Like the loyal Duckman you are, you begin to walk her way reciting all the sonnets you have written about her in your head, and simultaneously thinking of something to say to make her smile. You are so lost in thought; you haven’t even noticed the handsome fellow standing next to your moon goddess. He’s the reason she is calling you over. Duckman meet Prince Charming. he is the guy your moon goddess will be fawning over for the next few months, and probably the next guy who will cause her to come crying on your shoulder when he breaks her heart. You shake his hand, knowing in your heart you would rather punch him in the face, and once again your dream girl has managed to rip out your heart. If this is an all too familiar story, you are suffering from Duckman Syndrome.
Duckman Syndrome is the illness many guys suffer from, which makes them clueless when it comes to winning the affections of a beautiful woman. It is also more commonly referred to as low self-worth. The reason why Duckman has such a hard time winning his love’s heart is because he puts her up on a pedestal. She becomes this unreachable goal and he can’t imagine ever being good enough to be with her. This is an act of self-loathing. Self-loathing has never been an attractive quality, and when it’s your most dominant trait, women will more likely feel sorry for you than want to go on a date with you.
There is a cure for Duckman Syndrome, but it’s an uphill battle. In order to stop being a Duckman you have to find qualities in yourself you like. The thing that separates you from Prince Charming is, Prince Charming knows he has something to offer the ladies. Whether it’s his good looks, his impressive career, or his fancy car, Prince Charming knows he’s a real catch. Self-confidence is very attractive to women, and it is the only known cure for Duckman Syndrome. If you want to stop being a Duckman once and for all, you need to look in the mirror and see the things that make you special. Think about the things you enjoy doing, and start doing those things more. Do whatever it takes to stop thinking about the girl you are obsessing over, and focus on yourself. Once you start doing this, you will learn to love yourself more, and even better, people will start to love you, maybe even the girl of your dreams.
