Preventative Medicine – Part III

baby2

Before I move on in this study I’m going to take a moment to clarify the purpose of this timeline /schedule. It’s important to remember that this chronology is meant to serve as a general direction for women’s maturation and the priorities of attraction they put on men’s attributes during these phases of their lives.

By design this graph isn’t intended to be a specific outline to account for every woman’s individual circumstances, but a somewhat predictable series of phases coordinated with events, behaviors and mental schemas that occur during those phases. The perspective I’ve approached in this outline is one of an unattached (long term single) or semi-monogamous woman with the personal and social options to leverage her sexual agency as well as a subjective degree of control over the direction of her life (or the strong impression that she actually has this control).

Of course, it would be ignorant to assume all women’s individual circumstances would follow the same series of instances subject to the same set of circumstances. In any one woman’s life there are far too many subjective eventualities to consider that would fit into the scope of a series of articles (I could actually dedicate a book to this topic alone), which is why I’ve detailed these phases in as general terms as I can fashion them.

Uses

To the point though, it is up to any one Man to determine how a woman’s personal conditions, her past decisions and the results of her past discretions or indiscretions contribute to what is motivating her along this general outline of life phases. It’s entirely possible, if not likely, a woman would have had a prior marriage or be a single-mother during any or all of the phases I’ve detailed. It’s also not unlikely a woman might be a serial monogamist or married during the duration of her party years. The art of determining what motivates a woman according to the phase of life she’s in, her socialization and how her circumstances modify or are modified by it is what the ‘A’ in PUA represents – artistry.

The important part of determining what motivates women’s behaviors and mindsets is to frame these personal circumstances against this outline of women’s life phases. In general, the phases and progression of maturity (socially, personally and biologically), her prioritization of attractive male attributes, and the resulting purpose-driven behaviors don’t change much for women as a whole. It’s when you consider how an individual woman’s circumstances work within or against this progression, and how you as a Man can first, determine that woman is worth varying degrees of your investment, and then better leverage what you know about her conditions and the phase of life she’s experiencing to your (or your mutual) benefit.

If you browse the backlog of my posts you’ll see how I frame individual observations and understandings of specific topics as they relate to both women’s stage of life and their circumstance. This has been a part of my writing process since I began making forum posts on SoSuave, but in real life, in the moment, you need to have a basic grasp of who you’re dealing with, and what motivates her according to what priorities she places on men and herself at any phase of life – as well as considering the social influences she’s subject to.

Who cares?

Right now all this probably seems like a lot of effort and hassle; “Why the fuck even bother Rollo? If I had to untangle a chick’s psyche and socialization every time I want a new piece of ass I’d just be a monk.” In truth, on various levels of consciousness, you already make most of theses assessments about a woman when you invest any degree of effort (Game) in her – even if just to get laid. You may not realize you’re doing it, and your investment in a woman is itself modified by your own conditioning, your deficiencies and strengths, but rest assured, you are making these assessments. The difference now is that you have an outline to better be consciously aware of the framework you’re making these assessments in – that’s a cornerstone of red pill truth.

Understanding what motivates a woman at any phase of her maturation isn’t terribly difficult to grasp,…once you yourself have experienced that phase with a woman. And that’s the intent of my developing this outline, to help (younger) men without the benefit of this prior, often detrimental, experience make informed assessments about the motivations of women they may be interested in at various stages of their maturity.

Equally important is an understanding of how the social conventions and rationales a fem-centric society endorses and propagates for women factors into their own ideologies, as well as how they absolve women’s already solipsistic nature from personal accountability as she matures. Also important is the understanding of the guilt and regret that results from not having lived up to the expectations these social conventions convince women they should be entitled to have experienced by a certain developmental phase. Women tend to be both the perpetrators and (later) the victims of these conventions by design.

