I have observed over the years how women fall for men who are independent and aloof. Polite men are treated like door mats. Doesn’t make sense to me. It seem to me younger women are more susceptible to this. Smart men do what they need to do to have female companionship. Men lose respect for women who don’t respect themselves. It’s lose/lose. With age comes wisdom. Eventually woman find nice guys after dealing with so many bad boys.
