Monologue: The difference between boys and girls is this:

Big sister or aunt-type giving boy advice to a younger girl.

MC: “The difference between boys and girls is this:

When a girl wants to go out with a boy, it’s because she thinks he’s cute and she wants to talk to him and look deep into his eyes and hold his hand and maybe kiss him someday, in this big, movie-like passionate, romantic way, like you see on book covers. And she wants him to think she’s the prettiest girl ever, and notice all the things she likes about herself that nobody else notices. And to never, ever, look at any other girls.

When a boy wants to go out with a girl, he wants to do most of those things, too, but he mostly wants to do all the nasty physical stuff [fill in the blank] he can possibly think of. And it’s not because he’s disgusting, or a jerk or a pervert, it’s just because he’s a boy. And a lot of the time they are more scared shitless of making the first move than you are. So if you have a boy that you know – maybe you’re “just friends,” and he spends lots of time talking to you and you laugh at the same jokes, unless he’s in love with another girl or gay, he most likely wants to do all of those things with you. ”

  1. Monologue, huh? For stage? A novel? It’s intriguing. Though, I’m not sure that it’s 100% accurate. Generally speaking, girls do often want different things from a relationship than boys and vice versa, but I think some girls would want to do the more intense experimenting that some boys want to do, and some boys want the romance just like some girls want. Isn’t the key to this advice to explain to the girl the importance of finding the right match when it comes to getting what one wants out of a relationship? Does this advice the big sis/aunt type give relate to a specific boy and a specific girl? Does it speak to the type of experiences the narrator has had herself? Whatever the case, I’d be interested to read more and see if the monologue plays out to show that stereotypes of what girls and boys want don’t always apply…and that knowing (and voicing) WHAT one wants (and doesn’t want) is the important part.

    Love when you share what you’re writing. :)