With the rise of instant communication, only recently have men began to connect the dots with regards to how these social conventions have been established to correlate with the decisions women make for themselves and the fluidity with which these conventions allow them to rationalize the outcome of those decisions. Hypergamy has always been Hypergamy for women, but until the sexual revolution’s ‘liberation’ of women from the societal and ideological balances that previously kept Hypergamy in check, there was less need for the myriad social conventions now necessary to balance women’s culpability (psychologically and sociologically) in that new ‘freedom’.

The Security Phase

Women’s priorities for attraction (not necessarily arousal) are dependent upon the necessities dictated by which phase of life she’s currently in.

One reason I tag men’s peak SMV at or around 36-38 is partially due to their relative capacity for having attained the characteristics and accomplishments that women find the most desirable for long term commitment at about the same time women are the most necessitous of those qualities.

As women approach the Epiphany Phase (later the Wall) and realize the decay of their SMV (in comparison to younger women), they become progressively more incentivized towards attraction to the qualities a man possesses that will best satisfy the long-term security of the Beta Bucks side of her Hypergamy demands.

Too many blue pill / purple pill dipshits like to dismiss the SMV realities my graph depicts by comparing the desires of an SMV peaked 23 y.o. girl with the vested value an SMV peaked man represents to women’s overall, dualistic-need Hypergamy. What maximizes the SMV of a woman in her peak isn’t equal to what maximizes the SMV peak of men.

During what I term the security phase, women’s prioritization of attraction shifts to a man’s potential for provisioning.  While the new found attraction to intrinsic qualities of a man are overtly exaggerated as appealing to women during this phase, it’s essentially a man’s proven capacity to provide excessively for himself and a potential mate and family that are key to this attraction. These are qualities an SMV peaked man is socially expected to possess, and socially expected to deliver for a woman precisely at the time in which she finds herself the most necessitous of these qualities and provisioning.

It is during the security phase women will begin to alter their self-expectations, as well as overtly bemoan their frustrations about their own inability to secure commitment from what they perceive would be a socially equitable male. The social conventions already in place for women in this phase make them comfortable in attempting to shame men into compliance with their long term security needs. This is the phase you will most likely hear a woman complain about “men’s fragile egos”, men being threatened by ‘strong independent women®‘ or some other frustration about men not cooperating with their rapidly decaying, dualistic sexual strategy.

Settling

Security anxiety and the conflict a woman experiences with her SMV decay forces two outcomes for her; she can continue to believe her SMV is still comparative to her intersexual competitors (another social convention intended to placate unrealistic women and further postpone an LTR commitment), or she can settle on a hypergamously substandard man who’ll gratefully embody what the provisioning aspect of her hypergamy demands. If she’s followed the Alpha Fucks schedule during her party years it’s also possible she finds herself as a single mother seeking a provider male to assist in the parental investment her Alpha gene provider wasn’t (or is a limited) part of.

I should mention that the Transition and Security phases are a point at which most men’s (i.e. Betas) feminized conditioning comes to fruition for the Feminine Imperative. The Beta providers who’ve been patiently awaiting their moment of sexual vindication find their moment of peak attraction – and not uncommonly with the same women who had no use for them during their party years.

But the well conditioned Beta is nothing if not patient and dutiful in his feminine-primary purpose and it is at this phase he begins to see dividends for his steadfastness in supporting the feminine cause. His willingness to forgive a woman’s party years “indiscretions”, he believes, will be an investment in Relational Equity any ‘rational’ woman will appreciate.

It’s important to understand that the social engineering of the Feminine Imperative conditions Beta men to be predisposed to this (and/or White Knight) mentality at precisely the moment women need his provisioning the most – the point her SMV decays and his is in ascendency.

During the Security Phase, affluence, provisioning capacity and the status that should be associated with it become a primary attractant for women. The want for physical appeal and arousal are still a factor in attraction, but indicators of maturity, affluence, and other intrinsic qualities become a priority. That isn’t to say a random short term mating opportunity with an arousing Alpha would be ignored (especially around her ovulation cycle), but long term security takes precedence.

