The alpha male of cheese(siness)
I don’t believe in being full on alpha-asshole all the time to girls.
In fact, unless that is 100% your personality, I think it’s slightly incongruent.
Maybe you struggle with this too, finding the balance between nice guy (who you really are – most guys are generally good people!) and “alpha”.
So, just wait ‘til you try this (or the equivalent):
My girl eats a lot of cheese.
I think it’s a Ukrainian thing, because her friend does too. Between these two girls they must consume a dozen of these little cheeses a week.
They’re small little circles, roughly 120 grams. Just enough for a larg(ish?) snack.
So anyways, my girl practically eats one of these things a day. I never stop making fun of her for it.
Here’s what I did:
I went and bought a half-dozen of the things (they’re a buck each), and completely lined the fridge with them. An entire shelf is taken up with camembert cheese.
I even took special precaution to make sure that ALL of her other food, juice, milk, etc. is hidden behind it.
Now, this is definitely a “nice” thing to do. And it’s also a dickish thing to do.
But I’m also going to have a kick out of it when she opens the fridge this afternoon and sees all those cheeses looking at her.
This is the important part:
I am amusing myself.
Sure, I’m doing something quite nice for her. She’s got a week’s supply of cheese. But I’m poking fun at her at the same time, and I’m going to have a good laugh out of it. I may even film it and use it to
blackmail tease her later.
But hang on.
We’re not through yet.
Girls can’t help but be attracted by these kind of things. This one simple action, which cost me $6 and no time whatsoever, does the following:
= Provides – she is being “taken care of” by the man in her life
= Amused mastery – I’m entertaining myself (at her expense), showing that I can have a laugh at life
= Keeping her on her toes – she never knows whether she’ll get the more quiet, stoic guy, or the guy who is being nice and buying her cheese, or the goofy guy who is going to laugh his ass off at her later (in this specific case she’s getting two of these)
All of these = attraction.
Here’s how you can implement this, too:
Got a girl you like, or a girlfriend? Take her favorite cheap food/drink and completely fill one of her shelves with it. Make sure it’s something that you tease her often for.
It’s that easy.
Preferably, make it a healthier thing. I wouldn’t encourage any girl (especially westerners) to eat copious amounts of Oreo cookies, for example.
So, the message is clear:
Balancing “alpha” and “nice guy” can be difficult, but it really doesn’t take much to pull off both at the same time.
Just insert a food or drink and prepare for a laugh.
