I know laughing at your own jokes is a major turn off, but I can't help it.
What's the secret to being able to say something funny and keeping your cool?

You are seriously asking your mom your dating advice, how old are you?

@tatsumaru Anyways, self amusement is an essential part of behaving charismatically and confidently. You can and should laugh at your own jokes, just don't over do it.

Self-amusement is the #1 key to attracting women.

You should laugh at your own jokes so much that you are having more fun than anyone else. Then the woman gets attracted because you are a boss, not seeking any validation or reaction from her.

Like I keep saying, attraction is a very counter-intuitive thing.

Whatever you feel, the woman was feel. If you feel good, she will feel good. If you feel awkward and shy, so will she.

You should even get good at laughing for no reason whatsoever. Just to laugh. Life is a fucking joke. You take yourself way too seriously.

Stop trying to act like James Bond. Start being a playful rascal. You'll get laid way more and you will feel happier.

And even in non-dating situations, people always appreciate a cheerful guy. Even guys do.


You are God. You are Love. You are Infinity. You are Leo.

I think he prepares for those types of videos or shoots them multiple times because on his stream he isn't that smooth.

I don't know how you can prepare for that. He seems totally spontaneous. This is the holy grail of game.

Agreed, there is also a wrong way of doing self-amusement though like laughing out of nervousness or being a clown to get approval.

The irony is that he’s made multiple videos shitting on PUAs. Maybe because ‘game’ is so natural to him it seems silly to practice

he talks pretty similarly if you watch his interview with Mizkif

I would put those pickup artists in a different category than the ones that Leo talks about.

It's possible that I saw his stream when he was tired or something like that. 

Haven't spend a lot of time watching it.

That is not self-amusement.

That is how most naturals view PUA.

They can't comprehend not being able to talk to girls. I found that I can't really relate to naturals because they are all extroverts and just wired to be chatty.

It's really easy to get laid when you are a massive extrovert.

I laugh a lot at my own jokes. I do a lot of self amusement. 

 

I don't know if that's attractive for a woman in a dating situation. 

But I'm good at joking around guys who are meeting me or in my company. 

Although I'm a massive introvert, I tend to manage to come up with a couple of jokes because there is a big funny bone inside of me that needs only a few tickles! 

People at my workplace call me a joker, because I make everyone laugh with my self amusement

Assuming both alternatives are authentic behavior (not pretending for others) do you find it more attractive if a guy's funny without laughing at his own jokes (keeping a cool face) or if he's being funny and also laughing at his own jokes?
