While I generally agree with that I’m not going to talk about that today. I’ll say it one more time, we’re talking about what’s typical, not the unusual exceptions to the rule which we all know exist.Rather I’m going to talk about something much more important and applicable. I would be more than happy if my daughter, when she was in her late teens or early twenties, introduced me to her 35 or 45 year-old boyfriend. I would happily take a typical 45 year-old beta male guy instead of that.

Time for another one of those piss-you-off, think-outside-the-box, smash-through-societal-programming posts. The rest of the article suddenly shifts focus and is actually about how women these days snicker at men courteous enough to hold doors open for them, and how chivalry dying is largely women’s doing. You also know that the typical 45 year-old guy is not creepy at all, but just a normal, boring working guy, with an income and level of maturity and responsibility the typical 22 year-old guy can only dream of.

Younger men tend to go in first and let the door hit you as you walk through. You know that most modern-day 22 year-old guys might be nice, but they also tend to be irresponsible, overly emotional, a little lazy, and have very little resources, financial or otherwise.

I have been pondering this question lately as I have noticed that it is mostly older men that open doors for women anymore. Now, picture in your mind the typical 45 year-old guy. Don’t tell me you’re not doing that just a little bit. Neither of those cases are typical or accurate, and you know it.

Remember as you read that the below quote is written by a Should men open doors for women? Instead of comparing two examples, you’re comparing a polite, smart, put-together, clean-cut, employed, straight-A, responsible 22 year-old guy with a fat, ugly, creepy, pedophile-looking, shifty-eyed 45 year-old guy.

They’ll say something like “Well Blackdragon, would you like your own daughter to be in an OLTR or open marriage when SHE grows up??? Even if the thought of a forty-something (or hell, even -something) man dating a 19, 22, or 25 year-old woman fills you with disgust and anger, try this experiment. It’s not uncommon these days to see guys as old as 26 still living at home with parents, and still spending a huge amount of time playing Call of Duty rather than getting out in the world and building a life.

” (The answer is a resounding yes, but that’s a topic for another time.) Sometimes the question will be “Well Blackdragon, when your daughter is 19 do you want her dating some 45 year-old guy??? Do your best to be as rational, factual, and non-emotional as possible while doing it. Just in the past month or so I’ve talked to two different guys in their 20’s met through my work/social circle, and I’m not kidding, talking to them was like talking to a 16 year-old. Helen noted, the older the man, the more courteous and protective he’ll be to a woman he’s dating.

(Which for some of you, particularly some of you older female readers, is going to be difficult.) Picture in your mind the typical 22 year-old guy these days. Every other word was “dude” or “buddy” the the topics forefront in their minds were things like comic books, getting drunk, and fantasizing about sex with hookers in Thailand. He’ll also be less prone to fly off the handle when upset, less likely to get her pregnant on accident, less likely to be out getting drunk with her at 2am on a Tuesday night, etc, etc, etc. Women worship Steve Harvey’s relationship books like .

You’re also likely skewing the above two examples to fit your emotional biases.

If you immediately choose the 22 year-old guy based on those questions, you’re just being emotional, irrational, and if you live in the western world, are simply falling prey to your societal programming (since many Asian moms and dads would overwhelmingly choose the 45 year-old guy for their daughter).

Here’s a big one: Which of those men are going to be physically safer for her?

Which of those two men are better able to take care of her, or more importantly will WANT to take care of her?
