I’m tagging in the great Rob Overman to close out 2010. For those of you who are returning to dating or have never really done it, he offers a structured plan on succeeding at it, and I think it should be required reading in schools all over America. Instead, you’ll just have to read it […]

I’m Back, and my 2011 Coaching Status

by GK on December 30, 2010

2010 marked the year I got away from social coaching, and I couldn’t get much farther away than the islands of Thailand. It wasn’t easy returning from my travels to Australia and Asia, but listening to the familiar cable car chimes outside my window has made me feel at home again. (There are too many highlights […]

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 […]

My Nerd Nite PUA presentation

by GK on November 19, 2010 · 5 comments

At long last, I’m posting the video from the Nerd Nite presentation on pickup artistry that I gave in September. A couple of things about it: It’s 50 minutes long, so if you want to skip ahead to my favorite parts, be sure to watch the role-play skit with Bart and the Q&A toward the end. And […]

Lately I’ve felt as if my waning days as a social coach are flashing before my eyes — one girl I’m dating turns out to be close friends with a guy I once coached, then I perform at a gong-show karaoke contest to find out one of the judges interviewed me for the Eye on the Bay TV piece this year (I […]

Look Out, Nerds: Here I Come

by GK on September 20, 2010 · 3 comments

I’m going to do something a little nerve-racking this Thursday night: give a speech to a mainstream San Francisco audience on the pickup community. Will I have tomatoes, or even worse, Mystery hats thrown at me? One thing I do know: it will be fun. My presentation will be for Nerd Nite, a monthly bar series put on by my buddy Bart […]

A Healthy Way to Face Failure

by GK on August 10, 2010 · 5 comments

This post was inspired by Rob “I’m About to Get Married” Overman, who suggested on the comments page of my post on Nice Guys that I should mention the Tripod of Stability. As far as I know, the term was coined by an entrepreneurship guru named Ramit Sethi, who wrote a best-selling book called “I Will Teach You to be […]

Now that I’ve felt the ghosts of kings and queens at Westminster Abbey, pondered life’s mysteries at Stonehenge and gazed down from the gorgeous cliffs of the Irish coast, I can get back to writing about what is truly meaningful: hot chicks and stuff. I want to address a topic that arose during my vacation, in the comments section of my previous post about […]
