Way of Attraction

Certain personalities have greater effect on a character’s style and the way they move about life. We call this the way of attraction. Including his style, the characters use it in conjunction to their core personalities. I noticed the Way of Attraction when I was trying to decipher what made men stylish.

As I wrote down notes on the way clothes fit on the body, I realized at a salsa conference that there was something else that MADE people more attractive. This both extends beyond style as well as coordinates with it.

Being difficult to describe in words or on a blog post, I call it the “way of attraction.” It is the combination of a person’s appearance and the way they move through life that gives them this vibe and energy. Some examples that come to mind:

The way Ari Gold wipes his fingers across his mouth before he says something important, the way he adjusts his suit jacket, the way he moves his hands while he talks all signify dominance, and the power suit further enhances this message. The cell phone, his watch and his tie are his props. Even when the character Ari Gold is being dominated by others, he still holds a strong frame whether he is wrong or not.

Let’s take different example. The character Dr. House is a medical genius. He’s dominant, but in a weird, unconventional way. His cane and his medicine are his props. He likes to challenge the system and is bit quirky despite his intelligence. Read more

Personality Stereotypes
  • Marina Barbies are usually pretty nice if you have a general sense of style and they consider you somewhat around their class. By class I mean social class
  • They have a healthy, sometimes inflated sense of entitlement, generally naive and nice because people always treated them well as beautiful little girls and daddy’s little girls
  • High maintenance, wine and dine dating style. Rumor has it that some Marina girls are taken care of by older, rich San Francisco old money who pays for their expensive apartments and quality of life
  • Most Marina girls don’t work, or work in easy jobs like a receptionist, a retail store girl or other “eye candy” occupations that leverage her looks
  • Marina girls love dogs and puppies, yoga, fruit smoothies, walking, jogging, pilates, high end nail saloons and shopping at high end fashion brand stores
  • Considers extravagant waste and leisure an art form
How To Game
  • Get past the class discrimination with upscale, classy fashion sense. Proximity and logistics to close by Marina apartments helps. Game should be pretty tight although Marina girls are generally pretty nice rejecting guys because of their experience with it over the years.
  • Her disqualifying criteria will mostly be based on class and lifestyle (i.e. she’s not going to talk to a bum) so if you can get past this then it is standard pickup game.
  • For the hottest 9s and 10s, you will have to find a way to deal with AMOG Marina Frat/Jock guys and their social circle guy friends. Most of these guys are good looking but have limited game. However their physical presence can be intimidating and they are most often found in large groups. Barks louder than they bite.

  • Big bitch glasses are common during summer
  • Jamba Juice makes lots of money here
  • Common dogs: labradors, poodles, pugs and tinkerbell (Paris Hilton)
  • “It is like LA in SF”
  • Asian girl hater: “Fucking Marina barbies and moms. They never worked a day in their life. Here they are with their tight ass yoga shorts showing off their asses. It’s not like they go to Yoga anyway. Does she have some other skills other than fucking her sugar daddy for a living?”
  • Marina girls are generally more educated than LA actor girls. Usually with a post-bachelor graduates from the east coast and major cities and comes from a wealthy family
  • You’ll find the occasional Asian girl mixed in with the white blondes. She’s usually one of the hotter Asian girls but acts like a Twinkie (Yellow on the outside, white on the inside)
