Bravo and I appreciate your insights and sharing your personal journey. I do think that the mindset that women are prey (besides being spoils of going up the rungs of the hierarchy — which frankly, is a Jordan Peterson assertions also) is also at the root of all of this. Getting to know someone as a whole human being, finding out what they are interested in and if you have anything in common, etc. This is the root of successful mating and dating and I’ve even heard a notorious pick up artist say that. No lines, no patter, no game plan. Don’t ask questions you don’t care about the answers to — try to make a real and honest connection and if there just isn’t one, move on to the next woman.

I met my first boyfriend, Roger, at work. We got to be friends and things bloomed from there because I saw who he really was as a person and so did he of me. Come to think of it, I met my husband James at work too — same thing…..
