    Yeah, you must be way more knowledgeable about psychology than a professor from UCSD.

    Good article. The first part actually explains why so many women are oblivious to dudes trying to bang them while the boyfriends are getting mad and the gf's call them insecure.

    Next time I tell an SO that some dude wants to bang her and she says "I don't think so. I just think you're being insecure." I'm going to respond "No, I just have a bigger dorsal premammillary nucleus than you. Respect, bitch."

    Nice, thats a good one lol.

    I read it and its spot on really. I liked the part about men trying to solve problems instead of listening. While I do listen I just want to solve it because I don't see why me sitting there is going to change anything. lol

    i used to not believe that. but since joining this forum i have noticed waaaay more heart break stories from guys than women. although, i assume there are also way more guys on the forum any way.

    the reason is that we bottle it up. women go to their girlfriend and a a good cry, but men don't really do that and if we do, it doesn't really help. men can be fucked up for weeks, months, even years of a woman that we thought was perfect and loved dearly.

    I find this very interesting. I'm definitely one of those people who tends to keep a poker face regardless of what is happening or if I'm happy/sad/angry/etc. I show very little emotion, like almost none unless I'm intentionally trying to.

    And I've "known" for years that when I would default back to my poker face it would actually default my mental state too (no longer feel the emotion that was triggered). But I didn't actually think it was physically possible and thought I had just kinda convinced myself that it was happening because I wanted it to happen.

    That's because to most men, replacing a woman is harder than replacing a man is for most women. So there's a bigger sense of loss.

    Or put another way, women can get a new bf (or sex) much easier than men can get a new gf (or sex).

    It's taken a loooong time for me to really understand this and it's just started clicking in the past year. :rofl: Sometimes I have to actively remind myself in the moment but it's a ton easier than getting all butt hurt because he's "not listening, he's just trying to solve the problem for me" :hsugh::hsugh:

    what is common and easily attainable has a low value, and is therefore less desirable

    in this scenario, you have given all men the same value

    it would be the same as lumping all the fatties and uggos in with the hot chicks

    the men all the women want are more rare than hot chicks all the men want to bang

    I read her book "The Male Brain" the other day at Barnes and Noble. It was on the "New Release" shelf when I walked in the door. It was extremely insightful and it was written in a very fun way to read. It's not like reading a boring textbook or anything with a bunch of facts. Most of it is written like a story, but with the explanations intertwined.

    She wrote a book called "The Female Brain" too that I want to read now.

    Went and read most of "The Female Brain" today at the book store! Just as good as "The Male Brain"!

    I love the way she writes her books. Very interesting stuff. Really makes you realize just how alike most people are.
