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 […]

When a Woman’s Age Matters

by GK on August 29, 2011 · 1 comment

One of the many ways I’ve taught guys has involved age — factoring how old the guy is along with the age of women he’s trying to meet. Sometimes, it makes the difference between happy dating and tragic dating; sometimes, it doesn’t matter at all. I’ll do a little breakdown in this post, but I’ll say it […]

Cooking with GK: Fish en Papillote

by GK on August 1, 2011 · 4 comments

I’m putting on my manly apron one more time for you guys in the name of finding date-worthy dishes to cook. Today’s recipe calls for fish en papillote, which is a fancy (re: French) way of saying fish in parchment paper. This dish fulfills my date criteria in lots of ways: it’s tasty, it’s presentable, […]

I promised to occasionally sprinkle some sugar on my nutritious postings, and as I prepare to be the best man at my friend’s wedding this weekend, I thought I’d give you a former student’s encouraging story. I hope you’ll see that breakthroughs in dating don’t often come in an instant burst of glory. Sometimes it’s a modest flash of accomplishment in between struggles. Mike was in his […]

Podcast with Rob: Online-Dating Profiles

by GK on February 22, 2011

They say that in advertising, we are the product. At least that’s what Don Draper said in one episode. This is all the more true when it comes to writing an online-dating profile, when we must do what many of us despise: sell ourselves. I don’t think a man’s written profile is the most important […]

Settle down, class, because I’d like to introduce you to the new girl, and we’re going to try something different at Club GK.   Joining us today for an e-mail exchange is Tall Anna, aka Freebird No. 4 from a previous post. We had one date together, and I can’t promise I won’t hit on you again […]

In Memory of Dirk

by GK on January 19, 2011 · 9 comments

 This post won’t be as long as I originally expected. I’d rather avoid a lot of the “seize the day” cliches that come from an untimely death, and I’ll just stick to my personal thoughts about Dirk Manley. It is neither desirable nor intentional that I already had to give a eulogy to a departed friend […]
