In my last post, “It is hard to figure out how to do a relationship properly”, I made the argument that “doing” a relationship properly is not difficult in general. It is only difficult for crazy women. As the examples of encounters with crazy women I described was rather extreme, I’d like to elaborate on that issue.
Arguably the most difficult women to deal with are those with a so-called Cluster B personality disorder. Those constitute a relatively small part of the population, but it is not a negligible one. For instance, among young women, 6% suffer from (enjoy?) bipolar personality disorder (BPD). I knew a woman who deliberately stopped taking her medication so that she would feel “alive”. In that case, I am quite convinced that she must have tremendously enjoyed her manias.
You may now think that 6% is not so bad. That is just BPD among young women, though. Chances to meet a woman with any kind of personality disorder are a lot higher, but that’s a topic for another day. Running the numbers, you’d conclude that the chance is very high that you’ll never encounter a woman with BPD because you’re not aiming for a triple-digit lay count. That would not necessarily be correct. The problem is that women with BPD are dramatically overrepresented among women who engage in casual sexual encounters. They are risk-seekers and highly impulsive. Fucking some dude in the bathroom stall while their clueless beta cuck of a boyfriend gets drinks at the bar is nothing for them. (This is not much of an exaggeration. Wait for Sleazy Stories II!)
Let’s use some numbers from Berlin, Germany. In the age group from 18 to 29, in the year 2004, there were roughly 550,000 people (source). For simplicity, we assume an equal split of men and women, which leaves us with 275,000 women. Calculating 6% of those leaves us with 16,500. Take into account that women with BPD have a harder time maintaining a relationship, and you’ll probably agree that the chances of meeting one are not non-trivial: women with BPD are more outgoing and they are more likely to be single. Thus, you are much more likely to meet one in a club or bar than you may think if you just focus on the 6% figure.
