"So man/I has to offer a woman many things - being more strong than her, being the authority in the relationship, offering her security... But what does a woman offer him/me, really ?"
This is why I talk about realising your own worth.
You have so many things to offer, as a man, that you do not realise as you take them for granted (not you specifically, all men).
A question I ask of women is: what can you offer me that is different from other women?
What makes you different and worth spending my time on?
I also ask these questions to myself.
What does this woman have that will improve my life?
What does this woman have that will degrade my life?
On balance, would it be good for my life to spend time with her?
Ponder on those questions, they will provide many thoughts.
What is opportunity cost?
https://mru.org/dictionary-economics/op ... definition
Opportunity cost refers to the value a person could have received but passed up in pursuit of another option.
This is one of the most fundamental concepts in economics and understanding opportunity cost is crucial to decision-making.
For example, when you dress up like a cow for a free chicken sandwich or wait in a long line to get a $1 sub for a restaurant promotion, you might actually not be getting that great of a deal. That “free” sandwich? Well, even if your cow costume was made with stuff you already had, you still gave up the opportunity to do something else with your time. Same goes for the $1 sandwich. All that time you spent in line cost you the opportunity to do something else – like working, studying, or even playing video games.
Opportunity cost is certainly a useful concept to our everyday lives.
All that time you spent with her, hoping she would welcome your advances at some point, cost you the opportunity to do something else – like finding what you love to do and maximizing your potential, or stepping outside your comfort zone and growing and developing into a better version of yourself.
Also, why would you even want to hook up with someone who turns you down all the time?
By the way, living with her breeds overfamiliarity which makes things even worse.
Not to mention your clinginess.
