Select gender and age to cast your vote:
It's not a competition. Love is love.
From a man's perspective, when I say those three words, I mean it. And I'm not talking about first date. Sometimes it's taken me a year or more to say it.
For the very few women in my life who've heard it from me, it's usually resulted in them falling flat, floundering, twitching and foaming at the mouth.
We love differently.
only one gender is expected to a take bullet for the other
Men love deeper and more unconditionally. Women bounce at the first sign of trouble and into the arms of another man.
Men love in a different way than women.
Both / neither.
I say men.
ugh... I'd go to the oxytocin and vasopressin differences. For a guy the love thing isn't going to happen right away, but if it gets established, it pretty much isn't going to move or shift. The female runs off that oxytocin though... easy to get but easy to drop. How's the saying go... when a woman is fed up, it's over... you're not going to change her mind. So I just don't know... I think I'm going to vote just for the results.
