Some guys just don’t ‘count’ for women. They can hook up with them, date them… and yet, the guys still don’t count. Why do women do this, and how can you be a ‘doesn’t count’ guy yourself?
There was a thing I set out to do early on in my journey into seduction. I couldn’t then have put it into words. But I knew what it looked like. I wished:
To be a guy women pined for, instead of the one doing the pining
To be able to walk into a room and seduce the woman I wanted
Women to expect nothing from me yet desire me just the same
Women to be genuinely surprised if I chose to keep them as girlfriends
To be a man the normal rules of dating did not apply to
There are different ways to name this. One might be to say I wanted all the power in the male-female courtship dynamic. The power to choose, seduce, and decide. And sure, you could say that was true. But that’s true of most people. Most people – men and women alike – look for ways to increase their power in the courtship dance. They want to be more liked, more loved, more adored; to better be able to pick and choose the mates they want, and captures those mates’ hearts and minds.
Another way to name what I wanted, though, was to be a guy who ‘didn’t count’.
The phrase ‘doesn’t count’ can apply to lots of things. However, the way women usually use it when talking about men they’ve had romantic involvements with is to describe men they want to erase from their histories: “He didn’t count.” “That guy didn’t count.” “Oh, Jim? He doesn’t count.”
That was the guy I wanted to be.
The one who ‘didn’t count’.
