Every man wants to be Superman.
Because being Clark Kent sucks.
Someone might object that Clark Kent and Superman are the same person.
I say, try telling that to Lois Lane.
To Lois, Clark Kent is a nerdy guy that she barely even notices.
Superman, on the other hand, takes her breath away. Her eyes light up when he arrives on the scene, and when he kisses her … she melts. Lois constantly raves about how amazing Superman is and she’ll drop anything just to be with him.
He is [literally] everything that Superman is — but she never sees it.
Ladies, you know I harass the fellas a lot on your behalf, but this time I want to remind you that your husband is Superman — or at least he has the potential to be a super man. Even if he won’t admit it, he wants to feel like he’s a superhero in your eyes. He wants you to think he’s “faster than a speeding locomotive and able to leap tall buildings in a single bound.”
Here’s the secret: YOU are the source of his power. If you want a super man, start directing your affection and attention toward that nerdy guy in the square glasses. You may be surprised to discover a giant ‘S’ on his chest and realize you’re in love with a man of steel (let’s just hope he’s not sporting any spandex).
It’s your call, but I assure you every man wants to be Superman … because being Clark Kent sucks.
