Having said that, I will now point out there are quite a few people who just can’t stand me.
Among women, it’s the unattractive ones (sometimes downright hideous), sometimes fat, sometimes scrawny, sometimes never married, sometimes divorced, who despise me. Attractive ones have always been friendly towards me. Not one attractive woman has ever “shit-tested” me, including the ones I’ve been involved with.
It’s why “shit tests” don’t exist. It’s an evo-psych concept created by the ignorant. If it does exist, it’s the bottom of the barrel that has always done to me. It’s always the unattractive ones – overweight/scrawny, dumb. But they almost always overestimate their attractiveness to men and think they deserve someone way out of their league. And are very often unable to hide their lying and hostility.
Among men, it’s the stupid ones – again bottom of the barrel – who can’t stand me. Especially the really short ones with a bad attitude and the “little man complex.” The smart ones always like me.
It’s an example of “birds of a feather flock together.” Among men and women it’s called Associative Mating.
I’ve never really had an explanation for this hatred of me. Perhaps the brain waves radiating from my head are disrupting their dim-watt IQs. Maybe it’s the way I look (I once had a woman tell me, “You just have one of the faces you just can’t forget”). And it’s not like I look like Brad Pitt.
Humphrey Bogart (not that I’m comparing myself to him) had the same problem. He said that most people didn’t like him, and he had no idea why.
I also noticed, starting in college, that there were some women who were interested in me when I wasn’t interested in them, so they began to hate me. That’s when I realized the truth of that old saying, “Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned.” They see nothing wrong with not being interested in a man and if he’s interested in her, then that, these days, that’s sexual harassment.
And if she’s interested in him but he’s not interested in her, then that too, these days, is sexual harassment. When women feel scorned, their revenge a lot of the time involves lying about sex and relationships. Although to them, it’s not lying. They delude themselves they’re telling the truth.
I’ve had more than one woman tell lies about me in an attempt to hurt me. That last one was a scrawny unattractive spinster whose life consisted of looking out her drapes and before that a pudgy, unattractive divorced middle-aged woman.
If you’re nice to a dog it’s going to love you. If you’re nice to a human, who knows what the fuck is going to happen. Perhaps that’s why dogs are referred to as “Man’s best friend.”
Maybe that’s why, generally speaking, I prefer dogs to people.
