I saw this on Reddit and it was too good to pass up,
Women want the highest value man they can get and they do not care if you’re their emotional tampon, if you fix their car, remember their birthday, look out for their brother, sacrifice for them and treat them like a princess. To the contrary, the very fact that you are willing to do all of those things without even being in a relationship is a sign that you’re a low-value male and thus, not worthy of her time unless she has no decent options.
If you are regularly talking to a girl, doing things for her, hanging out with her and nothing sexual is going on — and by that I mean, something sexual enough that you are not confused about her intentions — you’re her pal, not her next man if she gets free.
So, if you want to be friends with a woman, be friends with her. Don’t plan to dote on her, be a sniper and then take your shot when the opportunity comes along because that just leads to frustration and unlike the movies, those shots almost inevitably miss.
