The Coquette

 " An absence, the declining of an invitation to diner, an unintentionally unconscious harshness are of more service that all the cosmetics and fine     clothes in the world" –Marcel Proust


I can't believe how long it's been since I posted something about the book Art of Seduction.I'm almost done reading all the characters, and I'm ready to start phase 2 but like I promised I'm going to share with you the process of choosing my seductive character, so let's follow up with the next one, shall we? The Coquette.

The day I realized I was a girl in a man's world

Yeah I know. Is not a groundbreaking discovery but I was pretty sure it was something around 60-40 or 55-45 not 10-90! (Talking percentage here not sugar daddy request)

I should’ve known. I remember an episode once were I went to a party in a hotel room where everybody was causing a lot of trouble and my sober self decided to take action before getting kicked out, so of course I was shoving all the boys outside the room trying to get them in the elevator so we could leave. They wouldn’t listen. For a little close to an hour I tried and failed repeatedly, suddenly one of them comes all Rocky V from another door and promises me he’ll save the day. I told him that the kids were not going anywhere and that I’ve been trying for a good time to make them move. He then looks at me and states (very calm and clear)

Seduction tips for women: how to get a free beer

Requirements:* boobs

*Give a little smile
*Whip your hair front and back (preferably slow motion)
*Take a bet: Arm wrestle with a robot

Advice for men:

Stop saying things like “I’d never buy a drink for a girl!”. We all know you do, saying such things doesn’t mean you have integrity, game and/or confidence. It just means you’re broke and you’re using the cheapest line in the book! See…you can’t even afford a better excuse. Get over it! I'll have a Bud Light please! :)

Update on my seduction training

Someone has pointed out to me that I haven't chosen my seductive character yet, and it's been a while since I've posted anything about it.

I first wanted to say that I was very surprise about this person's words, just because I didn't even know I actually had "readers" mind you, so that was awesome!

and now to give you my main and only reason why I haven't bother to write my little seductive articles, well here it is

I have a life now...

p.s: I will continue my seductive adventures when my work doesn't take over my existence and I actually get a chance to socialze and put these skills into practice.

but thanks for caring! :)

Sex can sell in so many different ways!

Even typography!

Ciacomunicacíon in Barcelona decided to teach you a little spanish while selling you condoms at the same time (Durex).

Andale! Andale! Andale!

How does an Ad agency seduce new clients without looking all douchey and cocky?

Well in Denmark the solution is to share the love!

Don't you just hate it when your cocaine gets eaten by a self-cleaning toilet?

oh yes I knooow!!! we've all been there!! oh no? not you? ummm ok yeah me neither, just ya know...hypothetically.

This is ad is very old (from 3 years ago) but I just recently saw it and HAD to share!

Just by the mere fact that some psycho chicks DO actually sniff from toilets: Addiction, shame and infection! mmmm the lives of the rich and famous!!!

disclaimer: No! I don't do drugs. Never had, never will. Is just the Colombian in me that couldn't help to make a joke about it.

Wow! Seduction advice for men gone totally wrong!

Reading this article in Jezebel made me crack up!

Seriously where do the credentials of this psychoanalysits, self-help book authors come from? Wikipedia? I can't believe someone would actually recommend boys to avoid sending flowers to the office but instead send a note thanking your woman for cleaning after you, then again the guy who recommeneded such thing also wrote a book called "Guide to Getting it On!"    
'The Situation' is that you?

The Point System to get a woman!

  A little off track from our everyday seducers, just wanted to share this...after you've finally seduced a woman, here is the point system to actually keep her ;)

Example of The Natural Seducer

"'The Natural embodies the longed- for qualites of childhood - spontaneity, sincerty, unpretentiousness"

When I read this part of the book one image immediately came to my head that is the gorgeous Brazilian singer Ivete Sangalo.

When my sister first introduced me to her years ago right away I was fascinated with this woman. She is the most famous singer in Brazil, let’s say she’s the Beyonce of Brazil.

