    I hope that none of the feminist groups find this article. Your deli allusion would be sure to cause an outrage shitstorm.

    I'm a relationship expert—having one failed relationship—so I can assure everyone this article is inaccurate.

    Now that I'm done being silly— the first point wasn't a joke though :c — I can thank you for this different spin on the dating thing. All my opinions on approaching girls are so nebulous that I have no idea how to get 'em down on paper, but I am solidified in the confidence aspect.

    I am confident! ....aren't I?

    .....

    lol'ing and self pity aside, Confidence is one of the hardest parts in my opinion. That and fear of rejection, which most might say are one in the same.

    Also Wahay, 'sup with all the "guest" posting you've done as of late?

    As I used to tell my speech novices, fake confidence is the same as real confidence. Pretend to be confident, and everyone will think you totally are.

    +1 to confidence. Directly connected to that is looking them in the eye and smiling when you introduce yourself.

    Has anyone ever heard of this little trick called being yourself? It's like the ultimate cheat code.

    When I enter that cheat code I end up getting teleported to world -1, friend world.

    I disagree.

    Whenever I'm myself, I strike out. I think being yourself comes later, not when you're trying to get that first date.

    When I pretended to be a cocky, horny asshole who just wanted a hump-n-dump, well by gum, that's what I got. :rarr:

    There's a reason why there's an entire industry devoted to the art of the pickup. It's not because women are simple creatures, it's because they're the best psychological mindfuckers around. There are books, seminars, and websites devoted to disarming a woman's weapons. Read Roissy in DC for an example of how men game women.

    Well, if that is all your looking for, that is perfectly fine. It works on girls that are insecure in who they are and are looking for approval from a male partner,,, but..... Mature, grown adult women, honestly just want you to be honest, be yourself.

    Now, don't get me wrong, I don't dispute the importance of what poofie is saying here. Confidence in the sense that when you see someone you like, just walking up and saying so should not be that big of a deal. Hey, want to have a cup of coffee with me, hey want to get a burger, hey, I think you would look hot in a laser tag vest, all those apply. It does not mean it will land you a date, but what it does is improves your chances, you can't just stand on the sideline waiting for girls to jump on you, you have to man up, smile, and say, hey, I dig you, lets do something together. Its not nearly as big of a deal as people make it.
