Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

 "while the men related to and got to know each other via abstract concepts and discussion about outside events, women went straight to the core, asking questions about each other's life and wanting to learn about the person: who are you? what do you do? do I share anything with you? what do you think of x y z? would I like you as a friend?"

  Reporters!  Sheesh!

  Where are you living?

  How did you two (Migueru and Barbara) meet?

  What's your son's name?

  How could anyone not adore a fifteen-month-old child ?

  Did you like living in California?

  those and other "women's" questions were posed to Barbara, Migueru, or Barbara AND Migeru by?

Yes, proximity1, you are absolutely right and I was going to mention you, you were definitely on "the other side" in this aspect and I had lots of fun talking to you! I was talking about men's interaction, though, I didn't really mention so much the man-woman interaction... ;)

It is to say that me and Miguel have "spilled our guts" to you... but we haven't learned that much about you... :(. This will have to change, hopefully soon.

Just adding that Migeru indeed is a man, so I guess I was wrong, after all, and it's never a good idea to be making generalizations.

 That's because, being wanted in twenty-seven countries, I've had to learn to be circumspect in what I say about moi, my dear---if I may call you "my dear".

 This way, when you are questioned--perhaps even tortured, you'll be able to honestly say, "Hell! I (We) don't know anything else!"
