The Hamster can be pretty annoying sometimes, right? She'll fuck her ex after having a glass of wine, and say she "was drunk so it was rape." Or she'll eat a half a tub of ice cream and say she "deserves it because she was going through a tough time." Or she'll be in a relationship with a dark triad bad boy and say "he's secretly a good guy deep down because he Cares About Me (TM)."
But a woman's capacity to rationalize doesn't have to be a loathesome thing all the time. Quite the contrary, you can use it as a deadly weapon to work in your favor.
Women will constantly ask questions intended to reveal your SMV if you answer them honestly.
I'm not saying lie. I'm saying if she asks a question which you sense is intended to quantify your value as a man, plead the fifth.
Anytime she asks you a question which has the potential to raise or lower her perception of your market value, don't give her a straight answer. Give her a sly, cocky, roundabout non-answer.
"So what's your partner count? Have you slept with a lot of girls?"
"Probably one more than Jesus likes."
"No, seriously. Have you been with many women?"
"Let's just say that if things go well tonight, you could be the lucky vagina number who wins any of the stuffed animals off the top shelf."
"Do you make good money at your job?"
"I don't know, I'll ask my butler."
"No, seriously. How much money do you make?"
"Let's just say that my refrigerator box is the envy of the entire hobo community."
"So are you a feminist? You believe in equality, right?"
"I have a dream that one day men and fish will have equal rights."
"So do you have many friends?"
"Are you kidding? I have all 10 seasons! Joey is my favorite."
A woman will constantly demand that you show all the cards in your SMV deck. She will tell you that she doesn't want you to play games and that it would be better if you just put them down on the table as an act of mutual surrender.
She's lying. Whether consciously or subconsciously, God only knows, but in either case, your SMV drops no matter how you answer, if you actually answer. If she asks for your partner count and you say "not a lot," she thinks you're a loser and thinks less of you. On the other hand, if you brag and say "yeah, I've fucked dozens of sluts, too many to count," you sound like a a validation-starved braggart who is trying to get her validation, and once again, she thinks less of you.
However, if you casually and bemusedly dismiss her questions and refuse to show your hand, her hamster will not be able to help but to imagine you're holding a royal flush.
The hamster is a remarkable weapon that can be used for good or evil. Feed it, and it can work wonders for you.
