The Bitch Slap: How to Date in Denver When You’re a D-Bag

greg hollenback denver not himDear Mr. Hollenback~

As a resident of the greater Cherry Creek and Glendale area here in Denver, I receive the Glendale Cherry Creek Chronicle in my mailbox each month. While I generally only give it a cursory flip through, your recent article “How to Date in Denver When You’re Dead” caught my eye. I hope you don’t mind, but I felt the headline was inaccurate. Hence, I renamed it in my column here today.

Somewhere along the way, you’ve acquired the moniker “Sheik of Cherry Creek,” while I can’t imagine who comprises your harem. Your recent column is a cesspool of misogyny – and the last time I issued a smackdown of this magnitude, it was to Douglas Brown over at the Denver Post for his ill-researched, faux exploration of cougar culture. Pull up a chair – you’re about to get Bitch Slapped.

“Cut this column out, fold it up and put it in your back pocket. I’m serious. What you are about to read should be your first date constitution, the holy grail of dating. You could be a dead guy and use this recipe for success. It’s war out there and you need to be as prepared as possible when you enter back into the dating battlefield and if you’re not you will be left for dead, broke and lonely.”

Incorrect, Greg. It’s NOT war in the world of man-meets-woman. Perhaps for the douchebags who would read your column and take your advice as the holy grail, but not for the average population. It’s no shocker your column is dubbed “Confessions of a Serial Dater.,” as if you’re following your own advice, you’re likely to have more drinks in your face than beauties on your arm.

“First, you have to get your head right. Remember, women are wired to be dysfunctional by nature and when emotion overrides logic you know you’re in for a wild ride.”

This line actually made me spit Fresca. I truly adore the fact that you begin an article purported to be the Holy Grail for dating with a really offensive judgment on the nature of womankind. Now, I’ll hand it to you that there is psycho pussy wild and loose on the streets of Denver, but it’s douchebags like yourself that make it hard for all the kickass guys and gals out there looking for someone to share their lives with (or at least not kick out of bed for an extended period of time).

How about if I came out and said that every guy is a chauvinistic, self-absorbed, cheating, infantile, commitmentphobe dickhead? While I’ve met damn fine array of men in my lifetime who share one or an assortment of those qualities, it’s not an accurate assessment of men as a whole, is it? And it’s guys like you who spew such crap – and in a family-oriented community newspaper and a forgettably trafficked Blogspot blog, nonetheless – that make it hard for the hordes of decent guys out there because the awesome chicks think they’re assholes because some douchebag pigeonholed them. Alas, I could go on about this one aspect forever, but let’s move on to some of the other Holy Grail of Dating-type gems in your column.

“Your approach is everything. Your first impression and getting a woman to go out on a date with you is half the battle. Except don’t ever, and I mean never, call it a date…”

Really? We’re not “dating” anymore? Well, slap me and call me Myrna. See, when I go to sites like Match.com, guess what I’m looking for? A date. I’m not going to Friend.com or BeMyHikingBuddy.com. I’m going to a site that allows me to connect with MEN in order to explore future romantic involvement. And I never want to wonder if something is a “date” or not. So for fuck sake, it’s a date. Women appreciate straightforward. Go “hang out” with your buddies and watch the game. Take a girl on a date. After you’ve been dating a girl for awhile, you can “hang out” with her on the couch. But guess what – you’re probably going to have to take her out on a few dates first.

“So when you say, “Let’s go grab a happy hour and have some laughs” she is hearing a fun statement rather than a question that she can say “no” to. “Let’s go” rather than “Would you like to,” and “grab” meaning quick, in and out if she’s not having fun. Then “happy hour” and “laughs,” the double banger, booze and laughing, which are two of women’s favorite pastimes.”

Heavens. This is simply precious: booze and laughing are two of women’s favorite pastimes. Maybe this is true in the middle of Skankville where you apparently go trolling for your strange, but not among the smart and sexy women I know – and especially here in Denver. My girlfriends’ favorite pastimes include things like cycling, hiking, climbing, knitting, salsa dancing, charity work, going to a Rockies game and working in the garden. And sure – we dig a beer or glass of wine before, during or after some of those activities, too. But I dare say that no lady having any semblance of class, here in Denver or elsewhere, would list booze on any list of pastimes. If alcohol becomes a pastime, that’s called being an alcoholic.

