Love or Money

Do love experts work? It's a year round profession for pick up artists and professional bad boys. Well, folks, I've tried them all and I have had fewer girlfriends than Hitler.

Maybe more appropriate for AskMefi?
Just a thought.

Hitler had a lot of girlfriends, actually. I wouldn't try to be like him though.

I recall someone's experiment a few years ago of taking a portrait of Hitler, photoshopping out the Nazi insignias and his moustache, dying his hair blond, then putting him up on HotOrNot. Rated fairly highly, as I recall.

aeschenkarnos, thanks for mentioning that - it sounded interesting. The thread was this one, but the link didn't work anymore. So I had to run it through the Wayback Machine. Just in case anyone else is curious about it.

Hitler on hotornot was good, a good example showing appearance is nothing to assess people by. Why do people post their pics there, really? What's fun about that? I don't get it.

Hitler was a ladykiller.
Please pretend I didn't just cave into the dark side & actually make that joke. It would be much appreciated. Thank you.

I disagree. What they look like is the major way to assess a person's physical attractiveness. Suitability as a partner is a subsequent question. If you don't consider them physically attractive, the question of their suitability doesn't come up.

Alternatively, you could meet them in some way where you reverse the process (eg internet dating, through WoW, old-fashioned correspondence romance, arranged marriages); even so, if you found them physically repulsive, I doubt there'd be much future in it.

Why do people post their pics there, really? What's fun about that? I don't get it.

When we are free to do as we wish, we normally imitate each other. Comparison is one of the interaction particles of society. It's also fun to flex our intellectual muscles here, and compare ourselves; I think in some ways, MetaFilter and similar forums are a big game of "amismartornot" with some "amifunnyornot" added into it.

True for you, I suppose.
I'd say once you find out how wonderful they are irrespective of appearance, they can suddenly become very attractive. Well, that's how it worked for me, anyway, but I don't trust easily or get seduced by anything easily, be it looks, intelligence, wealth, whatever.

I wonder if this guy would get a high rating on hotornot. Well, I don't really. I just think kindness, playfulness and loving eyes are the most attractive things that are at least partly visual.

As far as the sexual part of attractiveness, that comes into play at the appropriate time -- well, not with Tenzin Gyatso, heh. Making it the starting point is just a trick of Mother Nature or some kind of a bad habit.

I was really expecting this to be a link to The Mr. T Experience's classic Even Hitler Had a Girlfriend.

There is something which I have discovered, outside the sphere of bad boys and gas chambers. Women are attracted to the magnet of my daring, charm, and free flowing Benjamins.

CO, can you really say you've tried them all? There's so freaking many! Are you saying you've read The Game and watched all the videos from Ross, Mystery, David D and Xuma? If you really spend an hour a day for 90 days doing that and reading the various written materials from all of those people out there I really don't think you can fail. You could also try finding a lair near where you live and meet up with some of those guys.

There's been other threads on MeFi about this before and people are really polarized about it and will give you shit when you talk about it, but it really comes down to that same old AA mantra: It works if you work it and it don't if you don't.

dilettante: Thanks for the blast from the past. I'd forgotten how funny that was:

Sorry! I gave you a 6 because your pretty good looking. But I would fuck Hitler like an animal. Really, I would suck that cock until his other testicle fell off too. You shouldnt have made him look so hot friend.

This is an example of the great advice they are handing out for $200 an hour.

"That day I did very smooth approaches in the coffee shop. I got two number closes in a row from two sets, with direct style, grabbing my chair going to the table and slamming the chair down so I get all the fu***ing attention from the chicks, and then I say to the one chick I wanted "YOU are the CHOSEN one!"..."
