Oh, and for the fellas being interrogated over shopping trips for their overly-inquisitive ladies...

Just tell them the truth-you were shopping for their present, and if they are (naturally) curious and ask what it is, or where you went, then think of the lamest possible gift and give them that answer (i.e. "I went to the mine to get you a lump of coal", "went to Wal-Mart to buy you a new ironing board", etc). Eventually they will get the hint and lay off. Or, like my wife, they will find humour in it and pester you just to see what dastardly answers you'll give.

I've been flat out accused of cheating on someon next summer. She punished me for something I hadn't done yet.

I've also been beaten around the head by that farking Little Black Book movie: "People are creatures of habit." Because I'd had a casual encounter while I was single, apparently I was going to be having constant casual encounters while in relationships. You can't argue with something that illogical. Well, you can, but you won't get anywhere.

This happened with two successive girlfriends. They both harped on about it so much (on zero evidence, I might add - I have something of a White Knight complex, and loyalty to the source of thy nookie is a big part of that) I finally asked them if they knew what a self-fulfulling prophecy was.

Fortunately my current girlfriend is amazing and not a bundle of insecurities.

Guys, if she doesn't respect herself enough to be confident, she's going to assume you don't either. If she thinks you're a bad boyfriend, and your instinct it to prove her wrong, you're better off proving her right.

My friend was going to surprise his girlfriend with a trip to Mexico, where he was going to propose to her. He asked me whether he should go through with the surprise or just tell her.

"Surprise her dude, don't tell her anything." I said.

She could tell he was keeping a secret from her, so she accused him with 100% certainty of cheating on her. After a huge fight he told her about the now canceled trip to Mexico and she still feels like a total biatch about it.

Lesson: You don't know shiat ladies.

MayoSlather: FTA: "More masculine-looking men (were) rated as more probable to be unfaithful and having a sexual history of being more unfaithful."

This is crazy. So what they're saying is that if a man looks more attractive and thus has more options that he's more likely to cheat? Get out!



You couldn't read just one more sentence in TFA? Seriously, this was the very next line after your quote:
Attractiveness was not a factor in the women making the link.

In other words, women were making the judgment based off of male facial features which are common to men with high testosterone levels. Those high testosterone levels also correlate with a higher likelihood of cheating, so they were able to guess which men were more likely to cheat with some reasonable degree of accuracy.

But the attractiveness of the man's face (which usually is predicated on other attributes, such as facial symmetry) didn't appear to be a factor in the decision making.

Pocket Ninja: Well, that depends. Is she looking at him while he's cheating?
