Are there rules for the date for women?
There are rules for the date and these rules are rules that are set by us as women, and it is fascinating these rules have come out literally thousands and thousands of years of evolutionary psychology. We have interviewed hundreds and hundreds of women and to a tee these rules were the same for women of all ages, and it is fascinating because we do not even realize we have these rules.
Now, we are quiet fortunate because men do not have rules for us. Men are really a whole lot more simple and a whole lot easier to please initially then women are, then we as women are. Now, so there are seven deadly dating sins that we discovered that women have, and we as women have actually created a whole test in this dating process that men have to pass.
And the reason that we have created this test and again it is on a sub conscious level is because for thousands of years, we as women have absolutely needed a man to survive. It was until about a hundred or years ago or a little over a hundred years ago that women could actually own property. So hundred years ago women had to have a man, you have to be married, so you could have a home or you had to live with your family. There were no other options really.
It was just a little over a hundred years ago that women finally had the right to vote. So, any of us today who are in the dating stages whether we are 20 or 60 are role models, are mothers who are probably not women who could really afford to support entire family. For most of us, our fathers would still probably be the primary bread winners. So, even though we today can afford to support ourselves and we can take care of ourselves, and we do not need a man, we still have the role models of women who really needed a man, and so it is subconscious we think, I do not need a man, I do not need a man to protect me. I do not need a man to fight for me, but on a subconscious level we cannot erase thousands and thousands of years of evolutionary psychology and our culture.
So, the reason why we have subconsciously created this seven-step test that men have to pass is because women had to find a man who could provide for them and protect them, because if they did not they frankly could not survive and if you go back thousands of years ago when men where out hunting you really needed that man who was strong enough to go out and hunt and bring home food and could protect you food and could protect you from other tribes and wild animals and believe it or not we just have not gotten rid of that, those thousands of years of psychology. So, we have created this test and were pretty brutal and the guys have to pass this test for their toast.
