Actually, Brett, David is right. I have never seem a woman on this list
act "girly" in any way. I have, however, seen the men fall over
themselves to complement the women on the smallest insight (in hopes of
scoring points, no doubt). Of course, I went out of my way to meet with
Eva when she moved here to Seattle last spring, too. So I can't be to
critical of the men's attempts (my motivies are not always pure either ;-)

Sorry if this seems outdated--I've been away for a couple days.