Women who consolidate on monogamous commitment during this phase (or in their Epiphany Phase) generally run through a series of mental self-rationalization for their decision to marry the Good Dad, rather than the Good Genes father. This is an effort women engage in to justify to themselves for consolidating on the security side of their hypergamous sexual strategy. Once children are part of her reality this mental subroutine has to be forced to the periphery of her attentions, but it is a psychological conflict she’s either going to resolve by eventually leaving her provider male (and seek out her Alpha widow substitute) or convince herself and her hypergamous conscience that she has in fact optimized her hypergamy with the male she settled on.

As a woman matures into her late security phase, and her offspring become more self-sufficient, it’s at this point she becomes more self-critical and retrospective of her Epiphany Phase, and more realistic about her true reasonings for experiencing it.

The Development Phase

From The Curse of Potential:

Because a woman’s capacity to attract her hypergamous ideal decays with every passing year, her urgency demands an immediacy with a Man embodying as close to that ideal as possible in the now.

Hypergamy takes a big risk in betting on a man’s future potential to become (or get close to being) her hypergamous ideal, so the preference leans toward seeking out the man who is more made than the next.

The problem with this scenario as you might guess is that women’s SMV depreciates as men’s appreciates — or at least should appreciate. The same hypergamy that constantly tests and doubts the fitness of a man in seeking its security also limits his potential to consistently satisfy it.

From the security into the developmental phase is generally the time during which a woman has satisfied the security needs side of her hypergamy (Beta Bucks) with a man she consolidated a long term security on during her Epiphany-Transition Phase.

Before I elaborate further I should point out that this particular phase can sometimes precede the Epiphany-Transition Phases for women who by circumstance (e.g. an unplanned pregnancy), personal conviction, or simply pairing with a man she believes has such future SMV potential, or believes is so far above her own foreseeable SMV (looks, affluence or status/fame) that she feels compelled to consolidate on him. This early security phase may also be the result of a particularly bad experience a woman in her party years had with a prior Alpha – the emotional trauma of which convinced her to connect with an accessible Beta orbiter who was patient enough (and fortunate enough) to be his dutiful, forgiving and supportive self in the right place at the right time.

Most commonly however this phase usually occurs within a 7 to 9 year window just after a woman consolidates on (or should have consolidated on) a long-term security prospect male; and this usually after her transitioning from her party years and dealing with the urgency of finding that prospective male.

It’s important to delineate the circumstances which affect women who’ve successfully paired prior to this phase from the women who remain single, never-marrieds or early divorces. Between the ages of 27 and 37 these circumstances define how a woman engages and copes with her development and redevelopment phases.

The 7 Year Itch

For this 7 to 9 year stretch a married woman will likely content herself with some semblance of what fem-centrism defines for her as domesticity. That may likely include a working/motherhood role, but for the most part the vestiges of her party years usually become something she’d rather not be reminded of, particularly so if she’s settled on a provider-male who doesn’t tingle her the way her former Alpha lovers did, and she gradually tires of his whiney wonderment at why she’s not as sexual with him now that they’re married with children.

There’s a very interesting social convention that accompanies this phase for the married woman, there was even an old movie dedicated to it, it’s called The 7 Year Itch. It was a cute movie, but it was based on a very real psychological phenomenon. The cutesy social convention revolves around men’s developing a wandering eye for strange vagina after mysteriously being married for 7 (a magic number) years. The reality is that most marriages tend to dissolve at two stage, after the 7 year mark and then again at the 20 year mark.

Primarily this is due to a couple having had at least one child (possibly 2) and after that kid reaches 7 and is becoming more autonomous men and women do some relationship evaluation. From an evolutionary perspective this would be the point at which a child is more or less self-sufficient with a minimum investment on the part of a male, but in contemporary relationships it’s also the point at which a woman has had time enough to reevaluate her Epiphany Phase decision to pair with the provider (father of her children or otherwise).

Just to be complete, the 20 year mark is generally the point at which both parents become ‘Empty Nesters’ and a second reevaluation takes place. More on this in part IV.

