Tarn always asserted that lots of teen girls possessed self-esteem problems. I normally asserted that I could hardly see why. Perhaps from a chick perspective it can happen, but from a guy’s it all seems rather odd.
First of all, they are all pumped up from the outside with self-esteem. Secondly, they normally get better grades than the boys (the curriculum is slanted toward their style). Thirdly, everybody likes young girls (not just young boys). Fourth, the boys (young and older) are super interested in them, even if their appearance isn’t up to snuff by the standards of yesteryear.
So I was considering all of this, and came up with a possibility: hypergamy. It is, after all, unleashed. There is no longer any restraint. Perhaps the typical girl shoots for what she considers the top guy, and if she fails, then she is worth nothing in her mind. Naturally enough, there are many other suitable fellas around, but they are invisible. So, top guy or I am a failure it is.
Let me state that I really don’t have much sympathy for such a perspective. A society interested in self-perpetuating would not either.
Exit question: Is it unleashed hypergamy, or something else?
