By Nikki Hunter, Authorized Fascinating Womanhood Teacher
Have you ever happened to notice a woman who has several characteristics of a Fascinating Woman on a television show or in a movie? Though there are several shows and movies in which women display one or two characteristics, it is rare that we see a woman have so many that she is nearly the embodiment of Angela Human! Today I had the joy of catching such a show! It was an episode eight from season six of M*A*S*H*. It’s titled “In Love and War”, and I recommend that any Fascinating Womanhood fan watch it!
I don’t want to give away too much about the episode, so think it will suffice to say that a Fascinating Woman captivates Dr. Hawkeye Pierce. She exemplified the qualities of: Femininity, Worthy Character, Inner Happiness, and even some Childlikeness. She is one of the best examples, perhaps even the best, that I have ever seen on a television show of a Fascinating Woman living the Sweet Promise.
If you’re not familiar with the Sweet Promise in FW, it was briefly written of in the chapter “The Feminine Nature” and explained as thus (quoted here with permission):
The Sweet Promise
“Although men are fascinating by vulnerability in women, there’s a balancing quality they appreciate. A man needs the assurance that, with all of your feminine dependency on him to take care of you, protect, and wait on you, that somewhere hidden within is your ability to meet an emergency. He needs to know that in times of urgent need, you would have the womanly courage, strength, endurance, and ability to solve difficult problems, that you would not, in this case, be helpless. This is known as the sweet promise. It should be somewhere within your character, and he must perceive it is there.” - Helen Andelin
The woman in the episode is also an example of Fascinating Womanhood for the Timeless Woman’s Feminine Power. Her strength and compassion towards her fellow villagers bettered everyone’s lives, and most likely even saved some of them.
The effect that the main female character in this episode had on Hawkeye is the effect that many thousands of women who apply several FW qualities have on men in their lives! If you’ve lost that effect, it’s a safe bet that you’ll find it again by brushing-up on the FW traits you’ve let slip. If you’ve never had that effect on a man and want to, keep reading and watching the FW website for updates about new, up-to-date FW books and materials that can guide you to great success and the deepest of happiness in love!
I hope that you enjoy this episode of M*A*S*H* if you get the chance to see it! Have a fascinating day full of the amazing joys of, and great happiness and fulfillment found in, being a Fascinating Woman!
