Perhaps a smile

Long ago I saw a cartoon in a magazine.

The image was looking down into a large bookstore with many aisles.
The store was very crowded, with individuals by themselves staring at different shelves.

Each person had a thought balloon over their head, all saying the same thing:

"I'm so lonely"

I’m lonely too.
Nice to meet you.

Agreed. Too bad there are also many people with a bubble over their heads saying 'unfairly high standards'. Anyway, welcome to the gang. Smile

So you think it's judgmental of me to only want to speak with hot nympho's? How unfair of you!
Crowd control situation! *machine gun fire intensifies*

Well, I suppose that depends a good deal upon what you call "unfair".

Based upon a pretty fair bit of experience looking at, for example, personals ads online placed by 
both men and women, I'd say a more accurate way to put it is these persons have "unrealistically high standards".

This might be due to the fact that in such a wealthy nation, we have so much choice, and so many choices are so good and 
there is so much competition to drive down price.

Perhaps this attitude emerges because our culture states that our personal value is directly measured by
what we are directly connected to, such as a specific home, car, job, income or relationship partner.

I am not an advocate of anyone being shamed into feeling completely hopeless, but I do think that everything 
has to be earned, and I do think that affection is earned by actions and traits.

It is obvious that an incredible number of people with virtues get overlooked and rejected.  
I could be mistaken, but I am pretty confident in saying that males bear 99 per cent of the brunt of rejection in all aspects of our society.

Women, by contrast,  appear now to be led by literally insane fanatics telling them that no matter if they fail or no matter if they deliberately make themselves unhealthy, they are perfect, and physically beautiful and equal and deserve special treatment and all the money and benefits they can carry away, and they are al victims of  men who are all evil.   And no, folks, that's not at all an exaggeration.


Men are no better. The reality of biology is that 99 per cent of men are literally superfluous, useless.
Yet all these profoundly mediocre men expect to be loved just like mommy did.   Sorry timmy.  Not likely to happen.

And of course there are the alphas, some of them clearly phony.

These are of course the men the women WILL accept, then next week they will be crying by the water
cooler about how he used her and dumped her, and all she REALLY wants is a NICE GUY.

No you don't.  If you wanted a nice guy, you had your pick of literally THOUSANDS.
And some of you do pick one, get married, make his life hell, and still have sex with the "bad boys" and get away with it.

I recognize myself in your words. 
I will be the first to admit that I tend to fall for the so-called bad boys. 
And yes, I have been the one to cry over a situation I chose to put myself in. 
I’m finding it hard to get out of that cliché. 
I think that I had that natural attraction to bad boys that almost every women out there has, but then it got amplified by my life. 
Oh well. We all got our struggles.

I would have to agree that it is a natural attraction.   Taking risks, often involving breaking rules, 
somewhat increases the chances of success.  Kill more deer, and you get your pick when you get back
to the cave.  Kill more rivals, same thing.  You are a murderer, but again, you get your pick of women when you get 
back to the cave.

And that is what nature intends. The most vicious, successful tough men get to pass on genes.  The other men die off.
Just the way it is, right up to modern life now.  Although most men live in silent desperate humiliation that they are pretty much worthless, they 
still work and give so we allow them to at least live.

What isn't natural is the bitterness or remorse or sadness of the woman after the risk taker
has "hit it and quit it".

You thought he was going to just hang around and keep killing deer just for you?
What's in it for him? Pretty much nothing, he has his pick of all the women, and you knew 
that BEFORE you offered him sex.

But it really is the icing on the cake that so many women INSIST that they want a "nice guy" 
saying this loudly and over and over.   So, why exactly do they treat nice guys like dirt?


I had an interesting conversation with a woman that I only met for casual sex, and only a few times.
I asked her something.  I had experienced one night stands with a variety of women, and I was confident
that in many instances she enjoyed herself just as much as I did.

Yet after that first time, the woman would vanish.  Now, I know some men only want one night
stands and put down women who have casual sex somewhat.

I'm not like that.  If something works, why not keep doing it?

My FWB explained it this way:  women don't ever come back because they are 
afraid. 

I was puzzled.

She elaborated. They know they're going to eventually get emotionally attached
and get hurt by that.

I suppose that may be true, but it sounds pretty strange.

That’s why it’s important to learn from your mistakes.
I didn’t stop being attracted to bad guys but I learned to stop expecting a different outcome.
Much harder to do then to say.
