It's also extremely interesting to hear them describe what behavior causes women to choose men. It lines up perfectly with therapist behavior. Long periods of time gazing at the other person, murmured encouragement to continue speaking. It was like therapy was designed for seduction.
I was telling my therapist about it, and he was laughing.
Hmmm... I also went into a long explanation about why I would never see him for therapy if he looked like Dr. Drew. It was ostensibly because the book also talks about how women who had good experiences with their fathers might be attracted to those who show the same general pattern of looks. And I was only attracted to the polar opposites, so did that mean I didn't have a good relationship with my father? My father was tall, with dark hair and big brown eyes. While I am attracted to blonde haired guys with crinkly blue eyes, not overly tall, and not in the teeniest bit intense like my father. With blonde arm hair that curls over their watchbands. (Sexiest part of a guy's anatomy.)
My husband laughs and quotes Sam from Cheers. "You've just described yourself. Congratulations. I hope you'll be very happy together."
But... Maybe it was in part to get back at him for the comment about the "Extreme Makeover" show he made last session?
