tasty sauce

Duck Sauce "Barbra Streisand" from Mr Goldbar on Vimeo.

This tune has been stuck in my head ever since i heard the bootleg version from Fare Soldi ;)

Watch the clip and you'll see many cameos from the likes of Jay-Z, Pharell, Kanye (and I think i see Diplo hanging from the window at 2.46s!)

The answer

Inspired by the recent fanfare of the new MCYS tender to conjure unique solutions/ideas for singles aged 20 to 35 to mingle with each other thereby increasing their odds of being the target of Cupid, I too, had been pondering around this predicament.

I went on to search either in forums, newspapers and even personal conversations with friends and found out problems contributing to this uniquely Singapore challenges are as such; the rising cost of living in Singapore, the importance of carving out one’s career, etc

The reasons given above are all valid and in true honesty but being a renegade at heart, naturally I choose not to condone to it.

What is the solution then?

My radical proposal will be my understanding what woman will undergo when they meet the ONE. (The definition of the “One” will be explained later on this article)

Women, the stronger gender at times, are noble earthlings who can change even their un-kick-able manicure or whatever bad habit they have for their children. Many a times, I had personally witness the strength and effort that women gather in the face of daunting challenges occurring in the family. Be it a straying husband or a compulsive gambler, by and large, it has always been the woman who has taken on the chores from housework to mountainous debts in order to “protect” and keep her family together.

I knew the efforts that my mum had put in for my family.

The “revolution” that a woman is able to undergo for their family is unimaginable. This is a fact. Riding on this huge potential, I reckon that if a woman meets the one guy who is able to sweep her off her feet, then she will definitely undergo that unfathomable revolution that might threaten her career plans.

In summary, the “one” describes what fairy tales perceives as the knight in shining armor or their prince charming. Call me naive or an adolescent kid but yes, I have personally witnessed woman going through incredible lengths just to be with a guy. From the extreme act of severing ties with family members till perhaps a milder approach of alternating one’s lifestyle, the potential of changing their views lies solely in this valuable skill.

The skill where guys, especially Singaporean males, must literally SWEEP the woman off their feet because love is all about falling. People fall in love and how do you achieve that?

The only way is to render them off-balance. The similar feeling to that “kick” required in the movie Inception to get the characters out of their dreams. In our case, it's about leading them into their dreams, a safe heaven outside the cruelties of this world where they knew that you will be their hero.

This intrinsic "hero" talent to always leave woman wanting for more will cause your woman to re-consider you to be one of their “core” in their lives. This in turn will be just the answer to this national pandemic as i believed the fundamental reason is that Singaporean women are still now swooning over us guys yet.

I do acknowledged that just by having a revolution for Singaporean guys will not be adequate but the fact that the quality of Singaporean guys are in a diminished state, no woman will ever want to settle down. There can never be any compromises to a woman’s career if the guys that they are dating just do not capture their heart and soul.

To a woman, I guess the right guy is more important than the right time. We are no longer in some match-making era where every girl has to be off the shelves at a certain age. If we guys do not know how to be a fitting soul mate, understanding what to do and what not to do in dates, then yes, foreign brides are the only way to go.

I do not wish to see the state of Singaporean man being heartbroken, “beaten” up by angmohs and being labeled as a sub-standard product. The month of august is the month of our national day and let's just say I just feel patriotic now. With that, sixguys and I will try our best to usher in the new era of males. Stay tune to our blogs for more info to how just to be THE ONE or if you really can't wait, you can email your queries to us at sixguysataprataplace@gmail.com.

Your privacy is our top concern.

The start of a new beginning

"What does it truly mean to be passionate in something?".

I came across the above statement while scrolling through askmen.com marathon man series, which featured men who followed their guts, heart and passion to accomplished their unique undertaking not bequeath that of the task of constructing the great wall of china.

Passion, the quintessential stuff that drives human-being to do something out of the norm and that aphrodisiac that made life which sometime, can be a seemingly endless journey, to take on a whole new entity.

Peering into this one important attribute of human being, I can say that if you are able to identify a passionate person at work, then you will definitely be able to find that particular person who is also able to kick himself/herself enthusiastically out of the bed on a rainy Monday morning. He/she will be less likely to whine, to grumble and overall, a better person to work with and be with.

In short, he/she will be a real happy person.

Moving out from the work arena, you will identify parallel instances for those who inject passion into their relationship too. They will almost certainly received a grin from their partner in the morning.

The reason being, the right usage of passion at certain intense moment on a particular important furniture set is crucial to keep our partners in an euphoria state.

To summaries, passion is what fuels the bright sparks that few had in their eyes. Especially so in our developed country where the daily rides on public transport make me wonder sometimes that am I living in a zombie town with soulless people all around me burying their faces into today newspaper or worst still, the I-phone.

Incidentally, I recently had the privilege to attend a lecture with the topic pertaining to youths nowadays.

The lecturer hailed from SMU(Singapore management university) and I must say that one of the issues that was being brought out compelled me to blog about it for the sake of our dedicated six guys reader.

