Facepalm.

There is no dualistic mating strategy.

Why? Because I have everything I desire from the same man. I have always chosen men this way, and I admittedly am blessed in having the ability to choose desirable men who choose me. I do not go seeking attention. To be frank it is nice that I do not garner the same attention as I did when I was younger. It is something independent of my looks however and will exist even as I age. You see, positivity and charm is ageless.

My BF mate guards out of his own insecurities. Period. His own deep seated fear that he isn’t good enough to keep a woman like me.

Otherwise he wouldn’t tell everyone that it took him 30 years to find me. Otherwise he would see me as replaceable. He doesn’t see me as replaceable. I am not.

And you can go on and on about me thinking I’m special and so forth. I am. There are women who are rare. Men want to find one. When they do they want to keep her. I am that girl and I make no apologies about it.

And men see, know and observe very quickly that although I am charming and have a universal allure? My charms are reserved for my man. Period.

Enjoy your weekend gents. I have a birthday boy to spoil rotten this weekend ;)

Cheers
How old is your boyfriend?

Women today are incredibly blind to their own lack of social propriety. If you call them out on repeatedly gazing at a particular man while you are both out together, they will be flabbergasted and vehemently deny, even though they are factually in the wrong and behaving rudely with their man, and insulting both him and their established relationship.
Sorry nuclear man, but I have to disagree with you here. They are not blind to their lack or property; they just don't care. Women who act in the manner described by the OP know very well that they are being disrespectful but they do it anyway because they believe their man will tolerate it. They would not even dream about acting this way around a high value man with a spine.

You cannot discredit a perspective or argument just because it came from a women. Discredit it based on it’s merit, not who it came from.
As much as I agree on this, I cannot agree that women are the right people to talk to about these kinds of issues. Their natural prerogative is to always adhere to their feminine brain, and as a result, they will still say all the things they are meant to say without even knowing. This is why I am a strong believer in keeping women out of administrative or political positions. At most, I would let the cream of the crop run female centric areas or units of women, but never have them take over important positions or make such decisions. We have had several women show up on this site, and they all displayed the same qualities that I come to expect. The #1 rule is that when it comes to male and female dynamics, take what any woman says with a grain of salt. I've yet to see this rule defeated in my daily life.

To OP:

I am in a very unique situation where I am the one who looks at nice looking girls. The girls I go out with have made an increased observation that girls are looking at me with her. I just assumed she was saying this out of insecurity, but she's also seeming to be mate guarding me. If you are in a situation where you feel like she is looking at others, then you are simply confirming how you see yourself. Get to the stage where you don't care who she looks at, then your problem is solved since it's entirely a personal issue.

In one breath you say not all women are on the hunt for something better,in the next you say you’d rather be alone than with some “subpar” guy.Hmmmm....
Also,ultimately looks trump attitude and personality when men are seeking sexual partners.Men would rather be with a 5 in the personality department if she’s a 10 in the looks department than a 10 in the personality department but a 4 in the looks department.
You must have skimmed but not read. What happens is that over time is that men adjust to a woman’s looks. They normalize to her looks. As that happens the other factors rise in weight or importance because these other factors have more to do with long term connection and compatability.

Men with a ton of experience with women understand this and after a while start screening (if they seek more than just sex) on these non looks based factors, especially when the man is someone for whom beautiful women are the norm. Men will sacrifice a little in the looks department for other traits that confer greater compatibility and pleasant nature to be around.

Nobody who can pull 10s in looks will drop to 4s. But they will drop to an 8 or 9 in looks provided the girl has a pleasing disposition.

I would rather be alone than with a dude who doesn’t appeal to me. I’ve already explained that. I am happy with my BF, so that’s not an issue.

My boyfriend is 45. And hot/sexy AF. And delighted to have me. He meets all my criteria. So no dual mating strategy here I assure you ;)

Men adjust to women’s looks?:lol: I don’t know where you got that idea,but no man with options would do that lol.No man.Long term connections with women aren’t things men necessarily go looking for.No man looks at a girl he’s attracted to and thinks,”Gee, I wonder where we’ll celebrate our 5 year anniversary?”He thinks more along the lines of,”Damn she has fat ass.”A man’s attraction,and later commitment to a woman is dictated first and foremost by how much he is physically attracted to her, and maybe not even then.Men aren’t thinking about things like “long term compatibility.”All that comes later,if he feels like keeping her around.Men with options will only start thinking that way much later on,having indulged their desires to the fullest.And while these men wouldn’t be caught dead with 4s,it is a reality that even these 4s can find somebody to **** them.The sexual marketplace is that way for women. I don’t think you understand what guys mean here when they refer to the dualistic sexual strategy of women,but you best believe it exists.It is derived from motivations of women to get into relationships with men,short or long term.

