When approaching a group of beautiful women it is a good idea to ask each one of them to pull your finger. When each woman has had her turn then simply let one rip. This will convey to them that you are very high value and not intimidated by their beauty.
ASSMAN (11 days ago)
When you first meet a woman it is good to say things like, 'I wear sneakers in the pool." This conveys to her right away that you are a high value man (you know how to swim) and are to be respected and admired.

SoulScr3am (2 months ago)
Yeah, so tell me, why do you think i come from a big family? And when you say things like ''oh i have always thought rock climbing is interesting, why do you like it so much?'' or ''oh, ive always wanted to be a school teacher'' You will immidiately appear like a liar, and you kinda are. Yeah a useful tip is to try and keep the conversation going by not asking too many questions and just talk about the subject, but it has to come from a place of honesty or people will see right through it. When people say to me stuff like ''oh that is interesting'' i always press them on why they think it is interesting and they need to back it up. If people aren't honest in the start of their conversation, they won't be honest in the middle of it. Another example of ''oh, i always wanted to be a teacher'' i would rather say ''oh cool, i'm not in to teaching, i think of it as pretty hard because of the fact that kids are difficult to deal with, but i have huge respect for people that have the nerve to be up there and teach'' something like that feels much more honest to the listener. But if you always wanted to teach, fine, but ALWAYS come from a place of HONESTY and don't try to win ''i have the same interests as you'' points.

Quick summary for myself Family -> dangerous but gets you closer Occupation -> basic for smalltalk Recreation -> basic, ez bridge to dream Dream -> deep convo, and imaginary. Good to flirt. Rule 1: always agree and be understanding 2: if you dont agree, add your oppinion to your agreement in a “but” type of way.. “yes i like this and that, but i also think that this should be...” 3: ask the person what they think of your vision “dont you think this and this aswell?” Wanna flirt? Open with family, then dont let the daddy issues come up and switch to recreation. From recreation, ask *their* passion, try to do the “yes, but ...”-thing and after *their* favorete recreational things to do run out, bridge to dream “wow but since you like dancing, have you never thought of becomming a dancer, bc i think about becomming an artist since thats my passion. Dont *you* dream of becomming a dancer?” “I do fully understand why you hate his guts, since he ate all the rice. Especially if you’d been waiting on it for 1 hour. Such an asshole, I’d totally would hate someone for eating my pudding, because rice is easely made. Dont you think so? (This is the yes, but ... technique)

If this is about dating. Stop asking others what their dreams are, and accomplish your own dreams, there’s a saying in my occupation (session musician) and it applies throughout life really, how many guitarists does it take to fit a light bulb ? A = 100 1 to do it, 99 to watch and criticise. If you’re within the 99, you’re the norm (which is boring), if you’re the 1, not only did you actually do it but also different from the norm (more exciting, at least in most ways).

In other words: How to be babbling about everything and making your company less bearable. Look, if you actually want to have a conversation with someone, ask about something of their interest and then proceed to say the closest thing you know about that subject and there you go, that person will open up and talk about them and then you can branch out many different subjects from that one specific subject. That’s what works for me
