Love "sick": are woman just a test a man needs to pass?

(an image from that I just cannot forget)
I've been feeling a bit under the weather these past couple of days and have been confined to the couch, stuffing myself with lozenges and drowning my sorrows in orange juice. I finally had the time for that movie marathon that I've always promised myself, but never could get around to lately. Consequently, most of the movies were, yeah, you guessed it: romantic comedies

Soppy-predictable-yet-addictive love stories where boy meets girl, have some kind of physical attraction where love is confused with a little bit of lust, overcome an obstacle and fall into each others eager arms. VERY romantic. But that got me thinking: what happens afterwards? What happens when the hickeys fade and the butterflies stop flying? And why does that happen? Especially the whole why-part. And between my millions of tissues and orange peels, it came to me. I will keep it simple ;-)

A woman is like a test a man has to study for. Just imagine that chemistry or history test you had to prepare for at school. Some men try cramming as much information in the shortest period of time as they possibly can and that will be called the "One Night Stand". Then there are other men that prepare for the test weeks in advance. They study and study and although there are still a few things they are unsure of, they have most bases covered, feeling confident about writing that test. That is called "The 2-Week Wooing Process" where men are interested in you and what you have to say about your best girlfriend Lucy that just got a new apartment, they open the door for you, gently slide they're hands in that crook of your back to steer you forward and gaze deeply into your eyes telling you they are the beautiful shade of blue like the ocean after a storm. Something along those lines.

But when the test is finished: they forget all about what they studied! They sometimes remember some of the basic facts that can help them get by (barely!), but forgot all about the information that the long questions consist of and if they had to write the test again, they'll score below average and some might even fail miserably. Alas, these men don't dwell on they're failures for long! It's not in a man's nature; always keep moving forward, remember!

Maybe the test should be prolonged to a series of 4 - 400 papers. Maybe these guys should get tutors? Or maybe they're just not that good with tests to begin with ;-)

Am I right or am I right?!
