If you want to learn about the opposite sex...

...ask a member of the opposite sex!

Most of the truths I have ever learned about women I learned from women themselves. Most of the stuff that men told me about women was B.S. (most, but not all) that had been passed around by men without being verified by any women.

However... quite often when women have tried to explain other women's behavior to me, they have been wrong.

I'm thinking of an example in which one woman I know suggested that I send another a gift in the mail even though my intuition told me it wouldn't bring her any closer to me. The result? The gift's recipient did not speak to me for a long time. She did eventually thank me for the gift, but she kept her distance and continues to do so.

I'm not blaming the failure of this relationship on the gift or on my friend's advice, but I do feel I should have listened to my gut regarding the gift.

Suggestion: Only ask the woman you are intersted in, at the time, each one is a different as a snowflake.

Or go with your "gut" instincts.

Ask for the advice, but if it goes against your gut instincts, don't do it. Usually, it you combine the advice with what your instinct is telling you, you'll come out ok.
