I learned enough about women in that time to service me for the rest of my life (I started learning these thing when I was about 12). For good and bad.
One of the things I noticed, as Carl Jung commented, that women always think they’re right. Not the best women in the house but the worst ones.
The worst ones also blamed all their problems on men (they didn’t even know they were doing it but it was obvious from they said and what they did). In some ways they were closer to children than adults.
The worst ones could always dish it out but couldn’t take it. They thought they could say anything they wanted to men, no matter how insulting, and they stunned if anything happened to them. Their hostility was palpable.
The worst ones also set their standards for men way too high. They thought they deserved someone way out of their league. They had no gratitude whatsoever and looked down upon and abused many of those who didn’t met their standards.
The attractive ones were smart, pleasant and had a sense of humor. The unattractive ones were none of those things.
I have mentioned before one evening I was sitting in the room of one of the best ones as she was putting on her make-up. Out of the blue (and I have no idea why I asked this) I asked her how many guys had asked her out for the weekend.
You know what she told me? Seven! I didn’t even know what to say (this is what happens when you’re friendly and pleasant).
One of the mostly unattractive girls in the house never had a guy ask her out in that year-and-a-half. But since my room shared a wall with her I could hear what was going on in her room.
One night I had her moaning (she woke me up) and knew what was going on. The next morning I woke up as he left so I looked out the window. He was way better-looking that her so I figured he’d never see her again.
Another girl in the house wasn’t bad-looking at all but wasn’t all that intelligent or pleasant. She did have one date but when he called for a second one she said no. She told me about it. She said he asked her, “So you’re blowing me off, huh?” I thought, why are you telling me this?
That was the only date she had in a year-and-half. The other one could get a guy to fuck her but that was it.
Those two never showed any interest in men but sat there like bumps on a log and expected guys to poof, just magically ask them out.
None of the unpleasant ones have been married or had children. And of course it is men’s fault!
I also knew another girl (who did not live in the house and met at a convenience store when she hit on me) who was attractive and pleasant and had a sense of humor. She flirted with guys she was interested in and they fell over each other to ask her out. She just mowed them down – including me.
My life has confirmed what I learned in that year-and-a-half without exception.
I get guys (the ones I call the Lost Boys of the Manophere) telling me “women have changed since you were younger!” Guess what? They haven’t, since human nature doesn’t change.
