Building a Better Bloke

Get involved

Posted in Uncategorized by Sam de Brito on October 17, 2009

Lots of you are visiting and saying nothing, which shits me.

This site is for you guys.

I don’t get paid for it. How about participating, and stop cruising by like mutes at a traffic accident?

Suggest topics. Make submissions. I’ve already received a bunch of crackers. Come on. Step off.

    I was thinking about the common topic called approach anxiety. I wondered whether maybe theres a brother to this called approach exhaustion. I would describe it as the feeling that after a while you couldn’t be bothered trying to strike up conversations with women because the chance of having an intelligent conversation or even a polite conversation seems to get remoter as time goes by. It seems like i have reached what is best described in economic parlance as the point of diminishing marginal returns ie beyond this point each additional unit of input yields smaller and smaller increases in output. I feel like i have hit a conversation brick wall. Has anyone else experienced this phenomenon?

    Reminds me of this site

    Which was originally started by a bunch of computer nerds trying to help each other out and get off their computers.

    It can take a while for people to feel comfortable enough to comment.

    I believe that phenomenon (in non-economic parlance) is called becoming jaded 😉

    I’m so guilty of this.
