…when they notice a trend in others asking about their “love life”?
When there is a pretty equal inquiry between men and women it most likely cannot be solely out of self-interest on the part of the other. It’s more of an amusing than concerning observation but I like to tinker around in the synaptic gaps of people until I find the motivating factor. Despite my best intentions I still somehow stand out in people’s conscious considerations of these social mating games.
What do you see when you notice people sleuthing around the intimate realm? Innocent curiosity or confirmation that your current stance, involved or not, is all too obvious? I suspect this is a fertile breeding ground for potential research on gender perception and expectation.
