Hey Chill ... what's up with the "woot woot"?

What the Hell is that?

How does "woot woot" relate the men chasing women?

I can't answer this.
I'm too busy being chased to see it from the other side.

But if it's a problem with you OP do what I do.
Run a little slower.

I don't know, most of the time I see a lady asserting/asking about men and their love of the chase the predominant response is, "I must have missed that memo because I don't really care for it so much". Personally, I prefer open, honest communication where two people who like each other both express that without one them needing to "chase" the other. Chasing is a pain in the a$$, IMHO.

This is not a widely known fact but it should be:

If a woman is easy to get and keep, we lose interest and want something else.

If she's harder to get, we want her more. If she makes the relationship challenging but rewarding, we'll be more likely to tough it out.

People deny these facts up and down. They all live in a theoretical world. When you think about it, it's entirely true for both genders.


Edit:

Seems I need to elaborate a a little more so people understand my train of thought.

I understand you all want easy going relationships without a battle to get the opposite sex. You're forgetting a few things:

-"Judge your success by your effort put into it" - Dalai Lama

Relationships are no different. In getting the girl, and keeping her. In order for there to be a successful relationship there needs to be hardships endured together and overcame.

Nowhere in my above statement did I say "drama" needs to be the conflict. People change over time, as do relationships. The spark dwindles, and overcoming conflict reaffirms your commitment to your significant other. Otherwise you will eventually be living with a friend.

Silly gurl, got the wrong pill....

It's not the chase. It's not the catch....

It's the will of both in staying together.

If you have to chase, they don't want to be caught. If you feel caught than you are in a trap.

If you love it's free. Takes a lill' effort that goes a long ways.
