Are human beings superior to animals? We certainly seem to think so, but when it comes to pickup this might not be the case. If you need to upgrade your pickup game then it seems like looking at the Casanovas of the animal kingdom might be the best way to go.
Here are 9 lessons from some alpha males:
Peacock: Dress To Impress
The peacock’s flamboyant tail is one of the most iconic traits of sexual selection from the entire animal kingdom.
Sexual selection is the evolutionary traits that animals develop to be more sexually attractive to the opposite sex. Although in the human world being flamboyant is normally left to the women, in the animal kingdom it is the exact opposite.
The peacock is the most iconic representation of this as the males are awesomely decorated, with bold and bright feathers on their tails. Female peacock is dull and basic in comparison.
Take a lesson in fashion from the peacock. In the wild, being flamboyant and attractive is a sign that the animal is fit and health, and is, therefore, better to mate with as he has the most successful genes. Show the women around you that you are a good pick by upping your fashion game.
Male Orchid Bees: Smell Good
For the male orchid bee smelling good is essential in pulling a honey (pun intended!)
Female orchid bees are naturally drawn to the best and boldest smelling males, making these guys the best pick for mating. Smelling good is just as important for humans in attracting the opposite sex too – why else would the perfume industry be so popular and thriving worldwide?
If you want to be successful in dating then make sure that you stay on top of your personal hygiene. Take time to shower, shave, groom and in picking out the right aftershave before you go out hunting.
Cuttlefish: The Art of Approach
One of the worst things a single man has to experience when hunting is being unable to approach the girl they’ve got they eye on because she’s surrounded by other guys. The cuttlefish has perfected the art of standing out and they always make sure that they can get past any competition.
In order to sneak past the groups of men surround a potential mate, the cuttlefish is actually able to transform into a female – think of it like cross-dressing – so he can wade past the men and get closer to the woman without looking like a threat. Once he gets closer to the woman he is able to reveal his true self to her as a potential mate.
So what can us mere humans learn from the cuttlefish? Well, we’re certainly not suggesting that you take up cross-dressing unless of course, you know a woman who’s into that sort of thing!
We do suggest approaching your girl under the radar. A subtle approach is a surefire way to lower her instant defense guard, as you’ll come across less threatening as less likely to be only interested in ‘one thing’ (even if that is what you’re interested in).
Red-Capped Manakin: Ask Her To Dance
Dancing is one of the oldest pickup tricks in the book, in both humans and animals. If you have two left feet then worry not; you need to look no further than the red-capped manakin. This little bird will be able to teach you the rhythmic art of seduction that will have any woman falling to her knees.
The red-capped manakin uses his dancing prowess to woo the ladies and prove his worthiness as a mate. Even our greatest dancers, like Michael Jackson, have got nothing on this little red-headed champion!
But why exactly is dancing such an important thing for you to learn? Apparently, women can learn a lot from how well a man performs in bed based on the skills he shows on the dancefloor. If you want to give your woman the best impression then you better get practicing your steps.
Golden Lion Tamarin: Being Good With Your Hands
The golden lion tamarin is one animal who knows how important physical touch is when getting a girl. This little guy is incredibly skilled with his paws and uses his awesome grooming skills to deflea his woman and fill her with loveable feelings.
This monkey can teach you some valuable skills in the art of the kinesthetic touch (KINO) for seduction. For both species, us and them, the power of KINO can be essential in sealing the deal and getting that first kiss.
Physical touch is an awesome seductive tool that will give you the best idea about how your woman feels about you and whether she wants to further things. Test your girl’s willingness to get physical by holding her hand, throwing your arm over her shoulders and stroking her hair. These are all subtle but effective KINO moves that can lead to the first kiss and whatever else may follow.
Failure to bring in physical contact into your bonding can give the wrong impression and may put you in the friend zone. So gently get physical with your girl to make the distinction. Bonus points for any guy who is good at giving massages – the golden lion tamarin would be proud of you!
White-Fronted Parrot: How Not To Kiss
Picture the scene; you’ve taken the advice from our animal brothers in the wild and you’ve wooed your girl. Your KINO skills have escalated the mood and now you’re leaning in for your first kiss.
No matter how well you’ve done up until this point, the first kiss is normally where most guys choke. In the sense of the white-fronted parrot, that all important first kiss can lead to more than choking! These animals are one of the only creatures who gets involved in the intimate act of kissing and this poor little guy is so excited by that fact that he ends up puking down the beak of his girl. Pretty gross, right?
It makes us think of that particularly embarrassing scene from South Park…
If you think the time is right to kiss her, then you should go ahead and kiss her. You need to be able to trust your moves and your seduction skills and you will know when the time is right.
Just try to not think of the poor white-fronted parrot when you getting into the act!
Seahorses: Playing The Dating Game
So you’ve wooed the girl, you’ve sealed your first kiss and the time has come to take her out.
Take the same approach as the seahorse, who like to take things slow and go on multiple dates before making things official with fornication. Seahorse couples will meet every day at the crack of dawn to perform an adorable mating dance together. It’s a pretty sweet move and an effective one too.
Dates are a great tool for us homo sapiens to use too. Taking a girl out can give you the opportunity to learn more about her, what she wants and further your seduction. Providing you don’t get too ahead of yourself and mess it up, most dates ultimately end is something sexual.
If you want to speed things along but still want to build trust and connection with your girl, then you can try instant dating. How do you instant date? It’s pretty simple really.
Say you’ve connected with a girl in a bar, ask her to come with you to another one so you can get to know each other better. The more locations you manage to go together, the greater her trust and comfort towards you will be. As the pickup bible, The Game claims, by taking her to multiple venues you’ll create a sense of ‘distorted time’ making you feel as though you have known each other forever.
She’ll feel super close you with this move and is likely to want to get even closer.
Blue Jays: Wining and Dining
The first date should always be a casual, non-threatening event. You’re both still strangers at this point after all.
For a first date you want to keep things chill, or you’ll end up feeling too awkward to get any kind of connection going and they’ll be no further movement.
The blue jay knows exactly how important it is to treat women when you’re dating. This little guy brings his mate food constantly throughout the courting process – and we’re not just talking about a basic one-course meal either. Food is an awesome gift of seduction and the blue jay certainly knows his stuff.
Now to following in this creatures footsteps, you want to treat your girl to a range of beautiful, seductive dates. We know that when you’re going out together that the thought of sex won’t be far from either of your minds…
Bowerbirds: Invite Her Home
A bowerbird knows the importance of having an impressive pad to invite a girl back too. This creature will decorate his nest with all the flowers, twigs and shells he has to his disposal to attract a mate.
The same should go for us humans too. If you’re lucky enough to bring a girl home, then make sure the place you’re bringing her too is clean, secure and attractive. A massive turn off would be to invite her back to your parent’s house for a night of getting to know each other!
Take pride in your home in the same way you would take pride in your appearance. It’ll make her more willing to come back for more!