When she gets on stage is like you are being introduced to the real person. Is not the “”Sasha fierce” of Beyonce or the alter-ego of Shakira. Ivete is genuine, charming, talented and she’s not afraid of being silly and unconventional on stage: she smiles, she cries, she show off her legs, her butt. For me Ivete doesn’t put on a show…she IS the show! When I see her performing it seems real and that’s why many Brazilians feel so connected with her. They all feel like she is part of the family or maybe part of themselves.

Check this video of her last DVD concert (I AM SO EXCITED I’M GOING TO THE NEXT ONE IN MADISON SQUARE GARDEN!!!!!!) 

Jump to the 1:06 mark to see her in action…and props at the 4:28 mark for being able to whistle with a leather glove on! Haha…LOVE HER.

The Natural

Ah El Natural!

When I was 16 years old I took a trip around Europe with 15 girls, some of us knew each other from high school, and others were just meeting at the beginning of this trip. During this time I met a girl named Mariel, she was fun, outgoing, friendly and outspoken…very outspoken!

A Siren in The Water

I watch the movie Nine recently and fell in love with the spectacle of it. It reminded me of this specific Siren which I adore, and so when I saw this ad yesterday I was so happy, but then it made me wonder about something...

The Masculine Dandy in The Modern World

Samantha from Sex and The City...need to say more?

Women love her, praise her and want to be like her but realistically would they dare to act like her without caring what the rest would say? can they pull it off?

En Español Aquí/ In Spanish Here

The Feminine Dandy in The Modern World

well I think is obvious that not only do I connect with this character more but I also love this kind of seducer! 

 The Feminine Dandy is by far my favorite kind of men, I love
their handsome looks with a hint of delicacy and elegance. These men are by no means gay or feminine, they just have that Dandy trait in them that works well whether it is with their phyisical appearence, their speaking manners, or their stylish fashion sense. I can go on and on...and on.

The Dandy (Part II)

I think the dandy is not only the kind of seducer I’m most attracted to but the one that (so far) I connect with more. Besides the fact that I do like the “pretty boy” look and that I love a man who cares about what he is wearing, there’s also an important fact that is affecting men and women in this era that a Dandy can get away with.

Maybe it’s because homosexuality is such a big issue these days that has created really strong views on the opposite sides of the spectrum but the men of today are so afraid of being considered “gay” that they do the “manly man” things and are more concerned with what other men will think of them than what women actually want: If you take too much care of yourself "dude you're so gay!” so better to throw in a 10 yr old shirt with your everyday jeans, if you find elaborates ways to please your girlfriend “yo, stop acting like a little girl!” so better go for the easy catch: flowers, chocolates and the occasional restaurant. All of that makes men forget that ALL women have a hint of narcissism in them (ever wonder why we like to talk about ourselves so much?) so next time is best to consider that having feminine traits is not bad in any way.

Nonetheless there’s also the issue of social conventions. For a masculine dandy for example there's always the threat of other women’s envy; When you are a masculine dandy you get things your way without following the society rules, and this attracts the other sex, of course when you are the one getting all of the attention for being different (in an “masculine” way) other women make sure to destroy your reputation and publicly look down on you, this causing the men to rethink whether they want to be associated with you or not; Still all women secretly want that sense of freedom, individuality, and that attraction The Dandie creates in the opposite sex, but they can’t control the emotional connection and sense of awareness they have on the social conventions so they back down.

To become a Dandy all you have to do is not care.

Am I a Dandy? QUITE POSSIBLY! I definitely have connected with this character in many different ways not only more than any other seductive character but also with its very unique traits. However, unlike the dandy I am not completely careless about what others say (this is something Rudolph Valentino also struggled with) and my fashion-style is not very “unconventional” in fact even if I attract attention with my fashion style it is more for how 'trendy' it is not because it’s different, but I think those are things I can work on ;)

So In Conclusion? Like I said there are many different characters you can identified with so this is a very strong MAYBE for now.

