Obviously, that woman driver was taught to "keep the car between the lines"...only there were no lines between those gate posts (ha,ha).

Whereas I prefer to hang out with women, and talk about our horses :-)

to be kind...she was trying quickly to remove the air drag roof racks!

I agree that generally women are just interested in other people, not things.

But such an incredible gap...they can pick up on the slightest change in voice tone, read body language like a book, watching how your feet are pointed to see if you're interested in a girlfriend sitting next to them....etc.... but like mentioned before, crude jerking while driving, no subtle heater/air controls. If I lower a car window, I try to match the 2 sides for even flow. In a stronger headwind, I will slow down to save fuel and oil. I will read what direction the grass and tree tops, where they are blowing. most of all reading to avoid manhole covers, or any hole, crack, crease in the pavement that might hurt my car. Over kill perhaps, but in over 7 years, never have needed a front end alignment!
What really gets me from e harmony? I've learned that most woman check out the condition of a man's shoe!!!! That seems of course VERY silly to me!

Shoes!
Never wear brown shoes with black trousers, socks in sandals, white socks in anything, etc.
All the convenient choices are taken away once you enter a relationship.
(convenient being whatever is easiest to grab with early morning drowsiness)

It is almost like they take an interest in how they are perceived by other people, and how other people see you...

Maybe that is the key.
Don't say "You are driving erratically"
but "Your driving style would appear erratic to others".

Although, as a man, you are not supposed to be in the know about appearance that much, so beware.
Unless you show it by wearing the right shoes of course.

It ain't the shoes boys, it's the SIZE of the feet.

I find that VERY hard to believe! When I observe traffic the women vastly outnumber the men. They are ALWAYS tearing all over creation.

I dunno, 'cause I do that with women. One that is wearing running shoes, hiking/riding boots, &c is going to get a LOT more attention than one wearing six-inch heels :-)

I bet you will get a lot more attention wearing six-inch heels than running shoes
