Now behind closed doors, you just might get away with this sort of mentality with the guys and you might even impress a few niave, silly women who could care less about being compared to a sports car. However, test driving young women like cars is going to cost you mentally, physically, and spiritually. Just like a car, sooner or later you and they will break down. Hurt feelings, broke bank accounts, troubled minds, STDs, unsupportive family members, unwanted children, etc. Hearts left on the side of the road like bumpers, blown out tires, broken glass, etc. How much time does one really have to play immature games with immature women?
The truth is men like this don't care about women, rather they enjoy test driving them. You probably know a few old players in the family. Young, sexy, and immature women can be fun, exciting, and interesting at first, but in time they get old, unattractive, boring, and oftentimes don't work out, because they realize, "What am I doing with this old guy?"
Keeping with the cars and women comparison for just a little longer, if you don't get a tune up for an automobile over time, what might happen? Problems and more problems. The warning lights inside the dash are clicking on and off and the car is becoming more of an issue than you can handle. Wasn't it just a few weeks ago that you got something fixed on it? Like what irresponsible men do with their beloved aging cars, they run their old ladies into the ground and then do the same with young women.
It's unfortunate men and women have to learn the hard way before recognizing that their personal views, when it comes to relationships along with how they treat one another, has a lot to do with why they are often unhappy and unsatisfied. With each new person that comes into one's life, it becomes increasingly difficult to get needs met. After awhile one gets exhausted with the mind games and eventually settles down sometimes with a decent human being, but most often with the one you should have, could have stayed away from.
A mature man is called that for a reason, he is no longer like a boy or young man childish in his ways. However, if he is still thinking of women like cars, it is only a matter of time, that he will trade the poor girl in for a new model.
