"And by the way, where do my platonic women friends dredge up their crew of male losers? ... I think there must be a club where all these sleepy narcissistic men hang out. I can't, I refuse to believe that this is what the male sex has come to. More likely, this is what the female sex is still attracted to." — Phillip Lopate, "Platonics" (from Bachelorhood)
Lopate, I've got some bad news for you ... you're on to something.
Just kidding! I've never been attracted to sleepy narcissistic men! Never!
But seriously, I love this essay on male-female relationships. He really nails it. What would Harry Burns and Sally Albright make of it though, I wonder?
