The Sensitive Male

Seldom does one encounter a woman who doesn't profess a desire for a mate or a date with greater sensitivity. Men, listen to me; this is a trap. No sooner does the hapless male reveal a greater sensitivity than do those of the female persuasion rush in to exploit his newfound vulnerability. Nine out of ten women will interpret male sensitivity as weakness, followed closely by diminished respect, and, in the extreme, by complete disdain for the caveman turned cuddle bunny. The Tenth Woman actually is seeking the more sensitive male because he will be easier to control and dominate.

Should you encounter one of these latter Amazon types, immediate action is required. Wait for the next opportunity to use your most potent sucker-punch, go to a neutral corner, and pray that the count reaches ten before she gets up off the canvas. Then go to the nearest neighborhood tavern and share your close call with the bartender.
