A Secret Women Know But Men Donít

by David DeAngelo

Iíd like to tell you a story...

Itís a story that you might find strangely familiar. Donít be alarmed.

Once upon a time, there was a man who was very attracted to a particular woman.

At first, she was just another attractive woman... but the more he got to know her, the more he began to feel attracted to her... and the more time he spent with her, the more that attraction grew into a deep emotional attachment and affection for her.

But there was one problem.

As his emotional attachment grew stronger and stronger, he also grew more and more insecure.


Because he couldnít tell whether or not she felt the same way towards him.

Sometimes she would say things like "You are so important to me" and "Iím glad that youíre in my life"... but nothing ever progressed past the "friendship" stage.

There was an occasional hug, an occasional kiss on the cheek from her... and once she even held his hand for a long time while he talked about an emotional issue.

But Something Was Wrong With the Picture

She just wasnít acting like a woman that was "falling in love". She was acting like a friend.

The insecurity that he felt became a spiral that amplified itself... and the more insecure he became, the more afraid he grew of "screwing things up" by kissing her or asking her to be his girlfriend.

Plus, the more insecure he became, the less time she seemed to want to spend with him.

After spending many days and nights obsessing over this girl, the man finally arrived at the conclusion that if she only knew how HE FELT, that she would feel the same way.

So he made a bold move.

He Told Her How He Felt

He confessed that he was in love, and that he would do anything to be with her.

She looked at him with compassion in her eyes and said "Thank you... I really mean that... but I donít want to mess up our friendship... youíre too important to me..."

This only confused the man more.

He didnít know how to take it...

He finally decided that he couldnít go on like this anymore... he had to be with her.

He had to make sure that she knew just how much he wanted to be with her... so he took a big step, bought her a symbolic gift, and wrote her a long, long letter... again confessing his feelings.

And then the unthinkable happened.

She didnít reply.

He called her three times a day for almost a week before reaching her.

She made an excuse about being very busy, and said "Iíll try to give you a call soon, I have to go"... and hung up...

...but he never got a call back.

Over the following months, the man tried desperately to understand what went wrong... and what happened.



OK, Iím back.

Now, wasnít that a sweet story?

Heart warming, huh?

I know, I should keep my day job, and not take up writing romance novels...

Now, letís talk about that story.

That story is basically a MYTH.

And Iím not talking about FICTION here.

Iím talking about a story that rings true for a great majority of men. A story that is timeless. A story that resonates at a deep level because you can IDENTIFY with it.

And why does this particular story resonate for most men?

Because weíve all been there in one way or another... at one time or another... and many of us have been there OFTEN in our lives.

Another thing that gives this particular story a lot of power is the powerful negative emotions that it stirs... as a result of the powerful negative experiences that it reminds us of...

Stories and situations like this one really FASCINATE me.

They fascinate me because I see them as an opportunity to UNDERSTAND and SOLVE the puzzles that they represent.

In this particular situation I think there is a solution. And it lies in understanding...

A Secret That Women Know But Men Donít

And that secret comes down to the reality that if a woman isnít ATTRACTED to a man, all of his attempts to confess his love, convince her to like him, and court her BACKFIRE.

In other words, they not only DONíT WORK, they actually make things WORSE.

In other words, the very things that a man does to try to make a woman LIKE HIM make her NOT like him. They make her run.

All those great intentions and emotional dedication actually cause the man feeling them to do things that make her go away.

It sucks.

And I hope that by explaining the process of how this happens to you Iíll help you avoid this painful situation in your own future...

The "Instant Ewww"

Iím always fascinated by the idea that we humans donít always understand the message that weíre communicating to others...

So often we think that because we WANT to communicate a message that others are going to NATURALLY understand what weíre trying to say.

Have you ever seen a guy in a foreign car that has wheels on it that cost more than the car itself... with his stereo blasting... and a muffler that somehow AMPLIFIES the raw sound of the 4-cylinder motor...?

Have you ever thought to yourself "I donít think that car is communicating the message to women that he thinks it is"...?

Yea, I have too.

Well hereís the deal:

If you do something to "let a woman know how you feel"... but she isnít ATTRACTED to you, then itís going to backfire.

