I've noticed that whenever I speak with women besides my wife, I almost instinctually mention my wife, and it's a real conversation stopper (at least among the unmarried ones). Why don't women take interest in her? Are they simply envious of her?
Yes, because he's been vetted.
But why do you say "For really messed up women"? It seems most women are this way (or are most women "really messed up"?), because of the current adultery culture.
I was invisble before marriage and am invisible after marriage. There probably is something about a man who is "taken" but I have not experienced it.As soon as the women back in America learned I was eventually planning to move to the Philippines to be with my lady there, I got vastly more attention from them. And this happened from women of all grades of moral quality. I think it is simply built into women, especially single women, to be at some level interested in men who have already been vetted and embraced by other women. And as we know, women are very competitive with each other.
These women never sexually propositioned me, but they would seek me out and engage in long conversations, telling me how lucky she was to have me. And they would say it was too bad they did not get to me first! Lol I knew of this female behavior, though I had never experienced it so strongly firsthand. These were middle aged women on the hunt. I had known some of them for years.
