I dunno, my experience with monkey branchers is more like:
i am niceTwo ways to look at that.
One is I was sooo bad that not only did she dump me but she dumped the whole male race.
The other way to look at it is no matter how great a man is, he still cant be a chick so there really wasn’t anything to work with there.
I’ve been monkey branched a few times over the years.The thought of being in a relationship with someone who is monkey branching stresses me out. Especially if your going along and think everything is fine. Ah this thread is making me paranoid lol.
Yes. Her social media friends lists is where you will find her backup guys.Along the same lines, I've seen it mentioned here that it is common for a happily married woman to have theoretical backup options, or at least some sort of game plan of who she would reach out to if a divorce occured. (Monkey branching pre-planning essentially)
Is there truth to this?
That's certainly food for thought. I've never understood people who can't be alone for even 24 hours. I certainly know they exist because I have friends that way.Gender doesn’t matter. There are people who do not like to be alone. So if they are unhappy in their relationship but don’t want to be alone, they meet other potential people behind their partners back and when it’s safe to leave (a guaranteed next partner), they do.
Some people are black and white, they are happy or unhappy in a relationship. A lot of people are gray. Things could be better, they could be worse, I can make a life with this person if I HAVE to and no one better comes alone. That type of thing.
I believe this is generally true.Both men and women branch swing. If there's a meme level of generalized difference, women let go of the old branch faster, while men try and hold onto both branches as long as possible.
Each gender’s strategy is influenced by the other gender’s strategy as well.I think men’s basic hardwiring leans towards polygamy where they will basically try to add another woman into the mix and won’t ditch the previous woman(s) unless they somehow have to. Men can spin plates for years if they are able.
Women’s basic strategy leans more towards hypergamy where they will go with the best they can and discard the previous.
If she secures a bigger, better deal, she’ll dump the previous relationship cold.