I assure you I understand exactly what is meant by dualistic mating strategy. At my age, having been married, having had 3 children, having been divorced, and having seen countless women bargain their looks transactionally in exchange for resources or perceived financially security I know a tremendous amount about this.

Socially I have a friend for example who is 55. She looks 35, much as I do. She married 30 years ago her college sweetheart. He is worth now over 100 million. She can get whatever cosmetic procedure she wants, they have whatever material things they desire, their two children are grown and attending expensive private universities, they support many charities etc. And they hate each other. They will never divorce. It would cost him too much money, and she would lose the lifestyle and prestige she basks in. So they both openly take lovers on the side and they stay together as partners. So believe me, I get it.

I just am not a woman who believes in transactional relationships. I require actual desire to be the glue that holds things together.

I have friends I know personally in their 30s to 60s who have banged hundreds (in a couple of cases over 1000) of women. They all get bored with meaningless sex in time. Men who have never experienced this cannot wrap their brains around this concept.

You are so enthralled with how hot a girl is that you cannot imagine anything else being more important. Men with much more life experience (and experience with women) will tell you the same thing…

“It doesn’t matter how beautiful she is. Someone somewhere is sick of her shjt”

Google that statement. You’ll find it educational.

In other words looks,while important are not the most important thing to high value men with options. I should know. Desirable men are the only ones I go out with.

Here is why this is true. Beautiful women are a dime a dozen. They are everywhere. Now. You may or may not be able to date them, but they are everywhere.

High value men always can get beautiful women. That is a requirement. Baseline. The ugly need not apply. Understand?

But finding a beautiful woman who is pleasant, warm, giving, fun, sweet, kind, feminine and engaging? Very small subset of hot women also have those attributes. High value men select from this subset. Beauty is a given. It only gets you in the door. The other qualities matter much more.

She's right. I work in the media,...the TV industry. We even had Matt Damon walking the halls once when one of his movies was filmed here. We don't put the Muts in front of the camera. I've been here for 22 years. My younger self had to adjust to it. Now when I see a chick walking the hall that other guys would drool all over themselves with,...I just see them as normal,...it's what they are just supposed to look like. Heck, I may have watched a movie on their couch one or twice at some house party with a bunch of them. I still have a Santa Clause hat in my closet that I somehow came home with years ago from one them. They stop being a big deal,...I know too much about them,...they just become humans.

You can't get rid or it. It is biologically ingrained. What is happening is that your BF just satisfies both sides of it at the same time. He is the correct balance of the two.
I can agree in that respect since you subscribe to this view.

I will say however that I do not need him to take care of me financially. I never chose men along those lines all my life. I out earn him as it is. I also take care of my children’s costs and offer some financial assistance to my ex husband per our agreement. So I do not have the dual need you guys espousing this dualistic mating strategy seem to believe so strongly in. It is not biology. This is a belief you and others hold. I am self sufficient from a resource perspective. I chose based on desire and leadership as I described earlier in this thread.

Among other things I hold a degree in biology. This is not biology. Sociology Ok. But not biology. The sexual desire/leadership thing is more biologically based. Your beliefs reflect social constructs arising from your belief system. Do not conflate the two. They are not the same thing.

It ain't all about money. The dualistic mating stratagy has been perverted in most of what you see on the internet. People, particularly younger people, can't think past their own short view of history. If you can think back to the ancient past before there was a such thing as money it makes more sense. The two sides of the nature are the genetic provisioning that make good babies (the "hawt guy"),...and the provisioning & protection side. Finding all aspects in the same guy used to be a "given" and not even questioned. But since the 1970's, 1980's, and beyond it gets more and more difficult to find a guy who is the whole package.

Biology, Psychology, Praxeology, Sociology. Blend it however you want. It is the salad that makes up the whole person. The boundaries between them aren't as clean as people might want them to be. Just a simple head injury or birth defect (Biology) can change how we think (Psychology) and that can change how we behave (Praxeology) and that in varying degrees can effect the larger scope of people around us (Sociological).

