Thanks, Chris!

"If you are a woman and want to know what it feels like to be a man falling in love, I encourage you to go out, find a stretch of electric fence and bite down on it. To complete the experience, you might want to have a close friend stand next to you and occasionally act really upset but refuse to tell you what's wrong."

I shot coffee out of my nose and onto the keyboard when I read that.

Last week I asked how men reacted to the first kiss with any particular woman.
Chris answered the question here and I am impressed! I was under the impression that producing a boner an erection was the extent of their excitement and we girls were the only ones who felt like our internal organs were holding hands and wearing ribbons and singing “Islands in the Stream” or ”Stroke It” depending on the guy. Apparently I was very wrong…and also very surprised that men are capable of feeling something that doesn’t fall into the following categories: hungry, thirsty, horny, dirty, or needtowatchfootball.

first of all... somehow i missed your post about this.

2nd, i frakkin' hate sports, so the needtowatchfootball as you say thankfully doesn't exist in my world.

anyhoo... yesh, men who are comfortable enough to admit it, love a good strong kiss from a gal.

so many of them pussyfoot around giving a "real kiss" it actually used to piss me off when i was dating.

when a gal looked at me, and hungrily grabbed MY neck, thrusting my head down to hers and planted a long, strong, probing and passionate kiss on MY lips... well... it was frakkin' hot.

showed that I was desired, wanted and well... yeah, it ruled.

besides, men get boners if the damned bedsheets rub us the right way unintentionally so screw that notion that it's the only sign of like/love/arousal and approval.

a good "whoa" reaction in down to our core RULZ.

oh, and ketchup videos help too.

Man, Chris did a good job, but he revealed our secret as men. Now that you know just how vulnerable we get when we are stricken, you need to act responsibly and with care.

The reason for that terror, when a man falls in love, is that he loses control. When a man loses control of anything, it can be akin to facing the prospect of death (to various degrees). So, if that man stays interested and invested, take that as a big sign, girls.

I have been known to clasp my hands in a giant fist, which I then shake triumphantly above my head. This high is then followed by the low of psychological warfare: how soon to call without being an overeager stalker, how late to call without finding they have already been kissing someone else.

No, I think you're probably right about us having no more than five emotions. Remember that a television uses just three colours (red, green and blue), but uses the additive color system to mix them into almost all other colours. So, we may actually only have hungry, thirsty, horny and dirty, but the more sensitive of us are able to muddy the waters enough to make ourselves seem more complex.

Oh, and The Grunt hit it exactly that falling in love causes a terrifying sense of not being in control. It's a bit like crying; whatever it is that is cathartic about crying for women is the exact thing that makes a man fear crying more than all kinds of sharp and venom-tipped things.

Hey, I stumbled across your blog from Grunt...

Men don't even seem to remember where their first kiss except that hopefully it was on the lips... never location of the city.

My first kiss with the man I am with now, kissed me on the cheek on our first date, I was like WTF I got gipped hardcore.

What do we feel on the first kiss? Duh...a raging hard on, usually. A man's life is about sex and food, after all. Not necessarily in that order of course, but those two activities cover probably mmmmm 99.8% of all conscious thoughts!
