Mike Pence got some social media ribbing when we learned that he never eats alone with a woman other than his wife. It turns out, that’s not such a rare philosophy. According to a recent poll, Americans are wary of being alone with the opposite sex. “The results show the extent to which sex is an implicit part of our interactions. They also explain in part why women still don’t have the same opportunities as men. They are treated differently not just on the golf course or in the boardroom, but in daily episodes large and small, at work and in their social lives.” (My wife and I have a simple rule. You can hang out with anyone you want, as long as you take the kids with you.)
