Buddy: “Yo, what happened with the girl you met on Saturday?”
You: “I got her number. Texted her on Tuesday.”
Buddy: “Nice. And?”
You: “Nah. I mean it’s only been three days. I know she’s really busy with work. She works at Google, and you know working there can be a bitch.”
Buddy: “What did you text her?”
You: “I wrote…’Hey, it’s Derek, we met on Sat. Wanna grab drinks Thursday after work?’”
Buddy: “As in yesterday?”
You: “Yeah, but it’s cool because I know she takes yoga pretty often, so I’m sure she was occupied with that yesterday.”
Buddy: “Right, ’cause it’s hard to type out a ‘yes’ or ‘no’ when you’re in down doggie style.”
You: “I believe it’s ‘down dog.’ Thanks. And shit, she might be out of town for work, I know she travels a lot for her job. Whatever, I texted her again yesterday to see if she’s in town on Saturday. Nothing back yet, but if anything she’s just playing games.”
Buddy: “Yeah, playing games as in ignoring you?”
You: “No, she’s just making me work for it. I like that. Feisty. Or maybe she didn’t get the text. She doesn’t have an iPhone, so you know how crappy the other phones are.”
Buddy: [NO RESPONSE]
You: “Dude, she’s a cool girl. Not like the rest. She has a busy life. I think she’s also involved with some sort of volunteer organization. And her friends from out of town may still be here. I’ll probably give her a call this weekend.”
What does a PR agent do? They cover up their client’s mistakes, highlight the positive points, and distract the public from the truth. For example, when Tom Cruise jumped on Oprah’s couch like a chimpanzee, PR statements were put out staying he was preparing for a new movie role. When Kobe was accused of rape, PR statements described him as a “responsible” man who got involved in a conspiracy. But guess what, you’re not doing PR for the girl you’re pursuing. Deep down, you know when you’re being rejected, when she’s being a bitch, and when she’s not interested, but for some reason, some of you still feel the need to DEFEND her. Especially in front of your friends. Stop making excuses for her because it doesn’t do you any good either. In the above scenario, you should just face the truth: she’s clearly not interested but gave you her number because she likes the attention. But c’mon, no response after 2 texts? That’s just disrespectful and rude. You shouldn’t have to defend that fact.
So next time, you find yourself defending some chick you’re chasing after, ask yourself, “Do I actually believe this statement?” And if you don’t, you better fucking be paid for your PR blitz.
