Reader Mr. Meaner passes along a text convo with a girl that stands as an excellent example of solid reframing and grace under pressure,
Here’s a text convo I had with a Tinder girl:
Her: Hey, how’s it going?
Me: you look like a nice one
Her: What is that supposed to mean?
Me: a nice fish… a nice GIRL! what did you think it meant.
Her: I didn’t like the way it came across. Word of advice, be more respectful and you may get further.
Me: slow down, i need to be wined and dined first.
Her: Haha oh I see, you’re a traditional lass then?
Most beta males would’ve shrunk in shame and apologetics when the girl demanded respect. Mr. Meaner reframed into the classic “I am the one being chased” theme. This promptly tipped her off that she was dealing with a man who “gets it”, a devil-may-care alpha male, and her attitude dissipated as her poon petals flowered.
