I just want to reach into the telephone and take away whatever they’re eating. like people crunching while they are on the telephone with me. A little while back I asked some of my friends, family and readers what their dating pet peeves were. What are some things that can be annoying to others?
In other words, maybe males and females largely behave as they do because of their gender, rather than in spite of them.
Without question, many gender differences seen in young children’s behavior (males preferring combative play or hyperactive play, females engaging in relationship-based behavior with dolls or friends) seem to continue later in life, though they are manifested in different ways later.
When it comes to romantic relationships, it is certainly possible (though not provable) that one’s gender determines at least part of the way they approach sex and commitment.
In my clinical work, I find that women seek a committed relationship at higher rates than men.
When a man says he’s not ready to take the relationship to the next level, what does that really mean?
