Don't be a door mat!

I had an MSN conversation with a friend about how guys have to treat women nice to get them, but they also shouldn’t be too nice in the wooing process least they get used and taken for granted. The following were some points that I made. Bear in mind that they were typed out at the speed of thought and thus are a bit cynical, a bit sexist and a bit rude. Kinda like me really. Ho ho ho. :mrgreen:

  • u dont have to be an arse, u just have to be surgical. moving on quickly is the key.

    What I wanted to say here was that although you shouldn’t mistreat women or play mind games with them, you have to realise when to cut your losses and move on immediately. No lingering, and no being persistent and all that bullshit.

  • heheh. next time they cry, use our inate male logic and apply it to their irrational emotions. they get pisssy, u leave. then they’d call u the next day and apologise becoz in the light of day, they would realise that u were rite.

    This was about how some women use tears and crying to manipulate men, and how some men are weak against it. When she cries, the man should make his point as logically as possible and then leave it at that. If that doesn’t work, then there’s no point arguing about it because she won’t be listening to what you have to say. If all else fails, you leave her where she is, even if she has to find her own way home. What?! Is that wrong? Don’t be such a schmuck, you’re not even her boyfriend! :P

  • heheh. best thing to do – take everything as superficial. remember the mantra, it’s all a lie until she touches your happy bits.

    I’m not saying all women are like this but the fact is, there are a lot of women who enjoy flirting and would use it to tease the men who they know likes them. Surely, they know; they all do. So why torture the poor guy? As for the guy, there’s only one thing to do: everything she says or do is moot until she decides to have sex with you.

    Though I repeat, you don’t have to be a bastard about it, but don’t just take her word for it. You are entitled to expect her actions to back up her words. If nothing happens beyond mere words, move on.

So to sum up, don’t be a charity and give away 100% of yourself for free. Heck, even charities aren’t that generous. Having said all of the above though, the other way to approach it is this: be nice (to a certain degree) but don’t expect anything in return. It’s the expectations that open you up to being used because you’d gladly accept any small scrappings of attentions or tokens of her affections in return.
