An Important Lesson

If you notice a girl checks her fingernails by curling her fingers inward toward her palm, like a man would, you can bet she loves sex and will put out on the first date. She has also cheated on past boyfriends.

If she checks it with fingers outstretched, back of hand facing upward, she is going to be a drama queen with a heavy repertoire of shit tests. The more diva she looks when checking them in this fashion, the likelier she will make you wait more than a few dates for sex. A full ten seconds checking, turning her hand this way and that with nails glistening in the club lights, means she will flake on you.

A girl who doesn’t check her fingernails except for the most cursory glance, and despite your prompting, is a keeper.

You can get a girl to check her fingernails by mentioning something about her nail polish color, or the unusual way her fingernails grow and what that says about her. (Just make some shit up. For instance, “Oh, flat fingernails means you are very grounded.” Or, “Curved fingernails means you are hard to please.”) Watch for how she proceeds to look at her fingernails, and remember what this blog told you. Then sing silent hosannas to the knowledge dropped here.

    For those unable to read between the lines, you’re missing the possibilities for a “routine” in this. Women are obsessed with their nails, and they’re obsessed with trivial unsubstantiated pop psychology i.e., “chick crack”. Every woman has nails.

  17. This is part of an old early 1960’s schoolyard game. Ask someone to check their nails, the fist clenched vs outstretched hand. Then look at their ankle- if they look down and twist their leg, they’re a girl, if they bring it up and hold it with the foot pointed down, they’re a boy… I think the third was making a fist- it depended on whether they tucked their thumb in or not ( I’m not sure about the last test). The result was given as to how much of a boy or girl you were, in thirds; i.e., one third girl, two thirds boy sort of thing. Don’t know if there’s much truth in it or not, though. Does anyone remember for certain what the third test was?

  28. So I’ve been to my first date with this girl who checked her nails more often than other girls bbm. The curled way.

    However, fellow monks of the chateau, I want to ask you for your opinion.

    She’s hot. 8 years older than me, in her mid-30s. I wouldn’t go that far to call her a 9-10, but perhaps on a great day, some of you would agree on her being a 9. I was out with her two nights ago, having cocktails after giving her my n° in a nightclub last weekend.

    Apparently all her girlfriends are married and many have become mothers (this she tells me while I’m resting my hand on her leg). I changed the subject pretty fast, but the thought remained in my mind – what if she wants to use me in some twisted mating game, use my flesh and then let me go? Maybe I’m paranoid, but she’s this kind of 21st century independent woman who I’m sure believes that she would do a great job raising a kid by herself – she’s thick as thieves and wouldn’t have a problem providing for it.

    Back at her apartment we were making out in her living room when she whispering I was her “new boyfriend”. I replied “maybe in 6 months” which caused her to promptly stop kissing me and sitting up saying “what? why would you take 6 months to acknowledge a girlfriend? what are you really looking for?”. I was quite frank and told her something about love growing out of mutual respect and friendship, nothing that you decide upon on a first date. Her reply had something to do about “I’m just kidding with you baby” – but I felt there was more that.

    Thank you for reading. This is where I reach my point:

    Is it sometimes better to just let a hot girl go, as a preventive move – rather than think with your dick and fuck her? I’m not feeling too good about her, she’s not “casual” about us meeting at all, and it’s only been a 1st date. I’m cool about leaving her, maybe it’s just my paranoia that’s fucking with my mind?

    • She’s looking for a boyfriend/husband and NOT casual sex. Come on, she’s in her mid-thirties! She’s really late already and she has to get pregnant very soon – at this age she already risks Down’s syndrome and pregnancy complications!

      If you will just have sex with her and then leave her, she’ll feel even more desperate and sad. I can’t imagine being in her position. It’s really terrible. She should try to find an older man instead of losing her time with kids like you are. She’s a grown up woman, who wants to become a mum (it’s her last chance, almost), so I really don’t know why she behaves like she does.

      If you don’t want to marry her and have her babies, go away.

      The purpose of having sex is to make babies. It has always been.

        Put the alpha/beta polarity down for a sec and realize the world isn’t black and white. Everything else about last night would be labeled alpha in accordance to your worldview. Yes, we lost some momentum but got back on track and ended up having sex. That triggered my paranoia. I actually pulled out mid-sex, checking if the the rubber was “in place”.

        Out of personal experience, most FB relations (this might lead there) drop the rubber. It’s a balancing act, horniness and relying on her being a good girl and taking her pills vs. insisting on wearing a rubber at all times (a little psycho, nay?).

    That lady sounds like she wants something more than a fuck buddy.

    Like the one guy said, an alpha would just fuck her until he/she get tired of it, then move on.

    That is probably pretty good advice.

    A beta would do the right thing, but, that’s way they are betas. Women are merciless and amoral. Don’t feel bad. She might not even want any of the things her girlfriends have. She may just want to role play. Drama queen stuff.

    You sound young and inexperienced, so, she might be a great learning experience. Just don’t get her pregnant. If she winds up pregnant, paternity testing is mandatory. In some states in the USA you can renounce parental rights and responsibilities even if the bastard is yours, but only early on. The states don’t like to publicize that. Maybe before you have unprotected sex with her you should check with an experienced lawyer.

Sure, it might still be paranoia, but it was kind of awkward how she broached on about becoming a mom.

      • Let’s get back to the roots and core purpose of this blog: game.
        What women “say” is not congruent with what they “respond to.” Lymmel, indeed you sound young in your remarks. Pay attention to gold I’m about to bestow upon you:

        What you need to work on here is how to not take seriously the “content” of what the woman is saying but focus on the non-verbal communication (tonality,inflection of voice, body language) within the context of the situation. Don’t take “what” they say seriously, ever.

        For example in your situation where you were overcome by awkwardness (beta), the alpha response would be to embrace her words, mirror the tonality and roleplay the “hubby/wife” scenarnio whilst escalating heavy kino to seduction. Women love the hubby/wife roleplay, and roleplay in general. Again the “content” is only the vehicle for you to escalate further game to fuck close.

        Another example of this (not taking women’s content seriosuly) is during opening game. Example, you open a target at a public location, generate interest, attraction and go for # close. She responds, “I have a boyfriend,” your face cringes, you frown and apologize or show a sign of discontent (beta.) She may or may not have a bf, and if read right she could be very attracted to you, but nervous. Alpha response (without hesitation): brief smile, chuckle “you are so adorable…” move closer, grab one hand gently and other hand on outside shoulder “…what are we going to do with you? I got it! He can make us breakfast!” She laughs if done alpha, squeeze hand and brush shoulder down arm (anchor laughter with touch) start new thread…

        Lymmel, now go do work and fuck this chick. (And use a condom or pull out and cum in her mouth). Alpha.

I have been teaching her these violent arts religiously since she was teenager but it was an especially sweet thing today to watch her shoot the centers out of paper targets regardless of what death-dealing implement I gave her to deploy: Ruger 89DC, Sig Sauer, my beloved .45 Vaquero et al.
