Washington, D.C. attracts ‘high estrogen’ men: tenth-best city to find romantic guy
The Daily Caller ^ | August 20, 2011 | Laura Donovan

Posted on 08/22/2011 12:54:52 PM PDT by Tolerance Sucks Rocks

Disgusted by late night text messages, embarrassing blow-offs, and never receiving the phone call you were promised? Leading dating site Chemistry.com has a list of the top ten cities full of romantic, expressive, “high estrogen” men who probably wouldn’t slip into cad territory.

Though bursting with government employees, politicians, political journalists, and all things polarizing and serious, Washington, D.C. is tenth on the list, nine spots below perpetually romantic San Francisco.

Asked how bureaucratic, soulless Washington ever earned a spot on a list of romantic cities, Chemistry.com’s Dr. Helen Fisher told The Daily Caller that D.C. draws a lot of sensitive men who are concerned about the state of the world.

“Washington is, I suppose, a little bit surprising,” the anthropologist told TheDC, adding that 10 million people were surveyed for the list. “Except, an awful lot of [educated] people wind up in Washington, I think. And, I think a lot of the not-for-profits pull in a lot of the high-estrogen types who really sort of care about the state of the planet and the state of the polar bears and the state of the United States. So I’m not surprised that Washington does attract men who are sort of the big, broad, long-view thinkers who are good with verbal and people skills. I think Washington is a town that thrives on that. Along with that, they tend to be more romantic.”

Keeping with the Washington theme, Fisher said former president Bill Clinton is a high-estrogen, emotionally aware person.

“I think that Bill Clinton is a good example of a high-estrogen man,” Fisher explained. I mean, he cried at his daughter’s wedding. His wife didn’t.

I dont think “sensitivity” equals estrogen

This reads like satire, but I know that it is real as I have seen it first hand.

Yes, doctor. I mean, what’s not romantic about a guy who cheats on his wife 1000 times, plays “cigars” with his intern, and forces himself upon at least 3 other women? What’s not to like?

Always afraid to stand up for themselves and expected someone else to protect their sorry asses.

Women find me highly romantic and I am as “high testosterone” as they come.

I have a hairy chest. I am aggressive. I am tall broad shouldered with high density muscle. I have a very strong libido. All this is associated with high testosterone.

But I buy flowers, pay for dinner, write notes, say nice things, I listen, I ask questions, I massage, I comfort, I cuddle.

Women like those things.

Women also like “romance” to include being picked up as if she weighed nothing, thrown around artfully on the bed, and the occasional vulgar display of masculinity and/or virility.

Masculine high testosterone men are plenty romantic.

Somewhat related to politics and sex and who is better in bed, Democrat men or Republican men.......

One thing about Clinton I can say is that I never though of him as a girly man, just a liar.

Now Gore, Edwards, and Obama... different story.

Well, the drawback is that D.C.-area women are often rude and flaky-- and have no compunction about blowing a guy off.

And another bad bit is that most of them around here are clueless liberals.

...D.C. draws a lot of sensitive men who are concerned about the state of the world.

In other words, flaming liberals.

I went to high school in DC (Navy brat) and since Dad retired from the Navy there (while I was in college), I still have family in that area.

I visit at least once a year and am always reminded of why I got out of that place as soon as I could.

There are lots of exceptions, but the overall feel of the DC area is one of paranoia and unfriendliness. Lately, it seems that anger and resentment have ramped up there as well. I always want to tell the angry ones, "Well, you voted for him."

And I bet she loves her manly man who does things in a manly manner straight out of the manly manual! ;)

Masculine testosterone laden tall well muscled and high libido men; women tend to like that sort. And there is nothing about a manly man that is not romantic.

A real man is a gentleman who treats women like ladies.

“Ha!” I say, “Ha Ha!”

(Dr. Helen Fisher, “social anthropologist” is a professor at Rutgers University! What a feather in their cap!)

Yeah, right. Bill Clinton was really emotionally aware when Monica was giving him a sensitivity session in the Oral Office, not to mention his emotional sensitivity in using an unlit cigar for unauthorized purposes.

There are a TON of cads here. Too many well-educated and successful men in DC are very spoiled, shallow, Christless, and brutal.

The high-estrogen ones, of course, are of terrified of strong conservative women who have guns. And we aren’t interested in their soft hairless liberal selves, either.

Ugh. Fortunately, I haven’t been single in decades, so don’t much care what cities are romantic .. but DC has become nauseatingly ‘metrosexual’ in recent years. Love that SF is #1. Says a whole lot about the thrust, as it were, of this poll.

IOW, the kind of guy liberal women claim to desire, yet treat like crap every time they get their hands on one? That kind?

Some advice for you younger guys out there: Don’t try to alter your personality to be an “Estrogen Male” because you’ll only attract women you won’t be happy with. Just figure out who you are, and be that person. YMMV.
