I have never really understood what “feminine” means, though after reading Mrs Andelin's book I have the impression that “feminine” means “idiot”. I'm not sure why a man would prefer a woman to behave like an idiot, but it's something that I feel no woman should have to fake in order to get the attention of a man. In any case, I feel that “feminine” whatever it is, must be compatible with behaving like a rational human being, surely a woman does not have to check her brains in at the door in order to be considered feminine.
It is my personal and deeply held belief that there is nothing a woman can do to attract a man other than be herself. This is based on my own personal experience and that of other women I have known. I am convinced that a man will either like you as you are, or he won't like you at all. Putting on some strange act in order to attract him, whether it's beating on his chest with your fists, stamping your foot, pouting, rationing the amount of sex he can have with you (a very un-takeninhand policy, that one, judging by what I've read on here), simply isn't going to work. If you don't naturally feel inclined to do these things, it's no good. I don't believe you can teach someone how to be feminine or masculine or anything else. Either you feel a natural inclination to behave in a certain way, or you don't.
And does anyone really want to be with a person who is forever worrying about how feminine or how masculine they are? Isn't it better to just get on with life and let your degree of femininity or masculinity take care of itself?
