The great debate: are all women crazy? Flash Girl vs. an athlete…
The other night I ran into a male acquaintance of mine (not literally, I just saw him) – and he began telling me that he and his girlfriend, 20 years his junior, recently broke up, and he’s now thoroughly convinced that ALL women are crazy.
I agreed in the sense that we can all be crazy – but the difference between a woman being “crazy” and legitimately insane is if she can admit that her behavior can sometimes border on crazy. If so then she’s actually pretty normal. Sometimes estrogen is like an acid trip, combined with love induced anger and even the most chill woman can lose her cool.
But there’s also a difference between a woman being crazy, and just not putting up with a man’s crap.
Now the man I speak of is a playboy, a man of affluence and status that has a roster of girlfriends that can rival A-Rod’s. I’m not saying that to name-drop, as I’m not going to drop his name, but rather to make a point. After he insisted that her calling a lot when he fell off the grid was crazy, rather than taking into account that he’s trying to still be a playboy and yet have a girlfriend at his convenience like she’s Siri on his iPhone.
I just told him he’s never going to find a woman that is sane by his standards if he doesn’t quit acting like a d-bag.
If you are testing our trust, then you will make us feel insecure. And inevitably when you make a woman feel insecure, you also inhibit her rationality. Because just know an insecure woman does better spy work than the FBI, and she’ll do it like it’s her job, thus like it’s normal…just saying.
Flash Girl: 1, Athlete: 0
Hi Flash Girl, So I have this girl who I’ve been talking to a little. I met her on an online dating site, and she gave me her number and snapchat ID so we have texted and sent a few pictures back and forth. She used to live in Wisconsin and moved to Myrtle Beach where I live recently. She has seems pretty standoffish since she got here but promises we will meet. What can I do to keep her attention to where she will be dying to meet me instead of the other way around?
Dear [redacted] aka Snapchat Love Master 411,
Step 1: Make sure she’s real.
You don’t want to get Manti Te’o-ed, or now “Chris Birdman Anderson’ed”.
Seriously, you may want to make sure she’s not catfish fishing at the beach there my anonymous buddy. Because you say you’re “talking” to a woman – well, I may sound old school here, but texting and Snapchat don’t exactly count as talking.
My suggestion is this: in a joking way say (or type rather as I imagine it will be via text), “I’m beginning to think you’re fake, Lennay Kekua lol smiley face, or whatever emoticon you want to use.
Otherwise just be funny and lighthearted in your communication, and be sure to talk about how much fun you have, and she’ll feel enticed to join. Sound busy in a good way (playing vs. working all the time), and perhaps even invite her to dinner at Medieval Times or shag dancing on the Boardwalk. Offer to be her friendly Myrtle Beach tour guide. If she keeps making excuses then assume she’s either blowing you off or catfishing you…I’d assume catfishing because it will feel better than getting rejected. Just don’t take the bait!
I think the real people here that need dating advice are all these athletes that seem to get caught up in Internet hoaxes. I know of at least 2 other off-the-record incidents, and can’t even imagine how many more there are that haven’t been intercepted by the press. Learn from the guy in the above scenario – when you’re rich and famous you have an advantage, you don’t have to download your girlfriends – you can have real life girlfriends, several of them apparently…they’re called groupies, and Kardashians.
