I occasionally like to troll craigslist from time to time, mostly because the “women seeking” section can have large amounts of unintentional hilarity. (As an aside, I recall seeing one advert from a girl that said “I want to be raped.” I kid you not.) This is one of those posts:
Im looking for a guy who is affectionate, knows how to wine and dine a woman. It would be nice to have a guy that can make time for me! I understand you guys work hard but seriously it takes like five seconds to pick up the phone and send a text to your woman..... Im not sure why guys have a problem with that! If you are willing to make the time for me, dont cheat, can show me affection and attention, you are someone what attractive, and have a job, and a car then send me an email with a picture and a phone number so I can send you a text and we can start talking!
Now, the beta male will look at this and say to himself “wow, women do really want a nice guy who is stable.” So then our plucky hypothetical beta will email a picture of himself to this girl, along with a six paragraph email about he how he would be so honored to be with her and how he would treat her right and he meets her checklist and so on. And she won’t write back to him which will cause him to feel confused and anxious, and he will overanalyze every line in his email and second-guess is picture selection ad infinitum until he eventually moves on to the next craigslist girl.
But really, all our hypothetical beta ha to do was read between the lines of this post. If he did, he would see that this girl is an alpha chaser (and reasonably good looking to boot). How do we know? Easy: just pay careful attention to the following lines:
It would be nice to have a guy that can make time for me.
Only the voice of experience asks for a guy that makes time for her. This, of course, implies that she has been with at least one man who found other things (and by things I mean women) to occupy his time in addition to her. In fact, I would put money on her having had multiple guys treat her this way. And men who treat women like this are alpha badboys.
I understand you guys work hard but seriously it takes like five seconds to pick up the phone and send a text to your woman.
Men who behave this way are most certainly not betas who sit waiting by their cell phones, holding their breath and waiting for their women to text
sweet words of love commands for them to follow. Men who behave this way are alphas with tight cell phone game. One can almost picture this girl’s hamster spinning furiously in an attempt to figure out why he won’t text back.
The rest of the post is simply dreck and not worth one’s attention. She doesn’t want a man who meets her check list, she wants an alpha who meets her checklist. Unfortunately for her, she’s simply grasping at the wind.
