Do you have that friend that hook up with absolutely anyone? I do. And god do I envy them. I wondered for so long what it would be like to be the type of person that was virtually guaranteed to go home with someone at the end of the night.
I was in the middle of a serious dry spell (I hadn’t had sex in almost a year, and I was wondering if I’d qualify as a born-again virgin at that point) and I was desperate to get laid. No matter what I did, I just couldn’t close.
Sure, I’d have a heavy makeout sesh but never get asked up to bed. Sure, I’d have plenty of first and second dates, but I’d never get to the date where I’d get laid, put simply I’m not sure if I would find a fuck pal that shared my interest in amazing food. Sure, I had game, but I just didn’t have enough!
So, I swallowed my pride, and I asked them what their secret was… they so happened to have a few pointers to give me. And they actually worked! I’m no longer sexless! I’m actually pretty likely to get laid on any given night out! I couldn’t hold onto this knowledge for selfish gain, so I decided to share it with you, dear reader:
1. Be confident
One thing I was lacking in this period of time was confidence. And if I did find any, it was usually at the bottom of my second or third or tenth shot glass.
What I really needed to yank myself out of this dry spell was a little confidence in myself. I found mine at the gym. I’m no CrossFit junkie but just working out did give me the extra boost I needed to talk to hot people at the bar with minimal liquid courage.
2. Ignore your target
Now I know that this tip seems kind of counterproductive, but I promise you that it works. All you have to do is pay your desired target a little bit of attention (that might be by buying them a drink or a brief conversation) and then take it away.
People want what they can’t have. So create the illusion that they can’t have you.
3. If they’re not paying attention to you, literally have one short conversation with one of their friends of the same gender and watch what happens.
This kind of goes hand in hand with ignoring the person you’re looking to sleep with! People are jealous. I don’t care how much someone says that they’re not jealous or they couldn’t care less about someone they like talking to other people, but they’re fucking jealous.
If you’ve slept with someone before or have flirted with someone, who isn’t paying you attention on a particular night then talk to their friend. Seriously, make them think that you’re more interested in their friend for a split second. You’ll be surprised how quickly they’ll ask if you “Wanna get out of here?”
4. Be a mystery
People are attracted to people they don’t quite understand. People are drawn to the quiet type who’s silent and sexy in the corner while everyone is blabbing about themselves.
So, leave something to the imagination (both in how you dress and how you speak). Be mysterious. You’ll be surprised how many people will fall for you if you give them a blank slate to project on.
5. Hold your liquor
While I’m a huge fan of a little liquid courage, you have to make sure that you’re not sloppy. If you find yourself getting a little shitty, take the L for the night and go home.
Don’t try to hook up with someone and make a total fool out of yourself.
