A study appeared in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology that found that two-thirds of men in heterosexual relationships said those three little words first, often a full six weeks before the woman.By a statistical trick, I can extrapolate to non-heterosexual relationships:
1) In lesbian relationships, it was always a woman who said "I love you" first.
2) In gay male relationships, it was always a man.
The article speculates that straight men's declarations of love may sometimes be imperfectly sincere.
Some of what they say
may not be true. Instead,
some of it could be a way
to talk a woman into bed.
