A friend and I have been out sarging a few times, and his number one critique for me is that I sound too professional when I speak to women. I've been in marketing for years, and speaking to clients is one of my fortes, so this makes sense. But when it comes to women, they're always very friendly with me and our conversations work well, but the tone I use and my vocabulary end up coming off too "educated" than conversational.
Incidentally, since I started working on my PUA skills, my speaking/sales skills have increased tremendously. I'm actually thinking this is hurting me in the field.
Does anyone have advice or has had this problem in the past? The majority of the advice I've received has been generally "dumb down your speaking," but that feels counterproductive and I really don't want to lose my own personal/professional communication skills.
