30 Chick Flicks in 30 Days

What one guy learned about women while conducting that very experiment

Is it possible for a man to be more understanding of women after watching a marathon of chick flicks? Nick Waters, an Average Joe from Southern Oklahoma who has been married for seven years, would say the answer is a definite yes.

"Love is tender," Waters told Asylum.com after his recently concluded experiment, "30 Chick Flicks in 30 Days: One Guy's Exploration of Romance Through Movies Loved by Women." "And any real relationship is based on forgiveness, compassion and vulnerability."

Sounds very 1st Corinthians 13-esque, doesn't it? He also says he learned a lot more about the "lost art of romance," and he tells The Toronto Star, "My wife has told me she notices I have changed. I am much better at picking up her body language and she notices an improvement in the way I read her. I have learned what not to do in our marriage from watching these movies."
