    Hey guys,
    I haven’t checked on this forum for almost a year, being busy meeting new women, but now that I’m back, I want to share with you a very simple, yet effective method to gain more value and be seen as the prize in your date’s eyes

    Ben Franklin formed new relationships with people by asking them to do favors for him.The theory for this method is that cognitive dissonance occurs in the person’s brain.
    Why would they be doing something for you, unless they liked you?
    So a can be planted in a person’s mind, that you have a high worth, by simply asking them to do things for you

    I applied this principle countless times during my first dates, and it works EVERY SINGLE TIME!
    After I get a girl’s number, we swap a few messages, and we set up a date.Once everything’s set up, I follow up with this message:
    “Don’t forget to bring me something nice/sweet”

    They usually reply with either “ok” or “is chewing gum good enough?”

    This starts the date with an awesome topic for conversation,and it also gives you more value in her eyes.

    Try it out, and let me know what kind of reactions you get!


    If it works for you thats great but it seems unnecessary and kind of gimmicky. If her justification of “Why would they be doing something for you, unless they liked you?” is correct. Its already taking place. Why did she give you her phone number unless she liked you? Why is she meeting you for a date unless she liked you?


    Nice idea, thanks for sharing your experience, I may try it sometime
