Ok, David Deangelo's ebook was one of the first products I tried and I have read all of his emails. My first attempt at breaking down my pitiful AFC behavior. I wanted to make it work but so far nothing but failure. I said some cocky/funny lines to women and they just give me a dirty or blank look and walk away. Some classic examples...
a) (a woman was having trouble finding money and looking frustrated/nervous) - "If you're pretending to be a big spender just to impress me it's not going to work"
b) or a woman bumps in to me. "Hey no groping, hands off the merchandise"
A few other examples, where it hasn't been working. I'm trying to pinpoint exactly why and here's what I have come up with.
Problem 1: I am just too clean cut and nice guy looking. Women just can't believe I'm being a little cocky. They look at me and think nice guy. They expect me to say something nice. There's no congruency.
Problem 2: I have a feeling women have heard most of those cocky/funny lines before, "buy me a drink and I'll dance with you" etc.
I decided to change my strategy. Cocky/Funny and negging have bombed miserably for me so far. My new approach will be to just be kind of "life of the party".
I have learned a few magic tricks. Nothing really super but some fun stuff. I usually stand across from my wingman and perform them, trying to keep the corner of my eye on any women that are taking notice. If I catch someone staring or laughing (i mix in some comedy to the magic, where applicable), then I approach that woman with a simple "Hi I just wanted to meet you" opener. No more cocky/funny lines. I they ask me where I learned magic I'd say "Hogwarts" or something like that. I then ask what would be their favorite super power as mentioned in "The Vibe". That's my favorite off beat question. Hopefully by now they are laughing and it's phone number time.
Maybe I should go back to c and F ?
