I've dated countless women and it has always amazed me how little they know about men.
I believe this is true for a couple reasons: Other data, such as a woman's religious or political beliefs, her social class, her family, etc.
are either immediately available to a man via conversation, or else far less significant in garnering his attraction.
It amazed me that a woman could end up being so in love with a man that, initially, she wouldn't have seriously considered dating.
In fact, I was so surprised by this that I initially doubted the truth of the stories.
Before long I started getting attached and soon I found myself falling for him.
We spent a lot of time together, and by three months I was in love.
Also, I am not saying that this is the only way women fall in love, or the most common.
I recognize that women can experience something closer to "love at first sight." The important thing to recognize is that you cannot expect (much less make) a man gradually fall in love with you in the same way that you might fall in love with a man. Male romantic love is something that either starts early and continues, or else doesn't start at all.
By now most of you have probably recognized the important point for women, which is implicit in my astonishment: men do not fall in love gradually, and they do not find themselves suddenly falling for women in whom they weren't initially interested.
I was surprised because I had wrongly assumed that women work the same way as men in this respect. Now, let me qualify a couple things before going any further.
