Women spend 3000 dollars on dating
Out of curiosity, I once asked this at the dinner table, and my entire family put their forks down and stared at me. I like this question because it highlights the gap between rational answers and emotional responses.Whenever people talk about engagement rings on the internet, here is exactly what happens: PERSON 1: “Hey guys! What a heteronormative paternalistic anachronism.” PERSON 3: “I spent on my engagement ring and we’ve been married 58 years.” PERSON 4: “Forget diamonds.He has the beginnings of male-pattern baldness: baldness that says, “I've lived, I have money, here is a bracelet.” He is about to lean into her neck, maybe take a big old bite out of it, and she hangs back, only for a moment, only to tell us her secret, which is: “Look, I got a bracelet.”Everyone on Seeking Arrangement knows what they're there for, Thurston says.
And then suddenly, this knight, on a white horse, with these colors flying, would come charging up and draw his sword…
So one day when he was at the gym, he saw this old guy with a very pretty young lady, and when Thurston expressed confusion to his trainer, his trainer explained that the geezer was her sugar daddy and that the young fawn was his sugar baby.
Well, you could barely keep Thurston on a lat-press machine after that.
He dashed home and did some Googling and found Seeking Arrangement.com, a site built for wealthy (to varying degrees) men who are seeking a formal (to varying degrees) arrangement for sex and (to varying degrees) companionship with someone who in turn is looking for cash and prizes without any drama.
Drama, according to Thurston, includes taking your time to decide whether you want to have sex, having any motive beyond the one you stipulated up front (which was greed), and a presumption that you will be courted. Sugar dating is the oldest dynamic around: Rich person contracts poorer but younger/hotter person into some combination of obligations that includes but is only rarely limited to straight-up sex.
