Are Women Conditioned to Want the Asshole?
One of my favorite English professors, Dr. Elayan, claimed that most, if not all, women wanted men who were assholes. Why? Because they provided challenge. Because women want to overcome that challenge and change them.
But is it really that simple? Is it all just a puzzle that females hope to solve? Or does the asshole guy spark women in ways nothing and no one else can?
Perhaps the asshole makes things exciting, uncertain...keeps a girl on her toes. After all, which girl doesn't enjoy that type of turbulence?
But then I wonder if it simply can be explained by evolution. Maybe the traits associated with an "asshole" are the traits that were essential to the survival of ancient man. Maybe women, as a species, are not evolved enough for the "non-asshole" man.
