We see it all the time with dating data and real life interaction. In any given environment, there are always a small subset of guys that have most of the female attention and the rest of guys are scrambling to get anything. And it is even worse online, when you aren't just going up against guys in your area but men from other states/countries.
And yet, women act like they have a wide range of taste in men when they often pick the same group of men over and over; see definition for girl approval. This has become so common place that groups like "are we dating the same guy?" have millions of women all cross checking that they aren't banging the same dude. There is even this video of a black, female lawyer who found out that her and her friends had all hooked up with the same man.
So why don't women just be honest that they are over reaching for men beyond their stations? Just because your girlfriend and male simps say you are a perfect 10/10 does not mean you actually are. And the men you want are far out of your league. Guys, aren't turning down 5/10 for IG models and then saying all women are like this. Guys approach 3/10 to 10/10 and notice a pattern in behavior before making a generalized statement of female behavior. Women of course don't like this which is why they always try to deconstruct the argument into case by case basis and tell you that you can't generalize.
And the funny thing is when women actually switch up strategy and date the other group of men (aka not getting surplus of female attention), they often end up getting married to a good man who treats them right. Shocker.
