"I live, as many women do, in sort of this frustrating dichotomy between wanting to be filled with self-acceptance and a sense of power and efficacy and value, and being constantly told, ‘All that’s great, but if you’re overweight, you’re sort of a loser.’"


How to Talk To Chicks Online Without Being a Creepy Dbag

Because apparently this is sorely needed advice.

  1. Don’t send guilt-trippy, passive-aggressive, manipulative messages because she hasn’t answered you in the last 24 hours. This does not make women want to date you. 
  2. "Nice tits" is not, in fact, a recognized greeting anywhere in the world. 
  3. Don’t get pissy if a woman wants to talk to you online for a while before meeting you. This is actually a good thing—it means she’s interested enough to wanna find out more. 
  4. Calling a woman a bitch and a tease because she politely declined your invitation does not make her magically change her mind. 
  5. I know it’s confusing, but “bisexual” actually means attracted to both sexes, not “I will sleep with anything with pulse.”

If those five things are too complicated, please remember this one golden rule: Treat women like actual human beings and not walking vaginas that you want to plough and watch miracles happen!

This brought to you by adventures on Ok Cupid, both experienced by me and relayed to me by friends.

This day in history:

Minutes before giving a speech on a campaign stop in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Theodore Roosevelt is shot in an assassination attempt.  

The would-be assassin’s bullet is slowed down after travelling through a steel eyeglass case and the folded, fifty page speech he intended to give, stopping in his chest.  Realizing that he wasn’t coughing up blood, Roosevelt figured he was well enough to go ahead and deliver his speech rather than rush to the hospital.

He spoke for the next 90 minutes, opening with the words:

Ladies and gentlemen, I don’t know whether you fully understand that I have just been shot; but it takes more than that to kill a Bull Moose.”

Doctors deemed it too risky to remove the bullet, and Roosevelt carried it with him inside his body for the rest of his life.

October 14, 1912 - 99 years ago today. 

Teddy Roosevelt is my hero okay. No one has ever BAMFed as much as that man.

What we know from this is that you have to make the ask, whatever it is. That’s the basic principle of marketing—you can’t just assume people will do something. Ask them to do it, and they usually will.
