Long or Short Mail Order Brides?
I am completely disillusioned with the dating scene here in the states- I think a majority of the girls have a perverted sense of entitlement, and the ones that are actually good looking can basically get away with murder. I also believe I have perhaps discovered an economic rationale for my observations…
I think that women have a much higher opportunity cost because they are laden with so many dating options. The value that women see in their partner must therefore be less than the value that men see in their partner. Imagine a typical couple in any social setting. Now imagine them separating and seeking a date in this setting. It is a certifiable fact that the girl will have a much better chance of getting a date than her partner. I can honestly say that all of my ex-girlfriends would be much more successful finding a date than I would. They were always getting hit on while we were dating, and sometimes guys had the audacity to do it blatantly right in front of me. As an aside I am a decent looking guy, but I am in very good shape. I was usually taken aback when guys much smaller than me would hit on my girlfriend. This is only further evidence of how unevenly balanced the social construction of dating has become.
I understand that Mail Order Bride is a pejorative term so I was hesitant to use it in the title, but any other euphemism would just not fit or receive a suitable number of comments. I am legitimately considering a “tour” to Eastern Europe- Russia and the former satellites- to look for a respectable girl. Does anyone have any firsthand knowledge or know a relative or friend that has actually tried this? Perhaps it is only an anachronism, but is it possible for a girl to be pretty, domestically inclined, intelligent, and actually “cool” without being a bitch or having lived a life of complete debauchery from 20-25? Are you long or short Mail Order Brides?
