Since my last article on the rebellious mind dealt with the concepts of uncertainty and unknowableness – topics which are always uncomfortable for us since human beings tend to be “truth seekers” who want a final answer (hence: science, religion, philosophy, etc.) – I figured I’d delve into a topic normally cloaked in unknowableness today too.
Specifically, I want to talk about the conflicts of interest inherent in romance and seduction, some of which are effectively irresolvable.
There are many simpler aspects of meeting and having relationships with women that are resolvable, such as:
- How to ask a girl out
- How to text a girl
- How to get a date
- How to sleep with girls
- How to begin a relationship
- How to manage your relationship
These all fall into tactical, operational, or, in the case of the last three (or a particularly tricky situation on the first three), some degree of strategic.
However, there are problems in romance that are unresolvable because you and the girl simply have end objectives that are too different, or even in active opposition.
These occur at the romance equivalent of “high strategy”, and if yours and hers are diametrically opposed, then one of you must submit his wants to the other’s wants, or the relationship will fail.
I suppose I should caveat then that these are normally unresolvable conflicts of interest – from time to time, one of you may cave to the other and give in to that other’s desire for where the relationship goes (or where it doesn’t go), but unless one party abandons what is in his or her best interests, these conflicts do not resolve in any way other than you and her going your separate ways and meeting other people.
Unless you hack your way around them, which we’ll also talk about (a little later), rather than address them head on again and again and again like what most people try and fail to do.
