Approaching women

CRAVE ONLINE: Has anyone approached you with success stories thanks to your book?
Eric Rogell: All the time. A lot of guys tell me it’s gotten them over their fear of approaching women and they’ve finally gotten themselves a social life. One of my buddies read it after breaking up with a longtime girlfriend, who he thought was The One, and figured he’d never meet another. He ended up dating a half dozen women within two weeks. My nephew also begged me for a copy after failing to hook up at college, and texted me that he ended up with a rotating group of 15 girls. (My sister still isn’t talking to me.)
Women tell me success stories all the time, too. They picked up the book expecting to hate it as a how-to-get-over-on-women guide, but ended up learning how they’ve been repelling men out of knee jerk reaction to things they say. They’ve ended up playing the game themselves, and have met better guys because of it.

CRAVE ONLINE: When do you think a male evolves from horny pick up artist to genuine adult pursuer of women?

Eric Rogell: Most pick up artists would argue that they are genuine adult pursuers of women – and that the AFCs (the Average Frustrated Chumps), and especially the douche bags, are the ones who are giving seduction a bad name and need to evolve.

I personally think it happens when guys realize that you can get a lot more out of being an “attractive” guy and stop doing stupid shit like calling a chick a lesbian or getting belligerent and angry if she shoots you down. The evolved man doesn’t take it personally and realizes there are thousands of women out there, and you’re not going to succeed with every single one of them.

Proposal

Fil-Am wins in US reality TV dating game show ‘The Bachelor’.

A Filipino-American woman emerged as the winner of the 17th season of the US reality television dating game show “The Bachelor” when she won the heart of the man who was looking for a girlfriend.
An article on Asian Journal said 26-year-old half-Filipina Catherine Ligaya Mejia Giudici accepted the proposal of Sean Lowe, and bested 25 other girls for the way to his heart.Giudici is a graphic designer and blogger from Seattle, Washington.The article noted that she is the daughter of one of the trustees of the Filipino-American National Historical Society in Seattle, Cynthia Mejia-Giudici.

On the other hand, her father, Carey “Trip” Guidici, is a journalist of Scottish and Swiss-Italian descent who was also a former editor-in-chief of Northwest Asia Week.
An estimated 10 million viewers watched Giudici accept Lowe’s proposal before they climbed “atop an elephant under a Thailand sunset” during the “The Bachelor” two-hour season finale on Monday.

“I miss you every time we have to say goodbye. I don’t want to say goodbye anymore,” Texas insurance agent Lowe, 28, said during his proposal to Giudici.He also said he and Giudici plan to have a televised wedding though he said there is still no definite date for their wedding.
“A marriage follows a proposal. We don’t have a date yet but we have decided that it would be cool since our relationship started and cultivated on a TV show we’ll have our wedding on a TV show. ABC will cover the wedding,” Lowe said.
Entertainment site E! Online also came out with some trivia about Giudici in an article, noting that the “The Bachelor” winner is “not creative,” a writer aside from being a graphic designer; vegetarian, and athletic.
The story noted Giudici’s explanation on the claims that she is “not creative.

“Usually when someone claims to be creative, the term loses a bit of its value. I won’t say I am creative because that is for you to judge. But I will say that I like to create,” she said.Giudici also writes a weekly column for Seattleite.com called “Meatless Mondays,” in which she gives recommendations about restaurants that serve good vegan food.

Her being a vegetarian was already noted in the show, but the reason she chose the lifestyle was because of a trip to Kenya in Africa, where she ate “copious amounts of exotic—and not so exotic—meat on a trip to Kenya” that afterwards left her “craving anything and everything without a face.”Lastly, running more than nine miles is apparently no sweat for Giudici, who earlier this month ran the Seattle Hot Chocolate 15K in 1 hour, 36 minutes, and 16 seconds.
