Girls need affection

Guys need sex

When a guy knows he’s not getting it

The warning bells scream next…

Girls think of the future

Guys hold onto “now”

I think the future scares them

So that “talk” they won’t allow

Girls are more “emotional”

They express how they feel

Guys are more conserved

With you they can’t be real

When girls say that they love you

They mean just what they say

When a guy says he loves you

It’s just to make you stay

To girls sex= feelings

For guys no, not so much

For them it could be casual

Just want a girl to touch

Girls hold on to ex’s

It seems they can’t let go

Guys have called it logic

To move on with the flow

Girls are hurt by one guy

Then think they’re all the same

But guys, they often prove this

New guy, same hurtful game

In breakups loss is different

Both can feel upset and vex

Girls ‘cause their hearts are broken

Guys because there’s no more sex

Sex versus affection​

The battle of the sexes

But both need each other

To reach life’s great apexes

So let’s agree on one thing

The word “need” is overused

There’s sex and there’s affection

I wonder what each sex will choose…

This is a poem I wrote when I was 19 years old and it’s sad to think that at 26, I feel the same way about certain aspects of it. I know not all guys are the same but as the line goes- “guys they often prove this, new guy same hurtful game.”

As for my current dating life, things have definitely quietened down. I’ve just come back from a girls holiday in Malaga which was amazing! Soo much fun. I’ve signed up to a gym and am mentally psyching myself up to go and to start eating healthily… I ate a chocolate bar last night so it’s going well 

Mr X and I had a little difference of opinions while discussing a racial topic last night and the conversation ended with him saying he’s going to bed, which I didn’t like. We were having such a nice chat about the music festival I’m going to with my cousins and sister too…

Oh please! He would’ve been shitting himself 🙄 

Everything feels like it’s on his terms, if he wants to meet my fam it’s okay but trust me if I brought it up I’d get- We should remember what this is… This can’t go anywhere… I don’t want to hurt your feelings. 

He’s a mind fuck!

🙄 I may love talking to you, spending time with you and of course your dick, but for right now, in this moment, Mr X, you can fuck off!

-Love, Autumn x

    “He’s a mind fuck” pretty much describes my limited experience with men. Good job, haha.

    I totally do not agree with a lot of it. First off he really cannot spell and that spells danger. 🙂 . Beyond that, as a guy I have so much against girls after I broke up with my last gf. She said all about forever and ever and forced me to say all that but as soon as we were done she jumped on the next cock she found and eventually any cock she could get in europe while I just kept getting deeper and deeper in the hell hole. We play the games because girls start the game. I by complete accident few things about women that holds true over the last century. While reading a book by nobel lauret in physics (Richard Feynmen) to watching Seinfeld in 2017 for the first time to reading books from 2002 to 1880s here is what remains constant: Girls dig assholes. No questions asked. I have been experimenting on this for the last 6 years and everytime without fail whenever I did not play the game I lost the girl and every time I played the game I got the girl but lost all respect for her.

    • 1) Thanks for your opinion. When I first posted this on Facebook years ago, many people (mostly men… Shocker) didn’t agree with it, in fact it led to quite the dramatic debate amongst those who commented. It’s poetry, open to interpretation, people are free to hate it, love it, agree or disagree, I welcome all view points and opinions on my poems.
2) Mr X has dyslexia which is why he misspells words.
3) Sounds like you went through a bad break up and I’m sorry it’s made you bitter
4) As far as I’m aware mature women are not into assholes. Maybe the immature ones or younger girls are. Or… Maybe you have bad taste in women
