The gender war over superior sex with a simpler mind seems too inscrutable. However, in all fairness, all that can be said is, women are equally simple in thought and sentiment, if not more.
There is nothing so complicated about them (as opposed to what most men believe), unless they, try to break into the personal, protected, and shielded space. It is sacred than any God in this world. Instead of breaking-in, try to be a part of it by knowing what women want, to understand them better.
It is this emotional drive, which becomes the reason why you fall in love with women. Don't barge into it and label them as inscrutable minds with complex thought processes. Just let them be. If that is what women seem like, it's OK!
The only way men in love, will be able to get to it, is with patience and perseverance. Build a bond of sovereign trust with your girl, and see her open that box of treasures.
Romance Vs Intimacy
This is a debate that is older than mountains. So, while there are some women who prefer physical intimacy over romance, and some want otherwise. In either case, intimate moments play a major role. A woman's body needs to be aroused with a slow sensual seduction. It has to be promised pleasure, and its outcome.
Your listening skills will be put to test now. The one thing women absolutely detest hearing is, "Forget it!". If it was about forgetting, she wouldn't have been fretting over it to begin with. Do not offer solutions saying, 'things will be alright,' because she knows that they have to be. Give her a shoulder to cry on, and be supportive of the circumstance.
To put it simply, allow your girl to build a bond of trust, intimacy, and emotional fidelity with you. They say, fools rush in where angels fear to tread. So, to be her guardian angel, let her come to you. Just be there, and she will be yours.
