  1. There is so much packed into that little honesty vignette. “You’re going to fall in love with me, because I want nothing to do with you.” brilliant

  2. ian – You might enjoy this one on race relations:

  3. How funny! How sad!

    See if you think this was the pattern:
    Woman: was most concerned about what others would think
    Man: was most concerned about being exploited by the woman

    Also — this loaded really quickly for me —

  4. swivelchair – Interesting; I can see that. Does this capture gender dynamics in your view?

  5. Sheesh, DrS –

    For middle class suburbia, where people are mobile, and status is apparent by what is visible, there is a real problem. If no one knows how great you are, you need to probably treat people like that — because your “significant” other is “significant” in part for the status they impart to you.

    Where society is more stable — say your family lives in one place for generations, and families know other families — all the superficial fluff probably doesn’t matter.
    So maybe you should marry a relative.
