How to Avoid Being Pumped and Dumped if You’re a Woman

This is a guest post by Kid Strangelove. Kid originally published this article at his own blog on February 14, 2012, but he deleted the site a while ago so he could focus on other projects. He asked me if I’d be willing to re-post some of his articles on my blog and I said yes.

“He said he’d call!”

“Everything was going so well!”

“He just disappeared!”

This happens, ladies, and let me tell you why. Most men who talk to you, no matter who they are and where it is, have two intentions:

  1. They want to have sex with you and are attracted to you physically.
  2. They would like to know more about you as a person and might see you as a potential long term partner.

The second happens almost all the time. Many guys are secretly romantic saps waiting on the right girl. However, even if a girl fails that test, we would still like to have sex with you. It’s in our nature. You might not notice the subtle things a guy does to make sure you’re relationship material, but they’re still there.

For me, there is one seemingly innocent phrase that alters my perception of you completely. Not in its context, but in its timing, because if you say this at the wrong time, you are completely disqualified from being girlfriend material. What’s this phrase?

Wait for it…


And what do you do?

Yes, that seemingly innocent phrase has led to more confused women than math and science. And it’s not a bad phrase in and of itself, because after all, it’s important to know what your potential partner spends a lot of their time doing. But timing is king here. And if you say this magic phrase before you find out a guy’s name or immediately after, he will likely think that you’re one of those girls: spoiled, likes gifts, career-obsessed, and will probably leave him when times are hard. I can go on.

I thought I was just being over-dramatic with this idea, so I decided to to ignore my advice once, and when a girl asked me what I did immediately after finding out my name, I obliged. A really bad idea, and after several rounds of great but disconnected sex, we stopped seeing each other. It had no potential. She’d rather sit in a boardroom than look at the beautiful night sky.

So ladies, if you want to know what a guy does, just wait and he’ll probably tell you. Or at least ask waaaaaay after finding out his name.

    “and what do you do” within the first few dates = “I’m a golddigger”

    If a girl asks me that, I say, “I’m in animal rescue…I love puppies and kittens…I place Willy the One-Eyed Weasel in his virgin habitat.”

    Switch her out of golddigger mode and into wanton harlot mode.

    A man can make a timing mistake as well if he expresses his feelings about a woman before the woman expresses her feelings about him.

    Any man who is interested in you and your life wants to have sex with you. No man wants to just be friends with you if he does he is more than likely gay.

    I ask out a lot of girls and get turned down a lot. There is a look in their face that is priceless when they realize all I wanted to do was have sex with them. I was never interested in their jobs, careers or what they studied in college.
