Last year at this time, I was in Hawaii. One of the days was spent in downtown Honolulu. There was much money on display there. And there were an enormous number of pretty women. From eyewitness accounts, New York City is the same way. What is going on here? Why are there so many young pretty women in these places? These are after all very high rent districts, and most assuredly most of these women are not wealthy.
As you might have guessed, hypergamy is a driving factor. Probably these women are looking to leverage their youth and beauty as much as they can. So like Willie Sutton, they go to where the money is. Perhaps they really do not consciously make this decision; maybe stuff comes bubbling up that pushes them in this direction. But any way that you look at it, they come to where the money (and/or power) is.
How successful are they? It depends on what their goals are. For many, marriage is the goal. How many rich/powerful men are there? Probably not so many; at least in comparison to number of women in the vicinity. Furthermore, these types of men (especially the self made types) are often rather intelligent, and probably are careful about marriage and its risks (except when they are not). So for many women, lots of pump’n’dumps are on the horizon. Maybe they can become part of a soft harem. And most assuredly, they will become alpha widows.
Will there be a happy ending for her? Probably not.
