PSYC495: Too Good to Be True

A decade after “The Psychology of Men” @ APU

Way back in 2008, I taught a full semester course on the psychology of men at Azusa Pacific University. As part of the course, we created a blog, The Psych of Men. One post is about Abraham Lincoln, including this quote:

“A woman is the only thing I am afraid of that I know will not hurt me.“

My students added several interesting comments to the post.

Surprisingly, the site still gets a fair number of visitors. Nearly 8 years later, Will from Oklahoma commented,

I am 23 and i can tell you why men fear women, women are really wonderful and we are afraid to screw up you know like that afraid of something that seems too good to be true and at the same time is alive and talking to you. God really knew what he was doing just think how Adam reacted Genesis 2:23 “This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh” this was basically a gasp of amazement at God’s work.

Yes, “too good to be true” is a little scary.

For both of you. You desire him, but you’re both easily influenced by the culture around you. Which leaves you confused about a healthy man.
