Hi Chase. Thanks for the article. Very eye opening and it seems totally reasonable. But one thing that yourself and BluBlac59 have in common is that you are good looking guys who can replace a woman if you want to. BluBlac59 said so himself. What about guys on here who have naturally poor fundamentals and are needing to use all of the GC wisdom just to get their first girlfriend and keep her around? Should the guy still take the gamble and risk walking away even though they will be empty threats? Is he instead stuck, as you described, with anything the partner puts on him? Also, it seems like this question is pertinent in any situation where the woman is quite a bit better looking than the man.
