Just something that was brought up in my other question. how do you feel about this?
Women biologically want to marry the good guys-- the protectors and/or providers-- but want to have sex with the bad boys.

I mean, it's weird that people still debate over whether this is a thing... It's a thing.
By this point, it's as well documented as human evolution itself, ffs.
There are literally thousands of studies like the one that @toad-1 is citing in the comments ( www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/272697.php ).
One recent bestseller that does a decent job of summarizing this work is "The Red Queen", by Matt Ridley. You should read it.
In chapter 7 of that book, Ridley summarizes the current state of research regarding all this nasty filthiness:
Yep, even ORGASMS are evolved with this neat little duality in mind. Life is grand, ain't it?
The author summarizes thus:
I've gotta say I agree.
I don't think it's cynical at all, to UNDERSTAND this system -- and to learn to hijack it like a motherfucker (literally, ha ha haw).
I mean, when you REALLY understand the base desires at the heart of female sexuality... THAT's when you can really learn to rock the shit out of a woman's world. You keep telling yourself pretty lies -- well, that's never gna happen.
Also, I mean, come ON, people.
Recognizing that we're hardwired to act a certain way DOES NOT mean that we're resigned to that fate.
These things are not stories of helplessly giving in to our basest motives -- nor of whining about them and giving up at the game.
These things are stories of MASTERING our primal urges, and building upon them to create bigger and better things.
The same can happen with sexuality, too. I mean, you can hijack the fuck out of this system.
Think about the natural system of female beauty -- roughly speaking, a bunch of random fertility signals.
Now, think about all the ways we've learned to hijack that system. Everything from hair extensions to breast implants to high heels.
... think about which effect is stronger. What do most men fantasize about, when they fantasize about raw sex? Some 18-year-old barefoot chick with no makeup? (18 is the age of peak fertility) Or... something substantially different, that WE humans have created, by tweaking the fuck out of that attraction system?
Same thing here. This system is what it is. But, there's like 100000000 cheat codes and mods and custom expansion packs, as it were. (gaahhhh I'm a nerd)
Shut up and learn to play the fucking game.3

"I disagree" (chose A though) because they aren't programmed to do it, but more or less just prefer to fuck the bad boys of the world. And if you think I'm full of shit, just look around you, I mean when the last time you've heard of a "bad boy" complaining about not being able to get some? Yeah, that doesn't usually happen if at all. But plenty of "good guys" complain, right? Who do girls have more babies with on average? Who do they fuck and then go complaining about more often? Yeah the bad boys just go check social media.
Now once they're done having their fun, they'll go for a "good guy" then since he'll be able to give them a stable lifestyle. But before then, he wasn't even on their radar.
And yeah, what I said was "generic and stereotypical" but we'll know there's way too much truth to it HAHAHA
