Wrong! true men have their women walk in front of them dropping rose petals in his path.

What a load...

That's hardly fair in my case. Mrs. Henry walks with a cane and tends to slow down if she's babbling at someone.
She'll even stop in the middle of the street if she's bloviating about something important (like the fact that I'm always walking ahead of her - as not to die of old age & boredom while listening to her sh*t).

You know who else paces comfortably next to women?  Rapists before attacking. Study fails without consideration of rapists.

Harry Burns: Because no man can be friends with a woman that he finds attractive. He always wants to have sex with her.

Sally Albright: So, you're saying that a man can be friends with a woman he finds unattractive?

Harry Burns: No. You pretty much want to nail 'em too.

Does stopping every couple blocks to let her catch up count?
 
2013-10-24 09:50:40 AM
My wife walks faster than I care to walk, and I hardly ever try to catch up. Does that mean she hates me?

Nope. It just means you're too drunk to walk properly.

Are you rich,honey? Yes? THEN I LOVE YOU! I dont mind that you're a 60 year old lady who looks like a rotting corpse! Could you sign this insurancce policy? Don't bother reading it. I don't want you to strain those bloodshot red eyes.

Sample size of 11???? Really??

You just know there's going to be at least a few wives/girlfriends who read this and then walk even slower than normal just to test it out. They'll get mad and their men will be confused.

In my experience, walking speed is actually a big point of contention. When I first started dating my wife, it almost killed our relationship by the second date. I was walking too fast for her to keep up and, being the nice, polite person she is, she didn't say anything until she absolutely had to speak up about it. But by that time she was all frustrated so it came out in this bad-attitude tone like she was talking down to me. I remember thinking, "it's our second date and she's already nagging me."

If I hadn't already farked her on the first date and really really enjoyed it, we might not be together today.

Remember ladies, always fark on the first date.

I slow down when walking with a child too. Doesn't mean I want to bang them. It just means I'm not being an asshole.

I know a couple with an unusual walking pattern, he has to walk fast to abate the pain in his hips, whereas she can't keep up a normal pace because of her feet and they have a great relationship.  She did have surgery recently, so maybe things will go quicker for her.

I am almost certain these differences aren't significantly different.  With an N of 11, there is no statistical power and these results could just as easily be random variation.  Surprised this is in a journal, even if it is one no one has ever heard of and some guy probably operates it out of his mom's garage.

they barely break their stride when with a woman who is merely a friend

Ain't nothin' gonna break my stride. Nobody's gonna slow me down.

/oh no

I once helped analyze samples for a pharmacist doing a study. He had maybe twenty rats in his study and we were measuring salt concentrations in their urine as a reaction to some drug. Had a big argument with me because the uncertainties in his best-fit plot were huge, like 50%, and thought it was because of the analysis, which had uncertainties around 0.5%. Guy had a PhD but was still a complete moron.

I have difficulty walking as slow as my wife and I am very attracted to her.

She's constantly asking me to walk slower and I'm constantly screaming at her in my head "move faster damn it!"
 
2013-10-24 10:20:17 AM
Huh. And I thought I was supposed to 'fark' at her pace.

You can keep a boner for four hours? That usually means that you should see a doctor.

I walk behind my awesome wife so I can keep her moving with a prod when she becomes slowed down and distracted by one of a million damned things in the store, along the street, or anywhere we happen to be together. Just a light tap and a firm "mush!" is all it usually takes.

If the effect is strong enough you don't need a large sample size.

If you kept reading you could laugh even harder at the idea that men are subconsciously increasing their chance to be the father because overexercizing reduces fertility.

Because my subconscious knows a fact that no human being knew until science figured it out.

I'm dating a chinese woman whose English isn't very good. Was at the mall and she was carrying some of my stuff in her purse and I called her a Sherpa. Having to explain that joke to her really killed the humor.

It causes me physical discomfort to walk as slow as my wife does. I have to shorten my stride to the point that my legs feel like they're going to cramp up.
 
2013-10-24 10:51:27 AM
I usually lag behind my wife so I can watch her ass.  I am no dummy.

this.

if you don't want to be an ass, you slow down.

my husband doesn't slow down because he is an ass. he knows it and I know it. but he is my ass.

She'd walk faster if she'd sit on my boner.

It is pretty amazing the number of "studies" made with such a small control group that the results are less than worthless.

I can always tell when my husband is angry with me because he will walk faster than me. He walks at a speed many people jog at and I am much slower. But when he's not angry, he does match his speed to mine.
 
2013-10-24 12:04:21 PM
Since I'm disabled I pretty much have one walking speed, very slow, unless you count falling then I have two speeds.

Same here although without the screaming in my head. I just tell myself it's time for a leisurely stroll.

I can't ever walk directly next to my girlfriend. She changes directions without warning and tends to run me into things.
 
2013-10-24 02:09:07 PM
Ohh great another reason to complain:  "You don't love me!  You were walking slightly faster than me!"
 
2013-10-24 02:16:23 PM
I hate generalizations! From day one I had to slow down my pace for my husband. I naturally walk fast and he ambled. Yes, I'm female.

I'm pretty sure it would work both ways.  It seems like it would be more about wanting to be near the person and changing to suit them being something a loving person would do for their loved ones than anything else.

In which case, I am not surprised that a guy or gal who constantly forces their mate to keep up would be less likely to care about them.  The act itself is douchey.

True, I did slow down to his pace and now that he's in a walker I've slowed even more.
