LOVE IS CHANGING, ALMOST AS FAST AS TECHNOLOGYFebruary 16th, 2011 |
We all know technology is changing faster than we can say it. And relationships aren’t far behind. It’s tough being a guy today because a woman demands more than ever. She wants a man who can teach her things to increase her knowledge and make her life more fulfilling. She wants a man who will and help her grow, personally or professionally. She wants a supportive man who will help her feel good about herself. Additionally she wants someone she can talk to, have fun with, and be there for her no matter what happens.
At first bounce this sounds good, doesn’t it? But these qualifications are a lot harder than making money. And, although we rightfully applaud self growth, this new woman’s want list could be considered selfish, too “me oriented.” Well, evolutionary psychology marches.
Gentlemen, you’re caught in a transition phase. In your lifetime, in addition to the above, women will still consider your net worth and earning potential. Even though, in 2011 single women earn more than single men, a lot of them still let you pick up the tab on all dates. It doesn’t seem fair, does it?
But before I get too hard on my sometimes not so gentle sex, is it fair that you judge a woman primarily for her looks? That having sex with her is your initial goal. That an especially gorgeous woman is a status symbol?
BUT IT’S ALL OK. Basic needs won’t change — even when the deeper love sets in. Be aware, though, the road will probably get rocky, especially around the third year. But those who are smart enough to weather the inevitable, often terrible, are the truly wise ones.
