“She’ll make the stars applaud when she sits back down…”

The following study was briefly a topic of conversation in our little corner of the internet:

The Paradox of Declining Female Happiness

http://www.nber.org/papers/w14969

Now, I’ve heard plenty of thoughts and conjecture as to the reason for the decline.

But I’ve yet to see someone get it right.

Care to take a shot?

Go ahead…

“Because men aren’t ‘manning up’.”

Nope.

“Because the economy is rapidly draining the pool of desirable (Alpha) men.”

Wrong.

“Because the “self-esteem” and “empowerment” trends have caused women to price themselves out of the market.”

Strike 3; you’re out.

Here’s the answer:

It’s because women have stopped trying to please men in favor of trying to please women.

And they’re learning just how impossible a task that is.

See, men (or should I say “Men”) have known not to bother trying to please women.

It’s a Sisyphean endevour.

Men learned that women want one thing and one thing only.

That is, to quote The Rude Guy:

“More.”

Like so many things I say, it dovetails with Game concepts such as:

Never cater to women.

Never try to please them.

Always put your own needs first and make them the priority.

Make your life your own and let women visit, it now and then.

Women were happier back then simply because the “job” they had was relatively easy to accomplish.

They’ve since traded it for an impossibility.

So, good luck with that stone, Ladies.

It’s heavy as Hell.

And I mean that literally.
