This was going to be a rant...

Journal Entry: Tue Jul 24, 2012, 2:49 AM


Somehow, I ended up on a site called SoSuave.com. It's a dating website, with tips for men to pick up women. Sounds innocuous enough, right?
It is filled with such gems as~:

"How and Why Women Test You
Have you ever called a woman on the phone to set up a date and had her say: "Friday night? Sure. Call me on Friday and we can talk about it..."?
Or have you ever had a woman ask you if you're a player?
Or have you ever asked a woman for her number and had her say "Why don't you give me your number and I'll call YOU"?
Well guess what... you were being tested. At some level, the woman you were dealing with was testing to see how much control she had in the relationship.
The paradox of "testing" is that if you COMPLY with what a woman SEEMS to want, you will usually FAIL the test.
Hey, I never said that it made sense."

"You NEVER want to be in a position of waiting for a woman's call or leaving it up to her to call you. [...] If a woman is uncertain about when she is available, instead of saying, "Call me and let me know" tell her "OK, I will call you by the end of the week and see if you figured your schedule out a little better." Keep the power and control to yourself. You will be much better off and you will come across as a more attractive and confident guy."

On 'The SIlent Pause': "If she says no, for example, to you going out in the next two weeks because her dog died, say nothing but continue looking at her. By responding to her objection you confirm in her mind that you agree with it and take the pressure off her. By saying nothing you show her that you do not accept what she says and expect a different response. In most cases she will come up with a different response from her original one."
Psychological manipulation? SEXAH>

And this asshole www.sosuave.com/quick/tip208.h…
Hypnotising women into dating him? If I had a week I couldn't explain all the things wrong with that.
Also, get a look at the disclaimer at the bottom of the page. It is laughable.

I was about to go on a massive rant filled with capslock and rage at their pathetic understanding, not only of women, but of BASIC HUMAN NATURE (there's that capslock :|)
And then I realised.
It's a dating website, designed to teach men who act like this to be more of an arsehole.
With this sort of advice, it is effectively keeping men like this out of the dating game.
so
good going sosuave.com, and if I ever run into anyone using these techniques, I will know that they have to resort to shit advice on the internet to get a date.
And I will laugh.

It's times like these I wish I could come up with some sort of creative swear for this situation. You know, something Littlepip could be proud of. Because that's how messed up this is.

I find that ShitFuckTittyBalls serves most situations, and rolls off the tongue quite nicely! :)

I'm fairly certain it's just a troll site made to piss off and amuse people. the disclaimer and part about a dog dying was quite a pair of tip offs.

Poe's Law, mate. If you disagree with someone strongly enough, it becomes impossible to recognize their views as having been arrived at logically. In sociology, it's referred to as "the illusion of asymmetric insight".

I don't really care too much about troll bait man. You seem to be more engrossed in the topic since you've taken the time to write large paragraphs proving why you must obviously be correct. <.<

Troll bait? What?

>why you must obviously be correct

That, or I'm defending my reasoning. God forbid I do that.

Troll bait would be trolls, those who enjoy annoying/enraging others, putting out bait, mainly opinions that are largely disagreed with by the general public, in order to illicit anger. Usually it's rather obvious, like when one may see a youtube comment saying "Justin bieber is the best singer ever, led zeppelin and the beatles are shit. Bieber fever 4evar" I suppose this could be regular behavior but I assume you get the point.

Anyways, this looks to be turning to an comment argument that I don't care to partake in. Sorry I became defensive because you called me out on not being objective about something trivial. Ta-ta

So... I'm "troll bait" for disagreeing with someone?

Cool story, bro.
