I’ve heard this time and again as well, that just about any woman can get some kind of man to fuck her, but that’s really not true. When I was younger, I used to get asked all of the time if I was a model. But that didn’t necessarily mean that men were falling over themselves to get with me all the time, and there were plenty of times when the guy I was trying to flirt with didn’t take me up on it. Plenty!

This image, which is reinforced in media, that men will essentially fuck anything that moves and can be completely manipulated by their urges is just not so. You are definitely correct that I could still probably get some guy at my local bar or on-line site, but for it to be a guy I’d actually want to be with, probably not. But the same is largely true for men as well. Unless you will literally fuck any woman, you as a man, are in pretty much the same boat.
