ciberido: Magnanimous_J: eKonk: This. Women wouldn't even pretend to be interested in me if they didn't think I was married. Not sure I understand why, but that's just the way it is.

Part of it's ego. Most women wouldn't have a very hard time seducing a man if he was single, but if he's married and she can still get him then it's a conquest.

The other part is evolution, albeit lazy evolution. A married man has obviously demonstrated some value to a woman at some point, so another woman doesn't have to do as much leg work to figure out if he is a decent protector and provider.

Anyway, the point of that is if you want to know why people do things, ask yourself why apes would do it and you usually have your answer.

Clever guys will even talk platonic female friends into accompanying them to bars in order to give the impression that they're there with their girlfriends. Hmmm, that sounds like the plot of an 80's movie.

/Just realized I used "there", "their", and "they're" in the same sentence

And correctly, too. Rare these days.

Son of Thunder: theflatline: Well i have been married two months, and I can tell you this, the old rumors are true.

You never have so much tail thrown at you then when you wear a wedding right on. It is crazy.

Somehow it's more than that. It's like women have some kind of radar. As soon as I got engaged (so no ring on my finger yet), random women started hitting on me. Women never hit in me (on accounta I'm ugly). But as soon as I slipped that ring on my girlfriend's finger, it was like the words "flirt with this man" were tattooed on my forehead. I thought I had entered Bizaaro world.

No, it's because you're "harmless". They don't have to have their "not interested" shields up. They can talk freely to you.

I went to a fitness retreat last September, and there were 120 fitness instructors there. 6 of us were men. There was a dance, and I was dancing most of the night. At the end, one woman was crying because one of the other married men was trying to kiss her.

So it's not really that they're trying to find someone else's mate in their bed. They're just relaxed. That's all there is to it.
