your friend's husband hit on you, what would you do? if your friend's husband hit on you, what would you do? tell your friend, not tell, how would you address it? frisky.com, there's a dot com for everything. anyway they talked about ways to handle the situation. >> first of all, don't blame yourself. you can't help it you're gorgeous and hot -- >> and your cleavage is out. >> and your friend isn't, apparently. that's what they say, no one is perfect. you got to remember that. this is, i guess, one of the solutions, should you never be alone with your friend's spouse? >> after that, no. >> choose to stay away. would you tell your friend, or not? >> it did happen to me one time. >> i did? >> yeah. >> what did you do? >> it's such a creepy feeling. they were not close friends, but it was a friend's husband. >> what did you do? >> act like i didn't hear him and move to another room. >> the question is -- they also say, too, i would stay away from the person, but i don't think i would say anything.
because -- >> the guys have some things about that. >> if my friend's husband hit on me, i would tell him i am very flattered, but it's not that kind of party. >> the thing is, it's a slippery slope. then you say something to her, she may take his side. >> you're the femme fatale that brought it on. >> but you do need to stay away from him. as a guy, come on. there's a lot of women in the world. do not tell her that her husband hit on you. you will be the enemy from that point forward. >> they'll think you brought it on, what did you do, or you miss read it, he didn't hit on you, what were you thinking? >> his response will be honey, she's a who are. >> i'm okay with that. >> i did nothing. >> i'm a divorced guy -- >> what does a divorced bachelor think?

you? >> -- the trickiest spot he's giving just for men. there's actually a symbol. there's a male only parking lot. look at him smiling and pointing. what's wrong with him? >> i say tase him and vote him out. >> anyway, he says it's too complicated for women to learn to park in those spots, so it's just for men. >> too many difficult angles and too close to the cement pillars and garages. >> they say the spaces for women are wider, well-lit, and closer to the exit. stop laughing. >> what's wrong with them? >> you guys think that's funny? >> we did research on this topic, actually, you said this was informed by what again? >> the whole women can't drive thing, you know where that came from? >> where? >> science. just want to make sure. when you get bad, make sure you get the right black guy.

the battle of the sexes is a war going on since the beginning of time. why are men and women so different? >> and will we ever understand each other? helen fisher is terrific. she's the author of "why him? why her?" >> so nice to have you here. maybe you can make sense out of all this for us. is there really a definitive answer? >> sure. there's all kinds of answers. i think we should begin to bust the myths we know about men. we spent 50 years busting myths about women. i think we should bust myths about men. one of them is that i think men are more romantic than women are. they fall in love faster than women do. because they are so visual. >> you say they're visual. is that falling in love? or is that falling in lust? >> it's falling in love. because we put them in a brain scanner and study the brain circuits, and it is falling in love. >> really? >> how long does that last? >> overnight. >> men are two and a half more times more likely to kill themselves when a relationship is over. not only when they fall in love,
they also want to do more kissing in public. it's called mate guarding. they want to show everybody this is theirs. they want to move in sooner. they want to introduce the person to their relatives, and they have more intimate conversations with their wives and lovers. than they do with their -- and women have more intimate conversations with their girlfriends. we don't share as much with our men. >> let's talk about surprising stuff. >> it is. >> let's look at photos. this depicts what you're talking about. first pictures of two women talking face-to-face. i guess this is how women discuss. they look at each other in the eye. they're close. >> we do it face-to-face. we do what we call the anchoring gaze and we talk. and it comes from millions of years of holding a baby in front of your face, educating with words. >> let's look at two men. this is how two men discuss things. okay. maybe not. there they are. >> the guy on the right looks up. the guy on the left will look away. i think it comes from millions
of years from sitting behind the bush on the grass sides of africa trying to hit the buffalo in the head with a rock. can't be talking to your neighbor while you do it. >> look at the third picture. >> it's funny when you're talking to a man. sometimes when they're walking they reveal more because they're not looking at you. >> ah. >> if you want a really good conversation with a man, do it while he's driving a car. he can't go. you're side by side. you're not looking at him. >> he's look the way he likes which is straight ahead. >> i love it. our third picture is a man and a woman. let's check this one out. she's all wrapped up in him, and he's totally not. wouldn't you say she's more romantic? >> no, no, no. she's doing women's intimacy. she's trying to reach him and she's feeling invaded, because he's trying to reach her. he's talking as if she's sitting next to him. they're looking forward together, and that's the way men can talk. >> we took a quiz that was going to tell us about our personalities. and we don't know the answers at all. >> it's a questionnaire that i
did. 10 million people have taken it in 40 countries. i'm americaning the traits linked with four brain systems. >> what did you learn about us? >> you're very high estrogen and very low testosterone. >> i'm post menopausal. >> but the brain is built in the womb as estrogen is building in the brain, it's building more connections between the front and the back, between the two sides, giving you -- giving you both your verbal skills. >> it asks about empathy. it asks about mechanical skills. directions. >> you have a tremendous amount of empathy. you wouldn't be able to do your job. that's estrogen related. i'm not surprised you can't park your car. both of you were very low on the testosterone scale. >> then why do i have so much facial hair? >> you're a girl, face it. >> thank you so much. >> that was lots of fun. thank you for coming to see us. all right. we're going to find out if
our guys agree with this. >> do they? >> i don't know. they're going to give us some advice or whatever they call it for all the ladies out there. oh my. he's strangling his child. ♪ i have a cold, and i took nyquil, but i'm still stubbed up.