He mentioned that in recent years, he noticed that the youth in Singapore had lesser passion in the stuff they choose to embark on. So much so that even their dating lives are as such, tasteless. I will like to believe that perhaps the national services that we undergo, having had to survive on combat ration has evolved us into people with much lesser appreciation to taste or, on a macro level, in life itself.

One of the reason that the lecturer point out is the over-information that Singaporean youths get nowadays. Students are made to go through tons of books and the desire to follow the main-stream view of society and to helm it ,obligate students to have lesser time with their heart but to have a life-time romance with, their brains on all those information.

Books can never teach you much on romance but experience and a good blog will.

Being one of writer, I know for a fact that romance does not comes from the brain but rather from a passionate heart. Browsing through popular forums like the one in stomp or hardwarezone , it's no wonder why i witness people slamming Singaporean guys and seeing local "elite" topping the international maths competition. Being smart is good. But having passion in something is a whole new level which only ones that undergo will truly understand its meaning.

Perhaps it is because our national icon of on-screen successful guys such as PCK (Phua Chu Kang) that causes us Singaporean guys to be treated like our iconic delicacy, the rotiprata but there is a certain truth that once you are of legal age to be responsible behind wheels, you should take full-charge of life.

True enough that in a relationship, multiple factors will affect and shape the outcome of it but in all honestly, the best relationship that people, or i had, are people who believe in their work, thoughts and the aspiration that what they choose to do is going to make a difference to the world.

Moving on, passion = vibes, and it's a hard fact that first impressions do count in dates. Most guys i met will worry about what to say, what kind of conversation starter they should have and etc, etc... but really, one important ingredient they should ponder on is what vibes he is giving away to people, in particular, his date.

My favorite example will be, Steve Irwin. The late crocodile hunter was the reason why i decided to watch animals documentary where pior to him , it was just commentary who had boring voices meant for people suffering from insomnia. It was his quote:" ain't she 's a beauty!, crikey" and lots more, when referring to crocodiles and his overly animated expression that caught my attention. Never mind that some people might find him way too "over", like how we describe someone in a local context of being "overly-passionate", i can still feel that he is really in love with what he did.

At this stage, I like to represent sixguys to apologize for the slow updates of our blog but hey, as the ancient saying goes,:” Slow fire produces top-notch food.” I hope I get the saying right but who cares, in sixguys, we do stuff with our heart, not with our ears. We never wanted to be in a popularity contest for blogs and especially so, in my personal sense,to build this blog into a safe heaven where man can learn from each other infinite wisdom.

We welcome any emails and articles if you had something you feel strongly for guys or about anything. Please send it to our mailbox.

Sixguys will carry on to have endless supper session on what topics to salvage the state of men in today society or if by popular demand or divine intervention, to take on the greater mission of re-igniting the flames of our Singaporean guys, which apparently our national service had not been an overwhelming success.

Till then, as quoted from steve job ( just to prove that I had no grudges against I-phones ) : “ stay foolish, and stay hungry.”

Technology; some say its out to ruin mankind, while others think otherwise, choosing to believe that technology is the key to progression. I believe in the latter, and my point is, how I wish youtube came out 9 years ago so that I could have watched this awesome video and be inspired to replicate it for my Design & Technology final project >.<

And in case you people have no clue who Daft Punk is:

Daft Punk consist of the french duo, Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo, who originally banded with Lauren Brancowitz and formed a rockband called Darlin', branded by a song with the same name by the Beach Boys. But their gig together were shortlived; after a brief miserable stint (around maybe 4 songs and 2 gigs), one particular negative review from Melody Maker, a music magazine, described them as "a bunch of daft punk". That review pretty much put an end to Darlin's misery, and the band shortly disbanded...

...however, the negativity gave birth to something greater. Though the review depressed the duo, the review unwittingly inspired their new identity, and Daft Punk was born! Talk about making lemonade out of lemons...

This entry was crafted while chilling to this soothing song; give it a spin and I challenge you to not like it.

Here's a classic.

To sum everything up:

  • Chase your dreams, don't sleep on it
  • Shit is not always bad for you, handle it well and it might be the fertilizer you need
  • This post is made possible with music and video from youtube, information on Daft Punk dug up on Google and Wikipedia, blog hosted on Blogger... you get the picture. Technologic.

Epitome Of confidence

Tickle that funny-bone!

Just imagine sitting in traffic on your way to work and hearing this. Many Sydney folks did hear this on the FOX FM morning show in Sydney. The DJs play a game where they award winners great prizes. The game is called "Mate Match".

The DJs call someone at work and ask if they are married or seriously involved with someone. If the contestant answers "yes", he or she is then asked 3 random yet highly personal questions. The person is also asked to divulge the name of their partner with phone number for verification. If their partner answers those same three questions correctly, they both win the prize. One particular game, however, several months ago made the Harbour City drop to its knees with laughter and is possibly the funniest thing you've heard yet. Anyway, here's how it all went down-

DJ: "Hey! This is Ed on FOX-FM. Have you ever heard of 'Mate Match'?"

Contestant: (laughing) "Yes, I have."

