In Mike’s world, girls fall in love with him, text him playfully and he has to manage those relationships.
News Flash. 99% of your readers, and 99% of men in this world, are not epic players who have women tell them “you are so cute … when are we going to F@” or get texts from girls like “what are you up to tonight?” or “so I haven’t heard from you in a while”.
The biggest problem for beginner and intermediate gamers is getting her to meet up with you. You think you’ve had a good conversation and then suddenly, you text her two days later and she doesn’t respond.
I understand that a GREAT text message can’t salvage a bad approach. However a bad text message could kill a mediocre one.
My suggestion: Give readers one or two ideas for what to text her as an opener so you can get her to respond and set up the date. Or provide examples of full conversations where guys are successful at hooking her over text which leads to a meet.
Instead of getting one star, I’ve decided to give the book another star because of two conversations I think could prove helpful for managing relationships. First, when the guy has to respond after the girl cancels a second time:
“Hey Jim, so sorry but that date we had planned? I can’t go, I have too much work.”
“Really? This will be the second time that you have cancelled on me and with only one-day notice?”
“So sorry, I will make it up to you.”
“Honestly I don’t know if I want you to. Now I have to make new plans. Is your time more valuable than mine?”
“Okay, now I feel guilty.”
“I honestly am not trying to punish you, but changing on me last minute isn’t cool.”
“Hey, tell you what, let me move things around and keep that date.”
“I would appreciate that.”
This guy is firm and shows he’s unafraid to lose her. Well done.
And second conversation, after a date:
“had a great time last night, you are pretty funny”
“I think you’ve affected my dating life”
“I want to find more cute med students to hang out with now!”
“Whatever, none are as cute as me”
“Currently rolling my eyes and making gagging sounds”
This guy is playful, hooks her with his second text and effectively uses push/pull.
The general gist of the book is: relationships are about equilibrium (teeter-totters) and texting is therefore subject to the same rules. Be clever, confident and establish boundaries and "Oh yeah and use Facebook and use emojis". My advise to other people considering is this book: don't bother. It only allows the author to continue his delusional belief that he is in fact a "relationship expert".
P.S. Who was the porn star anyways? Swear to God i won't tell. Lol!
