My Nerd Nite PUA presentation

by GK on November 19, 2010 · 5 comments

At long last, I’m posting the video from the Nerd Nite presentation on pickup artistry that I gave in September. A couple of things about it: It’s 50 minutes long, so if you want to skip ahead to my favorite parts, be sure to watch the role-play skit with Bart and the Q&A toward the end. And […]

Thank You, Nerds

by GK on September 29, 2010 · 2 comments

Lately I’ve felt as if my waning days as a social coach are flashing before my eyes — one girl I’m dating turns out to be close friends with a guy I once coached, then I perform at a gong-show karaoke contest to find out one of the judges interviewed me for the Eye on the Bay TV piece this year (I […]

Look Out, Nerds: Here I Come

by GK on September 20, 2010 · 3 comments

I’m going to do something a little nerve-racking this Thursday night: give a speech to a mainstream San Francisco audience on the pickup community. Will I have tomatoes, or even worse, Mystery hats thrown at me? One thing I do know: it will be fun. My presentation will be for Nerd Nite, a monthly bar series put on by my buddy Bart […]

Around the same time I read about the whiny San Francisco women represented in that SF Weekly article (and the whiny SF men and women on its comments page), I found a corresponding blog that’s gained some local popularity. The name says it all: Why There Are No Girls in San Francisco.  Whoever this Samuel Snodgrass is, […]

This is a topic I’ve been wanting to cover for months. For all of San Francisco’s sophistication — its cuisine, wine and culture — we seem to be resorting to some childish temper tantrums when it comes to one thing: hooking up. Or, rather, not hooking up. Both sexes are guilty of this, and I’ll […]

Getting your mack on at the museum

by GK on January 12, 2010 · 1 comment

The more I look at venues for socializing and dating in San Francisco, the more I’m seeing that museums have become the new bars. That suits a nerd like me just fine, and it might suit you. I’m a strong advocate of dance clubs, at least if there’s 80s music involved. But if the bar or club scene is […]

Cougar party!

by GK on August 13, 2009

For my Bay Area readers, I had to pass this one along. One of my main wingmen notified me of the National Single Cougars Convention, billed as America’s “first-ever” (!) convention of older single women and younger prey, I mean, men. It’s happening Aug. 28 in Palo Alto. Cougars aren’t my thing — I’ve never been with a […]

I’m just putting this out there, because I don’t know how long it will last: If you’re single and live in the Bay Area and you haven’t been to the California Academy of Sciences on Thursday nights, I highly recommend you do so. San Francisco plays host to some other decent museum nights — I’ve had fun […]
