Re: New to all this!
Although the opener has a sense of humor, it has a lot of failure in it. One you are talking about divorce, women have a need for security, divorce does not support that sense of security so you are loosing attraction there. Prenup, is another one.
You are basically setting yourself up to fail, while sending the wrong message across all in your first impression. I know its a joke to you but women have a checklist, Security is a major one and you have stripped yourself of that instantly. You make jokes like that after you have made some kind of connection, Not straight away.
Men, we need to value our time more then we value women. This isn't to say women are not valuable. But who are we to believe in something so illogical, as men we should realize that without our time(life), we would not even be able to pursue women, but only our mother who gave us life. Why do we think we should prioritize them over our time(life) unless she is the one who gives me/my children life. Man is Sovereignty.
