Look around the animal Kingdom. What you will find is with most animal species it is the male that is naturally, thru selection, more physically attractive. This is somewhat subjective, but generally considered to be the case.

We humans, animals that we are, can be argued are likewise. At least naturally. Both genders do all sorts of things such as shaving, make up, augmentation, working out, ect... that attempt to improve our looks, but naturally, as with most animal species, if unbiased by gender attraction it is the male again.

 

So how does that apply to MM you wonder.

 

In the US about one in 10 households have a net woth of 1 million or more. By far most those households are lead by a male member, over 55, and married. All that said, think of the likelyhood of finding a single attractive male with a net worth over a million. Do some math, and understand there are far more attractive women than millionaire single men. Think how in demand an attractive, younger, millionaire male is.

 

Good luck in your search.

Most animal species it is the male that is naturally, thru selection, more physically attractive. This is somewhat subjective, but generally considered to be the case.  

I gave quite a bit of thought to your analogy of th animal kingdom hierarchy and how that relates to MM and just had to do some due diligence if you will. On the whole I get it......we are attratched to the males that are physicallly attractive however must bring something other than that to the table. It is my experience that the males that are physically attractive the female species sees as him as strong, protecting and fierce. I do not study monkeys however it sort of makes sence to me with the survival of the fitest mantra.

 

We humans, animals that we are, can be argued are likewise. At least naturally. Both genders do all sorts of things such as shaving, make up, augmentation, working out, ect... that attempt to improve our looks, but naturally, as with most animal species, if unbiased by gender attraction it is the male again. Again what is different is " critical thinking skills" we (women) and I can only speak on my own gender to please excuse the bias. Women see a man who takes good care in him self,,,appearance etc and we micro cross examine that and like to think or assume or hope that this is how he treats everything in his life but most of all he is indicating what he expects his partner to be on the same page with. When I see a successful male confident and well groomed I am immediately attracted to him but not so much on the outer shell as more inside this man I feel is strong, chivalrous and basically "ready for anything" I think in my humble opinion that is the difference. Now clearly there is more married men worth millions that women seeking such but once again let us not forget that we look for what fills our voids at certain times some last forever some it takes a few times to get it right.

I can't speak for others, but insecure women for me are no fun and over a short period of time I wiill determine not for me. Doesn't matter what they look like. I do not like the job of attempting to constantly prop up one's ego. Have to come with one included. I've found many very attractive women are insecure. They tie their entire worth to their looks and feel as time goes by their worth diminishes. I'd say this is why women often are overly concerned when they turn 30, 40, 50, and men less so. I think it also explains why outside of US, you go to the beach, and see fat, hairy, older dudes wearing speedos and few over 30 women in a tiny bikini.

You asked me what I thought wealthy was. I answered. You didn't ask me what I thought Bill Gates thought was wealthy. I can't speak for Bill, and frankly if you asked him you might be surprised what his answer is as he is bright enough to know he is in the extreme as to wealth. App. 10% of the US populace has a net worth of 1 million or more and far less 2 million in liquid assets. As noted, attractive is subjective, and an advertisement purposely made to show the rough side of any actor doesn't change that. Watch the movie Snatch and then Troy and I think that point will be easy to understand. 

 

 

 

I'd add confidence is what people often attribute to being attractive in others. How one enters a room, eye contact ect...Putting one's own looks down on a consistent basis, for what ever purpose , if one, will not serve the person well in attracting the opposite sex.

I'd say 2 million of liqiud assets is wealthy. I don't know of anyone who considers 100k as wealthy. Is a decent yearly salary, depending on where one lives, but wealthy as to net worth? No. Compared to most of the US populace, better off than? Sure, but wealthy? No.

 

 

 

Attractive is subjective. What I think some, mostly males, struggle with is differentiating between attractive males and being attracted to said males. May be a case of homophobia or fear of ridicule for stating what they feel. For instance while I'm not attracted to Brad Pitt, he is clearly an attractive human. Women on the other hand tend to say their female friends are attractive when often they are not. I suppose a bonding thing. Who hasn't heard the cliche' all women are beautiful. No they are not. And all men aren't handsome.

Quoting SpeedDallas:

PS. When did this blog "officially" become high-jacked?

 

Almost from day 1. The point of the thread was that there are very few wealthy, attractive, under 60 year old men, who are not married and thusly difficult to find one.

 

As part of the set up to that thought I mentioned that in the animal kingdom males are generally more attractive than females and thusly it might be assumed that is likewise in we talking monkeys. That was a positive, if true, for females, but no one agreed  That seemed to turn the thread into whether men or women are more attractive. Ironically, if true that women are more attractive to men,  that opinion basically adds to my original point as it says there are more attractive females than males in the population, hence more competition for the low number of young wealthy attractive single men. Then it moved to pedicures and now to where it currently resides. Pretty comical.



