Ladder dating theory

While this choice is a subconscious decision one must be aware that this process does occur.

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.

FRIENDSHIP LADDEROnce a male has been put onto the friend ladder his chances of transferring over to the lover ladder become very unlikely.

It is possible for him to become better friends with the female therefore advancing towards the top of the friend ladder, but as the male advances towards the top of the friend ladder the gap between the friend ladder and the lover ladder grows larger.

The property of these two ladder classifications that should be clear is the fact that they are two separate classifications with little to no overlap.


The main factor that determines what ladder a male is classified into is attraction(2).

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.
