With age and experience comes wisdom.
The challenge is not to buy into too much "gender differences" but rather focus on people as "individuals".
The more time you spend around a person the better you get to know (them) for (who) they are and not (what) they are.
There is no "one size fits all".
There are no real "gender shortcuts".
Most people are a product of (their environment and life experiences). One man's opinion! :)
