I’ve been reading a lot about game lately and there’s one thing that strikes me: There are dozens, if not hundreds of valid stories out there, everyday guys talking about how game changed their lives for the better. OTOH I’ve never seen a single guy saying he has tried game and it didn’t work*. There are lots of naysayers out there, but they’ve never actually tried game. This becomes apparent the moment they open their mouths and start talking nonsense like “game is fakery”, “game is hard work” and so on and so forth. We who actually know what game is also know what game isn’t. Some naysayers read about game and decide it does not work sitting in front of their computers. Some of them do not even read, they just shut their minds the moment they see the first sign of game-related jargon.
What is even more intriguing is that there are naysayers out there who even admit that game works. They just don’t want to put in the effort to have better relationships. They say women should desire them sexually no matter what they do because of their marriage vows. They are like the “fat acceptance” idiots insisting men should desire fat women. Of course we sane people know that’s not how instincts work, but once you’re stuck with the notion that you’re entitled to something it’s very hard to let go. So if you think you’re entitled to be desired no matter how desirable you actually are, then game is a bitter pill to swallow.
Anyway, to get back to the point: there are people who think game doesn’t work, and there are people who have tried it. There is no intersection between the two sets. To me this says everything.
* Well, there are of course bitter idiots out there, like OmegaVirginRevolt, who say they’ve tried game but in fact it’s clear as daylight they don’t understand a word of it.
