This the the first in a series of State Of The Unions (SOTU) posts related to the antecedents of marriage. Today, we consider the men who create tingles, the Tinglators.
Modern semi-feral woman when it comes to the opposite sex are often driven most by tingles. Tingles come from many sources, and are essentially caused by a weighted sum of the following,
I. Handsome Appearance
IV. Financial/Institutional Power
V. Apparent threat to do violence
VII. The way he beats down (physically/metaphorically/verbally) other men/women
VIII. The ability to hold a strong frame
IV. Physical risk taking
A wide range of men can create tingles, from drug dealer thugs to captains of industry. In present times, young women don’t listen to the advice of their elders and as such, are easily fooled by men who generated tingles, but are really not good long term bets (financially and otherwise). Examples include thugs, drug dealers, petty criminals, players, etc. It is really not so difficult to become one these types of men.
Hypergamy is added to the mix. In today’s semi-feral world, this means that women really, really want badly the men who make them tingle. This impacts the market greatly. The men who have what it takes to make women tingle realize their position and can readily exploit it. Since most women eventually want to get married (even if they deny it), they chase incessantly the men who generate tingles. These men have no compelling reason to get married if they view women’s prime utility as sex.
Short answer — There are many consumers who are in pursuit of a limit supply of product. However, the product is not what they believe that it is, with them foolishly trying to forever close the deal. Perhaps a few close the deal, sometimes it works out in the long run, but often it does not. For their own benefit, women should be better educated consumers.
