SLOW AND EASY, OR FAST AND FURIOUS?
Women Don't Lie - Men Don't Listen
Success Coach - Doc Love
First I would like to quickly thank you for giving us your principles, as they help me
screen out the annoying games most women play. I read your articles quite often and always
I have a question that I dont think has come up yet: whats better to
have in the long run -- a woman with high Interest Level right off the bat, or one that
youve had to build up over time?
I know it sounds like a no-brainer, but with high Interest Level straight out of the gate,
it seems that you have more chances to screw up because the woman will show early interest
in you, thus making your own Interest Level shoot through the roof, which often leads to
mistakes because you just plain get sloppy. On the other hand, with a woman whose Interest
Level youve built up from 51%, youve had to work harder to be a Challenge (not
to mention behave yourself!) and show her that youre a great guy to be with, versus
a guy who is given an easy path with the possibility of the romance fizzling out.
I am asking you this because of whats occurred with the last two women I dated. The
first, who Ill call Charlize, was a female friend of one year who was converted into
a romance, which was very nice until she moved away for grad school. The second girl,
Angelina, didnt even like me at first and expressed it in so many words. Two months
later, shes wildly in love with me, wants to get very intimate and calls me day and
night (I guess thats what I get for being a Challenge, telling her I am not really
interested in seeing her long term, and not kissing up to her like every other guy).
Please let me know your opinion: would I have been better off with Charlize, whose
interest built slowly, or Angelina, who I have to beat back with a stick.
Christopher who wonders if he should have let the first one go
Congratulations on bringing up a very interesting question. But the answer is that it
really doesnt make any difference. Youre going to have to do the same work in
the case of both the low AND the high Interest Level woman, so the issue is nothing but
academic. To you Psych majors, dating is like baseball. Youre going to see 100 mph
fastballs, and youre going to see hanging curveballs at 75 mph, and youre
going to see 60 mph changeups. But as a batter, youre going to have to hit them all
or at least try to.
And so youre going to run into women who will have an Interest Level of 80% after
talking to you for five minutes, and youre going meet women who are going to have an
Interest Level of 51% after talking to you for two hours. But they both like you.
Its just a matter of which one youre going to get the chance to work on. And
it doesnt really matter which it is, as long as you know how to drive her Interest
Level out of the ballpark. Whats so great about The System is that it
doesnt matter what she throws you, because youre going to know what to do.
But Christopher, you are right about one thing. With high (75% to 85%) Interest Level from
the get-go, you do have more chances to screw up with a girl. As Sal The Fish
Love says, As soon as you open your mouth shes going to find out what a
lightweight you are, and her Interest Level is heading straight downhill from there!
The fact is that it doesnt matter if a woman shows early high interest in you.
Because your Interest Level is already through the roof she doesnt need to
push it up for you any further. And whats worse is that no doubt youre already
showing her yours. So youre right -- you will get plain sloppy when things are going
your way. When they arent, youll get even sloppier.
With your 51% Interest Level woman, you dont have to work harder -- you just have to
work longer. With this honey you should be doing the same exact things as you do with a
girl whose Interest Level is bumping the outer limits of space.
Okay. Now, lets look at what you have or dont have with your two
girlfriends. Regarding Charlize, let me quote my cousin, Fast Eddie Love:
She loved you so much, she left town! Maybe Charlize did have 51% Interest
Level in you at one point, guy, but apparently you didnt do anything to move it up
the scale or even keep it where it was. In fact, you drove her Interest Level in the
opposite direction the more she got to know you. No lady with a growing Interest Level in
a guy buys a one-way ticket out of town, so dont even try to fool yourself about
what was going on there.
That leaves us with your current squeeze, Angelina. Sorry to have to break the news to
you, Christopher, but Challenge doesnt work on three types: Feministas, Mercenaries,
and Psychos. And a Psycho is what youve got on your hands here. This girls a
ding-dong. You dont go from telling a guy to his face Not if youre the
last man on earth! to suddenly seeing the light of his tremendous desirability out
of nowhere. The Reality Factor says: BEWARE OF INCONSISTENT BEHAVIOR. Would you call the
sweet Angelina a model of steadiness, or is she more like Norman Bates sister?
Finally, you asked my opinion. My opinion is this: you didnt read my principles
