|"Think Like A Man, Too" arrives in 2014.|
I saw this movie on Blu Ray a few months ago and it was pretty entertaining. The story wasn't bad and it had a lot of funny parts. The ton of product placement in the movie got old, but that's just the world we live in these days.
However, what I didn't like about the movie is the message that it sent: the movie, like the book, basically insinuates that if a woman thinks like a man, then she can find a good one. Well, I think that's the farthest thing from the truth if I ever heard it.
Don't get me wrong. There is something to be learned from the movie. Most of it are things that the average adult should know already, however, sometimes we all need to get back to the basics on things. Dr. Phil wouldn't have a job if it weren't for people needing the basics from time-to-time. But, when it comes to what a man wants...
A man wants a woman who thinks like a woman.
I mean, surely that makes sense right? If a man wanted a woman who thought like a man, then he would probably date a man. A woman who is plotting and scheming her every move based on how I would think probably shouldn't be with me in the first place. After all, if you have to keep a step ahead of the man you're dating to prevent him from getting over on you, then he's not a good guy in the first place.
Dating can be pretty hard. Finding two people on the same page isn't easy and I get that. Men have so much leverage these days because there are plenty of women willing to make things easy for us. That makes it harder for the respectable women to date and that's a shame. The respectable woman has to either wait on a man to decide that he's not about the games any more or work twice as hard to get his attention.
I know that it sounds like I'm hating on the movie, but I'm not. The movie isn't bad. However, it's just that: a movie. It's entertainment. Yet, I've seen so many women, especially on social networks, treat it as if it's a documentary. All of them are pretty much still single, too.
Do you feel like "thinking like a man" can help you land a good one (or change a bad one)?
