And when it comes down to it, it's not about WHAT you say, it's HOW you say it.

Hopefully some will realize that one day.

Who's arguing? I'm just trying to encourage any guys who might be reading this, to NOT try this. It's bad.


Either grow some cajones and try it out, for yourself,


Men with "cajones" don't need to go around resorting to all these "disqualifiers" and "negs" and "gay guys hit on me" tactics. Tactics which are all designed to mask the fact that you're approaching the girl, or girls, because you like how they look.

Men with "cajones" just do bold, direct things and don't bother playing all these games.

Alright fine, if you really have a great success rate with that good for you.

However, Don't hate the player, hate the game. This has changed my life as well as the life of many other guys, including some of my friends who I have helped out.

Hopefully you can see the big picture and realize all this is about self improvement.

Who was hating? I wasn't hating on you, players, or "the game". Just this one specific god-awful opening tactic.

This ONE opener, this "gay guys hit on me" opener, changed your entire life, and the lives of your friends?

Somehow I find that hard to believe!

Yes yes, but look, has it occured to you that maybe it's simply your GUTS and COURAGE in approaching and opening them that these girls are responding to, and not the bit about flirting with gay guys?

Maybe there are lots, and lots, and lots, of other ways to approach girls that don't involve joking about being gay?

Sheesh....

There you go with you arrogance again. You haven't even tried it, this is ridiculous. This is why people never learn.

Like I said, simply walking up to a woman and saying "Hi" or "you're pretty" will rarely work in creating attraction with her, unless you have a bank account like Bill Gates or look like Brad Pitt.

Good luck to you if you have neither of those.

I create attraction all the time, from a distance, without even saying a word.

In fact, I won't even approach a girl until I'm 99.99% sure that she's attracted.

You can do amazing, amazing things with simple body language and posturing that make a lot of this stuff you read on pickup and seduction sites totally unnecessary.

And no, I'm not model good-looking like Brad Pitt - FAR from it!

Why don't I believe you? Why don't you capitalize on this if it's that good?

I don't like that cause it's limiting. We men are the ones who court, not the women.



Now can we please get on to the thread. Let's talk about things that have actually been proven to work by thousands of men, myself included.

Honestly? Because my heart's not really in it these days.

I have capitalized before, and will again when I'm in the mood to; but these days I am missing some people that I love very much and I'm not all that enthusiastic about the whole pickup game.

Now go ahead, tell me I've got "oneitis" (or two-itis.... or three-itis.... or five-itis.... hehehe). I don't care.

If you're trying to "court" a girl that's not naturally attracted to you, you actually have less power and you're in the weaker position.

I don't like being in the weaker position, humbleone


NATURAL attraction, all the way!!

You mean THOUSANDS of guys are out there joking about being gay??

Oh my GOD

By capitalize I mean, selling it to other men, proving it works. Not just to yourself, which can't be proven to anyone, but whatever.

Fellow readers out there, don't take my advice about this stuff and certainly don't take his. If you really want to, you can prove it to yourself. Don't just hypothesize like a lot of lazy people are naturally prone to do.

Now let us move on to more important matters.

By the way people, I didn't create this thread to argue about whether or not this stuff works. I KNOW from my own experience that it does work. I'm having more fun right now than I could've ever imagined.

I don't really care if anyone else believes it or not. I'm just merely throwing this thread out there to stir curiosity and perhaps help guys who have real social and romantic issues with women.

With that in mind, please try not to derail the thread.

Ugh! I have ZERO interest in becoming the next "pickup guru". (And besides, in my case it would be more like the "Heartbreak Kid guru"
)

But look, there are surface things, like "lines" and "openers" and whatnot, and then there are the deep.

Who you are as a person. How you feel about yourself. How you feel about women and sex. How you look at women and make eye contact. How you gesture and signal to the people around you. How you move and posture and maneuver yourself when you're around different groups of people. Etc etc etc.

Mastery of these deeper things make much more of a difference than which "line" or "opener" or "pickup script" you use.

I'm sure they talk about all this on all your pickup sites too, humbleone; so I'm surprised you're making such a big fuss over one opener!

yeah they do. I'm not making a fuss over the opener per se, I'm making a fuss over the fact that people criticize things without trying it first.

I thought that this was where the BTS singles would meet and flirt... Perhaps its time to start an BTS singles thread, or is there already one? I am not looking, but would love to find some members to flirt with , make that over 21 years of age... Or 340 in my case.
