We're pretty used to the idea that women are expected to talk in a manner that's warmer, friendlier and more polite. It does ring a bell should somebody mention the fact that female students tend to give comments in class, starting with tentative phrases like, "this is just my opinion," or "I could be wrong, but.." Male students always seem to be able to say more direct things.
But in a recent study, where a professor analyzed the emails of students, it suggested that the whole 'tentative' issue was depending on what kind of topic it was on. For example, gender-neutral topics, like restaurants, had no difference in tentativeness. But both women and men became more tentative when writing about the opposite gender-stereotype topics.
However, how people write is different then how people speak, and different people experience different levels of tentativeness in class. A reason behind why people may be tentative could be (See, I'm being tentative here) to avoid offending others, as well as keeping their comments objective. Another reason seems to be more of a, "I know my shit here, so listen to me.."
But most of us can agree on one thing: that it can get a tad annoying when students keep making comments in class, and begin their sentences with, "I feel.." or "In my opinion." And the moral of the story here is that men can be as equally tentative as women.
On the off chance that given the decision, we're almost certain nobody would pick to be in a long distance relationship. Without a doubt, non-appearance influences the heart to become fonder, yet we're calling bullsh*t on that one: being separated from the individual you adore is hard. What's more, to influence it to work - and keep it a sound, useful and sexual, you need to invest effort, responsibility and well, get somewhat innovative. Read more

We worry about things that we have no control over. All of these things may mean we’re not taking opportunities that are presented to us and we’re not living life to the full because we’re always looking for the negative. Read more
