How to appear romantic and intellectual

Do you want other people to look at you favorably? Then lie! Lie about what you’ve read! At least, that’s what men do in the hope that they appear romantic and/or intellectual.

As reported here by the BBC , “Nearly half of all men and one-third of women have lied about what they have read to try to impress friends or potential partners, a survey suggests. Men were most likely to do this to appear intellectual or romantic, found the poll of 1,500 people by Populus for the National Year of Reading campaign.

The men polled said they would be most impressed by women who read news websites, Shakespeare or song lyrics. Women said men should have read Nelson Mandela's biography or Shakespeare.