“And remember resistance causes attraction so if you can get her to wonder if you’re into her and create a little mystery you will begin to have women chasing you in no time.”

Aside from my overwhelming urge to copyedit this sentence, I’ll just address the content. No, I don’t want to wonder if a guy is into me. Not at all. It’s total bullshit and a game that douchebag “dating folks” like you need to stop perpetuating. If you want to play games, move along before you end up a chalk outline in my dating neighborhood, because I’ll pass you over and mark you forgettable before you can even check your phone a 17th time to see if I’ve texted you back.

Great relationships are borne out of mutual attraction, timing, circumstance and…that “thing.” And let me just say that if you like someone enough to sit down and think, “Hmmmm…how am I going to jack with his/her head so they know how much I like them?” I’ll just say that you’re probably not too terribly into that person. I’ve been blessed with some amazing relationships in my life, and while they all didn’t turn out to be forever, not a single one of those men fucked with my head. And I didn’t fuck with theirs, either.

(The next outtake immediately follows the previously eviscerated sentence in Mr. Hollenback’s column.)

“After all we are merely extensions of nature; women are little flowers looking for the strongest seed to pollinate them. Be strong and safe out there.”

I am not a flower. Women are not flowers. We are women, and while we may have the urge to become mothers some day, I do not require any man to “pollinate” me. This is, by far, the most offensive fallacy you put forth in your laughable column. You’re trying to tell me that you honestly feel that women are meek and men superior and my days spent looking for one who will bless me with his seed? Let me guide you through a day in my world.

I get up between 5 and 5:30 A.M. I head to the gym or yoga. Back home, and get jazzed for my work day. You see, I own a consulting business and am a professional writer. If I don’t move my business forward, who will? Throughout the day, I speak with colleagues, work with clients, acquire new projects and close out ones completed. I laugh, I swear, I smack spiders with a shoe and mow the lawn. I’ll hop on my bike for a training ride my coach has laid out for me, have dinner with friends, cook and indulge in a little Netflix. Then I’ll wrap things up and get ready to do it all again tomorrow.

Do you see a need to be “pollinated” anywhere in my day? I’ll venture to guess there are a ton of guys who have pretty much identical days, too.

I’m looking for a partner, and yes, it’s true: I dig the good old Texas Hangdown. I dig dudes. It will be wonderful when the man with whom I’ll move through my life emerges and we can build a relationship. Laughter (sans the booze), straightforward communication (no cryptic bullshit) and the desire to make one another’s lives better. To help one another be whatever it is they dream of being. That’s what I’m looking for. If children are in the mix, it’ll happen. If my plumbing doesn’t work, we’ll adopt and there’s the miracle of modern reproductive medicine to help things along if that’s the path we choose. But I don’t need pollination. I’ve never met a woman in my thirty-seven years who did.

“Follow me on Twitter at sheikofcc and don’t forget to go to www.greghollenback.com to comment on this and previous months issues of “Confessions of a Serial Dater” along with Denver’s most complete singles social calendar and a way to get a hold of me for one on one date coaching. In the next article, “Happy Hour, Happy Ending” I am going to tell you where to go on your first date!”

It terrifies me to no end that you offer “one on one date coaching.” Frankly, why would anyone want dating advice from someone who describes themselves as a “serial dater?” I want dating advice from friends and family who know me and care, a professional matchmaker or a therapist (since all women are inherently dysfunctional, we all must have one, right?). I certainly don’t want it from you, and I’ll venture to say that none of my male readers, single or otherwise, would either.

And I’m pretty much appalled at the proposed headline for your next column: “Happy Hour, Happy Ending.” The phrase “happy ending” is synonymous with jerking off a patron in a massage parlor. I can certainly hold out hope that the editor over at the Chronicle will do his or her due diligence and strike that prior to publication.

To wind things up, I’m wondering if the Glendale Cherry Creek Chronicle’s editor was drunk or high when they accepted your column for publication and subsequently featured you on the home page of their website. I know someone had to have looked at it prior to print, as they were sober enough to fix the glaring grammatical and usage errors displayed in your blog version for the most part. But your advice to men looking to get the attention of “hot, modern women” is so simultaneously false, demeaning and otherwise offensive that I can’t believe a neighborhood-oriented publication in the suburbs of Denver has taken it to print and offered it to their audience. It’s not entertaining. It’s not even well-written. It’s just…well, it’s crap.