DJ: "Great! Then you know we're giving away a trip to the Gold Coast if you win. What is your name? First only please."

Contestant: "Brian."

DJ: "Brian, are you married or what?"

Brian: (laughing nervously) "Yes, I am married."

DJ: "Thank you. Now, what is your wife's name? First only please."

Brian: "Sara."

DJ: "Is Sara at work, Brian?"

Brian: "She is gonna kill me."

DJ: "Stay with me here, Brian! Is she at work?"

Brian: (laughing) "Yes, she's at work."

DJ: "Okay, first question - when was the last time you had sex?"

Brian: "About 8 o'clock this morning."

DJ: "Atta boy, Brian."

Brian: (laughing sheepishly) "Well..."

DJ: "Question #2 - How long did it last?"

Brian: "About 10 minutes."

DJ: "Wow! You really want that trip, huh? No one would ever have said that if a trip wasn't at stake."

Brian: "Yeah, that trip sure would be nice."

DJ: "Okay. Final question. Where did you have sex at 8 o'clock
this morning?

Brian: (laughing hard) "I, ummm, I, well..."

DJ: "This sounds good, Brian. Where was it at?"

Brian: "Not that it was all that great, but her mum is staying with us for a couple of weeks..."

DJ: "Uh huh..."

Brian: "...and the Mother-In-Law was in the shower at the time."

DJ: "Atta boy, Brian."

Brian: "On the kitchen table."

DJ: "Not that great?? That is more adventure than the previous hundred times I've done it. Okay folks, I will put Brian on hold, get this wife's work number and call her up. You listen to this."

[3 minutes of commercials follow.]

DJ: "Okay audience; let's call Sarah, shall we?" (Touch tones.....ringing....)

Clerk: "Kinkos."

DJ: "Hey, is Sarah around there somewhere?"

Clerk: "This is she."

DJ: "Sarah, this is Ed with FOX-FM. We are live on the air right now and I've been talking with Brian for a couple of hours now."

Sarah: (laughing) "A couple of hours?"

DJ: "Well, a while now. He is on the line with us. Brian knows not to give any answers away or you'll lose. Sooooooo... do you know the rules of 'Mate Match'?"

Sarah: "No."

DJ: "Good!"

Brian: (laughing)

Sarah: (laughing) "Brian, what the hell are you up to?"

Brian: (laughing) "Just answer his questions honestly, okay? Be completely honest."

DJ: "Yeah yeah yeah. Sure. Now, I will ask you 3 questions, Sarah. If your answers match Brian's answers, then the both of you will be off to the Gold Coast for 5 days on us."

Sarah: (laughing) "Yes."

DJ: "Alright. When did you last have sex, Sarah?"

Sarah: "Oh God, Brian....uh, this morning before Brian went to work."

DJ: "What time?"

Sarah: "Around 8 this morning."

DJ: "Very good. Next question. How long did it last?"

Sarah: "12, 15 minutes maybe."

DJ: "Hmmmm. That's close enough. I am sure she is trying to protect his manhood. We've got one last question, Sarah. You are one question away from a trip to the Gold Coast. Are you ready?"

Sarah: (laughing) "Yes."

DJ: "Where did you have it?"

Sarah: "OH MY GOD, BRIAN!! You didn't tell them that did you?"

Brian: "Just tell him, honey."

DJ: "What is bothering you so much, Sarah?"

Sarah: "Well..."

DJ: Come on Sarah.....where did you have it?

Sarah: "Up the ass..."

After a long pause, the DJ said, "Folks, we need to take a station break"

And the drivers of Sydney almost crashed their cars laughing!

Hi guys, just to clarify on why the speed of our posts is akin to a snail pace; the reason being, WORLD CUP. sixguys is run by 6 boyish MALE adults who according to gender, are more inclined to be obsessed with soccer. So pardon us for it. Anyhow, here is something I came across that I would like to share with all our blog readers.

All copyright goes to the author from meetyoursweets .


What is the NUMBER ONE CHARACTERISTIC that all women are into?
Go on and think about it.

A full head of shiny thick hair, perfect sparkling-white teeth, a chiseled jawline, tallness, muscles.

Do you think it’s SUCCESS?
A great job, owning a company, being famous, etc.

Do you think it’s WHAT YOU HAVE?
A cool car, a wardrobe full of designer clothes, a beautiful home

These things are what most men think of when they consider WHAT WOMEN WANT.
It’s a tricky question. Even Sigmund Freud, master of the human brain, died with the question on his lips: “What do women want?”

Well, guess what. I’M a woman, and I can tell you RIGHT NOW what we want.
And here’s a hint for you: it isn’t ANY of the characteristics above. Sure, they might give you a slight advantage, I suppose – but if you’re lacking the KEY INGREDIENT, then NO amount of money, fame, or physical attractiveness is going to help.

Do you know how many letters and emails I get from men, who describe themselves as “tall,good-looking, and with a great job” who have a LOT of trouble attracting females?

Clearly, it’s not the “obvious” choices,like looks, riches, or fame, that women actually list as the desirable qualities of a potential mate. We don’t really give a damn about any of the stuff listed above, truth be told.

