Women only like "bad boys" until they get old enough to realize that they need someone who will put up with their shiat once their looks go. Same thing with men - at some point they get old enough to realize the hot vapid twunt they are banging isn't going to stick around once the prostate swells.

A lot of the generalizations about how women are attracted to bad boys, etc., seem more applicable to American women. I've lived in Japan and Europe, and the women there are intelligent, mature, confident, well-read, and are much more likely to prefer a guy with whom they can have an intelligent conversation, as opposed to some badboy asshole.

When I tell a European girl I have a PhD, she seems genuinely interested and treats me like an intellectual equal, whereas American girls giggle and say something like "oh my god, that must've been, like, so hard! u must b so smrt!", then proceed to whip out their iPhone and check their texts.

Yes, I know not ALL American girls are like that, I'm just sayin' there's seems to be some discernible difference, for some reason.

Ah, but according to nice guy theory, those embittered middle-aged broads who finally realize what they had and pissed away has himself become one of the "Assholes", and is now rich and successful and has women hanging off of him.

The nice guy theory is absolute bullshiat. If women don't like you and you think it's because you're a "nice guy" - it's because you're a wishy-washy, pussy-on-a-pedestal, ego-maniacal jackass who thinks you "deserve" a woman just for being you. It's a psychosis. Women don't want to be with slimy-handed, cheese puff eating fat geeks who worship them no matter what. Any interaction a "nice guy" has with a woman is done out of pure pity on her part, and no one wants to date someone out of pity.

The "bad boy/girl" theory holds true, if only because everyone wants a great fark when they're young. As you get older, other concerns come into play. However, none of those concerns revolve around an asshole who lacks self-confidence to such a degree that he slavishly devotes himself to a woman he isn't dating. It's sad and selfish, not noble, but the "nice guy" brigade would have you think they're an army of men who are willing to fulfill every woman's need. That's bullshiat. They are an army of men who resolutely refuse to better themselves and simultaneously refuse to learn anything about women, then biatch about women when they don't respond.

My experience with Europeans is that they won't date doglover. Those prudes don't even come visit me over here. Always Europing it up in Europe.

East asians tend to want a husband who can support them. If they can stay at home and have the baby and be paid for, that's all that matters. Heck, Japan's entire red light industry revolves around the fact that both husband and wife are married for the convenience and don't really like one another but don't want to get divorced.

If only prostitution were legal, men would never again have to worry about whether a woman he was having sex with was only with him for money.

He would know for certain she was only with him for money, and he would be happy and content.

When the ideal man needs to escape the world, he hits the open road. He checks his direction, a man needs direction. Out there he can gain distance from the troubles of life. He can think, clearly.

So the "ideal man" is one constantly running from obligations. No, I would say the ideal man exists. Many times over.

I always laugh at these articles, they're at least good for some guffaws at the end of a long day.

But, I do have a question, I've seen a lot of writers that seem to assume most women go for Ryan Gosling...really? Can my fellow farkettes weigh in on this? I realize that my tastes are...strange...and I might not be a good part of the sample, so, I'd actually like a consensus from the other ladies. Or is this just a guy's assumption based on the fact that Gosling takes all these roles in "chick flicks"?

I would venture that the secondary considerations far outweigh the so called primary considerations. This is not a bad thing, any more than it's bad to say that men prefer youth and beauty over other factors.

Wearing a suit and having money is as basic advice as telling a woman to wear a little makeup and don't wear sweatpants in public. This is not to say that without those characteristics you can't find a partner for the evening, just that it becomes far easier if you do.

It's not a nice guy/douchebag thing. A nice guy with money and good clothes will do much better than a douche with money and clothes. It's just that a douche with money and clothes will do much better than a nice guy without money, and wearing a ratty t-shirt.

"A wealthy young man's parents told him he must be married by his 25th birthday, in order to fulfill the terms of their joint will and get the money. This was a bit of a dilemma to him because he was dating three lovely young ladies and couldn't decide.

As he had only one month, he came up with a plan. He gave each woman $5,000 and told her she had a month to spend it. And, she could spend it any way she wanted.

After the month he met with each.

The first one said, "Well you know I love to shop, so I spent all of it on clothes!" "Fair enough," he replied, and took note of her decision.

The second young woman said, "I think it's better to give than receive, so I gave all of my money to the United Way!" "Okay," said the young squire (noting to himself that she must work for Digital).

Number three said, "You know I have a mind for saving, so I invested it in 9 3/4% zero coupon treasury bonds!" "Interesting," replied the gentleman, taking note of her keen financial acumen.

So, which one did he choose?

The one with big boobs, of course!"

Fano: You were talking to Christmas Cake girls in Japan. They feel grateful any man is speaking to them in a moderately interested way.


Heh, I was there for a couple years but I didn't really date any Japanese girls. The one or two "hookups" I had after a nightclub were with younger girls (undergrad age), but I'm not really counting those because not much conversation was had on those occasions.

A few Christmas cakers tried to take me out on occasion, but like I said I wasn't really there to date. As a foreigner who couldn't care less about the Christmas calendar, I'll say in their defense that it's refreshing to meet Japanese girls that have a little backbone and social skills. The younger girls in Japan are super shy, especially about gaijins, making advances toward guys is not really part of their culture. If you hate how girls here never make a move on the guy, then be prepared for disappointment because it never happens over there. At least, not before Christmas ;)
