Neil Strauss Explains the C vs. U Shaped Smile Routine
C and U Shaped Smile Pics by Neil Strauss
I came across a blog by Neil Strauss about his routine C vs. U shaped smiles. I chose to re post it here because I believe that a lot of people are confused as to what is meant by c and u shaped smile.
Over all I would be skeptical to use this routine. If its a girl you’ll never see again, then fuck it, go for it… but if its a girl in your social scene who gets hit on a lot then you run the risk of exposing yourself as someone who uses canned lines.
I think a smarter idea is to understand the theory of why this works and create your own routines in a similar manner. One of the most common questions I’ve gotten about the book came out is, “Will you go for coffee with me if I promise not to ask you too much about pickup?”
The second most common question is,”What the fuck is a C-shaped smile?”
They’re referring to a routine I came upwith, which Papa used to help land Paris Hilton’s phone number in The Game.
The shape refers not to the lips or mouth but to the teeth.
A C-shaped smile is one in which someone’s row of upper teeth are shaped like a C. It’s a wide smile, with many teeth showing in the front.
This is the classic smile you see on thecover of People magazine. It’s said to beperceived as a friendlier, warmer smile.
Britney Spears has one:
Now a U-shaped smile is one in which just two or three teeth are seen in the front, then the teeth run straight back. It’s somewhat reminiscent of a horse’s mouth.
It’s said to be perceived as unfriendly.
No offense to anyone who has a U-shaped smile,because I think the theory is horseshit and say so when I present it.
However, many celebrities it turns out have had their teeth actually reshaped surgicallyto a C. One of them I even wrote a book with.
Christina Aguilera didn’t have that surgery. She has classic U-Shaped Smile where the teeth show mostly along the sides of the mouth rather than in the front (She also has a better voicethan Britney Spears, so there is some consolation):
Hope you’re happy now…
