Fact or Fallacy: A man will always want what he can't have.
Fallacy, there are plenty of men who are very happy with what they have - (women too for that matter). A healthy relationship takes two people who not only love, but also respect each other and who work to build each other up. When that happens, it is perfectly possible to be fully content with what one has.
It's no more true than saying a woman will always want she can't have.
Having said that it's human nature to desire things we (do not) have. That's what motivates us to go to work and earn money. Dreams and goals are all about (wanting) things. Sometimes we get them and other times we don't. Most people don't want things they "can't have" but very often they want things they "don't have".
There was a time where it was almost acceptable for a man to pursue a woman who showed little or no interest in him.
He'd send her flowers, write her poems, compliment her on her clothes, offer to assist her in anyway with the hope that one day she would agree to go out with him. You would hear about long-term married couples where the woman rejected her husband's suggestions of going out numerous times prior to saying "yes".
It was thought to be "romantic" or "playing hard to get". Today those men would be considered "stalkers" or be sued for "sexual harassment."
The vast majority of men today want women to meet them half way or at least show a "sign" that there is a mutual interest. If they see she has no interest whatsoever they tend not to pursue them. (In the U.S.)
I got your point. Well, what do you think about this idea that men tend to value women more if they exert too much effort just to have her.
Gender has little to do with it. Some people love to compete or strive to win/earn a person's love. You see this with girls who chase after the "bad boy" He keeps them guessing about his feelings and knowing other girls want him increase his value!
Fact, but this goes for both sexes. There is something attractive about wanting something that you can't have. There is a possibility that this is a safety net in some way. If you want something you can't have and never get it, there is no risk of having to make a commitment.
