    "I don't want a guy who takes himself too seriously!"

    This line:
    "I don't want a guy who takes himself too seriously!"

    Is everywhere on female dating profiles. Search on Google for "site:match.com "himself too seriously" and you will get over 100,000 results.

    It is yet another calling card of the hypergamous twat who is in thrill-seeking mode. But as I write this, I notice something else in society. I was just walking to get pickup at a restaurant. On my way I saw two different 20-something women, both with backs ramrod straight, a mean-looking expression, chin up, striding purposefully. They both should have, by all rights, moved forward with gender reassignment surgery. They displayed none of the elegance of a lady. This shouldn't surprise anyone. But are the careerist, self-serious, calculating things that most Western women have become in any position to ask for a man who "doesn't take himself too seriously?".

    These same women adopt male mannerisms, male posture, sometimes male haircuts, male conversation patterns, male profanity; they put their career first. They walk around with 360 degree b*tch-shields and do away with any harmonious nature, any delicate sensibility, any worldview that would complement a man's sense of drive. Instead, they are in the hunt as well - just trailing, making excuses, doing a second-rate job, filing lawsuits for why they only catch 60-70% as much game, and well......looking every bit as serious, if not more so, than men.

    These women optimize every minute of the day, and are competing with one another for being the most "efficient" Cat Lady in the world. Let no man stop them from their destination, no matter how "seriously" or not he takes himself.

    Most likely women are plagiarizing other women's profiles, using them as some sort of dating profile template. Don't forget the infamous, "If you can't handle me at my worse, you don't deserve me at my best."

    Oh boy, I've heard that line in many different forms. In addition to that, here's two more from the top of my head.

    "I want a guy who doesn't invest to much into himself."

    "I don't want my future husband to put all the time into his work."

    As for the women who look like men, all I will say is this. If it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck and looks like a duck... you get the picture. The women today are taking on more masculine traits because of all the mixed messages they get as well as the careers they invest their time and effort. Women taking on more leadership roles and told to be more aggressive to get what they want are simply gonna end up in the logical conclusion. You start acting like a man enough, you practically become one.

    On the flip side, just look at men who act feminine. They start to acquire feminine traits and thus become more womanly. Like the masculine woman, they won't literally become the opposite sex but they'll come close to it without the gender reassignment surgery.

    I once heard of a woman that was a mother to one of the guy's in our enlarged group divorce her husband because he was always at work. This is when she was a SAHM and the guy was working in IT pulling $120k/year. Literally shows that you can't win with them.

    Re: "I don't want a guy who takes himself too seriously!"

    I'm only guessing with these extensions-of-logic, but ...

    "I don't want a guy who takes himself too seriously! (I want a guy who takes ME seriously!)"

    "I want a guy who doesn't invest too much into himself. (I want him to invest everything in ME.)"

    "I don't want my future husband to put all the time into his work. (I want to boss him around at home, too.)"

    As for those "Geschäft-Führer" women you saw at the restaurant, Jagr, I've seen the type, too ... you half-expect them to be goose-stepping as they march through the environment, solidly, sternly, as if they can feel the very earth quake at the stomp of their feet. They could scarcely look any less feminine, though they might be "dressed to impress" ... they'd be better-suited wearing a black SS uniform from World War II, with jackboots and riding britches, swastika armbands and that little skull-and-crossbones badge on the strap of their peaked cap, ready to shout, "Into the boxcars! All of you!"

    That 360-degree, 240-kilovolt bitch shield is all the contraceptive they need. I don't doubt I could get it up for them, but damn if I'd want to bother.

    It may partly be the somewhat puerile wish to keep everything "fun". The problem is that serious challenges will have to be faced; and with the princess rainbow unicorn attitude, those things are not going to be faced effectively. Joking, playing around, making fun of everyone and especially one's self are great, but a man needs to have some sort of sincere enthusiasm, some sort of passion, some sort of dignity. Even Laurence Sterne had them. Those women? Rarely. Life's like a sitcom, until they hit the wall and realize they are completely miserable. "I don't want a man to take himself too seriously": "I want my old, fun life back and forget about my serious problems."

