Here’s a cool article from the guys at Pickup Arts. Also just want to give a shout out to Magic Bullets. I am hearing nothing but good things about the book. I feel bad because I bashed it from a friends opinion…
Get Girls by Jay ValensÂ
It is no secret that rich and successful guys enjoy an advantagewith women. If I could write some easy to follow advice that wouldmake you successful and rich in a few weeks, I would do that, but I personally don’t know how to do that consistently.
If I did know though, that still wouldn’t be the best advice I
could give you about having success with women, because money can
be lost whereas skills are something you take with you. And
luckily there are consistent ways to get better with women very
quickly, like studying our “Art of the Pickup” DVDs.
However, it is still instructive to study some things that make
people consistently successful. And where better to start looking
for success than Harvard University.
Now, I happen to have some experience in this regard.
No, I didn’t go to Harvard university myself. But I did have a
friend who did get his M.B.A. at Harvard, and I got to learn some
things vicariously though him.
One thing I learned was that ironically a lot of these guys at
Harvard were just like a lot of other guys in that they usually
didn’t know any more than the average guy about getting women. Jay
Valens and I once captivated about 10 of these Harvard M.B.A.
students over a steak dinner by talking to them about our area of
expertise with women. They were listening more intently than I bet
they did for any of their business strategy sessions, it was a
One thing the average Harvard guy did know though was a thing
called “droping the H-Bomb”.
Now I don’t think that most of them did it correctly, since they
probably made it too transparent. But put simply, “droping the
H-Bomb” is when you mention something in a conversation with a
woman that lets her know you are going to Harvard. Get it,
“H”-Bomb, “H”arvard, they both start with the letter “H”?
OK, sounds like an obvious thing to do if indeed you are going to
Harvard. After all, that is a clear signal of intelligence and
future success. You might be thinking, “But Ray, what am I going
to do, lie to her and tell her I go to Harvard?”
No, of course not.
But you can learn an important lesson here, namely that everyone
has some thing that sets them apart from others, things that are
valuable about them. And what you need to learn how to do is to
make that known to a woman you are interested in, but in a way that
is not detectable as bragging.
Let’s look again at how the Harvard students should have gone about
dropping their H-Bombs.
Wrong: “Yeah, it’s been a tough week of classes for me at Harvard…”
This doesn’t work because she knows the guy is more interested in
telling her about the fact he goes to Harvard than that he had a
tough week. It’s too contrived and transparent.
Here is a better example:
Harvard guy: “so what do you do, are you a student or do you work?”
Her: Tells him whatever she does. “How about you?”
Harvard guy: “I’m in business school, I have another year to go.”
Her: “oh really, where are you getting your M.B.A.?”
Harvard guy: “I go to Harvard. But enough about what we do, lets
talk about who we are…”
Notice that he just asks her a question that is naturally
reciprocated, so it never looks like he was trying to brag. Also,
when he answers her first question, he doesn’t immediately
volunteer that he goes to Harvard. This leads of course to her
asking where, and when finally does say “Harvard”, he doesn’t dwell
on it, and moves into more intimate conversation. The fact that he
moves on quickly from that answer also proves that he isn’t trying
to brag. But still, the H-Bomb has been dropped which was his plan
all along, and this way it explodes with full force!
So the key for you is to realize what your H-Bombs are and think of
how to get women to ask you questions that make you tell them.
Are you an awesome guitar player? Or maybe a killer cook? Ask her
what her hobbies are, she will ask you back at some point what your
hobbies are, and you can bring up that you like to play guitar, or
that you love cooking.
If you are a good storyteller, you can probably also weave your own
H-Bombs into your stories, but you have to know what you are doing
so that it won’t be seen as bragging. If you are just starting
out, stick with asking her questions that she is likely to ask back
OK, to summarize, first figure out what your own H-Bombs might be.
If you don’t have any, you better get some! Then, think of
questions to ask women in normal conversation that will get them to
ask you the same question in return, and then drop your H-Bomb and
quickly move on to a new topic. Also, as you get better, learn how
to incorporate your H-Bombs indirectly into your own stories.

to do it right), and other nuclear powered techniques, check out