No, the thing that attracts females MORE THAN ANYTHING to a man – regardless of whether he’s tall or not, hot or not, buff or not, “successful”or not – is CONFIDENCE.

SEXUAL confidence, to be precise.

And no, I’m not talking about that feeling of smugness that you get when you think you know how to please females in the bedroom.

When I say “sexual confidence”, I mean the kind of confidence that a man has who can just ….
… attract females NATURALLY.

He doesn’t need “lines” or “pickup material”or a planned-out routine to do it.
He just KNOWS that he’s irresistible, that he’s got great people skills, and that people find him attractive. Period.

(And before you start freaking out about your less-than-perfect physique or your lack of designer suits or your dearth of a cool car. RELAX. Remember, none of these things attract women! You don’t need any of them to know you’re irresistible.)

To some people, it’s kind of like the question, “which came first, the chicken or the egg?”

Except in this case, it might be, “Do men know they’re attractive because females are attracted to them? Or do women find men attractive because men KNOW they are?”

Which comes first?


THIS is what attracts females.

Fact: Females are powerfully attracted to a man who is sexually confident.
Clearly, to attract the kinds of women that you want to attract, you need to get your “inner game” sorted out – because once you place a high value on yourself (i.e. you know you’re an attractive guy), women will follow your lead and echo that opinion of you.

So your first step towards getting that inner game sorted out is to get your head screwed on straight and FIGURE OUT THE REAL DEAL. Get past the false belief that females are attracted to men who are tall/good looking/rich/famous etc.

One great way of doing this? Simply get out there in the world. Go take a seat in a busy part of town, or in the park, and look at the couples strolling around. See for yourself how many beautiful women are paired with average-looking guys.

To get over your limiting beliefs that “hot women go for hot men” (or famous, rich, etc etc),YOU HAVE TO SEE IT FOR YOURSELF. So become an avid people-watcher for an afternoon or two.

Your next step: realize that there is no quick fix for this issue.

I know this is a drag. But in all honesty,there is nothing you can do that will “solve” your confidence issues overnight. Or in a week. Or in a month.

Building strong self-confidence is an ONGOING EFFORT. It is something that you will need to work on CONSTANTLY in order to get this area of your life sorted out. You need to be prepared for this!

And, last of all, you need to give yourself something to be confident ABOUT. You need to make sure you can base your self-confidence ON something, because otherwise it’s just going to be a load of hot air that’s based on ZILCH.

And if your confidence rings hollow – if you’re just FAKING IT – then it won’t work. Because women can tell the difference between a guy who KNOWS he’s confident … and a guy who just WANTS TO BE confident.

So: brush up those people skills! Find out about small talk, how women like to be talked to, how to flirt successfully, and how to make people like you.

I'm listening to...

Really love the art direction from 01.53 onwards.

Just saw this official music video from Mr Breakbot. This video is an amazing work of art! Why? Simply because it is a sequence composed with approximately 2000 over watercolor images painstakingly painted and directed by Irina Dakeva; 101% pure awesomeness! Now let me throw you some quick dirt about Breakbot that I've grabbed from Wikipedia:

  • Name: Thibaut Berland

  • French producer and DJ born in 1981.

  • Appearance: Breakbot is looking like Jesus a little bit." -Wikipedia (Haha, I kinda agree with this sentence, but you be the judge.

  • Signed by the good folks at Ed Banger Records, which brings us artistes like DJ Mehdi, Uffie, So Me and JUSTICE (mad love!)

If you like this song, check out his other works; some of my personal favorites are:
  • Van She - Kelly (Breakbot remix)

  • Metronomy - A Thing For Me (Breakbot version)

  • Sneaky Sound System - When We Were Young (Breakbot remix)

And while we're at Sneaky Sound System, show Shazam some love and check out his remix.

Transitions Trilogy: Meet & Approach

Before the time of social networking and fast food, our fathers went out to meet women in the strangest places, wrote extensive love letters to them and courted them during warm nights with a picnic basket and their charm.

Life became faster and many a man have lamented about the difficulty of meeting women, claiming little time and even lesser opportunities. Well, you can pretend that airplanes in the night sky are like shooting stars and hope for fate to land your dream woman in your lap but most of the time, fate needs a little pushing and prodding from you coupled with a lot of encouragement.

So, where can you give fate a guiding hand? There are many places you can meet interesting and attractive women, ranging from bookstores to your neighborhood kopitiam. This is a guide on where you can meet women and how to approach them.

The Bookstore

Ah, the start of many relationships where eyes meet and lock over the smell of freshly-printed paperbacks and furtive glances exchanged at the magazine rack. The bookstore is a great place to meet women of all kinds, from the young college student looking for a cosy place to curl up and read to that classy office lady searching for an escape from reality.

The most convenient way for you to initiate conversation with that particularly fetching lady by the fiction corner is through what Juggler calls a floppsy.

A floppsy is taking advantage of a situation that presents itself. For example, when that lady reaches out to grab a book, you casually say, "I wouldn't take that if I were you" or something to that effect. Conversational jujitsu fundamentals come in great here.

