Something occured to me last night after I penned the earlier post about romance novels.
Girls read romance novels where the guys have to go to great length to woo the girls. They read books about feelings, all the subtle hints and body languages.
But what do boys read? Wham, bang, thank you ma’am! I know of a certain friend who have loads of Swedish books at home. (20 years ago, ok?) It is the same old story. Swedish maid, Swedish maid, Swedish maid. Description of the curves and colours and that’s it.
No wonder we are continually plague with boy/girl problems. They grew up on a different wavelength.
Even today, in the era of Nickleodeon and Disney channels, kids still grow up on a different diet depending on their gender. Only the nerdy guys mix around with the girls. See That’s so Raven, Lizzie McGuire and shows like that.
Tip for getting girls? Guys, read romance novels (even if you feel like puking) and look nerdy.
