Men are the buyers, women are the products. It's that simple. All the make-up, short skirts and low cut tops are just packaging, a marketing ploy. When you go and speak to a woman, you are investing your currency - your time - to see what the product is like underneath the packaging, and whether you want to invest more in it. A man who wants any form of relationship with a woman purely based on looks, is like the kid that gets a train set for Christmas but only wants to play with the box.
If after investing some time in it, you find that the product is not to your taste then move on. If the product is not available to a certain demographic i.e. you, or is not for sale, then move on. You don't beat yourself up because the football you wanted was out of stock, you just go find another one elsewhere.
If a woman has set her price high, it's not up to you to try and gather all the loose change you have just to try and get her. Chances are, her perception of herself is way higher than anyone else's perception of her anyway.
One last point, waiting for a woman to approach you is like waiting for the DVD you want, to walk up to you and sit in your basket. It ain't gonna happen, It's up to you to pick it up.