Glendale and Cherry Creek are places where people raise families. I don’t see a single father out there who would teach his son of the “holy grail of dating” you spew.

And you, Mr. Hollenback, have been Bitch Slapped. And you’re a first: I’ve never Bitch Slapped a person before, yet in this situation, I’ve made an exception.

Sincerely,

Erika Napoletano

...I knew Greg personally long ago.

He was a fucking douchebag then, and he's a fucking tubby douchebag now; I only wish Peter Boyles *had* actually punched him in the face, and then shit in that same mouth Greg has always used to talk out of both sides on.

Oh my gosh - I was looking this d bag up after some rude interaction on FB (regarding his and Peter Boyles encounter) and this came up! The guy is a narcissistic jack ass that will never get it. I wish Boyles would have punched him rather than just pull his lanyard.

Honestly advice like this strikes me as being the nerd boy's guide to getting revenge on female kind for all those years they rejected you as in high school and Mr. Hollenback leads they way, showing you step by step how to finally reverse the roles and get you revenge on all those horrible girls who wronged you. I can just see hundreds of house bound undersexed twenty somethings gleefully cackling like some sort of Scooby Doo super villian at the thought of having women by the dozens flock to them and battle for their attention only to be discarded like a used tissue solely because as an irresistible out on the prowl sex panther of machismo you can do that. In my opinions if you're truly a "ladies man" you wouldn't even have to try to come up with all these strategies and techniques to date women. Rather meeting, and dating women should be quite effortless. Frankly all these tips and advice guys like Hollenback bestow upon those socially inept enough to fall for his nonsense comes off as manual on how to B.S women and attempt to manipulate them instead of worthwhile advice on how to successfully date the opposite sex, Hollenback was on the radio today as I'm typing this and it was the first time i had the displeasure of hearing this cumquat babble. I Immediately googled him to see what this charming lady killer looked like and found this blog and laughed hysterically at your brilliant analysis of his pearls of wisdom.

Second, check out the dudes who claim they can use the rhythm of their words to hypnotize women into bed. They call it Neurolinguistic Programming or NLP. You could probably find enough with a simple YouTube search to write a bitch slap book. Suggested Title: "Look Into My Douchie Eyes: you are getting horny? Hardly." by YOU. As always, I apologize for the state of my gender. Good night.

I just happened to come across this article because I was online looking at my POF.com account and it said that Greg was one of my matches. ( Only he would put his full name in one of his pictures right off the bat ) Which leads me to believe you only have to be breathing to be matched up with anyone on that site because we are nothing alike. AND his POF profile is as obnoxious as this article. I am insulted to even be in the same dating pool as this man.

Matt - I'm sure you'll agree that the context in which the post by Mr. Hollenback was written was NOT indicating those who enjoy the homebrewing or brewmaster crowd. ;-) I, too, have many friends in the microbrew craft. It doesn't mean they represent it as a "pastime." More of a craft, I'd say?

I'm not going to lie and say I was offended by these men's comments. I am however shocked and embarrassed that Mr. Hollenback and Glendale Cherry Creek Chronicle was brazen enough to publish such a clearly offensive piece of content. The words that were said aren't really anything that you wouldn't hear in a men's dorm or locker room at any given time, the fact that the Chronicle published them blows my mind. “Remember, women are wired to be dysfunctional by nature . . .” “Remember, blacks are wired to be dysfunctional by nature . . .” “Remember, gays are wired to be dysfunctional by nature . . .” Talking shit and telling jokes in private, or out drinking with the boys is one thing. For a public paper to publish such nakedly bigoted rhetoric is something else altogether. Are there no women editors at the Chronicle? Is this article an example of what Glendale Cherry Creek Chronicle editors feel is appropriate for the residents and families that live in the area?

Dating is like driving- everyone thinks their way is the right way, and we're all on the same roads so we have to interact. When you're back in Vegas, I promise not to ask you "Let’s go grab a happy hour and have some laughs". I'll just say "Let's get silly". Erika, I love your column and for your own sanity... never argue with fools... they won't know when you've won.

