18 Reasons Why You Don’t Get Laid

1. You don’t know how to tell a story in a way that gets a girl’s imagination going.

You don’t know how to share interesting experiences that not only make her wish she was there with you but also make her want to be with you in future stories as well.

2. You’re too needy.

You contact a girl much more than she contacts you. You freak out if she doesn’t call back right away. You worry when there is nothing to worry about.

3. You don’t know how to build attraction.

You don’t know what a girl’s buttons are. You don’t know how to talk to her in a way that makes her more interested in you as time goes on.

4. You haven’t optimized your look.

Have you taken the time with different hair and beard configurations, or do you still look the same as five years ago, wearing that same shirt with the stain on the sleeve? You don’t need model good-looks to have sex with pretty girls.

5. You don’t drink.

Alcohol is a magical drug that makes getting laid significantly easier, and I’m not talking about getting girls drunk. Just one drink increases the chance you will get laid about 20%. Three drinks in her system is all you need.

6. You don’t work out.

You’re a fright to look at naked. You don’t have to be a meathead, but if you feel good about your body then you’ll feel good about yourself, and this comes across in a positive attitude with girls you talk to.

7. You’re a pussy.

You don’t want to get rejected. You don’t understand that guys who get the most women also get rejected the most.

8. You don’t know how to make a girl laugh.

I like to think that a childhood of watching Simpsons and Seinfeld is all you need to be funny, but there are humor how-to books you can learn from as well.

9. You have an extreme deformity that hopefully can be fixed with either hard work (obesity) or surgery (gigantic nose).

Modern science has come a long way.

10. You don’t have confidence.

You don’t like the man you see in the mirror. You don’t believe that you were meant to sleep with lots of girls. You’ve given up and sloth around playing video games or poker, praying and hoping that maybe one day you’ll get lucky instead of doing the work necessary to be an interesting, confident man that girls like.

11. You limit your prospect pool by only going after girls at work or in your meager social circle.

You think the only way to get a girl is to have some sort of prior introduction. You’ve never tried walking up to her cold in a bar, coffee shop, or bookstore.

12. You believe you need to be friends with a girl first.

You think that a girl has to see you as a buddy before she can see you as a lover. Unfortunately there is no animal lust in friendship. By being friends first, you almost guarantee that that’s all you’ll ever be.

13. You do dinner dates.

They greatly decrease your chances of getting action. Not only does all that food impede the absorption of the wine (see number five), but you’re sitting far away from her, unable to touch. Do drink dates instead where you can sit right next to her as that alcohol takes hold.

14. You’re not persistent.

You give up way too easily. You don’t understand that you may need to get rejected a few dozen times before you come across a girl that likes you. Maybe more. Second to not even trying, giving up too early is the most common mistake guys make.

15. Your breath reeks.

It doesn’t matter how fun or good-looking you are, but if your breath smells then you’re not getting anything.

16. You have limited life experiences.

It’s hard to hold a conversation with a women if all you know about is sports. You can fake it a bit if you’re a voracious reader, but the best way to talk about interesting things is to do interesting things. Chances are that doesn’t involve a computer or television.

17. You’re cheap.

You need to pay to play. This means keeping up a presentable appearance and going to places where the women are. Even the cheapest drinks at happy hour bars are going to cost you money, and many of those dates will not result in sex. Unless you’re in Thailand paying $10 a bang you’re going to have to get used to the idea that it costs money to get laid. Just don’t confuse this with showing off your money to women. If you’re interesting and make a girl laugh, she won’t care you’re poor in order to have sex with you, though she may not see you as long-term potential.

18. You’re not cool.

Do other people not want to hang out with you? Do they dislike your company? Do people make fun of you behind your back? Do you have trouble maintaining friendships? Do you look or dress like an idiot? While the definition of being cool depends on where you live, it does involve a degree of fitting into society, as the girls you will be trying to bang live in said society as well. If you’re going to be uncool, then you will have to hang in places where uncool girls are and try to get with them (e.g. goth bar).

Some of these things I learned from my own experiences and others from guys who taught me everything they knew about game. During an intense six year period starting in 2001 I was going out four nights a week throwing everything I had at the girls I wanted to sleep with. I did things like ask them why they were so drunk and even approached with stick figure drawings on napkins to make them laugh.

