Flirting Fails: Dudes Who Drag Their Dates Into Sports Talk

Even if a girl likes you and shows it by feigning interest, don’t be one of those dudes who ensnares his date in the quagmire of sports talk. As you’re getting excited by your good fortune to find a girl who makes you think she likes going over the finer points of the zone defense, she’s drying up like a Central Valley megadrought.

Just because you’ve found a girl who’s willing to be a good sport about your sports fanaticism, doesn’t mean you should test her resolve. You want to get laid? Drop the sports talk, and start communicating with her in the language of love: her own voice.

        PRO TIP: When you’re tailgating at the big game, and all the Betas are talking sports, you’re talking EvoPsych and Group Dynamics with the hot chick in the party who’s parked next to you: “See that gal over there – no, not her, the one in the grey plaid skirt by the blue Chevy Suburban – stop staring, don’t be so obvious, just glance at her. Now listen to me – see her husband, the balding guy who’s a little overweight, and his shoulders are slumping… she’s bored to death with her marriage to him, and she’s looking to ditch him and move up in the world. See how excited she gets when the tall guy ignores her, and then she tries to get the tall guy to pay attention to her? See her pushing her boobs at the tall guy? He’s the Bad Boy that she’s gonna cheat on her husband with… blah blah blah”

  5. It’s a challenge because often girls are very guarded about what they want to talk about and finding that is difficult. When you’re talking sports or politics or whatever… unless it’s a subject they personally find interesting or have a strong view on things grind to a half. One question I often ask girls when I meet and start moving towards comfort is “What’s inspiring you this week?” They’re often shocked by the question. No guy has ever asked them about this and that shock is an IOI. Often they struggle…sometimes they’ll bring up something and that forms the basis for another spike: either a neg or tease or a share—or further probing. If a girl moves the topic towards her shoes or her latest dress purchase, I will find a way to tease her about it or just move the topic away from it…or probe deeper: “you have an eye for nice things I find that attractive…” and then move the topic towards something more sensual: Colours, shape and form….something that could sexualize it.

    That’s why the neg is so powerful. It immediately changes the tone around her and it’s your frame.

    I’m finding with some girls…I have totally nonsensical conversations or text exchanges and yet, we eventually meet up and bang.

    It means you don’t have to be a brilliant conversationalist, you just have to be interesting and intriguing.

    How is a challenge because it comes from an internal place of confidence and contentment. My game is best when I approach from a place of internal calm…about whatever. If I’m in any way worried, angry, rattled about anything—the cab driving taking a wrong turn and trying to over-charge me earlier in the day…it impacts my game.

    • Good stuff wala… I’m going to use that line.

      Now when you use a line like this, any kind of question like this you need to be prepared… First she will often just say “IDK what about you?” because many girls will be shocked and go blank. You need to be ready for this and if you are thinking GAME, have 2 or 3 moves ready… Fist if she goes IDK don’t just answer her… hold her to it. “asked you first” “oh no you’re not one of those boring girls” etc depending on the vibe. Then after she gives her answer she will usually round back on you, HAVE ONE. Have a few, depending upon what she needs more of to move things along, negging, teasing, comfort, rapport, DHV’ng. Have the whole scene ready with a few different variations and DRIVE it towards where you want to go.

      It’s not just asking a question, it’s a whole process… this is the seduction process, not the seduction question.

      “How is a challenge because it comes from an internal place of confidence and contentment. My game is best when I approach from a place of internal calm…”

      Same here… I find it’s all state related. State is emotional and physical energy PLUS no scarcity mindset. Scarcity mindset is more than just if you are banging other girls or not, it’s if you are too invested in any kind of specific outcome… that energy will inhibit your seduction.

      • @Sentient I was dancing with girl recently. I’d seen her around but never paid much attention. But on that night she looked great, she had amazing legs.

        Me: “Are you a figure skater or ballerina?”

        Her: eyes light up…”No, why?”

        Me: Those legs… she beams, starts blabbing about something—I can’t remember.

        We dance. Then I ask: “What inspires you about Latin dance?

        Her: “The connection with my partner, the music, you?

        Me: Deadpan: “Those legs…”

    • “Sometimes I game girls for the fun of it.”.

      I lost my virginity on my wedding night. Our divorce was final a week shy of twenty years from our first date. Just so you can see where I am coming from.

      Took me a year to try. Found game. Found validation to rebuild shredded ego with hot, young girls.

      I got laid by about 5 different girls that first year in game. The first (pickup, second lay) was a fluke, and hot as hell. It set the bar high. It showed me what was possible. No point in having lesser experiences if it was just going to be casual sex. After that (for me) crazy year I settled down and mostly flirt. I am only up to 11. I often choose not to try to close. It is enough of a smile to know I probably could.

