Not long ago I did two things. I read an article in Frankie on internet dating, in which the author* lamented the phenomenon of men wanting to meet women with "no baggage", among other things. I also watched a documentary narrated by David Attenborough which showed the incredible courtship rituals of the birds of paradise of New Guinea. As I watched the male birds preen and fail to win over the female every time, it reminded me of those men that the Frankie writer described, and it made sense to combine the two.
* I don't have a copy of issue 41 so I can't cite the author unfortunately.
