Hmm I have been pondering this quite a bit...
I love my pup to pieces and yes I think I do have more patience ect with him lol,
Really, I think it’s due to the crazy world that we live in right now, every thing is so busy, and our pets become somewhat of a sanctuary from the
hassle of life,
Now I come to the man thing, I kinda feel that many men (in know way all) show a lack of compassion these days, Almost becoming desensitized by the
world around them,
I only speak from my own opinion here but I cant sit and watch a child on TV who is starving and still sit there with a packet of crisps in my mouth,
though most men I know just seem to let stuff like that brush over them,
Its hard to explain other that a desensitization, Animals, pets tend to keep the innocence and neediness feeling going,
My pup makes me feel like he needs me to look after him, protect him from the big scary world out there,
It reminds me of feeling useful in world that just seems to not care as much anymore,
I just find that too many fellas and im sure girls too just see so much on TV and around them that you begin not to let it affect you anymore,
There was an example of this some time ago when a major tragedy happened and many said then it was hard to "Feel" the event, it was almost like it
was not real anymore.
Baa im not even sure if im making sense here lol but an interesting question for sure that gets you thinking.
Men feeling less emotional? Women feeling more emotional? Intern rocking the prior balance?
