Dating tips: #3 Be generous
If you ask all women to list all bad things about a guy, the most common property would be a guy being "miserly" or stingy. In fact, many other personal pitfalls might be overlooked if this aspect is not there.
The cave woman again, thinks that a stingy mate would end up making her and her offspring dye of hunger while he eats. Or that he will not share the spoils of hunting (meat=rich in protein, essential for baby making, and more important than the vegetables that she can gather). So a miserly mate is one that is unattractive. It has been the case since the dawn of humanity.
Once again, I apologize for the ladies who find this analogy offensive. But please understand that I don't equate the modern woman to a cave woman. I'm simply drawing an analogy of the origin of hatred to a specific human property.
Of all my friends who broke up their marriages, a great portion did it because the suitor was stingy! Or at least was classified like that. A brand that is extremely dangerous and would most certainly ruin any relationship before it even begins.
For guys, it's also very important to know when to be generous and when to practice restraint. No one likes people to show off. But in most cases even showing off is better than being branded as being miserly. So striking a balance here is very important.
A women expects to be cared for, expects to be provided for, expects to be peppered and showered with gifts for a reason and for absolutely no reason. Every little princess wants that royal treatment (and every woman has a little princess inside that loves to be indulged and pampered). Gifts are one way of showing that you care, sadly though.
So if you're a guy, who is "spend-conscious". You might want to take a moment to evaluate your position. The way to do this is to make sure that you show generosity. If you manage to show smart generosity, you'll even score better. But if you don't, then don't worry. A woman always like to "teach" you how to "not waste your money", and "cure" you from your "spendiness". You just have to learn how to be miserly, her way.
Another interesting thing is that many women are actually quite stingy themselves. However, society rarely expects the woman to pick up the check, initiate an expensive "waste" of money like say, a video game console! Or break the bank getting the male a 5 carat diamond ring that is equivalent to the your combined income for 30 years.
So next time you find yourself with a lady. Make sure you pick up the tab/check/bill with a huge smile and a very welcoming heart and pay it. You're being graded on how well you behave to satisfy the internal cave woman. She doesn't care about the kind of hair-gel you have, or the price of the bling-bling in your car. She cares about the resistance between your wallet and her bill.
Trust me, it's better to be a kharoof, than be branded Mantoof!
Again, I leave this article to the lady readers to critique.
