I always tell dudes who just got out of bad relationships, or are in dry spells to focus on chicks with self esteem issues. They can usually be found in bookstores in the "self help" or "new age" sections looking for "answers" to whatever "issues" they are facing. They are prime targets for dating. An added bonus is that crazy women are almost always great in bed.
You missed one Dewdrop. Do you tell them to go for the fatties Lao?

This is why you're one of the Axis of Evil charter members, Lao. Well done.

Yeah, but you sure as hell don't want them to know where you live, unless you just like walking out of your apartment and finding your car keyed.

Most of what they says to a single woman is motivated by their sex drive, period. But my point, lucario, was that this idea that these women have to beg people to tell them constantly over and over again that they are 'worthy' and 'beautiful' IMO is false. I think the people that say this, do it to boost their own self importance in those people's lives and in general.

It pretty much is. At the end of the day, guys date girls who say the magic word "Yes". I mean let's face it, girls that are full of confience think they're pretty awesome and generally say No. Slightly insecure girls say Yes more often. I don't even mean this in a sexual way, it's just that they're easier to actually meet, date, and move forward with than some girl who thinks she's the greatest thing alive cause her parents and friends told her that she's this special little snowflake.

In a bar/club scenario, most guys, when confronted with two girls, would hit on the less hot one (assuming she was still decent) because that's generally the friendlier, more outgoing one, and the one that's most likely to say yes to conversation and more.

Women don't date men who have low self-esteem or aren't fully confident in themselves. It wouldn't even be up for debate.
Come on... do you really believe this? There are hundreds of millions of men in the world who have low self-esteem. Are all these men living alone, never having had a date? Of course not. Most of them date and get married. They aren't all living in some small box, never going outside, celibate and lonely.

And how many men do you know who are "fully confident in themselves?" Very few are. Just peruse this Forum!

Yeah. But the ones who don't have it are starting silly-ass posts such as "I've been FriendZoned Again!" or "Should I Have Kissed Her By The Tenth Date?" or "Why Can't I Get A Date On Saturday Night?"

what's ironic is that says a lot about you, that you feel you're not good enough to get the girl who feels worthwhile about herself so have to resort to going after a girl b/c she's not the best catch or whatever. So then as Lao said, it's easier to dump her when you're finished....

And they hit on the less hot one b/c they think she is easier to get in bed -- not b/c they think she is full of conversation and an overall decent human being. Be for real here.

Assuming this is true, and it is, at least partially - what is wrong with that? Men and women have sex drives, and the sex drives are what motivate them, at least on the most basic, animal level, to seek relationships with each other. Again, what is so bad about that?

What's false about it? I know lots of women who are like this. Or, as I've said, I have, on a limited basis, complimented women, and they discount it because they don't believe it's true (or they don't think much of me or my opinion).

I find that hard to believe........
