Some dorky guy who’s been unsuccessful with the ladies decides to study “game theory” and learn how to pick up women.
First … a quick side note here for my female readers. Next time you’re tempted to think men are shallow, just read some stuff on how easy it is for these jerks to pick up women by playing silly tricks on them. Everybody’s shallow.
Anyway, I’m certainly not holding this guy out as some sort of oracle on sexual morality, and I think his lifestyle is creepy. Frankly, I think there should be laws against that sort of behavior — or at least no laws prohibiting fathers, brothers and husbands from dealing with reprobates … appropriately.
Still, there’s an interesting comment buried in this article.
“Going to an American club or bar is torturous compared to these Eastern European venues where girls put out warm vibes without getting their rocks off on rejecting men.”
I’ve never read Cosmo. I’ve never even opened one issue. Ever. But it seems to me the covers often have stories on “how to get him to commit.”
That’s always amused me. It’s like banging yourself in the head and complaining you have a headache. Free milk and a cow comes to mind, of course, but maybe there’s something just a little bit self-destructive about building your sense of self worth in attracting and then rejecting men.
