A few years ago, a couple of Shoguns went to see Derek Rake at the Shogun Method HQ. There, we talked about one of the most important questions that a guy will face in his lifetime–
How do we choose a girlfriend or wife?
As you’ll know, it’s not a trivial question at all. Why? Well, it’s simple… if there’s one thing that’ll screw a guy up completely, it’s this–
His choice of women.
In the meeting, Derek Rake told my brother Shoguns–
“Most guys come to me because they chose the wrong women. If you know how to choose wisely, you won’t need Shogun Method at all.”
I looked at my own situation and realized the truth in Derek’s words. I had enormous problems with my then girlfriend, and upon being a Shogun, I finally understood–
If I chose someone better, I won’t have those problems at all.
I then asked Derek,
“So, how do we choose women, then?”
And he answered,
“It’s simple. All you need to do is to look for this ONE thing.”
“Every high quality woman has this ONE thing. Every single one of them.”
“Every high quality woman has a loving relationship with her father.”
“When you choose a girlfriend or wife, choose a woman who had a loving father growing up.”
I asked him why.
“It’s simple, Wilson,” he told me. “Because how she treats her father is what she is going to treat you.
“If she had a horrible relationship with her father, she will project her childhood trauma on you.
“When you are her boyfriend or husband, you’re now the father figure in her life.
“Whatever emotional burden she had with him now falls on your shoulders.
“So, the bottom line is this. Stay the fuck away from women with daddy issues.”
And as I think back about my ex-girlfriends, I realized that what Derek had said was 100% spot-on.
I’ve dated so many psychotic women I’ve lost count and here’s what I noticed. The worst were those who grew up either with an abusive or an absent father. Derek was right.
Ever since then, us Shoguns have made it a rule to stay away from women who hated their fathers. We called the rule the Rake Criterion, naming it after Derek.
Now, here’s the thing…
When you have Shogun Method, you’ll be in the position to choose. You’ll finally get to pick who you want to be with, and that’s awesome, right?
But, here’s the thing about Shogun Method… it doesn’t tell you how to qualify women. This is Shogun Method’s only weakness I can see, a weakness we have since patched with the Rake Criterion.
So, now whenever I date someone, I test her with the Rake Criterion.
And this is how I do it–I ask her early on about her father. If she tries to avoid the question, or worse, starts to bitch about him, I head for the door.
Once, I met this girl and so I casually asked her, “So, what is your dad like?” When she said she “hated that fucker” and she’d “dance on his grave when he dies”, I stood up and left. I mean, she’s a real bombshell with a nice rack and all, but man, good fucking riddance!
So, here’s what I want to tell you today–
Before you jump headfirst into a relationship with a woman, you must qualify her.
See if she has a good relationship with her father. If she doesn’t… there’s only one thing to do, and that’s to WALK. As Derek Rake would tell you… her sociopathy is not your responsibility.
So, trust me on this. The Rake Criterion will save you from a lifetime of misery and grief from getting stuck with a crazy woman.
With Shogun Method, you’ll get the prime pick of the crop and you never have to settle for nothing less than the best. (Hint: the best of the crop is a woman who is submissive to you.)
Because take it from me–leave the crazies for those desperate losers who don’t know any better. You are a Shogun, and like us, you’re one level above other guys.
Got that? Good.
And it bears repeating… her sociopathy is not your responsibility. If she fails the Rake Criterion, get the fuck out.