The Path to Spinsterhood

For women unable or unwilling to settle, compromise or otherwise consolidate on a long term monogamy, her security phase becomes a personal effort in generating that security for herself. This security may come with some help from a generous, fem-centric state, or with the help of child support and / or alimony from a marriage or pregnancy prior to this phase, and of course she may entirely ignore the dictates of her biological clock (fertility window) and double down on her own feminine-masculinized conditioning by providing (what she believes is) exclusively for herself. These are the origins of the Hyenas.

Since Roissy so eloquently outlined this woman’s demographic, I’ll finish here with his outline of 31-34 year old unmarried women:

31 to 34 year olds

In some ways, women in the 31-34 age range are the toughest broads to game. (By “toughest”, it is meant “most time consuming”.) It’s counterintuitive, yes, but there are factors at work besides her declining beauty which mitigate against the easy, quick lay. For one, it is obviously harder to meet single 31-34 year old women than it is to meet single younger women. Marriage is still a pussy-limiting force to contend with for the inveterate womanizer, but Chateau apprentices are hard at work battling the scourge of mating market disturbances caused by the grinding and churning of the marriage machine.

But the bigger reason 31-34 year olds are harder to game than any other age group of women has to do with the wicked nexus of entitlement and self-preservation that occurs at this age in women. When you combine a disproportionate sense of entitlement fueled by years of feminism, steady paychecks and promotions, and cheerleading gay boyfriends with suspicions of every man’s motives and a terrible anxiety of being used for a sexual fling sans marriage proposal, you get a venom-spitting malevolent demoness on guard against anything she might perceive as less than total subjugation to her craving for incessant flattery and princess pedestaling.

[…] “I have an easier time bedding and dating 23 year olds than I do 33 year olds.”

This defies all logic until you see it through the eyes of the hamster sweating its fluffy ass off in a woman’s brain. (Poor little creature must be pooped out by the mid-30s.) Sure, a 33 year old is not as hot as the 23 year old version of herself, but her ASD is through the roof, as is her self-conception as a hot marriage-worthy commodity. Many older women will tell themselves that their experience, maturity, accomplishments and financial stability mean they should be way more valuable to men seeking wives than some young babe on the take. Of course, they have to tell themselves this because reality isn’t making it easy to believe.

These are the kind of women who have sexual flings with college guys, because they can psychologically box those men in as “purely for fun” adventures. But the men the 31-34 year old women really want are the older, established men who will give them a marriage proposal and a family. This is why it is counterintuitively harder to game the older woman who still retains a vestige of her youthful attractiveness: she wants and expects so much more than the younger woman.

I’ve figured the whole thing out, or at least this part. The reason young women are so strongly into serial monogamy is because the way women love is by making men into babies (as it feels to the woman). It used to be that psychologists thought it was actually having babies that made women this way “My husband comes home from work, and expects me to feed him. Then at night he wants me to touch him. Ugh! He’s such a baby!” But it happens on schedule whether she has children or not: after the short honeymoon period, he is… Read more »

Interesting analysis. I dumped a 34 year old divorced woman I was seeing (no kids) because the ink was barely dry on her divorce and she was already pushing me into a major commitment 4 months into seeing each other. She was so pushy and needy. Initially she was open to meeting and going out, but I had to have tight game because she was all about being religious and down on sex etc. As it turned it out my game was tight and I banged her on our 4th meet up. But honestly…I found her annoying: 34, bitchy, pushy.… Read more »

In relevance to the “7 to 9 year” stretch Rollo documents, I almost feel pity for the vast numbers of women I saw on nights out from years previous who clearly held intimate tastes towards bad boys, edgy looking and/or men with extreme handsome looks. Some of these women were not even as glamorous back then as their target men in relative gender terms, but it didn’t prevent them from leading with their hearts and sexual urges. Then I see the same woman today with a couple of kids – and an expression of frustration, resentment and “what ifs” written… Read more »

