The Way of the Superior Man by David Deida allowed me to get the girl I want and keep her. I know, like "How to Win Friends" it has a terrible title but it's an amazing look into the way men and women interact and how to be a true man in this world without being a dick.

> It's their way of testing your love, by being as argumentative and annoying as possible and still have you stay with her

I'm more willing to believe the interpretation I got from a New Age guru, though, admittedly, I've expanded on it somewhat by adding a bit of evolutionary psychology. Take this as my interpretation rather than verbatim from the author.

What she's doing is the way a woman tests her man's manhood. She's provoking you in order to see if you'll be able to keep your cool, or at the very least, continue to assert yourself, rather than backing down to her irrational acts.

Think of it in the context of evolution. Women need a man for the safety of both herself and her brood. The world isn't safe. In fact, the world is a place of cruel whim. A man can have the best laid plans and work hard for them, but the world will throw a monkey wrench his way. He has to be able to take that in stride and assert his will on the world, rather than crumbling under the pressure.

Now, a woman, in choosing a mate, can't always take the time to observe her man in the world. Of course, success, status, age all give some indication, but there is another way. A woman can simulate the capricious nature of the world. She can be the monkey wrench. If a man can handle her, there's a better chance he can handle the world, and provide her the safety against it that she needs.

That's not to say that women consciously think this all out. It's ingrained in their nature. (Incidentally, it even explains how some women will still stay with men who lose their cool -- violent jerks -- provided the man asserts his will, rather than simply freaking out.)

In short, life's a bitch -- and that explains why women are.

Is the book you were thinking of The Way of the Superior Man by David Deida? The cover matches your description - it's an image of the Vitruvian Man by da Vinci.

It's not about whether you told the truth. No one can make a diagnosis based on what you wrote because it doesn't contain the type of information we'd need.

More importantly, your fact-based approach isn't going to work with your wife. She said you're a narcissist and even if you got a panel of world-class experts to unanimously agree that you aren't, it won't make a damn bit of difference.

I think you should read Way of the Superior Man to understand where your wife is coming from and understand how better to interact with her.

Are you talking to lots of girls?

Until you've talking to lots of girls and getting some field experience under your belt, your feelings have nothing to do with girls nor Seddit, it's just a reflection of your emotions. Take small steps and don't be unfair to yourself.

If you are talking to lots of girls and still have this scarcity mentality about women, then I recommend one or more of the following:

  • Read The Way of the Superior Man for some guidance about where women should fit in for you.

  • Work on being more positive (google Positivity Challenge)

  • Get therapy

    If you are talking to lots of girls and only are feeling this way momentarily, I know that feel, bro. Picking up girls can be frustrating. You stay in it because the payoff is better than the sacrifices you make along the way.

The Way of The Superior Man goes into depth about 'Masculine Polarity'. The folks at RSD seem to think highly of this book. It might prove to be helpful to you.

Let me recommend This book. I don't think that you want what you are describing.

I really benefited from this book: http://www.amazon.com/Way-Superior-Man-Spiritual-Challenges/dp/1889762105

Maybe you will find it helpful. It certainly taught me how to be a lot better in a relationship and how to see things like this from a more emotional perspective.

Read the book <a href="http://www.amazon.com/Way-Superior-Man-Spiritual-Challenges/dp/1889762105" The Way of the Superior Man by David Deida</a>. I used to be the same way as you until I read this book. If you seriously try to implement these techniques, your life will get better! It says its "A Spiritual Guide to Mastering the Challenges of Women, Work, and Sexual Desire" so it goes into many topics. It's a great read and it helps men to understand how women think and what women really mean when they say/do certain things.

Here's another thing. Sex is 99% attitude. Most (but not all) women want a "man" in bed, not a boy. When she gives you push back, she would rather you push back harder, even if she'd never admit it. She wants to see strength and resolve in a partner not sweetness and complicity. Weak men are a HUGE turn-off. Thing is, you probably need to "top" her. If she refuses to use her back massager in front of you? Seriously? Make her use it. Tell her it turns you on. If she balls up, climb on her and use it on her. Pin her wrists. Bite her neck. She wont tolerate oral or foreplay? Tell her its not up to her. Will she get mad? Sure. Will she threaten to end everything over this? Yeah. Will she? HELL NO! Call her bluff. And she'll be so much happier once you're in control and she can stop worrying. No more talking. No more being unhappy with things. You've got it covered.

Are you not up to this? Maybe you should date more. Could I be wrong about her and she's really just a cold fish and not a bottom waiting to be topped? Sure. But then she'll really break up with you and your problem is solved.

Oh: man boot-camp for wimps


Edit: There is a fine line here. Don't cross it. You want to take control, not violate her. But realize you need to be ready to walk out or have her walk out on you if she won't let you be in charge. If you are not ready for that she'll sense it, you will cow, and nothing will change.
