Street Kiss Close Analysis

Krauser passed along a video of his buddy doing a street pickup which culminated in a kiss close, and asked if I’d like to review it. Certainly.

I’ll do a view-by analysis, and highlight what I think are parts which demonstrate important game tactics and/or principles. As regular readers may know, Krauser is a proponent and practitioner of direct game, and particularly direct day game, so this video may surprise some of you who aren’t used to seeing bold approaches in action.

Krauser step-by-step analyzed this video as well on his own blog, but I decided to do my analysis before reading his breakdown. I was curious if our judgments would synchronize.

PS Yad’s documented street kiss close, which garnered some amount of fame, was reviewed here. Anyhow, onto the video:

0:00 – He approaches from the side, slightly in front of her, and has to backstep a bit. I think this is the best approach angle, because it looks like he just noticed her, and acted on impulse, as opposed to looking like he was stalking her.

0:10 – First deliberate kino. He lightly touches her on the forearm. Kino should occur early in the interaction, and be subtle. The kino also serves to slow her to a stop and drag her into his space.

0:15 – Audio is bad in this part of the video, but I think he asks her what nationality she is, or where she’s from. Direct game often uses brief, “stage setting” indirect openers. There is a lot of overlap between direct and indirect.

0:16 – He shakes her hand and positions himself so that she has to face him and stop walking. Smooth move. He does not let his hand linger long in hers. That’s an example of “pulling away” before her guard is up.

0:30 – I can’t translate, but it looks like he’s asking her a qualification question, and rewarding her with a short shoulder hug which he quickly disengages.

0:38 – “Can I be your friend?” This is the “official” direct opener, but recall that the actual initial opener was more indirect. Also, note his facial expression. There is no neediness being telegraphed.

1:03 – This sequence is extremely direct. “Do you have a BF?” “I would like to get to know you.” etc. But wait. At (1:11), he executes a combo pullback/neg when he tells her he just had a drink of wine and couldn’t remember her name. This is an “indirect-direct” game technique, designed to project both intent and value.

1:18 – He gets her name before he offers his. This isn’t a huge deal, but in general it’s a good idea to “reward” women with your name after they have given theirs. Just throwing your name out there first tends to smack of betatude and desperation.

1:28 – “I guess it would be a bit weird…” Preemptively verbalizing social tension or interest can alleviate it, and helps a girl get comfortable with you. Fleshing out her own thoughts is a way to connect with her.

1:36 – “I don’t know, what can we do?” Assume the sale.

1:46 – First real compliment, but notice he says it after she has agreed to see him again. Reward. Also, describing her eyes as “genuine” is more interesting than saying they’re pretty, or something similar like that. It’s less about physical features, and more about tapping into the contours of her soul.

1:52 – She is a bit nervous and throws out a minor objection (some may call it a shit test, but it’s not. it’s more like a female reflex to discharge the building sexual tension): “You’re so fuuuunny.” Notice he doesn’t apologize for his impertinence or back track in any way. He simply announces to her: “I just say what I feel.”

2:15 – I would like to point out his excellent alpha body langauge. He stands tall, rarely leans into her, and smiles cockily, all while maintaining easy eye contact.

2:38 – “I’m very forward, aren’t I?” Again he verbalizes the sexual tension, which helps condition her to his forwardness.

2:44 – He lays his hands on her shoulders, and strokes her hair a couple of times. Major kino escalation. Do you see her shrieking for the cops like an enraged feminist who thinks she just got raped? Nope. Looks to me like she’s smiling and very happy.

3:06 onward – There’s nothing wrong with capitalizing on your inherent strengths. Notice the face to boob contact. The touching has increased exponentially.

3:15 – “Well, I like you.” Goes for kiss. Rejected! But look closely… she closes her eyes and puckers her lips in anticipation just before her anti-slut defense kicks in. This girl is interested but ancient evolved mental algorithms are screaming through her neurons and pulling her back to the “chased” role.

3:20 – “You give me a kiss then.” Does he get flustered? No. His expression hardly changes from moments before the rejection to moments after. By pointing at his cheek, he deftly pushes her back into the “chaser” role, and the dynamic again reverts in his favor.

