Sometimes It’s Silence %^#@?*&!!

(((This one. A scoop! I’m the ONLY one! Ok you too now))

Another look at your relationship – whichever kind – ONLY catch: It’s for exclusive and good friendship relationships and maybe will bleed into familial ties too.
It is not like me to recommend SILENCE for much…BUT when I do… I just do.

Ever suspect your partner of lying? Evasiveness? Cheating? For THAT matter…Do you want a promotion and don’t know how to ask? Or think you deserve a better letter grade for a school/college/university project?
Your KEY to ALL of the above?
Yep. SILENCE.

And HERE is why.
It may be a fatal human flaw…Or maybe just a fatal COMMUNICATION flaw. Human beings. Nearly ALL human beings (except YOU if you follow my lead here! And NO I am NOT teaching anyone HOW to lie more effectively. The opposite actually) So pay attention gals and guys. (Rabbits and Squirrels) Squirrels just TRY to keep up – and read it again if need be.
Most humans CANNOT sit in silence. Silence is SO awkward for the human brain that it just can’t let it happen. Even if it’s only gibberish, a human will speak, laugh, any other utterance or noise just to avoid it. FACT.

SO, knowing that, DO THIS when you want to find out anything. Pay attention kids! (This is the part of our story where I EXPLAIN the point to you.)

The problem you face: You think your partner (Rabbit OR Squirrel) cheated on you last Saturday night. Whether on good authority or you’re just jealous – HERE is how you get the truth Every. Single. Time. You’re going to ask ONE question. Formulate the ONE question in advance so you don’t screw it up! You want it to be both vague AND specific, with defined parts. Without any further explanations….the Question:
Something like this: “When you were out with friends on Saturday, after all your drunken friends and you left the bar…Why did you head over to that guy’s/girl’s place, have sex, and spend the night all tangled up in one another?” The shorter the question the better – as to not allow for argument on details, accusations etc. When you reach the end of your question, SHUT UP! Do not say another word until you’ve gotten an answer.

Silence is your only friend right now. Remember back up there a ways? Humans HAVE to fill silence. HAVE TO. So leave it SILENT! Now the other side will ask questions – DON’T answer any of them. They will try to change the subject, voice objections, make accusations, and even accuse you of the same thing. (Pay attention to details as you silently sit unresponsive. Their accusations and details of those accusations will tell you the story of Saturday night. Just note them – don’t outwardly acknowledge them.

Still silent they must talk. Whether in circles or squares – they will attempt to MAKE you talk. Nope. It will eventually lead to the word BUT. Now you really pay attention cause the TRUTH is on it’s way. You might not BELIEVE or LIKE the things said but stay SHUT UP.

And THAT’S IT. There. Is the truth – Turns out – It WAS out there. Use your new power carefully! If you get the concept – its applications are nearly limitless.

Yes, i’ve said this in the past and I am repeating it now – I partake in the online dating universe. Why bring it up again? I heard one of you in the back of the room blurt. Because, as time clunks along, I learn more and more about this rather secret society. First I will address THAT statement and then track a back to the Dating App Pro.

Yes, it IS a bit of a secret society. Mainly because those of us on one or more of these sites/apps – are embarrassed to be there. The vast majority DO NOT share ‘The Adventure in Lots of Sitting’ in this rather PUBLIC form. Neither here nor there. Back to the big league.

As I mentioned already, it is a society where many know many, and it asks and needs very little socially on the outside. You know that racing heart (not the arrhythmia one) feeling you get when you meet someone knew? Well it’s that on a fairly regular basis – and like nearly every other ‘good feeling’ you can self-administer, we humans get addicted. The rules in there are different than they are out (IRL) In Real Life. I’ve got DOZENS of posts worth of ‘stuff’ being a part of that world. As a guy that asks WAY too many questions, and is ‘addicted’ to learning about the un-learnable human – I guess that I too, am addicted.

Again – from a world with MILLIONS of rabbit holes – another thing for me to be addicted to. Anyway –

Many, many of the members are pros. Meaning fluent in the language, familiar with the paths and the rabbit holes, and enjoys even the uncomfortable, nearly traumatizing, events that happen in the dating world – only daily! Or more. So the pros KNOW a lot of the words and leanings to get any interactions to that addictive, heart racing feeling of a successful date – over and over again. Seemingly NOT hurting anyone, affecting nothing but feeding the addiction.

Obviously NOT TRUE – because REAL humans very often find their way into the winner’s circle only to find out the WIN was nothing but a loss. And SO the circle of dating app life continues. Some of the humans begin work to become a pro – while others just end up hurt and feeling used EVEN on that anonymous internet!

Let’s just jump – LADIES! I’ve heard it many a time – Girls are better than boys. I just want to add a caveat of sorts… Even at so-called ‘boy stuff.” 

Hey! Grrls see more colours than boys can and have more tastebuds too.

Some stats:

Roughly 93 – 97% of pregnant women are pregnant. If you need to read that again – well I had to read that one a couple times too, before repeating the absurd stat here.

Roughly 6 – 10% of incarcerated women are incarcerated. NO TRUTH IN THAT STAT! Actually 6 – 10% are pregnant.

Every 90 seconds a woman dies in childbirth.

It’s been calculated (I don’t know BY WHO) that the ‘average?’ woman will eat about 4 pounds of lipstick in her lifetime.

Ladies’ sense of smell is better than the dumb boys. (AND actually smell better too) 

Finally…

The three highest IQ scores EVER – Yep Girls have both #1 and #2. A DUM boy picked up the third spot.  

So guys… The grrrls rock and the boys kinda suck! Bet on the women Every. Single. Time