Itís going to trigger a feeling that I like to call the "Instant Ewww".

The Instant Ewww is just as powerful as the physical and emotional response of ATTRACTION.

Once a woman feels it, YOUíRE DONE.

Itís over.

Itís like hammering a RAILROAD SPIKE into the coffin.

Once a woman feels the Instant Ewww, she will start behaving differently.

In short, sheíll disappear.

So where did I get the concept of the "Instant Ewww"?

I got it from WOMEN.

I have actually heard SEVERAL women use the word "Ewww" when describing how they felt about a guy that was "confessing his love"... of course, these were guys that werenít loved in return.

So What Causes the Instant Ewww?

And why would a woman feel it towards a man who was trying to be nice... a guy who was giving her a gift or telling her how he feels?

Because if you think about it from HER perspective, youíll realize that the moment you do something to "confess", you have created a TURNING POINT in the relationship.

Up until that point, you were harmless.

I mean, women always know how men feel.

She already knew you wanted her.

She knew it from the beginning.

But now that youíve started pursuing her and talking about how you feel, youíve created a NEGATIVE TENSION that is VERY uncomfortable.

Youíve triggered an emotion that is repulsive to women. And it does repel them.

In summary...

You canít "make a woman like you" or "change how she feels about you" by doing nice things for her...

Doing "nice" things for a woman who isnít attracted to you HURTS you. It backfires. Worse, it creates the "Instant Ewww" feeling that makes it so sheíll NEVER like you.

Men make this mistake over and over again in life because theyíre doing what MAKES SENSE to them. Theyíre doing it because they donít have an understanding of ATTRACTION.

I mean, If you have a friend, and you like them, and you want to make them like you more... and you do some nice thing for them, they will probably like you more.

On the other hand...

If you have a woman that you "like" in a romantic way, and she doesnít "feel it" for you, and you do something nice for her because you want HER to like you more, it will BACKFIRE... and she will not only NOT like you more, she will most likely distance herself from you.

Guys think that they need to communicate when they like a woman... as if thatís part of the necessary process of getting a girl.

In their minds, it goes like this:

Like her > Tell her you like her > She likes you

Well remember... if you follow this pattern yourself with women who arenít ATTRACTED to you, then itís going to BACKFIRE.

If sheís not into you, then it goes like THIS:

She thinks of you as a friend > You tell her you like her > She gets the "Instant Ewwws" and never wants to be around you again...

The Answer

There are really TWO answers to this problem.

The first answer is what to do if youíre in a situation where you like a particular girl, but you donít know if she likes you back.

If you want to know how she feels about you, KISS HER (and use "The Kiss Test" that you learned on my website and in my book).

As a rule of thumb, donít get heavier than HER. Use SIGNALS from her to find out how she feels... and if you donít know how to read and create those signals, then LEARN.

Asking a woman if sheís interested in you in a romantic way, or if you are "her type" will actually DESTROY the chances that sheíll like you.


The SECOND answer is to not get into this particular situation in the FIRST PLACE. Avoid it entirely.

And how does one do that?

One does that by creating ATTRACTION from the beginning.

One does that by understanding the dynamics of how and why women have the physical and emotional response of ATTRACTION triggered.

One does that by knowing what youíre doing FROM THE BEGINNING.

And whatís the best way to learn THAT skill?

I thought youíd never ask...

The very best way to learn how to make women feel ATTRACTION for you is to get yourself a copy of my eBook, Double Your Dating.

Iíve spent several years now studying the ways that men who are "naturals" communicate using their words, voice tone, and body language that makes them MAGNETIC to women.

And Iíll tell you... itís not magic.

You donít have to be rich, handsome, or young.

And you donít have to be LUCKY.

What you DO have to do is LEARN.

Itís a skill, and I honestly believe that ANY man can learn it if he wants.

But youíre not likely to figure it out by "trial and error". Many of the keys to making women feel ATTRACTION arenít "obvious" at all.

In fact, many of them make no sense... and theyíre the LAST thing youíd do in a particular situation if you didnít know the SECRETS.

Iím telling you, this book will show you the way. I guarantee that this program will INSTANTLY change how you behave around women.

And it will start getting you results IMMEDIATELY.
