busting my arse
At what age do women start appreciating guys for more than whether they are "fun" or not?
I'm 26 and typically date girls in the 20-29 range. So far it seems like all girls care about is whether the guy is "fun" or not. I've seen this even with a close female friend of mine who is 29. She broke up with a truly great guy who had a lot going for him to be with this doofus just because he was a bit more "exciting." Nevermind the guy she broke up with had a better career, more money, was more experienced in life, less dramatic and lower maintenance, and was better liked by pretty much everyone.

I see this sort of stuff with myself too. I've been working my arse off the last 7 years and have really built my way up so far, gained a ton of life experience, etc, and I'm still working my way up, yet girls don't seem to appreciate any of it. I have no problem attracting girls, but they tend to get bored after a bit since I'm very career oriented and make that my first priority in life. They don't understand why I would rather work late and save the day for my company and make connections instead of cutting out early and getting drunk instead. It seems very immature and short-sighted to me.

At what age do women start to appreciate guys for the hard work they've put in and where they're at in life? 30?
