Men’s Fitness magazine has been slammed after publishing a guide on how men can turn a “no” into a “yes” when trying to pick up women.
The article was written under the guise of providing dating tips for men by self-styled ‘dating and attraction expert’ Nick Savoy, who apparently sees nothing wrong with telling men that receiving a “no” can still be a green light.
Savoy isolates four broad locations where a “no” can become a “yes”: the bar, the bedroom, on a date and in a relationship. Basically, everywhere you could find yourself when spending time with a man you’re dating.
Savoy writes that if a woman isn’t “into you”, you can try a few different approaches such as:
- “Plow ahead anyway.”
- “Deal with it the same way you would any other test – heighten it to absurdity and make a joke of it.”
He says that one of his clients who approached a “Victoria Secret’s Model” remained persistent after she kept “brushing him off” until she finally relented and was “picked up”.
