    All i know is everytime i am with my girlfriend and some pretty girl walks by she checks to see if i stare at them. All i see is borders or FYE or bestbuy and i just look at books and electronics.

    Then she laughs at me and says "did you see her" all my response is "her who?"

    Then she laughs more and tightens her grip on my hand.

    Perhaps this explains why I have known so many pretty ladies who are succesful in sales.... :)

    OK, for those of you who actually read the article, be honest: How many of you compared the length of your index finger to the length of your ring finger to determine your level of "risk"? :D

    I point out hot chicks before my bf even gets a chance to glance their way. :p I think he's tired of seeing hot chicks. I highly doubt that... but you never know.

    So I agree w/ vniow :D hot women are distracting-- period.

    Eh, that test is crap anywayz. Its only used as a gimmick, it really doesn't have any scientific backing to it.

    Maybe he's just gotton used to the hot chick he's with. :eek: :D

    I thought that was suspicious. Kind of like looking at someones shoe size to determine ... other anatomy.

    My wife and I used to go wandering around the local mall, as we both like to people watch. I got in the habit of pointedly looking in a store window or otherwise clearly not looking when a particularly attractive woman walked by. One time, my wife gave me a "friendly" elbow to the ribs, even though I wasn't caught looking. Her point was that, since I was obviously not looking at the hot chick, I must have checked her out enough to recognize her hotness and determine I was better off not looking.

    Effectively, I was elbowed for not eyeballing the hot chick.:confused:

    Heck, I'm no fool. if I'm getting elbowed regardless, I'm gonna look.;)

    We don't go to the mall so much anymore.:rolleyes:

    It's so true... my girlfriend points out women before i could even turn my head... The constent "did you see her boobs" and "look how short her skirt is"... i think women are more constantly distracted then men.
    :D

    I think it is nature for men and women to want to notice another attractive person (same or opposite sex). As for looking that a pretty woman effecting the choices I have made (or that any other guys make) I suppose that again is nature, and I suspect many women do the same thing. This article doesn't really have science behind it, but I would be intersted in seeing the science behind it.

    This is true. :eek: Women are way more critical of each other than men are.

    It adds an extra dimension if you're bi though. You're not only comparing yourself to the other girl, you're checking her out too. I think I remember walking down the street one day with a friend of mine and I was checking out just about every cute person who walked by, "Ooh, she's cute" "****, look at the ass on that guy" "OMG, he has lovely lips" "Damn, check out the legs on that chick". After several minutes of this she got fed up and said soemthing like "Make up your mind already!"
    It was then I knew that I had a problem. :eek:

    Yeah, I think you misinterpretted my first post... and I try not to criticize other women. So my comment would be more like, "Oh my gosh... look, she is so hot. I'd do her." :p

    I don't get that financial test. They used it in a bbc brain sex test, too.

    Only a 50-50 split makes any sense. I wouldn't accept anything less, and I wouldn't offer anything less.

    Yep. I will agree with that. There were these girls in bikini's sun tanning the other day and my girlfriend made me stop and look at them lol I was like "Wtf?" Haha... she just knows how safe she is with me I guess. :p So She's comfortable with it. And guys... remember... even if you're not hungry you can still look at the menu. ;)

    Is it just me, or is it sketchy that a research study didn't use any better measure of testosterone than the ratio of index and ring fingers? :rolleyes:

    Hm, I'll just assume that most of the researchers were male, so no, it's not sketchy at all. :p