WELCOME TO THE BOARDS SPEED!! ;)

 

HI-JACKING around here has commenced since the beginning of time! 

 

You should pop over to our "Blog of NOTHNG!" That blog cannot be officially "HI-jacked" as I purposely set it up that way! When a blonde walks in a room speaking of NOTHING, there is simply NOTHNG to reveal, conceal or determine; so NOTHING can be misconstrued! It's a WIN-WIN! Heehee

 

Yes honey, your blog did read more from a stand-point of "men are prettier than women." You convey your thoughts best, JUST NOW! LOL... 

While it is true the majority of males are "prettier" in the animal kingdom, this does not ring true for mankind! God/ Mother Nature/ Universe/ Big Bang Theory.. WHATEVER ONE BELIEVES..  made women prettier, and man physically stronger.. And for me, that's a good thing, cuz sledge-hammers are much harder to lift than my 5 gallons of face paint!!

I ain't joking when I say; those are some nice sexy feet!  I've never had a foot fetish but everything has to have beginning.  Nice!

 

I just had a thought.  How about a dating website call Footdate.com where people date based only on their attraction to each others feet?  My foot fetish must have already started. :)



SUNNY! SUNNY!! SUNNY!!!

 

Now remember!!

 

DAK and I have met before, and YES! I DID take a sneak peek photo of him!!

 

The reason he finds difficulty in finding a date? 

 

Well, I had to take the photo from underneath the table... 

 

BUT THESE ARE DAKOTA'S FEET!! 

 

I told him time and time again....

 

Crop the ears back and stop wearing pink! ;)

I can understand that. Sounds like the dude who thinks a bearded face is good to sand paper a woman's face with. I can't imagine most women getting turned on by that either. Good health and hygiene are sexy, bad in either by either genders a turn off. Cutting one's nails is not a pedicure.

 

I still with  contend the the day I get pedicure shoot me. Just remove my make-up, wig, and nail extensions the day you do.

Perhaps I’m just one of the lucky ones….but some of the men I’ve known in the past, have had some pretty gnarly feet.  Like…Freddy Flintstone had nothing on these guys!  And why some of them thought rubbing my legs with their rough and calloused feet….with a spade on the end of each big toe…..is a good idea…..well, a better woman than me will have to answer THAT question!!!

 

I’m all for man-pedis.

I have a huge soft spot in my heart for the elderly.  I did the same for my grandfather.  Vaseline and betadine works miracles.



Oh, if that's true, you must like me a lot!

I get massages often. I just don't go to a nail salon to get them. If my feet are particularly sore i have them focus on them as any other joint or muscles area that is in stress.

DAKOTA,

 

YES, foot care is imperative! When you witness the pain some elderly endure, it makes you think twice of the "masculinity" of foot care!

 

RMAC--- What a special story! You and DAK have obviously witnessed the hardships some suffer. Mobility becomes difficult enough for the elderly, so foot care rapidly becomes the most vital issue to many. One can get "false teeth," but "false feet" means being confined to a wheelchair!

 

SUNNY- I hear you on the "back file." DITTO here! I was once "a sexist piglet" as well!! ;)

 

The key is-- Find the foot care specialist who massages and pounds your feet!  (and legs! Yep guys, they go all the way up to the knees!) 

 

SPEEDDALLAS-- Couple of thoughts. Proper vitamins, etc.. do not always constitute good "feet." In the same manner some people are predisposed to cavities, regardless of how much they brush their teeth, the same holds true for feet. Many people have "circulation problems" they have no control over, IE: they eat properly, don't smoke, are not overweight, etc... But they STILL battle circulation issues. THEN, there are some who do NOT care for themselves properly and thus their poor habits contribute to their health issues... DO WE NOT HELP THEM?

 

I dated a cardiologist for several months and we debated this issue a few times. HIS argument? He felt if someone were on a donor list, say an alcoholic who needed a new liver--- He felt he should DECLINE them UNLESS they were never to drink again. I felt he was wrong. 1. DUE TO THE HIPPOCRATIC OATH, PERIOD! And 2. Does this mean we quit giving insulin etc. to diabetics who are only diabetic due to WEIGHT issues? Although there are GENETICS that link diabetes to many people, as many as 85% of people who suffer diabetes suffer B/C they have over eaten for so many years, they are grossly overweight. Do we not help them? What about STD's? If a woman gets syphilis due to being promiscuous, do we not treat her? What if a smoker develops lung cancer? Do we watch them suffer and say, "Well, it says it on the side of the cigarettes!"   

 

I learned working in the medical field trying to help those who could not help themselves, to be careful how I looked at the individual. I now apply that with the "METRO-MEN!" LOL.. 

 

Admittedly, I am like SUNNY.. I have to pull out that dusty file box and remind myself I AM A SEXIST PIG in regard to mani/pedi's for men!  I must say, it is a bit "odd" for me when a man I date says he just had a manicure. (Or the hairdresser dyed his beard!) But I haven't dated many mechanics where you EXPECT him to have dirty hands, so it has actually become quite common! 

