Have you ever noticed that bartenders are always doing something? It’s true. They keep busy by polishing glasses, mixing cocktails, taking orders or refilling the snack mix. And there is a surprising reason for it.

We all know that standards of decorum for the first date are not what they used to be ten years ago. Dating practices have changed as people are becoming more sexually liberal and open-minded. And with these loosening rules around first date propriety, how can people navigate between what is socially acceptable and perhaps too scandalous? This begs the following question: Should today’s singles have sex on the first date?
In the following, I will teach you a little trick that utilizes the element of surprise to ask women out on a date. I really like this technique because it is so non-needy and most women never get asked out that way. It’s definitely an experience she won’t forget so soon.
In 2008 or so, I first became involved with pickup. The thought of buying a book or video, studying it, and afterwards being able to date beautiful women was quite appealing to an 18-year old boy who had never kissed a girl before.
However, what seemed like a promising undertaking at first – “Once I know all the tricks and techniques I can have any girl” – turned out not to be the solution I was hoping for.
Frustrated after years of unsuccessfully working on my pickup skills and back at “women want money, fame, and looks” I started to ask myself, “Almost every gorgeous woman is dating some guy. Who are these men, the sexiest women are seeing, and how can I learn their secret?”

You see her walking by, and she catches your eye.
Tall, slender, long blonde hair, and a walk that runway models aspire to…
You snap out of your daze, walk towards her, and approach.
“Hey, I know this is random, but I saw you walking by and you caught my eye. I had to meet you. I’m Dave.”
“Wow, thanks! I’m Jessica,” she replies and shakes your outreached hand.
The conversation shifts back to you. At that precise moment, your mind goes blank.
You mutter something bland, like “Yeah it’s good to meet you…” without adding any more value to the conversation.
“Yes, it is! But I have to run! Have a good day!” she says.
And just like that, in a split second, you miss your opportunity.
We’ve all been in that type of situation before. We start off well, but then go blank, and the conversation stalls.
So, how can you prevent this? What should you say and do after you approach her?
That’s what this post is all about!
Let’s dive in.
You are an awesome human being. You and I know that. But the women you want to meet don’t. They have never met you and have no prior knowledge about you. So, unless you walk up to them and start a conversation, potential mates can’t know that you are this attractive guy they want to be with. Or can they?
Friendships are complicated – especially between men and women. And they get even more complicated when one of them falls in love with the other person. Being in love with your best friend can be painful and awkward. There are many questions that come to mind in such situations: “Does she feel the same?”, “Am I allowed to confess my love to her?”, “Am I going to ruin the friendship if I tell her the truth?” Let’s find some answers and make sure you either end up together or at least, stay friends.
Finding a girlfriend is viewed as something that just happens somehow. Most people think luck or destiny are what it takes to find the “one”.
This post features a story of a new friend of ours, author and bodybuilder Nicolas Cole.
Relationships are complicated endeavours. Love sometimes makes us believe that no matter what difficulties come along, we can surpass them. Life, however, writes its own stories.
Nicolas Cole shows in this very personal story, how cultural differences, a seemingly small crack in an otherwise special relationship, can turn into a mile-wide canyon between the two of you.
