When it comes to falling in love, a lot of guys fallhard: According toa new studyof over 10,000 people, 48 percent of men say they’ve fallen in love at first sight, while only 28 percent of women said the same.

So are guys just more romantic than we are? I’m not so sure. Maybe men are simply more apt to feel those fluttery butterflies right away because guys are more visual creatures while women typically take some time to get warmed up. (Hey, just like during sex!)
At least for me, a man gets more-or less- physically attractive after I’ve gotten a sense of his personality and sense of humor. I’m totally projecting my own views on this study right now, but I would guess that the falling in love feeling many men report might have just as much to do with their hearts as their, erm, loins.
Because, in general, guys seem to be guided by their below-the-belt brains when it comes to relationships, for better and for worse: The survey also found that one third of men have had sex with another woman while they were in a relationship versus only 19 percent of women.
So, are guys just more impulsive when it comes to sex and relationships? Tell us your opinion in the comments below.
