Although women have been themed to be the crazy, clingy ones out of heterosexual relationships a new notion now circulates among popular society. Reportedly, of individuals surveyed, men generally stated that they uttered “I love you” seven months into a relationship, where the female number was just around an eight-month wait. While that margin may seem negligible, it’s evidently an interesting finding due to the age-old adage that Oliver James, who was head researcher of the study, reanimates:
“…The classic cliché is that men use love to get sex and women use sex to get love.”
The study was conducted by Stella magazine, based out of the UK, and YouGov, who collaborated with Stella in order to research and report the social findings.
As people agree with the old cliche noted above, and on a related note, why are women notorious for their fast-and-hard-falling ways? As many women as I have met, only a small fraction of them could be perceived as the clingy, over-affectionate women that historical society believes them to be. I’ve met more women who were feeling pressured and smothered by the weight of a newer relationship than I could shake a penis-covered stick with.
I think the former notion is silly. Are there people out there that are fast-falling fools? Yes. There are a ton of them. I’ve met them, too. But my point is that for every clingy woman, there’s another clingy man just waiting for that extra five minutes to choke hug the living shit out of you.
