Men and women. Perfect for each other in imperfect ways. This post will briefly explore women’s logic in relationships with my thoughts on it. I will post an article on men’s logic soon as our logic is completely different, but just as weird as women’s!
Let’s strip it back and look at humans. Our behaviours are determined by natural urges, aggression and influences from society. Men are seen as more aggressive (hunter-gatherer) and women are generally seen as the care giver. Obviously, roles have changed over time and these traditional values have changed drastically but for the purpose of this post, we’ll look at the behaviours of our ancestors.
Studies have shown that most women are attracted to men who are rich and strong. Going back to our ancestors, rich and strong men were those who had access to food and were successful at hunting. Makes sense that these values have been instilled in women over time.
Today’s men are not traditional in that sense. We don’t need to go out, find a chicken and kill it in order to survive. We just pop over to Tesco’s. However, women are still attracted to men who possess some of the qualities displayed by our ancestors. Unfortunately, some of the qualities are possessed by the ‘bad boy’ type and women seem to fall for this all the time.
Now to the weird women logic. I’ve heard countless of times women saying something like ‘I can change him’. Why do you want to change him? And change him into who? If she opened her eyes, the person she actually wants is Tom or Harry, but she wants Dick but she wants Dick to be like Harry or Tom. Why not just go for Tom or Harry? I will never understand that!
I think it comes down to excitement. As much as women say they want stability and a good man, they still seek the thrill they get from a bad boy. Everything would be fine but it just ends up with the woman being hurt and changing herself, rather than the man of her dreams changing himself.
Women, decide what you want from your man. Saying you want one thing but really wanting another is only going to hurt yourself at the end of the day. I guess as the old saying goes, ‘each to their own’.
