I just found the blog of the author of Love and Respect, and found this little snip-it that made me think. It makes more sense in the context of the whole post here, but even on its own it is impacting. Blue and pink are distictions used to communicate the differeneces between ways guys think and hear thigns (blue) and the way girls think and hear things (pink).
"A little light bulb moment from the above for me: When you're a fan of something - this is pink or blue, I believe - we want to know the whole story. How many of you guys want to hear or watch detail of the game, or the car-rebuilding show, or that "super weapons" technical show on Discovery? How many of you can spout off sports stats or the specs of a fighter jet or a golf course? Our women - wives or girlfiends or daughters - are our fans - or they should be. They want to know everything about us. They want to know the whole story, all the details. When we snub them, we come off like a celebrity sneering at a waiting fan - and they are crushed. If we crush them a few times, they won't be our fans for long...then we wonder why?" (From http://emersonandsarah.blogspot.com/2009/08/brilliant-observations-by-two-men.html)
