Self Depricating Humor and TinglesPosted: July 9, 2012
I was chatting with a girl and I mentioned about having hypertension (no, I have NO CLUE how we got there) and she looked at me strangely and asked, “You have high blood pressure?”
I LIVE for moments like this. I had her. I nodded and she asked, “Wait, like…how old are you? Because you look too young to have high blood pressure.” I told her my age and she asked if I were too young to have hypertension. I shook my head no and said, “Actually….it’s uh, wow this is embarrassing. It’s secondary to my penis size.” Lol. She looked at me confused and said, “I don’t get it.” I answered her, “My penis is really big; so when I get aroused it causes excess strain to my heart.” Lol.
She leaned forward with a surprised look on her face, “Seriously?”
I looked her dead in the eyes, stone-faced and replied, “No, absolutely not.”
She erupted into a fit of giggling. And I continued, “Seriously, I could fuck a Cheerio and not break it, it’s really pathetic.” Then I smiled.
Most guys would NEVER use self-deprecation while chatting up a woman. I use it all the time. Now I wasn’t even trying to close her or get a number. I was just having fun. It’s take a TON of confidence to make fun of yourself while talking to a woman. But it has to be genuinely unbelievable. I’ll give another example.
Whenever a woman asks about my cooking she’ll usually ask how long I’ve been cooking for. I always answer, “Since I was able to see over the stove.” She’ll ask, “Well, how old was that?”
“About 6 years ago.” It ALWAYS gets a laugh. Forget you’re poking fun at yourself, it makes for flirty banter. And it shows a woman you don’t take yourself too seriously. Most guys would view being short as a major disadvantage to attracting a woman. By me making fun of it, it shows TONS of confidence. That builds a comfortable repoire AND gives her tingles. Of course don’t overdo it. When I do this she’ll usually initiate some kino and I can visibly tell she’s enjoying the encounter.
Try it and see. Just find any way to make mention of having a huge mule. But the key is the delivery. You have to act embarrassed by the fact that you’re admitting to it. In fact you’re baiting her by saying you don’t want to tell her is perfect. Then…..if she doesn’t pepper spray you, she’ll usually ask if it’s really true. This part is crucial. Look her dead in the eye with a slight look of shame then break character and reply, “No, Dear God no.” then smile and laugh lightly. IF she doesn’t think it’s funny, she’s too uptight, but I’ve never had a woman not giggle. Sexual banter is fine, but when you do it in a self-deprecating manner, it’s a bait and switch for her.
