Friend: You absolutely come off as sexually promiscuous with your attitude, outfits, abundance of guy friends, yet you're pretty much a virgin at this point. It has been forever since you've been with a guy. You're tense as fuck and it's time to get laid KK.
Me: Ummm...I've been trying to learn from my past and not get w/ an asshole again. Thanks. It has been a struggle, but I think I deserve some props!
Other Friend: Absolutely not! The guys that are good for you show that they're interested, but you chalk them off because you think they're simply joking with you. Your low self-esteem and self-consciousness is doing you in. And for some reason, you always n ...

There is a routine that I go through prior to heading out for the night. The night starts by picking either a target rich venue or any venue I know will have 10âs (as many venues have none). I call or text my friends to join me along with my wings and pivots. I decide which wings and which pivots to take according to the venue that Iâm going to and what my goals are for the night. My routine to get ready to club includes putting on my contacts, taking a shower, shaving, putting gel in my hair, brushing my teeth, spraying deodorant, putting on cologne, and picking out my clothes that are appropriate for the venue. Now Iâm ready for a full night.rnrnOptimize your time by picking the right venue and going on the best nights of the week. You should ha ...
Now your target is in your seduction location, like your house or apartment. Keep your apartment clean with no clutter. When I say clean, I mean girl clean, not guy clean. Your dishes should be washed. Laundry should be stored away. Your floors, walls, corners, windows, counters, sinks, fridge, garage, closet should all be clean and organized. Your toilet should be clean with no rings. Your bed should be made. Your bathroom should have extra toilet paper, towels, and toothbrushes. Leave your window shades open so that she will feel safer inside your place being able to see the outside. rnrnHave interesting things to see and do in your apartment like photo books, magazines, videogames, artwork, etc. Continue the conversation and continue making a connec ...
You should only use a backhanded compliment on your target(s). The point of a backhanded compliment is to lower your targetâs value and/or to calibrate her. I would not use a backhanded compliment (i.e., bust on someone) just to do it. In a social interaction, when you are trying to attract a girl to you and her perceived value is higher than yours, only then will you use a backhanded compliment/indicator of disinterest and then demonstrate high value about yourself. Donât use backhanded compliments without good reason. Do it for the specific purpose of lowering your targets perceived value. That is the only reason you should use backhanded compliments.rnrnAn important point to make about backhanded complime ...
After you see a set, you have five seconds to approach. This gives you enough time to think of your opener and approach. The 5-second rule is in place to prevent you from hovering or over thinking the situation. Donât think about it, just do it. Thatâs the whole point of the 5-second rule. If you are sitting there with this internal dialogue, then you will be hovering and creeping girls outâŚeven if itâs only for a moment. Any internal dialogue, frame control, hypnosis, confidence programming, and reasoning should be happening before you go in-field. Once you are in-field, youâve made the decision already to jump out of the plane and just do it. If you are opening 12 or more sets a night for 4 or more nights a week, you will have less and less ...

I recently got into a debate with my boyfriend about true love. He couldn't fathom why I don't believe "Romeo and Juliet" is the ultimate love story. Before you jump on his bandwagon, hear me out.rnrnHow much could two young teenagers really know about true love in just a few months? I would reconsider my position if Romeo and Juliet went past the "honeymoon stage" - dealt with bills, rent and chores. If they fought over who left the dirty dishes in the sink or whose turn it was to clean out the litter-box and were still crazy about each other, then I would gladly pull out of the debate. But the truth is, they didn't. Finding love, like they did, is ...
Guys talk about Asian men on the dating scene. rnDo they exist? rnAnd if so, how do they play?rnrnFour single Asian men gave up one evening to talk about the status of the Asian male in the dating scene. It was a night of high-fives, stories, jokes and introspection. To say that they found definitive answers would be to say they found the answer to the meaning of life. But we would like to think that what was said will take you a few steps closer to enlightenment on this persistent topic. aMagazine sat in on the conversation, moderated by Jim Cho, and brings you a version that is fit for print.rnrnMORRIS, 31, FILIPINO rnFashion production designerrnrnMorris is open-minded when it come ...
So what exactly is going through a womanâs head right before a first date? God knows if she has time to formulate thoughts, while she is wreaking havoc in her room, tearing up her closet to find the perfect outfit. After all, she is spring cleaningâon speed. rnrnWhat to wear? What shoes go with this outfit? Does this purse clash with my shoes? Does this watch clash with my purse?rnrnAnd then thereâs perfumeâthe icing on the cake. rnrnPicking which perfume to top off the fabulous outfit is like playing darts. Her one chance to finish off her opponent and of course sheâd want to hit the bullâs eye. rnrnThrough this seemingly strenuous ordeal, women often expect the best to come out of a date, especially the first date. No woman wants to sacrifice time ...
Being at my prime age of 25, I've been through the trials and tribulations of the dating scene. Surprisingly I've experienced and observed many effective and non effective methods of approaching the opposite sex. Many of my guy friends constantly ask me, "What is the proper way to approach a woman? On second thought, what is the proper way to approach an Asian woman? They always seem so turned off by our approach, so we give up!"rnrnThe past year I've been out a lot in the bar and club scene. I don't go out there with the intention of finding a date, but I am shocked to see the way guys go up and approach girls. I've seen everything from guys using cheesy pick up lines like "I must be in heaven cuz I've seen an angel." ...
How long have you two been together?ârn(Fill in the blank) years/months/days.rnâHow did you two meet?ârnâWe met online.ârnrnIn my 23 years, I have only had the privilege to encounter several couples that have met online. One was a friend of mine, and I thought nothing of it, since I too had been a participant in that online social game. Far be it from me, a relationship-challenged female, to strike any judgment upon their unified happiness. Yet, for others, it was an inherent novelty although I could see the unorthodoxy in it. Undoubtedly, there is always a hesitant stall for time followed by a knowing smile when people tell of the location of their first tangents in their planar existence. To say that there is a negative stigma attached ...
What if you could experience the advantages of Online dating without the lacking of personal and physical contact? If you combine the variety of choices that are available to you at a bar or club, without having to squander yourself aimlessly through the disappointments and turn downs that are so often experienced in such âsingleâ environments. What if the location was hip, the people diverse, and the atmosphere fun, energetic and relaxed? rnrnIf these are some of the questions that you often ask yourself while living through the day to day life of being single, than you should ask no further since the answer is only a âclickâ away.

