Exactly bro. This is what I also suspect. She was ruthlessly played by "chads" and "Tyrones" in the past. This type of ego protection is more common than we think.It could also be a symptom of Female Abundance and extreme heightened Ego - which is propped up by her hordes of bluepill simps. She uses lesser men for the Ego boost, because higher value men challenge her and represent an Ego threat. Abundance has made her lazy and not motivated to please men. Higher value men are more challenging and more likely to call out her bullsh!t. She has likely been ruthlessly dumped by Chads in the past and she doesn't like how that feels. Through her abundance (with bluepill simps), she has conditioned herself for easy wins and validation. She knows deep down that a higher value man ultimately won't value her as a Star. It's an Ego protection move on her part. She sees the handsome guy as already getting female attention and this triggers competition anxiety, which she hamsters away and pretends she's not interested so she can continue to live-out her deluded Star fantasy.