3:30 onwards – “Is it too soon to kiss each other?” “I’m very persistent aren’t I?” His strategy rests largely on airing the awkwardness that is naturally occurring in any direct street pickup.

3:42 – I like how he transitioned from “Let me take your number”. It was used as a springboard to molest her mouth. But he’s getting lots of IOIs… extended hand holding, hair grooming, dilated pupils (I can’t see that, but I bet they are.)

4:11 – Nice cherry-shaped ass. American women, take note.

4:28 – “I’m really bad with names, you know?” Her hamster hears: “This guy does this s a lot. He’s preselected. Engage Bartholin’s glands!”

4:40 – “Remember we kissed and had a nice moment together.” Anti-flaking tactic.

***

A couple of final thoughts. He’s fairly good-looking and she’s foreign. This will alter the pickup dynamics a little, but not as much as you would think. Street kiss closes are just as hard for good-looking guys with no game as they are for ugly guys with no game. Unless you are famous, most hot babes aren’t going to give up their lips to a stranger they just met, if he has no game. Yad, for instance, scores kiss closes on the street, and he’s no looker by any stretch. Nevertheless, this type of strong, bold, direct game will come naturally easier to men who aren’t so homely that women immediately throw up bitch shields or turtle and walk faster upon approach. Direct game of this nature is probably more suitable for either 1. good-looking guys or 2. guys who have rock solid inner game and belief in their worth to good-looking women. Men less gifted in the physical department and with inner game issues would likely see more success with indirect game, in which they can use time and gab to talk away their poor looks.

Also, I get a lot of emails from older men asking if this sort of direct street game will work for them. I don’t know Krauser’s age, but my guess is that it will be tougher if the age difference is significant (10+ years), and the man acts and dresses like his age. Steve, the guy in this video, looks to be in his late 20s or 30s, older than the girl, but not so much older that he triggers an instant blowout. If Krauser is reading this, I’d be curious if he knows any older PUAs who are successful with this type of game.

I just read Krauser’s commentary, and for the most part we don’t contradict each other on any major points. He makes a good observation about indirect body language working in concert with direct verbal intention, and vice versa. For instance, Steve’s strong eye contact directly communicates intent while his verbal statement is indirect. He also says that most of the attraction is built nonverbally, within the first 10 or 20 seconds of the interaction, by Steve’s masculine body language and forthrightness, and that most of the communication is taking place in her hindbrain. That first impression is absolutely critical, and it’s why you must master the right alpha male body language before tackling the verbal part of game.

Krauser notes as well that Steve never verbally DHV’ed (i.e., intimated his high value). He relied on his value expressing itself through his directness.

Check out Krauser’s game blog. It’s pretty good.

      • If I were considering the possibility of a LTR during an approach I’d probably never approach, Or I’d botch it, or end up ejecting when I did. Usually my focus is on having fun because close or fail that’s the purpose of game.

        I don’t even consider the possibility of a LTR until after I’ve had the opportunity to evaluate her proficiency in the bedroom. And of course if she gives it up the first night she’s immediately ruled out of LTR consideration and relegated to f-buddy status.

        I will admit, that to me, there is hardly anything sexier than an attractive woman with a nice body who dresses conservatively and doesn’t feel the need to “flaunt it”. One of the reasons that when I do find myself in a LTR it’s frequently with women from academic or medical professions.

        I liked your comment, so I felt a need to chime in.

      • Usually my focus is on having fun because close or fail that’s the purpose of game.

        Glad you put it that way, because that’s our difference of approach in a nutshell. I learned early on not to go to battle over the untouchable assumption in forums like these that life is about “having fun.” You either grow out of that facile motivation or you don’t. Suffice it to say, it is a child’s inadequate approach to life that comes with a “best sold by” date. And no amount of argument will dislodge the trajectory of a kid who is young, dumb, and full of come.

