The Shut Up Challenge

In my last post, I talked about the “Silence Exercise”… a game I play where I try and be as silent as possible in set. This is actually a really useful exercise for improving your bodylanguage, confidence and conversational skills. Anyway, I thought that I would start a little challenge to the guys on the The Attraction Forums and this …

Running out of things to say? Shut up!

Ever run out of things to say when you’re talking to a woman? Let me guess, it happens all the time. From my experience as someone who’s been teaching pickup bootcamps for a long time, this is one of the most common problems that guys have.

More on Negging

The New York Times has an article this week that talks about the sociological and biological background of teasing and negging, which I think is really insightful. The author, a professor of Psychology at Berckley, argues that teasing is a natural human behavior, and that, done properly, it helps to build strong social connections between people. But negging gets a …

Is Rational Intelligence a Spandrel? (Warning, Long)

You’re probably thinking to yourself, “What the hell is a spandrel?”, and “what the heck does this have to do with picking up women?”. And the answers are “a concept in evolutionary biology which is inspired by architecture” and “not too much”.

How to piss off a Bartender in Dublin

As a Canadian, one of my favorite things to do when I’m traveling is to act like a complete jerk, and then tell people that I’m American. I know it’s a pretty terrible thing to do, but I’m a bit of a nihilist, and kind of like contributing to Anti-American sentiments worldwide – if only just to stir the pot …
