Differences in courtship between the genders (15)


1 Name: Secret Admirer : 2006-01-15 06:26 ID:503ywjRb

Why is it that it is the men that must court the woman? There are less men, men are normally the ones that make the money?

Why do women fantasize about meeting a prince and having a fairytale wedding? Is this culturally universal? Societial influence in their upbringing?

I'm sure the reasons are more biological than anything, but I'm not really sure why it has worked out that way.

I think it is a societal construct with a biological background.

Courting isn't exactly free.

Why? Evolution probably. Women select desirable characteristics in a sexual partner and a provider/protector (not always the same person.) They weed out undesirable qualities to avoid creating and having to live with inferior offspring or an inferior home environment. Women are selective because women have more to lose if they make a bad selection.

And how, pray tell, do you tell the ones who just follow instinct from the ones who decide on the same choice after careful deliberation?

You don't.

Heres my question: why the fuck do stupid girls go after the jerks when they are young? The young, dangerous punks who really don't give a crap about anyone. And then end up regretting it and coming to the conclusion that they want a mature guy. My question is, surely there must be some women who realize this simple idiocy can't last? Is it to fullfill some stupid fantasy that all women have?

Confidence.

Women are whores. Just like men (who go for bimbos). You need to realize this but not speak it out loud.

Presumably, dangerous punk => tough guy => good protector. I suppose it's an evolutionary thing.

Do you really think EVERY woman in the entire world does that?

Sure you do, the same way you tell honest people apart from liars, hard workers from goof-offs, or cops from hookers (I've heard.) It doesn't actually take a lot to discover someone's motivations, you just have to ask the right questions.

But there are a lot of mature men out there who are even more confident than the punks 8 mentions. Is it because they don't feel the need to show off? It's weird, thats for sure...
