i should just start being a douche to every single person I meet. maybe that'll work. god damn it.

yes this is a somewhat alcohol-fueled post.

Hey Hurricane... hang in there. Remember that it's easier to attract more flies with honey, than with vinegar. Besides, you can only be a douchebag for so long before it catches up with you. Karma can be a b***!

Not true. I think a lot of alpha male types are the way they are because of a thing called penis envy.

Sure, "bad boys" can and do attract women...but when it comes to their ability to maintain successful long-term relationships where both partners are mutually happy and satisfied...their batting average ain't that good.

It's possible to be nice...and at the same time exciting, interesting, assertive and willing to stand up for yourself and your beliefs. These things can generate interest and attraction from others. Be that guy. It's OK to live a little.

Don't be the nice and boring guy. Many genuinely nice people come across as mundane.
