The Male Rating System

While not necessarily New Age in nature, Samantha has noticed a lot of clients asking questions about their potential beaus lately and she thought this refreshing change might be just what was needed to help our female Realm members keep things in perspective regarding their male paramours. Enjoy! -David -

Believe it or not, if you go into forums on web sites that are devoted to the subject of how to pick up girls, you will find people posting messages about something that is called the mating rating system. Reading one of these forums is kind of a rude wake up call if you ever thought that men "rated" us on such qualities as humor, intelligence or charm. Instead this rating system, which in a state of constant debate seems to be based on leg length, the size of your lips, how high your cheek bones are and whether or not you have big breasts.

The Male Rating system finds its origins in the movie"10" starring Dudley Moore and Bo Derek. This was a romantic comedy that was made in the seventies that featured the adventures of a neurotic alcoholic who was looking for a woman who he considered to be a perfect Ten on his personal rating scale. He finally finds her in the person of Bo Derek, who is six feet tall, has long blonde hair, full lips, icy blue eyes, legs that go on forever, a tiny waist and a very vacuous smile.

My opinion is that if men are going to rate us, there is no reason why we can't develop our own system to rate men. However because men are more sex oriented and women are more relationship oriented our rating system is going to be a little more sophisticated. It also won't be as racially BIASED as the male rating system, which seems to prefer the Aryan ideal of the Nordic Queen.

To find out how your male rates on our rating system answer the following questions by choosing an option below. Choose only one option. You can add up points as you go along. Be forewarned you will never find another rating system anywhere that is as honest and forthright as this one. It is based on very realistic criteria that could bring your head down out of the clouds and could really make you think twice about who it is you are going out with.

Which of the following actors in a movie does he remind you of the most?

Al Pacino in Scarface 1 point Matt Damon in "The Talented Mr. Ripley." 2 points Mickey Rourke in "Nine and a Half Weeks" 3 points Micheal Douglas in "Fatal Attraction" 4 points Jack Nicholson in "As Good As It Gets." 5 points Owen Wilson in "Zoolander" 6 ponts Adam Sandler in the "Wedding Singer" 7 points Tom Hanks in "Castaway" 8 points Kevin Costner in "Field of Dreams" 9 points Will Smith in "Independence Day" 10 points

Pick the one action that he has done MOST OFTEN to you:

Slapped or hurt you even accidentally 1 point Humiliated you in public 2 points Called you a name in private 3 points Made fun of your career 4 points Prevented you from going out on your own 5 points Displayed jealousy over your ex 6 points Lent you money 7 points Bought you a box of candy 8 points Brought you flowers 9 points Made a meal for you 10 points

Now add up your points. You should get a double-digit figure. Move the decimal point one digit over to the right so that you have a rating out of ten. For instance if your man's rating is 79 then he is not a Perfect 10 he is a 7.9.

My theory that is that if the mans rating is 6.9 or lower than the relationship is not likely to last very long. If it is 5.0 or below, you should drop him a look for your own "Perfect Ten".
