I have recreated another awkward social situation with teddy bears. It happened in the same bar as the previous video.
Background: I approached a girl and we ended up talking for about five minutes. She was a medical school student but appeared slow and ditzy, only giving me one-word answers and blank stares. I figured she wasn’t interested, so I ended the conversation with, “Well it seems like you want to head back to your friends, it was nice chatting.” The night was young, no big deal.
But then fifteen minutes later she got right next to me. She was so close that her back was rubbing against my drink-holding hand. This is what followed:
As you can see I fell into her trap. She wanted me to keep trying, and I took the bait (albeit reluctantly). It’s surprisingly common how often a girl gives you encouragement after a failed approach by coming closer or giving you more eye contact. Needless to say, it’s a trap. She’ll just reject you again. This is how women get their kicks, while for men it takes at least getting our dick sucked to achieve the same level of satisfaction.Tweet Follow @rooshv

I hope this was a throw away approach as well.
If not, then I hope you’re bringing more energy and charisma to approaches then what the dialogue implied in the video.
“It’s surprisingly common how often a girl gives you encouragement after a failed approach…”
this is truth and it seems to be happening more and more. it used to be that if a girl didn’t dig me she just wouldn’t return my calls or she’d avoid me. lately though, girls seem to be enouraging me to make moves even when it turns out that they have no interest. it’s like lucy suckering charlie brown with the football.
case in point: i hung out with this chick a couple of months ago. there was very little chemistry. she just wasn’t digging me. at some point, i decided to just go ahead and make a move anyway, cause i wasn’t about to consent to friend mode. i went for it. she wasn’t down. i called it a night and eighty-sixed the number from my phone.
i get a text from her the next day about something i left in her bag. i answered it two days later. she then texts me three or four more times over the next few weeks; none of which did i answer right away. in her last text she mentions this thing i left in her bag again. i knew it was a lucy move, but just to prove it i texted her back and suggested that we hang out again and she could give it to me in person. surprise surprise, i never heard back from her.
is this really how broads get their kicks these days?
These animated re-enactments are hilarious. Keep ‘em coming.
Bitches ain’t shit. This kind of stuff and what jr posted happens a lot to me. I am thinking to just call it quits and focus on making money, traveling and martial arts.
Roosh, after seeing two videos of your approach skills, I am publicly embarrassed for you. The girl is right. You sound like a socially incompetent weirdo. If a guy who sells goofy men books on pickup doesn’t even know how to lead a girl to meet his expectations then the entire pua industry really is full of nerds with words (and no action).
“You’re so weird. What’s your name?”
1. Why do women encourage re-opening even if they’ve already rejected you? The same reason we talk to fat chicks. Because any attention from the opposite sex is better than no attention at all, and attention from an unattractive person beats standing around by yourself feeling like a loser. But in the end, it’s still not going to happen.
2. Anytime a girl says “you’re weird” or “that’s weird” you’ve probably lost her. Weird seems to be girl-code equivalent for ‘creepy’.
@JR: ‘Lucy move’ – I like that and am going to use it.
these videos are so fucking funny
Blah, If a girl is that boring, why bother re-opneing, for shits and giggles I would just self-amuse and say some outlandish shit.
Solo’s last blog post: Facebook Attention whores.
Once again, love the animated re-enactments!
I have had both success and failure with girls who give encouragement after a failed approach. It can go either way. We are not mind readers, can’t always assume it’s a trap. Sometimes girls simply don’t want to seem easy, especially true when they are with a friend and don’t want to appear slutty. she may be interested but still trying to make up her mind. She may be a flake, but still interested.
Its a trap, but I don’t see any way to really avoid it. Unless the rejection was so brutal and clear, you have no choice but to take another stab at a girl giving those signals.
I hate giving girls at bars and clubs additional free ego boosts, but any girl interested enough to bait you could prob be salvaged too.
is it a coincidence that the computer’s voice really sounds exactly like Roosh?
I think Roosh did the right thing, mas o menos. Call a chick out good-naturedly, explain why the situation is weird, show mastery of understanding over her behaviour. However, he’s also right that he should have cut bait (i.e., turned his back) before she left again. Moreover, since these videos don’t allow for inflection/tone/sarcastic smirk etc, we can’t see how Roosh was delivering these lines. I imagine he was running pretty solid game though…I’ve seen him in action. This chick was just a dud from the get-go (one word answers = socially lame). After all, she’s in med school…unsocialized nerds abound.
Bit of a sophomore slump but funny nonetheless. Thanks for putting in the time to make this.
On a serious note – “What’s your name?” is a strong IOI, no?
My instinct would have been to plow through after the ‘Park-Moon’ bit. but seems like you wanted her to do show more interest before reactivating the charm. Did you not bother enough coz you “knew” the rejection was coming or was it hindsight?
I’m no expert but this didn’t seem like the tightest game.
The best example of tight game from you that comes to mind was actually in a story narrated by The Rookie, when he almost smashed after you did. That was solid demonstration of aloof, uncaring and dominant and the girl clearly dug it.
