Disqualification Theory is an expansion of the neg. It is a social tactic based on the idea that what a woman can’t have, she wants more. It is a large part of indirect game as it can disarm a woman from thinking that the man is hitting on her. It can correlate to pre-selection theory as well – as if a man is taken, he is like a forbidden fruit to other women.
A disqualifier is the direct application to the disqualification theory. Examples of a disqualifier:
1. “If I weren’t gay, you’d be so my type.”
2. “I’ve got something to tell you…there’s something in your teeth.”
3. “You are just like a bratty little sister. Do you ever stop?”
