A big reason why women seek men is simply because they don't like being alone, and get lonely.
This is obviously ingrained in them biologically because a million years ago they frankly couldn't survive without a man's support, and would be more inclined to getting raped. Men get lonely for a similar reason of garnering the strength of a tribe behind them, but to a lesser degree because they are a bit more self sufficient.
When you are in a relationship typically this comes into powerful view. There are many moments you just want to be left alone.
Or should I say, there SHOULD BE many moments you just want to be left alone. This creates the push/pull mechanism.
See, the push/pull mechanism works because you are tangling the bait of easing loneliness to a girl, and therefore you must let her feel lonely. If you are too forward with your affection, then she will never feel that need to ease her loneliness, and therefore take you for granted. The purpose of man is to dangle this shit on them, they obviously like it too because they enjoy the feeling of being ATTRACTED to something.
Anyway, the bottom line is all you pathetic dweebs out there "yearning" for friendship or romance are doing it all wrong. A man of resource and strength has much greater tolerance for loneliness. This is strength, because now you gain the power to ease other people's loneliness, without needing their power to ease yours.
