I am currently in the process of taking a step towards distancing myself even further from society. While I currently live in a degenerate big city where I keep my sanity by interacting as little as possible with the outside world, I want to ascend to the next level and put some serious physical distance between myself and the cesspools that Western cities have become. This means moving to the countryside and, perhaps, starting to grow some vegetables. At some point, I would like to have a chicken coop, but this can wait.
The other day I viewed a house for rent in a small, remote village. The owner is a woman in her 50s or 60s, and quite friendly. As she showed me around the place, she kept chatting away. I liked the place well enough to rent it. It probably would not be suitable for the long-term, partly because I was not supposed to do any gardening, but it would make for a good starting point for this rather drastic lifestyle change.
I was ready to rent the place right away, and she said she would get back to me within a few days. What followed then was typical woman behavior. First, I heard that there was someone else interested, but she would know by next weekend. She was still not ready to give me the place after the weekend because there was yet another person, supposedly. I have moved on in the meantime. Yet, I cannot help but think that women hold themselves back with such behavior. It is not even relevant if there were other people interested or not. Instead, the problem is this inability to make a decision and stick to it.
There are women who lead on two or three guys while they are waiting for Chad, but Chad just never comes. They never tell those guys that they do not have a shot. Of course, there are also women who are so misguided that they waste years waiting for the perfect guy, only getting older and less attractive year after year. This is quite a tragedy. This does not mean that they have to settle for whoever comes first. However, there are rather obvious diminishing returns in every market, be it renting or dating.
I see the same nonsense in recruiting, which is heavily female dominated. I know of internal recruiters who just love interviewing candidates, presumably because it gives them a similar high as having three dozen guys message them on Tinder. Some interview far too many people; occasionally, they tell you about some “amazing candidate” they came across, and this may well turn out to be a guy who is utterly unqualified yet reasonably good looking. The frustrations when dealing with female recruiters do not end there. Some do not want to reject candidates. They just keep them in the hiring pipeline for months, as some kind of backup.
Not being able to make a decision is worse than making suboptimal ones due to all the wasted time. Probably the reason why women act like this is that they just love having all those options at their fingertips, regardless of whether they are real or imagined. As they hop from one cock to another, they fantasize about being able to tie down any of those guys. Yet, they keep hoping for someone even better to show up tomorrow, or the day after tomorrow, or next year. Making decisions is not easy as you exclude other options. Yet, if you do not make decisions, you are not going to get anywhere. Somehow, I have the impression that this is a very good and succinct description of the life script of many women.