My learning curve was long and hard and not until the second year did a reliable system start to become clear. For the next four years after that I perfected and refined it into something that made my life a lot easier when it came to getting laid. I finally wrote my system down in a book called Bang.

Bang is a 65,000 word textbook that teaches you the skills to consistently get laid. I include step-by-step instructions on how to build attraction and escalate intimacy with the girls you want to have sex with. My goal was to create a guide that was all you need to get laid. The books contain hundreds of tips to help you accomplish that goal.

Because I don’t want you to spend your hard-earned money on something mysterious, I have uploaded several sample pages from my book. I also included my Condom Line, the line I say when I need to get the condom in a smooth way without ruining the moment.

Dave, Roosh is a skinny bitch, you should probably seek a forum with people who actually get results:

Everyone has a different routine but there are a lot of standard routines that if followed consistently will give great results.

Also, you’re 20, and you have a fast metabolism. You’ll probably need to eat way more than you think in order to get gains, and make sure it’s relatively healthy!

Great list.

I do disagree with: “13. You do dinner dates.”

I do them a little different than most:

Always sit at the bar, and always go appetizers or tapas.

Keep the booze flowing.

Sushi is also a great move with mad saki.

A G has got to eat.

Side benefit:

Locking down restaurants and bringing in lots of fly girls gets you pro-bono cocktails, discounted checks, the best slabs of Toro and reservations in a pinch.

Nah man dinner dates are for suckers. If you have to pay for dinner and alcohol to get laid you are doing it all wrong. The best of us can ask a girl out for coffee and will be banging her after a $5 cup of coffee during the daytime without any alcohol. If you can’t do that yet you have a lot to learn young one. Someday, with lots of practice, you might attain my level. Shit, I’ve banged girls I met in supermakets before who had their kids in the cart. Try that one if you think you’re good.

There’s nothing “G” about shelling out a bunch of cash for drinks and alcohol to get laid. The dead giveaway between a wannabe player and someone with real game is needing alcohol to seal the deal. Anyone can get laid after a girl has had a few drinks. Again, try my shit up above if you think you have game. Daytime, 1 PM coffee and pull some ass or daytime supermarket and pull some ass. If you can’t do that you aren’t shit.

Yeah, the neediness thing is tricky.

You have to be a Zen master (and hyper aware of your behavior), or just be getting sex from a lot of different places(the real solution), not to succumb to it.

Otherwise, the only girls that you probably wont seem needy to are the ones that you actually don’t like very much. And it isn’t very fun to be with them after a while, as your always wishing that you could be with a girl that you actually liked instead.

Nope you don’t have to be hyper aware or so busy with constant ass you forget to call to not come across needy. A person either IS needy or IS NOT needy. What you are talking about is faking it. I’m not a needy person so I don’t have to try at all not to be needy. It sounds like you have to try REALLY hard not to be needy. Well, good luck with that. You need to change yourself first then dealing with women becomes easy.

All you have to do is be really exciting during the times when you are with women and they will be thinking about you when you aren’t around. If you play the game right you can get women to call you first without you even having to do anything. I NEVER call women back until a few times in. And you know how many women call me back after dates 1, 2, 3? All of them. Why? Because I’m exciting to be with. I have a lot of life experience and great stories, I’m funny, decent looking (not model material or anything but above average I’d say) and I have the art of flipping women down to a science. Flipping a woman, which is what I call it, is the active practice of walking the fine line between acting like you don’t give a shit about them and acting like you are interested. Most halfway decent looking women are used to men falling all over them. If you know how to play the game you’ll have women uncomfortable around you because they aren’t getting the normal reaction from you they get from most guys. After you are there then you need to know when to take advantage of this. Most women subconciously like a challenge and if you act a little like you aren’t interested most of the time women will respond to this by trying to MAKE THEMSELVES appear more attractive to you, flipping. Then you need to play it cool and after a little while of this you can pounce and if you are good you could take her out to the car and fuck her right in the parking lot – I’ve done this.

You want to tell her stories that make not just here imagination go wild, but something that wild stimulate her “sexual imagination”. Why? Cause girls fantasize a lot (a lot more than guys).

