Mate Preferences - II

A followup to yesterday's post about mate selection

A lot of guys seemed to be worried about finding sexual partners. There is a foolproof strategy.
1. Do something violent. Hitting a wall is good.
2. Faced with the consequences of this, cop a threatening attitude.
3. If someone shows the least sympathy, call yourself a loser and starting crying.
4. Repeat as needed.

I admit I don't understand the theoretical underpinnings of this strategy. On paper, it would seem to be a low-payoff method. But empirically, I find that it works often.

How interesting that I came upon this article at lunch today:
http://edition.cnn.com/2009/LIVING/personal/02/11/lw.programmed.to.marry.parents/index.html

and sent it straight-away to my brother, since at least three of five of us siblings married exactly this kind of spouse/parent - and paid for it or are still paying for it ever since.

Cheers, Tom
