http_build_query($query, null, null, PHP_QUERY_RFC3986); As noted before, with php5.3 the separator is & on some servers it seems.Normally if posting to another php5.3 machine this will not be a problem.In other words, men using sexually-loaded remarks are looking for a certain type of woman (an easy one).Similarly, at the other end of the scale, men who use character-revealing or culture-based openers are probably trying to show they are a good mate looking for a long-term partner.This can effectively allow men to make a quick assessment of a woman’s personality by their response to a particular type of approach.Those looking for a ‘bad mate’ might use a sexually-loaded remark or a compliment, while those wanting an extrovert should use a joke.Leading the field in crass openings are sexually-loaded remarks.
The study first asked participants to consider a series of scenarios in which men tried to strike up a conversation with a woman. Participants were then asked to rate how likely it was the conversation would continue on the basis of that opener.
These ‘lines’ were collated from a variety of sources and clustered into the following categories: Along with these vignettes and the Dating Partner Preference Test, participants were asked to fill in personality measures of their psychoticism (tendency for inappropriate emotional responses and recklessness), extraversion (being outgoing, gregarious, externally oriented) and neuroticism (the tendency to experience negative emotional states).
Now we’ve got all the information we need to see if there’s any connection.
I have focussed on women’s perceptions of male chat-up lines as in most cultures it’s mostly the men using the lines, although this is changing.
Perhaps to reflect this men’s perceptions of women’s chat-up lines were also included in this study.
