As a motivational speaker on relationships I am on the constant look-out for ways to strengthen the bonds between people, especially in love relationships. Accordingly, when I ran across this quote by Diane Keaton (one of my ALL TIME favorite actresses in the world), it really made me stop and think. And I ended up with way more questions that I did answers. So I'm posing these questions to you, my favorite blog readers. I want to know what you think. I've got a bazillion swirling thoughts, many of them contradicting the ones that went right before…
About her failed romances with Woody Allen, Warren Beatty and Al Pacino, Ms. Keaton said, "Managerial skills are necessary to handle men like that, and I'm not the managerial type."
Please, oh wise ones, help me process this. What do you think she meant by this? Specifically, does she mean by managerial skills? Can you help me define exactly what "skills" she is referring to? What would an example be? Do you think good managerial skills are needed in a relationship? Or are they just needed to handle "men like that?" And when she says "Men like that," does she mean difficult men?
I'm sooooo curious. What do you think?
