Isn’t it odd how common sense is in fact so rare? The human brain is wired to seek simple answers because complexity wasn’t something we had to deal with for 99% of our evolutionary history and thinking burns up precious calories — which back then were scarce. But our search for simple answers usually leads us astray, hence the need for amusing correctives like your article. Will you write another on “Signs That Tell You She’s NOT Into You?” For example, screaming followed by backing away to the nearest exit, vomiting uncontrollably, shouting “keep back” while groping in one’s handbag for a lethal weapon, etc.?
