"Since God could not be everywhere, He created women!" For centuries, the battle of the sexes has been at a constant. Women have always been considered inferior, when in reality men cannot function without them. There are many differences between men and women but women complete the male sex and make up for the characteristics men fail to have. Women are passionate, nurturing, social and patient human beings who make this world a better place to live in! It was once said, "emotions are the furnace of the brain." A woman's natural emotional expressions stem from their empathy, one's capacity to experience and understand the feelings of others. Both men and women feel a variety of emotions in their lives; both feel them with intensity and regularity. Yet the ability to express these emotions is one of the many special characteristics of a woman. Men always restrain their feelings, where as women express them on a daily basis.

How many times have women remained patient with their husbands while they try to fix something which quite frankly does not need to be fixed? Women have to put up with the numerous "Tim the Tool Man Taylor's" of this world. How does a woman put up with so much and still remain sane? Through patience, and large amounts of it, might I add! ...read more.


When psychologists reviewed six large surveys of gender differences conducted between 1960-1992, it was found that females excelled at several language skills in all three decades. Men speak more when they are in a formal group, particularly in a mixed group of men and women. Women on the other hand, do more talking at home and when they are with other women to strengthen connections with family or friends. When I was given my first cell phone, my cell phone bills added up to one hundred and thirty to one hundred and fifty dollars a month. When my brother was given his first cell phone, his cell phone bills never exceeded the limit he was allowed to use. With every woman there lives a powerful force, filled with good instincts, passionate creativity, and ageless knowing which represent the instinctual nature of women.
