Why Men Don't Apologize
Wed, 09-29-2010 - 11:07am

Here's an interesting article from USA Today called Why Men Don't Say "I'm sorry"?:  http://www.usatoday.com/yourlife/sex-relationships/2010-09-29-apologies29_ST_N.htm

Have you ever noticed that women tend to apologize more than men?  Apparently, it's not because we do more things "wrong," we just think we do.

The University of Waterloo in Ontario conducted two studies of 186 people and divided them by gender.  They found that men are less likely to be offended than women.  They also found that men were less likely to believe that they had done wrong.

What do you think about the study?

Or, could it be that men are just more stubborn? ;)
