I don't paint my nails (only toes in the summer)

I've never had a facial

I've never had a manicure or pedicure

I get my hair cut about once every 4 months or so

I've had one (pre-natal) massage which was heaven, about 4 years ago.

I only wear make-up on the weekends, if that.

I despise women who buy a new outfit for every outing.

Man, I like you.

I have never had a pedicure. The idea of someone being that close to my grody feet really grosses me out.

If I ever get the urge to try some new make-up, like eyeshadow, I laugh when it's on my face, think I look like some kind of whore/clown, and immediately wash it off. If I do wear make-up, it's only powder foundation, pencil eye liner, mascara, and some vaseline or chapstick on the lips.

I usually HAVE to buy something new to wear when something comes up, unless I can just wear my uniform. I own nothing but jeans and t-shirts. I try to limit my appearances to places where my uniform is appropriate.

The idea of going shopping is akin to having trash duty on the side of the highway. Going to the mall always depletes my love of humanity.

Any chick who will not get her hands dirty should not bother talking to me. I might kick her in the shin just for laughs.

I hate love stories, and the phrase "make love" is enough to make me gag.

Weddings are a waste of money, and so are flowers. Unless you are gonna grow them in the garden.

Scrapbooking is for people like my sister. Enough said.

This is kinda fun. I could go on forever!

Well, when I Do apply the toenail polish, it looks like it was done by a blind person.

I HATE Harlequin romances and too, loathe the phrase "make love" and the term "lover". Either way, it's still sex.

I do not wear eyeshadow unless it is in a natural earth tone, as anything else makes me feel as though I should be working the street corner. I NEVER wear foundation, it feels like I am wearing a mask at Halloween. I wear only mascara with a touch of eyeliner, rarely powder, a bit of cream blusher and a hint of lipgloss.

I do not waste money on the "fake bake". I am outside enough with my 3 little boys.

I am most comfortable in jeans or jeans shorts and a simply shirt, with flip-flops. I only own one basic black skirt.

I would love just once to have an excuse to dress up since I will no longer ever be pregnant again. (My last excuse was a friends wedding, at which I was 9 months miserably preggers).

I love to drink beer and enjoy NASCAR and NFL football.

I do not own anything with flowers on it, but LOVE flowers of all kinds, as I too am a gardener. I am partial to the peony and hydrangea for their large blooms. I don't mind dirty hands.

I believe that males and females are cursed with approval by others with women being even more so. If either don't get it they will have problems. Unless they get rid of the notion that they do, though it is a struggle to do so, it must be done. Approval by others with males and females will vary obviously. Women need to feel loved and cherished and when they do they will thrive. But not all women are and I think then they start looking outside themselves and comparing themselves to other women. Some other women are more beautiful, attractive, sexy, etc and thus standards are set up in woman's mind that cannot be reached. The rope they can now hang themselves with and make their lives miserable. I’ve found it very common for women to blow off any kind of compliments they are given but for the woman on her feet accepts them graciously.

"not having been shown any favoritism by males (fathers when growing up?), and a sense of feeling betrayed by women (their mothers?),"

I think you are right here. Kids that aren't shown love by their parents will have problems. This experience will help them the rest of their lives, and that is what I believe they will not settle for less in most cases as they grow older.

"they gravitate toward other females who suffer the same resentments."

This I believe only propounds the problem. This should be turned around to how to help themselves out of what they’re in.

I think your analogy of the cat is quite appropriate. Cats are control freaks which really means, like women, are very security conscious. If they get into a situation that’s not to they’re liking getting away from it is the only way out. Maybe if women did go wild it would more to men’s liking LOL!

Society is running a major campaign to drive both of the sexes away from their bases. Femininity and masculinity are being attacked to the extent both sexes think they want something that inside they can’t handle. A metro man is not what a woman needs. She needs a man to be a man, able to give security and love. A woman that acts somewhat like a man isn’t going to satisfy a man’s inward needs and desires. Geez, what happened to dresses? They are the ultimate in feminine attire in my mind. A short skirt sends the wrong message, and jeans/pants? Freaking everybody wears them.
