Knowing yourself

I’m fortunate to have had good friends who really understand seduction. They save me time with posts like this. If you haven’t read the second part of Tre Tre’s piece on why pickup techniques are bullshit, read it now. It’s really damned good. There were some valid counterarguments in the comments section, and Tre responds […]

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’ve been busy wearing out my voice during the Giants’ World Series run (woo hoo!), but I’m going to interrupt that for a minute to share a video relating to body language that both educates and inspires.

I’ve watched “Swingers” countless times since I first saw it in 2000, back when I had a lot in common with Mikey — clueless with women, in a new city and yet to overcome a breakup that I initiated. Not until recently, though, did I hear the guy behind the guy talk about what exactly […]

I would have written my own post this week, but I’m on “Mad Men” lockdown for Sunday’s two-hour premiere. My glass of water looks like an Old Fashioned, my office co-workers suddenly resemble Joan and Roger, and I’m introducing myself as “Don” without even realizing it. This is what waiting two years between episodes does […]

Of Peter Pan and Marriage

So, remember when I said in my last post that I’m often inspired to kick sand at academics in matters of sex and relationships? Yeah, that’s what I’m about to do. A few days ago I came across a Wall Street Journal article called, “Where Have The Good Men Gone?” I thought the author, Kay […]

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 […]
