Do I understand Women? Another Survey I did....

Check out my results, apparently it tells me I must have had a woman take it for me.

This must mean I am improving perhaps?

You scored 18 - 21 points. You must have had a woman take this for you.
1. At dinner, she can't decide between the scallops and the salad. What do you do?

You answered: Tell her what you would order.

Answer analysis: "Women are trained not to ask for what they really want," Louis explains. If you give her more than she thinks she needs without making her ask for it, she's yours. Consider this your mantra for special occasions, too, Louis says. If she tells you she doesn't want anything, get her whatever you were planning on giving her anyway.


2. You're driving to a restaurant, and she's quietly staring ahead. You think . . .

You answered: She's not saying much. She must be tired.

Answer analysis: Women are known for what Wood calls "symbolic reaching." If she's not touching you or angling toward you as she talks, ask her what's up. Women think silence is a red flag, whereas most men don't give it a second thought, Wood says. Quiet is a sign that something is wrong. If you don't notice, you're really in the doghouse.


3. When she asks, "How was your day?" what does she want to hear?

You answered: Let me tell you how my proposal went."

Answer analysis: She wants details, says Tannen. "For women, it's a way to show that you're involved in each other's lives," she says. Give her some Specifics, then ask about her day. "Women really rely on talking as a way to connect," says Michele Weiner-Davis, founder of divorcebusting.com. "If she doesn't feel connected emotionally, she won't want to connect physically." Consider it foreplay.


4. Your girlfriend suggests hitting happy hour after work. What's your response?

You answered: "Sounds good. Want to try a new bar?"

Answer analysis: Here's where it gets tricky. Women think decisions should be made by consensus; it helps them feel you care about their opinions, interests, and ideas, explains Deborah Tannen, a linguistics professor at Georgetown University. Just because she suggests something doesn't mean she isn't flexible. She just wants to be included in the planning.


5. A woman plucks a piece of lint from your jacket. This means . .

You answered: She thinks you're a slob.

Answer analysis: For eons, primates--that includes us--have groomed each other to signal affection. "Grooming cues," as Wood calls them, include fixing the buttons on your shirt, folding your collar, smoothing your hair, and dusting off your jacket. They're excuses for her to touch you, and when she does them in public, they can signal attraction or commitment.


6. If you're shaking hands with a woman and she hangs on for a while, it means . . .

You answered: She's trying to be polite.

Answer analysis: It means very little. "Women often let the man take control in a handshake, so they're waiting for him to let go," says Patti Wood, author of Success Signals. Look for other body-language clues, says Tracey Cox, author of Superflirt. A raised eyebrow, a smile, or a lean toward you reveals more interest than a lingering handshake.


7. At a bar, an unbelievable woman locks eyes with you. You should . . .

You answered: Stroll over to her and start a conversation.

Answer analysis: Eye contact (for 3 seconds or more) is an obvious opening, says Ron Louis, coauthor of How to Succeed with Women. "Behavioral psychologists have told us that women think they're putting out big signals, when really they're doing something subtle," he says. Eye contact is the most common way for women to show interest.

And when you ask her what is wrong, she simply answers, "Nothing." Then you know that you are beyond the doghouse, rather, you are in the area behind the doghouse where the dog takes a sh*t.
