THE FIVE TOP REASONS TO DUMP YOUR DATE
Women Don't Lie - Men Don't Listen
Success Coach - Doc Love
I've been following your advice for quite some time now, and I have to say that you really
do know your stuff. I've had more dates in the last three months than I did in the last
three years prior to studying your relationship principles. I always had an abundance of
opportunities with women but just had no clue that I was doing so many different
inappropriate things that were turning all these women off before things even got off the
I'll admit that I have a preference for very beautiful women. Just about every one of the
twenty or so different women that I've gone out with in the last few months have all been
no less than an 8.5 or so on the 1-10 beauty- rating scale. I'm not bragging. Most of them
have been high 9's or 10's. (I guess my ability to pull in the beauties has a lot to do
with the way I look. About once or twice a week, someone I see at the market or on the
street, or wherever, mistakes me for Ben Afflek - I could probably get a job as his
look-alike or stand-in if I wanted to.)
I know that, as you say, the more beautiful a woman is, the more troublesome and high
maintenance she tends to be. Well I'm here to attest to the truth of that. I guess my
problem is that I get these obvious warning signs (or red flags as you call them) from so
many of these women indicating that they are trouble and not long-term relationship
material. Nevertheless, I hang in there rather than dump them at the first warning sign
because I'm so beguiled by their beauty.
My mind seems to tell me something like, "Ok, so this is the third time in a row that
she's shown up more than a half hour late but, well, so what? Look at her. She's a
knockout and she's with ME, right here, right now. And look at all the other women and men
in this restaurant who are looking at me with such envy and respect. Getting all this
admiration and approval kind of makes it all worth it."
But, naturally, after a few more times of the same rude B.S. from her, I do drop her
because I get fed up. But then I move on to the next beauty on my list, and then of course
have to deal with her particular attitude problem. Man, I'll tell ya, Doc. It is so hard
to find a real looker who doesn't give you a hard time or try to bust your chops in one
way or another.
I guess what I'm asking for is a kick in the pants and a pep talk/lecture on the main
signs to look for that spell trouble when dating a beautiful woman. Also some extra
inspirational info explaining why it's best to move on and move on immediately as soon as
she reveals her unacceptable character flaws. I kind of feel like an addict who needs some
Any feedback you could give me would be awesome. Thanks Doc.
Randolph - who just wants to be happy
There are a lot of guys out there who wouldn't mind having your problem. It certainly is
an ego rush to be out and about town with one hot babe after another. And if variety is
the spice of life, then I'd say that you've got more condiments than Wolfgang Puck.
But as your experiences in the dating trenches have taught you, Randolph, when it comes to
being in a long-term committed relationship, the attitude of your potential partner is
everything. A couple weeks of consistent nagging and whining from a ten and, as my Uncle
Jethro Love would say, "Soon enough, sonny boy, she ain't a ten no more." In
fact, by the time it gets to that point, you don't even care what her rating is or was.
All you want to do is get her out of your space.
You've got so many opportunities and so much "raw material" to work with that I
know I can upgrade your relationship satisfaction level with just a bit of fine tuning.
But you are going to have to be committed to straighten up and fly right. No more
knowingly doing the wrong thing just to have one extra temporary fleeting thrill.
The key for you, Randolph, is that you have to make your own integrity more important,
rewarding and meaningful to you than your addiction to beautiful women. You need to make a
real commitment to always do the right thing and to not even start down that path of
dabbling with danger and delusion when you see it laid out before you. Turn around and
walk on, my Brother. Tell yourself that never again will you compromise your integrity.
All right. Since you are a student of "The System." You probably (and should)
know all of this already, but I'm giving you what you asked for: a kick in the pants, an
inspirational pep talk to lead you to the truth rather than temptation. (As my cousin
Brother Love would say, "Lead us not into temptation, sayeth The Lord.") So take
this to heart.
Here are The Top Five Reasons to Dump your Date:
One) She's not a Giver: She's not considerate or helpful. She doesn't help you carry the
grocery bags upstairs. She doesn't bring a bottle of wine along to contribute to the
picnic dinner. She's all "Me. Me. Me." One of the dead giveaways: she's overly
concerned with material things. To you Psych majors, she loves overpriced jewelry.
Joyful giving of herself, her time and her energy, from the heart is just not part of her
language. There's NO good reason to have a second date with one of these Gals.
Two) She has no Integrity. She doesn't keep her word. You can't count on her. She's
consistently, chronically tardy. She "fibs" a lot and makes things up to satisfy
her own little agenda, thinking that you won't get it or at least will let her slide. She
even makes up whoppers when she doesn't need to. To you Psych majors, she's a pathological
Yep, she's got some serious character problems. So it's best to weed this woman out of
your garden of lovelies as quickly as you can. And I don't care if she looks like an Elle
magazine cover girl. Lose her.
Three) She's inflexible. You want to take her to the beach, and she doesn't want to go
because the wind might mess up her new hairdo. Doing anything that takes her out of her
comfort-zone is threatening to her. She can't handle any kind of spontaneity. She won't
change her agenda to fit in with yours. As far as she's concerned, you're the one who's
supposed to rearrange your plans to fit her needs. To you Psyche majors, she's a control
Four) She's a Complainer and a Nagger. You can't seem to do anything right in her eyes.
"Why do you always…? Why can't you ever…?" are two of her favorite questions
to ask. She has no conception of the value of building up a man's ego. She couldn't do it
if you paid her 50 grand just to fake it. Down deep she's not a happy person, and she
wants to bring you down to her unhappy level.
Ironically, many of these Nagger-type girls think that they are being helpful and
constructive when they do their number and have no clue that they are actually pushing men
away. (Of course, the more beautiful a Nagger is, the easier it is to find guys who will
tough it out, just to be around her. Now, you wouldn't want to be one of those kinds of
chumps, would you, Randolph?). Who cares about how she got to be the way she is? Let her
work it out with her therapist. It's not your job to try to fix her.
Five) You don't have good chemistry with her, and she's not fun to be with. The package
looks perfect. She's a knockout, and she knows how to dress to impress. She's doesn't
really seem to have any particular troublesome character traits either. But when you're
out with her, you just don't seem to really have fun. You find yourself working too hard
to keep the conversation going. She just doesn't 'get' your jokes. This is another losing
situation that can be quickly perceived, evaluated and terminated.
The last suggestion I would make to you Randolph, to help wean you from your addiction
(and you must truly admit to yourself that you are an addict for this to work), is to put
yourself on what I call a super-babe "fast." For the next three months, go out
only with women who are high sevens or less. Do it as a righteous discipline that is going
to teach you things about yourself that you never knew. When you report back to me after
this 90-day period, I'm certain that you'll have some very interesting things to share.
Remember, guys: It's ok to leave first, HONEST!
