Male Psychology in all Species
She is taking care of a dog for her friend. Buddy is an older, small, dog. He was depressed and would not eat for the first two days with his family gone. He did not like her because she was some stranger in the house. Then I showed up at the door and he was excited to meet me. We became better pals than he and her were. Then Buddy figured out that I was there for her and not him. At that discovery, Buddy decided to like her and he stopped liking me so much. He started giving her non-stop attention and started ignoring me. Now Buddy and I are both after the same gal even though he did not even care about her until I showed up. But now he wants her too.
It reminds me of a girl that I grew up knowing at home. I always had a crush on the her, but it seemed I was the only one who did. No one else was after her. Then a super cool guy decided that he liked the girl and started dating her. That verified her and then after they broke up everyone wanted her.
Buddy the dog is ‘everyone’ too.
Apparently that psychological pattern has no attachment to a specific species and is prone to crossing through them.
