Life Lessons I Learned Playing Poker

Some of the most valuable life lessons and skills I possess were learned while sitting behind a stack of chips trying to make rent.

Some quick background: When I was in my early 20’s I took a serious liking to poker, so much so I was spending 40-60 hours a week with cards in my hand.

Why you Fear Rejection, and how you Will Overcome your Fear

The fear of rejection is one of the largest hurdles standing between a man and his goals. Almost all men have failed to catch the interest of a girl because the fear of rejection stopped them before they made a move.

Make no mistake, inaction is it’s own failure. Couple this with the fact you still didn’t get the girl and you have now failed twice.

A Gentleman’s Guide to Cannabis

Like alcohol or nicotine, marijuana is a drug that can be enjoyed maturely. Just because you know how a teenaged pothead acts when high, doesn’t mean you have to as well.

While the difference between drinking like a teen and a responsible Man are obvious and evident to most of us, cannabis is still less prevalent and storied in general society, causing it to have maintained a lot of its negative connotations and stereotypes.

You’re tired of falling for men who take you for granted, who mistreat you and make you feel ordinary: you’re tired of being hurt. Here’s how to avoid these land-mines.

How to Fake Confidence: Make Strong Moves

Everyone knows confidence is the key to success, but when you don’t have the level of confidence you would like you need to learn how to fake it.

It’s a bit of a paradox: to be confident you must be successful, but to be successful you must be confident. The key to breaking the paradox is in one simple truth you need to hold dear; no one knows what is going on inside your head. Simply put, no one can know if you are confident or if you are just good at faking it.

If you want to have success talking to and picking up women, you are going to need to learn how to fake confidence until you are brimming with it. One easy way to do this is to focus on just one aspect of the whole game: making strong moves. Continue reading “How to Fake Confidence: Make Strong Moves” »

It’s possible to enjoy your kinks in a way which not only makes you a gentleman, but makes you more desirable to women.

Everyone has their own kinks, fetishes, fantasies, and desires. The degree in which you push these is the main thing which separates the freaks from the vanilla.

But when someone orders an Old Fashioned you should make them a classic Old Fashioned, not your personal version.

Old Fashioned Cocktail Recipe

The old fashioned is one of the most basic and perfect whiskey cocktails you can make. It’s called an Old Fashioned because it’s made in the style of the original cocktail, no frills, no gimmiks.

The appeal of an old fashioned is to have a drink which both tastes like whiskey, but is ‘easy to drink’. While you still taste the full force of the whiskey the harsh notes are eliminated and replaced with those more vibrant and sweet.
