Club game

As usual, what it took to bring me out of my Blog Hibernation was a simple question from a reader. Honestly, if you want to guarantee that I’ll write something in a week, no matter how busy I am, just email me with some woman-related quandary from your life. I’m like one of Pavlov’s dogs. […]

My thoughts on Simple Pickup, revisited

by GK on February 23, 2013 · 1 comment

Some readers have been suggesting I make a return visit to Simple Pickup, those rapscallions with the wacky Youtube videos and balls of steel. Being a man of the people, I had to comply. In a post I wrote over a year ago, I was impressed with the guys’ humor and ability to inspire, but […]

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 […]

My Thoughts on Simple Pickup

by GK on October 6, 2011 · 21 comments

I generally avoid pickup-artist-related content — it’s one of my favorite parts of being retired from regular coaching. But when Tre Tre sent me a Salon article about the Simple Pickup guys on YouTube, I felt compelled to investigate. I’ve watched all 19 videos on the Simple Pickup channel (I’m making this my excuse for why I’ve taken so […]

People have asked me whether I miss being an instructor ever since I did my last bootcamp in March. My answer has remained a steadfast no — I rather like having my weekends to myself. Plus, I’m still getting phone-coaching requests and I have this blog, so I’m not going totally cold turkey. But I can’t exactly pat myself […]

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, […]

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 […]

A man’s hookup guide for New Year’s

by GK on December 25, 2009 · 4 comments

Usually it’s other guys living vicariously through me, but for one night I’m counting on you bachelors.  In years past, I’ve relished being a single guy on New Year’s Eve. It’s a night when the tables are turned and single women become the aggressors. Not all, of course, but many of them. For some reason, they can’t stand the idea of not kissing a guy […]
