    Default Why is romance attractive (apparently)?

    Just a musing of mine really, secretly although I know it's not the way forward with women Im a romantic. I love the idea of candlelit dinners, lying on your back stargazing, cooking a romantic meal, giving flowers for no reason, y'no all this shit. Now before everyone freaks out, I don't do that stuff, I mean I'll cook sometimes cus it's a dhv but I don't overdo romantic gestures. I know a lot of girls who say they like this stuff and a lot of guys as well, once you get them being honest :L but why is there this idea that this is the way forward with women even thought its not? Thoughts? Ideas?

    Default Welcome to my World

    You know, I have always been curious about romance. They sound like they are the best thing, but clearly men who don't use it are successful. There's an even greater, underlying fact though: men who know how to use it are extremely successful.

    My friend is a guitar player, and women pour over him like crazy because every now and again he'll play the guitar for certain ladies. The even more amazing thing is that he's usually a jerk and inappropriate, yet not only women, but men also think he's the greatest guy in the entire universe.

    The matter of romance is not using it often. It's about using it at sparse intervals to increase your worth. If a woman knows you can cook or she knows you can be extremely romantic if you want, then she will see higher value in you. If you show no romance, but you demonstrate resilience and some form of manliness, whether it be the jerk mentality or something else, then she will like you.

    Now comes the issue of men who are highly romantic.

    These are the men who drown women in gifts, dinners, movies, every thoughtful thing they can think of. They do this to show a woman "here, if you choose me, this is what your world shall be". Thoughtful, and seemingly glorious, but may I put emphasis on a word in the first sentence of this paragraph:

    Drown

    Women don't like to be overwhelmed with things. Being overly romantic could also be seen as being needy and desperate for the girl. Overall, romance overdose can serve to be lethal to any attempts to pick up a girl.

    I would say, however, that a little romance goes a long way. A good sense of being romantic is nice, but to be truly romantic, you need to know when to do so.

    I think romance has it's place, but that place is after you have attracted the girl.

    It comes in when you get to the LTR stage. Romance is the pull in Push-Pull during a LTR. You don't want to be too available, even in a LTR, but you also don't want to seem too distant. So one day you bring her flowers, the next day you're doing some innocent flirting with a girl at the bar in front of your honey.

    But romance works, just not like they say it does in Hollywood. The other thing is that when a girl is ready to settle down, grand romantic gestures can seem endearing. So I think romance can work at the attraction stage if the woman is receptive.

    never knew you were gay linking, oh wait... yeah i did. hahaha just fucking with ya bro. long story short though, guys do this because they know how much girls love it and they think its a fast track to the relationship the know no better way of getting into.
    If i get a guy some a$$, he gets it for a day; if i teach him how to get it for himself, he's tappin forever
