Do you act like a jerk to get dates?
Q: Do you act like a prick on purpose to get dates? A guy told me this works like a charm for him.
A: I've heard that this works for some guys, but it's not for me. I don't understand why any person would want to be treated like crap. - Steve
A: I wouldn't say that being a prick is a babe-lure but I would say that women are often attracted to guys who appear to be disinterested. It's the old "playing hard to get" situation. That said, some women really do want to play the "I can change him" game and do pursue idiots. It's a shame, really. - Mike
A: A prick? No. A challenge? Maybe, to an extent. The key is being yourself while standing up for yourself. Nobody likes a pushover but everyone likes confidence—and if it’s not in your nature to be a jerk, putting on airs will only reflect poorly on you. That said, I think the more pertinent question at play here is whether or not women want what they can’t have. And I’d imagine the answer is most often "Yes," just as it is for men. So if you really want to reel ‘em in, get married! - Chauncy
A: There's a fine line. If you're too much of a nice guy, you'll end up with lots of female friends who "just don't see you that way." But acting like a prick? Even if it worked, you'd have to be an *** to do it. I just try to relax, be myself, and be friendly and interested without seeming too eager. If you get all mixed up in playing games it's too much work and might sabotage something you don't want sabotaged. - Jeff
A: If a girl likes me when I’m a prick, she’s not my kind of girl. My girl is supposed to help me NOT act like a prick. So the answer is, no, never. - Richard
