"A pimp is really a whore who has reversed the game on whores."
[Iceberg Slim - Pimp]
It just takes one simple thing to become "good with women": Act like one.
Most guys approach the d/m/ating scene with a "fake-it-till-you-make-it-attitude" of the wrong kind. They have realized that "chicks dig jerks", so they try to be one.
A lot of bullshit advice out there tell guys to think "what would an asshole do?" accordingly. And they fail. And keep failing as women see right through their facade.
The key is to ask yourself "what would a woman do?"
Here are some behavioral differences between guys and women that exemplify my point:
Women are not afraid to talk to strangers.
"Approach anxiety" is something so completely male, women simple do not get it. Not approaching a woman who looks at you is seen as a rejection or extreme cowardice. Women have never experienced an inhibition to talk to strangers. Women talk. All the time. Just see what happens at the register of the local grocery store. Women enjoy social interactions. They are not afraid of it. This is true for the most socially awkward female (women never think of themselves as being socially awkward - they always attribute it to the situation and/or people they interact with). An attractive guy is someone who talks to whomever, whenever - just like a chatty chick.
Women are testing/seemingly selective
As stage two put it - a woman posing a provocative question is not just sassy. It is a magic weapon. The man can be Brad Pitt in person - if he falters, reacts emotionally or even just in the socially accepted (expected) way to her test, she will lose attraction. The result is that women can turn any attractive member of the opposite sex into an unattractive person in an instant. It is like turning a hot 9 into an ugly fat chick with the snap of a finger. This mechanism (while also being a curse to any horny girl who just wants to get laid) gives women a tremendous advantage in the mating game. Most men cannot help but feeling attracted to all the pretty girls around him. Women feel that there are very few attractive men out there - and hence seem more selective (even when their actually needy enough to go home fist themselves). A man who is able to not just fall for a woman's looks, but testing her words and actions with the true intend of rejecting her for a mere sentence he dislikes is irresistible to a woman. Again, note that most women do not realize that the interactions leading to sex are not relevant for a man's attraction. If you do not (give her the impression) that she needs to "qualify" and can lose you any moment by failing to respond wittily, she will assume that something is seriously wrong with you (since the opposite is so second nature to her), exactly as in the case when you did not even approach.
Sex is no big deal to women
This one is key, too. If you talk about sex before it happened, you are out. Sex is something "that happens". Dogs that bark, don't bite. Women love men who are casual about sex. This does not mean that women do not attach meaning to sex. Sex can be the deepest emotional experience to a woman she ever had (that's why the tears after orgasm). However, women are very well able to dissociate sex - even very satisfying sex - from making love. A woman will have no inhibitions to sex a guy who does not seem to be confused about the two. But if she assumes the guy is not the kind of man who just gets fucked, but needs emotion and relationships to get to that point - she will not sleep with him unless it is in that framework. Women enjoy men who are "liberal" in their sexual attitude.
Women are empathetic and emotional
This one may be surprise for guys who read a lot of PUA literature. Isn't a man supposed to be all masculine/macho?
Having no sign of feelings can be attractive to a woman indeed.
But a man who is (feigning) deep emotional experience while not being emotional (i.e. fully in control of his feelings) is the non plus ultra for any woman. Mind you, what a woman wants is both: a inseminating alpha with sociopathic traits and a caring beta with a big heart. Getting both at the same time is what women call romance.
the fact that this is simply not achievable in practice (because any alpha becoming beta is not alpha anymore) does not matter to female fantasy. This is why romance novels and chick flicks end at the wedding day - the woman does not even need to think about the betaization of the guy who was moronic enough to commit and thereby give up his "unattainable" status.
Simulating "beta" moments while remaining alpha is an art - and a lethal weapon for women craving commitment. Alphas can keep several women in their harem for long periods of time by quenching the beta-thirst of the women they met with alpha posture.
Women are irrational when it comes to sex/relationships
What drives most men insane, can be used for your own advantage. Stop assuming logic when it comes to sical interactions. Break the rules. Do not repond in predicatble ways. Never. The result will be tremendous attraction. This is what women call a "mysterious" man.
This is how most guys fail during pickup and later on in relationships:
SHE: Did you just check out her ass?
YOU: (looking at her) I was just - no. I didn't!
This is the correct way of dealing with the situation
SHE: Did you just check out her ass?
YOU: (looking at her) I was just - did someone recommend that eye liner to you or did you select it yourself?
Do not be afraid to be childish. Ever seen how women start smiling when everyone around seems happy - just because of that (like little kids)?
If you suggest to go "oustide and roll down the nearest hill", because "you feel like it", women assume that you are an adventurous man, mysterious and spontaneous. You will not be seen as what you are that moment - a child.
Women do not worry
Guys worry about carreer, money, mortgages and their dicks. Women do not worry about their lives. Women mind what others think of them. Women do think about what to wear and what to eat. But they do not worry about existential crashes and crises. Most women feel like there are people (mostly men) in their lives who will "fix things" if they go wrong. There will always be a daddy. Women need a dense social network - and assume that their "connections", not the money or carreer is what ensures that life's obstacles will be dealt with. Having a similar aura of carelessness is appealing to women. Unless you are supposed to be the guy who "fixes" things for her (which turns you unattractive).
These are just a few examples of how a (masculine) man can gain points by taking on some feminine behaviors.
These behaviors (i.e. being emotional, silly and careless) will work all the way to the bedroom despite the fact that even bisexual women crave masculinity once their pants are down. It is important to find the right balance between male and female behavior to not miss the tipping point, but as a general rule - the more masculine you are naturally, the more you will gain from employing female behaviors once in a while.
