Re: Advice: Am I being ridiculous?
Saki - I am married to a natural alpha male. The "secret" you are talking about is not acheived by childish antics like POA crap. The "secret" - the fact that I know my husband could easily nab another woman - does in fact make me know his worth. I know he is valuable to other females because I have eyes, I am a perceptive female, and the upstanding, honorable way he treats me shows me his worth, and I know other females would value him as well.
However, it is never a one sided worth, or this "secret" will not work. My H knows I can easily nab another man as well. He knows my worth the market.
Both of us having high value on the open market is evident to the other. Yes, we both cherish each other a bit more due to this. BUT...neither of us do some kind of stupid tricks to "show" our value on the open market. If we did so, we would simply look lame and silly to each other.
You are implying, I think, that a man, according to MMSL, should "game" his way into appearing that he has worth on the open market.
But a man who DOES have worth on the open market needs to do nothing to "prove" this....it is simply evident.
True alpha males don't need to read books to figure out how to "have game".