        Which, for the most part, is fine. The problem occurs when we try to take this immature view of life and apply it to mature circumstances — as this site does — based on the weird idea that the ethos of youth should be the ethos for everyone for the rest of their lives. Peter Panism leads to shameful self-unawareness: after age 30, wearing sportswear out to the bar, baseball caps, colorful shirts with slogans, untucked tees, jeans, shorts, sneakers or sandals, and pants without belts — rather than dressing one’s age. Coloring your hair like an aging cougar, imitating children and enslaving oneself to dopey fashion trends rather than developing a restrained but still unique, classic aesthetic. An adult couture.

        The default mode in our (quickly collapsing) frivolous era is to worship youth. This is nothing more than backward-directedness. We remember those heady first days of independence, away from mommy and daddy, and like junkies seek bigger and better freedoms regardless of the opportunity costs (family, vocation, wealth, education). Show me the 25-year-old who determines to make “having fun” the focus of his life, I will show you the 45-year-old who is still obliviously wearing the fashions of 20 years ago. Isn’t that the way of it?

        Anyway, to allow the 20-year-olds (and 20-year-old mentality) to define “the purpose of game” is like letting first graders pick their lesson plans. We have been through their station, and we have experienced the limitations they pretend do not exist. Age and death are the primary limitations we can all plan against — the memento mori is appropriate for any stage of a life well-lived.

        But to put it on more proximate terms to the dumb comers: there is a point of supersaturation, when the 51st or the 101st or the 1,001st pursuit of the same thing doesn’t just fail to inspire, it becomes positively repulsive, the nausea of gluttony. You will reject this, refuse its very possibility, and indeed deny the very perceptiveness required to acknowledge the paradoxical despair that lies beyond surfeit. That last deficiency will fuck up your life in the end. Because if you refuse to acknowledge the obvious — like women trying to get pregnant near menopause — you will begin telling yourself “I still got it!” as a way to stave off the despair for one more year, day, or hour, when the inevitability of your mortality should have directed your life from the beginning.

        Philosophy is “learning how to die.” Look into it before you get that terrifying x-ray, or near-fatal car wreck, or betrayal from a loved one. There is plenty of “fun” along the way. Putting your stage of life in context next to the others allows that fun to be uninhibited in ways young men can’t conceive possible.

You don’t need long interactions, with “comfort”. The idea is all wrong. Comfort and attraction occur simultaneously.

    When I do this for real I typically have 1-3 minute interactions like this and they rarely flake.

      • Steve did well. He is an example of the courage and command and persistence that make up 90% of success in anything. And he got it all on video to show how it’s done. Sincerest applause.

        But you are right, Maya, and you’ll probably be the only one to say it. (You are our Troll Jester, authorized to blurt out anything in the king’s court because we have long been inoculated to your end-of-ova senility of the wall-approach. You are given latitude to blurt out nonsense with the hope you will occasionally land on the truth. This is one of those times, be proud!)

        There was no art to Steve’s method, no room to allow his target to become comfortable with the sweet assault. Granted, this exigency goes with the circumstance: there is a small window of attention exploitable on a busy city block, and he made the most of it.

        At the same time, let’s be frank about what happened there. From the start, the mark was looking for any way to squirm free. Her foreigner’s deference, cultural confusion, and fear of appearing rude made an elegant escape impossible. We will read more into the result than it can bear because we admire his balls. Try cornering a sassy black American Boomshiqua (not that anyone would, but you get the contrast), see if she is as apologetic as Colombian Chiquita. Steve gets props for maximizing the situation and for the persistence noted above, but subtraction for degree of difficulty.

        I’m with you, Sweet Baby Maya Honeytits. These kind of conquests are exhilarating but shallow. In fact, they seem to be a primary motivator in the PUA sub-industry — not whether you win but the thrill of participating. They are satisfied with bodies, souls are reduced to a mere complicating factor. The challenge becomes a bore once you experience the thrill of directness, and the fact that you live to fight another day after being shot down. There isn’t much to blunt forwardness than a numbers game. Going for the simple bang, or even a string of bangs, is like hitting lay-ups, pun intended. But there is nothing like draining a three.

        We are the minority of two among the tall tales and heroic self-congratulation of this locker room atmosphere. We’re searching for love among the ruins. You and me, Maya baby. It’s just you and me.

