I just want you to know that I cannot wait for a man to tell that he loves me when the feeling is mutual. I’ll meet him and profess my love to him.

That’s close to what my friend told me some years ago when we were faced with whether it was okay for a woman to woo a man. Before I continue, I’d love to state that I will be very sensitive to whatever I’m going to express on Daily Wisdom Words Picture Prompt today because it is about gender. I know you know that the argument of whether it is plausible for a woman to woo a man in the society which is not within the norms of humanity can be really painful and somewhat frustrating. If that’s the case then we may have to take a long ride into the inequality of the sexes in the world.

See this: Unashamed (a poem)

Trust me, if we do that many people that that you know as advocate of gender equality would be found wanting for sexism. Well, that’s not where I’m headed. Take a look at the picture above. The anonymous woman- could be you- is kissing a man so passionately that he in no time may pass out. The implication is that if the society wants to believe in equality of gender, then, this so-called restriction in emoting ones feeling should take the long ride to oblivion. But, it comes with a price.

Man’s solution to a problem is a problem.

On a more lighter note, combination of woo and man or men spells out wooman and woomen…in other words, women woo men. Hahahahaha😊

Let’s talk about it today. Can a woman woo a man? Do you find it natural, unnatural or unnaturally naturally? I want to know. Tell me.

Can a woman woo a man in today’s day and age
Many reasons why yes would take up a page
A man is a person as natural as another
Doesn’t matter which invites to be their lover
There nothing unnatural when love is concerned
We all have a fear of being spurned.
The most natural thing to kiss a man
At the spur of the moment without a plan.

Find your woo tonight
She knows how to dance with you
Appraising men and women
You wonder at her glances
She’s already got you now.

Hmmmm, we live in a society in which it’s unnatural for a woman to woo a man
Unlike men who woo women with things that all eyes can see, women woo men in diverse ways it could be through her voice, her smile, her eyes, she may not necessarily buy him gifts or take him out but her appearance alone is louder than her voice.
Although it’s unnatural but women woo men in different ways that isn’t known except to the individual
