Do women who write romantic comedies actually ever talk to men? Listen to men talking to other men? I've come to the conclusion that the men in my life must be odd and speak differently than other men, because the men in almost all contemporary romantic comedies sound like women.
Words my husband (or any other man I know) wouldn't use when talking to other MEN:
- gee whiz--please, you've got to be kidding.
- pray tell
- impotent--I'm sure men use this word, but only with a doctor.
- creepy--it would be "f*cking creepy.
Two words I don't ever want to hear out of a hero's mouth, "Ooo, ooo..." Is that actually considered two words or one?
Do authors believe men sit down and talk about "relationships" the same way women do? No way.