Floppsies can occur in any time and place with any person. Think fast on your feet, be confident and just throw it out there.

The Club
Different venues come with it different levels of expectations. In a bookstore, most women are not primed and ready to get approached and hit on. However, in a club, most women expect men to come over and talk to them. This causes most ladies in a club to put up a defense shield and have an instant rejection line whenever a guy approaches them.

Meeting and approaching women in a club is a whole different beast altogether. Many different levels of social levels come into play. Firstly, I would recommend going to a club with a group of people that includes a few women friends. They act as social proof and indicates to everyone else that you are not a weirdo looking out for young prey.

Secondly, I suggest either getting to know the people who owns or runs the place. Besides being able to get a couple of drinks free and perhaps a table to sit down at, it looks really good when you interact with the staff there as it again acts as social proof, the alpha male so to speak.

A few things to avoid-

1. When you head out to the dancefloor, do not stand there like most other men and look around the whole floor, hunting for young women to sneak up on and grind their buttocks for a few seconds before they turn around and either push you away or move away from your crotch.

2. Stand around with a drink in hand and scowl or sulk your way through the night. Remember, fate needs a guiding hand.

Things to do-
HAVE FUN! You're there to let your hair loose and party the night away. Dance, smile and move your way around. Dance with the men and smile with the women. When you're having fun, people notice it and pay attention.

When you see a woman smiling back at you, you have approximately 3 seconds to initiate some kind of interaction before she will look away. Normally, a pointed finger at her and a come hither gesture with your index finger will elicit some kind of reaction, either a laugh, a shake of the head with a smile or an approach.

If she shakes her head but laughs, take one step closer to her and do the finger gesture again. Normally, she obliges. You hold out your hand. She grabs it. You give her a twirl. She laughs. Your night is set.

These 2 scenarios were laid out for a specific reason; one is a speaking environment where conversation is essential while the second one is a loud, noisy place which makes conversation hard, if not impossible. However, the elements present are generally the same.

In the next part of the trilogy, we'll discuss transitioning from the approach to setting expectations.



If you liked this post, you might enjoy the Conversational Jujitsu trilogy and the Attraction 101 trilogy, all valuable components that help you with this post.

Conversational Jujitsu: Part One, Part Two and Part Three
Attraction 101: Part One, Part Two and Part Three

Just to throw it out there but sixguys, or perhaps only me, have been entertaining the idea of holding free field workshops for shits and giggles. The main purpose is to have fun and shoot the moon but also to demonstrate that we really preach what we advocate. It's just an idea in progress, or actually more of an idea in incubation but it would be really great to know what all of you think. Let us know!

An Update

Dear readers,

You might be wondering where all the posts have dried up to and what we've been busy doing. Besides the aforementioned Streetwars, sixguys is also pleased to inform all of you that we're working on a really big project these past couple of weeks. It's been taking longer than expected but we're quite excited to see it come to fruition one way or another. It feels like we've been in labor and the kid's finally going to pop out.

Rest assured though that we're still meeting up at the prata place to discuss about the direction we want to take with our blog and brainstorming new ideas for new posts. This blog is our soul and we hope to keep it that way. We really thank you for your readership and your comments and your e-mails and such and we're quite happy about how far we've come from when we first started out with a single post about ourselves.

It's a long, hard winding journey but the sights make it worthwhile.

About last week...

OH~ It's good to be back!

no applause? What? nobody missed me? Erm... Right. I get it. Your're all pissed-off as to why there was a dip in number of posts. Internet trolls and cyber bullies, allow me to unravel what we were up to last week - a week of stealth and deception, paranoia and anxiety, impersonation and trickery...So... about last week...

To suggest that my column is only late because I spent Thursday eating nachos and screaming at the Real Madrid players on my television is positively ludicrous, and you open yourself up to legal action if you even consider that as a possibility. My column is complete, and I am in fact rubbing it all over my naked body as I type this, so excuse any typos.

Truth of the matter is - I am not Iron man.

But I digress. You see, on Saturday night last week, we received a call from a syndicate who code named themselves Shadow Government. It sounded urgent and pressing and the man on the other line had a British accent. Here's the actual recorded conversation...

Man on the other line: Hello? We would like to speak to Agent Han.

me: Hola Amigo! It great to hear from you! How has it been, my brotha-from-anotha-motha!

Man: Er... I don't think we've met befo...

me: Bullshit! C'mon man, those hookers you intro'd me to! They were AWESOMEEEE! When are you gonna take me there again? C'mon man! How about tonight?

Man: Erm, Sir, I don't know you and I don't know what you're talking about. Can we speak to Agent Han please.

me: Bahh cut the act Johnny! We both clearly know what I'm talking about. *winks* Eh? Johnny?

Johnny: How- did- How did you even know my real name- My wife doesn't even- How-

me: C'mon take me there again and lets party! *winks* *winks*

At this point, 'Agent' Han walks into the room and grabs the phone from me
"Stop winking u idiot! He can't see you wink from the phone!"