Yes.I think it angers most guys because they can’t match up.So they disqualify them.
There is such a thing as white knighting, I'm sure we've all seen an example or two of that.
But on the opposite end of the spectrum, there's that recent news story of the women who was raped on the train, and all the passengers just sat there and did nothing. That's not exactly behavior to be proud of either. I know there are a lot of would be PUAs who would think that anyone who jumped in to help would be a white knight, chump, sucker, or whatever other words they might want to use.

I did say that a high value man would only think a certain type of way having had his way for a good while did I not?I am 23,and I have always imagined that at some point I’d look for more than just looks in a woman.Right now though?Girls my age are in their prime.Commitment ranges from difficult to impossible.This reminds of the last girl I was with before the red pill.Very feminine.Very submissive.Very desirable.Very fun to be with.She was always down for whatever.But I hurt her,the relationship ended, and I really believed I lost a great girl. I did lose a great girl.But so was the girl before her.And the one after. Therein lies the axe a lot of guys have to grind with girls,most of them are as phoney as a three dollar bill.High value men will have their fill,because they’re rare,because there are a lot more physically attractive women (physical attractiveness being the issue of note)than there are men who are charismatic,confident,financially well off and generally have their **** together.That subset you speak of?They are women who saw it prudent to accede to the high value man’s terms.I am not rambling for the sake of,I have seen it.Any woman can be warm,giving,sweet and fun if the man is high value enough.

More afraid of getting stabbed or shot than anything else.

Exactly.Now being a provider and a protector is beta.I’m sure in some scenarios it is,but those two things are cornerstones of what makes a man a man.

I was thinking they were afraid of getting sued, or arrested. Common sense is completely upside down these days, and in many places they will side with the criminals if they can. The rapist guy gets off, while you get arrested for assault and get stuck with his medical bills.

Not at all. Because of the way I select desire does not wane. Rather it grows. In my marriage relationship for example desire was always strong. Sex very nearly on the daily for 20 years. Marriage fell apart for other reasons not deriving from the desire part.

I know many married couples where desire is still present and key in the relationship. If you have not experienced a relationship where desire strengthens then you probably picked the wrong person.

Current relationship is deepening & strengthening in the desire department. No reason to think it will not continue to do so.

I’ve never really understood why men would put up with sexless or desire free relationships. The whole concept of that is foreign to me.

There is a reason my first criteria involves desire. It is the glue; the magic that holds everything else together long term.

Why be vague with this aspect? You're certainly open about everything else... If not desire, what went wrong in your marriage?

Yeah no shjt. You're a female. It's not an accomplishment for women to have sex. Women don't have to worry about game, and tactics, and fulfilling a 20 point attraction list...Unlike men. Men would rather put up with the prospect of scraps than worry about becoming incel. Something women don't have to deal with.

My ex husband completely abdicated the man’s role in the marriage after his partner screwed him over on the nightclub. He never recovered and became lazy and depressed over time. He abdicated leadership and didn’t get up and get on with life. There are many places my full story exists here at SS. It’s in my unicorn thread from a few years ago if you need details. Eventually my respect for him as a man eroded because he wallowed for many years. He was a stay at home father 10 of those years. He had my support and every opportunity to get up. He didn’t. As time passed I didn’t want my children to think the example of a man their father was demonstrating was normal. I ended up the enabler of his laziness within the marriage. So I left the marriage. I told him 5 years before I left that his trajectory would have to change or a divorce was inevitable. I left him 5 years later. Incidentally I remained faithful throughout. It was not until a year post divorce that I accepted a date. And the guy who asked me out? We dated for 18 months.

As far as men accepting scraps? Each of the highly desirable men I know who were in sexless unions KNEW they were picking the wrong woman at the time. They are all charming, handsome & very successful.

All are happily divorced now by the way, and two had hellacious divorces.

One is a film editor in Hollywood, one a lawyer & IT consultant, another is a property developer. They each had a deep sense of commitment to marriage as an institution. They all were historically desirable men with no issue attracting women. They all remain highly sought after and women swoon over them. So it’s not as though they were ugly in cel types. Not at all. They did each marry a high maintenance bjtch though. Then they had children with said bjtch. They each realize now they chose a woman for the wrong reasons but young men do this often.

I hope my son does not do the same. At 19 he thus far appears to have a good head on his shoulders.

Thank you for sharing that @Bee. Your openness is refreshing.

Question: You posted earlier your marriage did not end due to lack of desire.

So to clarify, you lost respect for him but still felt desire for him?

I find that unusual as when my respect dies, so does my desire.

Can you clarify further on that?
