Getting mail from my sister never gets old.
Holy Smokes, Kings. This record jams.
Why go to High school? to go to college.
Why go to College? to get a degree.
Why get a Degree? to get a good job.
Why get a Good Job? to get more money.
Why get more money? to get married.
Why get married? to raise a family
Why raise a family? ……………..
I think it’s hard for people to think of an answer to that last one.
My answers throughout life would have sounded much, much different.
16 year old Ben: Marriage? If I could find someone who actually likes me, I’ll marry her
18: I want to get married, and settle down ASAP. Because that’s what you just do.
20: I want to raise a family eventually, maybe start when college is over.
21: Fuck marriage.
23: I’ll marry someone if I find the right one, but not until then.
If you think about everything that we do, we do it all for mating reasons. It’s all competition. As males, we need to succeed somewhere. For some, that’s the want to succeed in their job, in having money, in creating things. For some they want to be known for not succeeding.
Everyone wants to be known for something. So we can stand out. So we can be noticed, and usually noticed by the opposite (or not-opposite) sex.
Or we do it to prove we’re greater than those around us…
…usually so the girls will notice us.
It’s all about dating.
Think about when we were kids. I don’t know about you, but it was always a competition about girls. Who had kissed the most, seen who naked, been with whoever.
We want to compete with each other on a common ground. Whereas some guys are into music, or cars, or football, they can compete on that level. But what is the same for every (straight) male? Sex
Because Sex is universal. If someone is better than us at, say, football, if you can justify “well i bet I get more than he does” or “my girlfriend is prettier than his”, then we can “win”.
This is just an observation.
Why do you do what you do? boil it down on your own. where are your priorities?
Do yourself a favor
