The Difference between Men and Women #63 - Greeting Friends #fb

Greetings friends you haven't seen in awhile is treated differently by Men and Women.

Men, when they see someone they haven't seen in awhile, they usually give them a head lift, and a "Hey, how's it going?" or maybe if it's a really special event (especially if it's a group of guys they have seen in awhile) one of the guys will say, "Hey, there he is!" After that some one arm hugs with back bumping with a fist, high fives, handshakes, and other macho exchanges.

Women, on the other hand treat it much differently. When women meet a group of other ladies they haven't seen in awhile (even though they may have played games on Facebook with them off and on for 6 months) is an important ritual. If a couple arrives, it becomes a high school flashback; Guys go to the guys area, and the women congregate near a doorway. Then, the transformation happens. The women have been the way they are (voice, etc) all the way to the event, but when they see a group of women they haven't seen in awhile, things change;

1. Their voices go up 4 octaves,
2. They hug and hover cheek kiss every woman there,
3. The younger they are, there may be jumping up and down or hand shaking involved (very rare, but it does happen. I've seen it),
4. Eeking, squeeling, and other such sounds,
5. The speed in which they talk increases 20 times, and
6. all the while keeping the Valley Girl accent (including the words, "Cute," "I Know," "Oh my God," and "Love it").

The ear-piercing sound that is created by a female group re-meeting, makes men run away clutching their ears in pain. After that, I'm convinced that Women trade secrets to take over the world and vote on new color names.

Note: For church going folks, this happens every Sunday. Just sayin'

Your Blog is really funny!
But according to some of your m/f differences generalisations I am more male methinks! ;)
Colleen's entries add a nice touch.
BTW you are my first male follower. Cool! I will have to stop addressing it 'ladies' so often now.

Oh crap. This is #63!? I have a lot of reading to do. If 63 is any indication, you are not as dumb as your title suggest.

You are absolutely right! It's stupid but it happens and I find myself doing this all the time. I don't go out much so when people see me it's an event just like you described. Honestly, I hate it!

I soooooo don't want to admit that you are right, but you are dead on! :) Too funny.

I kind of like seeing a woman I haven't seen in a while, because she hugs me. Men usually won't let me do that, but I guess there's nothing wrong with the ol' fist bump, either.

I love the way you write! You have a great perspective on things.

Oh, and thanks for the follow.
