A simple formula will tell you everything you need to know:


L/d (* A)

L = looks in comparison to the other women who express interest on him
d = difficulty in obtaining you

A = probability that you will be faithful to him

If your L is very high, you can set your d extremely high. remember, though, that this is relative to the other women who are expressing interest in him. It is also not age-dependent. You may look great for 44, but your L will not be as high as it was when Jane's Addiction was cutting edge.

Men are prone to underestimating the d variable, but that isn't the reason you get so many emails. The reason you get so many inappropriate emails is because if you don't ask, the answer is always "no".

A I put in parentheses because the it only matters is if a man intends to stick around himself. Men factor commitment into the d variable.

What you may fail to realize or to be able to enter into that equation, is the emotional irrationality of many people..
Complex neurosis, and the games of feigning less interest than the other (playing "hard to get"),

and the "what is wrong with them that makes them like me too much" neurotic projection many people carry around inside..

IF attraction/reproduction was ever so simplified, the world may become overpopulated with maybe 8 Billion people.. Dang, they are already here..

Maybe for good reason Finding and Maintaining a compatible long-term SO relationship IS
the second greatest challenge in life,
since success REQUIRES sharing about 50% power/control with an imperfect messed-up human being like yourself... S

I think this formula thing has effected your long term dating.
Time to rethink this ... no?

[That would be the complex conjugate of A. Which would probably render the result imaginary :)]


love it!!! :)

L/d (* A)


Interesting how brains are not in the formula. :-)

Wait... I just figured it out... it's a formula on how to attract men... no wonder there is no term for brains. Doh!

I want to see how that works out when you integrate L from negative infinity to positive infinity. Also, not to nitpick, but how would you go about finding the derivative of A if d equals 134?

Dang. I knew that I should have majored in math and not literature. I am soooooooo illogical that I can't make sense of the OP's equation.

And so, OP, how does a man attract a woman?

Let me see . . . handsome + a big phallus + money? Aka, the HAM theorem.

Shouldn't an equation have an equals sign in it somewhere?

Without one, this is as good as posting:

"If X = frogs legs, and z= Large American Breasts, and Q= the man's left inseam measurement (in centimeters, if you please)...

Then X(Q)z.

For most women the problem isn't attracting men, its trying to get rid of them.


Yes! I have no problem attracting men--it's just that most men don't attract me.
