Thread Name: I am humbled
Subject: RE: I am humbled
All interesting. I lived in a house for awhile at university in England with a girlfriend who shared the house with 6 other females. After about 3 months, they sort of forgot that I was there, I turned into a brother or a tame animal and the whole environment changed. It got anthropologically very interesting. There were all these weird rhythms and crises and marathon talkfests and status fights and mutual what I can only call nitpicking and temperature taking that were nothing like guys in groups ever work like. I learned an incredible amount: it was also the first time in my life that it occurred to me that being surrounded by women all the time might not be total heaven!
