Vincent,  I think the only person projecting here is you. You refer to
the 'average guy'. The word 'average' itself implies that statistics
have been collected and analyzed. Can you please show us your
statistics, and how you collected them, to determine what the average
guy is interested in? And what about the average girl, what is she
interested in?  If you are merely citing the work of other researchers,
please include citations.