'Agent' Han then takes the phone into another room which was equipped with sound proof glass doors for the sole purpose of keeping my prying ears out.

After a lengthy and nerve-wrecking 26 seconds, Agent Han emerges from the room and says,
"Assemble Team Samba. We have a target."

Shadow Government?! Agent Han?! Team Samba?! WTF is going on?!


To spare you the confusion and a whole fairy tale elaborately thought up by a 24 year old in the toilet taking a dumb because he had finished using his internet bandwidth from surfing porn, Team Samba signed up for Streetwars.

Just the facts:

- Streetwars is a 3 week long, 24/7, water gun assassination tournament.

- Team Samba consisted of Agents Han, Des, Xun and myself, Zw.

- Agent Han wets his pants every night in bed.

Now I know what your're thinking. You're thinking that its so selfish of sixguys, who would rather play a stupid water gun game than to spend their time writing posts for your entertainment and enlightenment. You're also thinking about porn.

But let me tell you this.

Streetwars ain't no stroll in a park.

We spent everyday living in fear.

That cleaner at the staircase of my block? A well-trained assassin skilled in the arts of disguise.

That unassuming rubbish chute? A planned ambush set up by guerrilla commandos.

That vehicle in your rear view mirror? Step on the accelerator and lose him!

All these happenings while we rack our brains trying to hunt our target and finish him off with a point blank double tap to the head.

AWESOME! YOU GUYS ARE SO COOL! WE LOVE YOU AND WANT ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
TO SEND YOU NUDE PICS (of girls)!!!


Alas, all good things come to an end. But not necessarily a good end. Streetwars was shut down, a week into the tournament. Apparently, Shadow Government faults licencing issues but we all know that it was because they couldn't handle the fire that Team Samba had started.

Team Samba had 2 kills in 5 days and we were ready for the 3rd.

But at least we can finally return to the life of simple folk. Dwelling in padi-fields and watching the cattle graze... Life may not be as exciting as it was, but at least there wouldn't be 4 paranoid agents, looking over their shoulders every now and then, ready to spring into a watery gunslinger soaking action.

How to Sliding Tackle

With tongue firmly in cheek, here's a guide on how to sliding tackle without getting a red card. It's also known as how to steal someone's girlfriend without getting brutally beaten up, killed or raped by his rugby friends.

Step One
Enroll in a self-defense class, preferably something like Muay Thai or Brazilian Jujitsu. This would help you out when you're facing her soon-to-be ex-boyfriend and his entourage of snarling friends on a deserted street. Instead of being brutally beaten up, you might just get away with a few scratches and a broken collarbone.

Step Two
Get a tattoo, preferably on your bicep or triceps and make sure it's snarling.

When you flex your bicep, it looks much more menacing to your attackers and they might get scared. Or they might call more people down. That's when you call the police.

Step Three
Make them break up. A great general would always sow discord in the enemy's camp and this is no exception. A well-placed female underwear in his bag would usually arouse suspicions in his significant other. Make sure it's lacy. And red. And has the name Stacy on it.

Start learning Photoshop and place your opponent's body, face, head, leg or even nose in the most compromising of situations with other girls. Make sure the girl is naked and he is smiling.

Step Four
Approach the girl and give her a shoulder to cry on, preferably the one with the tiger tattoo on it because chicks dig tattoos, especially snarling tigers.

Mission success.

Conversational Jujitsu: Redux Two

The Conversational Jujitsu series had stirred up a metaphorical hornet's nest among our readers that we deigned it prudent to present the views of two women on the subject.

You can read about it here.

For those of you who missed out on the Conversational Jujitsu trilogy, click the link below to read it in its full glory.

Conversational Jujitsu: Part One, Part Two and Part Three.

Another group of ladies, another two of them to be exact, wrote in to us as well about their take on Conversational Jujitsu.

note: Certain parts of the post have been edited for clarity but the meaning of the post has been left untarnished.

With the increasing demands for women's rights over the years, modern day society has established itself as one where the title of "woman" reigns gloriously in her own power, where many a housewife have traded in their homemade apple pies and soiled aprons for business deals and crisp corporate suits. Young girls grow up bombarded by the notion of female empowerment through a multitude of different mass media forms, ranging from education to songs on the radio.

As such, for all the 5 "C"s which one might have believed to be the makings of every lady's ideal gentleman have now been subverted such that it has become the makings of every lady's ideal lady (of which I speak of in general). Independent and headstrong, the 21st century woman is able to determine the importance and usefulness of various aspects of her life to her, and whether it would impede or benefit her in the long term goals she has set for herself (though this definitely does not take retail therapy into account). Her life is a computer with infinite gigabyte hard disk space, categorised into different folders and files, of which she does disk cleanup frequently to get rid of the unnecessary which no longer command/deserve attention from the Motherboard. Pardon the pun.

Result? I believe the phrase, "Hell hath no fury like a woman's scorn", is tell tale enough of a woman's might.

Intimidated by the gender stereotype role reversal, many males suffer the fate of being heartlessly deleted off hard disk space.

