6 Ways To Repel The Ladies

By

Sometimes, those "brilliant" pickup moves don't go as planned.

Most of the time, our content here at YourTango is about moving things in the right direction, and celebrating the positive. This time around, I'd like to focus on the negative. Perhaps you can use this as a cautionary tale.

In the world of picking up and bedding lots of luscious ladies, a technique called peacocking is often employed. In much the same way that a male peacock uses his colorful (some say engorged) plumage to attract a mate, a young fellow can wear an article of clothing in order to attract the eyeballs and interest of a young lady. Unfortunately, most of the time, such attempts at attraction somehow reverse polarity and land a guy firmly on a team I like to call The Unf*ckables. Which attempts at eye-catching plumage should you avoid? Are You Seduced By Inner Game?

1) Absurd facial hair. A goofy 'stache is a sure way to get turned down if you're extending an invitation for a mustache ride. See these gentlemen below.

2) Lame t-shirts. I get it. Your face is manly and your crank is legendary because of its size and utility. That thwack we hear is the nation's underwear hitting the floor. But a trucker hat emblazoned with "Amateur Gynecologist" probably won't give you much of a chance to show off your bedside manner. Let Bruce McCulloch explain.

3) Eating lots and lots. In college, I once ate seven 8-ounce cuts of prime rib on a gentleman's wager. My body was radiating red meat heat for days. Being able to slam 100 wings in one sitting is impressive, but also a lady force field; something about sweating Buffalo sauce is just gross. Watch these bros and try NOT to get turned on.
