What is normally seen in the Pakistani society and even in a few of the western societies is that woman investing incredible time of their lives in looking attractive. Few do that for their own selves while majority do that to attract men. Why do women need to attract men and be selected? Why can’t they be the one who could be selecting?  Women should be choosers instead of beggars. Why settle for anything less than one deserve? Why women do not convince others of their worth? Why don’t they mind settling themselves for the lowest bidder? Questions like these have always intrigued me.  To answer these questions one needs to scrutinize the dynamics of the woman’s relationship patterns.

Most of the women consider relationships as their need.  What compels women towards a relationship is the fear of being alone. It is due to this reason women rush into a relationship and gets so much caught up with their infatuation with that phase that they start fantasizing about perfect life with the perfect PRINCE CHARMING. Therefore they consider their so called “pseudo-intimacy” as genuine closeness and attachment. At the advent of the relationship, generally women over estimate the qualities possessed by their men and constantly avoid the drawbacks.
