Women of times past were seemingly taught how to be the “social glue” in groups (families included and especially so). They would work to make sure that everybody was felt included in what what happening and they belonged. I benefited much from this as a child, being an introvert and all. In fact, to me, this seemed to be one of the best features of women.
But at University, I noticed that my age peer women had no interest in “group anything”. That is, unless it lead to tingles (though I did not think in terms of tingles at the time). These women might look appealing physically to me; but I was turned off by the fact that they seemingly would make poor wives and mothers. Probably if these women had shown more grace I would have tried harder while in my 20’s. I wonder if other men were/are like me on this.
This attribute (grace) is actually quite useful to women. They should cultivate it. Uniting groups, making them feel at ease with each other, etc, can benefit women by essentially bringing themselves under the protective umbrella (be it physical, financial, social, etc) of the group that they helped create. And in the near future, many women may need this.
