Question For Women!

If a guy is taken, does that make him more attractive?

If so, why?

Just curious cause it seems like when I'm in a relationship, I get hit on a lot more than I do when I'm single. I still get hit on a lot though.

Hey, Cookie Manwhore!

Well...I'm not sure what it is...I think it's something about wanting what you can't have. When I got hooked up with drgnwolf1969, I had 3 guys ask me out in one day! WTF?? *lol*

BTW, I'll have my cell on tomorrow...I'll probably be in town earlier than I thought!

yes. from personal experience, a guy is absolutely more attractive when he is "taken". gosh, i really can't articulate why that's so. i guess it's kind of like, when someone tells you that you can't have something, it makes you want it even more; sort of a challenge i suppose. hmmm...really i'm trying to figure out the exact reason behind that phenomonom myself.

When I am in relationships, a lot more (very, very, very cute )guys hit on me.

When I'm without boyfriend, no one pays attention to me. Which is the case right now, and has been for the last two years.

Whenever I see a guy that I find attractive he either is:

-attached
-or has no interest in me whatsoever

yea.

Maybe cause when you're in a relationship that makes you more datable. Alright let me try to translate myself. uhm like when people are single you kind don't know what a person would be like in a relationship. So like the idea that you can be in a relationship, and people see how you handle yourself in one may cause people to rethink their doubts and be more open to the idea of dating you.

Does that make any sense?

I honestly never looked at it this way, I don't know why, but yes this seems to be the case with a lot of people. To me people don't necessarily look better because they're taken... I mean if they're available then they don't feel tied down at the moment and you have a better shot of getting with them. haha I dont mean that in a purely sexual sense

Then again, if a guy is taken, then you know that they can be committed, which is a good thing. OK so this has two sides to it *obviously hasn't thought this through...*

its just a human phenomenon,, no one can be expected to explain it properly.
I think i need a 'mock' boyfriend to test if that will attract a real one

I think that's a really good insight, Marina. That's definitely the best explanation I can come up with.

That said, I really can't say I've actively tried to pursue a girl who's taken. Not even hit on more than I would if she was single. Maybe it's respect, maybe it's just that I'm too nice sometimes, but if she's happy in the relationship, then I try to stay out of it. A little harmless flirting is fine, but I'm not comfortable purposefully flirting to create some attraction and take a girl's attention away from her boyfriend. It just seems too dishonest and sneaky for me.

But then, all's fair in love and war...

Switch genders and that's basically the pattern of the past 6 years of my life. Although it's finally starting to change for the better.

It's the thrill of the chase. I personally haven't tried to break anyone up, but some friends of mine are constantly on that mission.
