There's a belief that without any kind
of structured "game" then guys would
be helpless.
Meaning that unless there were guys
teaching other guys how to talk to
girls, date girls and hopefully get laid
with girls...
Now, there's a few things wrong with
this theory.
To be sure, it does indeed help to
know a little bit of what to say.
And it helps A LOT to have a group of
guys who have been there to share
your experiences with, so you can do
better next t...
But often times, when guys talk about
"game" they are talking way beyond
the basics of mutual male support.
Firstly, lets consider guys a hundred
years ago.
Obviously, they got laid, as there are
many more people here than now
than there were then.
And they generally stayed in long
lasting relationships, as the divorce
rates back then were much lower than
they are now.
And many guys will point to this as the
very reason we need game.
Girls are so low quality these days,
they'll say, that guys need some kind
of super ninja tactics.
But that may be making the problem
worse.
Now, let's define the problem as not
being able to meet quality girls for
quality relationships.
How does game help this? Generally
speaking, any kind game is only a short
term strategy.
It's very, very hard to employ any kind
of social technology over the long
term.
Even politicians know this.
That's why they are always super
vague when they speak.
They know that if they are specific on
any particular issue, they'll likely
contradict themselves later on.
So if you're using any kind of
technology to get girls interested in
you, it's definitely going to work in the
short term.
But short term flings are made from
much different ingredients than long
term relationships.
Short term flings are based on short
term interests.
They necessarily overlook elements of
compatibility and mutually shared
experiences.
On the other hand, long term
relationships are based on mutual
physical interest, but only as an
opening ingredient.
For any person to commit to another
person, think of what's involved.
A lot of time, money, energy, and most
importantly, opportunity cost.
For every hour you're expecting that
other person to spend with you, they
CAN'T spend it doing anything else.
So you're basically asking them to
decide that the time they spend with
you is the very BEST choice they can
make.
Now, think about this.
For anybody to spend time with
somebody, at expense of all else,
they'd better be getting their needs
met. They better be ...
They better be with somebody that is
got the same basic world views and
life plans.
Otherwise, you're asking for
somebody without any world views,
without any life plans, and without any
idea of what they w...
Somebody that will voluntarily chuck
everything just to be with you.
Sure, game works in the short term.
But it may be keeping you from finding
that special lady that will only show
her true self to you over a natural
course of...
Without the social manipulation of any
kind of game.
Something to consider.