        That aside, and since the haters will misunderstand my critique, I will emphasize again that Steve is a model to be inspired by even in his less-than-optimal performance, which he admits to (“I was acting up for the video”). The typical pick-up amateur would be lucky to have Steve’s minor infelicities to deal with. Sheer testicular fortitude will compensate for almost everything, and that is the real lesson of the video. Napoleon: “Audacity, audacity, always audacity.”

The kino escalation and “Assume the sale” are vital. On my first couple of interactions, her ASD came up and she was resisting. But I kept ploughing on. It’s moving forward. Part of this is to continue DHVing her, not being needy, taking charge.

        For the same reason women have beta nice-guy orbiters.

        If you find it easier to fall in love with a very young (17-25) girl then you should find her and stop ‘using’ older women you don’t really like …

        I think that’s the idea.

      • ‘For the same reason women have beta nice-guy orbiters.’

        Most normal women don’t have beta nice guy orbiters. I find it immoral to lie to someone who is in love with me and use him for his money or emotional support (like betas are able to give any kind of real emotional support)
        Very very few women are actually doing this beta orbiter thing …

        “So you would sleep with me (I’m 27) only in case you couldn’t get anything better (younger)?
        Yes.”

        OK. I hope this is not true for all men? I wouldn’t be happy if someone settled for me only because he couldn’t get a young girl he really wants … I wouldn’t feel special. I want someone to fall in love with me because of me and forget about my age … It’s probably very difficult to have a relationship with someone who constantly feels that you are not particularly hot or lovable and that you are not the girl of his dreams just some old broad who is still better than nothing. I really hope there are (normal) men who are able to fall in love with an older girl/woman who is past her prime.

  16. There is a limit on how beta a guy can be and still to pull it out; but a valid,imho, form of direct game is Hot Car Game. I mean, lots of girls/women/old women can be talked into the passenger seat of any Mazerati or Lotus, many Porsches and even a few old Mustangs. As far as it goes. Even better is the Atom Ariel. They are not common in the US. They are worshipped in the UK and by TopGear on the BBC because they are made of a few strands of aluminum pipe and carbon fiber and when equiped with a serial-killer engine that can take your female passenger from zero to pissing herself in about 3 seconds.
    I am not saying that women get off properly in regard to hot cars. Good engineering does not tingle the gina unless the brain that owns the gina has been talked into the rt seat of a “car” that can already flatten her eye balls with 1st,2nd, and 3rd gear starts.Uber fast cars provide to the female a bit of drama, a tint of danger, maybe a hint of dhv/ and a physical organism …. on a good track

  17. Well… i’ll speak for some Latinas (I was born in Latin America). We are definitely used to a different kind of (more direct ) approach from men.
    i actually dated a Colombian guy in my late teens (15-17). When I say date I mean it was a LTR. Such an asshole.

    we met on the street, direct approach style. He was the first and only man I ever met on the street not to say that I wouldn’t consider it but normal “white guys”in nyc have never approached me directly.

    I can’t remember what he said.

    I happen to know quite a few colombian women. Known amongst latinas for their beautiful faces and fine bodies. This girl is an 8-9 imo.

    He is pretty gorgeous as well. The accent is hot, his body is in great shape as far as I can tell and he is hot. With a masculine face and nice lips. Not pretty is what I’m trying to say. A 9 because he is my type.

    This was really great pickup. He was charming me through the screen. I wish I had been her. I don’t think I would have gone for the kiss but maybe she’s not completely sober?

    I’m wondering if the language barrier could have prevented shit tests on her end? I’m sure he could have handled that easily but still…

    The language barrier may have facilitated his pickup.
    She definitely thinks he’s hot, she can’t stop smiling. Even in the few moments where there was a lull in the convo she seemed very interested and engaged. I think this is where his good looks come into play.

    I would agree with Heartiste that being good looking helps this type of direct game esp with such a hot girl. I can’t see myself stopping on the street for just any guy. An opening for an average looking guy to run game would be minuscule possibly zero.

