It’s funny… when you’re sitting blissfully in your bubble of ignorance, just happily plodding along without giving life too much thought, everything seems pretty simple.
You do what you do, other people do what they do, and you just keep moving.
Yeah, there are problems every now and again, but you deal with them and move on.
It’s only once you start to dig and try and find solutions that everything becomes so much more complicated.
For example, today I decided that I was going to learn a little bit how to get my wife a bit more excited about ‘adult’ activities. Don’t get me wrong, there’s nothing wrong with our sex life, it’s just that it could always be better, you know what I mean?
So I started doing a bit of Googling to see what I could turn up.
I successfully managed to find the biggest group of weirdo’s I’d ever come across. They call themselves ‘Pick-up Artists’. What a bunch of wankers!
Apparently they like to parade around in platform shoes with black eye makeup and nail polish in fluffy hats trying to trick women into sleeping with them using these shitty magic tricks.
All sounds a bit bullshit to me.
So I kept Googling and I found this other site about attracting women and being more alpha called The Attraction Institute. And this is where my head started to get a bit messy…
First of all, I liked the fact that they thought the pick up artist stuff was as weird as I did, but as I started to read more, I got to see a little more of what was going on.
They’re pretty into the deep stuff – looking at why you’re doing what you’re doing and how it’s messing with your life.
I spent about an hour there and by the end of it, I felt like the worst person on earth. Not in a bad way though, it just got me thinking about how much of an arse I’d been to my wife and how badly I’d treated her, all because I wasn’t taking care of my own shit.
It was a pretty big slap in the face to be honest because they just lay it all out there for you to see.
Day 1, huh? This is going to be a tough ride.
I’ve got some thinking and then some apologising to do. I’ll let you know how it goes.
