    Like it doesn't make them higher in the social hierarchy if you have a girlfriend :confused: It depends what you are like as a person in my opinion.

    Having a mate shows survival of the fittest as your genes can be spread of to future generations in a biological point of view. I guess its translated to our views of social superiority these days.

    Because often it is a goal that they've been striving for for all of their life and then they finally achieve it and are like "hoo-rah".

    I think pretty much all goals are only a means to the greater end of morality and happiness.

    But girls aren't like trophies or anything :confused: If it makes them feel happier then fair enough, but having one just to show off/because of the prestige value isn't right in my eyes.

    Because they're immature lol.

    It's easy to get A girlfriend. Not easy to find someone you actually want to be your girlfriend though.

    They aren't using the girl as a trophy in and of itself... But if your goal as a kid was to get a GF then a girl that is your GF becomes a trophy.

    I'm certainly not endorsing such an immature outlook in life but that's just why they do it. Ridiculous I know.
