We’ve all been to a corporate seminar that warned us as such.The result is that we as men have been successfully conditioned to leave women the hell alone.Given the sheer abundance of videos and images of whatever kind of woman you’d like buck naked and having sex online—and the on-demand availability of it, for free—have we as guys really just become immune to anything less?
Please read this other post before commenting to gain clarity on my gender-neutral position on human behavior.] —– A while back I was on a coaching call with a woman who happens to be smart, successful and beautiful. Granted, knowing how “approach anxiety” has a death grip on most mortal men, it’s not even like I was expecting to witness guys stopping bikini-clad hotties and getting their numbers.
We were actively discussing creative ways she might encourage the kind of man she deserves to introduce himself, start a conversation and sweep her off of her feet. The odds of seeing a jaguar in the wild in Florida are probably greater than that.
These people weren’t just not noticing each other, they weren’t even trying.
They weren’t even tuned in to the “hottie radar” frequency.
And probably before that as well.” But instead I paused. Now, I know what you might be thinking, but give me some credit here. Anyone who’s smoother than, say, Steve Urkel knows the value of waiting until about four or five seconds after you pass a woman on the street to take a look back at her.
The question wasn’t a mere throwaway…some miscellaneous rant from a woman who couldn’t understand why she couldn’t even catch a man looking, let alone get him to approach her. And since I was on a road trip and passing through South Carolina, Georgia and Florida, I decided to do somewhat of a field study. And yes, most of us as guys know that it’s better when food shopping to perpetrate like you forgot something in the same aisle that hottie is on, just so you can justify backtracking to verify how sexy she really is.Likewise, every #MGTOW battle cry and every stat you guys use to drive your confirmation bias has already been brought up and respectfully responded to (most of which several times).Going forward, I’ll only be approving well-articulated comments that add something new to the conversation.Add it all up and it could very well be that we’re all being brainwashed into flat-out ignoring people in real life. I made sure to make this a blog post instead of a regular newsletter because I really, seriously would love to hear your opinion.And I want to hear from both men and women on this.So nobody is suggesting we revert to real, genuine sexual harassment. In my completely random opinion—which is pure conjecture, mind you—I can think of at least three factors that may be conspiring here.
