BJ'S BLOG 09/11/12 "Shallow?"
Yesterday on the show, we read an interesting survey that will make everyone question the mores of society.
Women today like you for your looks not your money.
Dr Marcel Zentner, a psychologist at York University and his team surveyed 12,000 people in more than 30 countries asking them to describe which traits they most valued in a potential partner.
He said, “Traditionally, women prefer wealthy men who have an ability to invest resources in any children. What we found was that as women because more equal, this preference declines, but men’s looks become much more important.”
Essentially when a woman doesn’t need a man to provide for them and their family, it’s when they become “shallow.”
This is bad news for men but I can also see this being bad news for women down the line was well.
I really hate that being attracted to someone you are biologically attracted as shallow. People are not shallow when they are wired to be visually attracted to a certain thing.
Here is the honest truth for ladies: Men go after women they find attractive and are in their league. Most men are not shallow at all. We take a look at what a woman is or isn’t and then determine if she is in or out of our league. It’s a natural thing we do and we don’t get any credit for it.
How many people have you heard say, “My partner is really ugly but this is all I can do,”?
When a guy approaches a woman, it’s because they are attracted to them and are in the same league.
Now, according to this new survey saying women are attracted to men because of their looks, I have to say that women who do this are the shallow ones. Women are not normally visual creatures and as far as long term relationships go, women who are with men based on their looks are going to have a miserable time. A short term thing is something else, but for a long term thing, a woman can’t rely on looks as her primary thing because he has nothing more to offer her.
What happened to the days when a woman was with a man because he treated her and her family great?
