I know, you’re not shocked at all. It really isn’t a surprise, but it keeps getting reinforced in my mind.
Last night and this morning Lindsey went to a slumber party/retreat to kick off her Women’s Development Program. They played games, stayed up late, and spent a lot of time getting to know each other. It sounds like her group is well on their way to forging deep connections.
On the other hand, last night I went to the kickoff for the Men’s program. We grilled steaks, had some drinks, talked and hung for three hours and too our leave. We had some great conversations, and actually learned a lot about each others’ backgrounds, but it was nowhere near as deep, or long, as the women.
I’m not sure there is any deep significance to this beyond my lame title above. Men and women are wired very differently, and it is a good thing for me to keep in mind in relating to Lindsey.
