I'm sure this has been posted before but couldn't find it in search. In this context, lets ignore the reasoning of wanting to start a family and have kids. Why would you, personally, want an LTR? Knowing the possibility of hypergamy, disrespect, and the constant power struggle?
Is it better to look at it from a utility standpoint? What you can get out of her, instead of being enamored WITH her?
I'm trying to figure out if it's worth it for me. Maybe she gives you great sex, you do fun things together, buys you things, and have good conversation. Is that enough to put up with the downsides in a relationship? I would find it hard to fully trust anyone at this point, even if I was the most alpha Chad the world over.
Based on what I've read, the ideal woman that most people here would consider LTR-worthy sound just like unicorns, which we know don't exist. At some point in an LTR, you're going to experience slight disrespect and manipulation, even if you don't realize it and you think you're the top alpha dog. You can't really trust women, so you're having to swallow your pride somewhat.
What's the healthiest way to look at LTRs if you're red pilled? How do you justify it?
