My wife and I were out driving the other day, and I made the observation to her that whenever I saw two people out walking together, it was always either a man and a woman, or two women. It was never two guys. And most of the time, by far, it was two women.
We then saw a few more couples out walking, and every couple was two women.
I then carefully observed the walkers in our neighborhood over the next few days, and every time it held true that if it was a pair, it was either two women, or a man and a woman. Only once did I see two guys out walking together (and this is based on dozens of observations), and those two guys appeared to be Villanova students.
My dime store philosophy is that women are more social by nature, while guys are more loners. I know my wife loves to go walking with other women in the neighborhood; when I went for my daily walks this past summer, it was just me, myself, and I.
Maybe there’s nothing to it, but I found it interesting…
