Hey so first I want to mention I've always focused on inner game with the exception being body language. I'm also a pretty tall and good looking guy and am very focused on style, so it helps.
I used to always be kind and sweet, used kino, and would just ask girls about themselves - what I read not to do - but for some reason a lot of girls would still sleep with me. I'm thinking it may be because I'm naturally sarcastic so I do make some jokes about what girls talk about but I never went full into 'negging' territory. I always just tried to be a good conversationalist.
Recently I tried negging a little bit when out, making some jokes I remembered specifically from some lines I read back in the day, and I got some seriously negative responses. I was playing very lightly and their body language would turn very negative, then I suddenly feel like I HAVE to give a pull back in or they'll leave (that's been the experience thus far).
How do you do the neg and push/pull without getting such a visceral negative response? Do you neg with your body language as well, or is it something where you neg/push with verbals but pull with nonverbals?
