Why “Masculinity” Is Bullshit

Todd Inner Game, Life/Business/Health, Self-Help, Winner Game

Yes, you read that title right. Now I’m not saying there isn’t such a thing as masculinity, and I’m not saying that being polarizing and acting in “like a man” (whatever that means exactly) isn’t an effective strategy for attraction in many cases. In fact women are ON AVERAGE, attracted to traits that are more masculine. Muscular definition, facial and body hair, strong jaw lines etc… as well as risk-taking leadership-associated behaviors etc.. So as far as that goes, “masculinity” is great. However I have …

How to Not Lose at the Numbers Game

Todd Female Psychology, Inner Game, Outer Game

Ok, tell me if you’ve had this epiphany. The more girls you approach, the luckier you get. I.e. You just have to run through X number of girls before you find the one that likes you. The one you hook. The one you pull and well… get lucky with. Doesn’t matter how many rejections you get, as long as you get ONE to like you eventually, you win, right? If you believe that pickup is a numbers game, I’ve got news for you. You’re technically …

The “Shit Test” And Why It’s One Of The Most Important Pieces In Attraction

Todd Attraction, Conversation Skills, Female Psychology, Outer Game

Attractive girls get hit on A LOT. So much that they couldn’t possibly say yes to even a small fraction of guys who are throwing themselves at them. So they need a way to instantly tell if a guy is the real deal. Enter the shit test. By challenging a guy or putting him under pressure, girls can find out almost instantly who’s worth their time and who’s a pretender. Which actually brings up a good point… You should be HAPPY when she shit tests …

Does It Feel Empty? How To Find Meaning In Pickup And Beyond

Todd Life/Business/Health, Motivation, Self-Help, Winner Game

Let’s talk about something deep. Like “meaning of life” deep… and I’m actually not kidding. But I’m not talking about some woo-woo-fairy-crystals-save-the-whales bullshit… I’m talking about something more like what you see mentioned in this clip from the movie “Without Limits”: “If you can find meaning in running chances are you’ll find meaning in life.” See I’ve always hated nebulous self-help and I’ve always loved taking action and competing. More to the point, I’ve always found a lot of meaning in the things you learn, …

What it Means to Be Polarizing — LR From Online Game

Todd Attraction, Conversation Skills, Dates, Escalation, Female Psychology, Lay Report, Outer Game

Attractive girls get messaged by literally hundreds of guys every day. So if you want success online, you must stand out. You need to trigger an emotional response—ideally a good one, but any response is a good one. This brings me to a key concept: polarization. Polarize [poh-luh-rahyz] to divide into sharply opposing factions, political groups, etc. Being polarizing means doing or saying something people will either love or hate—with no middle ground. My online dating profiles are always polarizing, including phrases such as:   • Life is too short to dance with …

How would you like to know how to get your way in every interaction? Today I’m going to share one of the most powerful tools in my pickup arsenal, then I’m going to show you a video of me using it to get a girl to leave the club with me in less than ten minutes. The tool is called a “reframe” and it allows you to change the meaning of words and events in an interaction any time you want. As such, it basically …

Up The Ante: What Poker Teaches Us About Good Game

Todd Escalation, Friend Zone, Intent, Life/Business/Health, Motivation, Outer Game, Self-Help, Winner Game

In my life, I’ve learned a lot from games; specifically games that combine skill and chance. Three of my favorites are poker, Monopoly and, of course, pickup. Luck plays a big part in each of these endeavors, so at times your fate seems out of your hands. Drawing bad cards, landing on a hotel-covered Boardwalk, opening four straight girls who have fiancés…it can make you pull your hair out. True, there’s a lot we can’t control—in the short run. But don’t forget the long game. …

How To Use A Condom – The Lay Report That Nearly Wasn’t

I’d like to share an interesting lay report with you, including an advanced—but super subtle—way to a pull a girl. (Oh, and I thought you’d want to know that even experienced guys can screw up royally, too. More on that in a second.) I actually find most of my lay reports boring. They have a similar pattern: Meet girl, pull girl, have sex. Wash, rinse, repeat. (Yeah, I know, talk about your “first-world problems.”) For insights into getting predictably great results when you go for …

Field Report: Pulling A Rich Man’s Girl

Todd Attraction, Conversation Skills, Entitlement, Female Psychology

Here’s a quick field report that demonstrates two important pickup concepts. And who knows—it might even help you steal a cute girl from a millionaire one day. I was shooting pool at a bar in Thailand with my assistant, Kevin, when two cute girls walked in. “We got next,” one said as they sat down to order drinks. Kevin and I finished our game—and considered the best way to open. The girls didn’t seem to care much about pool. They were giggling, texting, and barely watching …

Exploring Excellence: The Filipino Billiards Factory

Todd Life/Business/Health, Motivation, Winner Game

Last week I took a four-day vacation, which is something I really haven’t done in years, but my vacation wasn’t what you typically think of as a vacation. I’m a huge fan of excellence in all forms, and I’m also a huge lover of the game of pool. So I took four days out of my Asia tour to seek out lessons from a top Filipino coach. It was difficult to find the place I was looking for, but my search eventually lead me to Star Billiards …
