Alpha Game Plan had a quick, but great, and humorous, post.
He had written before about how short hair is 99% of the time NOT preferable to long hair. And that if women wanted to attract said members of the opposite sex, they should grow their hair long.
Oh mercy me or my, the vitriol he got in return.
So let me see if I can break this down to the simpleton, atomic level so that everybody, especially the ladies, can understand.
You see, this whole dating thing is not myopic or one-sided. There's kind of 2 parties involved. And if these 2 parties are ever going to come to an accord, both are going to have to consider what the other party wants.
For example, it is understood that women would prefer fit, muscular men to fat or wimpy ones.
It is also understood that women would prefer men who are accomplished in one capacity or another.
And because of these facts men, who are serious about it anyway, regularly go and work out, run, and develop some kind of craft, persona, skill, or career of some sort.
Now, as far as my inklings tell me, this is where most American women stop.
"Good, he learned. He is considering my needs. He is expending effort to make himself attractive to me."
Well, not so quick sister. We have a little Christmas wishlist of our own.
Top of the list...
you need to be hot.
Sorry. Dems the rules. Don't care what that fat bloated sow called "Oprah" told you, she ain't sleeping with women. We are. And "we" (that would be the men dearies) do not
Now, understand this is not arrogance or bravado. This is nature. This is our genetic programming. This is outside of our control just as much as it is for you to be repulsed by a guy shorter than you. So don't get all upset if a guy first and foremost judges you by your looks because:
1. It's a prerequisite before anything can happen and
2. It's the most easily assessable trait you have. We don't have to talk to you to find out if you're hot, we just have to look.
Now, with all that being said, PART (not all) but PART of the "attractiveness" of a woman is whether or not she has long hair.
I know you hate that. I know it takes more maintenance.
Tough shit. Those are the rules.
Just like gravity.
Just like Newtonian physics (they're one in the same, but I'm going to guess with your BA you don't know that)
Just like quantum mechanics.
Men like women with long hair.
Now, if you want to take personal umbrage to that fact and call men "shallow" or scream that you don't do your hair for men, but rather yourself, then good. You do that.
Because realize what you're doing. You are broadcasting to the world you are incapable of the number one thing it takes to keep a man - selflessness.
Once again, I suggest you read the comments Alpha Game Plan had to endure.
Do any one of these children sound like they're capable of altruism, selflessness, compassion, or kindness?
They sound like greedy, snivelly, self-centered trollops completely incapable of thinking of anybody but themselves. And when you consider the audacity they have to lecture and berate men for being shallow for liking what they're genetically programmed to like, you know there's just a wee-bit of a dash of pscyhoticness in them.
So let us do this all day ladies. I'm game. You keep lecturing men for "daring" to like big boobs, long hair, trim bodies, and tight asses. And while you're at it lecture them for not liking the "inner you" or your intelligence. Because I have news for you dearies, unless you're an IT chick or an accountant or a doctor or a welder, and you're just another one of the boring, billion "liberal arts majoring teacher social worker communications" types who lecture men for insisting on physical attraction, you merely belie two things about you:
You're likely ugly
And you're likely dumb
Which means you might as well cut your hair short, because I don't see any guys coming your way.
Oh, and for reference, allow me to put a picture of what you should be aiming for. You know, just in case you decided to ask the quesiton, "what do men want?"