“The difference now is that you have an outline to better be consciously aware of the framework you’re making these assessments in – that’s a cornerstone of red pill truth.” Rollo, I think the ultimate utility of the graphs and timelines is not for comparison, but for illumination. The red-pill truths help to focus vision, making more apparent the drivers of behaviors that otherwise would remain dimly-seen, embedded in the randomness of life. Thus these graphs do not provide outlines in the sense of templates, which is how people usually understand the concept of outline, but as highlighting, or more… Read more »

I’ve see a lot of married couple in my church divorce as soon as their children are either in college or moved out completely. This is a sad phenomenon as more than likely, one is left alone without any real hope of finding another mate. Usually, it is the ex-wife who ends up with the short end of the stick as her beauty is gone and all she has are memories and the occasional visit from her grown children. I don’t know if these cases were tied to women going through a security stage or not, but it is clear… Read more »

So what’s the endgame Rollo? By subscribing to your Preventative Medicine plan, men can and will protect themselves from being casualties of the Feminine Imperative. But what are we ultimately striving for? Is it to remain in a perpetual state of plate-spinning bliss? Do we game the older hens and then leave them clucking when they make their stake for commitment? Do we just ignore women unless they’re under 27 and down to fuck? I’m not trying to be confrontational. I’m genuinely curious as to what you think the ultimate goal for a man should be in relation to women,… Read more »

@jf12 – Wives making husbands into babies. Insightful… And true… I’ve seen it again and again… And prior to RP truths was almost a victim of it myself. Women would probably not agree with the phraseology however. They would probably prefer “taming their man” or being “nurturing”, but the result is the same. I saw it with my grandfather when his wife passed away. He was helpless. Didn’t know how to work any appliance in the home, take his meds, dress himself, nothing.

Rollo – sorry to hear about your Greyhounds. That sucks.

Haven’t had time to work through this one yet – but will shortly…But wanted to jump in to suggest that the Gwyneth Paltrow-Chris Martin ‘conscious uncoupling’ would fit squarely into an analysis like this. When they married, she was 31. He was 27, and likely one of the highest-status ‘betas’ in the world. He’s adamant he never cheated on her, which suggests that part of this result (pro forma divorce) stemmed from her desire to go out and pursue a whole lotta alpha fucks, unmitigated by expectation of virtue.

@Nathan, thanks for the headsup. Every day is Lent for me at SSM btw.

Two points to make. First, yes it’s true women luv to “mother” strangers they are sexually attracted to, nut women *hate* to mother familiar men. Second “it’s not all about the sex.” Yes, it’s not. Since invariably frantic sex with hot strangers is literally unsatisfying to women (women climax more than five times as often when with a familiar man), there is another reason for slutting: it’s the validation.

@SteveH, supposedly, the breakup is not about her pursuing alphas.
http://www.usmagazine.com/celebrity-news/news/gwyneth-paltrow-chris-martin-clashed-over-parenting-diet-pre-split-201424
Supposedly the breakup is due to her increasing and increasing and increasing the dissing of him in public, and he just couldn’t take it anymore. It was like he was a teenager “married” to his really bossy mom. That being said, it may have been his SMV that allowed him to finally see that he didn’t have to take it anymore.

I have no idea why I’m in such a celebrity mood this week, as all I know of the entertainment industry I get on google news.
It seems Peaches Geldof was extremely discontent being a wife and mother, and couldn’t quite figure out why.
http://www.sheknows.com/entertainment/articles/1034541/peaches-geldof-left-alienated-and-abandoned-by-pals
She had derived for herself that the fact that she had partied so hard with so many alphas for so many years when so young (early teens, started), that her being jaded and burnt out with partying was a sign that she was ready to be a wife and mother.

@Rollo, I had an idea! It happens sometimes. It probably would be useful, maybe especially to women-herds, to include celebrity examples illustrating the life stage SMV timeline. The only reason for the celebrityness would be already-present familiarity with that person’s bio. I’m certain it would help speed understanding. About the only iffyness is how much push-back there would be from fans etc about some celebrity’s hitting the Wall or something.

