Those of you who know me, know that normally, my responses to blogs are usually just me throwing out a bit of levity.

Now and then, a subject will be posted that I may take a certain level of interest in that could be considered in a serious vein....

Such was the case recently, when a blog was posted regarding being "Successful with Women".....The entire blog set off an emotional response within me, thereby creating my need to respond thusly:

Comment:
Sounds like a simple case of Using Women...

I've been "successful" with women all my life.....Funny, I always thought it was because I treated them with respect, as individuals, and was openly honest and up-front about everything.......(sigh)....Guess you are never too old to learn

The Author responded with:
Thank you for your comment. It would be great if you could elaborate on this, because I don't really know what you mean. Also see my public answer to your comment.

Cheers,

If the the entire purpose of forming a frindship with anyone is what they can do to help you be more attractive to members of the opposite sex, then am I wrong in viewing this as an abuse of friendship?
With Friendship also comes a certain level of responsibility......and that includes being an "emotional tampon" for them if the need arises.

OK.....I've had my rant....back to the sandbox, kiddies.........

Actually the best friends I have are women. I am friends with them because we enjoy each others company and we can count on each other if the shit hits the fan. I'm really not interested in having sex with them. I have a couple of male friends as well and I'm not interested in having sex with them either.

It seems like an explanation of what an emotional tampon is and isn't would be appropriate.

An emotional tampon is someone that lets a woman emotionally bleed all over him, only to be thrown away after that and maybe picked up and reused again when the woman needs to emotionally bleed on someone the next time.

It is not someone who has a true friendship with someone, a friendship that is rewarding for both parts, including caring for his friends (female or not).

Other than that, I agree. If someone were to be friends with women ONLY to pick up women, it's not truly friendship. It is not (to quote myself from the blog) to "[t]ruly be friends with women, hang out and have fun, help them pick up guys, interact with them, truly get to know them and respect them."

Hope the meaning of my post is more clear for you now :-)

Set off the same kind of response in me....and he may be confident of his "abilities", but his essay totally turn me off.

That's ok, girlcountry. I don't expect everyone to agree with me (or to like my profile for that matter).
