Building a Better Bloke

Can you learn how to talk to women?

Posted in Confidence, Female friends, Gender, Life skills, Relationships, Self esteem, Women by Sam de Brito on February 23, 2010

The short answer to that question is “yes”. The long answer is “are you ready?”

That’s all it really comes down: whether you’re prepared to put aside your excuses and get down to the business of building a persona and life that is attractive to the opposite sex.

The first Building a Better Bloke seminar of the year will be held Sunday, March 7, 2010 and places are filling fast. More than 120 guys have attended the seminar now and the feedback has been incredibly positive: take a look here, if you’d like to read some recent comments about what goes down on the day …

The Building a Better Bloke seminar is not purely about how to improve your love life. A big part of what we discuss is how any man can improve his self-esteem, his health and his general attitude to life. However, by doing this what you find is that also become far more attractive to the opposite sex.

As I’ve said previously, I spent the first thirty years of my life clueless as to what I was doing wrong (and right) with women. About ten years ago, however, I came across a couple of websites and realised there was a massive amount of literature out there that could help guys like me.

Since then, I’ve either read, listened, watched, researched, tried or written about most of the dating material out there – certainly more than any other Australian writer has in the public space. I reckon I can now spend five minutes with the average guy and see what he’s doing wrong when he talks to girls. It jumps out at you and it usually comes down to some very simple things – like how the guy walks and stands and the way he projects his voice.

Most of all, it’s usually the fact a man is obsessing about what the woman thinks of him, rather than just having a good time.

It’s a very simple yet profound shift to stop obsessing and start having fun, but I’ve seen enough guys make it, that I know it’s there for every bloke to do, if he wants to step into it.

The Building a Better Bloke seminar is all of my learning, thoughts and theories on women distilled into one day. It’s not gonna change you into George Clooney overnight. What it will do is turn on the light and make you realise that success with women and being attractive to the opposite sex is something you can learn and refine and, one day, master.

If you really want to.

    Of course you can learn how to talk to women, but you have to START YOUNG.
    In my case, it was during puberty for both genders.
    I came to understand then, not only did they speak a different language, the subjects also were entirely different to that of males. At this early age, I realised we were from two different planets (this was waaaay before “Men are from Mars . . . ), by the way they talked and what they talked about.
    Voracious reading, illustrated books on anatomy were a tremendous help as was anything on Hormones, Testosterone or “women’s things”, assisted greatly in cross-communication.
    Coupled with a keen ear to their conversations, this gave me an insight as to how to communicate with the opposite sex. (NB: I said “insight”, NOT “understanding” – that will NEVER be achieved, something else I learnt at that early age.)
    So, when my daughter entered her early teens and while I often muttered under my breath, “Where the hell did this she-devil come from” and, “I didn’t sire this harradin”, I knew what NOT to say, and what TO say and when to say it.
    The generation had changed, but the gist was still the same. Suffice to say we both emerged relatively unscathed.
    So, grab your sons and get them started now, with the current generation, the signs are it will never be too early to learn.
