Hey, those old chicks might know a few tricks if you know what I mean

It takes two to tango - the guys let themselves get taken in, so must be afforded some responsibility in this.
Why is it so attractive?
Because we all want what we cant have?
Because getting something that isnt easy to procure means more?
Because the girls understand the power they can exert and push it to the max? They're intelligent as well as beautiful and know how to adapt their behaviour.
Sometimes it's not about deliberate and evil manipulation, but just a restlessness and a curiosity to see how far you can go. Just to see how far you can push a situation - how much you can make a man do for you.
How do I know?
I know because I have done it...not something I am proud of now and I regret the way I treated some men.
It's all a lesson - just remember those girls doing it will likely get a major wake up call at some point and will question their own morality.

I have found that the most pernicious type of bastard is the one who thinks of himself as a "nice guy." This douchenozzle hides behind the camo of being soft-spoken, shy, affable, etc. But scratch the surface and you might find a selfish ass whose only claim to being a good person is the thin veneer that masks the asshole within. And when that asshole does emerge, this type will usually justify their behavior by declaiming loudly, "But I'm a nice guy!"
I have noticed the men who are consistently decent and who go out of their way to be good people have no problem meeting suitable ladies, and don't find emotionally unavailable women who view them as an ambulatory ATM machine attractive.
"Nice guys" on the other hand pursue the Show Ponies for reasons just as deplorable as the Pony's quest for material succor: status, a boost to their tiny egos, and (probably) a lack of desire to actually connect with another person in a meaningful way.

I guess the nice guys just don't like to go after the type of girl that they could have a healthy relationship with. Only the ones who like to flirt with every man that crosses their path.
