@Kari – Exactly. I drink very rarely. Don’t like the taste of alcohol.

Hey, maybe if I got sloshed, I’d have better luck with women!

…no, still not worth it.

<i>Men who want to be honest & open with the women that they meet, & then learning that’s simply not what those women want. That being a nice guy isn’t enough. They had to learn dishonesty, just to get by, to cover up their true feelings – both their sexual desires & their deeper emotions too – or else be thought weak & needy.</i>

Women (historically) never wanted honesty and openness. The notion that they did came along when feminists tried to introduce equality to relationships.

Men shouldn’t be honest and open with women. Women can offer warmth, admiration, sex, companionship, food, and children. Men who need emotional support can get a therapist or join a Victorian-era men’s club.
