A topic that sparked my curiosity..

**Rose Royce plays in the background**

Lately, I’ve had way too much time on my hands to think.  I’ve thought about everything I wanted to think about and everything I didn’t want to think about. Sometimes my thoughts stem from random places, like twitter, Facebook and NPR.

Today Twitter is the winner.  The trending topic #whatdowomenwant.  I cringed when I saw it but I couldn’t NOT look at it.  Besides, as the biggest hater known to men in the Midwest and now the Eastern Seaboard, I just have to know what people think that women want so I can tell them how wrong they are.

**”Wishing on a Star” goes off, “I’m Going Down” storms in**

I carefully read through the results and find that this trend can be traced back to Usher.  I’m sure he can speak on the behalf of all women near and far of what it is that we want.  I texted five men, asking them to weigh in the topic.  Only ONE responded.  And I’m sure that the one that responded just picked one or two words out of a veil of thin air.  “Women want attention”.  I guess that’s because I chose to text this in the midst of Sunday Night Football…it’s not like the Cowboys were winning anyway. I have full faith and confidence that it’s never a good time to address what women want.  “Security.” Hmmm. Do men not want security too? So I asked what security entailed and I got, “safe, accountable, faith in the future”.  However, I have to give this subject credit; he answered and no one else has.  Nevertheless, being Anastacia, I think he looked at the phone, sighed and came up with the answer that he thought would occupy my time the best.  Anyway.

The only word I like in the aforementioned answer is “accountable”.  If you’re unfamiliar with the term “accountable” or the concept of ‘being accountable’, please read up on it. Chances are, if you don’t know what accountable means, you probably aren’t.  I think of all of the words in his answer, it’s the hardest one for people to do on a consistent basis. I don’t think being accountable is easy for either sex.  Neither is being reliable.  I still have no other answers from ‘real men’.

**”Un-thinkable (I’m Ready)” plays now**

Yawning, I go back to Twitter to see what the trend is.  It’s not pretty.  Seems as though a third of the responses are sexual.  Sex?! Please. Next, one-third is men saying, “hell if I know,” which is a great yet accurate answer.  The rest of the responses are men and women saying that women just wanna be loved, cherished and respected.  To be honest, it’s a topic that trends quickly.  The top tweets are ” just to be loved and respected by that right man”, and “to feel like they’re the only woman in the world”.  The next tweet says, “I don’t know, but I’m pretty sure it’s not Mel Gibson.” Wow.  That last one is true.

I’m thinking that all of the answers are correct and incorrect.  How could I expect someone to nail it on the head for me? I’m just one woman.  If you want to know what a particular woman wants, please ask her.  I’m sure she won’t hesitate to answer.  Like all things Anastacia, my answer varies from minute to minute, day-to-day.  But today, right now, all I can tell you is that this woman wants everything and nothing and someone to know the difference between the two.  Good night.  Happy early Monday.  The trash man awaits me in the morning.
