The tease doesn't have to be clever to work, it just has to be coming from the right place.
It's actually better that it doesn't have to be original, because if it did, then teasing would be a chore . It's about the vibe, not the content.
Here's an example of me teasing a girl and every time I do she busts out in laughter: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rzMx5TBiY6E
I wasn't saying clever or original, I was just being playfully provocative - teasing isn't so much about wittiness as it is about implying that the girl might not be good enough for you in some way.
That's a great point.
We learn to stop teasing through social conditioning (gotta stay in line at school/work. Then, we forget that teasing is natural and we actually resist learning it by making the excuse (that's not a natural part of my personality, I don't want to be fake).
Yeah man, if you're in the top .0001% of guys looks-wise game is going to be easier for you.
But if you're not that guy, what are you going to do? Just be a little bitch and not take what you want from life? "These male models don't get rejected, why should I have to get rejected? It's not fair!"
If that makes you feel like a winner, go for it.
To be clear, I'm not saying looks don't matter, and I'm not saying you shouldn't improve your appearance. I'm just saying your looks aren't an excuse.
I've pulled plenty of hot girls when I wasn't in the best shape. Sure, it's easier when you're ripped, but you don't want to turn into the guy who says,
"When I get to 12% body fat, then I'll start approaching."
Then you get to 12% body fat, and you think, "You know what, this isn't good enough, I'll start approaching when I get to 10% body fat."
Then you get to 10% body fat, and you think, "You know what, once I'm 8% body fat, then I'll look good enough to start approaching."
Fixating on something external becomes a never-ending treadmill.
Start taking action now, and improve your appearance while you also improve your game, confidence, etc.
I've had the same thing happen.
It's because I thought, "I really like this girl, I should treat her with more respect and be gentlemanly." And then, as a result, I stopped doing anything remotely charming or sexual. LOL
He's not ugly, but he's not that attractive man, it's his status and personality that make him so effective.
It's supposed to be cringy dude. The point is that even cringy lines can work if you deliver them with enough confidence.
Thanks for the feedback. I'm aware of all this, but part of me likes looking as bad as possible for getting footage - I think it's more inspiring to see a guy who's chubby and poorly groomed get results than it is to see a guy who's maxed out his looks. IDK I could go either way on this though.
As far as being overweight - I was in a relationship for over a year and gained over 40lbs. I just stopped caring. Lesson learned. Started counting calories and going hard at the gym, I'll be in good shape again soon.
However, I want to get footage while overweight to show that you can still succeed with women even if you're chubby.
Lol, it only seems like a fantasy if you don't actually go out and approach regularly.
I'm not suggesting anyone uses that line, I'm just pointing out that even off the wall, offensive lines can work if they're coming from the right place.
I didn't say it's okay, I said I was grateful for the harsh rejections I got. Totally different.
I don't think it's okay that my father died at the age of 39 due to his alcoholism. But I'm grateful it happened because it motivated me to improve as a person. You can see the value in the challenges in your life without being okay with them.
Also, I got slapped twice out of thousands and thousands of approaches. These weren't, "I want to hurt you kind of slaps," they were, "I'm offended by what you said," kind of slaps.
Every once in a while you're going to approach a crazy girl who reacts really weirdly - that is, unless you don't approach much.
Actually, that's not entirely true. Memories are very much tied into emotions, the stronger the emotion the more easily we can remember something.
If you think about the best date you ever want on, can you really remember what was said, or do you remember the experience of what happened?
I think the most useful attitude to have is one of optimistic skepticism. You want to be open to the possibility that you can change, you can improve, you can have an amazing life. But you're also skeptical, you don't believe something is true until you've tested it in your own life and gathered a good amount of evidence.
I wouldn't just believe an article like this as fact, but I would find the idea intriguing and test it out in my own life before dismissing it or accepting it.
That said, I'm pretty confident that flow states are a legitimate strategy for entering a highly confident state - I still get approach anxiety if I haven't gone out for a while, but when I build social momentum my anxiety disappears in the course of 15-30 minutes (usually).
I've also replicated this with a lot of guys and they are consistently amazed by how much they are able to change their own state for the better.
Just this week I helped a guy who had never even approached a girl, go from experiencing intense approach anxiety to easily getting 4 girls' numbers in 20 minutes (and he got one of them to meet him out on a date).
Yeah, be skeptical, but assuming the worst is a great way to paralyze yourself and give yourself an excuse to not even try to improve. The belief that success is impossible is a self-fulfilling prophecy.
Fair point. What I really meant to get across is that we hold better conversations with people we are comfortable with, but we get stifled when interacting with attractive women.
I'll replace the word good with decent as that would be more accurate.
If killing mastodons gets you laid, keep at it.
I like it, I'm going to try this out and see how it works.
I've already been doing daily habit tracking where I commit to do things like go to the gym every day, meditate, write, stuff like that and it's been working pretty well - however, having a more focused medium-term goal might give me that extra push to get more done.
then don't use kino until you're in a private location with her (her house, your house, or a hotel)
