Observations, 10 years in the Making

Last night, I meet an old friend out for drinks. I have known DB for a long time close to 10 years; we went to college together and have kept in touch throughout the years. He is lawyer turned political media guy who has spends a lot time on the road like I do. In college, I never understood why women liked him, he was mean, but last night I finally got it. He’s freaking hilarious, but not in a joke telling way. Like most guys, he talks likes to talk trash with the fellows and he gives everyone a hard time even women, but with women he won’t let up. Once he finds a little nerve or insecurity in a woman, he slowly bounces on it over and over again and women eat it up. From an outsider point of view, you would think what a jerk, why is this girl taking this guy crap.

It hit me last night that DB had mixture cocky/funny and negs going on, but he has always had it. It’s a part of his personality. Last night, I saw so many guys do what did when I was in college when DB was giving a girl a hard time eventually the girl will turn to some guy and say something like “Are my hands too big?” and of course hoping to score some points the guys would say “Naw, you got beautiful hands…blah, blah, blah … Can I buy you a drink?” and girl takes the drink talks for a minute and returns to DB, who continues to give her a hard time. I was completely having an outer body experience watching this take place.

Something click, it was like DB was pitching softballs to hit out of the park, when a girl would turn to me and to ask was like such and such, I would kick it up a level eventually they would find someone else to valid them, but kept coming back for some more. When I left I had gotten six numbers, DB was still doing his thing.

What an experience!!! It was amazing and it only took 10 years to understand what was going on.

It's amazing how cocky can be both a turn off and hot at the same time.

hahaha, you've so eloquently described how I bumbled into most of my conquests for the longest time.

I ask you the question, is it really abuse if it's what they really want?
