Don't be clingy

Apparently even multimillionaire pop "stars" need to read Roissy's archives:
He recently professed his undying love for former girlfriend Hilary Duff, and vowed to spend 'the rest of my life getting back to her'. 
And despite rumours the Lizzie McGuire star has reconciled with her estranged husband Mike Comrie, Aaron Carter isn't giving up without a fight. [Didact: this implies that he actually can fight, a proposition that looks extremely doubtful.]
'I don't know who she is today, she doesn't know who I am today, but I would sweep her off her feet if I ever got a chance to again and fix what I did wrong,' he tells Entertainment Tonight, adding that  he 'absolutely' still loved the actress.
'I'm going to do everything in my power to fix those relationships in my life just like I want to fix the relationship I had with the love of my life,' he added. 'I'm not gonna give up on Hilary... ever.'
 
Last month, Carter took to Twitter to let his ex-girlfriend - who he split from 11 years ago when they were teenagers - know how much he misses her. 
The 26-year-old wrote: 'I'll spend the rest of my life trying to better myself to get back to her. I don't care what ANY of you think.' 
But he told Entertainment Tonight that Duff has yet to respond to his pleas. 
'That wasn't meant for the media or anybody like that. I didn't think about it really,' he said. 'I wasn't really looking for [a response] either. I'm sure she got the message.' 
Carter had also retweeted a photo calling Hilary, who's also 26, 'flawless,' showing her in close up with heavy make-up on. [Didact: Hmmm... Calling a woman wearing heavy makeup, which is designed to cover up flaws, "flawless"... #gammalogic?]
In a separate message, the former teen pop star then declared his true feelings with the sad message aimed at no one in particular: 'Don't be that stupid douche that loses the love of your life forever... Like me...' 
The guessing game came to an end when a fan asked Aaron straight up if he was referring to Duff, to which he simply replied, 'Sure am.' 
Aaron and Hilary dated on and off between 2001 and 2003, when they were barely teenagers.
Pass me a sick bag. The total lack of any semblance of game here is just nauseating. It's like this guy found a copy of Roosh's Compliment and Cuddle and, instead of doing what most sane men would do and say, "that's a short, amusing, and dispensable piece of satire", thought, "OMFG TEH BIBLE OF TEH GAME!!!"

Meanwhile, north of vag, Roissy- or Heartiste, or whatever the hell he is/they are called now- wrote a post about winning back an ex over seven years ago that Mr. Carter might find useful:
One of the hardest feats to accomplish is re-igniting an ex-girlfriend’s attraction for you, especially if she initiated the breakup.  Unlike guys, who are perfectly OK with return trips to the well no matter how dry, women have a no-looking-back switch that, when flipped, desexualizes the man she had spent months or years enslaving with her body...
Given this reality, your best bet for turning her around is to put your plan into action *before* she formally becomes your ex.   You have a short window of opportunity to do this.  The longer you have been with her the more warning she will give you with her change in behavior.  She won’t end a 2 year relationship overnight; you’ll have at least a month to clue in to the red flags.  Your number one priority, then, is recognizing the danger signals.  Infrequent or bland sex is of course an obvious indicator.  Look for delays in returning your calls and texts.  See if her eyes follow suit when she smiles (dead eyes are a dead giveaway).  Tone of voice will always betray a woman – musical when she’s happy, girlish when she’s affectionate, breathy when she’s horny, monotone when she’s lost respect for you.  Watch for contemptuous mannerisms like eye-rolling or tch-ing.  If she starts asking you strange questions or leading conversations down bizarre paths, that is her way of smoking you out.  She no longer trusts you to engage in normal playful conversation with you.  Go with your gut.  90% of the time it will be right. 
Awareness of changes in her demeanor wins you half the battle.  You must also maintain complete state control.  If you give in to the rush of emotions that your traitorous brain floods you with when faced with an impending loss you will fail.  What is required of you is to CUT AND RUN before her doubts about you cement.  You must be the one to leave first.  Minimize face time.  Don’t call her. Be friendly but ambiguous.  Don’t inquire into her life.  Laugh off her crappy attitude.  Most importantly, act as if nothing is wrong.  If she senses you are acting aloof out of spite the spell will be broken.  Eventually, she will wander back to you, bewildered and intrigued, filled with doubt about her hasty judgment.  You will resume a pattern of dating and sex that eerily resembles the first few weeks together.  NEVER give the game away that you knew she was losing attraction if you want to avoid rekindling her impression of you as a weak beta.
Mr. Carter has violated every single one of these tenets. This woman broke up with him 11 years ago, supposedly over rumours of infidelity (according to the article- I think I've made it clear by now that I DO NOT listen to pop music) and he still hasn't moved on. She has. (And you thought clinginess was annoying in women.) He has lost all state control by making his desperation a matter of public record. He is ardently pursuing a woman who has shown no real interest in him. He has actually lost sex rank relative to his ex, judging by the pictures in the article.

I am no expert at this sort of thing, but I'd say his chances of landing a date with his ex are less than zero. That's right, this cat has anti-game.

This, young men of the world, is why game is important. It avoids turning rich, capable young men (and this particular man is younger than me- I have distinct, and bad, memories of watching a 13-year-old Aaron Carter singing a truly horrible bubblegum pop song on TV when I was a teenager...) into pathetic punchlines to late-night jokes.
