When looking for a mate, being one's self is not going to guarantee landing "the prize", but if you feel good about yourself, the odds of attracting a suitable partner get much better.
Scripts are a key component of the branch of social psychology known as transactional analysis (TA), which no one talks about anymore.
Sex should be equal - two people wanting to be intimate with each other. To that I say...'Don't give away the salami for free'. "Why do I have to buy the cow if I am getting the milk for free? "Why do I have to buy the BULL if I am getting the beef for free? To that I say...'Don't give away the salami for free'. "Why do I have to buy the cow if I am getting the milk for free? "Why do I have to buy the BULL if I am getting the beef for free?
" You can live your life as you choose but you wouldn't get anywhere near this beef.
In a nutshell, in TA scripts are different than you've got them -- they result from longterm persistent low level programming by the parent of the opposite sex. (This model goes back to before the disintegration of the two-parent family began.) So a mother will tend to script a son to be like his maternal grandfather, possibly emphasizing his good qualities and excising his bad ones, depending on the mother's relationship with her father and her adult perspective.
This is quite different from "role model" concepts of early development which emphasize the same-sex parent. One implication for men is that they should choose woman as mothers whose father they like, because their sons are going to resemble him in a lot of ways.
Women just need to be upfront, what men hate more than anything is to be deceived.
