When I was thirteen, I actually thought there was a chance of understanding girls. 57 years later, I know how foolish that was. But, at the time, I was still young and hopeful that the world made sense.
In my new book, Survivng Seventh Grade, (2013), I pursued this question with friends and parents, in "What Girls Want". The answers were never satisfactory.
Have a nice weekend.

What Girls Want
I asked Billy what he thought girls wanted.
He said they like lots of ice cream.
If you don’t get them ice cream
They get very cranky.
I think Irma likes ice cream.
I wasn’t sure if that was universal, however.
Billy sometimes lacks subtlety
In his approach to things.
So I asked Mom.
She said girls like boys who are
Smart, kind and have a sense of humor.
Mom hasn’t been to school in a while.
The popular boys in school
Seem to be dumb, mean and tall.
I guess Mom meant girls in the olden days,
Before they became crazy.
