I read an article
this morning (via Instapundit) entitled "18 Things Men Need To Know That Women Won’t Tell Them." The Your Tango expert article is written by Deanna Frazier, the author of Dating 101: The Second, Third, or Fourth Time Around.
She states that "It’s not how much money you have, or looks, or power, its PRESENCE.."
Really? Then why is all the advice given about how to improve your looks, confidence (which on some level gives the illusion of power), and money, because without it, you can't hire the coaches, and buy the manicures and hand lotions you need to impress the women.
Let's take a look at her advice on how to improve your luck with the ladies. First up:
It truly doesn't matter how much money you make, whether or not you’re overweight, walk with a limp or are going bald. Many wonderful women would love to have you in their lives.
If this is true, why are there so many balding, overweight broke guys out there who can't get a date? Why are most women fighting over the "alpha males" while leaving the rest home playing video games if they really wanted the bald and broke? If these guys had the "presence," outlined in the article, would they get a date? Somehow, I doubt it.
"Presence" seems to be obtained by looking good with expensive haircuts, manicures and lotions. The right haircut will impress as "the look of money or prosperity comes from shiny, healthy well-trimmed ends and natural looking color" (#9). If women aren't impressed by money, then why is the author telling men to have expensive looking hair that "looks like money." I thought money didn't matter. I'm confused, are you?
And men aren't even supposed to look like men. They should not
be wearing plaid or flannel shirts (#10) and if they mow the lawn, they shouldn't let anyone know it. Cover it with a manicure or hand lotion (#13 and #14).
If any male reader out there has gotten a date by walking up to a woman and saying "You look very elegant and sophisticated" (#18), while sporting hand lotion, a manicure, and a non-interrupting style while she talks (#3), let us know. Perhaps I'm missing something here.
