You summed it up perfectly!
: :romantic love:
: : man = I want to boink with you
:: woman = I want to chain you to me forever
Often a fact, but not always.
: : romantic love later in life:
: man = it's just too much trouble to bolt from that crap these days
Yeah. Women tend to wear down the guys as the years go on.
: woman = I sure as hell don't want to have to train a new one
That is also true and it speaks volumes. One of the reason guys who've been around the block a few times don't bother anymore is because of that very same attitude some women have: you train dogs, you don't "train" men. You accept them or you don't accept them. That's it!
If you women who think that men need to be "trained" and are lucky enough to find a man who wants to be "trained" by a woman, you've found yourself a genuinely insecure man and a total loser.
Of course, men also play the same game with women, and the women who play that same game are total losers or at least very insecure, too.
It's just too much trouble to bother with for me these days.
