Well I really do think most of the guys are afraid of approaching beautiful women but not all beautiful women are cocky and shallow.

I think Bilbo already mentioned before and I completely agree with it; if you are decent looking and approach a beautiful girl with a original way you might be lucky because she can be surprised that you have the balls to approach her while lots of guy don't.

Not saying that you just said this but I am not buying the argument that having sex with a hooker is more filty than having sex with a random girl in the club who has sex with lots of people because in general I think hookers have to be really clean and SATD free all the time.

I do however thing it's exciting to go for the hunt and to play the flirt game when you go out, rather than paying money to have meaningless sex with a girl who knows her ways.


How this thread is turning out from men/women chances in life to having sex with hookers is a complete mystery to me.

If they are paying drinks to a girl, trying to get her into bedm and in the end having their mission accomplished it's way more exciting and better for your ego, because you will think that your flirting skills are still on-fire. And you will never see the other girl as a hooker. Just a normal girl that wants to have fun like you.
Also, she/you will be clock watching too, and thats just no fun at all, you should get rewarded for lasting longer, not be thing its going to cost you another $60

yeah

not that this is relevant to the thread but from a personal perspective, i'm not too good at flirting. however, at the risk of getting bilbo-like, i must say i've come to realize that a good strategy for me is to:

(1) always maintain eye-contact, looking at the girl deep in her eyes almost all of the time increases chances, imo. once a girl told me that i should stop flirting at her with my stare when all i was doing was simply looking at her eyes deeply.

(2) let the girls do the talking. girls love to talk about themselves so it's good to keep them entertained about their own sutff. plus, this is esp. good for me as i'm not much of a talker.

it's actually quite amazing how these 2 basic things seem to work quite a bit. i'd recommend it to everyone with a relatively reserved personality. it doesn't take much skills at all.

As Sham said, it really depends on the part of the world. Overall, I'd say women have it worse.

The difference between, say Central and Northern Europe compared to the Middle East is huge and not comparable.

Here in Scandinavia the sexes are quite equal IMO.

Have it easier when it comes to what? Women have way more difficult lives in many parts of the world and even in industrialized countries women have a harder life when it comes to things like making money and supporting children after marriages have fallen apart (or if they were unmarried).

...and 2003, I don't think sexual performance or ability to get an orgasm really constitute as great hardships in life.

Women have to suffer PMS and periods. Men don't. End of thread.

Yeah, but we're the ones who have to suffer the wrath of the resulting mood swings.

But what has it to do with what Javi said?

It doesn't surprise me that he's average looking. You've already given the answer to yourself. It is because women rate personality first.

Men's brain got, on average, 16% more nerve cells than women one so the answer is obvious. Sorry dumb sex.

The main problem for these guys is that they only think she's out of his league because of her looks. However, if you look at what she has achieved in life, you are likely out of her league. When you deal with girls, you have to be the price and make it clear to her. Not the other way around. If she wants you, good, if not it's her problem.

They are basic things and I do it all the time.

1) Hold strong eye contact to increase the sexual tension.
2) Make her invest into you, so that you remain a challenge for her. However, after all you still need to lead the conversation if you want to come off as a confident guy.

I suffer my own wrath more than others. I could also go into TMI details about the physical aspects of PMS but I don't think anyone wants to know.

In terms of career and relationship,woman definitely have it easier. All they have to choose is a wealthy guy with a good career. And they have a motley of guys hanging over them all the time.All they have to do is to choose the best one of the lot.

Whereas we guys have to pamper them,humor them,make us show our best personality and have a good opinion about everything in the world. And in the end you are not even sure you would get that. Its hard work if you ask me.
