Anti-Slut Defense

Anti-Slut Defense is any action a girl takes to shut down sexual escalation, often suddenly and counter to her previous behavior. Typically they do this by breaking a sexual mood through sudden, often irrational, inexplicable verbal or non-verbal non-compliance. It tends to strike just when you think everything is lined up and the full-close is …

No One Is Nice! (Especially YOU!)

I don’t mean this in some nihilistic sense, by the way.  And I don’t mean it in the sense that when someone does something nice they are doing it for purely selfish reasons, to “feel good”. That’s an old argument for others to make (though I think that it’s quite valid).  What I’m going to …

How to Run Game Solo

If you’re out solo gaming, here are your best strategies. 1) Mixed 3-set Find a mixed 3-set (2 girls and one guy) and take the girl that he’s ignoring.  Most guys always focus in on the girl they like leaving the 2nd girl really bored, so she’ll generally be really happy to have someone to …

This is going to be a fairly quick post as compared to the other two posts I’m working on that are multi week projects to get just right. Many girls get pretty upset that guys learn PickUp and dating skills in general.  Over the years it’s often been compared to makeup for men.  I always …

Monster Killers

I’ve gotten so much out of watching Jordan Peterson’s lectures.  It’s really impressive how deep what he says goes, and how many meanings are contained in the ideas he puts across.  One of them is the idea of the dragon slayer or the monster killer. First off, a monster is a representation of things in …

Emotional Payoffs vs Real Gains

A few years ago, I read a series of blog posts on ribbonfarm.com that he ultimately turned into a book called The Gervais Principle. When I read it originally I thought it was a really interesting post, and I thought that it was a good model for corporate reality. But outside of the corporate world, …
