Finally, in the 21st
century, we can stop ruminating and surmising about the good, bad and plain ugly qualities that
make a satisfactory partner for the liberated new age woman.
In days of yore, there was talk
that a man had to have the right sort of credentials to become the arm candy of
the day – a tweed jacket, handlebar moustache, a touch of chivalry and a stiff,
upper lip! The “it” in that time used to be “in his kiss” but through
scientific advances we now know that we were being fooled. A functioning brain
was superfluous as the increase in divorces indicate.
Nowadays, we’re so much more
clued up about what a woman wants in a man – healthy DNA!! Yes, it’s genes (not
jeans or manners) that maketh a healthy man. It’s not just his look that
matters but how he’s hard-wired. Can he
serenade you, dance and put on a show? If he can hold his own in those three
disciplines then it’s in his DNA.
We can’t always trust ourselves
to accept that DNA is the reason for his weaknesses but perhaps the boy/man
just can’t help it! He’s kind and gentle, he’s arrogant and pig-ignorant. He
treats you like a princess then orders you to the scullery when he’s had a bad
day. A man of a million mood swings and roundabouts….when’s good…he’s very,
very, good but when he’s bad……he flips!!
You can’t just lay the blame on
poor parenting since his poor mother doesn’t even understand him. It’s a quirk
of nature that can make him a heart throb or a plain, old slob.
So how does
free will affect DNA? It does and it doesn’t. Free will is a bad idea for
anyone indecisive or with low self-esteem. Free will is not so different to “Free Willy” – it’s a
humongous responsibility to use our senses and grey matter to do the right
thing. Often DNA will interfere in this process.
When we want to speak our mind,
we recall the time when expressing an opinion was a dangerous thing. Our fight
and flight tendencies are built into our DNA but courage is sadly not. DNA does
not make us more or less braver than the next person. The unscientific evidence
is that both human and inaction has left an impression on individual DNA.
Darwin’s theory of evolution suggests that humans will adapt to their situation
and react only if there’s a threat to survival.

My conclusion is that his DNA is a threat to your
development. Giving in to his DNA is the slippery relationship slope that
you’ll suffer many an injury on. The worst case scenario is to mingle your DNA
and his but from that you will get some respite once the little darlings go off
Good cop/bad cop….it’s in his DNA. His credentials don’t
mean a thing.
Just stay clear and Don’t