The Geldof story fits particularly well into the life scheme chart, even the presence of two children couldn’t override her ‘party years’ yearning phase. She felt left out by her party peer group who wouldn’t entertain her changed life scenario and circumscribe their own script to fit her reality. Her depression and extreme dieting seems to be nothing more than a certain type of regret for being out of the loop. I have to admit the chart is way more elucidating than I originally thought, when I think of all the women I know they almost perfectly fit the charts… Read more »

@Rollo re: dumblittleblog link. Do women actually not know how much it hurts a Plan B man to realize the reason she’s settling for niceness from him is that the bad boys won’t play rough with her any more? Or is her making him realize it, part of her compliance testing, to see how much hurting him she can get away with?

@Softek re: vikings. It is difficult to run amok, a little. One can’t be partly a berserker any of the time, but you can be fully berserker merely some of the time.

@Rollo – It is tragic to hear about your greyhounds passing, especially around your birthday. I call my puppies ‘family members’ and know that greyhounds are a big part of your lives. Please remind us of the related charity you mentioned before.

@Cryo Perhaps I did misunderstand you…but your follow up makes me think otherwise: you have logically accepted the red pill, but you have not finished grieving the blue pill fantasies so you can emotionally embrace the joys of reality. What you are asking Rollo is not a question he can answer for you. The red pill is more descriptive than it is prescriptive: if you have a goal in mind, it can tell you how to achieve it, but it can’t tell you what that goal should be. You are asking “What kind of man should I be?” The only… Read more »

@ Rollo. Excellent post. I’m consistently impressed with the amount of material you’ve covered and how you get right to the point.

Reminds me of my mentor — when he started teaching me his trade, he told me right off the bat, “I’ve been doing this for over 45 years. I’m going to tell you what works, period. I’m not going to give you any bullshit.”

@Will, ” So for most men it comes to the question of–>how do you handle a young, high smv girl who is in her party years? And how do you optimize the chances of long term stability with this girl when you yourself might not even be in that phase of life?” Answer: only a young woman from a conservstive religious upbringing has the morality counterbalance to hypergamys demand of trading up promiscuity. There are not many of them. They attend religious colleges like concordia or martin luther college. There it’s no other answer that I’ve found. No one is… Read more »

@Nathan–this isn’t pinpointing it for me. the reason is because even with girls that were raised in a religious and conservative background you still see them taking advantage and caving in to hypergamy (which you claim they do less of). I would have to say your statement is pretty much incorrect b/c I actually know a lot of girls who were “raised religiously and conservatively” and were the biggest come out of the closet sluts of them all.

We have two elderly greyhounds. Their teeth are in terrible shape but, based on your experience, I think we’ll forgo the cleaning.

… Love the ‘preventative medicine’ series. I’m really looking forward to part IV, and better understanding my middle-aged wife.

@Mookie, your description of the alpha widow is a spot-on description of my marriage. For the man who takes the red pill in middle age, is there are any recourse to happiness? (My kids are young and I’m moving out of SMV peak range)

Wow, a few comments to a series vs 1,000 to a one-off. Utterly unable to control the narrative of tens of thousands of males simultaneously engaging their own minds and waking up to a whole bunch of shit. Who would have thunk it? Rollo, you are special, but you are not EXCLUSIVELY special. Embrace that, and watch your fan base exponentially grow.

Sorry to her about your dogs Rollo. Have four ourselves.

Question. With the changing layout of society, females are mostly now able to provision for themselves, so why do you think they are looking for a male that can provision for them?

Rollo, Condolences on the loss of your dogs. I have had a few, and they were all part of the family. Excellent article and series! My only suggestion would be to possibly include full-size charts or diagrams with less, but more focused, information, perhaps at the beginnings of sections, to help new readers better see the relationships between unfamiliar terms and concepts. The “Iron Rules of Tomassi” links on “The Best of Rational Male – Year One” go to httpS, but do not present trusted identification, thus triggering internet-security communications tampering and site impersonation warnings. . . One conclusion is… Read more »

I know it’s redundant by now, but I have to say it anyway. Excellent article.

