Spock’s Guide To Women- Assigning Logic To The Illogical
Many people know I have written a few books on love and marriage, but did you know that I am also an HUGE Star Trek fan, and have written about Kirk and Spock from the original Star Trek Series? I have nothing against Zachary Quinto, and I think he did a good job, but Leonard Nimoy is my Spock!
“Oh, on the Starship Enterprise There’s someone who’s in Satan’s guise Whose devil ears and devil eyes Could rip your heart from you At first, his look could hypnotize And then his touch would barbarize His alien love could victimize And rip your heart from you And that’s why female astronauts Oh, very female astronauts Wait terrified and overwrought To find what he will do Oh, girls in space, Be wary, Be wary, Be wary Girls in space, be wary We know not what he’ll do”- Lt. Uhura
A lot of guys would like to be as smooth as Kirk when it comes to romancing a woman, but there are some guys who think the Science Officer on the bridge of the Enterprise has more swagger with the ladies…
He is half-human and half-Vulcan. Caught between two worlds, Spock’s mind is in constant battle between his cold Vulcan logic and his warm, Human emotions. While his heart pumps “green ice water,” it knows loyalty, friendship and passion.
Mr. Spock is a complicated officer.
Although his romantic experience is short, he makes up for it in technique, control, and logic. Unlike the passionate nature of the Casanova of the Cosmos Captain Kirk, Spock’s mode of operation is calculated, cold, and distant.
–And it makes some women crazier than a mental patient from the Tantalus Penal colony!
By using the strategy of “playing hard to get”, Spock presents himself as a challenge and a mystery. When he romances a woman (see Chapter 4- “Romulan Commander”) Spock remains aloof, all the while implying his interest.
He lets his audience believe he is “Being Two Men” by showing his emotions (however controlled) to them. Mr. Spock lets some women believe that they understand him and know who he “really” is (See Chapters 3 and 5- “Christine Chapel” and “Leila Kalomi”).
Although it’s been said that “Cupid’s arrow kills Vulcans,” let’s take a look at a few of the times that Spock has been struck in the free downloadable report I wrote here:
