I’d go even farther and say what passes for women’s intuition is often nothing more than man’s negligence.
I hate surprises. I can deal with anything as long as I can see it coming. To be blindsided hurts worse. Causes more damage.
Omission in my eyes is dishonesty and I’m not sure at what stage during prenatal development that men became genetically wired to believe that to omit, exclude, or fragment any part of the full story is not a lie.
Relationships work when both parties are transparent. Crystal clear. Opaque. There is no room for misunderstanding, misinterpretation or misrepresentation.
I’ve always been one of those “tell me the truth even if it hurts” kind of women. I’d rather you be honest than convince yourself that you are somehow protecting or saving me from… pain [you].
Do you promise to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, so help you God?
So help us, God? Give me the road signs and I can deal. Tell me that there are curves ahead, things are going to get slippery, rocks falling, expect delays. At least that way I can respond to the road conditions and not lose control.
