Or Agony Aunt if you prefer. Whichever you prefer SeaNanners has been switching things up in his past couple of videos. I’m not on about the FS Tailslide Switch that he does in the Skate 3 Double Feature Machinima vids, I’m on about the commentaries on his last two Call of Duty vids. In the first one he’s commentating while drinking wine and cooking – a sort of Techno version of Keith Floyd without the alcoholism and much younger wife. In the commentary he touched on what to talk about, and went on to say that being able to cook is definitely a worthwhile skill to impress the ladies with (it is, and does).
So his most recent vid goes further. Apparently some subscribers had posted messages to him asking for advice on how to get the ladies….. Tell you what – watch/listen to the vid and we’ll come back to it. You need to hear what he’s saying to prevent me rehashing it and making this post in to ‘War and Peace’:
Watched it? No? Too busy eh? Okay, in a nutshell: “Don’t punch above your weight, homies” (cool, I turned SeaNanners in to some sort of Gangsta!).
Right, so he’s only talking about physical attractiveness. Fair enough. But you know what? He’s wrong, or at least misguided. It would seem that the people asking for advice are mooning after someone from afar and doing the “Oh, I wish they knew I existed….” deal (btw, ‘mooning’ in this context is staring at someone all doe-eyed and day dreaming – not chasing after them backwards with their kecks down, that’s just wrong on so many levels).
Really the advice should be: get some confidence, get to know them, and ask them out. Yes, it’s not necessarily as simple as I make it out there, but that’s it in a nutshell. Except on an incredibly superficial level, for most people looks are not everything and as cliched as it sounds, women like men who have confidence. I’d also chuck in there, don’t be afraid of rejection – it’s going to happen and it can be for many reasons not because you look like the Elephant Man.
I’m not the only one to respectfully disagree with SeaNanners, GoldGlove also gave his two cents and he’s sort of on the same page as me on the whole thing:
And that is that. Not exactly gaming news per se, but I thought I’d share my thoughts on it and give an alternative perspective. What are your thoughts on the subject?
Peas and loaves.
