    Some of the buttons don't work

    I've been acquainted with Jane for years. I see her at the bar every - I dunno - couple of months or so. I've been going there 20 years: you get to know - or at least recognise - the regulars. If seeking out people once every couple of weeks disqualifies you as a ghost, then I'm disqualified :P .

    Jane and me tried to have sex once. I was dressed up in my good pants, she was last at the bar. We went back to her place, but were too drunk to slip the bone in (as in, more of a novelty toy rubber bone than actual bone).

    Jane has made it fully, abundantly clear that we ain't ever going to be boning again. Props for that at least.

    Jane has a business. Jane has a website. Jane's website - well - ain't running so good. Apparently, some of the buttons "don't work". Jesus. The way that that happens is when a person installs a swag of stuff they don't understand and expect it to go. She sent out some feelers.

    It's a strange feeling, gentlemen, to be looking at a woman angling to get your help, and thinking to yourself as she is standing there telling me about her problems, "No fucking way am I getting anywhere near your tar-baby of a website". I'm nodding, listening attentively, and thinking "do you even realize that I have already written off any possibility of helping you in the slightest?".

    If she was smoking the bone, well then yes, I'd do what I could. But to friendzone me and think I'm going to spend hours doing what I normally charge $100/hr for, and be blamed forever for the slightest little thing that goes wrong with her little online shop, spending the next ten years on-call for free? No. Simply no.

    This strange feeling: how do describe it. Power? No, not that - not strength or a "Captain of my soul, master of my fate" feeling. An odd sadness, really, that you get when you see the world for what it is and know that you are doing so. Possibilities lost forever.

    But in the end, it's ok. It's ok. Better than the alternative, being lost and blind and led by people who do not have your interests at heart.

    I can see clearly now, the rain is gone,
    I can see all obstacles in my way
    Gone are the dark clouds that had me blind
    It's gonna be a bright (bright), bright (bright)
    Sun-Shiny day.

    Sounds like some of your "buttons" aren't working any more. She pushes them ... and ... nothing.

    Yeah, we can feel wistful about the "lost tingles," but freedom is worth far more than "tingles!"

    Good for you for not falling into the Joe Joe The Monkey Errand Boy trap. Especially not an expensive errand guy. While women do this a lot, men can do this too. No favors at a nominal cost or for free. Though, hell, if it's a good friend, I am sure you'd see solving a tech problem on his PC like someone would doing a crossword puzzle or finishing off a Rubik's Cube.

    The funny thing is that you aren't the one showing signs of some power trip. In a strange way it's the other way around. I mean, at the very least on a subconscious level. And yeah, let one of her beta orbiter chumps do her those boyfriend favors of furniture moving/free tech guy.

    I remember in 2013 an ex-girlfriend asking if I'd help her move her furniture and other belongings from her apartment that she got evicted from back to her Dad's house.. I said, "only if you'll pay me $20." That she did. And it felt good not to be doing boyfriend favors for a woman who did not try hard enough to satisfy her now ex-boyfriend, myself, half a year before I dumped her and demoted her to a FWB (Friends With Benefits).

    Re: Some of the buttons don't work

    Woman says "Gee, I have a lot of really heavy furniture to move... can you help?"
    I say "Sure I can. I googled movers. Here are three rated 5 stars in your area."

    Woman says "Gee, my neighbours are on me about the fence again... can you help?"
    I say "Sure I can. I googled painters. Here are three rated 5 stars in your area."

    Woman says...

    You see, women think "You're going to do this for me and do it for free because I flirted with you." Or just because... vagina.

    The woman batting her eyes and saying please is the act of her shamelessly alluding to the female privilege that consists of vagina=free stuff + free labor. Men who smile and say "Yeah, good luck with all that..." then finish their drink and leave... They're real men. Men who spend all Saturday moving some bitches furniture while the studs who regularly service her play golf... They're not men at all.

    I find it ironic that some feminists are SO against prostitution, yet every time women resort to using the only leverage they really HAVE over men (vagina) it's prostitution whether it's husband and wife, colleague to colleague, or friend to acquaintance. When women use their sexual privilege to procure goods and services, they are whores. Not honest whores that sell sex for cash on the street corner, but cunningly, manipulative whores who, for some reason, do not want people to think/know they are whores. Thus the contempt common women have for the common whore: women KNOW they use their sexual privilege for leverage with men, but they want to deny it and bury it and dress it up in a 1000 different ways. "You have money I have sex let's swap." is NOT one of those ways.

    The biggest whores on planet earth are the ones denying their husbands sex as punishment for not complying with their wishes.

