Field report: the Grouper date

by GK on April 15, 2013 · 13 comments

Comfort is a two-faced bitch. It lures us away from the jagged rocks of pain to the soft shores of protection. It is a great time-saver and facilitator; it might even be fun for a while. Comfort is also our undoing, robbing us of our potential. It’s the difference between Bilbo Baggins staying in the […]

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 […]

You wanted him, you’ve got him. My good friend Tre Tre shared his considerable knowledge a year ago in Part I about why pickup techniques are overrated. Like any good sequel, Part II took some time, and unlike “Matrix Reloaded,” this one delivers the goods. I’ve coached students often about the importance of detaching themselves […]

I never get tired of hearing success stories, and I’ve got another one for you. This one comes from a special event: my last bootcamp with Charisma Arts almost two years ago.

It’s a big time saver when you guys feed me […]

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.

I’ve watched all 19 videos on the Simple Pickup channel (I’m making this my excuse for why I’ve taken so […]

A large portion of this blog is devoted to helping guys put their best foot forward socially so that women like them. We shouldn’t pretend to be above wanting to be liked. And as I discussed in my Jay Cutler post a while back, few of us can go through life without being liked at all. […]

Today’s question comes from Barry O’Herlihy: Ok so, recently I was going through Dirk’s blog and came across his “stop blaming others” post. However, it’s not the post I wanted to email you about, but rather, a line from it where he talks about refraining from using cockblocks as an excuse why she didn’t like you. So […]
