I do think that's the case. I don't fall in love very often, it's very rare really, but when I do it goes very quick. Last time I was completely in love only after seeing her the 2nd time, and it wasn't even a date.
i would say it's true. I think women start falling in love over a longer period of time, by getting too know her man. it really comes down too, we have different psychology. men are more psychological about things, and women are more emotional about things. .
I also think it comes down to the individual, so many factors play a part for someone too fall in love quick than the other. I also think that the article is too generalized, not every man and women are the same emotionally. sometimes our up bringing can be big factor in that.
i kinda agree and disagree because when a guy likes a girl and I mean really LIKES! a gril he would actually lay down everything for her his walls, but if he doesn't he likes her as a friend or doesn't really see her as someone he would want to give his heart to..
This is all because for guys, it's "more of a social stigma" if they "don't have a girlfriend" or "haven't had a girlfriend" and are "still virgins" and so the like, thus they attempt to get into a relationship as soon as possible with pretty much the first girl that looks attractive. Later on, it's probably a result of desperation - they're willing to take the first that comes by.
I personally would prefer to see the skeletons in the closet first before I'd settle by a person, because if something's unacceptable, I'd just rather leave it. Such as smoking weed, excessive partying/drinking, conflicting values, etc.
So to actually make this post worthwhile, it's a result of stereotyping of the opposite gender. People often are swooned by the fact that the other person is an "attractive girl", and forgot to actually get to know the individual themselves. It's a shame, really. Once people realize that the social pressure is nonsensical, and that there is more to others than getting them laid - this no longer happens.
This is interesting, but personally I don't like these types of huge generalizations.. unless it can be proven to me that there's some sort of physical, biological reason as to why that happens. In my opinion, people experience different things, and all have different past relationships/experiences. I can say that I used to fall in love quickly, but as time passed it got harder to do so, or I looked for more things before deciding that I loved someone. Also, love to me, is an individual process. What someone thinks is love, might not be what someone else thinks is love. So when you survey people like that, you have to take into consideration the huge variability in definition.
So short answer, no, not sure I really believe this study lol
