The PURSUIT of happiness

So.....recently, a friend and I were engaged in a conversation about the roles of pursuit. I advised him that men do not pursue anymore. This conclusion has been formed due to my observation that men DO NOT have to pursue anymore. This is evident in the amount of "thirsty" women out here that will do anything and everything to get AND keep a man.

There has definitely been an overwhelming reversal of roles. To the point, that I honestly feel like some men do not know how to pursue anymore. Back in the days, men found pleasure in pursuing women. It's like it gave them a rush or something...and women, WELL.....they absolutely loved it as well....There is an exhilarating high that a woman gets when they put an abundance amount of work into themselves in hopes of being pursued. Like.... drilling over careful details of our appearance(you know that 360 turn that we do in the full-length mirror to ensure that we are not looking too ho'ish to draw the playa/ dog type but showing just enough skin to let the "right type" know, YEP, I'm a lady but I can be a bad girl too)

I believe when we, as women, try to take on the role of the man, more times than few, we come up feeling confused, looking overly anxious and "SHAWT" (aka short). Now, let me say this, I have known some women who have seen what they wanted(the man), took their heels off, put on their sneakers, laced them up and went out there, flipped the script and walked off with the prize(the man AND the ring). For those women, I salute you. However for a shy and traditional girl like myself, ummm...that's not only unthinkable but damn near nerve wrecking just thinking it.

When men actively pursue the woman, it's fulfilling the natural, innate desire in BOTH OF US. The man is acting on what has been instilled in them since the beginning of time and the woman, the same....Women are receivers by nature and we welcome the receipt of serious, genuine, sincere and respectable pursuit by a man. Notice, I said MAN not BOY, we will discuss that later(stay tuned to the next episode). When the roles of pursuit are followed by traditional standards, the PURSUIT of happiness can then be fulfilled and recognized in all it's ingenuity that it's meant to be.....In other words...."Chicks....fall back, be yourself, show that you are indeed interested, acknowledge that you NEED a man for some things and let nature take it's course."
