Warning: This post contains grossly offensive caricature about all women being potential gold diggers to make the point that there’s no getting around the need for men to have an income. Your mother probably wasn’t like this at all, and you probably aren’t like this. But you probably know someone just like this and dislike her…
Look there’s no way around this, if you’re a man, your income is a critical factor in your Sex Rank. I’m not saying you need to be a millionaire, but you can’t be broke. The only way you get women when you’re broke is by playing up the thug bastard card and getting it done on the basis of pure dominant physicality. Frankly that just doesn’t seem a viable option to what I imagine my default MMSL reader to be, so I don’t spend much time advising how to walk around like you’re an off-duty bouncer with a short fuse. Otherwise your option is luring women into your bed with cystral meth. (Though to be honest I find the cystral meth girls tiresomely clingy.)
So anyway… you need to earn an income. Ideally you have a disposable income.
I hate to sound like I’m shitting on the morals of women here, but every women has her price point differential where another guy can come in with a bigger wallet and take her from you. In fairness to the women, that price point differential is usually pretty sizable and as an awkward comfort… the practical reality of another guy meeting that price point and wanting her, is fairly small. Let me explain…
Assume Andrew and Anna are married. Andrew makes a fairly good income and pulls in $75,000 a year and Anna quite likes him. All is well.
Entering into the picture is Bob, who in most ways is pretty similar to Andrew, except he makes $125,000 a year. Bob makes a play for Anna, and while tempted, she declines his advances and stays with Andrew. The math being +$50,000 income a year being not enough for her to engage her hamster and find a way to rationalize dumping Andrew. Price point differential not met.
After that she meets Cory who is in most ways fairly similar to Andrew, except he makes $200,000 a year. At the +$125,000 differential, Cory is making nearly three times as much money as Andrew and over a period of four months Anna falls deeply in love with Cory and starts the affair that ultimately ends her marriage to Andrew. Pregnant to Cory, he proposes to her once the divorce to Andrew is finalized.
Now let’s imagine all that again with the same players, but with one critical difference… Andrew lost his job three years ago and never found another one. So his income is $0.
Anna has been totally disgusted with Andrew for at least the last two years and when Bob makes a play for her, his $125,000 income gets full credit as (+$125,000 differential) and he’s a knight in shining armor coming to her rescue. She doesn’t exactly immediately crush on him, but it does develop and grow quickly. There’s a lot to like about him.
Later she meets Cory who has +$75,000 income over Bob. Cory’s interest is very flattering to be sure, but she’s loyal to Bob who did after all save her from finanical ruin. +$75,000 wasn’t enough to swing her interest.
… if the ladies reading really are honest, some guy making triple what your husband makes offering you a permanent deal really is going to be pretty damn tempting, but it’s also not something that’s very likely to happen. That’s because you just aren’t good looking enough to have that happen. If you were hot enough for that sort of guy to try and poach you from your husband, you never would have married your husband in the first place, you would have held out for a richer guy from the get go. As ugly as all that reads, that’s how Sex Rank works.
In Sex Rank terms, Andrew and and Anna are 7′s. Bob is an 8 and Cory is a 9. When the 8 male tempts the 7 female, she stayed loyal “good wife”. But when the male 9 tempted the female 7, she totally flipped out and ditched the male 7 as one would expect…. Except in reality a male 9 would not try and poach a female 7 for a permanent relationship. In reality Anna might crush on Cory, and he might screw her on the side, but he’d be quite content to see Andrew and Anna stay married.
But if the husband is totally tanking on his income, suddenly nearly any guy making a decent income starts looking really good. If Andrew turns into a zero income Lord-of-XBOX, his Sex Rank drops into the 3-4 range after a couple years. Hell Anna at 7 might very happily switch Andrew out for any other male 7, let alone Bob (8) or Cory (9).
So guys, there are no shortcuts on this stuff. There is no Game that can overcome you being broke.
And yes, all this exact stuff applies to men as well. We all have a beauty point differential where the girl is just so hot our morals go out the window. But realistically there’s not much danger of us getting her in the sack because she’s out of our price range. Of course if our wife turns into an obese sexless shrew… well nearly any woman starts looking good.
See how that works?
The caveat being you can’t only bring an income to the table. It’s a big factor in male Sex Rank, but certainly not the only factor.
