Over dinner in the company of some amazing women last Saturday night it occurred to me that most bright and creative women I know are fools in love.
Indeed, there I was in the company of intelligent women talking and laughing about – well…everything! Interesting viewpoints with great company, scrumptious food and wine. There was never a dull lapse in the conversation. "What could be finer?" I wondered, enjoying the moment.
It began to dawn on me that while these bright women are successful in their careers and had the ability to sustain loyal friendships, they toss and turn in their private lives. Even the “happily” married ones feel quietly stifled, choked by the injustice that women are forced to deal with in their relationships.
And I compare these women to other less intelligent friends who claim to be passionately in love and who enjoy meaningful relationships. "Lesser" women who have little to say beyond leg waxing, recipes and gossip (yawn) are privy to sustaining more lasting liaisons with the opposite sex.
