A great follow-up to my previous post, The Last Psychiatrist has a must-read piece on the Scott Adams topic:
Not being able to easily and fluidly pick up women is maddeningly destructive to many men, not tempered by other successes in their lives. We hear the refrain that media images create unrealistic expectations of women to be hot, etc, but the flip side is that some men can’t understand why everyone else seems to be able to hook up easily, freely, fun-ly, while they’re in the corner all boiling rage. Confronted with this, they have two choices: I’m inadequate, or the Matrix is against me. Men who don’t want to kill themselves choose B.
