Your prediction is right on the money! I've been too busy today to notice this crapola! Some evidently need to be told this line is subject to VERY serious sifting, just in case they're still unaware of Sierra's approach to things. By the time I'm done sifting, nothing's likely to remain in the sifter!

Which is why I'm a bystander!

And I won't stand in line for a woman. I don't have the patience for that.

It's really that simple Braunwyn, men are looking for sex (along with companionship) and women are looking for (in this time period) a man with financial security. FEW men and women are truly looking for something deeper out of each other; putting aside children of course.

And yes, a mans social status and worth (in the West) is equal to how much money he can make per year. It's just the sad reality of the hyper competitive Western culture; garbage men, janitors, male teachers, unemployed men, ect, ect, are considered to have little value or none at all.

It's so bad now that in certain female circles guys who make 100k a year are considered to have little value simply because they can't afford a private jet, a 10,000sf home, or a 400k luxury car.

Because that's all they can get. I have seen it with my own eyes. Poor, low class, slightly overweight women who married the guy who made 30k a year. For these women, they would have permmantly been in poverty if it were not for the men they married who helped them get out.

Nope, I respectfully disagree. Women ARE looking for meal tickets which is why the majority of modern women attach themselves to men with upward mobility. And to be fair, men are looking for the hottest woman they can buy, I mean, "attract".

So why is it when a low status male professes his love to a woman (and she knows his job) she declines his advancements? The truth is love is free, and most men can offer it to women in abundance, the problem is, most women don't want it unless money and or fame comes along with it.

No, they don't think of themselves as prostitutes, however, they ARE prostituting themselves to get what they want out of life. Otherwise they would pay for half the date themselves.

I'm not sure I understand. Some women hustle many men at the same time, and as a result, can live quite comfortable doing it.

If the OP is honest about his intentions with women & doesn't go around misleading them & breaking hearts, then I don't see the problem. He may only have a problem finding someone who wants the same, provided he has nothing else to offer in a shallow exchange.

I don't quite grasp why he wants a relationship if he only wants sex though. Relationships involve a lot of effort, and it's not necessarily a drudgery, but if you just wanted sex, then it doesn't seem worth the emotional energy.

Statements like this make me feel sad & alone in the world.

/dramatic emotional statement