The G Manifesto Said: “The other thing that helps is straight up not giving a f*ck and having having ice running through your veins.”

Haha…This brought a smile to my face. Its exactly where I feel like I’ve gotten to in the past couple of years, but I’m still not total ice yet, except for the average girl. But getting better with each passing day. It is much easier said than done, as Eazy-E mentioned, and it can’t be rationalized into, but must be constantly practiced.

I find that the trick is that you can’t jump into trying to be cold as ice with with the coolest/hottest girls at first, even if you could game them successfully, in a brief relationship, for a little bit. You need to practice, and gradually upgrade to hotter/cooler girls, each one testing and refining your further ability to be non-needy. You go through a progression of being all infatuated for a minute, you collect yourself, and then she eventually needs you more than you need her, and then your ice. Then your money with that level of female. Having generally good game and bedroom skills also helps with this process. Then, if you want, you then you move to the next level and start again. The result is better inner game for increasingly higher quality girls.

BTW, I can be total ice if the girl is cool, or hot, but not the other. Its the mix that is my kryptonite. In the interest of keeping it real, I’ll admit to increasing height, in combination with the total package, also a current challenge for my ego; me being a guy of very average height.

I dont worry about it, but still have to deal with comments like “I dont usually like short guys, but your different/etc…” Me: “You have no Idea”. lol…

You’re spot on except for the dinner dates one. Dinner dates can be hot, and a man willing to put in that extra effort to take you on a real date, especially if he can pull it off without becoming awkward and running out of things to say, is an automatic panty-dropper.

Dave,

You need to do high weight full body lifts. Squat and dead-lift a weight that you can only manage two sets of ten. Working the big muscles like that spikes your growth hormone and testosterone levels way up and everything grows. You should go hard enough that twice a week feels like plenty. You need days of recovery time between lifting. The huge guys who are in the gym almost every day have exceptional genetics.

Do not do high rep routines. You should be in and out of the gym in half an hour, having hammered out some squats or dead-lifts + bench press or shoulder press + pullups or rows + ab work.

Protein consumption is the other thing. Eat six eggs a day. I eat ’em all at once scrambled in lots of butter for breakfast. People generally don’t get enough protein, lifting or not. Cut out garbage like bread and pasta and cereal and eat eggs and pork chops and such.

My #1 is weak. I substitute with asshole game. Too much actually.

Dave, check out stronglifts.com . Overall calorie consumption is more important than protein consumption. Aim for at least a pound of meat a day, plus eggs, cheese, etc. The more you grow, the more you’ll need to continue growing. I got to 170 at 6’1″ on ~3000-3500 calories per day, from 145, but it’s no longer enough to continue growing.

“Dinner dates can be hot, and a man willing to put in that extra effort to take you on a real date, especially if he can pull it off without becoming awkward and running out of things to say, is an automatic panty-dropper.”

Translation: “I like the idea of a guy inviting me to dinner.” The logistics are terrible, and logistics is a dealbreaker. The smoother your transition to a bedroom, the less resistance she’ll put up. A dinner date could be salvaged by going for drinks at a bar afterwards, but then you could have gone to a bar in the first place.

> Eat every 3 hours starting at breakfast.
> Carbs for energy.

Both these points are quite wrong. This is why half of guys into bodybuilding look a bit puffy and tend to have too much fat. Their insulin levels are too high.

You want to eat two large meals a day and maybe one light one. DO NOT snack or eat lots of small meals. When you’re eating constantly you are continuously exposed to insulin and your body is always in fat storage mode. You burn NO body fat when you have serum insulin. When you eat proper meals and do not snack your insulin goes to zero for much of the day and you go into fat burning and tissue repair mode. You heal faster. Growth hormone levels rise. Your body gets very good at burning fat and you easily stay thin.

> Carbs for energy.

You have zero dietary need for sugar or carbohydrate, which spike insulin. Fat is a superior energy source. Any grain or sugar derived carbohydrate is just empty calories. Whatever carb you eat should simply be incidental intake from vegetables and fruit, which are eaten for anti-oxidants and other nutrients.

Two comments:

1. How do you differentiate between being too needy and not being persistent enough? I always thought the contradiction in game is you have to appear reserved and aloof, but doesn’t that mean you are not approaching?

