@pui because friends don`t have "relations"? that`s why it`s not a "relationship"?

@thelonious How is friendship not a relationship?

Relationship [ri ley shuhn ship]
–noun
1. a connection, association, or involvement.
2. connection between persons by blood or marriage.
3. an emotional or other connection between people: "the relationship between teachers and students."

There`s a radio station in town with a host that plays "relationship roulette" where they get one person on the phone, ask them a question, then call the other and see if the answers match. And she always asks them, "Are you married or in a relationship". It just bugs me.

The friend/ "relationship" divide? Because being friends is NOT a type of relationship!

@ Pui,
I honestly agree with alot of what you said. I was trying to be more lighthearted than critical.
Men can definitely be just as shallow as women if not more. (probably more) While goldiggers are frustrating there is a more common problem men face. Its called "Sorry, I`m taken". :-p

You know, money is truly the only great equalizer for men, women have the "power" otherwise.

First of all, I am not saying that women don`t ever go after men with money. They do. However, that is often a poor choice, especially if they are disregarding his other traits simply because he`s rich. Also, I`d say women more often seek men with influence and social status, rather than wealth. In the end it`s beside the point. All I am trying to say is men can be equally shallow and stupid when it comes to choosing a partner.

Secondly, sorry I`m taken. ;)

Hey Pui,
I am a handsome, athletic, charismatic man. I`m not whiny or misogynist. I do not make alot of money. Want to prove all of us "pauper charmings" wrong and go out with me? ;-)

@boNeymiZz what is? A person`s taste in a partner is a matter of personal preference? Yes it is, and both men and women are capable of having horrible taste.

@pui
I think it`s safe to say that it`s a personal preference.

It is also "irrefutably true" that men are "wired" to want beautiful, sexually available women. These types of women tend to be the most b*tchy and are more likely to cheat because they have many men available to them and therefore they get away with that behavior.

Men and women still are both equally capable of being really stupid about choosing a partner.

This is not a bad thing surely? As it means that girls go for intelligence based success rather than brute force (Douche) based success? A nerd with a 100 thou IT job is far more likely to own a BMW than some musclebound numpty.

@goaliejerry well yeah.

It`s the same way that men who are "attractive" physically tend to be jerks because they can get away with it. Women often go for the "bad boy" type. He`s a jerk who never calls you and just generally treats you like crap, but damn he looks so good with his stubble and in those torn jeans!

Men complain all the time that women go after attractive jerks who treat them badly, but ignore the fact that they do the same thing. It`s hypocritical.

This may in some cases be truem but is surely changing the subject to divert attention from the main point being made here, which is irrefutably true? It`s nothing to be ashamed of though, basic anthropology. Female chimps go for chimps further up the hierarchy. Having lot`s of money suggests someone is successful therefore genetically superior and better to breed with.

So the message is that all it takes to get a wife is a car and some cash? Surely that`s the way it was back in the 50`s, but dammit, true love is where it`s at now. You know, soul mates, finding your perfect partner, meeting that special someo...

Oh wait. 21st Century and we`re still there. Got it now. Carry on.

"All I mean to say is that, simularily, men seem to go after pretty, but extremely shallow women"

I would say, just in general, that very attractive people are able to get away with never realizing they are shallow because no one calls them on it, so they never learn. People like being around physically attractive people. So what if she`s a shallow biatch, damn when she smiles at you...

I agree, Pui.

Not all women go for douchebags. Silly little girls and immature women seem to like them, but some of us are smarter than that! (Or atleast we became smarter...lol)

@Quik2TheStab I agree that a lot of girls do gravitate towards douchebags because their either young and naive or... stupid lol.

All I mean to say is that, simularily, men seem to go after pretty, but extremely shallow women. Going after a bad potential partner is not a solely female trait.

Although, that might have something to do with the fact that I attend a public high school.

Pui, you are right, money is not as big of a factor as most idiots think. However, most girls do gravitate towards douchebags, regardless of how much money they have.

(Keep in mind that I view "douchebags" as being the sociopathic dudes who groom their outward appearance towards tricking girls into touching their dicks).

@Baalthazaq The same way *some* women date (or seek) jerks and then claim "all men are jerks", *some* men date (or seek) materialistic and shallow women and then claim "all women are materialistic and shallow". It goes both ways, my friend.

I am friends with lots of whiny, annoying people that have good qualities as well. They are tolerable in small doses, but I wouldn`t date them (this includes the women I am friends with, even though i am straight lol).

I stand by my original statement. Every guy who claims they are un-dateable because they are not rich is going after the wrong type of woman.

Pui:
The idea that women make smart choices with the men they date is a little much for me to buy. I`ve found evidence to the contrary however.

Hell, I could find more nice guys on /b/ than the average woman seems to be able to find on earth.

Anyway, the point here though is, it isn`t "Anonymity -> Relationship" it is "Friend Zone -> Relationship".

They are friends with this person. They like this person. Hi is not the "whiny etc" type just mentioned (otherwise their judgement in friends is equally suspect). He is the person they turn to everytime the new douchebag cheats on them (or worse).

He is the good guy girls supposedly want.

Every guy I have met that has cried "Wah women don`t date me because they`re all gold diggers" has been a bitter, misogynistic, whiny little boy. THAT is why girls won`t date you.

If you think all girls are only after money, you have been going after the wrong girls.
