    Is it true that women end up wanting men other women want?

      Sometimes, but in my case I would rater have someone of my own instead of someone that's already with somebody else. I don't like sharing, and I don't want to risk being confronted by somebody.

      Sometimes, but I doubt they do it on purpose. I think it's more because there's a very prevalent stereotype of the "perfect guy" and when a woman sees another guy treat his girlfriend like she's his world...well, I imagine she (the other woman) would dream of being treated just as well; thus, the reason why she ends up wanting a man that other women want.

      No. Women find Men who are already taken more attractive than those who are not. Why? Because, it's a forbidden fruit, sort of thing. They want what they cannot have. lol

        That is a very general all-inclusive statement and I doubt that it applies to most.
        (I want the one I have.)

          See!  You too want a man who is already taken!

            Yeah, but it was ultimately his choice.

              oh please, you had him at 'Hi, I'm a Hubber"

              That line works every time!

                Wish I had known that 49 years ago when we got engaged.

          Women who are taken Rochelle usually have no need to stray, unless problems. wink

          I simply pointed out that women are attracted to guys who are already taken and why. tongue

            Just because Eve supposedly went for the 'forbidden fruit', doesn't mean that most women do. I think that view is condescending. big_smile

              I'm sure from your perspective it is condescending to a degree.

              However, as a man, who has been taken, I can tell you that I've been hit on more when I am in a relationship versus not being in one. So, that's my basis for saying. tongue

      Logically speaking, a woman doesn't want a man no woman wants

    When there are many women around few men yes this sort of things happen.  It boost the male ego!!

    I suppose some women do end up wanting men that other women want. There is something of a fierce culture of rivalry and competition in female culture that is harsh and hard to understand. It's not always nice or flattering for a fella when several women are fighting for him.

    I think that it's true for most girls, but also some get annoyed by it and are completely opposite.

    I think it's cheap to flirt or go after someone elses partner. If he's availabel and everyone else wants him well then let them have him.

    Most likely if several women are interested, the man will choose the best looking woman.

    I guess there are plenty of women who think this way but most find that the man is either not worth it or not leaving home

    Consider the alternative. Would you want a man nobody else wanted? (Some women would actually say, "Yes!" to this question).

    If you find yourself in a competition for a man, step back and let her go after him. If she's too aggressive, he will end up rejecting her and coming to you.
    I am not making this up!
