After having run this site for over 10 years and seeing/collecting all kinds of strategies and tidbits of knowledge, I’d been looking for a way to put all my own knowledge together into a cohesive structure.
What I’d seen with a lot of the pickup and seduction knowledge out there is a large amount of useful material but trying to piece everything together into a concise format for myself has been daunting.
Because of that, was slowly trying to build my own structure and trying to find materials that are a best fit for that kind of learning.
I first read comments from David De Angelo on Cliff’s List and thought “Hey, here are things that I can do without spending a lot of time researching and practicing complicated stuff.” Soon after David put Double Your Dating together, I took a look at it and read through the whole thing and what I read was gold.
I am fascinated by how mystified we men and women seem to be with each other.
So what is the antidote–ar the antidate to the dating breakdown in communication?
I discussed this with one female roommate so far, who was equally horrified and livid when she read his stuff, and one male friend, who said, talk to your male friends. Be sure to sign up for my mailing list and join me in Buenos Aires to learn about the quirkyalone approach to life and relationships through tango in the Quirky Tango Adventure.
They’re much more similar in mindset to the men you are trying to date. Is there any validity to his advice and worldview, or is this just garbage?
It’s just that reading this stereotypical garbage, combined with the shitty and mystifying ways that some men act, make me and other women feel confused and despairing. It’s a very profitable enterprise to continually charge people .97 a month for emails, especially when you don’t honor their requests to unsubscribe.
4) The preying on women’s insecurities then taking their credit card numbers for recurring charges. Why am I writing about this and even giving this bozo any attention? He seems more powerful than the authors of the Rules, because he’s a man, and supposedly offers an inside view.
Have you ever gotten sucked into something that you were also ashamed to read? I was listlessly checking my email when I noticed a text ad that I must have seen more than 10,000 times. The worst mistake a woman can make is not seeking help.
“How to catch and keep a man.” Those ads are as oddly ubiquitous as the text link ads for Acai Berry Wonder Diets, but I always assumed that ads with links like “Why Men Withdraw and What to Do About It” were for women who are more pathetic and malleable than me. Because men are so hard to understand, and Christian Carter has spent years reading every relationship book ever published, and he has thought deeply about the psychology of men and women when they are dating. So sign up and give him your credit card for his e-book at a price of .97 and his emails (interviews with relationship and dating experts) at a monthly charge of .97.
In this case, it’s about tapping into woman’s insecurities and confusion over male behavior, with the promise of understanding of learning what’s going on behind the scenes of a man’s mind. “I don’t want a serious relationship right now.” WHAT HE REALLY MEANS IS… without trying to change me or turning our relationship into MORE WORK and LESS FUN than I can have on my own.” Does this make sense?
