Written with warmth, wit, and sharp observations of how men get taken advantage of, this book gives men the tools to either avoid such relationships in the future or extricate themselves from their current situation. Using humorous case studies with theories incorporating psychology, social anthropology, and economic theory, the widely familiar yet rarely recognized social affliction called 'Poor-Sucker Syndrome’ is broken down and explained. The book sheds light on the emotional deceit of gold diggers and how men so haplessly fall for their calculated charms.
Poor-Sucker Syndrome is the single leading cause of damage to Mankind’s happiness: that is, a man becomes obsessed with a woman and is taken advantage of financially in a misguided pursuit of affection and affirmation—more precisely: leeched.
Various forms of the syndrome have been around since the beginning of civilization. It is so ingrained in us that a guy losing all his money to impress a girl is nothing new. And rarely do we frown upon the girl that is taking advantage of the man. Some people even look with envy on girls who can draw men in and get them to spend all their money on them.
Like any addiction, whether it’s to drugs, alcohol, or gambling, if given the right circumstances, all men are susceptible, though admittedly, some are considerably more pre-disposed than others. The same goes for the Poor-Sucker Syndrome. (I am myself a poor sucker in remission and constantly aware of the risks of relapse.)
Men contracting Poor-Sucker Syndrome are not necessarily losers, unattractive, or reckless from the outset. These are the typical effects that come as a result of contracting this disease. In fact, it is rather the opposite that the syndrome afflicts men that are overall successful. The prime marker that attracts leeches is for a man to be successful. However, times have radically changed, and almost any man is a high-risk target to be preyed upon by a leech. The reason is spelled EASY CREDIT.
