This week’s discussion is from Chapter 8 of Dating Essentials for Men. Dr. Glover says, a common trait of bad daters is an obsession with “young” and/or “hot” women. While it is important for men to date women whom they find attractive, putting young and hot women on a pedestal is detrimental to both men and women. While many dating books and seminars focus on picking up “hot women,” I believe this is misguided. These programs only perpetuate the cultural mythology around beautiful women. This keeps men feeling dependent and powerless around these women. Glover says an obsession with hot women is basically broadcasting a man’s low sense of self. Only a man with extremely low self-esteem would believe that having a young, hot, or beautiful woman would somehow give him worth, meaning, and value. We’ve all seen those socially awkward, under-achieving, and out of shape men who unequivocally state that unless they can date a 10, they don’t want to date at all. Let’s get together this week and discuss ways in which we can take a healthier approach to life and women and overcome attachments to certain outcomes in life.
