Ask DB1: Game Over

—–
Hey DB1,

I’ve noticed lately on your site, you have posted some stuff regarding the doucheness of gamebags (Russell Brand, Everybody doesn’t love Raymond, Mystery)….

While I would agree that their spectacle makes them douchified, I think we may be a little hard on them. I, for instance, am trying to get better with women myself..So, naturally, some of the stuff the gamebags discuss are good applications to use in the dating game (eg. 3 second rule when approaching a woman). At what point do we accept the gamebags, because, for good or for worse, some of their ideas can help great guys (like me), make success………….Does that make me a douche for accepting some of their ideas?

I’m not saying that they are off the hook for mocking, but where is the fine-line between using good dating ideas and becoming a douche? I, like you (im assuming), want to be great with women like they are.

Cheers,
Jason

The problem, Jason, is that it wasn’t always this way. The acquisition of the hott didn’t always function as a scoreboard for masculine accomplishment.

Your goals are laudable. You desire the boobie hottie suckle thigh. However what you do in pursuit of the hott, how much you allow yourself to transform into douchey-ass spectacle, is as important as the end result.

We must shift the culture around us. Bring back laughter and goofiness and fun to the mating game. It doesn’t have to be the dour, humorless contest of wills and egos that has been sold to us by the culture industry because it’s profitable for them to turn us into walking billboards.

If enough of us push back, the shift will take place.
