Physically backing away from a girl, slowly, while happily chatting her up is an unholy mindfuck that pays pickup dividends later. Pretty girls expect men/betas to be eager to get near them. Signaling that you aren’t eager for nearness cues girls that you aren’t like the typical beta male desperate for female intimacy, which in turn prompts girls to seek your validation.
Of course, you have to establish nearness at some point, but physical intimacy is far more powerful an effect on women when it’s wrested from you, or when it takes its sweet time announcing its presence.
This may sound like it contradicts the established Game principle of kino and rapid physical escalation during a seduction, but the details of execution matter. Your Physical Retreat (PR) is tactical in nature, and operates in concert with kino escalation. Example: You chat up a girl, unassumingly place a light touch on her forearm, remove your hand, stand up, continue talking but in a more animated matter as you begin moving slowly, almost imperceptibly, your whole body away from the girl. Then, reach for something behind her, say your drink on the bar, and exploit that gap-closing motion to reintroduce your physical proximity.
Repeat a few times as her attraction builds, and she’s ready to be swept into a comforting, deeper conversation in a quiet spot.
This is seduction psy ops that hits the female id square in the sternum. She can’t get a bead on you… do you like her, don’t like her, what’s your deal? why does she feel this weird impulse to seek your approval all of a sudden?… and when a girl can’t figure you out, all she wants to do is…. figure you out. Driven by her compulsion to pigeonhole your rank in the sexual market relative to hers, she is apt to play right into your frame, and you will have all the hand. Hand is critical to seducing women. Without jerkboy hand, you are just another chafed hand on the fap ledger of incel life.
A reader adds,
Brutal! Another mindfuck is to look at a spot just next to his (her) ear & watch as he tries to lean into your gaze.
Yes, that is another unholy mindfuck. Works on sociopaths and queen bees too (they never expect it because their narcissism levels are off the charts). So much of seduction – the sexual and the social kinds – is the art of structuring a dominance-submission hierarchy that raises one’s value and does so (it has to be said) at the expense of lowering the other’s value. That is the nature of goal-oriented communication (which is all communication, when you think about it).
I should mention the importance of incongruence to the PR tactic. You aren’t physically retreating from the girl in a state of bewilderment or butthurtness; you are backing off with a smile on your face and a happy upbeat tune to your words. This disjunction between body language and facial/verbal expression is what sets the female id aflame. There are contexts within the seduction process when a little incongruence adds rather than subtracts from a girl’s perception of your mate value.
