They usually begin by complaining about the available men. First, they meet men who are already in relationships but who take off their wedding ring to appear available.
Or, there are men who say that they are single but then secretly text their girl friend saying that they are still out with the guys and will be home late.
However, that pales in comparison to the competition women are in when it comes to sex.
One of the most significant issue that I'm hearing these days is how men are not really displaying any romance, and women are feeling increasingly pressured to have sex earlier in the relationship.
Related to this issue of competition is that many women try to determine what potential rivals are doing so that they can be unique, but not too unique as to become freakish.
Friends who are active daters have reported to me some of the backstabbing things they have done to each other, like saying "you look super" when they think their friend looks fat, or telling a friend that a guy they both like is gay or unavailable, just to deter the friend from competing.
To win these few good men, they have to improve themselves and compete with other women who are trying to get the same guy.
And, because there are only a few good ones out there (at least in their eyes) they don't want to be overly demanding.
Many women also feel unsure how to ‘be' when dating - what personality characteristics should they display and hide? Is it ok to be intelligent, or does playing dumb improve one's chances?
Should they be honest about their profession if it's one that is high in status, given that it might mean they are too competitive or challenging?
I was devastated at the thought, but I think we're right.
One of my main areas of research is on how women compete amongst each other for mates.
Overall, then, there is a perception that there aren't many good men out there, and if a woman finds one, she doesn't want to place many demands on him because it might scare him off.Tags: Adult Dating, affair dating, sex dating
