I will never forget an experiment on women I conducted a few years ago. I had always been a very nice, polite, fairly soft-spoken person when it came to females. I kept my head and face shaved nice and clean, presented myself in an up-standing manor. But I couldn’t get a girlfriend to save my life. OH, I had plenty of “friends”…but no girlfriend. I would listen to female complaints about men, and tried to be the opposite of everything that they claimed to dislike. Funny thing was; they type of guys females complained about, were the very ones that attracted them. My final year of high school I moved to a different State, and I was determined to change my image. I stayed with my cousin who was everything that I wasn’t. ..A thug. I grew out my hair, had it braided, drove my cousin’s car, wore baggy cloths, talked with slang, and became as obnoxious as it was possible for me to be. Women swarmed in my direction. Lots of times I didn’t even have to approach them; they came to me. I enjoyed the attention, but at the same time it really saddened me that in order for women to even notice me, I had to pretend to be a thug. Even ‘til this day…I notice a lot of women who say that they want a certain type of man. But then you look at the person who they are with…and he is nothing like what they claim they want. * * * I had one such young lady have the nerve to tell me that all men are dogs, and that there is no such thing as a “good man”. I replied that if there are indeed no good men left in the world, a lot of it has to do with society. The truth of the matter is that men (strait men) want to be what is attractive to women…and I’m really REALLY not trying to seem sexist, but it seems more times than not that “good guys” get overlooked. More and more young men are catching on to this much earlier than I did. I’m older now, long grown out of that thuggish stage of my life. I see women who get disrespected in the worse way, and they always go back for more.Then they hold a grudge against all men. Women, why is that? I guarantee that if men saw that being a “good guy” paid off, then there would be a hell of a lot more of them.
