Designing Women - Part XI

Written by: Brandon Fisher

I am no good talking to attractive women. They are my kryptonite. When I get near them all my powers wear off. Not that there were many to start with. Actually it doesn’t take much to render me powerless. A cool breeze might do the job. A breezy blonde most certainly will. And when I do talk to them I don’t leave a lasting impression. One time I talked to this girl at a party for a solid 30 minutes then excused myself to use the restroom and when I returned she had no memory of our conversation. That’s how long my impression lasts – a bathroom break. Not even a #2 bathroom break – a #1. This is unfortunate, because a lot of emphasis is focused on making a good impression. I think the most lasting impressions are probably STDs or babies. Except one of those two is much easier to get rid of than the other.

In a new study by Sanne Nauts and her colleagues at Radboud University Nijmegen in the Netherlands men are cognitively impaired when they are interacting with women (even when they just think they might interact with women.) Women were unaffected in the test, but men when thinking they were speaking to a women had a loss in cognition. What hope do men have against women? None. You know who I bet had no problem talking to women? Stevie Wonder.