This video is not meant for a game display, but to get a cheap laugh at what I thought was a funny situation. I’m sorry to disappoint you guys, but you may continue to analyze the teddy bears for my obviously amateur game.
I think it was funny. At first I thought she might be giving you proximity IOI’s but you were definitely on point for the second part about her just wanting the attention. I would have taken the bait too. Lol

@ jr. “is this really how broads get their kicks these days?”
If a skank rejects you do not even bother talking with her again even if she tries to make it appear she is interested. Although Roosh did the right thing by asking her why she was doing what she was thus forcing her to come clean or be honest, the problem is however is that females are not logical and are incapable of speaking from the heart. So her action was to say something like “You’re wierd”.
Roosh is lucky she didn’t call the police or something or call the manager to have him kicked out. There is no end to cunt behavior in English speaking countries because the culture condones it. if you want sane, romantic adventures do so in another non-feminized country.
Roosh replied: “This video is not meant for a game display, but to get a cheap laugh at what I thought was a funny situation.”
I hope you keep these coming for the following 2 reasons:
1. They’re funny as hell.
2. They help newbs like myself realize that even when you’re good, you’ll still have awkward conversations, throw aways, convos that go nowhere, etc. A lot of newbs think guys with game are always smooth when they roll up, never say anything mediocre or awkward, and basically always get great reactions from women. Realizing that you guys just don’t give a fuck and will talk to girls about whatever comes to mind, even if it sometimes becomes awkward, has reduced approach anxiety.
But was this a legitimate/earnest re-approach, or just a throwaway engagement for a smile? If it was meant to be legit, then of course calling her out on standing nearby was too brazen, too ‘close to the bone,’ and would put her on the spot, making her defensive with the “you’re weird” remark. I would rather say that ‘fate’ had brought her nearby, what a ‘fortunate coincidence’ it was, ‘divine providence’, blah, blah, blah.
This is the funniest thing I’ve seen all day, please keep making these. Genius!
I cannot believe how funny this shit is.
Roosh, is the cadence of your delivery of the words the same in real life as it is in bear world? If so, that makes it even funnier. The pauses seem to further enhance the discomfort you are putting the girl in by asking her why she is so close to you.
“What’s your name?”
“FUCK YOU, That’s my name!”
That would have been the best response.
Interesting. I’m no game expert but I suspect your pick up would of been different if you didn’t call her out on the fact she got next to you. I also think she did that subconsciously. Whenever I called out women on something they did they would just ignore me after that. Even if she did it on purpose you made it seem like she was exhibiting slutty behavior.
That would have been a good time to bring up “did you know that most people cross their arms left over right and etc”. Just weird her out.
I think your social awareness openers are not working.
[...] Roosh creates humor out of an awkward pickup [...]
i just had a bunch of people in the coffee shop look over at me as I lol’d at this shit.
Bronn’s last blog post: School….
I have a different take on this from most of you. I believe that the fact that she came back again obviously trying to get his attention meant that she was interested. although it is possible that she was trying to set him up to reject him again, I don’t think that is likely. women are complicated, but I don’t think she would have come back if she wasn’t interested.
Probably there were no other guys of interest around or they weren’t giving her attention: Solution get attention from guy she rejected, I mean hey it usually works.
Women very rarely give second chances, they are not socialized to be altruistic. Her reaction is understandable in that she supplication and instead got called on her bullshit.
I think a lot of the attention whoring girls tend to do comes from a belief that guys are everywhere and extremely expendable. lately I’ve found it easier to go to bars with less people or on off days. You won’t get the same number of approach opportunities, but women will usually give you their undivided attention if you’re not a complete fuck up.
Berto’s last blog post: Idealistic crack.
I’m oping Roosh’s approach wasn’t representative of what was in the speech to text video.
Lots of girls are like this. They look for attention and these girls usually want the Wow or the Tingle of some severe behavior – asshole game or to be put in their place.
This is where asshole game has to come out – and the temperature has to rise incrementally.
Sarcastic humor usually does it.
“my name… my name is Lukas” XD
I love these animations. People its designed to be funny at the same time.
i laughed, good stuff.
She was giving you a chance to be different from how you were before. She was delusion ally hoping that you would do something she liked more. You didn’t. She still wasn’t into you. Women can be persistent in this way.
V’s last blog post: It’s Always Personal.
Keep having the same flirtatious behaviour with a woman I see fleetingly at a pub I frequent. Last night I appear, and I’ve just cropped my hair – something she’d never seen before. So she says, “Hi John, or are you in fact John.”
Me: “Um, no, my name is Aloicious”, sarcastically. “I’ve forgotten your name.”
Me: “What was your name again?”
Her: “Oh, I need a new name, let’s try Julie”.
Me: “That’s funny, cuz I have a Julie’s number in my blackberry and I was wondering who that was, I was going to give her a call, is that your number in my phone?”
Her: “No, I’m not handing out my phone number to you:
Me, looking at her, puzzled: “Um, I wasn’t asking.”
She walked off, clearly stumped that her whole hot-cold routine isn’t working.
