Sample text

To Kiss And Tell... Stop telling other people about your experiences with women, at least for a while. Why? Because it reinforces the idea that you're getting 'results' from women. And by sharing it with somebody else, you're looking for approval from that person that you 'did good', that you're a 'player', etc. In essence, you are taking an intimate experience you shared with a woman and using it to inflate your ego. It's an insult to your dignity as a man and it is spitting on the woman who was kind and daring enough to share herself with you.

Just standing around looking GQ will get you NOWHERE. Women engage men rarely and it's on you as a man, if you see someone you like, to make a play for her. Taken literally, non-pursuing can be misconstrued to mean "never communicating interest". But that's fake and inauthentic AND most of all, ineffective. " Hot girls are so used to guys putting on their cool mask around them. Ask any attractive woman and she'll tell you how weary she is of the act. But 'pursuing' can be construed as being overbearing, insensitive and poorly calibrated.

In today's world, women can and do take care of themselves extremely well, often better than men, and they don't need anybody else to bring home the bacon for them. But what they DO need is a man - a real man - who makes them feel feminine and beautiful and smart and sexy, in a way that their careers, no matter how satisfying, can never do. But as they polarity between men and women fizzles out, men are becoming more effeminate and women more masculine. So, women are in desperate need of real men who stand on principle, communicate honestly, directly and authentically, who live with courage and boldness and who don't apologize for their desires.
