I know that many of you are reading this and are surprised that I would post this on a dating site but I feel that this is the best way to get my thoughts viewed by both men and women, poor or rich to discuss the inside truth of society. I want men to understand the demanding expectations society puts on women. I want to help women realize they are not alone in this callous society and advise them about their choices.
“If I were shabby no one would have me: A woman is asked out as much for her clothes as for herself. The clothes are the background, the frame, if you like: they don’t make success, but they are apart of it. We are expected to be pretty and well dressed till we drop- and if we can’t keep it up alone, we have to go into partnership (p. 12).” Society expects you to make yourself presentable for a male. The better dressed you are, the better off you are to find a wealthy man. If you can no longer keep up with dressing to impress, society suggests it is time to go into a partnership so that he can keep you looking fabulous while also making him look good by being his arm candy. However, be cautious of men who may mistake you for an object rather than a decoration.
