Hei, I am not saying I am a likeable guy. However, that’s the point.
When I was young, many said I am stupid. Then after I ace some math competitions, they said I am too different to ever make money. Then I started a business. Even after money coming my family would get mad because I do not have a job. Think about it. A programmer costs $400 in Indonesia, and I had a business bringing in $5k residual income per month. Why would anyone think I should work? That doesn’t change people’s mind. You do it. You did it. Many will still think it can’t be done.
Most evolutionary psychology book will say that the girls will pick men that are even richer. You see, a girl in 80% of desirability can aim for a man at 90%. The girl in 90% can aim at the 99%. The girl at 95% then find out that unless they share, the competition start getting tough.
One of my niece is like that. She earned more than I do but unmarried (and didn’t produce children on any other way either). Stupid….
In US, in practice, those girls often end up childless. What a waste…
To hell with love or hate. The definition is not clear anyway.
The issue is every body want to be paid. Many hot women do not care about love. They just want to know how rich you are and pretend that it’s love. I always tell my girl friend that I don’t love her and I hate marriage and it’s all bullshit and if I can choose I would just wanna be rich and collect mistresses.
She chose to marry me anyway and I reluctantly agree after 3 years. If I told her I love her, she would have thought I am a loser and run away. Maybe that’s what I should have done.