Dear "Allyvette"~ 1) Your email address is fake. 2) Sure - I'll bite. 4) Artical = article, privalaged = privileged, rediculas = ridiculous I revel in the differences between men and women and have a TON of fun dating. Meeting new people and developing some of the most incredible friendships of my life is an inherent gift of the dating process. No, I don't feel "privalaged" that a man would want to act as a partner - if you want to be treated as a flower destined for pollination, go ahead. And "even with my independence?" Independence isn't a plague. It means that those of us who don't rely on men for pollination purposes are able to have rich and fulfilling lives and our strength is seen as an asset, not a detriment as you would see it with your "even with" qualifier. There's nothing bitter or resentful about me - my readers, friends and "followers" will attest. And I'll stop you right here on the (let me get this phrasing correct) "riding on someone elses fame to try and get ahead." For the record, "elses" isn't a word (should be else's) and I can only assume that you're Hollenback or Wrege if you have the audacity to refer to their "fame." Poor Hollenback - my post about him didn't even rank as well as one I'd done a few weeks back in the same column series. The shame of it all is you think I need him.. Oh, honey. No, I don't. And if you were such a fan of his, you wouldn't feel the need to come onto my blog with a fake email address. At least Don Wrege had the balls to use a fake email address AND a real website. Props to him there. And don't waste your time feeling sorry for me. I'm just sad Hollenback hasn't found enough true advocates to stop by and log voices of support with real contact credentials. Farewell, fake commenter. Make sure you use a new IP address next time! Erika - the gal who loves writing real blog comment responses to imaginary people

Hey Redhead, Lighten-Up, dont take everything so seriously. As a woman myself I can find humor in this artical. I dont think in any way this artical was ment to demean women or make them inferiour to men. I took it as looking at the differences between men and women (which when we look at it there are many, which is a good thing, not bad) Putting fun in dating is a good thing, meeting new people can be very overwhelming and uncomfortable. There is nothing worng with being a strong and independent woman, as ther is nothing wrong with a man treating you like a flower. You should feel privalaged that a man would want to take care of you and protect you even with your independence. Sounds to me like you need to have a little fun yourself, slow your roll and let a man treat you like a lady. Then maybe you wont be so bitter and resentful. Sure hope this rediculas nonsense get you more readers. Riding on someone elses fame to try and get ahead dosnt sound like the strong independent lady you make yourself out to be. Get a reality check chick!!!!!!!!! PRETTY SAD... Heres what you need http://www.liveperson.com/lp/online-counseling/counseling-services/?BanID=115498&OVRAW=relationship%20counselors&OVKEY=relationship%20counselor&OVMTC=standard&OVADID=32807118021&OVKWID=271585781521&OVCAMPGID=6268922521&OVADGRPID=13568089909&OVNDID=ND1 maybe talking to someone can help you to balance independence and feminity.

Out of curiousity I checked out Sir Douchebag on Twitter and nearly fell off my chair laughing when I saw this tweet: "Busy day as usual reaching hundreds of thousands of people doing the whole radio and print thing. Noticed a bit of Internet activity today." When was said internet activity? The day after this post. FUCK YEAH.

Great question. Why don't you try asking friends for advice? A mix of men and women, married, in relationships and single/dating.

Stumbled across your blog and love it. Your straightforwardness is very refreshing. I was pretty interesting to read this post and all the comments as well. Allot of web sites for men offer very similar advice on dating to what D-bag had to say. Recently having moved out of a long term relationship myself due to work relocation, I have given a bit of thought about starting dating again, once work settles down. Frankly I haven't due to most of what I have read in the form of 'advice' from such sites and hearing about all the games that are played. Have you seen any sites out there that give decent advice? From the last articles I read at sites like askmen it seems being a d-bag is a pretty common trend... Thanks for another great post, keep it up.

When we say "nice guy" we're generally saying it because we can't think of any other good adjective. So Erica's funny guy is probably ALSO nice, but we wouldn't call him a nice guy. We'd call him a funny guy. If we met a mysterious handsome stranger who was nice, we wouldn't call him nice. We'd call him mysterious and handsome. Und so weiter. So yes, nice guys finish after the dangerous guys if "nice" is all they have to recommend them. "Nice" is basically saying bland. Nothing offensive about that guy. Nothing bad. But nothing good, either. If there were something good about him, we'd be using much more engaging adjectives than "nice." Dangerous Guy generally gets the ladies because he's confident, not specifically because he's dangerous. He seems like he knows what's up, and everyone's attracted to a person who seems to have it all together, men and women alike. If he were JUST dangerous - like, say, he was actively chainsaw-murdering folks in the bar - that dude isn't appealing either. So basically, when we say "nice guy" and "dangerous guy", that doesn't describe the half of what we are or are not attracted to in them. Which is misleading, I grant you, but I'm sure being misleading is one of those womanish qualities bemoaned by our Gov. of Douchechusetts. No wonder he's such an ass.

