In the MDAD (Misandrist Dating Advice Distraction), anything and everything will be done to keep you in the MDAD. This includes giving you bad dating advice to keep you on the MDAD treadmill. A very long time ago I saw this exchange (which I’m greatly paraphrasing) on a dating advice forum.
Man Trying To Solve His Dating Woes: I have been completely unsuccessful in dating. I’m looking for new ideas to try to change that.
Man Serving the MDAD: You should get a job in sales.
Man Trying To Solve His Dating Woes: What? That makes no sense. Why should I have to completely change career paths? No one else has to do that.
Man Serving the MDAD: You’re just unwilling to do the work it takes to get a relationship with a woman. You just want to whine about it.
Man Trying To Solve His Dating Woes: Fuck this. I will try somewhere else.
I have actually seen “get a job in sales” and other things equally as absurd actually given as dating advice. Absurd dating advice is not a bug. It’s a feature of the MDAD designed to keep you on the MDAD treadmill looking for more and more dating advice. (There are also other aspects to this such as dating advice givers entrapping men into a lecture about self improvement and being a keyboard jockey.) Even absurd dating advice that pisses you off is designed to keep you looking for more and more dating advice because you figure that there has to be better dating advice out there. As long as you stay on the MDAD treadmill and don’t give up on women, they have done their job. If you are constantly searching for new dating advice, you won’t realize that your life is functioning just fine without women (and is probably better without women).
