. patience and perseverance I was able to tell Arlene I loved her with some satisfaction. I learned that "Love" was a word for so much more.
As I became more and more a people person I found out that many people don't say, "I love you." At some point in their relationship they stop. In fact, people, in general, don't tell others the positive ways they feel about them: "You're a good friend," "I like working with you," "What a great smile you have," et cetera. Everybody likes compliments. Real, honest compliments. On the other end of the spectrum, many people are tongue tied, when it comes to verbalizing their feelings, especially the positive ones. The ones we like, we need to hear. Maybe we can do better. It all starts here. Help a friend; help a loved one open up. Be an example to others. And as we make the world a better place, Enjoy.

Do you have problems understanding women
Professor of linguistics Deborah Tannen's studies found that men tend to jump from topic to topic, but women tend to talk at length about one topic. There are other subtle communication differences between men and women. To aid in understanding some of these differences, Story of This Life has put together this video to help men better understand those beauties in our life.
So men, get your pencils and paper ready. "Interpreting Women 101"