The Dandy (Part I)

"The Dandy appeals to the narcissism of each sex: to a woman they are psychologically female, to a man they are male. Dandies fascinate and seduce in large numbers. Use the power of the Dandy to create an ambiguous, alluring presence that stirs repressed desire"

The Ideal Lover

"The Ideal Lover is rare in the modern world, for the role takes effort. You will have to focus intensely on the other person, fathom what she is missing, what he is disappointed by. People will often reveal this in subtle ways: through gesture, tone of voice, a look in the eye. By seeming to be what they lack, you will fit your ideal."
This seductive character is very similar to The Rake but with the difference is that it can apply to both sexes, and also is not so physically driven like The Rake, is more for the sake of passion and may I dare to say ego boost? Uuuuuhh!

A major requirement: Patience and attention to detail <- not for you? pass it!…there are plenty of other seductive characters to chose from. 
(A portrait of Giacomo Giovanni  Casanova)

The Romantic Ideal: in this corner we have….Casanova!

Oh yes the man that manage to live up to his reputation for centuries and centuries and somehow he is still is part of our lives, whether we know his full story or not we still have a sense of who he is. If you hear "he is such a Casanova" you'll immediately think of a player with great looks and captivating ways to attract women, am I right or am I right? How was he so unbelievable good at what he did? Well Mr. Casanova had a simple method: on meeting a woman he would
*Study her
*Go along with her mood
*Find out what was missing in her life and provide it!

And voila! The Italian Casanova made himself the ideal lover romancing the streets of Venice and even going as far as Paris for his conquest, but if you can't dance the mambo Italiano you might feel more at ease with

The Beauty Ideal: And baby it's a girl! Jeanne Poisson who later became Madame de Pompadour was the official mistress of Louis XV. Back in the day being the "official mistress" of the king of France was a privilege that wasn't given out to any random women on the streets of Paris, actually the funny thing was that to become the second women you'd have to be a noble blood, now isn't that kind of ironic? In any case a woman like Jeanne Poisson shouldn't even expect it for she was of middle class, but she mangae to conquer the kings heart, from the moment he met her to the day she died.

How did Madame de Pompadour manage to be so awesome? Well  she strategize from A to Z  & every letter in between. She would                  (Sophia Myels as Madame De Pompadour) 
*Set up the beginning stages: when the King was on his way to her chambers she make sure the hallways would always be warm and with a fresh captivating scent, she'll then continue with a

*Surprise: Madame de Pompadour loved beautiful object, her room was decorated with fine porcelain, Chinese fans and golden flower pots, also every time the king would come she would have a different- always elaborate- outfit, so every time the king would be eager to see what she'd be wearing next.

*She had something else for the aftermath: of course after the honeymoon period it's important to have something else to show. She would simply add fun conversations which the king always enjoy for she was smart, educated and knowledgeable, and when the conversation was about to go dull?

*Stroke his ego in a unique way: Since the King Louis V was living in the shadows of his successor Louis XIV, he rarely even bother to make an effort to be the best. He though he couldn't really become anything bigger so he spent his time hunting, sports and sex. Madame de Pompadour would give him a challenge like the building of a new castle which he had to take charge of everything from architecture to layout of the gardens, she would then add the theatre in Versailles where she will act every week for the king and increase his love for the arts.

Madame de Pompadour seems like she read a lot of cosmo articles and actually pay attention but not exactly. There's an inner person in everyone that's eager to come out. Everybody has an unrealized ideal wishing to be artists, thinkers, leaders, etc but reality happens and the turns of the world crush those ideals and they just settle. As a Beauty Ideal you have to bring this inner persona out of them in your own subtle way.

"Appeal to their better selves, to a higher standard of beauty, and they will hardly notice that they have been seduced. Make them feel elevated, lofty, spiritual, and your power over them will be limitless"

The keys of an ideal lovers is to observe you have to ignore your targets conscious behavior and not only focus on their words but focus more on the unconscious things: the tone of voice, what makes him/her blush, their looks. You have to be very attentive and know what each one of those gestures mean.

You also have to be very careful of staying in character never let a flaw be seen, always be the character you portray. When reality creeps in…is over.

