Melbourne, Aug 25 (ANI): Finding hard to land a date? Well, Sydney writer Sam de Brito’s new book, ‘Building a Better Bloke’ might just help.
Brito has admitted that he has had his share of dud dates – partly because his past approach to dating involved getting drunk.
But now, he has made a few adjustments when it comes to luring the opposite sex. And he has urged other Aussie men to do the same in his new book.
“I’m not trying to teach men how to be a pick-up artist or a stud, I want to show men how to build self-esteem, build a life for themselves – which in turn will attract women,” the Courier Mail quoted Brito, as saying.
According to the 39-year-old, his generation has lost the art of communicating with women.
“Aussie guys have fallen through the cracks. We like to think of Australian men as bold and confident and a lot of them aren’t,” he said.
He said that for some, the biggest fear in life is approaching and striking up a conversation with a woman.
In this case, he has suggested practice and a sense of humour is the key.
The catchphrase of his book is: “Find a life and you’ll find love”.
“The biggest thing is not to look cool, but to have a life with lots of interests. Become involved in your life, look after yourself, and you’re primed to meet someone,” he said.
He said that good manners and keeping clean are also important.
“Be a gentleman. Respect yourself. Even if you’re funny and charming, you’re not going to get far with a woman if you smell,” he said.
Besides clean sheets and clean fingernails, ‘Building a Better Bloke’ also reminds men of the simple things, like holding a door open for women.
De Brito’s 10 tips for lure woman:
Don’t abuse alcohol or drugs
Have a job that means something to you
Be busy with your own activities
Be well groomed and clean
Have a sense of humour
Talk to women as individuals, not as a gender
Be a gentleman
Don’t mix with loser friends
Have a clean bedroom, clean sheets – and a lamp to create romantic lighting (ANI)
