Guys have terrible advice for women. I see it time and time again, and you're all terrible shit at this.
There's a reason. Guys rationalize bad decisions and past decisions as "preferences." I won't dig up the quote right now, but Rollo made a very good point to this theme: Guys will have a preference for whatever worked before. If nerdy chicks show interest in a guy, he will gain a preference for nerdy chicks.
This isn't because nerdy chicks are necessarily sexier or more feminine, but because guys come from an essentially needy position. A position of no abundance.
On TRP we focus on abundance mentality to try to subvert this natural disadvantage, but it's true. Guys will never, ever, have as many options as women.
So when I hear a guy tell a woman, "No, you keep doing what you're doing, I like a woman with a little spunk.."
This guy doesn't have a preference for "spunk." No, he's an idiot who is so thirsty he'll take any woman he can get, and he'll accept her self-proclaimed handicaps as features.
He'll think to himself, "gosh, she's bitchy, rude, and abrasive..... well, I like a strong independent woman."
And that's his rationalization. Because he's a thirsty fucking idiot.
But when they start preaching about their preferences as though it's going to be useful advice for women, then we've got a problem.
And we do have this problem here. Guys think they know what good advice for women is.
Women, if you take this advice- "i find book smarts to be very attractive" I promise you will waste a considerable amount of time and energy doing something that doesn't really boost your SMV. Oh sure, some guys might say they have the preference, but ultimately, book smarts aren't actually sufficient to create attraction, nor required for said attraction to exist. Guys will not assist you in actual SMV building. Because, guys want to fuck you anyway, and will basically accept you as you are. But that doesn't help your chances with higher quality guys.
If you're a dude, and you think you should be chiming in, read the fucking side bar. Then read it again. Then don't chime in. Because it's unlikely you've got much to contribute.
If you're a guy and you contribute and it's not gender neutral (that is, none of that "as a guy..." bullshit), then it's out of here, and you're out of here. No warnings.