      I have to say I’m impressed with Steve’s performance there.

      I did a pickup today with someone as hot (hotter according to my taste) and with more than twice the age, but it was anything but direct game and it didn’t have more than a kiss on the cheek close after an hour’s instadate.

      I approached a park near a train station where I saw two benches each with two hot girls but one which also had a boy in his late teens. I chose the path of least resistance and sat on the bench next to the two unaccompanied ones.

      I sat there “reading” my text messages or email or whatever they thought I would have been doing. I didn’t get any clues from their conversation to use to make a tailored open so I finally turned and casually asked where a certain part of town was. They said they were not local. I turned back to my phone. But then the hotter one said she’d call a local friend and find out for me. That was my green light. I knew at that moment we were going to be friends. She got the info and then when I thanked her, she pressed on by asking where I was from. A great conversation ensued with her and her friend. She was a 9 and her friend was a 7 fighting a weight problem that, if solved, could make her a 9 again as her old online photos now show her to have been. Both are 21 now.

      I then said that I should find a supermarket to buy a week’s worth of food. This was me disqualifying them by signaling that I was going to walk away without getting their numbers. She then said that she and her friend would accompany me. It was clear she didn’t want to be rejected.

      In this case, I clearly didn’t need direct game because she was pushing the envelope herself and making an instadate happen.

      As the three of us walked down the street, she asked if I thought women of her country were hotter than american women. I answered that they were and so much in fact that girls really had to prove to me that they had brains and personality because otherwise they were interchangeable.

      She looked pained and then said “I’m only looking grungy today because we’re traveling (from a town 2 hours away), I look really great in a dress and with makeup.”

      I couldn’t believe she was trying to qualify herself to someone who could be her father like that, especially when I later saw online how hot she is with makeup and in a dress.

      In this case, I guess it was my not going direct that caused this need to qualify herself. A girl in jeans in a town where hot girls were walking around in mini-dresses, is liable to have a complex. Men can exploit that complex no matter how old they are compared to the girl in jeans.

      When grocery shopping, we would move into each other as we examined the ripeness of various fruits and vegetables.

      And I didn’t buy them anything.

      The three of us parted along the lines of “We’re going to visit each other’s cities and hang out more often”. They wanted to meet me again tonight but I have other commitments.

      The jury will still be out on whether direct or indirect game is better.

      One important thing these girls talked about which merits more warnings from CH is this:

      They said that a friend of theirs has a sugar daddy a lot older than her who is so stupid that he just gave her an ipod when they’ve never even kissed before. He’s one of those tradcon fools who thinks he’s sweeping her off her feet while “valuing her commitment to wait until she gets married before “giving it up.”

      The girl despises him for his naivete and plans to rob the fool blind. He’s never going to get even a kiss and he will probably spend thousands more in dollars for this farce to continue. He still thinks she’s being the “good girl of a tradcon’s dreams” when she grimaces and turns her head when he tries to kiss her. When will these conservative guys get a clue?

      This blog can’t warn men enough not to ever give girls money for just their company and to especially avoid “honoring chaste behavior” when it could be that she’s just not attracted. Girls have a genetic need to know that, if you’re going to reward them financially at all, it will only be after they put out. Otherwise they will instinctively know you don’t respect yourself.

      It appears the average western guy over 40 is a chump like this guy.

      His success mostly comes from his confidence and not physical appearance. Confidence can be faked, however because he has had a lifetime of confidence building from his looks, it just comes more easily to him.

        This is the sociopath/Asperger Syndrome interpretation of what went on there —

        [heartiste: really now! i dunno, bub. i’ve seen a lot of women politely turn down men they don’t want without resorting to opening their mouths to them.]

        no understanding of human sub-verbal cues.

        [she was hesitant at first, but his strong dominating confidence made her gradually weak in the knees.]

        When women are trapped, the more feminine ones give in rather than fight.

        [funny how they never seem to do this when trapped by beta males.]

        The fact that she took the next opportunity to escape being cornered is indicative of her desire to flee, not the fact of her momentary submission to the kiss.

        [maybe she had to poop?]

