A man needs a woman for very different reasons from the one’s that a woman needs a man for. Existentially, a man simply wants to go back to the womb where he came from.
That’s why he is forever running after the woman.
That’s the significance of him penetrating a woman during sex. He is simply trying to go back home where it was very comfortable.
A woman doesn’t have such an existential need to go back home. She is carrying the home within herself. All she needs is to feel safe when she is carrying life in her “home”. That’s why women are more earthly than men. They are the homemakers.
Now you understand why a woman will always gauge your earning power before she commits to you. She is unconsciously gauging your ability to keep her safe when she is pregnant and helpless.
It has nothing to do with gold-digging or such nonsense. It is purely a natural phenomenon. It is for the same reason she will leave you when you cant provide and seek a man who can. It has nothing to do with love.
In almost all cultures, only women turn to prostitution, and they couldn’t become prostitutes if there was no demand for their services. The demand is created by man. If you hear of a male prostitute, you will be surprised, but to hear that a woman is a prostitute is no news at all. Why?
Now, as women become more empowered economically, the terms of engagement between men and women are changing.
If a woman can take care of herself economically, what’s your role in her life as a man? Now love will take a very different trajectory and meaning between the sexes.
It will no longer be need-based. Men, educate yourselves on the new consciousness evolving in the world, otherwise, you will become useless to women.
