To Talk or Not to Talk - That is the Mating Question 

One of the few exceptions the NYT can claim is not their usual trash journalism:

Women want to be in a relationship with guys they can seriously talk to - unfortunately, a lot of those guys want to be in relationships with women they don't have to talk to.

I asked the actress and writer Carrie Fisher, on the East Coast to promote her novel "The Best Awful," who confirmed that women who challenge men are in trouble.

"I haven't dated in 12 million years," she said drily. "I gave up on dating powerful men because they wanted to date women in the service professions. So I decided to date guys in the service professions. But then I found out that kings want to be treated like kings, and consorts want to be treated like kings, too." MAUREEN DOWD

Incidentally, she titled her essay, "Men Just Want Mommy." What?? This picture above is not of a Mom, it´s of submissive woman. Mothers who care for their little boys are not the best icon of a submissive hierarchy.
