    Default Need help, coming across as too cocky

    Okay guys, Ive recently gotten profficient at picking up women but I started coming across as cocky. Girls have no problem talking to me but after too long they blow me off thinking im too full of myself. A month ago i never got this, girls would give me their number without question. How can i come across as a more humble guy without seeming beta.

    Keep in mind, I'm not sure what you are saying, but I would stay away from how much money you make, what kind of car you drive, what part of town you live in, etc.

    Also no one likes a know it all. Be Alpha by walking up to them and opening a set. Be Alpha by controlling the tone, by not giving in to a HB10 requests. Don't be Alpha by being a rude douche. And I am NOT saying you are one.

    The set should be fun, so be fun, if your making them laugh, your doing good. If they are laughing at YOU, your getting blown out. Make them want more. Don't neg too hard.

    Again, I don't know what you are saying or doing, but these are some suggestions.

    I hope it helps.

    It may sound really weird, but when my ego starts getting the best of me I read The Bible. I don't know which religion you identify with, but most other religious texts have similar values and beliefs so I assume they would have a similar effect.

    I don't want to start anything on this, just wanted to throw it out there. Figured you might be able to take something from it.

    Very unexpected and good insight Mr. OneThousand. The basics of cockiness is that fact that it actually makes you look beta to begin with. Even if you truly FEEL what you're saying, the way it will be PERCEIVED when you verbalize it will be that of beta. There is a nice little trick to help with the cockiness. Take compliments for instance. If a woman compliments you, your first reaction is "Yea I know." Try saying it like a woman would with.... "Really? You think so?" In turn you will actually get complimented tenfold which feels better than any cocky comment you say yourself.

    If it doesn't have to do with responding to a compliment then begin with the following, " I like to think that..." By adding this, shows a bit of humbleness to whatever you say next......... "I like to think that I have a big schlong." <------ See the difference?

    thx guys, i think i got too much success for a week and just became a negging mess. I do like the religous bit, its humbling thing to do.

    One last thing, I read a book by herbal. He claims that the right way to be cocky is to not only talk highly of yourself but others around you as well, making everyone in your eyes great. Like if you say "Im great, but its only because my mother raised me well." I started throwing those out there in an attempt to lighten my targets up a little.

    And what about david deangelos cocky funny, Its a classic technique what are the possible ways i could be farking it up.

    C/F works for the right people. Have you seen DeAngelo? Watched his personality? You can see why and how it works well for him, but it's definitely not for everybody. You gotta be pretty hard and near invincible. Have bullets bouncing off your chest. I've found that C/F works best when you have so much social proof you're pissing it out. Wygant talks about this a lot: become a regular at your favorite places. Get to know Point People. Have people talk for you so you don't even have to brag.

    Really great thread, thanks 0Rooster0 for bringing it up and everyone else who replied. I could've made a big mistake just now by being way too cocky to this really sweet girl, but your comments helped out and she actually invited me to another event with her and her friends that i met the other night ;]

    Haha Cody that is epic. I loled

    Might sound obvious but are you making sure you're smiling and/or laughing a bit when you make your comments? Also, perhaps your cocky/funny is a little one sided. Throw in some backwards compliments so she knows that you're just teasing/bantering with her instead of only making cocky remarks