The worst part about the red pill is that I’m only human and sometimes my thoughts/opinions bleed into conversations with people. I usually catch myself but it never ceases to be hilarious when you say something around another man and his logical brain kicks in. That’s when he’ll neither agree or disagree, he’ll just be quiet.

It can be quite shocking to some because of their preconceived notions of me. Cracks me up every time.

@Kate “@eon: The more money one makes, the higher percentage of child support one pays. Men won’t be in this position forever. Mark my words: in x years, the worm will turn, and it’ll be the women’s turn to pay.” Outside of an extremely small percentage of women, I completely disagree that this would ever occur to any significant degree. It goes against the very nature of women. Everything they do is to exploit the resourcefulness of men. They only earn a living because men facilitate the whole process. All the amenities they enjoy are due to the efforts of… Read more »

QUOTE: “When one considers that one must “game” a woman, even your wife, in order to keep her around, then it also means that you must always be operating at a “higher level” than her. It totally negates the whole notion of having a “soul-mate” and means that on many levels, a man will always be alone.” That is probably the most important lesson a man can ever learn. Intimacy with a woman is impossible if you have any interest in being her lover. If you are fine with being one of her grrrlfriends, and don’t mind the stupid messed… Read more »

jjf2 says ” The reason young women are so strongly into serial monogamy is because the way women love is by making men into babies” No, No, and No. Women DO NOT want to make love to babies or boys. Never have and never will. Nature built a very strong repulsion to incest in women. That’s why women lose attraction for their men in the first place – when she starts having to “mother” them. Women have no natural preference for serial monogamy any more than men do. The reason for serial monogamy is mainly logistics and some measure of… Read more »

I don’t think women’s solipsism is a problem. It’s just the way it is. It’s natural for women to be selfishly attached to men and not understand them or want to understand them, but to just have them playing the role that they want them to play — protector, provider, the rock. The one that creates the fantasy for them and takes them into their world. Men (these days, at least) fantasize about relational equity — a perfectly reciprocal romantic loving relationship. Realizing that this doesn’t exist feels very depressing and nihilistic. But think about this: Women want men to… Read more »

@xxxxx, you made my point, so you aren’t actually disagreeing with it. FYI. “Nature built a very strong repulsion to incest in women. That’s why women lose attraction for their men in the first place” which causes serial monogamy.

I suspect it was never there in the first place, it was just a mutually agreed upon illusion. The was never any love because it never existed in the first place.

“I suspect it was never there in the first place, it was just a mutually agreed upon illusion. The was never any love because it never existed in the first place.” I think that Badpainter is right. As I wrote, a while back, and on a different site: A woman is not capable of being in love, with a man, and definitely never in the way that a man understands being in love with a woman. For a few years after puberty, a young woman constructs her Ideal-Man Suit. Then, when she falls “in interest” with a man, he becomes… Read more »

Re dumblittleblog… where did he meet this woman? I mean, if she tried to play the ‘good girl’ and made him wait for it, and then pulled a bait and switch on him… then I can totally see where his complaints are coming from. But, if she put out for him within, say, three days of meeting him… well, what exactly did he think he was getting himself into? What kind of a woman did he think she was going to turn out to be? If you go out looking for a slut or a whore, then don’t cry when… Read more »

@Retrenched – I met her on FB and yeah she put out within about a half after I met her for the first time. And frankly it’s not that this shit surprises me, it’s just that the state of things is depressing. I feel bad for her more than myself, I’ll be fine, I’ll always be fine. I mean in her mind she might very well think that what she said was a compliment. It confuses me when sluts think they deserve LTR’s. It confuses me even more when I see men that I would consider alpha males(army snipers, wealthy… Read more »
