Building off of the previous post on the masculinity post. In many “men’s discussions” which ever that involves getting money or building muscles and fitness, it’s all part of “game” in pulling women. As we all know, the individuals that seeks the most validation from women are gamers/PUAs. In many of those “men” discussions, “game” seems to become the core of masculinity in our culture today.
I have noticed similar sentiments in myself, that when I don’t get validation from women I instinctive feel inadequate, and when I do get validation from women I feel good from it.
So my final question here is, do men have inherent desire to seek validation from women?
