Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus (and don’t you know it)!

9781435118645_p0_v1_s260x420My friend and I planned a girls night out for this past Wednesday night (March 26th).  We decided to see the one-man comedy show at the Aronoff Center in Cincinnati Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus” which is based on the book of the same name written by John Gray.

As we sat in the auditorium waiting for time to pass and the show to start, we chatted about everything from the Salvador Dali Museum, to family and dating, as well as any musical concerts and stand up acts we’ve previous attended.  I looked around the theater as the seats were filling up and thought to myself that my friend and I might very well be the only “female” couple in the theater as many seats were occupied by male/female couples.

Its Showtime

The lights dimmed and the noise level lowered as darkness fell over the crowd.  Our entertainer of the evening “Peter Story” comes on stage doing some sort of a “I can’t really dance so I’ll just move and be funny about it” dance.  I think he may have actually thrown in a 1970s “robot” move or two.

Men are from Mars - Women are from VenusAs the evening progressed we laughed, learned a lot about Peter and Megan’s (his wife) relationship. Peter did an excellent (an quite entertaining) job in explaining the differences between men and women’s brains and how we process information.  Without giving too much away, I’ll share a little piece of info Peter shared with the audience.

Women need and want from men: Attention and Understanding

Men need and want from women: Trust and Approval

Guys, Peter gave an easy way for you to remember what a women needs; and that is done by referring to the Periodic Table of Elements where Attention and Understanding = AU which is the chemical symbol for “gold.”  Guys, treat your ladies like gold and you’ll be good to go.

Ladies, oh ladies…you already know how to be in the continual good graces of your guy.  Yes, yes you do, it is right there in their needs/wants of Trust and Approval = TA.  Girls, give your guy a little T&A and you’ll forever be treated like gold? 😉

A Little Explanation Please

I have to share with you a quick story about the elderly couple sitting to my right.  As Peter explained the AU and TA examples the audience was roaring with laughter.  Then in my peripheral vision I noticed the lady sitting on my right lean closer to her partner (who I would safely say was well into his 80s) and in a loud whisper she said “it means T-s and A-s.”  I lost it!  I laughed so hard my stomach started hurting, I had tears running down my face and found it somewhat challenging to regain my composure.  Peter’s explanation was hilarious, but hearing the old gal explaining it to her fella….that was priceless!!

I recommend that you get online and get tickets for this show, grab your partner or make it a girls night out.  You won’t regret it!  I promise!!!
