Since the beginning of time men and women have had played different roles in the master scheme of the shape of evolution. Men from their part have been mostly the hunter in the family. They have been the one going out and find not only food for their survival, but also they have been responsible to find a mate, as part of their accountability for survival. Women from their part have been the gatherer . They have been responsible for the care and sustainment of the family, i.e. taking care of the kids and working their way around to maintain a healthy environment in the place in which the family live together.
Nowadays, because of the way the evolution has brought us to live and the rules and expectations of the society in which we live. Both men and women have certain freedom that they take; however, they still have certain needs. Even though, in today’s environment women have the freedom to go around and play the hunter role in the family, i.e. go and work for the sustainment of the family. And it is meekly acceptable in today’s society that men can play the part of the gatherer. This situation it is not well taken by most women today.
Have you ever heard the terms, “couch-potato,” or “Mr. Mom?” Do you really actually believe that most people in society will accept these terms honorably, heroic or manly? Now more than ever, you can see most women claim their part as the gatherer. Because they believe that their righteous place for them in the core of the family is to be the gatherer. That is why, when you asked most women today, what they would look for in their ideal mate, out of the back they say “security!” Ms. Malama, form Haleiwa, Hawaii; in her Associated Content article titled “What a girl wants in a man: The Top 7 on Her Check List”, backs me up on this. The second item on her “Top 7 Thins a Girl wants in a Man” is security! She is not the only one who actually wants this attribute in a man; go into the Orlando’s CraigList.org . One of the most visited cities in the United States, and see it yourself.
Loves equals to security in most women looking for a long term relationship in today’s society. If a man is unable to provide security to a woman in a long term relationship; that man is doom to fail in that relationship, it’s just a matter of time. That is why I believe there is a little bit of “Gold Digging” in most women in today’s society.