        Look, sometimes you have to bull through her apprehension — to exhibit the courage for both man and woman. And in our age of timid pussyfooting, it is exhilarating to see a man being a man. But if he truly had “superb game,” he would have provided her the space to surrender. Instead he overplayed his weak hand and made her fidgety and panicked. What’s the problem with noticing this? He needed to fine tune the delivery, is all. There’s no shame being off by a couple degrees, it is a hard thing to calibrate, especially in the moment.

        I suspect most of us here have pushed a woman just like he did. But it serves no one to pretend that was the smoothest of operations. Spanish women are deferential, you can take advantage of that to a point. Forwardness is a part of game, but if it’s your whole game, you’re clumsy and unsophisticated.

        [steve’s type of game is not my style, and like i wrote in the post, his sort of persistent direct game is going to fail more for men who are homely. nevertheless, it is a window into how readily a woman will chuck societal convention and her own misgivings when under the spell of a dominant man gunning for what he wants.]

  27. Chateau readers, I’d like your advice. I’ve banged this one girl twice before, and would like to keep her in rotation—sort of—but the problem is that she moved to a city few hours away because of her studies. Now, she’s occasionally going to be around here, but I’m not going to have knowledge of that so not sure how to handle this.

    I’ve so far figured two possibilities: a) tell her to let me know if she’s going to be around, b) contact her randomly some time in the future and ask if she’s planning a visit and hook up with her. The latter option seems like crapshoot, but feels like better odds than expecting her to make a move which from experience seems unlikely. Of course, there’s also c) do nothing, but she hasn’t really shown initiative in the past.

    Is there something else I might’ve missed?

I used to get quick makeouts from attractive girls on occasion long before I ever heard of game, and I’m mostly a beta loser, although in these situations alcohol released my “natural game” and primed the girls as well. It’s all about being talkative and forward and going for it. Plus, I was living in a Latin country…

    One thing that hasn’t been noted is that he gets the makeout after acting as if he is resigned to just getting her number. She participates actively because she wants to show him that he she really is interested in meeting him again and wants to give an indication of that, rather than letting him slip away into oblivion. When he tries to kiss her again at that the end, she rebuffs him as if to say “now you’re just being cheeky”, if you want to see me again, you can. Of course he probably doesn’t want to. Girls are much more future-oriented; guys are more about right now.

  32. Having recently discovered your blog, I’m fascinated to discover that men have been using “game” on me for years, without my realizing what was going on!
    I was so naive as to think that lines such as, “You have amazing posture” or “Do you whiten your teeth?” were simply genuine expressions, not attempts to eventually get me in bed.
    As for the kiss close, I think it’s romantic and sexy. I once had a guy walk towards me on the street, say nothing but “I need to tell you something,” conspiratorially lean in as if to whisper in my ear and then kiss me. Granted, he was good-looking and it wasn’t a makeout session like the one in the video, but I (a virgin at the time) did nothing but blush. I certainly didn’t view that guy as a rapist, more as the hero of my personal fantasies for months to come.
    Any guy truly confident enough to use the direct approach (not just faking it) would get points with me. Maybe not my number, if I didn’t find him physically attractive, but at least my respect. And I’m pretty sure I’m not unique. So go for it guys! Spice up some girl’s day!

But to be considered in the first place for this kind of pickup, looking average makes it 100x more difficult. You’re right guys should lift more, but how many remember that?

  43. A key point is where he asks if Colombian men are “forward”. Her “YE-E-SS!” is loaded with subtext: 1) she is used to this kind of aggressiveness 2) she doesn’t ALWAYS like or allow it, but in this case… “Yes, please proceed!”. He reads this perfectly and amps up the kino and goes for the makeout.

    This is the way to game if you are tall AND handsome. In my case, I’m not as tall or handsome, but I can work more creatively than what is shown here, with “push” mixed in with the “pull” (Steve is using mostly pull here), as well as position-changes and micro-venue changes. Basically, I am more impudent and leading, and don’t rely so much on just looming in proximity giving off handsome alpha-fumes to get her properly wet….

