2021.12.05 07:58 pandemicfugue Analysis: When I think hypergamy, I think Christine Quinn from Selling Sunset is an excellent case study.

I’m surprised no one has made a post about her yet. I just wrote an essay about her, so please be warned this is long.
I haven’t finished season 2, but in the episode where I’m at, she’s engaged to a tech entrepreneur who’s retired at 35. Obviously very wealthy, looks wise eh, he’s not that great, but he also seems like a kind person who’s not a rich douchebag.
The show is very entertaining. They skipped over her dating and jumped right into her engagement, but how she met him was she was showing him a house and they dated, and he ended up buying it for them. As I was watching, I was doing a little analysis on Christine.
Career:
Went to fashion school in NY, interned at big fashion, got modelling offers, modelled a little. Ultimately she got her real estate license and works for the Oppenheim group in LA. The cheapest properties they sell are like 3-4 million dollars. Realtors make 6 figure commissions. I don’t know her work ethic, but if she sells 5-6 properties per year, that’s half a million dollars in commission per year, minimum. That’s. Baller. She’s married up but no one can call her a gold digger. Her income is wild. So when she buys expensive bags sneakily when her fiancé/husband is sleeping, that’s cute, not gold diggery.
Looks: She’s a stunner. She’s at the exact right BMI, no bones sticking out, healthy amount of fat/muscle in the right places. I loved all her outfits, so fun. I loved that she was the only one out of all the other girls who had radically different hairstyles everyday. Blow dried hair, braided hair in buns, a really fun ponytail with glittery chains. That last one was my favourite. She’s so interesting to look at. Her forehead is huge and her eyes are rather small for her face, and she has a rather round face, but she’s stunning. She stands out. (At the time of season 2, pre covid).
Personality: This was interesting. In season 1: She’s kind of a bitch at the office to other girls, but I think that stems from competitiveness and insecurity. Someone who’s catty and bitchy to other women for no discernible reason comes across as insecure, even though she tries to pass it off as a facet of her personality. As a side note, being too overly friendly with other women comes across as fake (Chrishell) Just being normal is best. However I also found her bitchiness entertaining. And her jokes were mean but funny. At the end of season 1 I thought she’s cool and funny, but a little bitchy. Being friends with her would be entertaining. She also did have a good heart deep down and a soft spot for her friends and loved ones. In season 2: After her engagement, she tried hard to make up for her bitchiness and tried making amends with people she had misbehaved with previously. She also mentioned being a Christian, being forgiving and asking for forgiveness. It seemed like good relationships were important to her fiancé and she was trying to align herself with those values. She has also tempered her bad behaviour in S2, and tried to act more respectable and mature (I.e not screaming at people at parties). She became a little frivolous and ditzy after her engagement. She was wearing more costumey clothes, like Barbie pink head to toe, and ridic high heels, but I think her man was taking care of her and she was feeling spoiled and loved. I think that’s okay, it’s cute.
What worked for her in her pursuit of hypergamy:

  1. Being absolutely stunning. This wasn’t achieved through surgery. She was literally a model. She had a boob job and fillers or whatever but they don’t take you from a 5 to a 10.
  2. Being a high earner in a field that a) allowed her to elevate herself to a beautiful, dreamy lifestyle and b) allowed her to meet wealthy men on a rolling basis.
  3. During season 2, when she got engaged, she was worth $2 million and her husband was worth $20 million. She married a guy 10 times her net worth, this was a best case scenario, given that she is a 10/10 in looks. If her net worth was $500,000, she could marry a guy worth $5 million. If she’s worth $100K the max she could marry up was a guy with net worth $1 million. There is an upper limit to hypergamy. Your career dictates your net worth, and a good career will propel you in elevated and wealthy social circles, allowing you to cross paths with men of up to ten times your net worth, max, if you’re lucky and gorgeous. Obviously this is just one case, and you need to look at more cases for solid conclusions. But it’s a good indication that having a good education, a good career and being a high earner will help you in hypergamy, as most women are not models. It’s also safe to bet on a degree that will get you a secure, high earning career right out of college, like the post about education was saying the other day.
  4. She wasn’t manipulating anyone into liking her. The proof is in the pudding. She sealed the deal by being a stunner, ambitious, rich, independent, fun, and a catch. Also she’s fiercely loyal, to the point that she ends up creating drama sticking up for a friend who didn’t ask to be defended. After she met her man, she behaved nice, which is the best strategy, like I’ve mentioned before in comments. If the guy is into you, pls don’t ruin it by being negative and manipulative and digging for his mommy issues. I am sure her husband has seen his fair share of beautiful women around, I’m sure they tried to throw themselves at him, or try to sink a hook into him by exploiting him. He likes what he likes, and that’s a complete package in Christine. He probably feels secure that Christine makes her own money, so she looks at him like a man, not ATM.
  5. Also, my theory about true high value provider males proves to be right; they want gorgeous wife, kids, family, peace. This type of HVM is committed quickly, and will be loyal. Christine has had two kids since she’s been married, all of them look genuinely happy. It’s a cute and rich family. Time will tell if they get divorced or not.
Would love to hear thoughts and discussions in the comments.

