Like listening to the audio? You can now get The Book of Pook as an Audiobook! (Over 13 hours of human narration - FAR superior to the machine generated TTS on this site!)
We also recommend checking out Pook's other book, "The Pook Manifesto" Audiobook (Over 15 hours of human narration). It is longer, contains more ideas, and is a lot of fun to listen to. If you like the Book of Pook, you will love this one.
Long long ago, before I found this website and all, I did have female friends. Currently, I have no female friends as female friends seem to be an impossibility for me now.
Every girl I *try* to be friends with wants to date me, screw me, etc. But what about girls who already have a guy, including wives and girlfriends? Same story.
“Do not brag, Mr. Pook! You have the opposite of the AFC problem.”
No, it is something else entirely. Men and women view love and relationships very differently.
Husbands, steady boyfriends, and chivalrous males hate me because I am free. I don’t have to go to the girlfriend’s house and to keep her company because she “feels alone”. I don’t have to go see her stupid family, engage whatever rituals she comes up with. I can leave my place when I desire, return when I desire, meet anyone I wish, do anything I please. Many of these males, I suspect, married very young and never fulfilled their adventure of life.
Since I have so much more available time (since I’m not spending it all on a fiance or wife’s incessant desires), I am investing it in myself. I’m not better than these guys, but I end up wittier, fitter, more worldly, because of this additional time. Since I’m more of a ‘developed male’, so to say, perhaps they have more interest?
One thing is for sure, women do NOT see dating as ‘friendship with sex’. Behind that pleasant baby-like face march the thoughts she has had for her entire life. Your role, as a ‘man’, is to work for her your entire life. Ask older men, married and divorced, for verification if you’re skeptical. This is why women will see your material goods and ambitions, never your intellect, your interest in discovery, the universe, etc.
I would say the biggest difference between friendship and dating is addiction.
“Did he say addiction?” Yes, he did. Friendship carries on due to similar interests, having fun, and so on. Dating/marriage occurs and ensues due to addiction. Some guys suspect that it is sex that the guys are addicted to. This misses the mark. We have been so conditioned to find females in our presence normal, that when they are not there, it becomes abnormal. As has been observed, older married couples don’t have sex. So how does the couple keep working? Addiction. This addiction is the addiction of female praise. Even old men will do what they can to please their wives, even when it brings great discomfort to themselves. Some men have become so conditioned that even if the wife does not praise, he takes that as displeasure and immediately starts “doing things” to obtain back the praise. There is a reason why in old couples, if the wife dies first, the man either remarries or dies.
Males have become more religious than ever before. The religion? Romance. The deity? Their self-picked goddess, a young woman. “I will do ANYTHING for women!” the men say. They will easily buy houses that will take them 30 years to pay off just for them. He won’t admit how stupid his woman actually is, so that ‘stupidity’ turns into divinity. He believes his woman is capable of great emotions and abilities because he projects his own emotions and sense of self onto his woman. Woman is shrouded in more mysticism and pomp than any king or pope.
“What! Blasphemy! Blasphemy! Burn the Pook! Burn the Pook!”
Just answer this question: Who is the deity of the DJ Bible? “Why, the Don Juan!” Are you sure? Think long and hard.
