Then why do so many women date losers?
Ugh, you reeeeeeally got me there :)
Does he speak from his own experience?
Or do you think that the women who date losers do it as a point of rebellion against their parents?
Do you think that it may be low self esteem?
But remember, unless you win at everything 100% of the time, then you are a loser. If you do win 100% of the time, either you are cheating and/or you have not been challenged.
Heh. Speaking seriously for a moment, in my present life as a teacher (past life was a military career) I know many single or divorced mature female teachers who talk about all the loser men in their lives. Good ones are apparently very hard to find. And I teach high school and get to see every year some of the best and brightest young ladies dating some of the worst of the young men, the 'bad boy' types, sometimes precisely in rebellion against parents. The 'bad boy' syndrome is still a big thing in high school. The smart kids -- male and female -- who are going to be successful 20 years down the road, are usually not the most popular kids, though there are exceptions.
As for my own wife of 46 years, she sometimes tells me she is not totally unhappy with her choice, even though it included moving from place to place in the US and around the world for half our marriage, including five years in (West) Germany, though other times she tells me men are only good for three things, two of which are lifting heavy objects and reaching things in high places.
In gaming I find I have an affinity for certain factions in certain situations, but I tend to play a mix of losers and winners. For example, I always play the Germans against the Soviets in WWII East Front games. But I always play the US against the Germans, except in full war in Europe strategic games where I will play either side. I always play the US against the Japanese. And so on.
Edit -- We loved our five years in Germany. It was beautiful. We still keep in contact with the family we rented two rooms from in our first stay in Germany right after we got married, 1974-75. They treated us so nice. And we got to travel through much of Europe, that is, the parts that were not part of the Warsaw Pact at the time.
I am sure that Germany was so nice back then, I bet the bier was great.
Seek peace but keep your gun handy.
I'm not a complete idiot, some parts are missing!
