In your opinion, do you understand the opposite sex?

March 28, 2018

We are all born with a given gender. It’s no secret that men and women are very different from each other by their behavior, habits, a frame of reference. Studies of psychologists have shown that in the presence of other people these differences are manifested with double strength. First of all, this is because we are accustomed to playing certain roles, that is, the roles of man and the roles of woman. As Shakespeare aptly said, “All the world is a stage, and all the men and women merely players.” 

In this regard, each of us at least once in a lifetime has been faced with a misunderstanding of the opposite sex. The phrases that we are from different planets and a man and a woman will never agree on surprise no one anymore. 

Sure, it’s not easy to understand another person, and if this person is of another gender, it is even more difficult. Men and women have different psychology, different world perceptions and feelings about the things around. All well-known psychoanalyst Z. Freud died without knowing the answer to one question, “What do women want?” 

Yet, men are also “mysterious” creatures. And women cannot understand why does he love but does not talk about it? What prevents him from treating me with friends the same way as when we’re alone? If you, after reading this question, smiled and said, “Yes, I understand the opposite sex well,” then you are one of those happy people who are rarely frustrated by the misunderstanding of this or that action of the opposite sex. 

So, in your opinion, do you understand the opposite sex?

  • Yes!
  • At times, but when I think I’ve got them figured out, I’m reminded I don’t know s----!
  • Not at all

If you’ve divorced before, would you remarry?

March 27, 2018

How’s the saying go… If at first you don’t succeed, keep marrying until you find the one? 

Obviously, the above statement was made in jest, but for those who have been through a divorce, if you found someone else you believed could be a partner for life would you go through the process all over again?

  • Yes
  • No
  • I’m not sure

How do you feel about those who are happily childfree?

Less than 10% of American women aged 35-44 choose to be childless. Left up to the Voluntary Human Extinction Movement (vhemt.org), that figure would be much higher than the one that has consistently spanned decades!

The choice is a rarity and is frequently met with discrimination. Women in particular are often stereotyped as individualistic, selfish, and less likely to commit themselves to helping others. On the other hand, these women also have the highest income and lowest religiosity compared to their counterparts. With this in mind, how do you feel about the childfree society?

  • I agree with the stereotypes
  • I don’t judge, it’s their choice
  • I envy them
  • I am one of these people
