WOULD BRAD TAKE ANGELINA BACK IF SHE GOT COLD FEET?
Women Don't Lie - Men Don't Listen
Success Coach - Doc Love
I am a loyal follower of “The System” and your techniques. I think you’ve really got
it together when it comes to women and relationships. Now this is just a request and you
might not want to deal with it, but I thought it might help some other men out there.
I’d like you to address the recent story about the woman in Georgia who bolted a few
days before her oversized, showy wedding, fabricated a kidnapping story, then when the
cops found her sniveling in a phone booth in New Mexico, recanted the whole thing and
admitted she just had “cold feet” and had in reality ran away from getting hitched. It
looks like she even had it planned long before the big event.
First off, why do you think this story has captured the public’s imagination the way it
has? After all, it’s really only a local-yokel story about some chick jilting a guy, and
the people involved aren’t that interesting to begin with. What do you make of it?
The next thing that I find fascinating is that this woman’s dumped boyfriend still wants
to marry her. In fact, when they were reunited at her parents’ house after she was
brought home by the authorities, he put the diamond back on her finger like nothing at all
had happened! No word so far on whether she accepted it.
Is this guy the dictionary’s definition of Wimpus Americanus or what? I hear people on
television talk about him being “understanding.” Do you think maybe that’s true and
I’m being too harsh in my judgment of him? In an interview the guy said something along
these lines: “I forgive her. We all make mistakes, don’t we?”
One last thing. I read somewhere once that psychiatrists say that if you can see the
whites around the irises of a person’s eyes, then the person is totally crazy. That’s
definitely the case with the runaway bride if you’ve seen her pictures. Do you think
maybe she’s just insane and that’s why she did what she did? Maybe it’s worth
considering, don’t you think?
Thanks for weighing in, Doc. I’m dying to hear your opinions on this one.
Antoine - who wonders how he’d handle it if it happened to him
Thanks for your kind words. Now I’m not going to say I’m right 100% of the time. But I
will tell you this: I’m hitting the bull’s-eye at a rate of about 98.7% when it comes
to the dating game. Why? Because none of the other dating coaches out there ever talk
about the man’s most important ally on the battlefield of love -- CHALLENGE.
Now, let’s move on to your questions. Not only did the runaway bride fabricate a
ridiculous fairytale, she also accused a fictitious Hispanic male of abducting her. Her
false accusation cast a long shadow over all the decent, honest, hardworking Hispanics who
are legal citizens of this country. And it means she’s a bigot. Do bigots ever make good
mothers? It’s something to think about.
Antoine, there was absolutely no doubt whatsoever that this lulu had a scheme planned out
way in advance. She purchased the bus ticket she used to blow town a full week before the
day she actually split! She left her keys and wallet at home because she intended for it
to look like a kidnapping. THIS WAS A PREMEDITATED CRIME. IT WAS COMPLETELY CALCULATED.
She just didn’t suddenly lose her marbles because the pressure of the impending nuptials
was getting to her. She laid it all out cunningly --- like a lion stalking a wildebeest in
the Serengeti for days on end. Or like Ivana or Marla or Melania setting a trap to snare
The question of why this story has captured the public’s imagination is a good one. I
can understand the fascination with Michael Jackson or Phil Spector – these are
celebrities, big, recognizable names. But for some reason, certain stories pique America’s
fancy, and this story is one.
This runaway bride just didn’t blubber, “I don’t want to marry you,” like Julia
Roberts told Kiefer Sutherland. Julia pulled out on Kiefer three days before the wedding,
but she didn’t lay out any twisted, diabolical plans beforehand. Not that what Julia
Roberts did was right, but our current runaway did a great deal of pre-planning to get out
of the big day. In other words, the story is like a Hollywood potboiler or a soap opera --
and we know how America is a sucker for a Hollywood potboiler or a soap opera. Why do you
think we still can’t get enough of O.J. and Scott Peterson?
To you Psych majors, how can the runaway bride be kind and loving when she pulls something
like this? Is this the behavior of a kind and loving woman? Are these nasty character
traits what a guy is supposed to overlook when he ties the knot? Sheesh! I’ve known
There’s something else involved here, too. These days we have nothing else to talk
about. The media has gotten tired of covering terrorism, so they have to look for
something else. What also makes the runaway bride story riveting is the fact that the cops
were on the boyfriend like white on rice as a potential suspect at first. If the runaway
had slipped out to Malibu and fell off a cliff, her fiancé would be sitting in the
slammer right now wishing Johnnie Cochran were still around. And this is the guy who’s
begging her to take back the ring!
Which brings us to this pitiful dolt. I could take this guy, stick him in a jail cell and
tell him, “Unless you memorize the Dating Dictionary I’m going to kill your parents!”
And he might memorize the book under pain of that threat, know it inside and out, and
answer all my test questions correctly, but at the end of the day he would still take her
back. Some guys just aren’t fixable. This idiot is such a slave to his own Interest
Level that he can’t see the forest for the trees. On top of it all, rejection doubles
Interest Level. His is hovering around 190% right now.
So he’s going to beg some more. He’s going to grovel, and he’s going to get down on
his hands and knees. I can just hear him whimpering like a whipped puppy: “Oh, my
darling, please, don’t leave me! I can’t live without you!”
So he’s even a lower form of male than Wimpus Americanus, Antoine. He’s what’s
called a STOOGE. He’s just not getting it at all. If they ever named a river after him,
it would be DE-NIAL, just like the one in Egypt. This poor sap’s ego is in such a state
of shock that to protect himself he has to put a happy face on the very ugly thing that
But with the passage of time, if he has any brains at all (and that’s doubtful) his
resentment is going to build. I mean, can you imagine being married to this model of
stability? One day he’s going to come home from his long day at the office (where he
slaves to keep his ice princess happy) and there’s going to be a note for him sitting on
the kitchen table: “Honey, I’m leaving you, and I took the two kids. Sorry it didn’t
work out after all.” And then of course everyone’s going to say, “Well, it wasn’t
the first time. She did it before. She told you she was nuts up front! Didn’t you see
this coming?” And, of course, he didn’t. Or he chose to remain as blind as Stevie
So guys, this wasn’t just some “mistake.” What does the runaway bride have to do
before everybody catches on -- burn the church to the ground? Does she have to flatten her
fiancé’s house with a tractor before he gets it? How many people does she have to run
over in a crosswalk with her truck before we wake up and say maybe this isn’t such a
Finally there’s her pastor, who’s telling us how ecstatic everyone is that she’s
back home and how the Lord is a presence in the room and once the runaway gets some
professional treatment she’ll be well in a matter of days and everything will be
perfect. But like my cousin Brother Love says, “Jesus and the Devil don’t work
together.” This preacher ought to go back and read his Bible some more.
As far as our flighty lady’s wild eyes go, well, I’m not that kind of doctor. And I
don’t buy into generalizations that condemn all females. All I know is this – she’s
a whack-job. Like I always tell you guys, you have to start with a clinically sane person.
Remember, guys: never try to keep somebody who doesn’t want to keep you.
