It is difficult to assign meaning to something that I cannot choose for myself. The female experience deviates so much from individual to individual that any input will be entirely subjective... even the human experience deviates, so this is difficult to parse out.
I am curious if there are any overarching trends among women (i.e. objective trends)... a sort of communal umbrella. I'll take a stab at this with that in mind...
To be desired.
^That isn't to say men don't want to be desired, but I don't think it's as high on their totem pole (no pun intended) as it is ours. And it isn't to say that women don't have other priorities on their plate, but this is probably top 3 in conscious and unconscious aims among most women barring mental illness... Perhaps men need to be needed as much as we need to be wanted (sought/desired) and this small, but large difference is what establishes our boundary from one another.
It's also difficult to assign any meaning/significance etc. when I'm not sure if I should be answering based on mother nature's (or God's, or a higher power's) perspective and their projected purpose onto me, or my own perspective and those of us living the experience.
What do you think? Hit or miss?
