I have to admit, I was very intrigued by thie title of this post. I did not know what to expect, but decided to have a Looksy.
First I found the material very well thought out, and while I expected it to be more manipulative, it isn't. Bravo to the OP.
Basically it just says a lot of things which on hindsight are common sense. Guys need to stop worshipping girls and putting them on pedestals, or they will always be in the " friend zone." let me elaborate just a bit. When a guy " Worships me" My creep factor goes off the wall. he is " too interested" for me to ever relax. On the other hand, i know that he is only talking to me because he is attracted to me. let's face it, if he weren't he'd be talking to that other girl over there..( darn the hussy..)
There is nothing wrong with allowing a girl to know you find her attractive, just do not obsess. If you try to deny it you just come across as deceptive.
And although you are a magician this isn't GOOD deception. The best way to communicate this IS by touching. it shows you see her as just a person...regardless of the fact that she is " built like the proverbial outhouse." She would rather you show an indifference to the idea of respectful bodilly contact...( notice the word respectful) than you show a compulsion to avoid it... that communicates insecure neediness, and creepiness.
As many more than likely know by now i am a born Again Christian, I only say that to state, that in my opinion what that other Christian had to say was kind of self righteous. The material as presented was religious-neutral as it was intended to be received.
I am also happilly married, and let me say if my husband had been afraid to touch or hold my hand on a first date, there may not have been a second. Don't paw her, but do not be afraid to " guide" or " hold " her. Magic IS a perfect opportunity to break the Physical touch barrier...
And yes, though you may think it won't work playful cuffing of the shoulder, or gaining of attention by tugging at the elbow, communicates confidence and fearlessness.
I applaud the poster that started this. I think guys need to stop worshipping women, and treating them more like equals. And this in that sense serves that purpose. Share your magic, who knows one day you may meet a girl even more attracted to magic than you imagine... we ARE out there after all
I just wanted to add one More thing. Guys, if you managed to get to your first date, i know a Lot of guys worry if she likes them. This is kind of ridiculous. Of course she likes you, if she did not like you, she would not be with you. She would more than likely be at home watching some video, or with someone else. If she is having dinner with you...relax, she already likes you. By over worrying all you do is shoot yourself in the foot.