    The biggest whores on planet earth are housewives, or women with dozens of "guy friends" or "male buddies" (beta orbiters and pussy beggars).

    Next time she asks for help moving, give her a cost benefit analysis:

    - If you move her, you lose 6 hours on a Saturday, get a GEE THANKS and maybe a slice of mediocre pizza for your trouble.
    - If you do NOT move her, and work at your stock and trade, even for $50/hr, you have $300. For $300 you can get your needs met at a rub and tug for $200, GOOD pizza and nice cold beer for $50 and still have $50 left over for groceries.

    Ever notice when bitch is in heat she's no where to be seen because she's got her legs wrapped around some thug somewhere, but as soon as she needs help moving, or with money, or with rehab, or with her kid, or with her health... the studs are nowhere to be seen.

    My favorite line is: "Where is that guy you've been fucking? Doesn't he have a truck/job/bank-account?"
    And her response is usually: "He's an asshole. He's unemployed. He ran off with Jane."
    My next favorite line is: "You need to be more selective about who you fuck darling."
    And her response is usually: "I thought you were a nice guy!"

    Ever notice with a female when you deny her of her every wish and whim, you're no longer nice? When you're compliant you're nice? And when you're not compliant you're an asshole?

    Ever notice that only men are capable of judging you on your moral fortitude and your actions, but women only view you in terms of your usefulness, and then frame you in terms of morality to make them sound less like petulant children?

    Here is what I say:

    "I am not an asshole because I won't do what you want. You're an asshole for calling people assholes who refuse to pander to you."

    Women need to be called out on being the assholes they often are.
    And when they're exchanging winks and hugs and "pleeeeeeeease" for goods/services they're whores.

    Women need to be called what they are at all times. Fuck feminism. Fuck political correctness.

    A whore is a whore and an asshole is an asshole.

    Nicely written … It is indeed a strange feeling when you see the world for what it is!

    Re: Some of the buttons don't work

    If she is truly your friend, then she will do favors for you in return for helping her and will want to spend time with you for simple things like shooting the rbeeze.

    Anything else, she is not your friend and is just using you for free stuff.

    Same thing for guys.

    The only thing most people care about is self gratification.

    Re: Some of the buttons don't work

    A real friend will start conversations, from time to time, with:

    "We haven't just hung out in too long. Let's go for coffee."

    or

    "Hey... what's wrong. I can tell something is wrong."

    Even if manginas, white knights, beta orbiters and pussybeggars have friends, they will ditch them in a second for even the most remote chance for even a whiff of the sacred gash.

    And their friends, being real friends, will understand and be there for them when the b1tch they idolize finally shames them in front of their entire social circle. Or just uses them one too many times.

    Friends don't let friends beg for pussy. But they don't stop being your friend if you do. They SHOULD, but they don't.

    Re: Some of the buttons don't work

    Insidious_Sid's long post reminds me of this conversation attributed (perhaps falsely) to Winston Churchill:

    At a dinner party Churchill says to his dinner companion, "Madam, would you sleep with me for five million pounds?"


    The woman responds, "My goodness, Mr. Churchill. I suppose I would."


    Churchill replies, "Would you sleep with me for five pounds?"


    She answers, "Mr. Churchill, what kind of woman do you think I am?"


    Churchill answers, "Madam, we've already established that. Now we are haggling about the price."
    Apparently women don't see a woman as a whore as long as she takes the man for everything she can.

    It isnt that she is trying to lure me to do work by offering sex. It's the opposite - she is not offering sex, and would like me to do the work.

    Time to set a boundary. You've got two choices here:

    1. Be a dickless boyfriend who does favors for free

    2. Demands a few hundred

    3. Say "sorry I can't help you unless you give me at LEAST $700!

    "It's the opposite - she is not offering sex, and would like me to do the work."

    Right. They *CAN* use sex or even simple flirting or teasing as bait. But women feel so entitled to the labor and resources of men, they will just expect it. I have a website that won't work, here - men - come fix it for me, for free. Women are also socialist as hell, so they think that men should just do free work for the hive. The believe because they are raising five kids from five men that they are doing THEIR part, in the "Village it takes to raise children", so you too much contribute.

    Well, that's not how it works.

    There is no free stuff. There is no free ride. We're all EQUAL NOW, right? You can't smash the family unit with patriarchy theory but then run back to chivalry and female privilege when the situation arises. Ladies need to hand in their "Strong and Inependent Woman (tm) Card" when they use men to do things they could be doing themselves, or paying for themselves.
