We’re looking for your most pressing dating questions!
“When he said it was over between us do you think he really meant it? Or, do you think he just wants to take a break?”
Ever found yourself asking this question or another about the guy you’re currently digging? Hopelessly wondering to yourself, why does he do that? It seems no matter how hard we try, we just can’t seem to figure out the intricacies of the opposite sex. Our quest to understand their logic leaves us stumped and wishing we could decode the male species.
Research has proven that in fact men are from Mars and women are from Venus, so to speak. Our brains are simply wired differently and excel at different things. A recent study conducted by the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine revealed that “female brains … facilitate emotional processing and the ability to infer others’ intentions in social interactions. Male brains, however, [have a] greater synergy between perception and action.” In a nutshell men are predisposed to action based on what they see and women tend to act more on what they feel and they context of a situation. As a result it can often seem that we speak a different language.
What’s a Single Girl to do with this information? Our habitual approach has been to try to make sense of the men in our lives. Unfortunately, we have learned the hard way that this is a battle we’re just not meant to win.
We asked ourselves, “why not take a different approach?” Why not confront the men and ask them the pressing questions we’re dying to know the answers to. Let’s go straight to the source to find out why they act the way they do and the logic that goes into decisions we just can’t make sense of (seriously, WHY did you disappear??).
In an informal test (i.e. one night at a bar), we informed a few strangers that we had a blog for quarter-life women. When we asked them to let us in on a few of their secrets the reaction we received was beyond our greatest expectation. The guys were thrilled to share and actually wanted us to get the word out to other girls about what to think about their behavior as well as what to do/not to do if you want to keep a guy’s interest.
Of course we don’t want to hog all of this valuable knowledge to ourselves. We want to share it with all of our exceptional readers. We also want to make sure you get to weigh-in with your most pressing questions for our team of guys.
For the next two-weeks we’re looking for you, our readers, to submit your questions about the opposite sex. Whatever is weighing on your mind, send it our way! Our expert panel will clue us in on the answers we’ve been craving.
Send all questions to firstname.lastname@example.org or tweet them @SingleDiariesXO.
Come back in February to see your questions answered!
