I have met some interesting people, I can tell you!
I seem to attract the weird and wonderful and all of them have left an imprint on my mind and have given me so much to think about.
The most recent was someone who decided to tell me their life story…actually it was a love story. You’re probably thinking why ‘ask michelle’, well this is normal and it’s happened so many times that I’m used to it.
People need to talk and that’s a good thing, perhaps it’s easier with someone you’ve never met before as the chances are you will never see them again or there is some kind of force nudging them towards me, who knows?
Anyway, as I’m big on loyalty (even with someone I’ve only met once) I won’t go into detail, but it made me think.
After feeling like the ‘shrink’ from the ‘Sopranos’, I listened seeming detached but really I was totally interested in their story. Finally, once I’d heard the entire tale, I asked the question. What kind of woman do men want?
I understood the answer to be a cross between an innocent servant girl from a Bollywood movie and Aphrodite!
The servant girl: Smelling of detergent and saffron, avoids direct eye contact with the use of her intricately detailed veil and whilst her gaze is low, she allows him to talk without interrupting. She only speaks to ask his name and tells him she likes it. Then, she is silent once more. He wonders if he will ever hear her sweet voice again or if he heard it in the first place. She continues with her chores leaving him dumb founded!
Aphrodite: Smelling of Roses and honey, her veil is on the floor! She also, is silent. Her actions speak a thousand words. She has captured him in more ways than one and she knows it. She wants to be held but takes her pleasure by holding him and it shows. She will lead him to believe that there will never be another woman for him, not in this lifetime or the next.
So, I am sure some of you will have different ideas but ultimately everyone is looking for that same thing. How you find it and where you search is up to you!
