Anything Good In The Galway Independent?

at

 

A friend of mine was recently told if he was a d***head the girl he coveted would be far more inclined to engage in a relationship but nothing would happen because he was too nice.

As ridiculous as this sounds it’s a common occurrence; nice guys are giving women a dangerous ascension into the previous unchallenged male domain of hunter-gatherer. Dating is complicated enough without the tradition lines being blurred.

Guys, my advice is simple: grow a pair. Follow my example, take her down off that pedestal, and be more like yours truly. See women for what they really are: something to be enjoyed and used. They are complicated and illogical so until you find one that you can half put up with enjoy playing the field.

Galway Independent dating expert ‘Galway Player’ there.

Eliciting outrage on Facebook.

Result.

    It took me all of 10 seconds to clock this as a really poor satire.
    He’s trying to emulate an “edgy” Barney Stinson from “How I Met Your Mother”, and all he’s really doing is coming acros as some *ssh*le teenager who just read Tucker Max’s blog or “I hope they serve beer in hell”.

    He’s essentially just writing “The Average American Male” to troll the people of Galway/ Ireland who’ve never gotten outside of their small town bubble.

    It’s sh*te that borders on plagarism, that’s what we should be outraged at, how deluded we are that any level of thought went into this.

        Yeah, unless he’s watching How I Met Your Mother ironically I don’t think you can call him a hipster.
        And that’s without mentioning the God-awful blogs he’s been reading.

        Poor troll, misguided ad hom attack, all in all a bad attempt. You’ll get it one day, just believe in yourself!

          1. No Fun

            No! Definitely not directed at you. It was at the guy with the dire “in your tweeds reference”.

          lol, small town bubble ?? , as in most dubliners who still live with their parents and have never left ireland

          1. No Fun

            No, as in people who have taken the small town mentality that “this outrage” is the first of it’s kind, and never seen the years of prior material that this is plagarised from.

            This includes people from Dublin who take that same small-town mentality that nothing outside of their world exists but once encroached upon it’s the first time this has ever happened.

            This is a terrible article, yes, but it’s borderline plagarism. I’d be offended at the actual source materials first, then at the poor copy that this ‘Galway player’ has produced.

        I like Neil Patrick Harris.
        Hate everything else.
        I think that’s the norm of peolle who “watch” that show.

        1. Rachel

          Its the only reason to watch that show. And maybe to also nurture a quiet but ever growing crush on Jason Segal.

  2. Caroline

    If this was a woman talking about men there would be outrage at how if this was a man talking about women there would be outrage.

    “See women for what they really are: something to be enjoyed and used.”

    Jeez does the Galway Independent not have an editor? What a tool.

      1. No Fun

        Yes, they do.

        7 Psychotic Pieces of Relationship Advice from Cosmo at Cracked.com.
        It has a run-down of some awful pieces of advice given by Cosmo, just a selection, mind you.

          Eh, have you actually read that article? It’s about ‘everything means he’s cheating on you’ – unrelated to ‘girls make nice guys into bad boys’ topic at hand.

          1. No Fun

            Yes, you’re right. Apologies.

            I should have framed it more as being indicative of the tone these articles take.
            Should have taken the stance of “cartoonishly bad men’s advice is no different from cartoonishly bad women’s advice”.
            If you’re learning about how to treat women from a newspaper or magazine the problem isn’t with the advice you’re being given.

    If anybody is doing a treasure hunt and needs to find a quintessential disgusting PUA, this guy is a perfect specimen.

    Completely gross.

      1. Ella

        I like your interpretation better.

        ‘Pick-up Artists’. I believe PUA is an acronym of their own making. To make them feel like the stealth super-bosses they know they are, with their special cheat codes for controlling the ladieezz.

        They have handbooks and everything. Scum of the earth, so they are.

    “Guys, my advice is simple: grow a pair. Follow my example, take her down off that pedestal, and be more like yours truly… They are complicated and illogical so until you find one that you can half put up with enjoy playing the field.”

    See that would actually be grand dating advice for either sex, it just needs minor editing.

  6. James M. Chimney

    Dunno about this being a bad boy thing. It doesn’t work out. Like the time I turned off my last girlfriend’s life support.

    Man, Galway Independent are deliberately being overtly misogynistic to get people to read their poo-rag.

    Don’t feed the dead tree trolls!
