Ah PD, that is where you erred. You just "Be yourself" and not the "best of yourself." The details of the steps can't be covered in post because there is a lot (Attraction - High Value Talk - Escalation). If you are here on a PUA forum (and not on some ordinary dating forum), then hopefully you are serious about getting good at the art of seduction, you need to start researching a bit and invest in your self development.i dunno i don't really think about it like that, what are the steps? basically i just be myself and then take the conversation in a more physical direction and be more touchy etc and then when i wanna makeout with the girl i just go for it, only difference is i didn't take it further because i couldn't have a late night
When I was AFC, I pretty much went through what you did. Now it is light and day for me. You were fortunate that the girl actually told you straight up "She wasn't interested." It's better than a girl, who doesn't let you know, and you waste your time texting her only for her to not respond hoping you catch the hint.
But basically seduction starts at "hello" and speaking to her in a way that will appeal to her emotions to generate attraction. And I don't mean small talk and going into interview asking her questions. That crap is boring. A lot of guys are too logical. The guys who get women know how to hit their emotional core and bring her back to the playground. Teasing/being playful/high value talk are the fundamentals.
Yes, there are things like kino too. You want to get her use to touching you and it is also used as a compliance test on the escalation ladder.
It's a craft that also involves self-development. Once you cover your bases, you will see a significant improvement on your success with women.
