Social Status, clothing, success, and more SEX and partners. Your thoughts? - Page 3

post #31 of 51
I think kas is right on but I think it is as much a chicken and egg argument regarding confidence and money. I would say confidence is the most important thing of all with women. Confidence = Money = Survival = Chicks. Looks are very very far down on the list. Any impoverished below average looking guy that refuses to be shot down will score a hundred more times more women than the richest, best-looking, best-dressed guy in the world if that guy can't handle rejection. I'm not saying money or looks have nothing to do with the equation...

I've noticed that there are two types of wealthy people, those who dress well and those who don't. Example, yesterday at work I watched 2 private jets unload on break. The passenger in one looked great; pair of khakis, navy blue blazer, and a lighter blue oxford underneath with a pair of wingtips. The next guy had on a light pink plaid jacket, black pants, and a gray t-shirt underneath. I guess when you have enough money no one cares how you dress.

What should have been taken as the definitive word hasn't been and again people imply that women don't care much about looks and that confidence and wealth have little to do with looks. One reason for the confusion is that money tends to buy access to social situations with attractive women. Which raises an interesting possibility that social change involving apparently more interactions among people of different socioeconomic classes has contributed to more relationships based on physical attraction, especially involving attractive younger men of low socioeconomic status.

The definitive word on what? Assuming arguendo there's some underlying validity to the broad generalizations recycled in such articles -- and I hardly see anything so compelling and unimpeachable about the analysis that would support a statement like "[it] should have been taken as the definitive word" -- it ignores the fact that individual experiences do not always conform to a generalized, oversimplified trend. Human interactions and relationships are influenced by a variety of factors, and what those factors are and which play greater or lesser roles is going to be different for different people and in different environments. Thus, again assuming some underlying validity to these high-level generalizations, their usefulness in predicting or influencing individual interactions or experiences is questionable at length. I realize that you have a professional interest in promoting the idea that trying to live one's life according to the conclusions of such "studies" is worthwhile, but with all due respect I think your posts simply ignore the true complexity and unpredictability of human behavior, especially when it comes to issues of attraction, compatibility, and the like.

It wouldn't be appropriate for an image consultant on the job to speak much of complexities such as personality. Obviously mensimageconsultant posts have to be taken as an oversimplification, if one is looking at them for life guidance or an understanding of the world.

Anyone who has had more than 3 sexual partners is almost guaranteed to have(or have had) an STD. I'd rather be penniless and only have sex with my wife than get the clap.

That is bogus.

^^^ +1,000.

About 100 partners ago I got my one and only case of anything. Teeny-tiny pretty-much-harmless clawful things that I had to shampoo out. That fricken whore!

3 partners was a good week in college.

Responding again to the previous post: Have had exponentially more partners than three. Never had any STDs. The Clap is easily cured by pharmaceuticals by the way.

Anyone who believes multiple sexual partners leads to STDs might be some form of a Puritan.

He could also be an Epidemiologist. Not a very good one but there is a connection between number of partners and infection. My concern would be what if you only had sex with your wife and STILL got the Clap?

Point taken.

That was not my experience. Nor, to my admittedly second-hand understanding, is that assumption supported by the experiences of those of my friends who are still single.
Maybe this says something about the social circle you move in.
