I just came across a interesting article from the UK Telegraph that stated something that most of us already know.

Men lose their minds speaking to pretty women.

I sure hope this study wasn’t too expensive because I could have given them the same information for the cost of an iced tea.   (Actually I probably would’ve given it for free.)

In any case I certainly didn’t need a fancy research lab to discover this.  I know this simply because I see it all the time with the various Men who travel to this part of the world in search of true love.

Now as fun as it may seem for you Gentlemen to take a spur of the moment road trip to Cloud 9 without your trusty little GPS in hand there is a serious side to this which all of you should pay close attention to.

Because getting lost in what you believe is love (but is actually lust or infatuation) can be a VERY EXPENSIVE and VERY DISAPPOINTING journey.

It usually starts with a man who is devoid of any feminine attention who starts corresponding with only a picture of some younger beauty on the Internet.

I can hardly find fault with them but it is simply way too easy for these Gentlemen to lose their minds, let their imaginations roam and believe that they have “found love”.

Now if he’s one of the lucky few who actually makes it over to the FSU to meets his lady then he’s really at risk for losing his marbles if he’s truly attracted to the girl standing before him.   Now I totally understand that these hazy feelings can be a very beautiful thing because Mother Nature can do blissful, wonderful things in matters of love and attraction.

But the flip side is this.

Lack of common sense can often bring about confusion and BAD Decision making.

So before any of you Gentlemen go flying off to marry the first girl who gives you any attention try to take a step back and realize that there is a powerful force in play that will most certainly impair your judgement as to what the best woman may be for you to build a future with.

ALWAYS keep your options open and try to meet as many everyday women as possible because..

Men lose their minds speaking to pretty women
Talking to an attractive woman really can make a man lose his mind, according to a new study.

The research shows men who spend even a few minutes in the company of an attractive woman perform less well in tests designed to measure brain function than those who chat to someone they do not find attractive.
Researchers who carried out the study, published in the Journal of Experimental and Social Psychology, think the reason may be that men use up so much of their brain function or ‘cognitive resources’ trying to impress beautiful women, they have little left for other tasks.
The findings have implications for the performance of men who flirt with women in the workplace, or even exam results in mixed-sex schools.
Women, however, were not affected by chatting to a handsome man.
This may be simply because men are programmed by evolution to think more about mating opportunities.
Psychologists at Radboud University in The Netherlands carried out the study after one of them was so struck on impressing an attractive woman he had never met before, that he could not remember his address when she asked him where he lived.
Researchers said it was as if he was so keen to make an impression he ‘temporarily absorbed most of his cognitive resources.’
To see if other men were affected in the same way, they recruited 40 male heterosexual students.
Each one performed a standard memory test where they had to observe a stream of letters and say, as fast as possible, if each one was the same as the one before last.
The volunteers then spent seven minutes chatting to male or female members of the research team before repeating the test.
The results showed men were slower and less accurate after trying to impress the women. The more they fancied them, the worse their score.
But when the task was repeated with a group of female volunteers, they did not get the same results. Memory scores stayed the same, whether they had chatted to a man or a woman.
In a report on their findings the researchers said: ‘We conclude men’s cognitive functioning may temporarily decline after an interaction with an attractive woman.’
Psychologist Dr George Fieldman, a member of the British Psychological Society, said the findings reflect the fact that men are programmed to think about ways to pass on their genes.
‘When a man meets a pretty woman, he is what we call ‘reproductively focused’.
‘But a woman also looks for signs of other attributes, such as wealth, youth and kindness. Just the look of the man would be unlikely to have the same effect.’
