There is a common belief on this forum that any man who "provides" for a woman by spending money on her is a beta chump.zekko said:I agree dinner dates should be reserved for women who have earned it.
But I don't see why the term "provider" gets such a bad rep around here.
As far as I know, the ability to provide is one of the attributes women find attractive in men. What, do you think girls want homeless guys?
I know Tyler says that if a girl thinks you might be a provider, she may try to latch onto you long term and not have sex with you right away. Obviously this is bad if you are looking for a one night stand. But overall this represents her trying to be on her best behavior for you, putting her best self forward, so I don't see how it is that bad of a thing.
Now if the girl is just a golddigger, or if the guy has nothing else to offer (no masculine traits) obviously that it a different story.
That conclusion is flawed because as Zekko said, a man's ability to provide is attractive to women. Men who have resources, or have the skills to acquire them will always be at a significant advantage in the great poon hunt.
