    There is such a thing as TOO much cocky/funny. Maybe that's what you did. It takes practice. If you provide some detail maybe we can help you recover.

    Just like BatMan said...

    It's SOOOO easy to accidentally go overboard with the cocky stuff, and not even realize it.

    It just takes practice & experience to find the right balance between cocky & cute. (I learned that the hard way!! ) LOL!

    Just to follow up behind tmalonetn...it is VERY easy to overdo it. It comes across as that you are trying TOO hard to look confident......which is still try hard and that can make you look insecure. So basically it's called cocky/FUNNY. Without the funny it's just plane cocky

    Im not a super pua yet or anything but i had a theory about c and f and work.

    I believe when u try it at work, you are dealing with women who have known u for so long that c&f fries their brain. They already have u set up as a friend ( u said they used to hang out). Now they see a new side of u... an attractive side. Its hard to reconcile those two things. So they kinda back off. B4 they were comfortable with u because u were in LJBF zone (unless u have more info to contrary). So it was easy for them to approach u and ask to hang out. However, when u show the alpha qualities, they now want u to lead. They are attracted so they go into ' i dont want to give off obvious signs that i like him' mode.

    But trust me its there. U just have to lead now. Take the rains and run with it. Im sure they are at least curious about why/how u had this personality change.

    Not sure if i got the idea across but id love any opinions. (Sorry for grammar. Sent from my phone)

    I find cocky funny easy to pull off because it comes naturally to me. Basically I just make one or two comments in a conversation when the time is right (light hearted, jokingly conversation), and do so with a big smile on my face so people know I'm joking.

    I feel like many people over do cocky funny just by being too cocky and not enough funny. Making fun of girls if they don't laugh or other people don't laugh is just cocky and mean. Remember it's called cocky and funny. If you do it right, it can do wonders.

    Forget them and carry on. Show them that you are still happy and you don't need their approval. When they see how much people love you elsewhere they will be begging to have you back. It worked for me at my workplace with the amount of rapport I have gained (I did something wrong and I showed the balls to own up and people gave me a lot of respect for it). This is so much so to the point that people normally take my side when someone has a problem with me.

    This girl at work still dislikes me for my switch to cocky-funny especially when I had a drunk night and messed up my game with her and she thought I was a jerk especially when I tease her but people are normally laughing at the stuff I say and now she's becoming warmer towards me gradually. Use a lot of Push-Pull, portray your alpha qualities and don't give a crap about anything and you will in the long term gain a lot of respect.

    No one else really likes me either, there are 2 other older dudes in my department but they are total assholes, to give u an example one of them started accusing me lying about uploading a file in front of everyone, so I had to open up my screen and show him the file was uploaded to prove I wasnt lieng. HR lady hates me too, always ignores me never says hi and one time I tried contributing to a convo she was having and she just had this blank stare and paused for 5 seconds then ignored what I said and carried on her convo.
