Here is the latest article about so called progressive women and conservative fellas,
My friend Mark, 36, is a “catch” by many New York City standards. He’s good-looking, highly educated, and a talented photographer. He’s also progressive and participates in protests and gives to left-leaning causes. And Mark is looking for love. He wants to get married and have kids.
In a liberal city like New York, swimming with single women wishing they weren’t, one could assume Mark wouldn’t have a problem finding a mate. And while he dates and recently had a couple of short-lived relationships, Mark remains single. He’s trying to understand why.
Every few months there is an article somewhere about this topic. Apparently, people don’t read my responses, so I will try again.
I assume that photography is his profession. To be honest, it doesn’t pay much. As for the highly educated part, that might be less than impressive also. In New York, it takes money to live, especially with kids. Will he provide? The fact that he spends lots of time at protests shows that he is doing silly stuff, not improving himself or his career. Deep down, lots of women know that the causes that they espouse are stupid. They don’t want their man to be as silly.
“I’m really open-minded and cool about gender stuff on dates, but I always feel like I’m walking on eggshells,” Mark told me. “If I pay for dinner, it signals I don’t value my date as my equal so I’m super casual about it all. If she wants to pay or split it or whatever, that’s fine with me.”
Wishy-washy with no real principles. Will he be there for her in tough times?
The female desire to feel protected and looked after is built into our DNA, says evolutionary psychologist Geoffrey Miller, a professor at the University of New Mexico and author of several books including “The Mating Mind.”
“It’s a mismatch between what progressive women say they want and what they actually respond to,” Miller told me. “Women’s instinctive mate preferences have evolved for hundreds of thousands of years for guys who are competent, strong, good providers, good protectors and happy with a sexual division of labor,” he added. Women want “decisive men who are also compassionate and thoughtful.”
So this fella agrees with me. Yes, the women say they want this, but go for that. Might this be where some of their mental problems come from? I might suggest that this was an issue with my ex. She wanted a big fancy career along with lots of other Feminist endorsed stuff, but me to lead. I was blue-pill and confused. It didn’t end well.
So it really comes down to this. These women know that their beliefs are stupid, so they need somebody who is competent in reality to balance them out. Change my mind.
