The Awesome Power of Women
Whether they will admit it or not, women possess an awesome power over men. If not over all men, then most certainly over the vast majority.
I have often pondered at what age the average female discovers this power that she has and begins to use it to her advantage. I suspect it is at quite a very young age. Perhaps even before puberty.
The strange thing is that men subconsciously know of this Woman’s Power and yet willingly permit them to use it. I would even go as far as to say that men enjoy succumbing to this power without realizing it is being used. That is not to say that men will always be rewarded in some way for allowing themselves to succumb. This awesome power is not usually used to reward men although at times there can be rewards. It depends on why a woman has chosen to use it and the end results.
Perhaps I should explain by giving an example of this power being used to great advantage. A woman was driving her car and jumped a red light. A patrol cop saw her and pulled her over. He told her of the traffic offense that she had committed. The woman, without any hesitation, smiled sweetly at the officer and said, “But officer, how else could I get a closer look at you?”
Can you see that awesome power at work here? The officer knew that she was using her power but still succumbed to it. He was flattered. He grinned at her and just gave her warning and let her go. Had the driver been a male, he would not have got off so lightly.
The more a woman uses this awesome power the more experienced she becomes at getting what she wants from a man. That leads to greater power to manipulate men. It is usually done in a very subtle way when used against a man she knows little about. As she learns more about him she becomes bolder and exercises her power more frequently.
Should a woman see a man that she would like to get to know better, all she needs to do is smile at him with a certain look in her eyes. That simple expression will send a message to him that she is interested in him. It is far more powerful than when a man smiles at a woman. Women are used to men smiling at them and attempting to “chat them up”. They take it all in their stride. Not so the other way round.
When a relationship develops between a man and a woman she will, at first, exercise her power with caution and with subtleness. She has to learn what works and what doesn’t work with a particular man. Having discovered what does work, she will then advance by increasing her power. Usually, for a woman, being in a relationship means that there is a possibility of it becoming a lasting one that ends in marriage. That is generally the ultimate goal a woman has. She seeks the security that marriage can offer.
It is an unfortunate fact that once a woman succeeds in snaring her man and marries him, she will often attempt to use her awesome power to change him. I don’t think even she realizes what she is doing when this happens. She tends to forget that she was attracted to her husband for what he was and changing him into something he is not can lead to quarrels and resentment. She could become dissatisfied when she finds that her husband has become weak and willing to conform to her every wish. Even if it is only for some peace and quiet.
It takes a very wise woman to know when to stop using her awesome power.
