I wonder if you're not interpreting Dj's comments correctly because you don't really share his motivations? Personally, without wanting to put words in his mouth, I second "girls are -EV", but I do so wanting to get my life somewhat in order so I can date with an eye toward's the future. This has taken a lot longer than I expected and I may have taken a different course if I'd known, but "thrill of the hunt" has never been motivation for me.



It's no fun to hunt with a broken gun :)

Its no fun hunting if your not a hunter.

When hunting a little camouflage dose't hurt. Your not changing the fact your a human, your just covering your bright pink shirt, in order to get a little closer. Or you may end up having to settle for some road kill. If you wait long enough a prize winner may just walk into your back yard.

I think you would have to read all of his posts to get a good sense for his attitude, when it comes to chicks, dating, relationships or whatever, not just this one thread. I have no doubt he really would like to find a nice girl(or little boy:)

I was 55... and that was six years ago. My son taught me how to play Texas Hold'em. Had no clue how it was played till then.

I'm going off topic but I'm gonna put it this way. It's gonna take years of therapy to fix my women problems. Luckily my Obamacare will kick in in a few weeks so by the time his second term is up, bam I am fixed.

Don't be yourself, if you want to get laid.

+100

Axel, you're a wise man. That's some of the best advice I've seen. I don't know why people always tell young guys to "be yourself". If that worked, then no guy would ever have trouble getting women.

Even though you're a self-proclaimed "geek", the 1% thing sure helps a lot with women...haha

I played 5-stud first and last card down as first poker when I was 12. 7-stud the year after that. I liked the former as a 4-flush beat a pair... allowing some room to bluff.
Some people need to reimagine their thinking.

Yes and no. Around here pretty much everyone is in the 1%. I still have a small 1-bedroom apartment...

Axel, can I ask how old you are?

I would have agreed with you when I was in my early-mid 20's. But, some time around my late 20's or early 30's (probably closer to early 30's) things changed. At some point around there, it becomes more important to be successful than to be "cool". Or maybe what is "cool" changes. In any case, I'm a geek (a math geek, at that). I don't hide it. I love video games (geeky RPGs, not "cool" games like COD and Madden). I also love board games (geeky strategy ones) and puzzles. Again, I don't hide any of this.

On the other hand, as a result of being a geek, I make really good money (let's just say that I'm in "the 1%" and leave it at that). I'm also not douchey about it. I don't flash my money around or try to impress people, but I'm not cheap either. I will take a girl to a nice restaurant and spend a few hundred dollars on dinner (the fact that I like good food helps, here... I'm enjoying it as much as she is). I'm honest, polite, and I treat people well. I have no trouble getting women. In fact it is just the opposite -- I meet so many attractive women and like so many of them that it's hard to decide when to "take the plunge" and get into a real relationship because I don't want to shut the other ones out.

The bottom line is, if you just want to get laid and never see the woman again, fine, show her what she wants to see and put on whatever act you want, if you think it's necessary. But if you're actually looking for a relationship (even a short-term one), drop the act. Pretending to be someone that you're not is a lot of work, and honestly is not worth it.

Alternative: if you have money, and you just want to get laid, just get a hooker. It's easier than putting on an act, no more expensive than buying dinner and drinks, and it will work every time. There are some people who find it immoral but I don't get that -- if you care about morality, it certainly seems more moral than pretending to be someone you're not, and pretending that you like someone, just to get laid. At least with the hooker everyone is being honest and getting exactly what they want out of the deal.



You know, I went right past this post the other day when I answered Axel's, and he had made a good point. But Axiom is exactly right, and it does depend on what you want, either as a guy or a girl in a relationship. And I'll go so far as to say that who Axiom presents himself as, confident, generous, and a gentleman who likes women as people as well as, well, ass, attracts women in droves, certainly me and all my good friends would be thrilled to have a chance with a guy who thinks like he does. Definitely what I was talking about in discussing what women want.

But again, it matters what you want as well. Ass, the hunt, arm candy, ditzy dependence, good company, opposites attract, soulmate, like interests...all legit if that's what the guy is looking for, and all those women are out there. But if you keep striking out with a particular type of girl or relationship...well, what those problems have in common is you. Figure out what you really want, then look for just that in a woman, keeping some flexibility about non-dealbreaker issues. And be yourself, honest in who you are and what you want, and the right girl(s) will find you and encourage you. At least that's what I think works.

Possibly older women want a nice guy, after years of being alone or in some horrible relationships and they get desperate. I know plenty of very nice guys out there that cant get a girl no matter how hard they try. In reality, a normal girl only wants a nice guy if, he looks like George Clooney. Girl's born in the 80's or later, don't seem to be looking for a nice guy who's a provider. The most common thing you hear from a girl is, I want a guy who makes me laugh (BULLSHIT). They want a guy that looks good and has swag, money and then makes her laugh. Probably in that order. I have set up a few well kept, decent, honest nice friends, with girls I know, under the premise, I just cant find a good man. Only to hear from her, "He's just to nice", WTF?

I always hear girls say they want a nice guy who is romantic, charming, bla bla bla. The problem is they want all the other stuff Looks, Money, He makes me laugh the list goes on. Now they want this perfect guy.

LOL! I'm still curious about hearing the full Louie story. ;)

It would sound better in person, from me anyways. So, ill try to make it short. A group of us were discussing a play at the plaza, DJ was half listening as usual, I think he has Gambling A.D.D or something, he cant seem to sit still, great kid even a "NICE GUY" I think he only caught part of the conversation and heard key words. I'm sure he was dreaming of $5 Royals

Because this promo was at the plaza and Louie has a show there, It brought up a discussion between me and a few others. I told them some stories about Louie. The stories dealt with Louie liking legal teen guys.

We made a deal with DJ for him to play the promotion. A few days later DJ shows up for what should have been a long session and starts playing.

Not sure exactly how it went down. But I few hrs later, I get word that Dj was no longer playing. I think he texted me some creepy guy was staring at him and his leg or something. At this point I think Dj started to remember, bits and pieces of the Louie story. Eventually Dj was so unsettled, he ran out the door. I meet up with Dj and he said the guy looked a bit like Louie but was unsure. Louie had a baseball cap on and was not as large as he appears on TV, and he really didn't look like what you would imagine. I went over to the Plaza to play VP with my GF and sure enough, it was Louie Anderson. After that Dj would sneak around and make sure Louie was not around before he started playing.

Side note: I joke about Louie and the young guys thing, I'ts more of a joke. I know that there has been some situations that raised eyebrows.

Louie Anderson was extremely nice and friendly to me and my GF , very nice, chatty and humble. I think we talked to him for about 2 hrs while playing. He was more interested in knowing about us as people, he offered good relationship advice and some wisdom.
