Let me give you an example. He's a good guy with a job, but unfortunately he lives with his mother. Girrrl, I can work with that. Or maybe he just got laid off from his job, but he has his own place and no kids. Girrrl, that's do-able. Okay, here's another one. He has four kids who live with baby momma, but he has a job and he's great in bed. Girrrrl, I'll take that any day! Okay, so that's basically the 60/40 rule.
Certainly there are flaws to every rule. An obvious one is that you're settling and eventually falling short in receiving what you truly want. Another flaw is the eventual discovery that he has other issues (like a baby on the way or he frequently goes to the clubs on the weekend); but hey, there's always something that you don't know about any partner.
So is the 60/40 rule the key for women settling into relationships? Well, 'settling' is the key word here so I guess it can't be hurtful. Men, however, are different types of creatures. We'll take three 33 scores, two 50 scores, or give away our soul in search for that perfect 100. So, I suppose that since men standards are all over the place, a woman's usage of a dating model when searching for a mate can't be a too bad of thing, right? Of course not.
Go get 'em girl!
