This was posted by Kendall Gill in another thread years ago but since bumping is frowned upon, I thought I'd repost it. My thoughts at the bottom. My thoughts - the more I learn about pickup and social dynamics, the more I don't trust people. Half of the women that have hit on me had bfs at the time. Half of the chicks I've messed around with had bfs at the time (which I may or may not have been aware of). In college, women used to tell me "damn, I wish my bf worked out as much as you" while feeling my chest or shoulders or abs or whatever. And that was in college when everyone works out. I can only imagine it gets worse as people get older. I've had at least two chicks physically pull me into their beds, begging me for sex, one of whom was married (Indian chick in college, now in movies/tv) and one of whom had a LTR. They were both hot but I said no cuz I had a gf at the time. Another chick I worked with who was 30 and married wanted my dick so bad but I was friends with her husband (he is a really cool guy) so I didn't do anything. This is why I said, not even factoring in looks and intelligence, that less than 5% of the population is relationship quality. And sometimes I wonder if even that's an overestimation. This shit gets me jaded. Loyalty is rare. I feel like I'm fighting a losing battle by being monogamous as fuck because the chances of finding a chick who is the same way are super slim... much less a chick who feels the same way AND is hot AND is smart AND puts the toilet paper over instead of under, understands that credit cards aren't free money, etc.
