Applying the art of war to dating
It has had an influence on Eastern and Western military thinking, business tactics, legal strategy and beyond.
One moment pretend to want them, the next pretend to not want them. Feed off your conquests for food, money, and most importantly, for access to more women. But in the event you’re flying solo, you’ll want to remove your target from the situation. The bitchier and meaner she gets, the nicer they get, so she won’t leave them. If she demands, in a nasty and demeaning way, that you’d better call her more often, call less. And all you’ve lost is a demanding, overbearing bitch. As a rule, most women are constantly hitting us with Shit Tests, little negative comments or bitchy attitude they give us to see how we react.And honestly, that’s not always going to be possible. Or if she orders you to come over right now, tell her you’re busy and will come by later. And like in Situation 4, if we reward this bad behavior, we become nothing more than a Moodle.By dissecting Sun Tzu's original text, extracting his core wisdom, and applying it to picking up women, this book teaches you how to win the battle of the sexes.A woman might not be an enemy to conquer--but she is a prize to win over.Today, I have an interview with Eric Rogell, author of The Art of War for Dating: Master Sun Tzu’s Tactics to Win Over Women. About as close as you can get and not need to have a 4-star general on speed dial to give you launch codes when you get her into bed. Poets, songwriters, artists, and writers, all have been equating the two for centuries. even subconsciously we’ve always known war and dating are just about the same thing. Many of the Nine Situations involve things going sideways …
Eric’s going to discuss how the Sun Tzu’s tactics for winning war can help you get more dates, more sex, and more respect from women. Think everything from “All’s fair in love and war,” to “The battle of the sexes,” to “Love is a Battlefield.” Both involve capturing something the other is protecting. obstacles and problems you’ll encounter while you’re with a target.
I explain each of them, and give you tactics for salvaging your operation. And this is where Nice Guys get themselves blown to bits every time.
For instance, in the case of a Grenade — this is a friend of your target, who, for whatever reason (and I get into them in the book), is out to make sure she blows up your chances — or with a drunk or jealous Alpha male, the best play is to have a solid Wingman keep them occupied. It’s also the reason so many hot women treat men like lap dogs: Because Nice Guys have been rewarding their poor treatment forever. She’ll just be sleeping with the guy who cuts your lawn. This is one of the hardest things for a lot of guys to get: When she’s being a bitch, you have to treat her accordingly. Finally, another of the Situations is Situation 8: Shooting Down Her Objections.
