Does anyone know any of the tricks a male who is trying to mistreat a female uses?
Pick up lines,
Bad behavoir tricks and
ways of making women think one thing when they are doing or being the opposite.
There is an entire movement...no wait, that word is too noble...."cult" is more like it, of the "pick up artist".
Google it, you'll see what I mean. Was doing some keyword research this morning and came across it all.
It's an entire community of men who are devoted to "the game" - picking up women using a series of(often amazingly complicated) tactics, strategies and "tricks" to manipulate their way into the lives (pants?) of their quarry.
I'm all for casual sex, but the implicit assumptions that this community propagates - both about women and the world in general - kind of nauseate me.
Personally, I can't stand the guys that buy into this stuff, or the people that create it.
My biggest criticism of it is that it dehumanises women - or the people who are the object of it - by simplifying them into some sort of device or object that can be hacked, tricked, or otherwise fooled in to "giving in."
What the hell happened to just being yourself - being nice, putting yourself out there and being confident in who you are?
Women are human beings for f*cks sake...I don't get why this stuff is popular, or the mindset of people who buy into it. If you want to connect with others, then how about being honest, open and putting yourself out there...there's no secret code or technique that's going to get you into the lost temple, indiana jones style.
So, to answer your question: yes, there are "tricks" - i've seen people do them, and in a fair wold, they wouldn't work. Unfortuntely though, sometimes being able to detect insecurity in the mind of another is enough to do the job.
But no, it shouldn't be that way.
Predatory men can find women easily and once heard that anti-social socio-paths are brilliant at manipulation.
thanks appreciate your comments and would love more insights if anyone has any!!

Why is it men don't pick up on subtle hints from women?They do, but they ignore them? They don't really listen? They don't care? Or women really have to be straight forward at the risk of injuring some of men's feelings, which usually women are trying to avoid by giving the subtle hints?

Why do men hurt the person they love? If they love a woman why they do crazy things?I have a good relationship with this man and he just admit that he was having an affair that he wants to continue seing that person. I never see this coming since everything was so great with us. We never have a big...

I am a woman, a heterosexual woman, and I must admit, the people I most love and admire are women. It's a weird thing. I was rooting so hard for Ellen DeGeneres and her quite vocal and brave announcement of her engagement to her female lover. I am also a Christian, in the best...

I had the same problem with an ex, and I'm a guy. Then again I've been accused of being distant and aloof. They will miss the concern, whether they perceive it as manic and insecure or not, when it's gone. Trust me, I did (though because I'm quintessentially male, I'd be loathe to admit it). I...

According to young turks, a new line of sexy lingerie is being mass produced specifically for men that want to wear them. It's also interesting to note that the company making the undergarments are saying that over 90 percent of their customers are actually STRAIGHT aka they're mostly...
