Yea, I'm glad they helped you. They where not some random advice, its stuff I
did notice about you guys in field, so I had to make an impact. What made the
trick is that you actually took the advice that is more than what 90% of the
people are willing to do, most will just rationalize their behaviour and keep
doing it their way. Good for you!

He still has to open up a little, hes thinking a bit to much and doing a bit to
little. Sometimes I think ASF has given him some hi-tech excuses for inaction.

Of course!!!! Absolutely. That why my Italian wing and I always go for tapas
before going sarging. And why my wing here and I get drunk and fool around
before going sarging, when I hit the club I'm usually very excited from before.

Good good good. Leave the interaction there, that set can be easily reopen for
social proof.

I wouldn't call it BT but alcoholic intoxication level.

Excellent. BTW, good opener, I use that kind of stuff very often, its dumb as
shit but set a good teasing fun frame.

Good. However try to hold that set longer for yourself. One of them shows more
interest and you introduced your wing to divide and isolate. It was to soon,
reciprocate interest to the get by given her more kino, maybe a sideways hug
_while talking to the other_ that will make both comfortable. Hold that fucking
set alone by default.

No its not. Its probably saying "damn my wing is hotter than I am, I hate him,
I hate the chick", and that sort of toxic crap. Maybe its not, but it probably
is, try to be aware of it if its the case.

NO, very unhealthy. I told you before, I might seem to make you feel better,
but don't think your mind is going to put up with that shit, it knows better.
Your wing is more attractive than you are, accept it, mine is also. A girl
would rather talk to the most attractive guy, same as you would. Though huh? It
is, however same as you might rather talk to a girl that not thehottest but the
nicest most fun etc, she will also. Actually in the long run girl care less
about physical appearance than we do.

Now you are learning, awesome. Have you already began to rehearse in your mind
the interaction?

Domination with out neediness, that is very powerful. Grab the girls and move
them around, be dominant. You have to kiss a girl on the cheek?(very common in
Spain) don't lean to her and kiss, not that this show neediness, its a social
convention, but pull the girl into you by the waist and then kiss her.

That was darkvidator, right? He should open more and not lower them so much.

Yea, you are missing something here, rapport shouldn't be putting things
harder. I don't have much advice in this, i haven'tfigure this out yet.

Definitely. But better still have fun, and be entertained with the girl. That
means, make jokes about the girl, show that you are having fun thanx to them.
That shows that the reason you are there with them is not that you like them,
but that you find them entertaining.

Yes. I was thinking about this the other day. Are you combing off as to nice?
the solution might not be to start been more of a jerk, but maybe start making
SOI, I think thats the jugglers way. Nice but aggressive.

I'm sure you are not versed. I'm getting it now, and it something that would
have been completely alien to me just a year ago. Just a tip, kino your friends
more, and learn how it feels, thats the way to do it with a chick just from the
starts of the convo. Later I use sensual kino as a SOI.

Absolutely true. This has been said 100 times, and every time someone realizes
this its like the first time. You really haveto experience it to have it make

Be more kino. Kino is about comfort. About rapport, I'm still not in a position
to offer advice.

Yes, work on inner game». Be less theoretical and less arrogant. Assume things
as they are, build your own maps based on common sense and experience, do not
try to adapt reality to the maps here on mASF. You'll have a chance to refine
those maps, trust me.
