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 […]

On teasing women

by GK on January 5, 2010

A recent student of mine wanted to understand “push-pull,” one of the tools in the Charisma Arts toolbox.  I’m a guy who likes simple language — witness how with the Big Four, I advise talking about yourself and telling her you like her instead of focusing on “I statements” and the “SOI.” And whether you call it push-pull, negging, […]

You can lead a woman to water …

by GK on December 16, 2009 · 1 comment

I’ve been reluctant to write about my personal experiences with women lately — a couple of them have been longer term (though not serious). But I can at least hold up a recent short-term wound I received from a girl as a teaching tool. She was tall, pretty and a hipster like me (though a hipster […]

The downside of rating women

by GK on November 27, 2009 · 7 comments

Before I step on my high horse — with its Gucci saddle — I’ll admit I’m a repeat offender on this one. I think it’s an innocent game much of the time: two guys see a gorgeous woman walk by, and as soon as their eyes return to their sockets, they feel a need to rate her […]

On being a man

by GK on November 13, 2009 · 6 comments

I was thinking of one of my favorite lines from one of my favorite movies, “The Godfather,” and how it relates to what I’m teaching. No, not the line about leaving the gun and taking the canoli, though this is sound advice in general. It’s early in the first “Godfather,” when the Don’s godson complains about a movie role he might not get […]

What is GK’s game like?

by GK on November 10, 2009

An e-mail I received from overseas during my recent hiatus reminded me of a post I’d been meaning to make — to explain my “game,” so to speak. It goes like this:  “I know you don’t use relating too much. but do you use the open-ended-question vacuum  reward ( relate )? I would be glad if you can say how […]

GK lives (plus a couple of reviews)

by GK on November 9, 2009 · 2 comments

Before I go on, I want to deny some rumors that have surfaced during my long blogging drought: I was not kidnapped by aliens, brainwashed by a cult that worships Transformers or laying in a chocolate-induced coma. I’ve simply been busy with some things. But last week I finally finished my screenplay (the first draft, […]

Cooking with GK: dijon lamb chops

by GK on September 29, 2009 · 2 comments

It’s been too long since I posted a date-approved recipe, so here you go. And I maintain my promise of making a video for one of these, but it’s just quicker to post it this way. When it’s done right, I’ll take lamb over beef almost any day. I love its tenderness and aroma, and […]
