02/06/2002 Just a reminder: Every single one of these letters that I include in my Mailbag and Q&A newsletters are the REAL DEAL. .. I get emails once in awhile saying "I know you make all that stuff up". .. lol, but I don't. They are all real, every single one of them. And there are some great ones this week, as usual. Enjoy. .. ***QUESTION*** "David- I will get straight to the point. Would you give some of your personal examples of cocky and funny in COMMON situations that I can apply to my own life?. .. Thanks, B." >MY COMMENTS: Sure. Let's start with your email. .. "I will get straight to the point. .." >[Interrupts you] "Well, this sounds boring already" ". ..Would you give some of your personal examples of cocky and funny. .." >[Interrupts again] "Do you have any money?" "in COMMON situations that I can apply in my own life? . .." >"Sure, don't ask boring questions." . ..I'm very proud of myself for integrating creativity into my response. I have given so many examples in my book and in these newsletters that it's almost painful. Do yourself a favor: Sit down with a blank piece of paper, and write down a "common situation". Then, write down an arrogant comment for the situation. Finally, rework the comment to add humor. Hey Beavith, that'th kool.

It looks like a Puff Daddy clothing ad gone all wrong. .." "I'll bet you a lot of these people were bummed when they stopped selling Hamm’s beer. .." "So what do you say we cruise down to Target after we're done here to see if we can get with the hip fashion scene in this place?" Cummon, I know you can do it. You may actually have to use the creative part of your mind, but I know you can. .. so give it a try. .. "I'll bet you a dollar that there is at least one Ford Pinto station wagon with flames on the hood and at least one Vega in the parking lot of this bar. .." ***QUESTION*** Dear David, Most of the girls i know think i'm great fun, i'm the kind of guy who at parties makes everyone laugh and has all the girls talking to him but ends up going home alone and empty handed. I'm not hidious or anything infact most of the girls i know think i'm pretty cute but still none of them ask me out. what i want to know is why, what am i doing wrong. >MY COMMENTS: Click here: http://www.doubleyourdating.com/ebook/ </cgi-bin/redir.cgi? ...and let the DE- WUSS-IFICATION begin. You know, you claim to always go home empty handed. .. but something tells me that your hand doesn't remain empty for the entire evening. .. [Another Cocky and Funny comment purely for the benefit of the previous contributor. OK, so I was laughing my ass off as I typed it. I admit it.] ***BLATANT (and real) ENDORSEMENT*** "Dave, Let me start by saying I feel a "little" dumb now, thanks. Either way, I bought your book, and within one paragraph I was
