Lies, Cons and Dating Scams


Recommended Posts


In some situations, it's pretty easy to con people.

In other situations, it's almost impossible to con people.

For example, back when TV's were really big, the manufacturers noticed that the ones that were heavier sold more.

So they started purposely making them heavier.

People would tend to think it was more valuable if it was heavier.

This is a kind of easy con because it's based on our common short memory.

If you spend an extra $50 for a TV, thinking it's worth it (when it really isn't) you won't buy another TV for a few years anyway.

This is the kind of "con" that's arguably not really a con.

More like very, very shrewd marketing.

Another type of con works, but for different reasons.

Like when I was a kid, in the back of comic books they'd always have these silly things being sold.

X-ray glasses.

They even had a picture of a kid looking through a ladies dress.

Most people buy things like this not because they actually work, but because of curiosity.

So you buy it NOT because you think you can suddenly get X-ray vision from a $3 pair of glasses, but just to SEE what the deal is.

Then you get them, satisfy your curiosity, and aren't really surprised when they don't work.

Other cons are much, much more elaborate, and much, much more deceptive.

Like many, many foods are being marketed as "keto friendly" meaning they have few carbs.

For example, consider a tortilla company that says they are low carb.

And supposed this was a blatant lie.

They KNEW they had carbs but they purposely lied.

How, specifically, would anybody know?

The FDA doesn't spend a lot of time on things like this.

No individual consumer is going to spend millions of dollars suing the tortilla company over a $3 product that had more carbs than it promised.

And even if somebody suspected they had carbs, the food companies can say they were using a different definition of carbs, or some other thing.

All these cons are large scale, "institutional" cons.

But other cons we try and play on each other.

We pretend to be friendly with people we really don't like.

We pretend to be more than we really are.

We inflate our resumes, and downplay our "bad past."

In the dating arena, this comes across as guys "lying" to women.

Now, some guys have no problem with this.

They blatantly lie, knowing they are only in it for the hit it and quit it.

This is pretty easy.

In fact, you might even say this is a two-way lie.

The guy pretends to be something he isn't, and the girl, who is equally interested in a short term fling, pretends to believe it.

But what if you don't want to lie?

What if you don't want to need to, or have to lie?

What if you just want to show up, and automatically CREATE attraction in most ladies?

That's where your deep, honest, and attractive frame comes in.
