I'm not sure why that post is construed as grumpy. You're telling people to get educated while you have yet to obtain an education yourself. I'm just calling it out. Although, psycho-babble that surfaces from goofy gen-ed classes in jr college is grating in itself.

No, you won't let us believe whatever we want. You'll continue to throw self-help books at us until we're knocked senseless. Can you not see how silly you look? Do I need to go and compile a list of every single book you have mentioned?

Experience the real world, Chris. And don't do it through others, either. I would be willing to bet my life savings that all the authors you've mentioned have actual LIFE EXPERIENCE.

I will however suggest you read The Emperor's New Clothes, by Hans Christian Andersen.

O.M.G. Wow - I came late for the party and have no idea where to start.

It's been kinda like the CD Dysfunctional Male Parade. Tried to spread some much deserved reps but was rejected at every mouse click.

How so? I think confidence is part of good mental health. Well, as I see it, mental health is about well-being, and good emotional management. Self-esteem is part of that.

The low self esteem comes from overrating their ability to snag a man who is several rungs up the ladder from them. Reality can be so depressing!

All women base their entire self-worth on their ability to attract a suitable mate.

Ok, so maybe sarcasm is uncalled for, but I strongly doubt your statement. A woman with good confidence can take a hit (ie rejection) and brush it off. A woman with already-low self confidence will internalize the rejection, blaming herself and continuing to spiral downwards. But "overrating their ability" is hardly the origin.
