This question is about the book THE RULES.

I think Taiwanese girls all go by the rules in that stupid book.

Cool :cool: ! I will Google it.


Seriously? Why do you need a book? I take it us men can communicate with women? Really put the book down.


Doing fine without the book. It is just good to know what bullshit is going on. And I have heard it is actually quite funny.

Funny as in witty, or funny in a tragic way?

Taiwanese boys don't know the rules. If they really like the girl, they just not give it up to try!
I don't know the rules!

Whole Lotta Lotta wrote:There is a book written by two nut-ball women called 'The Rules.' It is supposedly :roll: a book of rules for women who are trying to find a husband while dating. Among the 'Rules' are: Never call him first and rarely return his phone calls. Always say 'no' the first time he asks you for a date and make him ask a second time. Never accept a date for Saturday any earlier than Wednesday, etc.
The idea is to seem more distant to men, so that they will be more attracted to you. They think that the less interest a woman shows in a man, the more the man will be interested in them.
My question is this; Do you think Taiwanese women follow the rules in this book, or would follow them, if they knew about the book. Or do you think there is no way a Taiwanese girl would ever behave like this :ponder: ?


Do you think guys fellow the book "the game" ?
This question you should ask Taiwanese girls not western guys :lol:

I guess I don't see why people spend so much time discussing strategy and this easy-to-get v. hard-to-get approaches. Couldn't they spend their time making themselves worth the attention of others, and then filter for interests?

I dance well, supposedly, and that gets people interested in meeting me. Of the ones who I meet, I can choose someone who interests me more. If something lasts more than a few dates, it works out and we stay together. If there's some serious defect or incompatibility, I move to my next prospect.

But what do I see? Prowlers! And they've all got the same strategy.
1.) Men strike up small talk with the ladies or make overt efforts to try to dance with them.
2.) Through small talk or dancing, the men make efforts to involve some sort of physical contact, and to keep it for as long as they can.
3.) Then the men say a few flirting lines.
4.) Then the men play some tired coaxing act to convince the girls "to get out of here," (because, e.g., the venue suddenly sucks, or they know a better place, or they're just so interested in hearing her in a quieter location), by which they mean, to get into their taxis.

That's a great strategy, save for a few problems. (1) Sober women, or even smart, drunk ones, can smell prowlers almost instantly, and they will either manipulate them for free drinks, or they will ignore them entirely. (2) No woman on Earth has been worth chasing before really knowing them and caring about them. (3) One flop is seen by all, and no one is just so anxious to be the second choice. (4) Few men have the ability to work through those prowler steps without messing up.

That all sounds like time better spent on a few crunches, from what I've seen.

That's too much like hard work. I prefer this strategy below.

Second of all, as in all honeymoons, all is well until it is not. It is until the unexpected happens that you will see all grievances surface -ask anyone in any relationship. The girl can chew with her mouth open, that if you love her, you do not care. If you do not lover her, if her pinkie toe is half an inch deviant, the relationship is doomed. - Icon
