    Please don't be mad at me for posting another "nosy" thread, but this is the point of my two previous nosy threads.


    Reason: A couple of the girls I work with (both gorgeous) told me they have a hard time getting men to talk to them. So I'm consulting the GT braintrust for answers.

    The presumption (on my part) that she is high-maintenance or conceited. Other than these things, I am fairly confident.

    If they got all 4 limbs and more than 50% of their tooths, I start to feel inadequate.

    Nothing. I've dated a model before. And one girl who looked better than her.

    More attractive women can be a bit intimidating for some because they can pretty much have who they want.

    I will answer you with some examples:
    1. About 50 years ago, I belonged to a men's group that committed to donating $1000 a year to the City of Hope. We had monthly dinner meetings. The smartest attendee was the unmarried woman who was the "secretary". Some of the men would make negative comments about women and ignore her presence. I knew why she was there.

    I would tell women do that - and I would get b.s. about not wanting to marry an older man. Well, I would tell the women that the old wealthy men had sons who were their age and divorced or had male grandchildren.

    2. I had a woman friend who would go deep sea fishing.

    3. When my wife died, I joined a woman's professional organization. I experienced the same comments about men that the woman did who was a secretary for our men's group. If I had wanted to get remarried, I would have stayed in the women's group and been remarried within a year.

    4. If you are interested in the opposite sex, you go to them. You don't hang out with your girlfriends if you are a woman. You don't go to bars.

    5. I had a single woman dentist who joined ski club.

    6. You could join local toastmasters, take a public speaking class, join the rotary. Duh! Women find out that when their husbands die, their married girl friends drop them. There is a reason.

    What makes a woman "out of your league" is often nothing more than your own attitude.

    One thing I have noticed is that some women (and men, to be honest) are very conscious of their own perceptions of relative social status. That can be a tough barrier to cross.

    I never had an issue engaging women unless I felt the price of maintenance was too high. Price is not always monetary.
    I would advise them to engage people that do things that they like to do.

    Absolutely nothing.

    You don’t ask, you don’t get.

    The tendency of some men to put beautiful women on pedestals is stupid, but it’s fairly common.

    That said, some gorgeous women will complain about “men not approaching them” when what they really mean is “men she wants won’t approach her.” The rest don’t even register.

    Here’s the part that’s likely relevant for your friends.

    Why does this happen?

    A woman whose an 8 wants a guy who is a 9 or 10.

    9 or 10 guys are perfectly happy to sleep with an 8... or even a 7, because it’s easy. But they have zero interest long term, and are looking for another 9 or 10.

    The problem is, the 8 woman winds up sleeping with a succession of 9 or 10 rated guys and thinks that is what she is “entitled“ to. As a result, she won’t give 8 or 7 guys the time of day, because they are not what “she deserves.” They don’t see that as an 8 she is just being used by the 9s or 10s and will never have a lasting relationship with one.

    The same phenomenon happens at every level. Women get used to shooting high, and don’t get that there is a difference between a guy who will **** you, and a guy who will have a relationship with you.

    So there you go.

    No woman is out of my league. Never hurts to ask.
