2. Be polite and respectful.
I’ll likely be refuting a lot of the advice you’ve heard, but let me start with this one: Women do not prefer assholes over good guys.
Assholes may get women, but do they keep them? Do they build long-term, healthy, mutually beneficial relationships with them? No.
To not be an asshole, make sure you’re always being polite and respectful. She should be someone you want to date, not a Kleenex you throw away once you’re done using it.
I never understood this Tara. In order to attract most women you may need to be aloof, not caring basically hard to get. An asshole as you put it. The guys who put up this persona of tough and non caring seem to do better. Other men see this and they don't believe how effective it is.
Later on you can be more of yourself, caring and considerate. I don't make the rules, I just follow them.
