So my original thought reading this was, who hurt you? I mean, hell hath no fury like a women scorned. That's the realest shit ever wrote. Then, I took a look back and realized it was written by a Paul Hudson. I'm going to take a shot in the dark and assume that Paul is a man. I guess you never know these days, but let's have at it.
Originally I was going to go through all ten and tear them to shreds. However, unlike Paul, I am not a social leper. Ain't nobody got time for dat. The real question is where did Paul get his data? I think Mr. Hudson has been friend zoned one too many times. That's really the only way he could develop this many theories. He had to have been talking to far too many women. I guess he could be gay, but this article reeks of jealousy. I'm going straight and very small sexual background. He 100% developed one or two of these theories standing alone in a bar while watching a potential target get picked up.
He does make some good points. Yes, men do tease women upon first meeting them. No, it's not to devalue them. Jesus Christ, men have been picking on women since they were in 4th grade dude. You think 10 year old Bob was putting that much thought into talking to girls. I was just trying not to piss myself. Yes, we compliment women. Somehow complimenting a woman hurts their ego. Really went down a strange path with that one. My brain couldn't follow. I think that means I don't do that. Yes, we act disinterested. We do it because it is a red flag to women if we are TOO interested. Maybe try talking to a girl once in your life and you'll learn that Paul. Can't learn the in's and out's if you are standing in the corner with your dick in your hand.
That's the extent of him being right, and it is for all the wrong reasons. I am sure these things do happen. To categorize it under the generalization 'men' is lunacy. The article should be called '10 Ways Sociopaths Try To Get You In The Sac'. Maybe I am just speaking for me, but he literally said men do like 35+ different things to get in a woman's pants. When I am at the bar my brain is only computing 2 things. Booze and butts. No more, no less. I'm not talking to her ugly friend to try to get her attention. I'm not blatantly insulting her. I don't talk to one girl then run across the room and talk to another. Well, maybe I do if the first conversation hits a lull. But it's certainly not for leverage.
I feel bad for all women who read this. This article makes us seem so much smarter than we are. If I could go to a bar and pull off all of these things in one night I would be a pussy messiah. Yeah, sometimes men are dicks to women. Not like total dicks, mostly just dick-ish. Women LOVE that. Years of research have gone into my claims. Go to a bar and be a complete gentleman to a woman and you will lose their attention faster than I lose my keys after a sip of whiskey.
There are two things written in this article that are possibly the most preposterous things I have ever read. 'He'll buy you drinks or bring you to his table'. Uhhh. Okay bro. try flirting with a woman in a bar without buying a drink. It's a virtually impossible task. Not paying for her next drink is the easiest way to insult a woman. Why do you think they leave the house on Fridays? If women had to buy all their drinks they wouldn't go out nearly as much. Annnnnd now, for the kicker of all kickers……
'Men can't increase their value from conversation alone'
I admit men are kind of scummy. OF COURSE we can increase our value off conversation alone. Literally the entire one night stand scene is based on that very premise. You think women will let a man in between their legs on the first night based on the God's honest truth? Fuck.And.No. Men lie, women lie. It's a social contract we make as human beings. People don't leave the bar together after 2 hours of knowing each other having a complete picture of who their counterpart is. We both accept that we have a glorified view of who the other person is. That is based COMPLETELY off conversation Pauly boy. Now take a step off the ledge and get yourself a prostitute. You're making our gender's job much, much harder.
P.S. Even if he is right( he's not). Way to sell us down the river bro. Have a little respect for the game.
