A Lesson In Storytelling

This post reminded me of a girl I went out with a few years ago. In response to an online opener I sent her, she wrote me a truly remarkable story that I’ve yet to see be duplicated by any girl.  The way she wrote it was, simply put, the perfect way you should tell a story to any prospective girl you want to get.  She made me want to go out with her regardless of her looks (to a point of course, and nonetheless she was still cute).

I opened her with something about where she would take me on a trip and what we would do. While my opener was — if I may say so myself — quite creative and witty, her response completely knocked it out of the park.  It was very impressive on two fronts. First, the effort she put in was remarkable given it was an online interaction. Second, look at the details and the way she puts you in the environment and gives you an actual feel of what is going on. This is what you should incorporate in your dates as that ROK article I link above states.  Most girls eat it up when you can relate a story that well.


Below is the girl’s response to my opener. To put it in context, I mentioned she looked like she was drinking and I was stuck at work so she would have to plan the trip, and my profile says I travel a lot:

First off, I’m not buzzed, because I know the trick of drinking a Gatorade to subside the alcohol.

Next, my bags are already packed, and so were yours. I was going to kidnap you and take you out of town before your work got canceled because I have amazing vision (my father is an ophthalmologist) and I can drive us anywhere. And fast, nonetheless, because I’ve seen the autobahn and the actual BMW and Mercedes plants in Germany where the cars are manufactured, so I have experience racing. I also planned to drive so you could do the work in the car if you did have to work, and if you get carsick, I brought medicine to fix that. (However, I respect you working long hours because my career will make me do the same. So if you completely object, I would just bring you dinner for the long nights of which you’d be working).

But since I found out that you ruined the spontaneous plans, instead of getting mad, I’m thrilled. This means I can cancel our four-day trip to Vegas, and do something different. I picked Vegas initially because I knew it may be tough to pull you away from work, and only Vegas, bikinis, hot dresses and gambling would be the bait to lure you away from your office.

So, instead, I let you have some Vegas adventure, and we drive to Vegas just Thursday night. We gamble, I wear my hot dress that makes you happy I’m your girlfriend and not someone else’s, I cross my fingers so you win big, then we go back to the hotel and have…. well that will have to wait for the actual thing because words wont be able to describe… and I’m classy in emails.

Then in the morning, we’re off, because now I get to pick somewhere where we both will have an amazing time…the Southwest special flight to Colorado. Here your great vision can indulge the picturesque Rocky Mountains, because you probably haven’t been because you’re from the Big Apple, and the only tall picturesque monuments are the spectacular Skyscrapers.

Of course I will let you sit next to the window because you’ve never had the experience of flying over the 14 footers and I want you to see them. Once we arrive, I will have already arranged for a limo to pick us up and drive us to Vail, which is only two hours away, thus allowing us a long stay in Colorado.

Since you’re so adventurous, we will walk around Vail Village and see the authentic stores, but not go inside because we hate shopping. We will probably meet foreigners because so many come to work there, so it’ll be like you’re in one of the countries of which you’ve visited.

Then we will take the chair lift up the top of the mountain (this time of year the snow is melted and we can see the Spring blooming flowers and have a better view of the mountains). As we’re going up, I’m holding your hand because I’m scared and you’re telling me we’re going to be ok (or visa versa, but because I like you, I let you think I’m the one that’s afraid… and we never tell your friends you were).

Once we are at the top, we have a fabulous lunch, wine and we take pictures of us at the Many Mile High mark. We may have some fun of our own before we go down, though.

Once we come down, we find a fun bike path to bike around. We don’t do too many hills because we’re stuffed from lunch. But we both could because my pictures are accurate and I’m in good shape. Or if you don’t like biking, we take a hike around. We could even do the Alpine Slide if you want. After, we go back and get ready for dinner. You’ve picked out my outfit before we left so its whatever you’ve chosen. After dinner, we go back to the Jacuzzi at our hotel. The rest of the night is like the previous, amazing but the description must wait until the actual night.

The next day we decide to take that limo to Golden, where we get a tour of the Coors Brewery. This was accomplished only because I had connections, because they no longer do any tours. After visiting Golden, and sampling the top brews, we go to Denver, where we get to watch the Lakers defeat the Nuggets. We stay at the Four Seasons because I have connections again, so we save money because we both work hard.

Then we wake up early Sunday morning, have brunch, and if you’re allergic to anything, I make sure brunch doesn’t have it in the ingredients. Then we pack our bags and head back to ***. We have dinner at *** before going back to the apartment. You wake up for work on Monday with a smile and having experienced commercialized fun and natural fun. When you get to work, you open your briefcase and there’s something I’ve left inside to get you excited to come home early……the newest season of Law and Order. Then you lift it up with pure joy and find something else, that may create a distraction from Law and Order. A travel guide for our next trip. Then you lift that up and there’s something soft and somewhat…. inappropriate for work. So you come home early to get it out of your office and I show you how it’s used. Then you tell me I’m the best girlfriend ever. The end. Smile


Notice how she plays to a man’s ideal woman (sex, bringing dinner, staying fit). If a female’s ability to captivate a man’s logic-based imagination works, as it did here on me, think of the flip side. Girls are seated in emotion; if you can take them on a journey with your words by telling them a powerful story, you are way ahead of the curve.

