NPR Morning Edition has a featured story about a lonely single man who decided to take charge of his romantic life after suffering a body blow from an ex-wife who exercised her right to express herself hypergamously.
This segment of the show explores how a man decided to conquer his fear of rejection by getting rejected every day — on purpose.
The evolution of Jason Comely, a freelance IT guy from Cambridge, Ontario, began one sad night several years ago.
“That Friday evening that I was in my one-bedroom apartment trying to be busy,” Comely says. “But really, I knew that I was avoiding things.”
See, nine months earlier, Jason’s wife had left him.
“She … found someone that was taller than I was — had more money than I had. … So, yeah.”
And since then, Jason had really withdrawn from life. He didn’t go out, and he avoided talking to people, especially women.
Jason decided to accept the Lewd Word of Game into his life, and began a program of desensitizing himself to social rejection, all in hopes that by conquering — or more practically, managing — his fear of rejection he would have an easier time approaching women and hitting on them for eventual fornication and lovingkindness.
“I had to get rejected at least once every single day by someone.”
He started in the parking lot of his local grocery store. Went up to a total stranger and asked for a ride across town.
“And he looked at me, like, and just said, ‘I’m not going that way, buddy.’ And I was like, ‘Thank you!’
“It was like, ‘Got it! I got my rejection.’ ”
Jason had totally inverted the rules of life. He took rejection and made it something he wanted — so he would feel good when he got it.
This is essentially the Inner Game concept known colloquially as “having an abundance mentality with women”. By reducing his fear of rejection — neutering it by morphing it into a game — Jason simultaneously increases his feeling of abundance. Immersion therapy like he’s doing is an effective method to cultivate that crucial abundance mentality. Once rejection means so little, a man begins to believe, rightly, that his sexual market options have greatly expanded. Once he thinks this way, his mental state gets telegraphed through his nonverbal and verbal behavior, and women swoon in response.
“Approach 100 women in a month” has merit as a task for game newbies.
“And it was sort of like walking on my hands or living on my hands or living underwater or something. It was just a different reality. The rules of life had changed.”
Many men who get good at the art of applied charisma say this about the world they inhabit: that it feels like a different reality. And it is; much different than what the mediocre masses of men will ever experience.
Jason kept on seeking out rejection. And as he did, he found that people were actually more receptive to him, and he was more receptive to people, too. “I was able to approach people, because what are you gonna do, reject me? Great!”
People instinctively admire, even submit to, bold men.
So what has Jason learned from all this?
That most fears aren’t real in the way you think they are. They’re just a story you tell yourself, and you can choose to stop repeating it. Choose to stop listening.
The essence of the alluringly overconfident man.
Now, NPR, filled to the rectal brim with echo chamber liberal pussies, would not favorably feature a story unless they agreed wholly or partly with the premise. So I consider this a major capitulation by liberal pussies to those awful PUAs and misogynists who propose game as a romantic solution for men seeking love.
