In order to get a girl’s attention you need to stand out from the mass. People judge by the looks and you have only seconds to demonstrate that you are a man of style. You don’t need to “peacock” (the term is explained below) like Mystery and Style in the picture above, but if you’re comfortable with it, give it a try! It’s a good way to push yourself out of the comfort zone. So, first and foremost you have to look at the way you dress:
Is your dress boring or is it interesting and unique?
Itâ€™s quite helpful to ask your friends about your outfit (but please donâ€™t be offended if they are critical, criticism will help you much more than a simple â€œYeah, youâ€™re the man!â€). Itâ€™s even better if you find some girls to ask. Simply tell them you want to change your style a bit â€“ girls love all kinds of fashion questions. You can also ask girls on the street how they like your outfit and where you can buy some cool stuff.
If youâ€™ve already read the book I mentioned before called â€œThe Gameâ€, you are familiar with the â€œPeacock Theoryâ€. If not, here is an enlightening extract:
â€œPeacock theory is the idea that in order to attract the most desirable female of the species, it’s necessary to stand out in a flashy and colorful way. For humans… the equivalent of a flashy peacock tail is a shiny shirt, a garish hat, and jewelry that lights up in the darkâ€¦â€
That means you can get a girl’s attention and get her interested in you simply through the way you dress. You think wearing stuff like feather boas, cowboy hats or eye-catching jewelry is silly? Maybe it is. But think about this: How many times have you been approached by someone on your outfit? Not that much? Never?
Well, thatâ€™s what this stuff is good for – it allows women (mainly shy women) to start a conversation with you. If you have a cool answer and can demonstrate higher value you will most likely get her number. At the same time you demonstrate a high self-confidence wearing this stuff. And women love confident guys.
If you want to improve your sense of style, I recommend Magic Bullets by Savoy (he was formerly working with Mystery but the advice in the book is much more down-to-earth). Check out chapter 20, page 171.
P.S. Get rid of plaid and Hawaiian shirts. Magnum isnâ€™t the coolest guy in the world anymore.
Look for interesting necklaces, rings or wristlets. Why? Because every woman wants to know what they stand for.
