Mikey Suchomel I'm wondering what biological aspects you are referring to. Pheromone reactions happen during ovulation, but studies on what people want in a mate, at all times of the month, show that women are more likely to want things like "ambitious," "successful," and "has a plan," while men are more likely to want "healthy," "fit," and even "sexy." That's not to say there isn't a lot of overlap, but in general, these hold true.
As for my personality, no, it wasn't mine, it was hers. Honestly, I've only tested "cheap date" twice, though, so maybe it does work well for a lot of people.
Personally, I think it would be nice to be part of a "progressive" relationship of being a stay-at-home dad for an ambitious wife, but I don't see that happening. The trick with such a woman, I think, would be totally different than with most. One would probably want to invite her over, so she would see how nice and clean one's house is, then make dinner for her so she knows how great one is at cooking. If that doesn't get her, figure out a way to show her that one is very great with kids, and I can't see her having any more hang-ups.
Oh man, that'd be so nice. I would become the ironing master to please a wife who pays my bills.
Ben Miller I was talking about the being able to provide for a family part. I read something recently about how women are more likely to be attracted to a man that shows characteristics of economic stability more so when ovulating. Of course it's still in effect naturally, because everyone would prefer to be with someone stable than someone who needs help . . . but it's less of a factor on an everyday basis.
And being a stay at home dad just doesn't seem like something you can really choose, haha.
Joram Tapiero, No, this is suggesting that you don't get a woman to do all your housework... It says buy not hire, and I'm pretty sure the slave trade was abolished a couple of years ago.
Hire all the bitches you want brah.
What do they think it means to take a girl on a date.. Or hey, Buy them stuff on Valentine's Day.. And if we don't buy them things we get in trouble... So yes, we do buy women... Unless you're famous... The bitches love famous dudes... Mostly because they have money... To buy them stuff...
Poor reasoning. If it doesn't work for you, it doesn't work for me? and there are other reasons your date could fail. Like, you obviously don't want to go to a restaurant and only order water to drink, no food. And you don't want to sit there and tell her "don't get that, it costs money!". I've gone on plenty of cheap as free dates - walk in park, just a cup of coffee (money, not much), play a game at the coffeeshop, whatever - and have had plenty of second dates.
And that doesn't make sense psychologically. Women want providers who can take care of them while pregnant, giving birth, and taking care of the kids. This is evolutionary, and there is overwhelming evidence behind it.
So maybe you got a second date, but if you never show her you're willing to shell out, it won't last.
Ben Miller That's a pretty narrow point of view. I hope you don't really believe that, that women actually want to just pump out babies and get taken care of. Because that might be your problem.
I do well for myself and in long term relationships
Andrew Roth You're putting words in my mouth. I don't believe women "want to just" do anything. I'm saying there is strong biological programming that says women need a provider and men need a reproductively healthy mate. In a society where these things are no longer necessary, other factors play in, but if you try to go against the biology, you're gonna encounter problems. My guess is, your relationships are successful because they trust that you would provide for them, if necessary, or you're attracted to women with high need for achievement (which I doubt, as such women often don't attach themselves to men).
