#1 Seems reasonable enough.
Men only date women for other nourishment.

#4 Wow at seeing a misandrist comment on Rantburg.

A woman will always accept gifts from an unwanted suitor. She doesn't feel bad at all about taking them; it is her due as a woman.

#6 Fits the primate profile. 50 years ago I read a study that observed female chimps having sex with males so they could steal their food when they fell asleep.... since institutionalized in our divorce courts.

#7 A woman will always accept gifts from an unwanted suitor.

Such cynical white knighting, Mr. McCoy. A woman may behave so. A lady never accepts gifts from an unwanted suitor; among other things, it encourages them to continue their suit in hopes of success instead of wandering off in search of someone who actually likes them, and interfering with time spent more enjoyably with desirable suitors.

But then, psychopathy, Machiavellianism, and narcissism are not ladylike.

Men only date women for other nourishment.

Ultimately, of course. But that is true of both partners in the transaction, to get all economist about it. One hopes the goal is more than a mere roll in the hay, for which, is one is only the slightest bit clever, one needn’t pay anything at all. There is the risk that this will turn out to have been the price a psychopathic/narcissistic/Machiavellian woman was willing to pay to force a romantic relationship — the flip side of that unrequited dinner tab. Perhaps that question can be explored in a future study.

#9 Think you hit on the main disconnect, TW. Herb is unfamiliar with the concept of "lady".

#17 So is Frank G going to delete everything I say or are we going to have an argument?

Censorship is the weapon of the Left.

#18 I miss the Sinktrap. Depending on who or what the topic was I enjoyed checking it out, so often it was entertaining & always telling.
Any chance of bringing it back?
