"Wondering in Witchita" asks Kelsey:
Can guys ever be romantic without doing it just to get the funky monkey?
Kelsey Kelsey answers:
I'm guessing that you're pretty young, because younger men really don't get the idea of romance. The older men get, the more romantic they get.

There's no use griping about this in endless feminist tracts. It's just they way it is. Guys go from being boys who light firecrackers and break street lamps to men with organs whose sole biological function is to pro-create. Somewhere along the line, they learn what it means to love and be loved.

It's up to us women to guide men towards an understanding of real love.

I have some ideas on how to do this, but first I'd like to hear from you women (and men!) out there. What's been your experience about men learning to be romantic?

Ruth Ruth wonders:
Funkey monkey? Isn't that ice cream?
