An article discussing how "evil guys" get more girls: BadGuysGetGirls , left by an anonymous commenter, had this to say:
The study found that those who scored higher on the dark triad personality traits* tended to have more partners and more desire for short-term relationships, Jonason reported at the Human Behavior and Evolution Society meeting in Kyoto, Japan, earlier this month. But the correlation only held in males.
James Bond epitomises this set of traits, Jonason says. "He's clearly disagreeable, very extroverted and likes trying new things - killing people, new women." Just as Bond seduces woman after woman, people with dark triad traits may be more successful with a quantity-style or shotgun approach to reproduction, even if they don't stick around for parenting. "The strategy seems to have worked. We still have these traits," Jonason says
Shortly after reading this article, I saw the latest trailer for the new James Bond film, QuantumOfSolace.
After nearly wetting myself from the incredible trailer, I regrouped and came to my own conclusion regarding women, my "shotgun" approach to sex and my somewhat roguish behavior. The conclusion?
I enjoy my actions, I love the thrill of the hunt and the locked stare of two people in the night looking for nothing but the pressing of skin on skin. I love taking new girls to Belle Isle (Yes, I did it again) and holding them against the rocks in some hidden crevice while I make moves that would be deemed inappropiate for most guys and most first dates. I like being that rogue, that guy that a girl hates but ends up secretly liking.
I find that as the days pass, I care less and less about what people think about me or my actions. My actions get bolder, I get wiser and I start to figure out who I am. Is this my end game? To live life on my terms, and not on societies opinions or boring descriptions of how life "really" should be lived? Possibly. Will this change? Sure it will eventually, but theres no urgency on my part. Why should there be? I'm happy.
Oh and James Bond's role in this blog post? Other than my extreme excitement about the new film, he epitomizes who I want to be sometimes (If I had money, a license to kill, more suits and less t-shirts, and a cell phone that wasn't made in 1997.)
* The "dark triad" personality traits referred to above are as follows: The self-obsession of narcissism; the impulsive, thrill-seeking and callous behaviour of psychopaths; and the deceitful and exploitative nature of Machiavellianism. Ummm, check, check and double check.