2. I know that having good stories is important because ALL women love to be entertained, like we’re their court jesters or something. It just shows me that women are inherently uninteresting and need people to entertain them. Lots of women complain, “I’m bored!” You never hear a man say that. This being said, how do you improve storytelling abilities?

The problem with a “pull yourself by your bootstraps, life is unfair” speech is that it creates the rationale for going postal.

Let me explain. Let’s say a guy is unhappy with his life, and you tell him something that is not true based on his experiences.

He has two options..

1. Accept he is failure and keep on living.

2. Accept he won’t succeed and kill himself.

Now the problem with option 2. is that some might decide to take others with them. In a more primitive age, the damage that one guy could do was quite limited.

Not any longer… but that is not my problem.

re working out: theres no one size fits all, but i echo others in that should eat a lot and lots of protein. keep increasing weights any chance you get. but you dont have to sacrafice health by eating 6 eggs and what not. i eat only lean cuts of meat and have gained considerable muscle mass, six pack, etc. but if you aren’t health conscious to begin with, i suppose that is an easy way to get a lot of protein.

frankly i go by common sense. one egg is 60-120% of maximum reccommended daily intake of cholestrol per the FDA, depending on size. 6 would mean 360 to 720%. the american heart association also reccommends eating no more than one egg per day, and preferably replacing eggs with egg whites.

i dont have the time or inclination to search for clinical research. i use common sense. i eat an egg every now and then. you of course are free to eat 6 per day if you are comfortable with it. most americans are comfortable with their diets. no problem.

Nah, it’s not about sticking it to the man.

It’s about not sacrificing things you don’t need to.

That’s why people always fail on diets. They think they have to eat all “clean” food and be on top every little thing 100% of the time. It’s just ludicrous.

Everybody wants to blame the obesity problem on a certain food substance or food group. If I had a dime every time someone mentioned that refined carbs or high fructose corn syrup or trans fat CAUSES obesity I would be a man with A LOT of fucking dimes.

But the fact of the matter is people are fat because they EAT TOO MANY CALORIES. If something like HFCS was responsible for people being fat you’d think we’d have enough sense to ship a couple barrels of it to Africa so we’d be done with that pesky little issue of people starving to death.

no doubt the simple equation of too many calories= fat= unhealthy rings true for much of america, but i know plenty of cases close to my family where individuals died of heart problems and what not and they were not even close to fat.

genetics probably has a lot to do with it. i’ve heard that genetics is the most important factor when it comes to life expectancy and other health concerns, but just because one is not fat does not mean one is healthy, in my view, based upon experience and common sense.

if you’re putting lines of coke into your body daily, you’re probably not fat, but you’re probably not healthy either. extreme example, but we all draw the line somewhere. i don’t feel comfortable with an egg a day let alone six, but i do enjoy the occasional egg now and then. if it turns out six eggs a day does no harm or is even healthy, then i may even be missing out. but i do enjoy my diet as is even from a taste standpoint.

LOL jesus christ man. You are just full of bullshit aren’t you? A calorie is a calorie. It doesn’t matter what you eat as long as you eat the proper amount of it. You can only eat pasta all the time and you won’t get fast as long as you eat the proper amount. You seem like a guy who has information that is like 20 years old. Do you live in some backwards country that is out of date when it comes to science or what man? LOL carbs make you fat. Jesus. If I have to read that one more time from some idiot who doesn’t have the slightest idea about how our bodies operate I will probably punch myself in the face.

If you think I’m lying try it for your damn self. Eat 200 calories less than you do normally in a day but only eat pasta. So if you normally eat 2000 calories a day eat 1800 calories a day of only pasta. Do that for 1 month. You’ll lose anywhere from 1-10 lbs depending. Guaranteed.

Gary Taubes hasn’t debunked anything.

If he can produce a SINGLE study where calories (and protein) are rigorously controlled that shows eating more carbohydrates causes weight gain he should be given a Nobel prize.

Alas, he hasn’t. No one has. The best he can offer are poorly controlled studies where people self-report their calorie intake.

If carbohydrates really did subvert the simple laws of physics and cause obesity, white rice should be able to end world hunger. After all, as you mentioned one can be getting fatter (i.e. gaining weight) while in calorie DEFICIT.

