It's So Simple
Imagine right now that I'm leaping up and down and shaking my fist at the sky.
I'm on my knees pleading with you. I'm saying this in a loud voice: “Please, if you can trust one thing I say in this book, let it be this: When it comes to men, deal with us as we are, and not how you'd like us to be.”
I know it's an infuriating concept—that men like to chase and you have to let us chase you.
I know. It's insulting. It's frustrating. It's unfortunately the truth.
My belief is that if you have to be the aggressor, if you have to pursue, if you have to do the asking out, nine times out of ten, he's just not that into you.
And we want you to believe you're one of the nine, ladies!
I can't say it loud enough: You, the super fox listening to this audile book, are worth asking out.
Here's Why This One is Hard, by Liz
Well, it's obvious. Are you telling us that we have to just sit around and wait?
I don't know about you, but I find that infuriating.
I was brought up to believe that hard work and good planning are the keys to making your dreams come true.
I spent my life making things happen for myself.
I worked hard for my career, and was quite aggressive about it.
I called people, made appointments, asked for favors. I took action.
But now Greg is telling us that in this situation, we are supposed to do absolutely nothing.
The guys get to pick.
We're just supposed to put on our little dresses and do our hair and bat our eyes and hope they choose us.
Why don't you just tie my corset too tight so I can faint in front of some man who'll scoop me out of the way just before the horse-drawn carriage runs over me?
That'll get his attention. Really, in this day and age, the hardest thing to do for many women,particularly me, is nothing.
We like to scheme, make phone calls, have a plan.
And I'm talking about more than just making sure our hair doesn't frizz.
Most women who date, I would guess, don't have men throwing themselves at them every night of the week.
Sometimes there's a long stretch during which nobody's asking us out.
So when we see a guy that we feel might be a romantic possibility, it's even harder for us to take a backseat.
That opportunity might not come back again for a long time.