Am I the Ideal lover? This seductive character doesn't seem so out of place, in fact so far is the most fitting. Though I find it rather challenging to read unconscious gestures and actually know what they mean I think that with time I can make it work, and make it work good!

So In Conclusion the Ideal lover maybe my seductive character. Let's see what else is out there.

En Español Aquí/ In Spanish Here

When is it sensual? sexual? or just slutty?

I am very aware that I am obviously NOT the target market for this ad (and I'm sure the real target market simply LOVES it) but I've got to agree with the Flight Attendants Association of Australia for being rightfully pissed at this Russian airline commercial. 

This is one of those visual portrays of women that make sensual and provocative seducing (without being looked down on) basically impossible. I've mentioned previously the downside of the seductive character The Siren, she will always struggle with not being solely objectify but also for never achieve the expectations of sexuality their predators are waiting for, so out of desperation what does she do? She gets surgery, makes a porn video and/or starts in a airline commercial in Russia. 

Now for some reason Russia has become the land where there's a thin line between "sex sells" and
"selling sex" so I'm kind of glad I don't live there, but viral views of this ad makes the whole seducing process much more difficult and mainly physical which is not the point. I'm not a feminist who wants to ban plastic surgery and naked women forever, in fact I think physical attributes can be very beneficial for any seductress in a given time, but this ad seems like a cheap- uncreative- shot to the whole idea of female beauty, is like these copywriters spent hours and hours of hard work getting high, playing videogames and when the deadline came in they got nothing "OH I GOT IT!" little Jimmy the copywriter screamed suddenly "sexy car wash BUT instead of a car, there's a...wait for it...PLANE!"
"YEAAAHHHHH!!" all the other men in the room screamed while they bang their chest together and high five each other in the air. 

This industry seems to move forward with the idea of including women in the workplace for their creative mind, but ads like these seem more like a step backwards. A woman like me will seem like a self-righteous feminist bitch for not approving this ad even though I am very much like every woman out there who loves wearing heels, shop like their rich and embrace tight dresses. We need more real seducers out there, people that will play the game with strategy, creativity and intelligent techniques not those who are looking for an easy way out.

Seduce the modern goldfish!

I've been reading a lot about Sally Hogshead lately, I came up with a presentation she made stating that we live in a 9 second a.d.d world. That's right! If you don't grab the attention of your pray in 9 seconds that person will probably skip you all over and find other things to worry about...for another 9 seconds, so what to do? change to the next best thing when things begin to look boring! a seducer is always ahead of the game just take a look at this ad and remember is not only women who get bored easily ;)

Who is this man and why can he easily persuade me to make my boyfriend smell like grandpa?

I know we have yet to meet all of our different kind of seducers, and I can't figure out what kind of seducer is the man in this ad but I had to share this with the world.

Brilliant advertising for Old Spice this is actually following a previous ad that became very successful so of course part II needed to happen. This is one of the sexiest men I've ever seen, I figure he is probably a rake kind of seducer with his sense of humor and his captivating abs smile voice!

Watch the commercial first and then check the next video for his explanation of the ad. Yum!

The Rake in The Modern World

A man who can read a woman’s mind and say, do, and act exactly the way she wants? That’s him! PLUS perfect connection with the advertising industry, the dude is a creative guy! C'est perfect!

*This video was added before Mel Gibson became a complete douchebag with his girlfriend, but I won't remove it or change it because I didn't add it because of him, I added because of the character he plays...that's The Rake!

The Rake


"Only Stars and the very wealthy can play the Rake with impunity; the rest of us need to be careful"

Now just as there is a character for every sexy young woman there is a character for every sexy young man. The Rake is the excitement every girl wants in her life, and the wing-man every man needs in theirs. 

First lest begin with  The Arden Rake
    *This man creates a sense of adventure, suspense and excitement to grab the attention of his girl. Every woman thrives for his attention while every man seeks to keep him away from their wives, daughters, and I dare to say even granny. 
    * He is charming, provocative, blunt, funny, eloquent and creative. 
 As the Ardent Rake you must not show any hesitation, let yourself go and be controlled by your animalistic instincts to get what you want, no matter the cost.