Weâve all felt it before, the frustrations of dating and the difficulties in meeting the right kinds of people. Where once we would have relied on clubs, bars or gatherings, we now find those to be boring and tedious with no new challenges or excitements. Why should there be? How can you not tire of the same old lines, approaches, rejections and failures. Whatâs the point, when every guy you meet is a jerk and every girl you approach is a psycho. For those of you who are driven to find that perfect person and enjoy the variety of potential choices that you can have, going online is the only way to fly.rnrnNot to say that by making this choice, everything will perfectly fall into place. Of course there are both positives and negatives in loggin ...

The six men on stage included a poet, a break dancer and a filmmaker. They pounded rhythms on the dhol drum, modeled fresh fashions, slathered whipped cream on bare skin and discussed their passion for community service.
This is the "Mr. Hyphen" contest, a faux pageant in the San Francisco Bay area aimed at redefining the image of Asian-American men beyond nerdy, sexless stereotypes.
Conspicuously absent from the stage were computer experts, doctors, lawyers or dry cleaners. There were, however, martial arts with a twist.
Pahole Sookkasikon, an American-born graduate student partial to drawing, cooking, and "flirting for free drinks at the bar," knew that h ...

I'm also leading the initiative for PREMIUM DATING COACH - stay tuned for the details as this will be something the Asian community has never seen before.
WASHINGTON - Having sons is important to many Asian cultures, and now American families from those groups seem to be asserting the same preference. A new analysis of the 2000 Census shows that among U.S. born children of Chinese, Korean and Asian Indian parents the odds of having a boy increase if the family already has a girl or two.
The findings "suggest that in a sub-population with a traditional son preference, the technologies are being used to generate male births when preceding births are female," co-authors Douglas Almond and Lena Edlund said of their findings, appearing in Tuesday's edition of Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
"We should emphasize that our paper does not imply that sex selection is practiced by ...
This Letter was fwded from one of my good friends James of the Hip Hop group Far East Movement. I'm completely outraged that something like this can go overlooked. This was the first time I'd heard of the incident. Americans as a whole were outraged when one of our own was caned for vandalizing cars in Thailand, and our our own Police Officers GUN DOWN an Asian American for vandalism and the story is relatively unheard of?! We all need to show our support so that this story is heard. I'm still shocked by it.

ATLANTA (Reuters) - Asian American voters fear the discrimination some faced at polling stations in 2006 could resurface as they cast ballots in November's presidential election, a civil rights group said on Thursday.
Laws that enable Asian Americans from countries including China, Korea, Vietnam and the Philippines to get language and other kinds of assistance with voting were often flouted at the 2006 mid-term congressional elections, according to the Asian American Legal Defense and Education Fund.
The group cited examples of Asian Americans being asked to provide more identification than other citizens, in contravention of federal law. Those not on voter rolls but still eligible to vote were often not given provisional ballots to complete, it said in a report.

Fifty people attend a vigil at Montrose Harbor, where a Vietnamese fisherman drowned within seconds after being shoved into the water
By Emma Graves Fitzsimmons Tribune staff reporter
September 9, 2007
Authorities aren't calling the drowning of a Vietnamese fisherman a hate crime, but members of the Asian-American community who gathered at a vigil on Saturday said they believe he was targeted because of his race.
"There were a lot of people out at the harbor early that morning from different backgrounds. Why did the alleged perpetrator pick on those individuals?" said Ben Lumicao, an adviser on the city's Commission on Human Relations. "Everyone in the Asian-American community had the same reaction: That could have bee ...

SAN FRANCISCO - Noisy, crowded and scented by the fresh herbs and dried mushrooms sold from open-air produce stands, Chinatown can seem old-fashioned to a generation hooked on iPods, cell phones and YouTube.
Yet Chinese-American teens in San Francisco have a complicated relationship with the biggest of the nation's many Chinatowns.
They might laugh at the sight of a tourist looking for bargains among the plastic Buddhas and elderly shoppers picking through bins of flopping fish, but they also see Chinatown as home whether they live in its densely packed blocks or visit regularly from the suburbs.
"Universally, kids will seek a place of comfort," says Ben Wong, director of the Chinato ...

Asians see discrimination in US immigration reforms

Asians wary of immigration reforms
ASIANS may not account for the large majority of illegal immigrants in the United States but are in the forefront of protests of what they see as increasingly discriminatory moves to regulate immigration.
In recent days, dozens of Asian groups joined mammoth Hispanic-led protests from California to the grounds of Capitol Hill demanding better treatment for immigrants amid plans for a draconian crackdown on illegal immigration.

TAIPEI (AFP) - Taiwanese filmmaker Ang Lee's Oscar success was a triumph for Asia, but it will not make it any easier for the region's directors trying to make it in Hollywood, industry experts say.
Taiwan-born Lee became the first Asian to walk away with the coveted best director statuette for the gay cowboy story "Brokeback Mountain" at the weekend but film commentators said his success had little to do with where he was born.
"Ang Lee is not seen as a Chinese director. He's seen as a director good at dealing with human drama," Hong Hong critic Gary Pollard said, noting that Lee has made other non-Chinese films like "Ice ...