    Also, if I really want the lay, I won’t generally makeout at the meet, instead I go for the neck and ear, with sexual kino, then withdraw to leave her wanting more and not triggering BF-receptors. In some cases, no makeout until after sex, especially for attention-ho’s.

    • I asked Krauser at his blog once how many of those cold approaches are necessary to getting a new lay, suggesting 20. His response: if it was 20 I would approach 60 girls a day.

      According to Krauser and his buddy Jambone in the thick of it Krauser was averaging one new lay a month. Even a gu with male model looks like Paul Janka have to approach massively to get just a new lay. My own experience with cold approaching confirms such findings.

      Fun video though. Assuming it’s real a success story is always nice–but people need to know general conversion bracket odds though.

        I’m maybe a 7 looks-wise, tallish and starting to get good gym results, not that it really really matters. And I have a direct game trying to establish romantic connection and escalation quickly, pretty much like in the video. Although I don’t usually go for the insta-kiss. Gotta work on that.

        My main problem is that I don’t approach sets. But I don’t care either, there are plenty of 8s, 9s and even 10s who are alone, or with one girlfriend (can’t really do more than 2 girls usually, and never when there’s a guy in the group).

        You can say that 3 numbers on 3 approaches is 100% success rates, but I failed to approach a lot of girls because of sets, approach anxiety or whatever. The problem is not really the yield when your fundamentals are solid (most girls are nice and polite when you’re approaching confidently) but handling approach anxiety and fear of rejection.
        I wanted to approach at least 10 other girls yesterday, but I only approached 3. That’s nearly 80% failure rate, lot of room for improvement.

Everyone raves about Eastern European women, but they tend to be a bit colder and more businesslike, while Central European women are just as beautiful, but more laidback IMHO. We’re moving to America soon and I’m not really looking forward to it. I feel more competitive pressure to stay attractive in Europe, whereas in America I remember female co-workers would say, “You’re going jogging? Why?” and make fun of me for packing my own lunch instead of ordering KFC buckets with them. It sounds weird but it’s almost a point of pride to be lazy and not care about your appearance in many parts of America.

She says she’s not interested in that kind of thing, and for me, this coming from a stranger in that setting would have scared me in a very non-arousing way.

        Women do share an innate sexual nature, but not all of us share the same attitudes or preferences in the expression of that. We’re not all out to ride the cock carousel. I get that one of the points of this blog would seem to be that a proper understanding of women can get any one of them into your bed, but I think it’s easy to overlook the fact that while we might all be sexual creatures, we’re not all sluts. For some of us, the damage that’s accrued in the course of such behavior is simply not worth it.

  64. I just had this experience. An 18 year old model i met on ok cupid was supposed to meet me for a drink. She was late, i was having a double scotch so by the time she showed up–wearing short skirt, heels and looking older and hotter i was acting cool.

    She sat down, said she had been with her friend. I negged her about being late, initiated kino.

    I could see she was nervous to be with an older guy in a strange location. I bounced around from topic to topic.

    Leaned in to kiss her. At first she didn’t respond.

    Like Steve, i kept on ploughing on never acknowledging the rebuke.

    Bounced her around the club, tour, chatting, back down again.

    This time, full make out.

    All of this took about 30 minutes. Then made out again.

    She had to meet up with friends after and got spooked about meeting up to come over.

    But then she texted me the next morning to say hi.

    After the make out, the shit tests: “you do this with a lot of women” “ive’ seen your facebook photos, you’re with a lot of women”….

    Me: “You want a boy or a man”

    Then i toned down the player vibe. Told her she was cool, that i got a special feeling from her.

    The reason this works is because of the confidence of the guy. If you’re in any way second guessing yourself, you’re finished.

    No way could this have been staged. People watching me in action would have thought I’d known this girl for ages or that she was my long term girlfriend.

    The way she was sitting, looking at me, the way I was kinoing her.

    Pre-game me would have second-guessed everything and thought this video and others were staged…they’d have to be right? I mean what girl would ever do this?

    It’s all about looking her in the moment, the same way a mentalist is able to convince his subject to follow them….
