click here to pat back
So do you think women tend to need more pats on the back than men do? Perhaps we read pats on backs differently, I mean maybe we don’t even get it when men mean to encourage us? Or maybe they don’t bother because they believe our shiny veneer finishes, you know, the cool exteriors, the lipstick, the laughter. I know that I experience my women friends as far more consistent backpatters than most of my male friends, anyway, and it is such a relief to have those pats. I’ve had this conversation quite a few times lately, and now Hilde’s pretty much blogged it, with an example.
