This is so obvious I don’t know why no one has ever thought of it before. A bunch of researchers in London has come up with a theory: An expensive present may signal a man’s intentions but he may run the risk of a gold-digger ditching him after receiving the gift. So what’s the alternative?
… girls won’t be impressed with cheap gifts. By offering expensive but worthless gifts, such as dinner and theatre trips, the male pays no cost if the invitation isn’t accepted.
Wahahah! Sweet! Still I’ve never ever actually bought jewelry and the like in the beginning of the courtship. Cannot show your hand too early, right? The type of guys who would do that are either rich, a sucker, or both.
Damn it though, women have the greatest arsenal available to them: sex. A woman has to merely dangle the smallest possibility of sex in front of a man and he’s hers to control. And the power she’d wield over you is directly correlated to the length of time since you’ve last had any. So really sometimes you just can’t help but be a sucker ‘cos you are horny. 😛
I’m not going to be patronising and say that I wish I was a woman in that respect but I have to say, for once I’d like a girl to court me and buy *me* dinner. It’s very tiring and expensive for us guys leh. 😉
