In the comedy How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days, Kate Hudson plays Andie, an advice columnist who decides to add a twist to her usual stories by writing a piece on how to make a guy break up with you after dating him for only 10 days. She pulls out all the stops in her experiment to get a cocky ad exec played by Matthew McConaughey to date and then dump her.
Of course Kate’s character in the movie knew exactly what she was doing to chase the guy off (and in the end love wins, romcom style) - but what if you’re not trying to drive someone away? Like a voter? Could you be making moves that turn voters off without even realizing it?