Mr Roosh, I’ve been reading your blog and I found it interesting and hilarious at the same time. I think that all your pick-up advice only works for a certain type of women: young, shallow and stupid.
Most smart educated women I know could tell your so-called “game” right away and instantly will label you as a douchebag, hence non-touchable, no doubt.
I agree 100% with everything you said about Argentine women, because that’s where I was born and wasted the first 24 years of my life trying to figure out a way to get laid, in vain. Fortunately since I moved to the US my luck had changed completely, thanks to the more liberated nature of women over here.
All your advice about hitting on random women on a constant basis as the ONLY way to get laid I think is bullshit. That’s just your way and it works for you. I get laid with two different women every week on average and I have a large group of friends with benefit and casual fucks in constant rotation. I can’t remember when was the last time I tried to approach a woman at a bar or club. Maybe years. I never do that and I still get laid more than any other male that I know. How? Very simple, instead of being a player, I’m the playee, I make them come up to me, they take the initiative and that makes the matters a lot simpler to me because if the woman approaches you you don’t have to deal with rejection possibility and you have a guaranteed fuck right away, specially if she’s over 30.
I found than being passive, playing the prey instead of the hunter is a lot easier, less stress-inducing and way more rewarding. Granted, not all the women who approach me are hot, but they are so many that I get to screen them and select the ones who I want to do.
As you already know, that doesn’t happen in Argentina. Over there women don’t even give you the most minimum sign that they are interested in you, even if they are dying to kiss you. But here in the US, it works to perfection. I can walk to a bar all by myself, stand there and wait, eventually one will fall in the trap.
I have to clarify that I’m not a particularly good looking man, I’d say I have average looks, I keep myself in just decent shape and I happen to have an above average size penis. I used to do porn and even strip. Women among my social circle know this fact and the rumors of that kind run very fast.
Regardless, I still consider myself a proud beta male. Whenever I see macho alpha-males compulsively attacking girls like you describe in public places such as bars or clubs I feel sorry for them, they make me feel embarrassed for their ridiculous desperate behavior, I tend to think that they are desperately in denial of their gay side and try to fill that up with huge amounts of random quality-less pussy. I prefer to sit back, be cool, wait for them (all the ones who reject douchebags) to come to me and they always do. Your “game” doesn’t work for everybody.

Don Juan,

I find it a bit hard to believe that you can be an “average” looking man and have as many women approaching you as you claim. Women rarely even approach good looking guys, yet alone average ones. If you have come up with some methodology for pulling this off, then perhaps you ought to be selling books and get rich.

You forgot one:

Every time you get close enough to know a woman wants to sleep with you, you remember the cost of the last time you got laid. Because she was hot, it turned serious and then an indeterminate time later took half your belongings.

..just sayin 🙂

”””13. You do dinner dates.

They greatly decrease your chances of getting action. Not only does all that food impede the absorption of the wine (see number five), but you’re sitting far away from her, unable to touch. Do drink dates instead where you can sit right next to her as that alcohol takes hold
”””””””

Naaa dinner dates can be a sensual lead up to a night of sex. Don’t sit apart. Get a booth preferably for comfort of closeness. Eat out of her plate. Let her feed you. Let her lick the shit that fell off your fork onto your lap. Share a drink. Grab her around the neck and squeeze. Play with her hair. Kick back and let her serve you. Order for her. Let the waitstaff be in awe of your man skills that you get an american chick to treat you like a god at the table he he he

””””10 The G Manifesto
22 hours, 50 minutes ago
Chris,

“You have to be a Zen master (and hyper aware of your behavior), or just be getting sex from a lot of different places(the real solution), not to succumb to it.

Otherwise, the only girls that you probably wont seem needy to are the ones that you actually donâ��t like very much. And it isnâ��t very fun to be with them after a while, as your always wishing that you could be with a girl that you actually liked instead.”

Great comment.

The other thing that helps is straight up not giving a f*ck and having having ice running through your veins.

Like Eazy-E said “Easier said than done”.

– MPM

The G Manifesto’s last blog post: Hollywood Hills Burglar Bunch Arrested.

It comes down to being able to leave if your principles are compromised. But yea easier said than done.

