>>98328796>You know I read that dynamic many times when I was young (all of them were written by girls) and it seems like this is some kind of weird teenage fantasy for girls. The boy makes sacrifices for her all the time but he will be lucky if the girl show him some of respect, I never really understood this weird complex but I think that the point is having a dog like boy saying to the girl that he is loyalty and serviceable.
My good man, it's quite simple. You ever hear how girls often complain that they "can't make a man stay?" How you see those clickbait articles that promise to let girls know how to "keep his interest"?
Female sexuality works by finding one, quality mate, and holding on to them. They want to find the best sire and provider for their offspring, it's just that evolution has only left humans with the drive for this, and not the actual desire for the specific thing our brains have evolved to want. So, you get girls who want a handsome, manly man, who proves he can get any girl he wants by being apathetic, but will still be utterly loyal to the girl, because girls also want that, in a kind of weird oxymoron.
Men don't get off easy either. They want to fuck and keep as many girls as possible. If a girl shows actual interest in them, their brain tells them "this girl is already yours, once you got what you want, you can move on to the next one." This leads men to paradoxically want girls who are apathetic to them (for the thrill of the chase), yet are loyal to them.
You get people who deviate from this, because there's always exceptions, but these be the rules evolution has thrusted upon us. It's a wonder humanity has been able to breed all these years.
