THE BLACK WIDOW: A SHALLOW SISTERS TAKE
The Black Widow is known for devouring her lover after he has had sex with her. She no longer has a need for him. He no longer pleases her.
I have the Black Widow Syndrome. Although you could say, what I actually have, are intimacy Issues.
I beg to differ.
I am a Black Widow because I am a man. I function in much the same way. I lose interest once I have conquered; but like a man I too can fall in love and then I am insatiable.
On the one hand I am glad to feel so enlightened. To feel empowered by not wishing to cling to a man because I have been physically intimate. I understand how men feel once they have had their orgasm. I too want to go home. But on the other hand I am frustrated by an inability to find someone who can sate me.
Since I will not settle for less than perfection I remain a loner waiting for a man who has the power to trap me in his web.
