By Edit Posted in Culture, News-ish

Richard La Ruina knows how to pick up women. He knows how to do it so well that he runs Pick Up Artist training and travels around the world giving seminars to guys on how to meet women. Richard won’t show you how to be a player. He will show you how to start conversations, set up dates using online websites like Match.com and how to properly text/talk on the phone with women. Even if you think you know it all, there’s a good chance Richard will be able to teach you a thing or two.  Richard’s new book called The Natural: How to Effortlessly Attract the Women You Want comes out Feb 7th and is a more positive, less sleazy and more effective take on THE GAME by Neil Strauss.

Richard was nice enough to guest write a blog to show all you single guys out there how to go about finding a girl before Valentine’s Day. On February 6th, please join us as Richard will be giving a live video seminar on COED, should be interesting.

5 Ways a Single Guy Can Land a Last Minute Valentine’s Day Date: People holding hands, couples everywhere, romance in the air…it’s sickening! Being single on Valentine’s Day sucks…unless you are banging loads of chicks, in which case it’s pretty cool – just tell them you are out of town so you dodge the dinners and presents ;-) …but assuming you would like a nice romantic night with a hottie, here’s how:

5: Hit The Streets!

If you want to get a date, the logical place to go is a bar or club, but think different. The streets are filled with beautiful women, and lots of them are going to be single and lonely. A “day game” approach is a lot more romantic and they’ll be much more receptive if they are single leading up to V day. Just approach with a casual request for directions, or if you are feeling bold, approach with a compliment, “I saw you and just had to come and tell you…you are absolutely stunning…my name’s Richard”.

4: Hit The Bar/Club

Lonely single girls + alcohol = winning. One problem – lots of guys with the same idea! This means you need to stand out. Do this by being the sociable guy: talk to the bartender, talk to groups, and generally work the room. When you then come to those hot girls you had your eye on, it just seems like you are being sociable – their guards are down and you are in. Want to know if they are single? Just ask them what they are doing on Valentine’s Day. Tell them you were thinking of doing x,y,z, ask the single one if she thinks it sounds good, and when she says yes, say “cool what time should I pick you up? Around 8?”

3: Use Your Social Circle

You have friends (you do have friends right??), they are normal (still with me?), and they will know single girls. Try and get an introduction, drinks in a bar, something casual. Most relationships happen through social circles. Use yours. Alternatively, remember that most casual sex happens with strangers. Take your best buddy and his girlfriend and make them come to a club with you. Use them as your base and get them to help you get chicks. She can talk to girls for you, they can tell the girl what a nice guy you are while you are in the restroom. If nothing else you won’t have to be alone in the club.

2: Dive Into Your Little Black Book

The girl from two years ago that you never managed to get on a date? The girl whose number you got but then you went on vacation? If you talk to girls now and then, chances are you have a bunch of these numbers. Let’s do some bulk texting! Send out something like “Hey, long time…have you been kidnapped? Are you okay? I hope they are feeding you…I’ll rescue you and bring chocolate…white, milk, or dark?” It’s guaranteed to get a response in 90% of desperate lonely girls close to V day.

1: Don’t Bother

Valentine’s Day isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. It’s expensive, tough to get tables in restaurants, and girls expect too much. Just wait. Just a few days. Girls will still be feeling bad that they were single on Valentine’s Day, and will be even more lonely = easy. Use the strategies above in the days after Valentine’s and they are just as likely, if not more likely, to work like crazy. Good luck, guys.
