should have come bearing flowers, candy and a couple of lines from Shakespeare. Sounds to me like the girls in this article are no different then any other women, they still pursue the guy who is aloof and/or taken. Good luck ladies in your romantic pursuits!

Parents of attractive HS boys known all about this rather old trend. HS girls have been known to sneak in through boys' bedroom windows, or take similar initiatives. Females are the gatekeepers and always have been. It's up to them to decide whether to guard or not. People who complain about corrupting "liberal" values should think about certain female leaders of the Republican Party before they react to this. Americans of both parties are flaming liberals when it comes to issues like this. The last remaining conservatives can be found across the seas and not always there.

I'm sure a lot of the women have been influenced by Sex and the City -- seeing determined and powerful women taking a more active role in their love lives. Also, I think guys are tired of feeling like they can't do anything right, whether they try to be nice and are perceived as weak, or they try and be forward and are perceived as jerks.

But I've also never been on the bar scene, except to down a couple of beers. Must be a world unto itself.

Researchers? RESEARCHERS? You mean money is being spent on this??? Surely there's more important things to research that would benefit mankind.

funny to read about women being just as gross and clumsy as men can be in the bar scene. Men at least make it look charming. grabbing a guy's knee? classiness FAIL
