Following Elite Daily’s series “Would you Date” for men, it is now time to partake on a new venture and provide a female equivalent of the blockbuster series. Clearly women also need guidance for their perusal of the dating scene, especially concerning opaque social niches that are oftentimes difficult to penetrate for the non-Elite.
Dear ladies, congratulations. You have proven your cognizance and successfully taken the first step to discerning the social patterns of the Elite–possibly even netting a mate from the prestigious group of Elite bachelors that frequent this site.
Disclaimer: This article is solely based on the collective personal experience of women who have been with the aspiring, successful and established. It cannot and should not be applied as a general conclusion of the population at large.
The typical Elite Daily reader is a tech-savvy man of limitless intellect, drawn to this site by a desire to find intellectual and cultural stimuli that can only be satiated by our site. Upon discovering this site, he finds that the information clearly corresponds to his taste and lifestyle.
He is a type A-personality; ambitious in his goals, macho, aggressive and business-oriented. He shows little or no empathy, and is attracted to a materialistic, yet highly fulfilling successful lifestyle. He secretly admires Patrick Bateman, Don Corleone or Ari Gold, yet recognizes that he exceeds the prowess of all three. The Elite man is bound to be seen donning an expensive watch or stopping in for a casual lunch at the Oak Room in NYC, Market in Paris or Scott’s in London.
You’ll note his exquisite taste in women, preferring the runway-model, socialite or daughter of wealthy family friends. In some cases all three.
The iconic Elite man is a natural leader with a “take charge”-attitude. Unsatisfied with complacency, he has an incessant desire to be the breadwinner and will not play second fiddle to anyone. Despite his ego and self assured mindset, he is indeed a kind man and is highly sociable with his male friends, despite lacking a fear of airing his opinions or fighting for his beliefs. Working in prominent fields like banking, finance, law, and corporate business, he dresses in expensive suits for work, and cashmere and jeans for his day off.
You will spot him on the tube heading to Canary Wharf at 7am, taking his Porsche Cayenne out for a spin on a Sunday afternoon or having late dinner with a loud group of friends at Lavo, waving his black card before heading out to a selective nightclub. He high-fives the doormen at the top five clubs in London, New York, St Tropez or L.A before discretely slipping them a 100$ bill.
With the Elite reader, a girl will find herself in a secure environment. Not only does this individual provide financial security, but also takes pride in staying physically fit and strong. His whole air of superiority and strength will unscrupulous suitors that normally disrupt you in the street or at the nightclub. More importantly however, the Elite reader likes to woo his women far beyond the capabilities of the average everyman, especially concerning the financial aspect; trips, meals, rent, and shopping will be taken care of.
He will fly you over to Monaco for your birthday, set you up in a suite with your girlfriends and take care of every expense down to the room-service bill. He will take you to the Boathouse for lunch, a walk along Park avenue and thereafter invite you to his elegantly decorated 2-bedroom apartment overlooking the park, asking you to stay for “as long as you want”. He will send you a Chanel-bag for Valentine’s day and a diamond necklace for your birthday. He is a man’s man; being masculine, he loves helping you with networking, job assignments or picking out the right ski-gear; all with the intention of manifesting how competent he is in every department.
With this guy on your side, your personal stock will increase in more than one way; competing girls will get madly jealous of you and spend every waking hour how you’ve successfully attained such an amazing man. Your other suitors are now forced to regard you at a distance, cursing themselves for not making a move earlier. Obviously your image will benefit as well, being the queen at his well-placed table in nightclubs and restaurants. Your days as a stray-cat, jumping from table to table will finally be over.
Your Elite man will refer to you as a “princess”, “red-carpet girl” and similar, making sure that you feel like one every wake hour, encouraging you to benefit from what he can provide. He shows you off to his friends, and makes sure that his circle knows that you’re “off the market”. Be careful though, these chivalrous acts are not without an agenda…
The Elite reader is a man with a high amount of testosterone; as much as he enjoys the hunt, he is also impatient and will expect intimacy at an early point. In other words, this man wants to see a return on his investment, and the sooner, the better. This can be a trick; making his pursuit for you interesting enough, but giving in just before he gets tired and moves on to one of your girlfriends. Once in a relationship, this man will adore you, but see you as his subordinate. For him, your ideal place is in the household or in a shopping mall.
You are expected to cater to his ego; verbally, sexually and physically. This ranges from giving constant compliments concerning his intellect and masculinity, being generous and gifted in bed, and making sure you always look your best at public events. Beware of jealous girlfriends who will gossip about him to you, portraying him as a bad boy who you’d be “better without”. His buddies, motivated by the stories they’ve been hearing about you and your sexual talents, will circle you as a pack of hungry hyenas, ready to take a bite once the alpha-lion is away. This can cause great stress on your relationship with your Elite man.
Expect little or no emotional support from the Elite reader, this man is not Dan Humphrey or Dr. Phil. He does not understand your emotional outbursts or drama, which will only annoy and confuse him. As he’s a busy man, he will spend most of his time at the office. Waiting up for him with a pouting lip will not lead anywhere, and be prepared that this busy schedule includes weekends sometimes as well.
His work will come before you; he prefers getting paid over getting laid. He’s the man who makes the calls, arguing with him is not to be recommended. The Elite man likes his women smart, but not too smart: he blacks-out if a woman outshines him intellectually. And as a last point: in bed the Elite man will take command, whether you like it or not.
For a successful relationship with this man, you need to outsmart him without him noticing. To catch him, play the innocent but classy damsel in distress and he will come running. Never make it too easy for him; by nature he needs the hunt and knowing that the prey is worth it. Make sure he knows he’s got competition. Refine your bedroom and conversational skills, create an ambiance of desirability around you and act like a lady, and he will be yours to keep. Please be aware that it’ll be some time before he handles you the keys to his apartment or proposes an introduction to his parents. If that ever happens, that is.
