These aren’t newbie mistakes like not dealing with your approach anxiety that I covered in my how to get women article. These are once get past those a bit.
Failure to Escalate – For guys that are used to getting blown out, it can be a great feeling to be able to approach a beautiful women who other men are scared to talk to and have a great, fun, conversation for 20 minutes. Enjoy that a few times and then buckle down; we have a job to do here. Keep pushing forward emotionally, logistically, and especially physically. If you’re not touching her (socially) within a minute or two of meeting her, you’re doing something wrong.
Not being enough of a challenge – This is also natural for men who didn’t have much luck with women before they started learning Love Systems. As a newbie, you’re doing all of these things to attract beautiful women. When you start to get good, a lot of these things are overkill. The better you get, the more you should be focusing on qualification instead of attraction. (Google the Love Systems Triad if you’re not 100% familiar with these terms.
Sexualization – Whether you want her as a Friend with Benefit or for a Long Term Relationship, your intermediate goal is to start a sexual relationship with her. The guy who is sleeping with her has a much better chance of being her boyfriend (if that’s what he wants and if he knows what he’s doing) than the guy who is “dating and waiting”. Be a man. Express your desires. Women expect this from alpha males.
Intermediate sticking points vary a lot more than newbie sticking points. But if you’re beyond the newbie stage and you’d still like to get better, hopefully these will help!
