    Going through that write-up, my impression of the writer was that of a lady who has had quite a number of sad experiences with men; only to discover that you’re a guy. You’re definitely gay!

    So some men dont like to read books. not all women are readers. Neither are we all musical. Here i object…lol. Dont shoot me please

    • lol…Not to worry, I won’t shoot you, but really, talking about music, you neccessarily don’t have to play an instrument, appreciating music is as gratifying as playing an instrument, and thugh it is not scientifically proven, a man, who does not have the patience and emotions to appreciate good music cannot be a good father or husband :)
