What a Girl wants, What a Girl needs....

       No, I wasn't humming that Christina Aguilera song. I am in fact talking about the most mind-boggling question - what is it that a girl expects out of a guy?? Seems like there has been a lot of scientific speculation and theories trying to explain the answer. This one just caught my eye. Its referred to as "The Ladder Theory".

This Pie chart has been constructed based on data acquired from extensive field study.
  • Money contributes to about 50 % of the reason for attraction. Money also includes Power because one is often the reason for the other and both the terms are very closely associated. How much money is "more money" also depends. For a 16 year old, a guy who can afford a bike and cell are rich guys. But as women get older, the amount of money that qualifies a guy as rich also increases. Bottom line - chicks dig rich guys.
  • Attraction contributes to 40 % of the reason. Attraction can be further expounded as physical attraction, competition, novelty and others.
       Physical attraction is when a woman mysteriously transforms into a 7th grade retort when she sees a "cute" guy at the club or the lead guitarist of a band. This refers to guys who are handsome or to the muscular hunks that she happens to meet.
       Competition in other words can be stated as disinterest. According to this theory, women love pursuing things that are far from their reach. So, she finds guys who aren't interested in her to be more attractive! Because of the competition for rich guys and even more, rich handsome guys, women tend to gravitate towards "bad" guys - guys devoted to bad music, biker gang, forearm tattoo or marijuana. Also, a healthy a healthy interest in destroying her self-esteem seems to work wonders.
       Novelty. Let's face it, if you're like every other guy who works a normal job and tries to live a good life, you're probably like just about every other guy. Women don't seem to like this. Why would they? Something different is more attractive.  Like someone who does not have to work during the day like most people because they have lots of money from business or selling drugs. Or like someone who has stabbed a man and went to prison for it. 

  •  Other 10 % in the pie chart refers to things that women say they care about, but doesn't really matter. This includes intelligence, sense of humor, honesty, sensitivity etc. 
       Now for the actual Ladder Theory. Women seem to have 2 ladders viz. the Friend's ladder and the Real ladder. When she meets a guy for the first time, a "first impression" of the guy is said to be formed in less than 5minutes. Based on this, she either places the guy on the Friend's ladder or the Real ladder.
       There are levels in the Friend's ladder. In this case, Dallas is a better friend than Joe and so on. The friend's ladder is placed far away from the real ladder. If you're on the friend's ladder, well then that's what you are -  a friend.
       But, people on the real ladder are the ones she's really interested in and there is a higher chance of things working out with these people. The people on the real ladder are usually rich, handsome and the ones that are rich and handsome are definitely on the top of the ladder. If a woman has lost hope in finding such people, she begins placing "the bad guys" on the real ladder.
       If a person on the friend's ladder tries to get serious, then he's attempting to jump to the real ladder and cross the gap. If the woman agrees, well then he's placed on the real ladder. If not, he is pushed down into the abyss below and after weeks of inconvenient looks and meetings, their relationship gradually fades away...
       Each time she meets a new person, she tries to place him on the ladder and she gets serious with guys that are at a higher level than the one she was previously with.

       So much for the ladder theory. I'd surely love to read comments, esp. from the women about this theory.


  1. ha ha... nice one dude... ur effort towards understanding women is commendable... The ladder theory is very interesting...

    But regarding women falling for rich guys, it maybe for a short fling or for her personal motive... But in the long run or a true relationship, it is things like sensitivity,humor, intelligence that stand out, i suppose..

  2. Hmm... Well as far as I can think of, the ladder theory seems to be perfect. From your comment, I can infer that you're in a serious kind of relationship right now. Probably you'll have something more to say once your out of the relationship. Something on the lines of "you were right".. Ha ha.. Nyway, do comment when that day comes too k. :)

  3. lolz... I'll share my personal experiences sometime in person.. :D

    The ladder theory maybe right, but the hierarchy of men on the ladder depends on umpteen factors..

    Women are highly complex creatures, buddy... :)

  4. evn i tot so..women are complex and all tat..but after i read this theory, it seemed to be right. and wats worse, this theory doesn't sound complex, it sounds stupid. and yet, its right!! women still way too complex?? hmm... i doubt.. :P
