Ladder dating theory
In other words, the crux of the theory is that individuals’ most basic needs must be met before they become motivated to achieve higher level needs.The most fundamental and basic four layers of the pyramid contain what Maslow called "deficiency needs" or "d-needs": esteem, friendship and love, security, and physical needs.Each of these individual levels contains a certain amount of internal sensation that must be met in order for an individual to complete their hierarchy. Maslow's classification hierarchy has been revised over time.The original hierarchy states that a lower level must be completely satisfied and fulfilled before moving onto a higher pursuit.
Other outside factors such as a relationship between friends being developed into a friendship merely because of the fact that the female was already involved in a physical/intimate relationship with another male at the time the friendship had begun. TRANSFER FROM THE FRIEND LADDER TO THE LOVER LADDER IS AS CLOSE TO IMPOSSIBLE AS ONE COULD GET.
The lower they are, unfortunately, the less likely we would ever consider pursuing a relationship with them.
If both male and female had one ladder, it would make things infinitely easier!
The ladder represents our willingness to “date” someone.
For instance, the higher someone is on the ladder, the more likely we are to date them.
However, girls have both a friend’s ladder and a “potential” ladder, whereas guys put all their cross gender relationships on the same ladder.