You can bare your soul to a woman but when she plays some game yea got to be able to move on.

I tend to flip it like a switch. Even when it seems like I am into a woman so much and have some time invested I can still just stop talking to her and move on if she is not giving me the requisite deferrence.

Now if she comes back in submissive posture willing to adapt to you then yea she just passed another test on the rung to your inner circle as being a woman you can reason with.

Laura:

Dinner dates do absolutely nothing to up a guys chances, any more so than he would have doing anything else with her. Thats a fact. I’ve been charming as hell on dinner dates with women that normally would be pretty easy for me, and they have gone swimmingly, but I get laid much less when a formal date is involved. Dinner dates send the wrong message, and set the girl up to think of things in the long term. Therefore, she has the tendency to go into “lady” mode so as not to appear slutty. Big waste of money and time for me. Drinks are a much, much better date. If women want the long term thing, and the dinner dates that go along with that, they should try inviting guys to dinner first. Then, the guy would feel fine about paying for dinner in the future, because the woman is likely not dating him just to get a dinner out of it (very common). The guy will then calculate that there is much less of a chance that he is “buying” her with dinner, and that he is being used. He can then feel comfortable taking her on formal dates. The whole “panty dropping” thing that girls fantasize about, and that goes along with the “perfect dinner date”, is just a fantasy for girls, mostly idealized in their imaginations, but rarely practiced. And then lack of action is justified by finding faults with the guy, instead of analyzing the fact that the entire setup did very little to create real attraction, and probably even worked against it. They then keep fantasizing that when that “perfect” prince charming comes, to sweep them off of their feet with a romantic dinner, they will give it up after. It happens when attraction is already intense, but not when often when the date is designed to build attraction from scratch. But remember, I’m talking about first encounter/get to know you dates, and this doesn’t necessarily apply to people who have known each other or have been dating a while.

Don Juan:

I get what your saying. And I believe that your “game” is what you say that it is. But you left a lot out. I know. Women just don’t approach Betas who are waiting to trap them. Thats because betas most often go without in this country and that is every single betas lame strategy. And they don’t get laid, especially a lot, and usually only by the occasional lucky occurrence. A lot of what you said is good, like being the “prey”, but to do that in a way that is effective is a lot different than what you let on, and a lot different then the way betas practice it. Its actually a very alpha behavior when done right. Its not about being truly passive, but letting a girl no that you would dominate her sexually, but that you dont give a shit if that ever happens or not. You dont chase it, but you dont try and pretend that you are there for any other reason either, like to be her “friend”. Remember, not all Alphas are loud frat guys. Alphas can be anyone, and the best alpha game is when they are the prey, and make girls chase them. They will if they see you as a sexual threat and option, but one who also is cool enough not to be needy and one who is not actively chasing them.

No need to dis Roosh. I think a lot of what you do was self taught, which is great, but if you read deeper into a lot of what is said in the forums, in the comment sections, and in the articles you will find that a lot of it isn’t what you think from your superficial assessment. A lot of it has to do with the Alpha type “prey” game mentioned, although everyones game here is different. Roosh isnt Neil Strauss.

I like Pavels’ (of Kettel Bell fame) science of exercise, which is basically High intesity low volume lifting. “Super Slow” is another similar method. Low bulk, high strength, and a lot of fat burning is the result. Also, read “Natural Hormone (al?) Enhancement” by Rob Faigin. It will give you all you need to know about hormonal cycles and how eating affects them. Also, the workout portion is similar to pavel, with hormonal explanations as a bonus.

Is it just me or does anyone else get the feeling that the guys talking about “eating eggs and bodybuilding.com” don’t get laid that much….no offense….im sure im wrong with a few of you… getting girls is easy…look clean, smile, don’t give a fuck, tell jokes, don’t give a fuck, ask for #, don’t give a shit, call for date at bar, get tipsy with her, invite her back to your place, tell her no flirting allowed in your house, one more drink, go for kiss, bra strap, belt, kiss her neck and hips, take pics (they love the flash), repeat

LOL..hahaha…about the best summary I’ve ever read. Seriously.

Except some guys can get a bit chubby, or tend to be too skinny, with natural daily life, and I think the bodybuilding/ egg eating thing is a way to counteract that.