2021.12.05 07:58 Nirdee Tried Out the Game

The tutorial was so long, and now it seems to want me to play more tutorial AI games. The adventures seem so bland and grindy and the little story bits are kind of cringy.
Anyway, point isn't to complain, just letting you know where I'm coming for my real question--when can I start collecting cards and building decks and playing a CCG? Part of the appeal that made me download was that the game is chill on its collectability and monetization, but right now it feels like it is trying desperately to make me sit through a ton of nonsense. I looked at a guide that said just play through the adventures, but it has been a big turnoff. Any thoughts or advice before I uninstall?

2021.12.05 07:58 Melon1990 Pensions vs Isa for retirement

Hi guys, just after some advice about pensions/ISA.
Long story short, i work for a small family business and they’ve kind of hinted that the contributions hurt the company’s finances so kind of guilted me into putting the minimum into this. Obviously I would have preferred to max this out.
So a few years ago I started a private stocks and shares vanguard pension, and I also have a trading 212 isa.
I’m having a hard time deciding where to put most of my money, tax free in the pension is great but it scares me the thought of my money tied away and if something really bad happened i could end up not being able to pay mortgage but I have 100k in a pension I can’t touch seems crazy.
Also I don’t understand how it’s tax free when you pay in but then you get taxed when you withdraw it? So it’s not truly tax free is it? Apart from the gains you would have made from it being invested for years. I have family members who say pensions are useless and only buy property.
Not entirely sure what I’m asking for here, mainly some pro pension people telling me why I should be paying in more?
Thanks

2021.12.05 07:58 Spurlaut [Question] Do I have to prove validity myself or can I quote other papers?

I am currently writing my master's thesis and conducted a survey using two scales to measure two different constructs. For the reliability, I used Cronbach's Alpha. I used scales from other papers in which the authors have already proven the validity of those scales (those scales actually were used in multiple papers). Do I have to prove the validity again for my data (and how?) or can I just say, that the validity is proven by those other papers and leave it at that?
Thanks!

2021.12.05 07:58 Former-Entertainer67 What should I do when we're on different life paths?

In college, my roommate had it all together - amazing job, relationship, great moral compass etc. Meanwhile, I was trying to scrape by in a soul-crushing low-paying job, had no girlfriend, and was making lots of young 20-something dumb decisions.
It's been a decade and our lives are completely different. I cleaned up my act, went back to school and am now thriving in the corporate world with a very supportive partner by my side. I'm really happy that the other friends in our friend group are also doing really well - married, have kids, stable job, house, etc. On the other hand, my friend quit his job and has been unemployed for months, he self-imploded his long-term relationship, and made some really morally questionable decisions (including cheating on his now-ex). He wants to run his own business but nothing has really happened.
I've tried to be there for him through everything. When he started to make questionable decisions, I would speak up but then got shut down. He won't admit to the cheating or other shady stuff. After I spoke up, he stopped sharing with me what was going on in his life. Now, I rarely hear from him but when I do it's for a favor (mostly because I think he's broke). When we talk, there's always a gloss about how things are great with him. On the phone, he made passive aggressive comments about how the corporate world is for sheep and how I've changed and lost myself. Then he called me the other day, saying that I'm not being a good friend and he wondered if I'd be there for him when things go south (after he ended his most recent relationship). I promised him that I would try harder though I don't know if I have the bandwidth to support this friend. I explained to him that my job was super demanding. My family, gf and close friends are helping me through my job burn out.
When things were going well in his life, he was a super supportive friend. What should I do? Is this friendship worth salvaging? Am I being a jerk? I wish we were best buddies again but I feel like his punching bag sometimes.
