When to Approach a Large Group

by GK on July 4, 2011 · 2 comments

We’ve often heard about the “three-second rule” when it comes to approaching people at a bar or party, but I was reminded of one scenario where waiting a little longer can pay off. I was with a student at a bar in the Mission recently, and over our shoulders stood a party of perhaps eight people — guys […]

Does game really matter? I’ve seen it debated, most recently in the comments section of my post on looking for women’s interest. Heck, even I’ve contradicted myself — on one hand I talk about how technique is overrated and often irrelevant, and yet, um, have you noticed the name of this blog? My buddy Tre Tre represented […]

One guy’s memorable bus ride

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 […]

As I return from New York and Miami, and figuratively from Mexico, I feel a bit like Jimmy Chitwood in “Hoosiers.” It’s time for me to start blogging again.  I’ll have more to say in the days ahead, but I wanted to get one thought off my chest. This regards meeting women during the day, or […]

I’m old enough to remember a time when online dating was this new, semi-taboo novelty. It was seen as a bastion for awkward singles who couldn’t find a date in person. Which, coincidentally, is when I first tried it back in the late 90s/early 00s. Now, in tech-crazy San Francisco, I’ve been considered weird for not dating online, and […]

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 […]

Thank You, Nerds

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 […]