You could also become The Demonic Rake who would seduce women with not only his voice but his words, he studies in a matter of minutes the character and behavior of a person and with whatever information he gets he builts up a conversation, a speech, a word that will instantly hit this person on a personal level and make him desirable. 
   * You play with the emotions of a crowd to prepare what you are going to say; if the crowd wants change in their desperate lives you become Obama, if they want drama you become a real housewife, if they want rebellion you become Chavez (ugh! Don't even consider it hun!) They want you to become what they need not to solve their needs with who you are. 
  * Study your target market and don't only give them what they want, BECOME what they want and they will fall at your feet!

I think is obvious why I wouldn't choose to be a Rake: transsexual surgery is probably really expensive! Plus isn't this man the dude that we hate to love???? He who left us over analyzing over and over again why this awesome guy didn't want us! Or why is he with someone else??? How can he say all the rights things but yet do everything all wrong! WHYYY!!
I'm telling you Rake you will be loved and desired by every woman but avoided and hated at the end of the day.
Plus you might get in serious trouble if you try to play with fire in another man's land.

So in Conclusion? The Rake is NOT my seductive character <- see how I'm trying to pull a Maury here! Lol, love it!

Moving On…

Little off Track

But not exactly, this part of the blog is to post information or anecdotes that do not follow my book experiment. However, even though this is not intentionally connected with what I'm doing, I think its information that is important for any seducer, whether you are in the advertising industry or not this information is key when building up your seductive character and dealing with the outside world.

"Sally Hogshead is a speaker, author, and brand innovation consultant, helping companies develop messages that persuade and captivate. Clients past and present include Nike, MINI Cooper, Aflac, Cole Haan, Target, Coca-Cola and Godiva." this presentation is based on her book Fascination which covers the key factors to persuade whether it is with a product or with yourself.
Love her public speaking manner she is very friendly, energetic and engaging, and her topic is very relevant not only to today's world but to this specific blog as well.

Sally Hogshead: Speaking Reel from Sally Hogshead on Vimeo.

The Siren in the Modern World

For me the best example of The Siren is a famous Arabic singer in Lebanon called Haifa Wehbe. If you see her videos her body movements and facial expressions are very inviting and sensual (especially the way she looks at the camera) she dances very delicately as if her hips would brake if she shakes too much making her look very delicate (a sign of feminity) and classy but when she sings and when she speaks she seems very innocent and naïve, even if she is clearly not; it will take more than one video to really study this ultimate seducer but here’s one where I think you can see all the things I’m talking about.

(Skip to the 0:22 mark to see a Siren in action)

Siren in the Ad World

Of course what kind of ad aficionado would I be if I don't relate this to advertising: This ad I think represents not only what the modern Sex Siren would look and act like but also a product perfect for a Siren, What do you think?

Ok so besides the fact that this is all about physical beauty and nothing more than a good old "sex sells" there are many other reasons why The Siren would be attracted to this kind of product.

* First of all the brand Victoria Secret is all about using your physical attributes to get attention, whether it is with a push–up or with a 1 billion dollar bra cover in diamonds their main goal is to accentuate what you have and enhance what you lack to get what you want
* These women speak of lust, of sensuality, of femininity. 
* Plus hello animal prints! Can anything scream more uncontrollable passion, living for pleasure, heat of the moment than the wild? Exactly!

