Man's and Woman's biggest weakness?


What do you regard as the biggest weakness of man and the biggest weakness for woman? For man is it their pride? need for sex? loyalty? our simplicity in terms of emotion? or someting else and for woman their emotion? feelings? their care? or someting else?

Of course not that I am trying to cause a fight between the two , but which of the weaknesses do you think can bring a woman or a man down the easiest?

Woman can be man's greatest weakness. She can also be his greatest strength.

For men it is women.

For women it is themselves.

For men it's thinking with the wrong head. For women it is a credit card in a mall.

I detect a disturbance in the force.

Snakes with boobs old boy, snakes with boobs.

We also need to consider that gay men and women wouldn't have the opposite sex as a weakness. Having witnessed the effects that being in love/lust can have on either sex I'd say the weakness is love itself. There's nothing more pathetic or sorry in this world than a person hopelessly in love and the seducer not caring a jot.

True. It is the Alpha & Omega which all else orbits around.

For women - the desire to please others - this had been encouraged in women for centuries, I would say it was bred in them, and it's a bad stuff - no one is even happy and they blame it on you anyway; you lose yourself and hate yourself and hate the others - bad circle. Less conventions thinking, comeing out of the socially approved role is the way to fight this poison.

For men - men are too one-dimentionally thinking, concentare on one thing at the time and ignore everything else, take it above the limits and lose it one cannot put all eggs in one basket. One cannot live for a career only, or for money-making, or for fun - but most men choose one and hit on it till the very extreme, and then from necessity it cannot bear itself, falls apart, and men are in deep dark depression. Life is more of a mosaic, than of a rail to go on - partaking from many things at ones, but not losing the balance is the best way to confront this male tendency.

Sex, both as "sex" and the "gender" is not a weakness, it's part of life, a boon, a pleasure - it becomes a weakness for men only when they concentrate on it, due to their tendency to concentrate on one thing at a time - then, when it becomes an obsession, a woman can make them lose much - but this is not the fault of the woman who brought a man in this situation, but of the man who let one thing into become it's extreme. There is a Bulgarian proverb "It's not crazy the one who eats the pie, buy the one who gives it to him".

It's a very dangerous thing to let another person be your weakness or your strength - one has to be self-dependent, and the other person comes as a plus, but if taken away cannot be a minus. If one lets another person to be their strength, then in losing this person one is robbed of strength - and this is bad, this is dependency.

Both man and woman should be psychologically independent and self-sufficient, only then they can contribute to the other person without robbing them; and there is nothing worst than a person who is dragging himself on the floor licking yor feet begging for your attention when you are done with him/her, or when you cannot give them what they want.