      If it isn’t going to top the ex-ballerina doing a back-bend and holding it for 5 minutes when I almost fucked her off the bed, what would be the point?

      Aww, who am I kidding? To paraphrase Ron White, Once you’ve fucked one hot chick…

  33. Sports knowledge is really just a layman’s intellectual outlet. They are highly strategic and rule-based enterprises that really only appeal to the male brain. However, unlike the chemistry/physics/computer theorist, men who attach highly to sports at least get the social currency of fitting in to some extent.

    The flip side? Unlike scientific intellectualism, sport knowledge has really turned into some masturbatory experience where aging (or young I guess also works) white men can’t get enough of their favorite all-star negroes to appreciate the libidos they don’t have instead of actually facilitating them. Hell, most white male kids hate watching football; all it ever made my cousins and I want to do was go outside and play it ourselves! Over the course of time, though modern corporatist morals extinguish that fire.

    As for women, they like sports because guys show passion during the games. After all, women just really want to be around alphas. More than sexing them I swear they just get high off being around them (perhaps pheromonal….)? But I just have trouble believing they have much respect for a cuck who is always on his fantasy team with a beer gut and black mans jersey on.

I was like,”Why did she flake? or Why I didn’t get the same results as with other girls?”

    I realized my personal hobbies or profession didn’t mean shit to women.
    Celebrity gossip, fashion, or fun activities are a million times better to talk about. Even if you go to a game date, at the game they still want to talk about something else. They’re nothing but a distraction, unless it’s a sport team the love then they’ll shut up and watch the game. But that is still rare!

    In my younger days, I dated a girl who loved sports. Every guy I ran into would say, “Man, you’re lucky. She’s hot and into cool stuff.” It’s nothing admirable. What they are is a niche market…a subset of girls who decide they’ll adopt men’s likes/dislikes to get the inside track, parade as “one of the guys”, and use that “edge” to cut in front of regular women in the sexual marketplace. This will work for a girl when she’s 22 and wants a boyfriend, but not for a lady trying to land a husband.

    These women bet all their chips THINKING guys want a woman who wears hoodie sweatshirts, tells dick jokes, can sport an Aaron Rodgers jersey, and chug pitchers of beer with the best of us. It’s years down the line that they realize men respond to a woman whose interests are feminine, but by then they’ve already hit The Wall harder than Ray Rice on an elevator ride.

    When the buzzer finally blares, you get a 30-year-old woman sitting at TGI Friday’s that everyone in the circle has gotten a blowjob from. She’s sporting 15 extra pounds from all the beer and has zero female friends because they know better than to trust her around their men.

As has been pointed out on CH many times chicks dig exciting men and don’t give two fucks about what actually makes a man exciting to them and they don’t waste that feeling by over examining it.

    Man, nothing more boring than watching paint dry … which reminds me of a story from this paint factory in Kuala Lumpur.

    This engaging young guy who mixed the color profiles, well, he developed a crush on the lovely young Chinese woman who worked in Quality Control. He’d have to bring her samples from time to time … she was very professional, he could never get anything started. She wouldn’t laugh at his jokes, wouldn’t give him but the minimum professionally permissible eye contact, he could never even get her to smile.

    But he never stopped thinking about how to make an impression. He had lots of time, lots of ladies to entertain on the factory floor, but she was a challenge, and he was an enterprising young man. He felt destined for greater things.

    He thought, yea, watching paint dry .. nothing more boring than that. Isn’t that basically what he did all day?

    So one day he brought the young lady a new sample – something he’d mixed himself. Instead of swabbing the sample on the softwood planks he carried around, he swabbed two broad daubs of the paint under his eyes.

    She stepped back in alarm. He told her, softly, “Just wait. It won’t take long. This is a very special custom body-paint, made for Brazil, for Carnival. Yes, no order sheet. It’s top secret. Only you and me and the CEO know about it. But watch … it’s magic. As it dries, the image of the most beautiful girl in Kuala Lumpur will emerge. It’ll take some time, two minutes, but bear with it. You’ll see.”

    As the paint dried, it went from matte to a reflective sheen. The young girl saw her own image emerge just below his. It was magic! She smiled. And then she saw in her smile, and in the mirror of this drying paint, how beautiful she was.

    Yes, I agree about sports being boring. But watching paint dry? Come on, have some imagination.

    That said, go Dodgers!

  41. In the Little Leagues of game, talking sports may signal that a man is not an omega. It shows interest in a mainstream activity and that the man has thoughts besides anger and desperation.

    [CH: sure. nothing wrong with talking sports with male buddies. the problem is those men who project their male interests onto women and talk sports with their dates. women don’t give a shit (at best) and are actively turned off (at worst).]