The Siren

I'm finally getting into the seductress process. I've been reading every character slowly and surely to make sure I find the perfect match with my personality, I will share with you the choosing process because I think it is essential for me to record every step and maybe find the flaw in case I failed in this little experiment. I also share it just because I'm cool like that!
First let's start with
The Siren

If it is a seductive power you are after, the siren is the most potent of all

Now as you may have heard me say before the art of seduction doesn't really have anything to do with looks, well umm yeahh I might have been wrong on that one.
Here we find The Spectacular Siren and The Sex Siren! These kinds of characters based its seduction mostly on its look. The Siren (so obviously a female character unless you feel a little bit zoolandish and want to enter the category of "merman") is a woman the uses the power of sensual attraction and the innocence that comes along with femininity to get what they want. These women don't exactly have to be beautiful but they use their best physical assets to seduce a crowd or more specifically a man.
The ladies that inspired this character are the lovely Cleopatra as The Spectacular Siren and the ultimate bombshell Marilyn Monroe as The Sex Siren. There's so many specific things these women did to attract the most powerful men and keep them eating from their hand. What I love about these women is the sense of female power, of the clear differentiation of sensuality vs sexuality (a thin line that in the world today is almost invisible) and how they were able to gain full control of everyone on their ways, even emperors!

"From Cleopatra we learn that it is not beauty that makes a Siren but rather a theatrical streak that allows a woman to embody a man's fantasies. A man grows bored with a woman, no matter how beautiful; he yearns for different pleasure, and for adventure. All a woman needs to turn this around is to create the illusion that she offers such variety and adventure" (The Siren, 9)

And as much as I would LOVE to become this amazing siren, I'm gonna have to say No Gracias!
First of all these women created stories, adventures with their looks; Cleopatra wore extravagant makeup to portrait a Greek Goddess, and she would do ridiculous things to her hair and clothing to always surprise the man that had it all: Mr. Julius Cesare, that took time and of course wealth.
Unfortunately I still don't have my own empire so becoming a one-woman show with my clothing is most definitely not happening any time soon.
One important factor of this character is that you have to create a mix of the little girl with the vixen. You have to become the representation of pure pleasure, an optical illusion of lust with a touch of innocence. This is also the reason why I did not chose this character. When you no longer have your physical attributes to create this image your seductive powers fade away, and you will be replace by another Siren in a matter of seconds. Why would I want that?
Plus these women also captivated the crowd with their voice. Every man that knew Cleopatra always mentioned the beauty of her voice, and hello -> "Happy Birthday Mr. President"! Anyone? When we "regular voiced" women try to pull that off we just sound ridiculous and off key, Marilyn Monroe sounds like a woman holding an orgasm.
This sense of innocence combined with sexyness is something I can't pull off. I have a very strong personality and the little girl's voice would just sound kinda creepy, plus constantly depending on my physical attributes to attract a crowd really wouldn't work in the advertising industry. I don't think singing "Happy birthday Mr. Creative director!" with my glittery dress would get me that much further in a man's world. Sure I'll get hired but God knows to what expense.

So in Conclusion? The Siren is NOT my seductive character.

What I didn’t know

Today I decided to re-read again the preface of The Art of Seduction. I didn't realize how many mistakes I was making just by making assumptions. I've read this book before but I guess I never really payed attention to it or just didn't focus enough.
Robert Green explains in his book that the act of seducing is mere psychological play. Is a slow process that cannot expect immediate results, and it includes not thinking about what you want but mostly what others want from you. The power of a seducer is not forceful but it requires tactics and is indirect (something I very much lack of) and is not suppose to impose nor have pretense, you not only have to know what you want but you have to know the rules of how to get it.
So before we continue with my little project I have to make sure we have some things clear about being a seducer. These are things I never really thought of before and I surely thought I was doing the right thing.
First being a seductress is all about playing games. As harsh as it sounds no morals or values should stop you from achieving your goal.
Second "a seducer does not turn power on and off" this is clearly one of the most common mistakes people would make, and is a mistake I was clearly expecting to follow. I actually thought of becoming someone else in the eyes of those I wanted to seduce and be whatever I am now to those I do not care for. Becoming a seducer is a complete transformation but you must be the same kind of seducer constantly.

