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?
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?
The stock trade in any self-help e-book purchase is to tap into the reader’s insecurities and promise you have the long-sought-after answer.She’s been reading him for longer than me, so I’ll let her do the heavy lifting of distilling his advice: One of my friends suggested I register at his website.Since then, I’ve been getting extremely annoying emails about how to “CATCH and KEEP” a man, like he’s a freakin’ trout or something. Don’t sleep with a guy “too soon” (time frame not included–so just guess) 2.Let the quirkyalone version of this conversation begin in the comments. Join us and have your first tangasm in Buenos Aires. 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.The sickest thing is that for a moment I even considered typing my credit card address, until I awoke from the hallucination and realized it would be hell to get him to stop charging me money.His real name is David De Angelo, and once I had the wherewithal to do a search-binge on him, I found numerous consumer complaints from women who claimed that he wouldn’t stop charging them after they asked to unsubscribe.CBN is a global ministry committed to preparing the nations of the world for the coming of Jesus Christ through mass media.Using television and the Internet, CBN is proclaiming the Good News in 149 countries and territories, with programs and content in 67 languages.
