Absolutely, yes, it is a quick way to test for strength of character. Unfortunately, there are not many men who can handle being in an ongoing intimate relationship with a successful woman, so it is deflating each time this happens. In reality the person putting me in the “pilot” box could be dismissing me for other reasons having to do with stereotypes — such as “she must be conservative” (not true, in my case.) Mainly I hope for the opportunity to get to know the other person and have them get to know me a bit before they throw me into the “pilot” box. There is so much more to each human being than stereotypical images, preconceived notions and pre-packaged assumptions allow for.
