After coaching women for many years, I already suspected this, but this was a stark realization when you see just how few men you even find to be average looking. Ok Cupid reports that the most attractive women still receive 5X more email than average women and 28X more email than unattractive women.
Literally 2/3 of male messages go to the best looking 1/3 of women.
This doesn’t mean that they’re not shallow (they are), but rather, that they are consistent and reasonable in terms of “rating” women’s looks.
Like in a normal bell curve, 5% of the women were found to be the least attractive and 5% were found to be the most attractive, with most women falling in the middle 90%.
Interpersonal communication is an exchange of information between two or more people. Communication skills are developed and may be enhanced or improved with increased knowledge and practice.
During interpersonal communication, there is message sending and message receiving.
Participants judged their own behaviour more permissively than their partner's, but only for emotional/affectionate and technology/online behaviours (not sexual/explicit or solitary behaviours).
These scholars, however, also recognize that there is considerable variety in how they and their colleagues conceptually and operationally define this area of study.
The kind of love that only wants truth and wholeness and peace for each other. So, with humility, love (and a healthy dose of defensiveness on behalf of my heart and the hearts of my warrior sisters), I offer the following thoughts: If I don’t mention something, it’s not because I forgot to. There will be parts of this story I (try to) keep for myself and Craig and the kids. Most of us fight like hell for our marriages until we realize that we can either save our marriages or save our souls. Please think deeply about the chasm-wide difference between leaving a man and leaving God.
For the next several weeks, you do nothing but cry and talk. It’s because I desperately have to find the balance here between honesty and a tell-all. If you can, please resist assumptions, gossip, or asking for details I haven’t provided. Please remember that when a woman leaves, she just brings God with her.
As Ok Cupid observed, the medical term for this is “male pattern madness”.
4) Women engage in similar behavioral patterns, just not as extreme.
