To further emphasise Emotional Intelligence; a number of men have learned that they are judged by women in relation to the quality of the woman on their arm.
If they enter a place with a fantastic woman, other women will see them as handsome/rich/desirable.
Women are far more friendly and interested in them, then were they to enter with a plain woman or alone.
As these men are aware of this fact, they will often hire an escort. This is not for sexual purposes, this is to attract other women.
By appearing with an attractive woman, other women are interested.
Once he has ‘passed’ the first ‘assessment’ he is much more likely to be able to date one of those other women than if he entered alone.
