Men are from ... oh, please. THEY'RE JUST DIFFERENT, DAMNIT! ACCEPT IT!

So, yeah, I actually took that photo (of the bee pollinating the daisy, or throwing up on the daisy, whatever) - it's supposed to represent BIOLOGY (you know, the birds and the ... bees) [Digression re: "the birds and the bees" - Can someone please explain why this is the chosen euphemism for awkward sex talks? Why isn't it called "the bees and the flowers"? What do the birds have to do with anything? Who's ever seen birds do it, anyway??]

Anyway, biology is the subject of today's AM New York column, titled: Relationship Biology: Hard Wired to Frustrate?

In this article, I interview Scott Haltzman, author of The Secrets of Happily Married Men. As I say in the article, although I'm neither married, nor a man, I've never met a Self-Help book I didn't want to read (while lounging in a lightly scented bubble bath with Toto playing in the background).

My favorite quote? "The average man, unless pressed for answers, does not actively think much about relationships," Haltzman says.

About how far into his MD do you think he was when he discovered that?

"The average man, unless pressed for answers, does not actively think much about relationships," Haltzman says. Neither does the average woman if you really think about it. Both men and women think about what they can get out of the relationship. Not the relationship itself. Its a "what can I get mentality" when we are entering into a relationships. Thinking about the relationships with the average man or women generally doesn't go further than thoughts about tomorrow mornings exit strategy. (Contrary to popular belief women also have exit strategies the day after) Just with either sex the objectives are different based on their desires or revulsion Robert
