Men are from The Land of Loving Little?

Just read this quote on some obscure blog:
"Man loves little and often, woman much and rarely."

Is this true? Doesn't seem quite right to me.

Weigh in if you like.

UPDATE: Silence. Am I to understand that you all agree with this statement? No exceptions?

It's one of those interesting quotes that seems deep and makes everyone ponder, but when you come right down to's a bunch of crap.

There are always exceptions, but I think the idea of it rings true. Kind of like our dear brother's adage, "guys are jerks and girls are stupid." Some times the roles reverse, sometime's it just doesn't apply. But it ain't all that bogus...

It's called "Hmmm. Here's a list of old taglines I used to use in the BBS and Usenet days. I think I'll just import it into the blog template."

Of course, being obscure, I have this luxury. :)

Maybe it's not "love" we're talking about after all, if men do it often and women rarely.

cghill: Obscure. Random. That's what I meant I suppose. No less obscure than mine, which is the definition of obscure. But what is BBS?

"BBS" = Bulletin Board System, which was an interactive service in the 1980s and early 1990s (they've since fallen largely into desuetude) which anyone with a spare computer and an extra phone line could run out of the back bedroom. I had one of these briefly, with about 180 users on the roster; the big disadvantage of these, of course, was the limit of one user at a time. (There were some fancier systems with multiple-user capabilities, but these required substantially greater investments in software, hardware, and phone lines.) A BBS might offer message boards, file exchanges, or both; many of them were ultimately networked (usually late at night), making it possible to circulate stuff all over the globe. I ran a FidoNet discussion group for a number of years; it ran on about a thousand such systems.

cghill: Scully quote big improvement.

BBS were before my time it seems. But at least I know what they are now.

It was a different environment, but the principle was much the same: claim your own soapbox.

Every time I put up a new post, or every time someone posts a comment, the script pulls a new quote out of the file. Some of them I don't remember ever putting in there; much of it was cut and pasted from old sources.

I've heard that a guy's romance burns fast and quick like a match and a woman's slowly grows like a fireplace fire. Similar premise, I guess, and I would say it's probably true more often than not but not frequently enough to justify the generalization.

Oh, and I wish I could find my old BBSing tag line file. My blog is actually set up with a rotating tagline and I could always use more quotes :)