    An old friend of mine had a girlfriend like that once. They had all the fun in the world, but when his father died, she couldn't do a thing. Joking around didn't help, of course; true emotional support she couldn't give, let alone talk about it: emotionally she was a 14 year-old girl, and all she ever did was watch comedy shows. Shortly after she broke up with him: I guess he took his grief over his father too seriously. Incidentally, its mostly the women who have their bi-polar sob stories. I've never known a guy who called himself depressed; I've known over half a dozen girls who did so. Some of them probably only did so for attention. Then its time to start taking things seriously. In other words, it's as BeijaFlor phrased it: "take me and my problems seriously, but you are not important enough to be taken seriously".

    Where I live, most annoying women are those who think they have achieved some higher intellectual level while studying at university. And I have more than twice eavesdropped on conversation where these women rant about men they could never dream to date with. More than ones I have found myself in this hated group of "basic engineers" who seem to be the big turn off to these "intelligent" humanist girls.

    I just wonder how they can think of themselves as any special because in library and every café I visit I see this same brand of women there talking about stupid women talk in far too sophisticated and exaggerated way. I often hear men talk about really intelligent stuff in very casual manner, but women tend to talk about how they're being intelligent AS A LIFESTYLE rather than anything else. I just wonder why they bother explaining their requirements for men with "I want someone who I can talk about intelligent stuff". Ridiculous!

    My favorite repeating line is:

    "I don't need a man, I want one."

    What man wants a woman that doesn't need him? Not a one.

    This line is the same as , I'm independent. They think we are looking for strong independent women that don't need us.

    What a crock of shit.

    "I don't want a guy who takes himself too seriously!"

    I encountered this line of bull some years back.See, a woman must have absolute control over the activities of her designated wallet. She can't make plans for a big family and whatnot if her "investor" backs out on the deal.

    A man driven to accomplish something by nature puts her secondary to his goals.When I was still Active Duty, my then girlfriend crapped a brick because I went to a squadron briefing on flight training programs instead of eating lunch with her. Due to politics it didn't work out, but she was seething at the concept I'd put flight training ahead of her.In hindsight , I realized taking ownership of my own future by definition threatened her own.

    From a girls perspective, us men are just oxen. And you don't want a defiant animal.

    I agree that it is probably often used to excuse her own behavior. If a guy is too "serious", he might also be judgemental about her party girl behavior. "He got upset cause I flashed my tits. Like ohemgee!" Also get the feeling it is also used to give the guy the message that she's fun and easy to get along with in an effort to increase attraction towards her.

    I have to take issue with this. You can pump-&-dump a "strong independent woman" with a clear conscience.

    (As if you'd want to. Give me a cute P4P chica and a pina colada.)

    It's a bullshit statement from a species that can't tell the difference between what they want and what they need. Make no mistake, if you don't take yourself seriously, she won't take you seriously.

    Not my problem anyway.

    Re: "I don't want a guy who takes himself too seriously!"

    All too often, I saw the type during St John Amb college ball duties. Invariably we'd be rolling the little... darlings(!) into recovery, deadlifting them from toilet floors slick with piss and vomit...
    Monitoring closely in case they toppled off the stage or table they were on in their 5-inch heels.. (shudder)

    They'd also be the ones having a quickie RIGHT IN FRONT OF ME when I'm standing there in high-viz with a response bag over my shoulder...

    Thanks, but no thanks. Ideally - if I hadn't suffered the shit I had, I'd want the kind of intelligent, mature, down-to-earth girl that would also be a good team-mate in uniform and in life.
    You know - the kind of woman who was on the "marriage track" in the 80s...

    The Intelligent Best friend instead of the flighty alpha bitch.

    The one that really pisses me off in the UK is the word "bubbly" often accompanied with the word "outgoing". This means she basically she's loud mouth and never shuts the hell up.

    Google: site: pof.com "year old woman" uk "bubbly" - over 52,000 results for the UK only!

    AAAAGGGHHHHHH!!!!! Likelihood of ending up having to hold her hair out of the way as she pukes her guts up? HIGH.
    Likelihood of having to TREAT her yourself? HIGH.

