I know that a couple of you have had questions in this series of posts and I will answer them, but I want to cover two more things we women do: over analyze and have emotional fantasies!
Today will look at what does it mean to over analyze a situation. This was one of my metal mind wasters! Oh, a guy would do something and I'd begin to think, "Why did he do that? Does he like me? What does this mean? Could he be wanting to start a relationship with me?"...and on and on and on and on and on and on!
Then I ask my sisters or friends what they thought and I'd begin all over!
I wasted so much time thinking about what he did and I'd read into everything he was doing or saying. What I have found is guys general don't do this. But women can fall into this trap of spending way too much mental energy thinking about what a guy did or said.
There was a guy who heard me talk about women being a little obsessive with marriage, relationships, etc. And he asked, "Are all women so obsessed with this stuff?" I told him to take a poll! He came back a month or so later and said, "Yes, all women over think this marriage stuff!"
So what is it that makes us over think and over analyze?
Do we have a fear of not being married, so we think that by thinking about marriage and keeping it in the front of our thoughts it will happen? I believe that my main reason for over thinking was that I so desired the emotional affection of a young man I was looking for it outside of God's timing.
Why do you think women tend to over analyze a situation or an action by a young man?
