Knowing yourself

I’m fortunate to have had good friends who really understand seduction. They save me time with posts like this. If you haven’t read the second part of Tre Tre’s piece on why pickup techniques are bullshit, read it now. It’s really damned good. There were some valid counterarguments in the comments section, and Tre responds […]

You wanted him, you’ve got him. My good friend Tre Tre shared his considerable knowledge a year ago in Part I about why pickup techniques are overrated. Like any good sequel, Part II took some time, and unlike “Matrix Reloaded,” this one delivers the goods. I’ve coached students often about the importance of detaching themselves […]

I’ve been busy wearing out my voice during the Giants’ World Series run (woo hoo!), but I’m going to interrupt that for a minute to share a video relating to body language that both educates and inspires. My friend sent me a recent TED talk featuring social psychologist Amy Cuddy. A quick synopsis is that […]

I’ve watched “Swingers” countless times since I first saw it in 2000, back when I had a lot in common with Mikey — clueless with women, in a new city and yet to overcome a breakup that I initiated. Not until recently, though, did I hear the guy behind the guy talk about what exactly […]

I’ve said it, and so have so many others in the advice-giving game: Be Yourself. It’s so vague yet so right at the same time, and the gap we must bridge to explain it can seem wider than the Grand Canyon. What if we don’t know ourselves yet? What if yourself changes a little bit from day to day? […]

Now that I’ve felt the ghosts of kings and queens at Westminster Abbey, pondered life’s mysteries at Stonehenge and gazed down from the gorgeous cliffs of the Irish coast, I can get back to writing about what is truly meaningful: hot chicks and stuff. I want to address a topic that arose during my vacation, in the comments section of my previous post about […]

I’m packing for more adventure — I’ll be visiting London and Dublin this week and next — and in my rush I wanted to give you something to chew on while I’m gone. My timeliness in mentioning this woman’s blog post/rant/edict is about as good as BP’s timeliness in capping the oil spill, but better late than never. I ran across this […]