    Likelihood of spending time in Cas while she has a gastric lavage done? HIGH
    Likelihood of having to "parent" the bitch? HIGH

    Likelihood of having to carry a spare coat or space blanket if it gets cold? VERY HIGH

    Likelihood she does anything like Guides leading or that she did time in SJA/GG/GB? Nope..
    Likelihood she'd make a good wife and mother? No chance...

    It's a sign of true intelligence and clear-thinking to be able to distill complex ideas into simple concepts. (And then explain them to others).

    The obfuscation that seems to be so commonplace in academia nowadays seems to be a kind of defensive tactic that people without true understanding rely upon so their shallow knowledge can't be contradicted.

    Women, being social chameleons, are wont to put together a shallow veneer of understanding. I have met very few women that appreciated anything in depth.

    Heck yeah, so true. The worst is listening to any artist tell you what their work means.

    The closest I ever came to falling in wove was with a chick who was highly intelligent. I remember her telling me that she had seen The Last Samurai with Tom Cruise. I asked what it was about. Without hesitation, she said, "It's about how the invention of modern combat with firearms takes away the nobility of the warrior traditions of the past." Who can do that? Its rare that I meet anyone who can distill an experience so succinctly.

    Fortunately, I escaped with my singlehood.

    Dont throw away the semi-intelligent thinking one without trying because now you really arent being fair towards the opposite sex.
    I always appreciate women who I can actually talk about stuff with.

    But is it REALLY intellectual thought, or simply an upgraded sales pitch?

    Honestly, I'm not trying to discredit the concept of smart women. I just think we need to distill the essence of what that means vis a via interactions with women in a reproductive sense.

    Think of the "average girl" as a sales guy at a Toyota dealer, and the "smart girl" as a lifestyle consultant at a Lexus dealer. The guy at the Lexus dealer knows he can't hard sell someone spending $50k on a car , and has to know his shit if he wants that level of business. The Toyota salesman can cut corners in his presentation because his customers won't care. Those two guys are selling to different clients, which begets different approaches.

    So I believe it goes for women. Some are smart, but they apply their brainpower the same way the stupid ones do- as in how to efficently exploit a man for their uses.And rest assured, a smart female applying her intellect this way is a fucking scary thing to behold. Such a creature makes the sea stories about the monsterous Kraken look like guides on a poodle by comparison.

    A dumb girl is like a their who steals a car on a city street. A smart chick is like a professional Neil McCauley type theif who robs millions out of a vault.For supporting material, here's two examples of what I mean.

    I met a girl who said to me " I want to be the Chief of Staff of the Air Force. Ok lady, whatever I thought. You , the top General officer of the Air Force. Right.

    But a year later ,she announces an engagement. I go, isn't being married against the idea of a modern liberated woman??

    "If you want to advance your career you have to be married, or folks will think you're some kind of dyke ."

    'Thats kinda cold' I said, and she goes: "Just Business ". ( flashes a creepy smile).

    After the wedding she brings her husband by the house I shared at the time.Uncharacteristically I break the Fifth Wall and say "looks like you've got everything you need. A husband, his money, a house, and his retirement for the next twenty years no matter what."

    'Cheers' she says, and we toast-right in front of her clueless husband.


    Incident 2.

    Last December I'm working a late shift at a previous job when a chick walks in. Unlike most she's got a sense of intellect behind her. We start talking about movies, and she's a Quentin Tarantino fan. Good so far.

    I started feeling that familiar urge as my twentysomething biology corrupts my thinking.Not wanting to game this chick, I start shifting topics. We start talking about psychology. And she said all the right things....then I shifted to religious themed stuff, and she hung with me there. Then I said religion and psychology were bullshit, just to see if she'd throw up a "WTF" in there....nope.The girl started contradicting every point she just agreed with not ten minutes before- but cogently.As if it were her core beiefs the entire time.

    I finished the task and told her the bill, then she got pissy....I think it sunk in that I'd played her like a flute. But the lasting lesson I took away from it, is DOnt TrusT What YOu SeE. The girl you see in public is a carefully programmed illusion, a hologram designed to suck you into cohabitating with a scorpion.They're all arachnids keen on devouring you with less emotion then a 1040 IRS tax form.

    I didn't throw her away. She took a job in another part of the country.
