Women with plenty of time to think about how men should treat them.

I wrote this as a comment on the good Captain’s site, but since it is stuck in moderation I thought I would share it here as well.

In the Captain’s post 300 is NOT a Date Movie, he shares the rather prodigious advice he received from a woman after she set him up on a date.  You have to read the whole spinster manifesto for full comic effect, but bullet point 37 caught my attention (emphasis mine):

Make a lady feel like a lady. I don’t know any woman who are over 30 and single that don’t want to be treated like lady. Open doors, pick them up, walk them to their doors, etc. Like the guys in the romantic movies. Women over 30 who are single have had a lot of time to think about “how” they want a man to treat them.

Having failed in their quest to find a man for over a decade, they of course spend their time contemplating… what men should do differently.

    Unmarried women over thirty want to be pumped & dumped. The proof is in the pudding: that’s what they spent their twenties doing and why they’re single after thirty.

    Don’t worry, Greenlander is giving them the pumps and dumps that they so richly desire.

  2. I really don’t have the time to ‘act proper’ to such an entitled woman! They’re never ever pleased about how men should treat them–not even for a clan of 300 Spartans…spoiling [pampering] them won’t help.

    If she makes a demand, you reply: “You, are, 30!”

    (replace either digit appropriately)

    They keep bending the rules so that they always are in the driver’s seat.

    hahaha good post

    Men dance. Women judge.

    That’s the script we’re supposed to play by.

  7. Badger says:

    Glad you mentioned CC’s post. I’ll be fisking this list in greater detail this weekend.

  8. detinennui32 says:

    So I ventured over to the Captain’s place and perused this list.

    Good Lord. Perhaps the Captain and my mother are contemporaries.

    I can’t wait for Badger’s deconstruction of this dreck. This is gonna be good. Once Dalrock and the Badger weigh in, nothing more need be said.

    Oh, and good on ya, Greenlander. Were I single, I’d be bringing home some of that low hanging fruit for myself.

  9. Mina says:

    My idea of a date is a couple of beers and some pumping. I had no idea it’s supposed to be this difficult :-0

  12. I suppose the irony is that since women often reject good men because the men don’t treat them as they picture, this has lead to men also having some time for thinking….thinking which leads to not wanting women. Can’t blame them a bit.

    The superiority screamed out in this quote:

    “A waitress who still lives at home probably is fine with a movie for the first date. A woman that has a career, her own house and is indepedant expects more because they give themselves more and will give you more.”

    IOW, those unsophisticated, uneducated women will be happy with such juvenile amusements as a movie, but I, a modern career woman must be treated like a queen.
    Also, again, I imagine the men must think, you have a career, a house, and are independent, you certainly don’t need me.

    Dalrock,
    I want to let you know I think you have one of the best blogs out there right now. I read most all of your posts, but I just don’t get the time to comment, plus I sometimes just don’t know where to start as there is so much to say.

    [D: Thanks Laura!]

    I heard this years ago: “When men sleep, women scheme”

  14. Kate says:

    I dunno, I had a fantastic time at 300! It’s very campy and hilarious in its own way. In fact it got me a little hepped up if you know what I mean…

  15. Anonymous says:

    THIS IS SPARTA! is good for the testosterone.

  16. Anon says:

    My response there was that the reason WHY these women are single in their 30s is precisely the huge list of demands men must meet.

    Aging cougars with a lot of demands better get used to being around cats.

    Greenlander:

    What most of these Amerobitches never seem to understand is that they should actually behave like ladies if they want to be treated like ladies. Get down on one knee and put one of these Amazons on a pedestal; she’ll kick your teeth down your throat for your trouble.

    I actually go a step further than you; I don’t even think they deserve to be ‘pumped and dumped’; they shouldn’t even be rewarded with sex. They really should just be avoided.

  18. Anonymous Reader says:

    It seems someone has confused “thinking about men” with “fantasizing about men”.
    I wonder how much emotional porn …er…”romantic fiction” she reads?

  19. I covered this one, as well.

    But I did a bit more analysis.

  20. Mister Lettuce says:

    I love how these women just expect this, but make no mentioned offer to respond with the same kindness.

    Curtesy and respect go both ways.

  21. Anonaconda says:

    So my extension, when women are 40, they are even more certain of exactly how a man is to treat them.

    Amen my brothers. Modern women have power but, no respect. A man can open doors, walk them home, pull out there chair. But when it comes time to cook, clean, etc, they feel it is beneath them. I can not tell you how many single women I know that do not know how to cook. Most men I know do know how to cook.

  25. Neill Johnston says:

    The younger woman, is carrying around with them far less emotional baggage, due to a lesser amount of dating, compared to a lot of older woman who unfortunately, are carrying around a lot of emotional baggage.
    So, who do you date, a younger woman, who has lesser dating experiences, and no, or very little emotional baggage, compared to an older woman, who has a lot more dating experience, AND, a lot of emotional baggage.

  26. The Duke from Italy says:

    greetings from Italy, where all this situations grows each day too…

    I wish to spend my 2 eurocents too.. Let me say that there is little difference between single mothers and women who’ve never had kids. Most are the same, want basically the same things in life, with all the same laws, psychology and sexual drives at their disposal to manipulate men into being sperm donors, money donors, responsibility donors, work donors, emotional crutch donors, and every other kind of donor there is. Men are portrayed as and encouraged to be the “stronger” sex in our culture. Women are portrayed as the “weaker” sex. Only younger, prettier women are idealized. Marriage is nothing other than a legal contract in reality, I don’t care how much religious and self delusional fantasy bullshit you assign to it. As a result, women in our culture use men, sex, psychology and the law to their advantage (even to the extent of using their own offspring as hostages) to acquire what they want. Most claim they want “security”, a “responsible husband”, etc. These claims are a cover up for what they really want….a life of leisure with as much luxury as possible at someone else’s expense. They are taught this by their mothers for the most part, and the charade is compulsively and constantly reinforced by the media and entertainment industry from a very early age beginning with silly stories such as “Cinderella”. “Barbie” is the most revolting, disgusting, delusional and possibly the most profitable portrayal of the human female. Most (if not virtually all) females in our culture are intimidated by “barbie” and aspire to her, if not she would never sell as well as she does. These are only a few of the facts that manifest the underlying insidious reality of our cultures sinister distortion of human sexuality. As both men and women, our real desire is to experience love and friendship, which will never be possible under the current circumstances, hence this post, millions of other posts, millions of books, thousands of “support groups”, thousands of therapists, and……all the confusion.

    So, at last, let me end my post with a tale for boys only, as a remark for the future, i hope you’ll tell them about it:

    “”Once upon a time, A Prince asked a beautiful Princess:”Will you marry me?” The Princess
    said NO And the Prince lived happily ever after and rode motorcycles and
    fucked skinny big titted broads and hunted and raced cares and went to
    naked bars and dated women half his age and drank whiskey, beer, and
    Captain Morgan and never heard bitching and never paid child support
    or alimony and ate pussies and ass-fucked cheerleaders and kept his
    house and guns and never got cheated on while he was at work and all his
    friends and family thought he was fuckin cool as hell and had tons of money in
    the bank, travels a lot and left the toilet seat up….” The End.

  27. Phantasmagoria says:

    It’s a bit of a vicious cycle though, isn’t it? Average Joe gets mostly ignored by women in his 20’s, reaches his 30’s and he’s already jaded but can now pull the new generation of 20’s… proceeds to pump and dump which makes those young women jaded which in turn jades more men and so on and so forth.

    It’s sad, really.

    Has anyone counted the number of times the article says “A woman in her 30s expects more”?
