The next subchapter is called "Self Destruction"
Q. Is there a pattern of self-destruction in the
A. Strangely, yes. The more predatory she
becomes, the more likely she is to do herself
in. In the advanced stages, she becomes her

The next subchapter is called "The Nature of the Beast"
Q. Can a predatory female ever be reconditioned
A. Never. They are perpetually driven to
stalk the earth, seeking whom they might
devour, and you should never, repeat never,
try to reform one. She'll only destroy you.
Moreover, don't rebuke her for her actions.
She is a slave to her predatory nature and
can't help herself. Concentrate instead on appreciating
her primal beauty, her hypnotic
moves, dodging the bullet, and emerging
unscathed from your relationship with her.
Remember, she likes you for completely different
reasons than you like her, and further,
sex means nothing to her. She can get all she
wants at the drop of a hat. An excellent reference,
when discussing the nature of the beast,
is Mildred Rogers from Maugham's Of Human
Bondage. She is the quintessence of the predatory
female's seductive, ruinous style. Of course,
Philip Carey's attempts to rehabilitate her
were completely fruitless.
"Despite my 30 years of research into the
