One of the major difficulties I have in trying to explain to women how men think is that they’re not men.
Things that are common sense or basic nature to guys, such as hooking up with a gal we’ve never seen in life before 5 minutes ago, just doesn’t register to most women in their understanding of reality.
Still, I enjoy TRYING to make it clear for women because if they don’t understand the basic premises that my articles rely on as a foundation, they won’t be able to receive posts like “Who Cares How Your Day Was? in the proper context to learn something and improve their lives.
Less Filling!… Tastes Great!
I was reminded of this because yesterday, I was asked if I liked how beer tastes.
In fact.. The taste of beer is practically irrelevant. The importance of beer is that it gets you high.
This can’t possibly be understood by someone who has never gotten high. Actually, a lot of you are thrown off right now, because in your limited understanding of life, you equate “high” with drug use. You’re not able to accept the term “high” to mean an altered state, so let’s use that term instead.
The point of beer is that it alters your state.. NOT that it tastes good.
People who never alter their state can’t possibly comprehend what this means or how it feels. This makes describing “altering one’s state” to someone that doesn’t experience it on a regular basis or hasn’t experienced it at all almost impossible.
If you don’t understand the concept of being in an altered state, you’re not going to see nasty-tasting beer as better than good-tasting Kool-Aid in any way, shape or form. To you, drinking beer is the same as drinking soda or juice, except it tastes worse and is of less nutritional value to your body.
I can’t explain to you the difference between being sober and being ‘buzzed’. I can’t explain the difference between being ‘buzzed’ and being ‘nice’. I can’t explain to you the difference between being ‘nice’ and being ‘wasted’. I can’t explain to you the difference between being ‘wasted’ and being ‘incapacitated’.
You see these states on reality shows, but they’re not going to make sense to you unless you’ve mentally been in that same situation. When Ronnie on ‘Jersey Shore’ comes home from the club and slaps five with all his boys and says [paraphrasing] “Now that I finished making out with multiple chicks at the club, I’m gonna go crawl in bed with Sammi, have sex with her and go to sleep next to her”, I understand how wasted he is. He’s not actually being a jerk.. He’s doing what seems like common sense to him during his currently altered state. People that don’t understand this judge him as if he drank Kool-Aid all night, made out with a bunch of Grenades and then hopped into bed with his so-called girlfriend, Sammi, completely sober and deliberately creepily.
Chick Are Beer
Similarly.. Women think of themselves as juice when they’re actually beer. The point isn’t how you taste, but rather how high we get when we’re around you.
This is why a lot of women are surprised when they’re so educated, accomplished & successful and their man gets caught cheating with some burger-flipping female from the local fast food restaurant. Did anybody care that she had no earning potential and/or had three kids? NOPE! 😀 The only thing that mattered was that she looked good and was DTF.
Just like the value of beer is that it can get you high, the value of a gal to hook up with is that she turns you on and you feel like having sex when you’re around her. You can drink all the apple juice you want and you’ll never feel buzzed. If your goal is to drink something or avoid dehydration, juice is the way to go. If your goal is to alter your state, beer is the way to go.
So women need to concentrate on the means their SOs use to alter their states if they want to understand what motivates guys to do what they do. Does your PhD turn him on? Nope. Your Lexus or your condo? Nope. Maybe you should buy a tight-fitting McDonald’s uniform and make sure you’re wearing it when he walks in the door from work. O_o
If you’re not altering his state, you’re leaving the door open for the next gal to capture his interest and hook up with your man. What YOU want is for him to say “This girl right here is FOYINE, but I’m gonna go home to MY girl because I know I’m about to have the time of my life, as usual. >:D”.
My friend Stephanie says “We are not beer, but rather a tall glass of fine pinot noir”. hehe That may very well be the case, but y’all need to be SOMETHING that makes guys’ lives more fantastic by your presence.
Yes.. I agree that women can be analogous to a wide range of alcoholic beverages.. Some that are smooth and sweet.. Some that sneak up on you and then in the morning, you’re like “WHAT THE HELL DID I DO LAST NIGHT? \o/”. It’s definitely important to categorize women properly so you don’t end up drinking beer on a night when you’re craving tequila.
Do I Look Fat?
The point, ladies, is that if some guy’s talking to you or trying to date you or trying to hook up with you, it’s not because some supernatural force caused him to interact with you. You get him high. Period. It might be your body, it might be your mind, it might be your face, it might be the way you walk, it might be the way you talk, it might even be the fact that you can code a website (not really, but I just wanted to give y’all Nerd-Chicks some hope). Whatever it is, it’s IMPERATIVE that you understand what your guy likes about you.
If he likes your flowing, wavy hair and you straighten it, you might could get dumped. If he likes how long it was and you cut it, you might could get dumped. If he likes how thick your body was and then you deliberately lose 20 pounds, you might could get dumped. If he likes how you stand up for yourself and then you decide to become complaisant because someone told you that’s what guys look for in gals, you might could get dumped. If he likes how you look in flannel shirts and construction boots and you come to see him in a dress with sandals, you might could not get laid that night.
It’s a tough row to hoe, but I’m going to keep on trying. 😀 Projecting female thought processes onto males and trying to figure out what we’re going to do will never work. Our minds are stimulated differently. The sooner you realize this, the more you’ll understand about men. The more you understand about us, the more you’ll be able to make educated decisions about your relationships.
When was the last time you saw a guy become mesmerized by a shoe store window display?
When was the last time you told a guy “I love you” and it made an immediate difference in how he acted?
When was the last time a guy asked you if he looked fat in this shirt?
When was the last time a guy was dating a burger-flipper from a fast food restaurant and cheated on her with a female CEO that he wasn’t sexually attracted to? 😀 .. Never… Buy a vowel. Get a clue.
