Are women or men easier to please?
Seriously. Could there even be such a question? Seems like the answer would be obvious.
Put it to my friends and came away with a smile. Boys and girls, we all came up with mostly the same answer - surprisingly enough!
I do believe girls are more eager to please ( can already hear the militant feminists roaring :) ) but guys are certainly easier to please as well. Not to be utterly biased but sometimes when I hear my single galpals speak of their significant others, I have to pity the adoring boytoys. Certainly not easy to please these touchy high-maintenance goddesses.
In general guys are easier to please - just give a man a gorgeous babe with hooters galore holding a barrel of fried chicken in hand and a football in the other - and I think that men would be well pleased for days on end. Or easier yet, toss him a PS3 / Wii and you might not see him surface for the next few months at the least.
Hell, I'd take him even with the crutch!
Do you see the size of those guns!
Unlike us guys though, girls are a bit more demanding. Especially when it comes to close relationships. Give a girl a gorgeous man and soon she'll expect some change. Maybe not the first time she meets him. Maybe not even the second night.
But definitely in a year ( possibly spurred on by the advice by manifold women magazines on How To Better Your Man ), she'll wake up early in the morning to gaze at the man beside her, somehow discern an almost indiscernible flaw in her man - then slowly distort it into unimaginable proportions and then start thinking... 'Hmm... maybe he could do this differently.' Then our progressive lil miss will start thinking of him as a household project, a challenging fixer-upper with a solid foundation.
All while her poor groggy boyfriend's probably still wondering whether he's got serious bedhead.
Give her a Sensitive New Age Guy and she'll want some tough no-holds-barred machismo, some grab-em-and-slam-against-the-wall. Give her a Silent Tough Streetbrawler instead and she'll want some sweet sentimental stanzas, thoughtful conversations and long walks in the park. Give her a hardworking gardener contented with his lot who gives her all his time and she'll push him to be an overworked city banker. Give the gal a high-powered workaholic attorney instead and she'll want more leisure time as a couple.
Honestly, why pick the perfect guy only to change him?
My point of view? If I had Chris Evans wet and naked in a towel - with a yet unpublished bestseller in hand, I'd be a happy man :) I'm easily pleased too.
