Actually, when I look back at my attempts to make new kissy-cuddly-lovey guy friends, I certainly have to agree with your assessment of men, in general. I don't like agreeing. It bugs me to agree. I hate steriotypes. But it seems to be true that men, on average, are severely lacking in social skills, compassion, kindness, honesty and the like. Brutes, if you will.
(Any guys reading this who aren't such brutes, and who live in the Northernly portions of New Mexico, are welcome to say hello!)
