If it's a question you ask directly instead of learning naturally then it's a red flag.

Yeah, it's a kind of behaviour that is tied to some off putting types of personalities

Because this mindset shows a self-centered look on relationships. That you don't care about a person him/herself, but just what they can give you. When you actually become mature enough for a long-term relationship, your mindset goes from "me" and "take", to "us" and "give". If you need to ask this question, stay single.

people who are offended by it generally bring nothing to the table. once in a relatively you should give 100% but there's nothing wrong with figuring out what thier 100% will look like before committing i would say the average two x user is not relationship material

The couple times I've visited 2x there was nothing but bitching and complaining about literally everything. It's like the female redpill, no thank you.

Never min, I know and understand why women tend to have unrealistic high standards to a certain extent. And also what those unrealistic standards tend to be.

In your example Patrick brings absolutely nothing to the table though so what gives him the right to ask that question to someone else?

by Anonymous 1 month ago

Wouldn't you like to know that from the outset instead of wasting your time only to find out he has nothing to offer? Maybe by asking what he brings to the table?

In the example Patrick wasn't asking the question. He was showing you what bringing nothing to the table looks like and is likely not attractive to you.

People who are uncomfortable asking what they're going to bring to the relationship are showing their own red flags. Relationships are transactional as well as romance. I'm not going to open my life to someone who isn't going to be a partner and just wants to add burden in the name of a relationship. I also really really REALLY like being single. So I feel it's alright to ask what someone is going to add to change that.

Because what right do you have to ask her to try and justify her worth to you? If you don't know what she brings to the table just by getting to know her then you're an idiot.

What you fail to mention is that Patrick is jobless because he sold his multi billion dollar company. He lives in a basement because he unfortunately has a sun allergy (way to discriminate my guy) and he smokes weed because it helps alleviate the pain endured from going out helping the less fortunate, which unfortunately requires going out in the aforementioned sun. Others do the housework because he pays for a maid (lucky him I guess) Be more like Patrick.

Yeah it's a great guy. All you said is true but i didn't write it cause he was a bit embarrassed. Too humble.

Your main problem was being on twoxchromosomes lol. What were you expecting? Rational people?

The reason it is criticized over there is that it is usually asked by misogynists who still think that most women don't work (over 70% of women work full time).
