Hey, why ya gottta pick on Tony?
Why should women prefer one particular fashion style over another? If fashion is important, go with what's in style, that is what will get women's attention.
Oh don't get me wrong, Tony's style is sharp. A good blend of Mad Men and contemporary class. I was meaning more his particular brand of 'courtship.'
Regarding chastisement, certainly I don't mean the normal interpersonal relations, which are by nature awkward. Rather I am posing the question, is there a sort of an across the board exodus from marriage and is it more or less the same in traditional communities, despite our efforts?
Has it ever occurred to you that maybe it's not them, it's you? Maybe girls go "ice cold" when you show interest not because they're "game playing" but really aren't interested?
Returning to the above, when I play the Tony DiNozzo game, it is a very different outcome. So yeah, while it is 'me' in a sense, from personal experience I can say that there appears to be a strong tendancy behind that silk veil that likes it more when it appears Mr. is a player. It might sound cynical, however emperical evidence and a dispassionate assessment, I tend to agree more with Vetus.
What I'm driving at is that without a real structure supporting courtship (e.g., parish events, patriarchy, families knowing each other, people showing dedication to their state in life, etc.), results are not going to stand out even in traditional communities.