  1. Also another side note about storytelling…forget about trying to elicit a certain reaction from a girl. Any reaction is a good reaction. So tell some stories that have scary properties.
    Anger, disgust, fear…remember these emotions can be just as good as euphoria to women.

    1. Agreed. Sometimes I’m not even slightly upset and I feign disgust and resentment just to have her feel angry, sad, whatever. Make that emotion flow.

  2. Have an immense command of language and then the integrity to act on those words and few women will be able to withstand the assailment.
    Being noticed is all it takes.

  3. Man, you can say that again! The art of seduction boils down to making them burn with desire for you, with what you paint on the canvas of their own mind.

  4. to those who state that americans live in a classless society, i would submit the following retort:
    there is only ONE class in the US, and that is the lowest class. wealth or education don’t affect this standing.
    before you reject this fact, consider the fact that a trip to las vegas is considered the ultimate travel destination for americans. vulgarians indeed.
    spend a fortnight anywhere in western europe and the sheer power of the culture shall overwhelm you. but why should one “do europe,” in the parlance of the uncouth teenage american backpacker, when one can witness la grande culture of las vegas or minneapolis!

    1. Having spent considerable time in Europe, I would say their being “cultured” is overplayed.
      They drink, go to clubs, watch t.v,eat fast-food, and love to shop at H&M.
      Europe certainly has beautiful architecture everywhere you turn, as well as a rich cultural history, but the amount of people sipping wine in the french country-side or visiting art museums is low.

      1. This is true, and something that I had to see for myself once I got over there several years ago.

      2. utter nonsense. in america, people are utterly obsessed with TV and sports. there is nothing else. visit salzburg during the festspiele, london during the proms, paris during christmas, ANY village or city market (copenhagen and vienna are among the best), etc. now find me anything remotely comparable in your vile country.

        1. There are as many local/regional festivals in America as there are towns in Europe. Besides which, most of America actually despises Hollywood. You do not know America worth spit, or you decided that local/regional festivals were too low-class for you, either way, you didn’t experience the country.

    2. Smells like a lot of Romantic–not romantic–bullshit. That’s okay if refined is your game, but that’s not me.
      I’m too busy working and making shit happen to worry about being “cultured” or care what fuckhead Europhiles–no offense–think what class I’m in.

        1. I’m happy with my sparse apartment, healthy savings account, and banging stupid women every weekend. Why should I care if some random Internet fuckhead thinks I’m low class?

      1. one such as yourself should be encouraged to leap into the nearest river whilst wrapped in a steel boa. and that right soon!

  5. It’s a depressing sign of the times that I’d be somewhat leery of a girl who put in this much effort in appealing to me online. Nowadays the girls that seem the coolest are just the best at hiding their problems, perhaps because they are great practitioners of girl game.
    If this girl is authentic and beautiful, she is a rare find indeed.

      1. Seeing is believing right?
        To the girl who wrote this, send pics, body dimensions, recipes you are going to cook me, and maybe I will take your digits (Only because I don’t want to hint I may be in love all over again lol).

    1. This story illustrates the hamster at work.
      Storytelling. It’s why women lust for weddings but chafe at marriage. Romance novel versus reality.
      Women tell themselves wondrous fairy tales: “It just happened,” “he’s just a friend,” “it doesn’t count”, “I’m amazing, and strong, and independent,””I couldn’t help it,” “I was swept off my feet,” …
      This writeup is simply female lying practice put to paper. Practice. It’s how the female is able to convince the pre-marriage beta male that she has dismounted from the carousel, saintly and pure, and this time she’s really in love. Because she “would never do that,” “oral is not sex.” Etc., etc.
      Storytelling. It’s how a woman can brutally murder a man then rationalize it as protecting herself from an abusive man (see Jodi Arias).
      Storytelling. It’s how fat is full-figured, a spinster is strong, and a masculinized amazon is radiantly amazing.

        Nah, seriously, can you imagine the c & p action with this kind of bait?
        Im a sucker…

    2. exactly right. usually the one’s who were witty were fat and developed some kind of language skills to compensate their lack of looks/action in the relationship/fuck department
      best girls i’ve met were not all that bright, or verbose but definitely compassionate, caring and hot as hell. usually coffee barista’s [almost exclusively eastern europe and who hadnt settled for long], au pairs or primary school teachers [the best type of woman can usually be found in this profession]
      i cant find it [link it up here if you can] but there was a roosh article on how as the intellectual of the profession the woman goes up her femininity and beauty invariably goes down
      edit: here we go http://www.rooshv.com/the-relationship-between-femininity-education

  6. Stories? Yes. But this girl sounds too much like the type that expects life to be a DeBeers commercial. Un-sus-tain’-able! Consider a different story – the one about a red flag. Haha!

  7. I’d hardly be wowed by this. I as many have wrote would be leery of a girl like this and that goes double online. Online dating is such crap that when some ones nice you wonder how many other guys she’s nice too. I don’t even understand what you’re trying to point out with this story. This wasn’t a great story she wrote and she didn’t play to the medium. The story should have been more of a intro paragraph not a short essay reply.

  8. In Terms of the flip-side of this (storytelling to girls) I’d recommend the book “The Sexual Key” by J.D. Fuentes.
    It deals in depicting emotional experience and uses covert hypnosis to make women feel the feelings you describe.
    In my experience I haven’t had the same degree of success the book boasts it can provide, but it has been a valuable add on to my game and gives me that edge.
