Q. My boyfriend failed a dating quiz. Should I dump him?
A. If you’re the type that hates to be dumped, then you should dump him before he finds out that you even asked this question. If you put so much value on a dating quiz that you’re willing to break off a relationship because someone “failed” it, then maybe you’re not ready for dating yet.
You see, a dating quiz is written for entertainment purposes only. I’m not trying to be sexist here, but they are usually written for girls and young woman, and they are designed to prey upon your natural insecurities. They are biased towards some unrealistic viewpoint of what the perfect partner is and the perfect partner doesn’t exist.
I remember a dating quiz that asked if my girlfriend reached over to unlock the driver’s door after I let her into the passenger door. If I answered “Yes” then she would make a perfect wife. If I answered “No” then I should run away!
Come on, get real. If that’s all it took to be a perfect wife there would never be any divorces.
My point, at the risk of repeating myself, is that a dating quiz shouldn’t be taken seriously. In fact, there is a good chance that they shouldn’t be taken at all. Your common sense knows whether or not you are dating someone who is good or bad for you. You don’t need some overworked writer, working against a deadline to fill up some white space in a magazine, or on a web site, to tell you whether or not you should dump someone on the basis of your answers to a dating quiz. Not if you’re anyone who is worth dating, that is.
Yes, men think so…or is it ‘lust’ at first sight? How can a woman or man ‘really’ know?
If a woman thinks it is ‘love at first sight’, she may have found an incredibly ‘hot’ guy who matches her ideal social persona ‘catch’. If this guy actually knows how to be a natural, all women will want him and she will have to fight with others to ‘keep him’ (I can teach you to be this man).
Otherwise most of them appear to be quite boring because they try to impress her and don’t ‘get it’. But when dealing with ‘love at first sight’, yes it might be, but then longer term dynamics start to sink in and kind of spoil it.
Beauty is in the eye of the beerholder, I mean, beholder.
‘Love at first sight’ is usually only perceptionally based if not in its entirety. No one can match up ideally to one person’s expectation of who they are or who they should be. Once you find out more about them, you’re going to be disappointed in what you thought they were. See how selfish we as people really are?!
Eventually you go through the hardships of a ‘real’ relationship and very very rarely will everything work out perfectly where the people are a real match (at least in our highly developed, opinionated, individualistic cultural society).
You are only throwing your perception or ideals on who you think that person is or should be (I have done this a lot in the past). We want a person to be the ideal match to what WE think they should be. Most often if not all the time, we find out they are not actually what we idealized and then are a little disappointed. A real relationship is going to take a lot of work and a lot more work than two ‘simpler’ people.
If you can spark attraction shortly after you meet a woman, there is a more realistic chance she will feel deeper emotions for you than her social persona (of what states what she says she wants) and she will often forgive your other misgivings as long as you understand natural attraction.
This is actually very generous of her because now, guys (way) below her level physically actually have a chance. The process of attraction is slightly different for men and women.
Men will often instantly disqualify women for a sexual relationship based on their looks (ahem), while women keep an open mind to see who knows how to make them ‘feel’ the feelings that they respond to so powerfully physiologically and emotionally. They are interested in a mans character attributes because that are things that can be of interest for the long haul.
These feelings have a biological root which she cannot choose or control. This is why an average looking guy who ‘get’s it’ can have more of a chance than a good looking guy who easily proves himself wrong to her right away.
She will resent that most of her counterparts do not ‘get it’ yet but will be open to starting something with a man who finally can just ‘lead her through’ the natural process of attraction…then often sex ‘just happened’ or she got ‘swept away’..this is the way it is supposed to be and that she fantasizes about (and reads in those sappy romance novels).
Don’t be thrown off by what a woman says she wants if you are not that social reflection of her consciousness yourself, she is programmed biologically to react to men who are true naturals with her or who display aspects of being a natural. Do not let that stop you. Her biological inheritance (when in tandem with a true natural man) will override ANY social programming she may have, as long as he maintains true congruency and doesn’t ‘screw it up’.
If you are a natural you probably won’t screw it up when you are reaching that part of her (there is much more leniency here). If you are ‘walking on egg shells’ by trying to be ‘qualified’ by her social persona, it’s virtually a guarantee you’ll screw it up even with any small move. Take the very ending of ‘Boat Trip’ where Roselyn Sanchez says to the wussy Cuba Gooding, Jr. character, “Ok, but you BETTER not screw it up.”
Sure the movie ends with a kiss but who has the control here? Whose reality is he in? Love at first sight, but he is based in the wrong paradigm of ‘being’ that he WILL screw it up because of the power dynamics and several other factors (she is in control by far).
In fact, you will almost put aside the entire notion of ‘love at first sight’ because it’s too romancey for you (although you may secretly keep that dream alive); but you understand reality a little more, that different relationships with different women are going to give you different experiences.
Of course you may be aware of lust at first sight with women you see most everywhere you go, but you really have to get to know her more to find out who she is, otherwise it is all just perception.
If you can develop yourself to look as good as you can and get your internal paradigm and life straight and clear, then you can naturally accelerate the process of attracting women and starting things with little effort. Your focus should really be on developing yourself and living in a natural paradigm, while denying all of the perceptual B.S. that is going on. Be an interesting and intriguing man and improve yourself; HAVE something to offer women who are lucky enough.
Your ‘love at first sight’ from their point of view only happens if you match their social ideal (and traditional ideal of Prince Charming) and then know how to take everything from there…then all women will want you. You do not have to be Prince Charming..that is another article, but remember how you relate to her says everything. She needs to be turned up like a volume knob and you have to interact with her to spark the process of sexual attraction and her interest will grow in you…through time, may lead to infatuation, love, great respect, devotion, passion, etc. from her.
It is all in how you relate to her so don’t pay too much attention to having to have Brad Pitt looks, with Soros’ bank account…that’s the same as you wanting to date a supermodel, except you probably have a better chance than she does to meet your ideal because there are so few men left who really get it and are a great catch in their own right (with some nice social status to boot).
There are countless beautiful women. The advantage and favor is in YOUR hands. There are few men left who are awesome catches AND who know how to deal with these women. Make women want you just by being your true self at all times; an interesting, funny, great guy and know how to take it from there (I can help you there as well).
