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 […]

They say we hurt the ones we love most, but that might also go for striking fear into them. I’m talking fear of the Jason Vorhees variety. And I faced that fear last weekend in one of the world’s loveliest locations. One of my best friends, J-Raw, asked me earlier this year to be the best […]

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 […]

As part of Online Dating Month, I’m linking to a site I’ve studied since beginning my little Match.com experiment.

You can question how they compile their data, and my analytical friends have, but it’s a match made in heaven […]

It’s Mailbag Time, boys and girls! And this is my favorite kind of mail, because it asks a good question AND strokes my ego. It’s from a former SF student of mine: “Hey GK. I’m floored that it has been a year since you and I went out. I found it a fruitful experience which just keeps […]

GK on Vacation, and Self-Deprecation

by GK on November 26, 2010 · 2 comments

I am interrupting today’s turkey and pumpkin pie binge to make a temporary farewell entry. I’m two days from the vacation of a lifetime, as I’ll be spending 28 days visiting Australia, Singapore, Thailand and Hong Kong. The only reason I’m not excited about this is that I won’t be traveling with my laptop, which will […]
