If this is true doesn't it call into question a woman's ability to love. Some have suggested that women are indeed incapable of love.

My friend once told me that men give 60% of the love in the relationship and the girl gives 40% maybe that's the reason.

I won't be surprised if the actual tally is 90 to 10

We (men) are the ones that do the toasting, chiking, wooing, galivanting, and all the logistics to get a lady into a relationship, so singing all of the best love songs is an understatement.

My brother you are not lying. And after all that difficult romantic hustle/gymnastics, we are still expected to hustle for money to feed, clothe and house madam and the kids...to be man no easy o!

But do you see anything wrong in your gender (female) basically exhibiting romantic laziness?

Great list bro. And don't forget Luther Vandross, Marvin Gay etc. Omo men are the real romantic of the two sexes. No lie.

I guess they are used to the position of privilege. Basically, they just sit back while the man does all the work - romantic or otherwise. And if you are used to something, its no surprise if you take it for granted.

That's an interesting point. Perhaps it sheds light into the difference in psyche between men and women. I will like to explore this further.

For starters you should give 50% while the man also gives 50%. But, where things stand today, are women even giving 10% not to talk of 50 or 100? It seems sensible to say that in general women are romantically very lazy.

You are right. Legend is an understatement. That's why Africans should stop attacking gay people. Do you think Elton John would have been great if he was born in Africa as a gay man?

The pictures show what women (in general) tend to think that as long as they offer a finely made-up face then they don't have to lift a finger for love. It is an indication of artificial neoteny. Yet, it doesn't not answer the question posed.
Re: Why Is It That Most Of The Greatest Love Songs Were Written/sung By Men? by Nobody: 9:22pm On Apr 11, 2017
Loool. When a man loves truly, he loses himself to it.

No holding back, reason why most of them become vindictive when heartbroken.

Have seen lovestruck guys and I don't want to lose myself to love like that... It's scary embarassed

so your point is that women don't love and are not capable of loving?

My sister I gbadun your analysis you have spoken the absolute truth. That is why I insist men should act like women and play safe. Men should hesitate to commit to women emotionally to avoid stories that touch. But men no dey hear word.

Absolutely. And some of the women here have honestly agreed with me. At the very least it is difficult to argue that among the two sexes women are the most romantically lazy by a long shot.

But you just said to smitten by love is not something you wish for yourself. So why would you wish it on men? That's not very Christian or Muslim or any religion for that matter. So explain yourself.
