Flirting

A large portion of this blog is devoted to helping guys put their best foot forward socially so that women like them. We shouldn’t pretend to be above wanting to be liked. And as I discussed in my Jay Cutler post a while back, few of us can go through life without being liked at all. […]

I’ve talked before about the benefits of making friends with women rather than just pursuing them, and I was reminded of it last night with some helpful feminine insight. I was sucking down Malbec with Tre Tre and his female friend from out of town — she’s a lovely, outgoing woman with plenty of dating experience.  The topic that arose was whether […]

I wanted to make sure I got Rob Overman’s thoughts on the pie chart of attraction I posted a day earlier, and the following is his cogent analysis. He offers a twist on my take, but the gist is the same: “I’ve been thinking about this all day because it’s an interesting question. At one point […]

The Pie Chart of Attraction

by GK on May 3, 2011 · 5 comments

The one scenario in my social-coaching days that seemed to vex my students the most, and even some female friends I’ve had, is this: what to say when they’re first meeting an attractive member of the opposite sex. Our vexing makes perfect sense — no one wants to be a blubbering mess, vomiting like Stan from “South Park” every time he saw […]

As I mentioned in my last post, I do wish I’d gotten around to coaching women on flirting. But it’s nice to know that a girl I met a few nights ago didn’t need the help. Perhaps this story will give you an example of what I’d teach a woman: how to clear the path and make […]

Is pickup dead? Never!

by GK on April 1, 2010 · 2 comments

With the relative Armageddon surrounding Charisma Arts, I’ve noticed some people declaring this whole “pickup” thing dead. I’ve been doing some musing on the topic. Guys just aren’t going to pay $1,500 or more to learn how to meet girls in this economy, they say, and the whole culture of peacocking clothes, “alpha” body posture and opening lines is […]

It’s a special week here at Club GK. I’m making my TV debut Wednesday, when I’m scheduled to appear on a local CBS show called “Eye on the Bay” during an episode about dating. For you Bay Area folks, you can catch it at 7 p.m. For the rest of you, it’ll appear on the show’s […]

A new social sport: The Gregathlon

by GK on February 9, 2010 · 1 comment

Those of you who know me probably know that I’ve devoted much of my life to sports. And now that I’ve been teaching this dating stuff for a couple of years, I think it’s high time I joined the two.  I’ve been working on this in my laboratory recently, and with the Winter Olympics just a few days away, I’m unveiling […]
