Last Things That Desperate Guys do to Impress Girls They Want to Date

Desperate guys are tough

You really have to hand it to desperate guys.

You can search high, low, and all across the world, but you will never find a more-determined person than a desperate guy who is looking for a girlriend. I have met a few in my time, and I am testing myself here and I find that I am telling you the truth. These guys are some of the mentally-toughest, thick-skinned, and goal-oriented guys in the world.

Guys like these should belong to the Army Rangers, but they don't. Actually I don't know whom or what makes them so desperate to find female companionship. They do not travel to Tibet to be trained by a monk who is master of his own self, desires, and life. And it is certainly not continually-losing or experiencing defeat that toughens them. Outside of some mysterious cosmic power, I give up the task of trying to fgure out what makes desperate guys so desperate.

Desperate guys are a breed apart

I might add that judging by the desperate guys I have seen in my day, the majority of these guys were not unattractive, dirty, filthy-talking, disrespectful to girls, or out of shape. Quite the contrary. These guys were good looking, well-dressed and all that any girl would want. But when it came time to ask the girl of their choice out, they were turned-down flatter than a two-buck tire sold out the back of the store.

And when "the axe fell on their necks that were on the block," did they cry? No. Did they curse? No. Did they stomp off mumbling nasty things about the girl? No. This was a mystery that only the great Charlie Chan would unravel, for I was confused at what I witnessed.

This guy is JUST a pitiful case guy, not a Desperate man. How do we know this? Just look. His body language says that he is giving up and getting lost

Let's look at something I witnessed:

This is an example of conversation that I happen to hear between one of these desperate guys and a decent-looking brunette:

DESPERATE GUY: "My, my, 'Deborah,' you are sure looking good tonight."

DEBORAH: "Gee, thank you, 'Dexter!"

DESPERATE GUY: "I was wondering if you were not busy, say next weekend . . .

DEBORAH: "No, 'Dexter.' I have plans. And besides, now do not get hurt, but you are not my type."

DESPERATE GUY: "Uhh, gee. Well, okay. I am not one to pressure anyone. Be good."

And 'Dexter' walked away with his head held high. Not like me when I was rejected so many times, would not walk, but crawl away with what little self-dignity I had left--praying that not many of my classmates had witnesses the disaster I had survived.

As comedian, Jerry Seinfeld was prone to say, "It's a mystery, I tell you. It's a mystery."

You don't count-out a desperate guy

And what really made me respect and admire these guys was as much as their mental and emotional strength to survive the coldest rejection by a pretty girl, it was their "last line of offense." I say this because it is the truth.

These desperate guys were far from fools. They did have one last "trick up their sleeve," and they were not ashamed to use them. This, my friends, was more-amazing that any space exhibition ever presented by the Von Braun Space Center, Huntsville, Al.

The things these desperate guys would do without shame, to hopefully have one final chance to impress the cold-hearted girl into going out with them was at the foot of amazing. It was like these guys had studied with Gandhi in the art of self-control and presenting their final displays of affection that no girl could resist.

Just some of these amazing things were

  • Letting the pretty girl watch them change a tire and explaining it this way: "I know you are not going out with me, but in case you are ever alone, being able to change a tire will prove valuable to you." And the girl would watch with eyes welded to every move the humble-hearted, desperate guy made.
  • Showing the girl the easiest way to peel a red potato. Sometimes, to be cute, the girl would say, "My mom has already shown me this," to which the desperate guy would say, "But was her way, with all respect, the EASIEST way?"
  • Teaching the girl how to correctly feed beef cattle. Every time the girl would smile, giggle and try to make pets out of the cattle. The pretty girl was falling right into the desperate guy's hands.
  • The desperate guy would sit the girl down and show her how to correctly listen to someone talk. The girl would soon realize that this desperate guy was of a special breed.
  • The desperate guy, if he were musically-gifted, would take great patience in teaching the girl three of the easiest chords to make on guitar. By now, she was regretting how she turned him down for a date.
  • If the pretty girl were a country girl a heart, the desperate guy could teach her how to bait a fishhook the faster, easy way.
  • And he could also teach her how to pitch a tent, survive by her wits in the woods, both valuable things that all girls should know.
  • The pretty girl could learn from the desperate guy to be assertive and not be intimidated by other girls who think that God made them as a "gift" to the guys around them.

And lastly . . .

  • The pretty girl could let the desperate guy teach her how to handle her own case in a court of law without the high rates of a lawyer.

And this couple, I still cannot believe it, will celebrate their 35th anniversary tomorrow.

Whhaaaatttt?

I knew one desperate guy (too young for me and besides I was already married) who worked in the same office as me. Every time a new girl started work in the office, he would date her. You would see them going out together and then she would leave. He wasn't daunted. He kept asking the next and the next and finally .... one of them stayed and they got married! He just hung in there.

You know, Kenneth, I don't believe he was desperate, I believe "hear over heels in love." There is one thing about life few to any westerners ever consider is everything anyone does is destiny. That is one reason many of the social things I do, from an intellectual lever, I don't have any desire to do but karma and reincarnation causes us to manifest our destiny. Thus, we have "desperate guys" but manifesting their destiny.

