If we feel cared for, respected and admired by her, we pursue a relationship with her.
For a period of time toward the end of college and the first two years afterward, I was dead broke, living on my friend’s couch for a period of time, unemployed (usually) and still going out and partying quite a bit. In fact, I attracted a significant number of older women who took me under their wing and wanted to support me during this period until I got on my feet.
I believe that status in a male is determined by his behavior.
It is important to mention that there is not yet any consensus on what attracts women to men.
Science has found dozens of factors, some major, some minor, but there is no overarching model that is agreed upon by everyone. Many of these traits which determine attraction are completely out of our control: genetic make-up, physical features, testosterone levels, social perceptions, where a woman is on her ovulation cycle, etc.
It’s ubiquitous, and yet there are a number of interpretations of what actually constitutes status.
There’s outward status (money, resources, nice clothes) and behavioral displays of status (confidence, dominance, leadership).There are arguments on both sides of which drives which: does having money and prestige lead to confidence and leadership?Or does being a confident leader create wealth and prestige? And not only is there some research supporting that women are attracted to potential status as much as they are attracted to status itself, but I feel like I have a fair amount of experience in this area.What matters is the intention, the motivation, the authenticity.To improve your dating life, you must improve your emotional life — how you feel about yourself and others, how you express yourself to others, etc.In the short-term, this can be more painful and difficult.
