Can you learn how to talk to women?

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 … More

Women are not puzzles

I’ve been noticing something a little disturbing lately and it’s not just within the seduction community.

It’s certainly exaggerated within the seduction community, but most definitely not limited to it.

What I’m referring to is the clinical nature in which men interact with the opposite sex: they see a beautiful woman and want to approach her but there’s this problem that needs to be solved before you can get what you want.

The problem of “HER” … More

The straw test: How much do you like her?

I was at the pub some years ago and it was mobbed, five deep at the bar.

I bought drinks; a couple of beers for my mate Jack and me and vodkas for the women. I paid for the hooch, got the drinks in the tight-four position and burrowed into the crowd.

Half way back to our spot, I looked at the voddies and thought ‘Hmmm, forgotten the straws.’ That’s when I asked myself: ‘How much do you like this chick? Is it really worth going back for the straw?’

Now, a lot of you might say this has nothing to do with attraction, that it is gentlemanly to fetch a woman a straw. Me, I think it’s gentlemanly to buy drink after drink for a girl and, last time I checked, even toddlers could successfully sip out of just a glass … More

Who is the WOSA?

Men’s toilets have very little going for them.

They smell like gastric juice, have boogies wiped on the tiles at eye level and are home to at least one drunk whispering to his penis at the urinal.

However, having cleaned toilets while in between empires, I can tell you that men’s dunnies are a good deal more hygienic than the average chicks’ brasco which often resembles triage in a M*A*S*H episode.

The only other thing that recommends the male side of the tiles is a certain mystery woman whose fame has been hampered for too long — the Wipe-On Sex Appeal girl … More

Can I stay faithful to one woman forever?

Is it possible for the average male, short of chemical castration, to keep his spanner in his strides for the duration?

The short answer, I believe is yes. The longer answer: how?

The only blokes who really qualify to answer this question are either dead or very close to it.

All the guys I know who answer “yes” or “without a doubt” are in their 20’s, 30’s or 40’s. That’s the relationship equivalent of cocky adventure tourists doing karate kicks to warm up in Everest base camp. You just know some cabanossi-skinned Sherpa’s gonna be picking up the guy’s toes on the walk back down the mountain … More

Where do we stand with the one night stand?

A buddy of mine I’ll call Jack, who bears an uncanny resemblance to Chesty Bond, was set up with a girl some years ago.

The night went splendidly. The girl, Penny, approved of Jack and certainly seemed up for a, ahh, deepening of intimacies back at his place.

Jack? Well, he’s an old-fashioned type when sober, and was hoping for lightening bolts. By 1am, when he’d felt no electricity, he decided to err on the side of gallantry and go home alone … More

Things Emigrating Taught Me About Picking-up Women

By Richard Bourne

A few years ago, when I was 30, I moved here from England.

I put my life in a couple of bags, bought a one way ticket (and a visa, don’t worry) and got on a plane.

Emigrating taught me a lot about myself, and a few things about other people and the world we live in.

Here are three things I learned about picking up women and I share them with you on the condition you promise not to use them to steal any of the ones I want … More

When Barbie is a prawn

How many times have you experienced this scenario?

Your friend is dating a girl with the personality of Katherine Knight, who bears a striking resemblance to Wilson Tuckey but because she’s endowed with a porn star hard-body, all your buddy has to say is: “Mate, have you seen the rig?” and there’s nods of understanding from all your friends.

Many men will overlook a woman’s mental instability, body odour, absence of a sense of humour, absence of intelligence, even absence of teeth — if she has an incredible figure.

Ironically, it was a woman who I first heard term these females “prawns” because “you can chuck away the head and just keep the body” … More
