Man figured out pretty early in the dating game that bonking his lady fair over the head with a club was not the best way to insure that his love interest would return his affections. In fact that method did not work out too well at all.
So man learned to work diligently to seduce his lady into standing by his side and women have loved this method of courtship ever since.
Since virtually the dawn of time courtship, flirtation, and seduction are the tools that man has used in his quest to secure a mate.
Why women continue to be enchanted by man's attempts to entice them into an intimate love encounter can seem quite bewildering but it is a simple fact of relationships that women love being courted by men.
It all Goes Back to the Stereotypical Images of Men and Women
There are a few reasons as to why women love being chased, pampered, preened and teased into a relationship. The largest factor perhaps being that of the stereotypical role figure that men and women have endured over the ages.
Women are typically the keeper of the family, chaste and virtuous, they ensure that the family remains intact through stability. Women have been taught that they must be honorable and respectable until her marriage union while men have been traditionally encouraged to sow the wild oats before they settle down to their domestic lives.
It is the strength of these old ideals and teachings that even today still influence women seeking matrimony and encourage her to not want to give up her virtue too easily.
Women are often looked down on if they bed their lover too quickly so being seduced by a man allows her to maintain a chaste image while still being able to fulfill her desires. In theory it is only when a woman is seduced to the point that it is beyond her power to refuse the male's magnetic sexual powers that she succumbs and become immoral.
The seduction courtship ritual takes away the pressure of feeling guilty for her actions. Of course this scenario no longer fits in within modern concepts but the rituals and their basis for reasoning remains. Many women still do not want to give up their virtuous image by participating in a mans lustful wishes too easily as she may risk loosing some degree of attractiveness to her suitor.
Survival of the Fittest?
Having a man actively pursue her as his love interest may have its roots nestled deep within the survival of the fittest theory.
In keeping with this theory the most worthy creatures would be the most likely to succeed in their efforts to mate.The woman that this male selects to mate with is chosen from all women as the one most worthy of seducing.
The attention can be very flattering. The harder he works to garner her affections then the more desirable or distinct she seems compared to the other available females.
He also fits in with this platform in that if he withstands the tests of time and is diligent enough in his efforts to woo her then he will be found worthy of her affections and she will indeed mate with him.
What makes a man worthy of becoming her mate involves many factors and she will look for a multitude of qualities in the men who pursue her affections. Those deemed not to have the attributes she seeks will be let known that they don't stand much chance while those she deems as suitable will be given further opportunities to prove their worthiness.
A Matter of Seductiveness or Vanity?
Women are still falling for the same old lines and rituals that have been used by men for centuries. Not only are they falling for them but they are literally loving every minute of the experience.
Courtship and seduction are very important aspects of acquiring a mate. It all still comes down to the one simple fact that women love to be courted by men.
Women love to feel attractive and having a man do everything in his power to acquire her affections makes her feel absolutely beautiful. Feeling desirable is very flattering. It lets a woman know that she possesses qualities and attributes of value.
The more that men flutter and flaunt themselves for her affections then the more attractive that she can perceive herself as being. Everyone loves to feel that they are of value, well beauty is something that woman have been taught is a desirable female attribute and it is one that most woman still strive to achieve. Men have shown over time that they definitely have an eye for attractive women.
Having a man work at courting her allows a woman to know that she has succeeded in her quest to be beautiful. She is desirable, she is attractive, she is sexy and he desires her. The harder that he tries to seduce her the more positive that she feels about her self image. Of course there is a fine line drawn in the sand when the chase can be perceived as stalking.
If she is sending you negative signals then perhaps consider this one a loss, be polite, and move on. They'll be another lady who will respond positively to your courteous advances.
