Example text

She crumbles in no time flat. If she keeps saying, “We shouldn’t really be doing this…” and you sense the situation calls for you to say something, simply start talking SEXY to her. Her: “Oh god… we shouldn’t be doing this…” You: “You’re right… we shouldn’t do this… it’s so bad…” And keep going. You may have heard the advice “agree with what she’s saying” before. Indeed, agreeing with her disengages her logical, rational mind which is the source of all mental resistance. After all, how can she argue with someone who’s agreeing with her?

Tell her that you don’t feel you have to put up a front with her like you do with other girls. Tell her that she’s different than all the other clubber girls you meet. ” Perhaps like the day your puppy died and how it emotionally affected you and ever since that day you never take your life for granted. The story should be about YOU and show your more sensitive side. While running this bond and connection material, be aware of your nonverbal sexual cues. Your physical and energetic intimacy and deep rapport should match the intimacy and deep rapport of your words.

You’ve already made it clear that you like her. Just keep building more comfort. Sure, if the situation naturally arises for you to demonstrate value (like talking to the hot lifeguard babe in front of her), you can do that, but don’t make it your main mission. The main goal is to press FORWARD on to the next step – to get her over at your house and build more bond and connection with her there.
