TABSK: In a Triangle with a 'Dating Coach'
« on: December 27, 2023, 06:14:07 PM »
Dear TABSK:  My name is Debbie.  I'm discovered TABSK in my 20s in college, and you helped me thru post-college dating, a marriage, a divorce, and post-divorce dating.  The latter phase of my life was going swimmingly, with my having found a stable career gentleman who was on the same page as me in our current wants--a no-pressure, take-it-slow mature relationship.

Well, cue the Bitch From Hell music.  Enter Susan.  Well, let me stop myslf there (it's hard for me to stay calm when discussing Susan--you'll see why shortly):  in fairness to Susan, my gentleman lover approached her.  As he was entitled to--he and I have not committed to exclusivity with each other .... not yet.  But, Susan accepted his flirtations and offered up her number .... and dinner dates .... quite rapidly.

Turns out .... Susan is on online 'Dating Coach'.

Turns out ..... Susan offers my lover tips ON DATING ME.

How fucked up is that?  If she was a therapist, this would be blatant conflict of interest .... unprofessional .... dis-bar-able.  (If that's a word.)  But because 'Dating Coach' is an unofficial job .... she gets off Scot-free.

TABSK, this bitch is going down.  She badmouths me under the guise of balancing critiques with (back-handed) compliments/praise.  My question for you is:  do a battle her out in the open, where my man can see it transpiring?  Or do I 'invite her the step outside' immediately?  I don't want to appear afraid of evaluation.  Debbie

Dear Debbie--Goodness, you've stepped into it, haven't you?  What a scam Susan has found.  Keep your options open.  TABSK

Dear TABSK:  Tricia here, same generation as Debbie.  And I'm with both of you:  Pffffffftttt to 'dating coaches'.  During the pandemic, I was Zooming with a gentleman who was paying a 'dating coach' to teach him how to overcome his 'Approach Anxiety' and have a 'Personal Discussion' with women.

Soooooo, wanba know what I did.  I overcame my own 'Approach Anxiety' with romantic rivals abx knocked on the door of her home, unannounced, and told her I'd like to have a 'Personal Discussion' with her in private.

After some awkwardness (mostly on my part--she came across as the same cocky bitch offline as she did online), the discussion got real personal. 

And so did the hairpulling.

Then the all-out catfighting.

I got my point across.  She stopped taking my man's money.  And feeding him her bullshit.

I recommended Debbie do the same.  Tricia


Dear Tricia--You go girl.  Good to see at 'dating coach' get her walking papers.  TABSK

Dear TABSK (and Debbie, and Tricia)--Jane here, a 45 year old lifelong reader.  Dating coaches sure to have a lot to answer for.  Three more years of their crap and all of America will be ghosting and blocking the rest of America.  Then everyone, male AND female, will be an incel (notice how that word has fallen out of use since everyone was coached to the path of becoming one?).

Trish had the right idea.  If you get the chance to pull a dating coach by the hair, take it.  Jane.

Dear Jane:  Preach, sister!  TABSK

Dear TABSK--Sandy, here, a 56 year old lifelong reader.  I echo the sentiments here, or at least empathize with them, but come at that from a different angle.

I think that about half of dating coaches are simply messengers of the sick turn dating has taken since smartphones became ubiquitous, while I think the other half are unwittingly amplifying malicious behaviors (and, thus, yes, deserve to have their hair pulled).

TABSK, here are the two most barbarous, uncivilized messages which have become canonized since 2015 or so.

1.  That a nice guy is a "simp".  A nice guy may indeed be unfuckable.  But, TABSK, turning him into a villain by labelling him a "simp" is cruel.  He's already vulnerable, and giving him a label puts a target on his back as fair game for bullying by the worst kind of women.  TABSK, just this past Christmas, my nice guy (and VERY fuckable) husband was pranked out of $100 by a service worker, who if she had simply asked, would have received $1,000 from her if she had simply asked.  In 1984, she would have received a hand-to-hand ass-kicking from me, as his wife/girlfriend.  But, no, it's 2024...so he's a simp, and she laughs to the bank.  Barbarous--Attila the Hun level.

2.  "Ghosting".  TABSK, when I was of dating age, I would never have dreamed of ghosting an ex, even if it a single date.  I always sucked it up and said, "Sorry, this just isn't working for me.  But you're very cute--keep trying."  Today, the woman gets to take the easy way out and pretend the other person was on Air Malaysia Flight 370.  Now that I think about it, that's what Flight 370 decided to do to us--not crash, just ghost us all.

So, if you dating coach rival is getting on your nerves, tell her to fix these two problem asap.  Or else.  Sandy.

Dear Sandy--Tell you husband sorrh from all of us.  And don't let that service worker off the hook.  TABSK

Dear TABSK--Isabelle-Marie here, a 61 year old bi-lingual Quebecois, who also spent a great deal of my youth, then adulthood, snowbirding in Maine, Florida, and various parts of the lower-48.  So I've seen the ebbs and floqs of American dating life from a semi-distanced perspective.

And with that, I'll start by saying .... shout out to all the Boomer/Gen-X readers who grew up in the 1970s!!!  I'm with the thread cutting women dating coaches a break as being more messeger than villain, although I might add, that in the good ole rough-and-tumble 1970s, rather than being dating coaches (there was no such thing, after all!!!), we women were holding each other accountable!!!  With sharp words certainly, and if necessary, with claws and sharp elbows!!!

Ladies, rememeber the days .... if we broke a boy's heart, especially in an inappropriate way, we were accountable not to HIM .... but to the WOMEN in his life.  His sisters, his cousins, his platonic girlfriends, his fuck-buddies.  Ladies of the 1970s, admit it:  you all had an unpleasant post-breakup run-in with that special girl in his life, holding you accountable for what you'd done.  And dhe wasn't looking for an apology, or the re-unite you with your ex.... she was collecting on a debt, and didn't stop swinging until you had paid in full. 

And, more importantly.... at least once, WE were the dispenser of justice.  Sometimes, it was our first real fight.

Like a lot of 1970s customs, like bullying and, well, anti-DEI stuff, things went too far and were a cover  for unenlightened behavior.

But, admit it.  A lot of Karen's never became adult Karen's .... because the problem was "addressed" in high school.

I think I'll leave things at that.  Isabelle-Marie


Dear Isabelle-Marie, bet there's a good story, or three, in there somewhere.  We think our younger readers would benefit ftom hearing them.  TABSK

Dear Readers--I know TABSK usually only speaks its mind in response to one of your questions.  But we just had to break tradition this morning.  As bad as the female 'dating coaches', and their message, has gotten, the Red Pill male dating coaches are even worse. 

Well, the universe eventually self-corrects, and we saw a real howler posted on YouTube the other day.  Check this out:  a Red Pill coach said that men are using his Disrespect-Don't-Chase methods, and they are indeed getting their target woman's attention.  But then they continue to scorn her, even after she offers up her body to him on a silver platter.  So no sex ends up happening.  The coach cops out with, "Those men are taking my techniques too far."

Well, No Shit, Sherlock.  You've poisoned the well between the sexes so thoroughly, that now you complain when no one can drink the water?  Fuck off.  Go crawl back in the hole you came from.

So, perhaps there's hope.  Perhaps the pendulum is swinging back.  A girl can hope, right?  TABSK

P.S.  Isabelle-Marie:  Anxiously awaiting your story of holding another woman accountable!  Just sayin'.
