One thing that I find humorous about men and women is that men are typically more forgiving than women are. A guy has a disagreement with another guy, they get mad and two minutes later they are friends again. However, women will not talk to each other for years or ever again. This has made me wonder, why are men more willing to give second chances compared to women?
This thought came to me the other day when someone who was a friend contacted me about getting together. I hesitated about meeting them for the fact that our last conversation was not a good one, but something told me to go ahead and meet them. I soon realized that things could have been settled years ago, but something inside me stayed mad.
Maybe our reasoning is attached to some emotion, our ego, or that relationship wasn’t supposed to last. Nonetheless, something keeps us from moving past certain issues. Since women are more emotion based compared to men it makes sense that we would hold on to emotions like anger. Women involve their feelings and emotions in many of their relationships.
In the end when someone feels that those feelings are being jeopardized it’s possible for the view on the relationship to change. I lost time with someone over not putting aside feelings and giving a second chance. That time is gone but the future can be different.
