Re: hot best friend, how to still get girls
Tough one, I've had this before and it sucks.
My advice would try to catch up with him, and improve enough that they pick you over him. Remember that girls are more attracted to confidence than good looks. Your friend might be confident and good looking though, which sucks, but you can still improve your confidence and game as much as possible to compete with him. Even if you don't actually succeed, you will still have improved a lot. Think about it like going to a fight with Bruce Lee: he will probably get most of the job done by himself, but you will probably learn a couple of things too.
Other than that, you can work on your relationship with him. Two options:
- You AMOG him. Bit of a bitch move, but if you're not close enough from him, it might be necessary. There are subtle ways to have a guy down, imply that he respects you and "works" for you, and all that, basically that you are his alpha and he's your beta. Again, kind of douchy but sometimes necessary.
- You ally with him. Recommended, but requires good relationship. Talk about it with him! Tell him "dude, you don't realize it, but you rock with girls, that's great. I don't do bad either, so let's make a deal, let's work together. You show me the girls you like, I help as much as I can, and I don't try to get them. I show you the girls I like, you help and you don't steal, same deal." It works even better if you have different tastes. And you might find that he's not that confident, or that he actually has a lot of great insight and tips.
Seduction is a martial art. Reading books and talking to experts is important, and helpful. But you won't progress unless you go out there and fight.
