How To Look Sexy and Confident In Pictures

For all you guys who love PlentyofFish, OkCupid, Match, Tinder, Instagram, and Facebook game... here is a great video on how to make your face photogenic and get more dates.

Peter Hurley is one of my few top Photographers on YouTube.  This video shows a great facial technique and it only takes a few minutes to perfect.

And remember, take multiple pictures with slight angle changes and facial tweaks.  Pick the best one from many pictures.  Girls do it all the time, why can't you?

Common Sense On Seeking Advice

I would say I'm a pretty nice guy.  My level of trolling in real life is probably 100 fold less than online... at least with people I know or people I perceive as generally nice or sincere.  I wouldn't say I am famous... far from it... but usually on a night out in a Vegas club, I get called out maybe a few times.  Even when I am maxed out with 3 students, I will still take a few minutes to say hi and have a quick chat.  Usually people ask if I am Squattincassanova and mention a few things in a particular video they like and they share some info about themselves. I give them a few tips and so forth.

Then, you also get guys shown in the example below.

Seriously, WTF is this shit? If you want knowledge / value / feedback from someone, its common sense to do some background research and at least show to that person that you are serious and committed.   Its just common courtesy.

Lets say for an example that you're applying for med school and you go to a particular university and the interviewer asks you about why you want to apply at this university and you didn't even know the name of the fucking school let alone why you like it.  Is that a slap in the face or what?

This is why so many pickup guys fail.  They do very little background work or provide value themselves and they expect other people to just provide endless value in return.   A lot of times its a "me me me" mentality.  This is the very reason why guys who are good with game are always driven away from lairs.

On the flip side, there are also people who do background research, read my blogs, figure out what I want, and in exchange offer value in other forms whether its marketing, interning, video work, various other forms of knowledge that I don't have.  I will admit, there are a lot of things in this world that I don't know much about.  I have noticed that a lot of guys who do pickup coaching end up with hanging out and mingling with other successful people who initially don't have game but have strengths in other areas such as business, marketing, and other entrepreneurship.

The other thing I have noticed is that people who are willing to pay for bootcamps generally are BETTER people to hang out with and coach than people who expect it for free.  The average person who had paid for my bootcamp has been significantly better quality than the average guys I meet in lairs and I have been to a lot of lairs.  Why is this the case?  They are investing money, time, and also travel so they are likely to be more serious.  They tend to be more hard working and are more career oriented.  They are likely to be doing something with their lives.

So in a nutshell, the next time when seeking advice from people, give them some respect by doing some background work and think of certain strengths that you have and offer value so that its a win/win situation.  This guy above asked me how he can search for me on YouTube when my fucking link is on my Facebook profile and not to mention my Facebook name is the exact same as my YouTube channel and my location is listed on Facebook as well.

Taboo - Best Game To Improve Verbals

That's right, I'm the only guy cool enough to tell you to play a 13 year+ board game.  The game Taboo is one of my all time favorite board games and it will improve your verbals and pickup skills.

Its both word association and concept associate at the same time.  You try to get your friend to guess a word without using the 5 most common words listed on the card.  It forces you to use synonyms, ideas, concepts to help your friend guess the word.

The video does a good job at explaining.

Here is another example.

Word is:  Camera

You can't use the following words:

So what are ways to get around these words?  You quickly start generating a few ideas.  No camera manufacturers are listed so you can start by those.
  • Nikon
  • Canon
  • Sony
You can't use "picture" but what about components of a picture?
  • Megapixels
  • Resolution
  • Aperture
  • Shutter Speed
  • Focus
  • Lighting
  • White Balance
Components of a camera are not listed so what are some words we can use there?
  • Lens
  • Flash
  • Batteries
  • LCD Screen
  • Timer
  • Tripod
  • Filters
What about names of famous photographers who use this item?
  • Ansel Adams
  • Peter Lik
What about websites and programs that you can use?
  • Flickr
  • Facebook
  • Picasa
  • Lightroom

I'm obviously going overboard to make some extra examples.  Hopefully your teammate should have guessed this a long time ago.  If not, punch him in the face and make some smarter friends.  Hopefully this example I provided shows how a simple board game can drastically improve your verbal and mental ability to network many words, ideas, and concepts.  Its great for making your conversations more interesting, more specific, and you never run out of things to say.

Find a group of 4 or more friends and do this on a chill night.  Girls are welcome too so it doesn't have to be a circle jerk of pickup guys.

Quick Pickup Tip #2

If you're pulling a girl and she lost her phone or her phone battery died or her friend has her phone and its seriously distracting her and affecting your ability to pull, one option is to quickly offer to get her friends number and assure her that she can contact her friends if she needs to get a hold of them.  Then attempt to isolate her and go for the pull. 

Reason & Background Story:
I don't know what it is but almost on a nightly basis, I find girls losing their phone, dropping their phone, or getting it stolen.  Its happened so many times where friends and students of mine were in set and the girl loses the phone and the set was going well but then it completely goes to shit.  Maybe its because they are clumsy, maybe its because girls don't wear pants with pockets, or maybe they are dancing too much with their purse flaps open making it easy targets for thieves.

If a girl loses her phone, its probably a big ordeal and the advice here may not always work.  However, if her battery dies or her friend has her phone, this tactic works pretty well.  Just 2 weeks ago, my student was with a girl who was down but her friend had her phone.  She agreed to leave with us once she finds her friend who had the phone.  However, after walking 5 minutes around the club, she could not find the specific friend who had her phone but she bumped into her other guy friends who were also there.  Being worried that her buying temperature would drop after walking around looking for her phone so much, I suggested my student to number close the guy friend that she was there with.  I convinced the girl that her phone was safe with her other friend and that if we needed to get a hold of them, we can communicate via the guy friend.  Now obviously shes not likely going to ever use this number, but its one of those split second moments where as long as she feels "okay", she will go with it.  Needless to say, I drove them both back to my condo and he closed her on the bathroom floor.  Thanks for not getting anything on my couch LOL!

Funny thing was, my student was escalating slowly and the girl literally said "Well... I got to get back to my friends soon so lets get this over with (aka sex)".  My student was like "Wow! cool".  She was a Filipino girl.  My experience is that Filipino girls almost never have last minute resistance and they pretty much have sex on the first date.  I can recall countless times where that's happened as well as from other friends.  Do any of you readers agree?