Have fun with that one, my friend.

Oh, the guy in the video is very choosy. Kind of too selective.

Hey, mgt28,

Yepp. I couldn't agree more. Not a comfortable place to be in life.

Thank you for the comment and visit.

The0NatureBoy,

I agree with you. There are some on earth that do not believe in destiny. And you bring that out so clearly. Maybe desperate could be changed to "searchers," those who are forever restless no matter where or how good they have it. Their hearts are always divided on marriage, jobs, etc. Miserable, if you ask me.

The0NatureBoy, my friend, have a peaceful week.

Hi, DreamerMeg,

I literally LOVED your comment. How wise it was of the guy in your office who would not give up. I have been where is or was, and didn't give up, but there are things that I should have hung strong and just felt defeated.

Meg, I appreciate your friendship, writing and following.

In a certain since, I did ask. lol Yes the term should have been "searcher" rather than "desperate."

Back when I was young, I had many days of misery from seeking to be what society wanted me to be, maybe, because I has often said what I wanted my life to be but kept following the mind of tradition until I left my mother at age 19. I then felt like I was doing what I was supposed to be doing, which, seeing what a reoccurring dream meant -- I always had anytime I sincerely asked what was my life's purpose -- made me realize after my new conception I had at that time began living my destiny.

A "not so funny thing" about destiny is, although many people talk about it few really intellectually realize it, they are believing based on a religious or cultural teaching. Another thing about it here in the west, when talking about destiny many say we have a choice because we are not robots when, in fact, that is exactly what we are, living robots with control of our lives but without the knowledge of how we obtained it.

Most of the past 8+ years my life, Kenneth, has been peaceful even under what is considered "hard times," so, from my heart and not just the head, I return that wish/prayer to you.

The0NatureBoy,

I got to hand it to you. Talk about and I.Q., you have a high I.Q. and I know that you are grateful for it.

I on the other hand, was always lower on the intellectual gauge than my peers; slower to catch-on to the subjects we studied in school and on and on.

I used to hate myself for these shortcomings, but after losing the same battle over and over, it dawned on me. Even in the larger photo of dimensions inside dimensions, people like myself fit in and that place may not be ready to be revealed.

So I wait. I fight sometimes with myself, but the wisdom from losing has given me the hope that maybe over the next horizon is MY place.

Have yourself a good day.

I intended to have said 38+ years, Kenneth, not just eight. I walked away from civilization in August 1976, 38 years ago, in fulfilling this destiny which is almost at it's apex for this civilization.

I want to wish you a joyous day but not a good one. So long as one uses the judgmental descriptive adjectives like good/evil, pretty/ugly and the like, they continues to eat from the tree of "the knowledge of good and evil" and I would never be able to live so close to nature because I would continue rejecting half of everything. The metaphor of the flaming sword (Genesis 3:24) suggests that those adjectives must be melted into each other and indivisible which will also cut one away from all attachments, the only way to live in the self-reproducing environment or "garden" we call nature.

Joy -- "peace and contentment because of one's understanding" -- to you my brother and friend.

The0NatureBoy,

Thank you for your nice remarks. I have a lot of respect and admiration for you walking away from an established, gut-wrenching civilization, but is it REALLY a civilization? Look at the root word, CIVIL, are we, at large, a civil nation when there are always gang-related murders as well as police-related killings?

We have forsaken, I think, the basic peaceful incentives of respect that we used to have for each other.

And the laws, so-called, are so opaque that the right-minded lawyer can bend it to suit his client.

Anyhow. You have a peaceful night and week.

Kenneth

Bro. Kenneth,

The word civil is only another form of city and they both means "man depending only on other man rather than primarily the self-reproducing environment," according to my findings. From that perspective man are civil when tribal people are more environment dependent than on other man.

Did I tell you I was earning $335 a week and was to be promoted to $600 per week? That's what my concept of the new birth caused me to leave behind without ever looking back or missing it. The excitement of living free of any controls was the challenge I had longed for since childhood and it finally came.

There is no way to bend the Constitution, the supreme law of the US, unless We The People allow them, which is exactly what we did. We allowed lawyers seeking big pay tho deceive us into believing what is written as the Constitution isn't what the ratifiers of it intended but using their being slave owners and wealthy European land owners. If people would pass around my "The U.S. Constitution, The Supreme Law" it wouldn't take long, if the people understand the truth of the term "PREAMBLE" is the intent of the entire document

Anyhow, joy to you throughout the week.

Bro. Elijah

The0NatureBoy,

Thank you for your interesting comment. I think you need to write books for your comments read like the text in a novel. And your life to me is very colorful too.

I have learned a lot since talking to you.

I am getting ready to call it a day here where I live.

I hope that you have a warm and dry place to stay for we in the south are bracing for an ice storm coming Wednesday evening.

Thanks again for your friendship and stay safe.

Not desperate at all, but an interesting hub all the same.