Okay I remember my younger cute but nice brother complaining when he was in college that the girls only wanted to date the guys that were mean to them. Of course they all wanted him as a friend. I also remember when I was in my early twenties, my friends and I just wanted to drink and have fun. But then I grew up and turned 26. So my question is....Just how young are these girls this d-bag is trying to date.

Funny - after a full day of Mr. Hollenback taking up residence in the proverbial woodshed along with 4 comments left by readers (none too favorable, either) on his own blog, you think he'd stop by and weigh in with his thoughts. I'm sure it might be hard to get around town with balls his size, however. But alas, it appears we'll have to wait for both his AND the Glendale Cherry Creek Chronicle's response to the matter. Carry on smartly, monkays. I appreciate your collective readership, dissenting opinions, kindred spirits and...well, just you being monkays :)

While this guy is clearly the Governor of Douchechusetts, there are a couple points that I agree with, albeit very few. For me, I've had much more success dating when I've kept it casual. I would prefer not to call it a date even if it is. Perhaps it is just a formality, but I think that a "date" puts a lot of pressure on people and often leads to people on their best behavior and not being themselves. I am not saying there aren't people out there who can be themselves on dates, but it has been rare in my experience. I've had much more success in romantic relationships that grew out of friendship, but that is just for me personally. I know I'm the exception rather than the rule. The other point he made that I agree with is that people tend to be more interested if you act a bit aloof. I think it is a ridiculous notion to play mind games, but I've seen it work too often to know not call bullshit on it. It's not something I could engage in, because I'm way too easy to read and would be called on it instantly. Great rebuttal though, guys like this do make the rest of us look bad.

WOW.... I'm a female who, at one time dated Greg. I have to say in his defense that some of the advise he offers would be of much help to MANY men. I can only speak from my own experiance, but the "game" he had worked. I thinks he's trying to help some men build a little confidence. I have refered several of my single male friends to him as well as to fallow his colum. To this day I consider him a friend and a great person. He has a lot to offer in many areas. As for all your bitch slapping......YIPPY for you, maybe you can relax now and take your tampon out now that you"BITCH SLAPPED" someone.......I think you should take the advise of another comment on here and ignore him if you don't like him.

Erika you da woman! This has got to be one of the funniest posts I've read to date! You had me chuckling so loud that I was scared my sister who's sleeping in the next room would wake up and rip me a new one (it's 3:30 am where I am). Douchebag = huge understatement Pollinate?! Really? Pollinate this mofo! Sounds like this serial dater or more like master-baiter goes home alone every night to choke the chicken to the good tune of "Oh, I'm a loser baby, so why dont you..." lol :) I would love to see your reply in that Chronicle. More so, I would definitely pay to see the Douche's face when he reads this. I don't know whether to feel bad for this guy or just laugh my ass off. I also wonder if some women fall for this crap!

I do not understand how dating becomes a game to some people. If you are "good at dating" it should mean that you are no longer just dating. Otherwise, it seems more appropriate to say "I am good at getting a variety of people naked", or maybe "I am good at getting a variety of people to spend time with me". Dating is testing, and generally with a hope of a mutual desire to become closer and enjoy spending more time together in the future. Why should anybody make that into a game unless they really enjoy emotional confusion and inconsistency? Variety is fine, but it is normally just a process of finding a favorite. That goes for food, wine, clothing, cars, and yes ... people. Sure, I suppose that people have a lot of reasons to "date", but in general it is assumed that if you recycle your friends and do not remain close to them, something is not working so well. Dating is a microcosm of the same. I do not offer dating advice, but I guess you may say that I was damn good at dating. My instances of good dating resulted in being married to the woman of my dreams and enjoying raising our three children together. Did dating change in that time since I dated? No. Dating is dating, and it will always involve similar elements. Dating well involves respectfulness, kindness, interestingness, and being responsible enough to not go shitting on people by playing games with them.
