“Men and Women are very different” Don Murray
“Well of course!” Marilyn Monroe
“I like you the way you are and I don’t care how you got there” Don Murray
“That’s the sweetest thing anyone has ever said to me” Marilyn Monroe
Sometimes the flu can be a good thing. Trapped in my bed, with Netflix, I watched the classic
BUS STOP, 1956
As a gentleman, Don Murray, drove me nuts for most of the movie to the point I wanted to punch him, as his character is supposed to.
As a man, Marilyn entranced me, even beyond the grave. Sometimes I wonder if the sadness in her eyes wasn’t just acting.
But I realized a few important things…
No woman ever wants to see her man fight (or worse lose if he does). But in the depth her heart, she wants to know he fight to the death for her.
Ladies, just FYI, any gentleman would fight to the death for you, without a second thought. Ironically, it may be easier than talking about our feelings.
Guys, try talking it out a bit more, it hurts less than fighting and she’ll respect you more for it. She knows you’d fight for her but she’d rather you’d just spent time telling her what’s really going on. (If she wants to see you fight, you need a new lady.)
True love doesn’t care where you’ve been, who you’ve been with or what your history is. As a friend once told me, “we know you boys have histories, but it’s your future we’re interested in!”
Gentlemen, like you, she has a past. It can’t be changed, but it made her who she is. Did she screw up, date some losers, probably, but so did you. Get over it.
Ladies, don’t ask questions you don’t want to know the answer to. Trust me on this. If you love him his past shouldn’t matter either.
Marilyn Monroe was a terribly underrated actress. Her life shows beauty can be a curse.
- Men be the reason she wakes up smiling, not the reason she cries at night. Ladies, realize we’ve got a heart also, careful with it!
