Category: Date Smarter, Not Harder
"Over the past 18 years, I’ve repeatedly stated my belief that men are simple creates that prefer to do whatever is easiest."
Only be reading this, any smart man or woman should read no more from this article, because here you call all men simple which is like synonym of stupid, and lazy which means you either fail to see the truth, or you are too proud woman to admit it. And i won't even explain why this statement contradicts with the entire human history, but i will tell you the correct word to name the thing that apparently has deceived you for the last 18 years of your life. It's called - practicality, racionality
Good grief, this article is insane! As a Christian man every single item on this list is a no-brainer for me! No sex before marriage = that makes condoms, children, and moving in together out of the question.
The only standards that matter for women are money and looks. Protestations to the contrary are a ruse designed to deflect beta men. Furthermore, women will constantly revalue their standards upwards whenever they meet a potential man. Basically again this means American men cannot date American women unless they are rich, hot or convicted felons (that is the bad boy factor). If you disagree, you can kiss my ass.
I agree with Raz that what you've described is common sense for women.
I've always been told that my standards are too high when I ask for a man who is intelligent, honest and hardworking. People are always telling me to drop my standards, and its becoming disheartening.
If I described all my own personal qualities and achievements, they would far outshine my basic standards for a man, yet why do people always insist we aim lower, because "Mr Perfect does not exist"?
Great article!! Though to me these points don't sound like high standards but simply good self esteem! I have let people walk all over me and do nearly all these things because I didn't think I deserved much... now I'm a little older and a little wiser, I don't tolerate any crap. I would far rather be single for a lifetime than go through any of that again...
And I disagree that women with low standards are making it harder for women with good stadards. Sure men will always use weaker women but a lot of men go crazy for women with good self esteem and who respect themselves. You attract bigger fish with better bait :)
I think that these standards are necessary, because I am in my early 20's and I am dating and I find that if you don't have high standards than the men you meet don't even come close. I have those standards because in my eyes I am worthy of meeting someone like that. It might take me a while to find them, but I will and I really think that the more patience you have the sooner it will happen. Patience is the key to finding someone you might spend the rest of your life with. Being single, I think it is work to find someone like that but I feel it is a must.
Great article. It is sad that what is considered to be 'high standards' with women really should be 'normal standards and common sense for women'. But as the article stated, the dating world is turned up on it's head these days. This article is on point. Water seeks it's own level and the level of least resistance. Women with low standards makes it harder for women who do have standards. Guys don't have to rise up to meet them when they can just go around the corner to sallysue who is ready to meet the guy on his level.....sigh. Guys have very little incentive to be better men and better mates/partners to women these days because there are far too many accommodating women out there meeting them on 'their low level'.
