Emil, I'm trying to be helpful but no, you are not being clear at all. You're being elusive, evasive and vague. Your responses don't line up with others replies or offers for answers or suggestions. The best I can say at this point is this: We, as a social order, are feeling our way along. There will be some discourse, some craziness, even. Anyone on here that was around in the '60's can vouch for that. But in the end, we as people just have not changed all that much. You can't take a news article to mean anything too general and broad. There are plenty of women out there that want to feel that need. And if you meet one that says she doesn't need a man- so what? Let her not need one. There are plenty that feel that they do.
