According to Evolutionary Psychology, women like men who are slimy opportunists. They just don’t know they like them, because they cannot reflect personally on anything at all. It has to do with the way their unconscious minds work. Luckily, these unconscious minds are easy to figure out by countless males, especially those whose intellects have been developed to that point of being just a slight cut above the rest of the herd.
But women cannot know how or why they actually make decisions. That’s their limitation. Rather, they only know how to act blindly, and be tricked. It’s in their natures!
But actually, that is all very fine, because women, don’t you know, actually need to be tricked in order for evolution to proceed properly. Evolution rewards those with the slight advantage being tricky and grants them fortunes over and above those of a less Machiavellian ilk. Mating privileges go unto those with powers of manipulation, for it is unto them that is is granted the right to spread their seed.
Women, of course… Hush! (Don’t speak the truth to them — or else the whole of Evolution will be thwarted.)
