Posted by: andrew william Post(s) by this bloggerRecently the Young Adults in my church organized a gathering of the gender sexes to have an evening of growing in the understanding and celebration of the differences between both sexes. The ambiance was an interesting set up with 5 women to a table of three men. As the ratio of women to men is normally higher in most places.
It was a dimly lit setting with candlelight and drinks and cup cakes to go around. We were shown 3 movie clips depicting men in different roles. One of the movies was 300. Questions were opened to the floor for questions and games were one line statement where if you agree to the statement, you stand. The questions were such as, should men cook? Is Brad Pitt Sexy? (To which almost all women stood up) Do men have big Egos? Etc
There so many fishes in the water, which do you want?
The evening was chaired by my pastor and his wife who explained what is a real man and a real woman. Which was interesting compared to a lot of views and opinions of many. They instilled some real values in looking for a partner. For the men, the list goes as follows;
1) Strength-Character/ leadership/not afraid of rejection
3) Vulnerability-Being honest with ones weakness
4) Extra Ordinary Depth-certain innate qualities like honesty, integrity, and compassion for the poor or underprivileged
The issue of the metro sexual man came up. Most women preferred the metro sexual man. (The role model would be personalities like Brad Pitt, George Clooney etc).
