The truth of the matter is that "pulling" is hard work. Conversation designed to seduce, in some cases researching the likes and dislikes of the woman (or man) you want to pull, the reality of often bad or indifferent civilian sex, and then the whole headache of disengaging when you discover (as is often the case) that the two of you find one another deeply irritating, with the other half of this unhappy temporary pairing sometimes turning out to be a real cling-on (or even Klingon). A phone call to a trusted and reliable WG is, for many of us, a much better bet, and often enough cheaper in terms of money, energy and time. Not only that but I've found that I've really got to like some (though not all) of the WGs I've got to know as NSA acquaintances, and our meetings to be really enjoyable over and above the sex. I've done the whole "pulling" thing in the past and I found that it just wore me out most of the time; physically, mentally and sometimes emotionally. If someone's intent on getting into a serious relationship with someone they've decided would make a good partner and have properly thought it through, that's altogether another thing and I wouldn't presume to tell others the pros and cons of finding someone for their particular situation who might turn out to be a soul mate. (Yes, it does happen to some people.) But just "pulling" to get your end away, as many do, that's too much headache for me. I'd rather just hand over the spondulis for my monkey loving and be done.
