Remembering Dirk, One Year Later

by GK on January 12, 2012 · 5 comments

It occurred to me lately that I should add to my blogroll. I only have one site listed, and even though I prefer to avoid the seduction-community scene because of all its sleaze, I know I can find like-minded bloggers to add here. That’s part of why I got on Twitter recently. But they would […]

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 […]

Birth of a Player

Here’s some more sugar for me to toss your way. I recently got an e-mail from Gavin, the Canadian guy I coached in San Francisco earlier this year. His love life was already doing better when he wrote me in this post, but now he tells me he’s reaching new heights. It pretty much made my […]

The Best Technique of all

by GK on May 14, 2011 · 10 comments

I’ve been thinking lately about two legendary coaches from different worlds, and how their success owes not to teaching technique or strategy, but to understanding the person within. I just watched “The King’s Speech” for the first time. It’s warm and mushy the way an Oscar-winning film is supposed to be, and I can tolerate that. But as you might expect, […]

One guy’s memorable bus ride

by GK on May 11, 2011 · 1 comment

In keeping with my promise to add some tips and stories of fun and success, I offer the aftermath of a private instruction I gave in San Francisco earlier this year. His name is Gavin, he’s in his early 20s and he lives in Western Canada. Gavin made me the first stop of a North American bus […]

A promise to add sugar

by GK on May 11, 2011 · 6 comments

I was talking to Rob about the blog yesterday, and it occurred to me that I may be bumming some people out. Since my hiatus I’ve lamented the shutdown of bookstores, declared that the girl you met in such a bookstore may not be as high quality as she seems, and then I burst some bubbles by posting […]

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 […]

GK’s Book Pick: Seduce with Style

by GK on January 13, 2011 · 1 comment

I was vacationing with Oprah in Australia last month. Well, not really, but we were both in the same beach town at the same time, and her helicopter flew above me while I was snorkling in the Great Barrier Reef.  So it’s only fitting that I play Oprah and make a little book recommendation for […]
