I Love You, Let's Meet » an avalanche of disappointment

an avalanche of disappointment

here’s things I observed in my book, borne out by experiments. Not surprising, but still interesting, that women were more disappointed than men because they were more caught up in romantic fantasy about their mystery dates.

Also fascinating in a rueful, Magnetic-Fields-song kind of way that one negative trait leads to an “avalanche” — that’s how fragile the fantasy is.

This link from that story was slightly more cheering: I’m not a slut after all, I’m creative!

    Wow. Fascinating site. I also read this little ditty on the science of empathy. Who knows this might explain why the date who consumed an entire egg as a first meeting stunt (for details see an earlier entry on VV’s blog) so scared his poor date! 😉
