What Does It All Mean?
On today’s show . . .
How To Handle Rejection
Girl-watching. It’s like a shot of wheatgrass, isn’t it? It makes a man feel good. But it can also be frustrating–right, guys?–if you wanna do more than just enjoy the feeling. And that leads to our next piece, about rejection. Yes, it’s what we guys routinely go through when approaching women.
In most of the world, men are still expected to make the first move. And we’re expected to handle rejection with grace — to shake it off, to take it like a man, to get up and dust ourselves off and, well . . . try again. I can’t tell you how many women I’ve talked to over the years about this who are astonished to hear that most men are terrified of approaching women. And that most men, as a result, experience tremendous amounts of humiliation. We beat ourselves up for not approaching women. Then we’re infuriated by the inevitable rejections.
There’s a phrase in the Online Men’s Dating Community–and yes, ladies, such a thing does exist–and that phrase is AFC, or Average Frustrated Chump. And that is, sadly, what most of us (including myself) are. But the first step out of any psychological quagmire is honesty. Rigorous honesty.

Scratchers” — little questions that won’t go away. It’s the little things in life, as they say, that . . . whatever. Mean the most, make us happy, drive us crazy.
