Betas, Deltas, and Gammas may do well to keep this interesting fact from the Pew Research Center in mind the next time they hear a woman sailing off on what they believe to be her heartfelt romantic fantasies:
Men (31%) are a bit more likely than women (26%) to say that every person has only one true love.
In other words, nearly three-quarters of women don’t buy into the Disney myth by which many men believe women live. This is one reason it often surprises men when they discover how ruthlessly calculating women can be, especially when those men happen to buy into the Disney myth themselves.
Never put a woman on a pedestal. Never put anyone on a pedestal. Statues belong on pedestals, not living people.
