I went out on a date a few days back and he was quite adventerous. Like he hiked through alaska alone for 3 months, canoed through mexico for 2 months, he was cliff jumping while travling thoruugh Ireland, skiing like outside the slopes, cave climbing in thailand and for all of those things I said it would have scared me to death and I would have never done it.
At some point he said "you're afraid of a lot of things" and smiled and then went on saying "but it's ok, you're a girl "
And I supposed he meant it, he did ask for a second date.
Anyways I never thought that was a bad thing, being afraid of things that are clearly dangerous, but he made it sound like it is. Well if you're a guy at least. And from what he was saying it sounded like the only reason it's ok for girls to be afraid is that he thinks of women as less capable
Just made wondering what other people think? A few of my guy friends said "It's just how it is, we all think it and he said it"
Is it just a difference between and women? Am I just too politcally correct? Just looking for opinions because he was good company otherwise and I'm evaluating if I should go on a second date.
The same attitude kinda came through in some other points though. Like I asked if those are things he would want to continue with a partner and he said no right away because he doesn't think a woman should do it and he's not gay.

Are there differences between men and women? Yes. But you can't paint each other broadly. Two women just graduated from US ARMY ranger school this summer. I can promise you they would not be scared of what he has done.
There are many men that would not do as he has done for that matter.
So you have to be careful painting anyone with broad brush strokes.
It sounds like he is a little immature and doesn't get rhat yet. You have to decide if he can change that opinion. If not, he is probably not for you.0

It's just a difference in interests. I'd love to do all of what he did! That'd be so fun and that would make such good memories and accomplishments. I understand your reaction too, it's quite impressive and intimidating! But don't you find it attractive? That dude freakin' lived! He went almost all around the world and it's really cool!
You could probably really surprise him if you said (and meant it) that you would be down to follow him on one of his adventures.0