And now back to point.

Behind all that complication of a name, my personal take on conversational jujitsu is that rather than it being a guide on how to successfully interact with the opposite sex if they have always rendered you stuttering and incoherent, it teaches you how to be more of a human to another human. No pretense, no ulterior motives or agendas, no innate conscious reminders of the switch of the conventional roles of women and men in society, just simple connection and conversation between two human beings. (Though I do find "jujitsu" to be ironic - don't ninjas do things in stealth?)

And how do you know that CJ works? When you find yourself enjoying smooth, flowing conversation, and that your brain is so attune with conversing that all the conventional methods and rules to "deal" with the opposite gender - and even all that sixguys purports in CJ – has gone out of the window.

Conversational jujitsu is not a guidebook. It is a way of life. As cheesy as it sounds.

Charlotte Perkins Gilman's Herland would be the perfect round up to my thoughts - more so of a humanistic approach to interaction, rather than one where interaction is determined by gender convention.

Anyhow, just my two cents.

Firstly, I would like to express my personal relief and gratitude for the existence of these six guys (I should probably credit the prata place as well), some of who I know personally, for they make up the few good ones left standing amongst the male population of today.

Coming from someone who has dated some of the emptiest-headed men in this country (overstatement I know but you get the gist), I cannot emphasize how important a good conversation is, especially when making the first impression. Of course when you see a girl you are attracted to, you probably wouldn’t come to think about your opening, middle and closing. On that note, a good opening would be key to the attention required from her as you proceed so making that a priority would be wise.

This brings us to part deux, where negging and compliments are said to be a good start. I personally enjoy the negging. I receive it as a compliment but at the same time I am suddenly wary of myself; how I’m sitting or standing or if I’m smiling too much etc. Suddenly, I feel a need to actually impress him. The rapport is usually established at this point which is great! It is important that he is confident enough to pull it off though, having sat through some futile attempts which I end up dismissing almost immediately. A spot on first impression usually leads to a smooth journey ahead and females (most I know) are not very hard to catch on the first try, we just pretend to be (a nicer way of saying we’re in denial). Most females love the feeling of being approached, at least I do, so half the battle is won even before you say hello.

The tricky part would probably the kino; how to do it and how to pull it off and I leave it to sixguys to help you out with that one. Some kino I’ve encountered that worked like a charm; the hand-around-the-waist gesture when seating her down at a restaurant before yourself or ushering her down the stairs before you do. So classy! As well as the you-think-you-saw-a-speck-of-dust-in-her-hair move which embarrassingly worked for me. Heh.

I think the ultimate hurdle is getting through the attached ones or the ones faking the existence of a boyfriend. I think all of my kind has to admit we use that ‘oh I’m attached sorry’ move to shun away most of the pest-like men approaching us. Then again I feel sixguys abide by the Alex Hitchens more so than the Neil Strauss hypothesis. Hmm conversational jujitsu part four gentlemen? Just a thought.

Be it for personal victory counts or to find true love in your life, I am pretty sure your long term advisor is just a click away right here at sixguysataprataplace, best part is they don’t take payments!

(Ed's note: I swear we did not make any form of payment, monetary or otherwise for this plug)

Where else can you get such sincere consultation on not just women but L4D2 tactics and historical events that shape our world today! Too good to be true, I say.

More importantly I share with you my mantra. Believe in what you are about to do, then even if it’s false it becomes the truth. I actually got that from an espionage reality show. Oh and of course, R. Kelly. ‘I believe I can flyyyyy’

LOL - Humor

You will have almost certainly heard that humor is very important in terms of attracting and keeping your date but when most guys try to be Jim Carrey, they often fall short and end up being goofy. That’s bad, real bad.

Now, if your aim is to be Sheldon J. Plankton and remain frustrated over why girls avoid you although you've been memorizing all the jokes you get from joke books, here’s a tip for you if you fall in this category; take a look into the mirror and you can spot the world's greatest joke.

But if your inspirational model is Russell Brand, snatching Katy Perry like he did and some infatuated models along the way, do this - close your eyes and say,” I want to idolize sixguys.”


Now the later is just a joke.

Why is humor so important?
To start off, sixguys needs you to understand the answers to this question. If not, then participate in the audition for the lead actor of the movie, “The 40-Year-Old Virgin Part II”. This is serious stuff, especially in dating.

Through experience, we agree that there are various elements that women judge you when on dates. Ranging from the scent of your cologne to your gentlemanly Armani suit, one thing that towers above all this is, “Are you able to make her laugh?”

In general, men who laugh at themselves are willing to accept their mistakes and move on faster. For women, if you can tickle their funny bones, that means you are witty and a fun guy to be with.

It correlates to dating as love is always supposed to be fun and playful. Do not believe me, go look at females’ Facebook profile and you will probably notice that most of them are 'looking for a fun guy.'

The kind of fun men that leaves them playfully hitting their heroes and say, ”You are such a badass.” (In a funny way of course)

Also, when you make a girl laugh all the time, she will feel more at ease and relaxed when with you. She will be able to relieve her burden of a day's work and enjoy a multitude of jokes from you. And most importantly, she will lower her guard against you. Yes, a comfy sofa is not the sole ingredient that make women comfortable.

