Based in part on my recent breakup and also in part of a book I'm reading, I pose this question: Do you want to be your SO's priority? I just picked up a book called "the Way of the Superior Man" (http://www.amazon.com/Way-Superior-...=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1272602819&sr=8-1) and there's a chapter called "She Doesn't Want to Be Your Priority" or something like that. In fairness, I haven't read the book yet. I've heard from many people that women don't actually want to be your #1 priority, that they are attracted to you because of the things you do, like the fact that you're dedicated to whatever it is you do (I guess women call this "ambition") but if they were to become your #1 priority, they would lose that attraction for you because they don't want you to base your life around them. That makes perfect sense to me, but it also sounds retarded. It almost sounds like PUA/game theory vs. non-PUA/game theory. Personally, in a serious LTR, I expect to be the #1 priority in my SO's life. For example, this means if you get offered your dream job across the country, you either don't take it (because staying with me is more important), or we decide together that we'll move there (because "us" is more important). I can only imagine that changing if I were to have kids, at which point I hear they become your #1 priority. Discuss. Please note the poll says "in a serious LTR." Obviously by definition if it's casual you don't give a shit. In fact, I wouldn't want a girl I was dating casually to make me her priority. That'd be weird.
