The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    It's just so much easier because:

    a) if she was a potential stalker, she'd find out where I am at all times anyways
    b) my house is so close to downtown, it just makes more sense
    c) my house is usually where the afterhours parties are, so I don't want my friends trashing my house while I'm not there. I can usually prevent any damage from happening

    I change my name every month, move, paint my car a different color, and screen all of my calls, so it's not so bad.

    Actually had one this past weekend... Well, she's pretty cool and I've been talking to her since, so it may be more than a one-nighter, which is fine by me. A little young though...and a friend was previously trying to get with her, albeit unsuccessfully. He might be upset if he found out, but I'm not sure. I've definitely been in a whorin' mood since that girl and I split up a few weeks back. Maybe I'm using sex to fill in something I'm missing in my life... AWWW, WHO FRICKEN CARES?!?! WOOOOHOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!

    Wow, 13 years older than you? That's impressive. I don't have any mid-30s ladies on my list, although I always wanted one.

    ...settle down tryska.

    For you older guys and girls what age do you find it the easiest to get laid at. lol Stupid question but i'm thinking it would be hard to unless you had a gf when you are like 25 because if you don't go to clubs you would have a harder time meeting people.

    I know that when I go into bars frequented by late twenties/early thirties type folk, I *always* end up getting hit on by the older women.

    I guess its kinda cool that 35 year old women are like 18-25 year old men in regards to sex drive.

    hehe, i hate having to make up an excuse to get a chick outta my house cuz i dont want her there and am too much of a pussy to say so. ive used the "uh gotta be at work, i know its sunday, but i got a wierd job" excuse once. then its back to bed.

    but it seems to me that the whole one-nighter thing is more prominent after you turn 21...at least in my case since i havent had any yet, and im only 20. it just makes more sense too, because at this age, im more likely to meet chicks through school, therefore i see them afterwards more than likely. whereas this whole club thing seems ripe with one-nighters, just due to the fact that that is what people seem to be there for, most at least.

    Centaurion I think i need way better odds. The reason why i didn't post sooner was because i was still kind of seeing that one girl.....anyways
    I went up to talk to the one girl but she had her friends with her. I said hi and asked how they were. I swear their jaws dropped. I then said I'd seen them so many times around school and was wondering what language they were speaking. They told me but i swear these people were rude. I swear I was about to say "I don't know about your old countru but here in Canada we have something called manners!"

    Anyways I'll go talk to the one tomorrow only if she's by herself.

    check this milestone i scooped up

    ** Make Them Think They Have Something To Lose **


    I was at a bar once and I spotted a hot looking woman. I approached
    her to pick her up only to have her tell me she just got there and
    does not want to be bothered, she does not give out her number, and to
    try to talk to her later if she has the time.

    She said she wants to be cautious about meeting people and does not
    allow herself to be so freely open up or give out her number.

    I saw her a few times during my time at the bar - each time with a
    different guy having a blast.

    So near the end of the night I figured I have nothing to lose so I
    went up to her and said, "I am leaving now. I guess we never did get
    a chance to connect and have a totally passionate love affair."

    She looked stunned. I gave her my number.

    A week went by, she called and apologized for her rude behavior in the
    bar and for taking so long to call me. We ended up going out and
    having a blast together.

    Although we never ended up having a relationship, because her rudeness
    re-emerged later, we still had a blast going out.

    But I kept thinking about why this worked and if I could repeat
    whatever I did I could be very successful.

    The answer came to me 5 months later as I was reading about the
    Scarcity Principle and its effectiveness in influencing behavior. The
    principle says that the more scarce something is, then more valuable
    that something seems to actually become.

    What makes things even more valuable is when they are at first
    plentiful, but then are taken away or reduced in amounts later.
    People therefore seem to be more influenced by the possibility of loss
    rather than opportunity for gain.

    So the idea is to make someone think they have something already, or
    the potential to have something great, and if they do not act or take
    advantage of what you suggest, they may lose it forever.

    It is also advisable to structure your argument in terms of prevention
    of loss rather than opportunity for gain (i.e. "If you do not drink
    your milk, your teeth will fall out" rather than "Drink your milk to
    have stronger teeth.")

    This is why my initially disinterested lady turned around and became
    interested and agreed to go out with me. Through my comment I
    indicated to her that we could have a great time and a passionate
    affair, and if we do not connect we may lose a great opportunity.

    Fearing the loss of something that she may already have, she acted on
    her fear of loss -- called me, apologized, and agreed to go out with
    me.

    So now what I do when I meet a new lady is I say...

    "You and I could have a blast going out. It would be a shame if we
    never had the opportunity to do that." or

    "It would be great if we exchanged numbers since otherwise we may lose
    a great opportunity to see each other again."

    If she says she is busy, not interested, does not date men she meets
    at wherever you met her, has a boyfriend, or whatever, I say...

    "You know I could be the guy with whom you can have the greatest time
    of your life, but by your reluctance you could forever lose this
    opportunity and never have a chance to find out." or

    "You have no idea how great of a time we could have and how much fun
    we could have together with each other. It would be a shame if we
    lost that opportunity forever." or

    "You say that you just want to be friends, but you and I could have
    one of the world's greatest romances. But you would never experience
    that and lose it forever since you only want to be just friends." or

    "You say you do not want to take me up to your apartment tonight
    because you will feel guilty in the morning. But you and I could have
    one of the greatest nights making love, and you could feel great in
    the morning, but you will lose the opportunity to find out if we do
    not...."

    And on and on.

    Now simply describing a benefit is not as effective in that when you
    describe a benefit people automatically begin to think of possible
    drawbacks to what you suggest. They want to revert back to their
    average and normal perception of their reality. And by describing a
    benefit, you are going above their average experience.

    To bring themselves back to their average they need to think of
    negative drawbacks. This very often prevents people from taking
    advantage of what you offer unless they are prime and ready right then
    and there, which is usually the case where their current condition has
    taken them below their mental average.

    Most people are even keel though, and to get around this problem you
    can make it seem as if they already have something great, or have the
    chance to gain some great benefit, but stand to lose it if they do not
    act.

    Thus making it seem that their inaction or disinterest or reluctance
    has them below their average. They need to act to take themselves
    back to their average reality.

    My success rate on getting women to go out with me has increased about
    40% while my ability to turn around unsure and flaking women has
    doubled.

    Think of all the women you could lose by not trying out these methods.
    They could all be out there waiting for you, but you will never know
    by sitting around continuing to do what you are doing.
