So far yes.

Hmmm... Yes I do at some point. But not that much. When I was taking the
Jung personalilty test I was mostly red and just a bit of green. Green
being the softer being nice to people side. I am also more of a feeler
and intuiter than a logical thinking guy.

For me seduction is supplication. And it's completely ok to do it as a
tactic if it fits your personality (dominant/supplicant lover). For me
calibration is a form of supplication. I calibrate more in the sense of
seing if I went too far with a specific tactic and she goes a bit
self-conscious or if I put her on the right emotional level and can
escalate to the next phase. But since I don't wait for certain signals
to start kino, to start play-fighting, it comes out of me and I am the
source of this emotion, she merely follows or stays where she is. If she
stays where she is it means I have more work to do and I better go work
on the next one in the meantime. Doing calibration is equal to being

I calibrate in on/off switches and try not to worry to much what will
happen as long as we are having fun in the exchange.

For example imagine the guy that just says hi and puts his arm around
her waist. He already calibrated by knowing she is hot for him. If she
stops him he gets a CLEAR signal that she is not interested. However
even then he can persist and still melt her heart by merely hanging
around her (like a supplicant seducer) or he could next her and sarge
ten more chicks in the room and let her watch.

At no time am I supplicating my persona to anyone. I do not become
someone else since I am my attractive self. Girls calibrate to me, they
follow me and I gladly lead them where I want them to go on an emotional

I used C&F on waitresses, university professors, medical doctors,
teenagers, club hostesses, store clerks, psychiatrists, old, young etc...

And yeah it works very well since you *BAM* skip the bullshit and you're
talking to her inner child right there and then.

Ok this is true. Everyone is a mix of everything.

I am saying it is quite hard to change who you are (your attractive
self) to win some immediate (kiss-ass) points with someone you don't know.

For me calibration does not exist at a conscious level more than you can
feel the interaction went somewhere but then it's too late anyway since
you are already having that feeling. It's an on/off switch that can cure
symptoms of an interaction at best.

I have a limited set of emotional manipulation tools and if they don't
work it means I would have to evoke them in another way which would take
me too much energy.

For me that is extremely cerebral and I actually don't give a flying
fuck about how she views herself. This is being a male girlfriend to a
girl. Playing therapist is not too far.

Yes. That's what I look for or feel for.

OK this I can relate to. When she comes into a certain emotional state
she will give cues about it.

I couldn't agree more, just that in me I get feelings from the calibration.