"Seducers do not improvise; they do not leave this process to chance"

You also have to keep in mind that you CANNOT think about yourself when you are seducing. You should not be self-absorb but rather become whoever everybody else wants you to be. It doesn't mean telling lies it means transforming. Your reality must change and become completely giving. Greene states that "self-absorption is a sign of insecurity" and it is important that you are able to become what the other person wants you to be, that way they can be more open and you can get more information from them and use it to your advantage. 
 So like I said previously: first you must find what kind of seducer you are and then you must know your target inside-out, with this you will combine the perfect factors to become the ultimate seducer. I'm about to try the first step, read and choose what kind of seductress I am, this sounds like is going to be a lot of work...and a whole lotta fun!

Introduction to the Art

The book by Robert Greene "The Art of Seduction" is divided in four parts: The seductive character, the seductive process, the precipice- deepening the effect through extreme Measure, and Moving into the kill! This should be easy to follow, it almost feels like a dating class in writing, it shows step by step everything you have to do. So I'll start of course by understanding what kind of seductive character I am. As I've previously mentioned I have read this book before and while I was reading it I realized that there were more than one character I could relate too which is ok, according to Robert Greene you can have traits of different kinds of seducers; however it is essential that you find the most suitable and stick to it! So since I'm on the loop with this one I think I'm going to study in depht every seductive character that I can relate to, and in that way find which one I work best with. Oh yes! This entire project my take a long while!

I want to also add something that is essential for you to know about this project. 

Seducing is nothing sexual in any way. To learn to seduce is not to teach you tips to catch the perfect man on the bar, I'll suggest Sex and the City: collector edition if that's what you really want to do! This book teaches you seducing skills to stand out from the crowd, to persuade a crowd! To become a leader and to bring out a sense of confidence and self-respect from within you, of course none of this is guaranteed in any part of the book, but in my opinion it should be ramifications of your success. It doesn't have to be to the opposite sex, nor does it have to be someone you are interesting in, this is for everybody and anybody. So I recommended to whoever wants to improve their seducing skills, even if you are already married, with kids and a mortgage. This is good for all, trust me!

I should also add that if I do succeed in this I won't be giving credit to my looks and neither should you, just as Greene states in his book this is about the character within you that attracts people to you, you do not have to be the best looking person to achieve the best results. Is all about your inner self, your character, so do not get beauty involve in this, is out of the field!

Do I have someone in mind I'm trying to seduce? You bet! I have more than one. I won't reveal their name or anything that can hint their identity. I really want this to work well and revealing such things is just sabotaging my work from the beginning. Of course there will be random people I'll be testing these theories on. If all this goes well I shall reveal their identity at the end of my theories, and will provide the reason why I chose them; but for now they shall all be ghosts!

The Beginning of Something Good

Ok so here is the thing. For the longest time I've been slowly trying to get this blogs up and working. I always start with a good idea but found it difficult to stay committed to it. I realized that my blog entries have been #1) too damn long and #2) all about me. As much I love the idea of having the capability of just focus on myself, I found it rather difficult to share it with everyone, especially when it's about my traveling adventures.
With that said I must add however that I miss writing. I've had a loyal fan base with my collective emails sharing my crazy stories, my friends and family are very supportive, which makes me actually enjoy writing, but I've left it behind for quite sometime now for silly reasons.
ok I've made it clear that I want to write more and more, not just because I like it but because it'll do me some good. However, I really want to stop writing things with no meaning. So I've decided to take on a little project, which I'll call The Art of Testing the Art of Seduction.
So I chose a book "The Art of Seduction"" cause I read it before and I really wanted to take into practice, however I've found it difficult to find the time to actually study my actions, but this time is research amigo!

I want to test the theories of the book and see if it works. The reason why?? Here comes my favorite part! Numbering things!

#1) I lack a hobby! Seriously I don't even collect anything!
#2) is great practice for me specially because I want to succeed in the advertising business, and what is advertising without great seducing skills?
#3) I'll put to the test a best-seller! I'm sure it works; just don't know if it does for me. So I'll also be testing my skills in creativity, organization, commitment and of course seduction.
#4) it just really sounds like fun!
So here we go! And yes I know that I should consider a more clever title than "The Art of Testing the Art of Seduction" shame on me since I want to be on the creative business, right? But that's really my last focus. The research should be creative enough. Let's get this rolling!!
