Three and a half husbands later I can tell you that you are correct. It is even more so when you have “the face”, please forgive the ego. Men want to be validated and if you are pretty they wish to impress (and know in the biblical sense) simply because you were born with good bones. I gave up talking to men years ago. Only my wonderful girlfriends can see me and actually hear me. Men, mostly, are no longer interesting to me. I love Scheherazade because she saved herself!
