There’s a difference between perception and reality. Women want to describe their behavior a certain way, but the actual behavior is different from that. Then there’s excuses and manipulation to make up that difference between the two. Just observe. The truth is hypergamy, simple.
Remember girls (and guys), you’re a product of evolution and life. The objective function of your entire ancestry has been to optimize sexual reproduction and survival of offspring. This includes everything from your brain to hormones to emotions and thoughts.
To deny this is to deny your psyche and the ingrained instincts, predispositions, desires and wants within yourself, and for what? For the sake of an ideology that promises SJW utopia if you believe in feel-good myths? You will not be happy if you deny the truth within - you might explain away your actions and believe in a unicorn world full of fairies and rainbows but you’ll be miserable at 35 when your sexual-market-value starts dropping. Now, every person is slightly different and may have different preferences, but exceptions don’t deny the main trend.
You all know what I mean, and it manifests as deep insecurities in the kind of responses you throw out at it. The first step toward progress is to accept the truth.
In general men are biased towards action, and social dominance. They struggle to win at that through strength, power, money, risk and prestige. Women maximize their sexual market value at age 25 after which they start to decline. There’s a reason for the reductionist saying: “women don’t care about guys’ struggles, they hang out at the finish line and f🙂k the winner.” That’s a little simplistic but a good start to understanding hypergamy.
Mr glass dropping hydrogen grade truth bombs. Also - juggernaut law - even post prime females can still lock down (sub prime) beta buxxers in this hypergamous polygynous environment. It is impossible for a female incel to exist.
Use logic and don’t be dumb. 4 cases: 1. intelligent and confident, 2. Intelligent and not very confident, 3. Not very intelligent, but confident, 4. Not intelligent and not confident either
What’s your ranking of 1-4? It’s obvious #4 doesn’t cut it. Do you mean to say only #1 qualifies for the bar? On average, for women? Not any of #2 or #3? Think and answer what’s being asked. Not obvious platitudes, eh?
It’s because the lens exposes chin-ks in the ideological drivel that hides the truth ;)
It’s a very simple, logical, coherent question. When you rank things pair wise, you truly discover the value of every component w.r.t every other. It’s not subjective mumbo jumbo.
You yourself said: “I ranked between lack of confidence and lack of intelligence. The answer is that neither reach the minimum bar. It's about reaching minimum thresholds.”
Ok, construct an example where two guys reach the minimum threshold for intelligence and confidence. One is much more confident than intelligent, and the other vice versa. In this construction, they’re both equal in every other way. Remember they both cross the minimum thresholds. On average, who would women prefer more? It’s a simple data question, not a bogus ideological stand.
Treat people like people, build your relationships based on mutual respect, bring joy to the lives of others, and don't spend any more time in this cesspit.
And for you in particular, "impressive when he talks" sounds like you talk over people a lot, probably at great length. Don't do that. Pay attention to how much of the conversation you are taking up, and try not to take more than your equal share. When you aren't talking, listen, and not just for your next opportunity to speak. People will appreciate that.
Absolutely false. IQ has a negative correlation to reproductive success. Big brain = useless. Putting that you are a mensa member in your tinder bio gives +0 matches. Also, lol at being confident yet humble. That's translation for : have good genes, good body, good face.
Some of the smartest people on the world are on the autism spectrum, which has extremely high rates of virginity along with unemployment.