 

Get a pedi SPEED,,,, where she pounds your legs and squeezes your feet, and YOU WILL NEVER BE THE SAME! I can even hold your hand through it! BUT, if you decide on polish, I MIGHT BE WALKING HOME!! ;) 

 

                               ~~ HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY EVERYONE!! ~~

Massage? Sure. Have ruptured my plantar fascia once and feet, back,legs and elbows can always benefit from massage. On mani/pedicure I can safely say never. Proper health and diet will keep nails from getting overly gnarly. Pedi if yellowed is like chewing gum as the cure for pure oral hygiene. Silk on a pig is still a pig.  Have a good 4th all, unless British in which case sorry for the stick in the eye. Perspective.

First off to assume men or women all think alike is not what I'd assume ever. I know plenty of women who like to see naked bodies. I also have heard from some who'd prefer I not have picture with my shirt off. Similarly I've heard guys who are turned off by women scantily clothed in their pictures. I file that under can't please all. Why try. Might explain why non US beaches are rife with males in speedos.

 

 

 

As to the metrosexualization of men, some women like it and some even demand it, while others are repelled by it. I've found mostly it is more likely approved by younger US women. Is funny as when I was young the Burt Reynolds hairy body and thus the shirts unbuttoned was quite popular, and now, not so much. The other trend I refuse to follow is the untucked shirt explosion. If one's body dictates that hide, okay, but for me a big Nyet. Grudge, and the Cobains started it, and I love that music and it's offspring, but sloppy is not me.

 

 

 

The day I get a pedicure, shoot me. Twice just to be sure.

Quoting Diana3316:

Speed~

This is a very common problem.  Men often think….well if I like something, a woman will like it too.  Example:  Men like to look at photos of naked women, so men frequently offer to send pictures of their naked bodies.  Dear Lord….spare me!  Women do NOT want to see that stuff!

 

My point here is that men are very visual and extremely attracted to the beauty of women.

 

Unfortunately, women have succumbed to the billions of corporate advertising dollars/brainwashing, Hollywood/media role models…. and have come to believe putting chemicals on themselves is required to meet current beauty standards.  Additionally, men reinforce this behavior by being attracted to youthful Bay Watch beauties.  If you ever have a chance to read some male profiles…..many…if not most say their match should be “hot, extremely good looking” and often “curvy”.

 

It seems to me that women putting makeup on and/or having plastic surgery does not prove your point that men are more “naturally” attractive than women.  And you actually never provided your opinion as to what attributes were more attractive about the male form vs the female.

 

And finally, in your original post:

 

What you will find is with most animal species it is the male that is naturally, thru selection, more physically attractive. This is somewhat subjective, but generally considered to be the case.  We humans, animals that we are, can be argued are likewise.  ……… but naturally, as with most animal species, if unbiased by gender attraction it is the male again.

 

Not true.  We humans cannot be argued as likewise.  Women are far more likely to be forgiving of physical imperfections in men.  This is why men don’t feel a need to wear makeup.  Although women may take a precursory look at a good looking man….it is a fleeting criteria.  As long as his looks are within normal limits, she may still select him.  How many times have you seen a really good looking woman with a very ordinary looking man?  (Even Henry Kissinger got a woman to marry him)  Human males are selected due to their behavior….not due to their physical attractiveness…..generally.  What can be effectively argued....is that that behavior is typically the appearance of power and dominance.  I do not mean a man that behaves like a brut.



Thanks, Diana for this. It's the socio-cultural programming aspect that hasn't somewhat quite dropped for Speed. Not that women need makeup to look better, but that both men and women have been programmed by the media to believe that women need it to look better. We don't - which is my simple position. I personally can do without makeup and I have never had any complaints. I also enjoy the ritual of putting on the makeup. I remember as a little girl, when I would watch my much older sisters (teenagers at the time) do their makeup routine; I couldn't wait to be old enough to be allowed to wear some, LOL! Did I need it? Of course not - it's just a matter of monkey see, monkey do! We've been told we look better in it so we dive in!

 

Liv.

I did a pedicure for my Father once.  I did not know it was a pedicure then, but all this pedicure discussion caused me to look up how to do one.  So, now I know that, that is what I did then. 

 

He had asked my Mom to cut his toenails as his hands were shaky and his eyes weak.  She would have done so, but she was only marginally better able so she asked me to do it. 

 

I was a bit embarrassed to do it.  After all, he was my Father.  One of my heroes.  My defender.  The person I had loved and respected all my life.  Dumb me. 

 

So I did it.  Everything per the pedicure instructions as now described on the internet.  Sans the polish, of course. 

 

To hear him tell of it afterwards, you would have thought I really had done something.
