I'm now covering a sub chapter called "The Chamleon Syndrome"
Q. What is the chameleon syndrome?
A. A quasi-supernatural transformation, the
chameleon syndrome is the predatory female's
unholy ability to become whatever the script
calls for in "hooking" a man. She will adopt
his viewpoints, his attitudes, his hobbies, and
his dislikes. Her personality will change to suit
his. She will enroll in classes, become a gourmet
cook, stop smoking, switch religions, accept
his friends, humor his jealousies, develop
a relationship with his relatives, or whatever
else is called for. She will change colors in the
rocks like a chameleon! Of all the traits exhibited
by predatory females, this chameleon
syndrome is one of the most lethal.
A. Because, amazingly, the predatory female
is completely sincere about her new behavior.
She isn't consciously aware of any deception.
She transforms involuntarily. She could take
a lie detector test and pass. There is nothing
crooked in her mind. Consequently the male
detects nothing amiss because there is nothing
amiss. Everything is normal and natural. The
predatory female has matched herself with the
surrounding landscape; she adapted to her environment
for mating and survival. The male
innocently concludes he has met the "right"

Q. How long does the chameleon syndrome
A. As long as it takes to subdue the male,
which usually means the bonds of holy matrimony
and the enforcement powers of the
Q. Then what happens?
A. The adaptation is no longer necessary, the
spell is broken, and the colors begin changing
back to original. "We've grown apart," is
the familiar statement. "Our values have
changed." In truth, the chameleon has simply
relaxed to its natural, more comfortable
Q. You say "more comfortable exterior."
Are you implying the predatory female is
uncomfortable in the adapted colors?
A. Although unaware of it, she is often ill at
ease. Most people have seen an acquisitive
woman working hard to bring a man to the
altar. She may lose weight, become nervous
and fidgety, cry a lot, or develop insomnia.
These are signs of a chameleon chafing in her
temporary exterior and compose more trademarks
of a predatory female.
