A while ago I was hanging out with some old friends. We went to a nearby bar, where, eventually, something quite remarkable happened. A woman was walking in with a guy who seemed to be her boyfriend. After they had gotten their drinks, she turned his back to him, so that she was now facing the barkeeper. This made her guy feel uncomfortable, so he positioned himself sideways as well. She was no longer looking at him. At that point, I began to pay closer attention to them.
What happened next was downright bizarre. The guy tried to kiss her, and judging from his position, it must have been uncomfortable for him, both emotionally and physiologically, to do so. She at first leaned in, then moved away, looking sternly at him and wiggling her index finger to indicate that he should behave. He tried kissing her again, and the scene repeated itself. It seemed as if he was being trained like a dog. That was bad enough already. After his third try, she seemingly gave in, but only gave him a peck on his lips. No, PUA morons, this is not an example of the "power of persistence".
At that point, I alerted my buddies to what was going on. I filled them in, to their great bemusement. Well, eventually that dude disappeared. It wasn’t quite clear whether he had gone to the bathroom or left the place altogether, since his girl turned away as he was saying something to her. She was then playing with the straw on her drink, slowly sucking on it, and then flicking her hair. It took about ten seconds before the first guy approached her. Suddenly she was all playful and laughing. It wasn’t clear whether they exchanged digits, but she was acting very warmly towards him. He walked off after about a minute, and she had a big smile on her face.
One of my buddies hit me with his elbow and said, “Mind if I take this one, since you’re out of the game?” Not waiting for me to answer, he got up and walked over to her. Basically the same scene repeated itself. He did the ‘handshake thing’, and what emerged was one of those overly long handshakes, where she was smiling at him and giving him ‘fuck me’ eyes. She told him she was “inconvenienced” right now, but promptly gave him her number. My buddy said he might text her, in case he got bored. He didn't think much of her, given how she was behaving.
Several minutes had passed now, so I thought her guy really had left the place. I didn’t pay attention to her for a while, but the next time I was looking around, a third guy was hitting on her. That chick seemed to have mastered the art of attracting guys by suggestively sucking her straw. The same scene repeated itself. At my table we were quite bemused by this. But suddenly things got very interesting, because her boyfriend came back. Maybe he had to queue in front of the restroom, or he had thought he had grown some balls and decided to come back.
I was quite curious to see what would happen now. What happened was that the chick basically ignored her boyfriend, and kept flirting with the other guy. Her body language was open towards her new suitor, and her back was turned towards the guy she came with. Meanwhile, the other guy was standing close to that chick, so that her boyfriend (?) just stood there like a moron. He then meekly put his hand on her lower back, in fact just his fingertips, to which she didn’t react much. At one point I noticed the other guy introducing himself to that hapless loser. Thankfully, some people do have manners.
She then kept talking to and, seemingly, flirting with the new guy. She couldn’t quite change who she was, though, so at one point she slightly turned away from both of them and ignored them, so that the two dudes felt compelled to make awkward smalltalk. Eventually, she engaged her new suitor again, though. I wasn’t following them actively, but at one point he was gone, and a little bit later, that woman left with her loser-boyfriend, too. He might have felt embarrassed, but he didn’t call her out on her bullshit or anything like that. If anything, he seemed happy that there now was no other guy around to compete with. Sure, he didn't know that she had been flirting with two other guys behind his back, but the last encounter he did fully witness. I was wondering whether that guy had any self-respect.
I then wondered how incredibly pussified a guy had to be to take that kind of bullshit from a woman. That girl was certainly good-looking, but far from top-shelf quality, and she seemed to be in the later years of her prime, too. However, she was craving so much for attention that she dragged her boyfriend to a bar in which mostly dudes hang out, slightly older ones to be a bit more precise, so that she could feel desired again. Why on earth would you want to have anything to do with that chick? It's questionable whether you'd even want to pull her just for a one-night stand.
What could you seriously expect from a woman like that? Sure, you could now say that her boyfriend should “alpha up” and put her in her place, but how much fun is it to reeducate a spoiled child? I view personality as mostly fixed, after a certain age, so no "alpha" in the world will be able to correct the failings of her parents --- given that this happened in Sweden it's quite likely that she was raised by a single mother ---, and the bullcrap she's been exposed to due to growing up in a feminist society. Much smaller signs of disrespect should be reason enough to drop a woman like a hot potato, but some chick who hits on other guys to assert her alleged superiority? Fuck no!
