all night long or else you might think differently about sex. You'll never know until you've
its an interesting topic of discussion because i dont know why people do it...i dont know why people "fall for it" so to speak. i just want to understand why everyone goes nuts over love and lose their ability for rational thought or self control. its like people become no more consciously evolved than animals when hormones take over...and it doesnt make sense to me. so i like to discuss it to better understand

Social proof of sexual experience:
I don't kiss and tell
That is not an accurate sentence reflecting an understanding of "Social Proof" as a concept.
Social proof is a type of behavioral mirroring of others in the social setting, that is adopted due to insufficient information about the social mores of that setting.
I.E. "Monkey See, Monkey Do"
See, intelligence has nothing to do with having a big bank account or holding a lot of power..........and these attributes are really important when making a selection. Just human nature I guess.....
Hypergamy (colloquially referred to as "marrying up" or "gold digging") is the act or practice of seeking a spouse of equal or higher socioeconomic status, or caste status than oneself.
The term is often used more specifically in reference to a perceived tendency amongst human cultures for females to seek or be encouraged to pursue male suitors that are comparatively older, wealthier or otherwise more privileged than themselves.

Yes, interesting... you are of course referring to Female Hypergamy, yes?
when the wealth of some people is basically a function of how much they are Marketed, one really has to wonder if their own talents are what is making them successful.
I'm afraid it requires the attitude of "being able to sell you own mother for a profit" and "gotta make a million dollar, doesn't matter who dies" that will get you the advantage needed.
As I said, not intelligence but "ruthlessness" is what gets you ahead in this game. And those two seem to contradict one and other.....
Maybe these numbers are simply skewed by the reality that people with higher intellects simply have more diverse interests and are less active in environments that tend, culturally, to lead to sex.
It is much easier to meet a willing sexual partner at a rave than at a library.
Yes, and that's also the other leading factor I forgot to mention. It simply comes down to the fact that women are instinctively attracted to strong men who will provide for her and her children a secure living environment. It doesn't matter if that man earns his living through ruthless and underhanded tactics, because that's what wins in this society, and survival of the fittest will always rule. Society is structured so that the less morals and empathy you have, the more wealth and power you will likely accumulate. Intelligent people often have very strong morals and ability to feel empathy. However, again there is the other side of this story, because intelligent people are harder to come by, and they can contribute the most to technically challenging projects, therefore are highly valued and can be paid a lot in certain jobs that don't require you to leave behind everything you believe in. This is why it's possibly for intelligent people that have "bad genes" to get very beautiful partners that aren't very smart - but that is less likely and obviously wont happen in high school because not many people have a real job yet.

Being allowed into raves, keggers, and house parties isn't quite an age regulated thing, is it? I was attending these kinds of things from the age of fourteen onward.
One of my best friends in high school had about half of the girls in school crushing on him but just wasn't interested at all in them. He was a graphic design freak and chose to ignore female attention in pursuit of his art. If he'd have developed an interest in girls, on any level, he could easily have been one of the most popular guys in school.
Diversely most of the really stupid guys in our school were sexually active. But they accomplished this by simply passing around the same three or four undesirable females between then, endlessly, for four straight years. This is not an accomplishment at all. Yet, statistically, one could look at the "raw data" and get the impression that these guys were total pimps.

You just have to hook up with a high IQ lady. I did. Auburn haired and gorgeous. The sex is incredible and very creative.

Here is mine:
Maybe these intelligent men we have here has discovered their "truth" about love, here is my guess to what "truth" they have known.
First love is deeply winded with pain and suffering, love in my opinion can only end in two possibilities
1)The love for that person dies OR
2)The person who is loved dies.
Both of those will most likely end in pain and suffering, maybe this intelligent men have made up their minds to not to mingle with love anymore.
Here is another one maybe they discovered that love is a useful tool for control, if you love someone with all your heart he/she can control you or maybe they discovered that love is a useful tool of Satan. Maybe they discovered that love and sex is one of the most irresistible desires there is to mankind, maybe they have known that love, sex and desires for material things is designed to keep us all occupied and to be happy/content of living this life without searching for the truth - gnosis, maybe they have understood that to escape this Hell or prison or earth or whatever you want to call it they have to let go of the EGO and be reborn.
Just my thoughts.
