Boys are stupid throw rocks at them

Perhaps the folks at David & Goliath were right.

I was googling "how to approach" and "approach tips" last night, and I couldn't help but notice something:

Most of the hits were articles about seducing, picking up and getting numbers from women.

Actually, they weren't even articles. Most were one page sales letters or extended pictches for seduction ebooks, 6 CD or 12 DVD attraction kits, workshops and the like that promise to teach you How To Approach Any Woman, Anywhere And Know Exactly What To Say To Get Her To Give You Her Number And Go On A Date With You - NOW.

Don't worry. I'm not player hating. If this stuff works, good on ya.

BUT HERE'S MY THEORY: ever since the release of Neil Strauss's (amazing) book The Game, the underground world of pick-up artists, seduction gurus and attraction experts has TOTALLY exploded.

I'm not saying this is bad. Most of the information published on seduction-based approachability (most, I say), is well researched, lucid and thought provoking.

But here's what I think is really, really funny:

If you google the phrase approaching women, 101,000 hits come up.

But, if you google the phrase approaching men, only 16,000 hits come up.

Hmm. Interesting.

What do you this that means?
