    Default My best mate is an AMOG..subtle help needed.

    Hi dudes,

    I usually go out of a night with my best mate who is a natural AMOG and doesn't realise it. Whenever we're out and I start talking to a woman he starts trying to put me down....it's banter, not malicious...and when I'm not around female company, I shoot the sh1t right back to him. He's a decent mate, but he is ruining my chances.

    He's pretty insecure himself and his AMOGing is to make up for it. Is there any way I can deflect his sh1t infront of women without me seeming like a total tool, trying too hard to validate myself or hurting his feelings by making him look bad.

    Talking to him is an option, but I feel that he'll take it personally if I tell him to quit it. Toughie right?

    Any thoughts

    Thespian

    I'm no expert but here's my thoughts:
    You want the easy Beta route? Flattery. Ask him to be your wingman & tell him how his insults make you feel.

    What would an Alpha male do? Confront him. Realize it IS personal. He's being a jerk. Respond confidently & cocky in front of others. Give him a piece of your mind alone...really. Be passionate.

    You could also read up on AMOGing & blow him out of sets. Every guy has a weakness, even your friend. But this is a dangerous game because the insults will hit much closer to home with intimate friends.

    Good luck

    If he takes it bad then he's not a good friend bro, u should be able to talk about stuff like that with u're friends without them getting offended and vice-versa.

    Default Re: My best mate is an AMOG..subtle help needed.

    I used to do a bit of acting in local plays and stuff and am looking at getting back into it when I start University...hell I love the attention and also being in an environment where everyone loves to play.

    A leader of men...ha! not really an aspiration of mine dude. I don't want followers, or require validation... just looking for a good time. But I also don't want to shoot down a bro who has been there for me when times have been awful...I think he's so deeply insecure he might take it to heart...was just looking to avoid that. Anyone else I wouldn't give a damn.

    Thanks all the same rs5096

    Respect

    Hey Thespian,

    I'm with Xavier here. Of course use some common sense when telling him not to blow you out the water. I really can't believe a mate would take offense to that.

    Don't let it control the frame your in. What Amogging is a is a way that test how socially adept you are, a sh** test women normally do but by a male. Being its your friend, I'd probably just ignore it in set or laugh it off and continue talking to the girl. Or interrupt him and tell both him and her to follow you to introduce them to a new friend or somebody that's cool.
