“Men are leaders and women are followers.”
“Women are great listeners and men tune you out.”
“Men are tough and women are emotional.”

Clichéd opinions about gender and social roles for men and women damage relationships and keep people from truly and deeply connecting with one another. Seemingly harmless myths common in today’s culture can adversely affect the way both men and women interact, such as

  • Women talk more than men
  • Men are thinkers and women are feelers
  • Women are romantic and men are practical

Men Are Slobs, Women Are Neat takes on these and other misconceptions to help readers see the truth behind real gender differences and how to work toward relationship success.