The difference between a stand-up comedian and a joker

Nobody can resist a good laugh and everyone loves to hang around someone funny. However, few can distinguish the difference between being lame to being genuinely funny. Laughing at a woman's idiotic driving skills seems funny to most men but to women, they think you are the perfect role for the Joker in Batman.

I have always believed that real humor has to come from within your character. In fact, in the book "Comedy Writing Secrets" by Helitzer, the author pointed that out. What it means is that it is important to have a bubbly personality plus a myriad of interesting stories. A stand-up comedian's distinct ability to spread laughter does not lie in memorizing the whole joke book but by their unique flamboyant character. Be it that spark in their eyes or the amusing tone they mimic, they sure tickle my funny bones.

It is not the intention of sixguys to just expect you to transform into a machine that produces a gentle smile or small giggle from her. What we demand from you is to literally get her to burst out in rambunctious laughter all the time.

Intelligent humor is a sign of the intelligent man beneath. Having a good sense of humor subtly tells the girl that there is a smart man underneath that great smile.

Wit is one of the stuff women seek in men. (Don't just take our words for it. Read this)

What you can do now
sixguys loathes being the dictator when it comes to women but the circumstances do not allow us to be humble. Do this, continue supporting and read our posts. It’s really an understatement to just read it. Understand and internalize the principles we are advocating. We don’t just write because we rather write than to spend an entire day watching grannies crossing road. We treat it as our mission.


We don't like pessimists. Girls despise them too.

“I think, therefore I am.” Appreciate what Descartes says.

Bear in mind guys: “With confidence, self-control, class and humor, there will be one lesser space left in the ranking of the Top-100 bachelors.”

Today in History - 03 May - 06 May 1999

n this very day,
A total count of
46 dead,
800 injured,
More than 8000 homes damaged or destroyed,
Total property damage of nearly $1.5 billion.

Does this look like a Junkyard?
nope, this is when a F-5 Tornado decides to go to a mall.
It will turn the Fiercest Fighter into a Self-pissing Wimp.

A total of 74 tornadoes touched down across the 2 states,
Oklahoma and Kansas, in less than 21 hours.
At one point, there were as many as four tornadoes reported on the ground at the same time.

Thus on, today is remembered as,

May 3, 1999 Oklahoma/Kansas Tornado Outbreak.

A tornado is a violent, rotating column of air linking the clouds to the ground.
It's not the winds that kill you,
but rather what it brings with it.
Making grains of sand feel like shotgun pallets.
We do not really know much about Tornadoes,
Scientists are still trying to figure out,
Under what kind of condition summons it?
How it damages?
How to predict it?
Most tornado have short life spans.
Thus, making them very illusive and hard to study.
But on this day,
the most violent and long lasting F-5 tornado was witnessed.

(I don't mean Brock Lesnar's back-breaking F-5)

But rather,
The Big Fat Ugly Green Wedge tornado.

F-5 tornadoes can have winds up to 512 km/h - size doesn't matter.

(F-5 refers to the Fujita Scale, a scale that rates the strength based damage it causes.
0(zero) being the weakest, 5 being the strongest. It is now decommissioned to be replaced by EF scale - Enhanced Fujita Scale which is also similar with slight changes.)

The F-5 is so strong, it is able to cause severe damage which includes turning well-constructed houses into matchsticks, turn cars into projectiles, badly damage steel reinforced concrete structures and cause significant structural deformation in high-rise buildings.

Below is a clip taken by Reed Timmer and Crew on 03 May 1999.

Below is the glimpse of damage that was caused.

Some additional documentation videos.

To see the path of destruction from the air, start from somewhere in the middle.

A reason why there are so many dedicated scientists like Joshua Wurman, meteorologists Reed Timmer and Joel Taylor, engineer Tim Samaras and even film-maker Sean Casey are risking their lives in their own way, to pitch in on the effort to further understand and educate the public about tornadoes and hopefully, able to increase the time for tornado warnings which could in turn save countless lives.

Like on 04 May 2007, when a EF-5 Tornado ( the only "5" class since 03 May 1999, it was 2.7km in width with winds reaching 330 km/h and only traveled a distance of 35km) went through Greensburg, Kansas destroying 95 percent of the city, severely damaging the remaining 5 percent and yet only killing 11 people. (Mainly because there was a 20-minute warning time before the tornado struck.)

I feel so blessed to not have the need to worry about tornadoes yet.

(p.s This is what Sean Casey developed to drive into Tornadoes for filming.)
COOL? It is called TIV 2 : Tornado Intercept Vehicle 2
Do watch Storm Chasers on Discovery Channel.

You may have questions. We may have answers. So just drop us your queries/story/situation by mail or any other way you can think of.

The following was sent to us by someone who goes by the name of Lyrad.

He sent us a telegram which was fine. Except the telegraph machine was attached to a poor pigeon and flown to us.

note: Certain parts of the post have been edited for clarity but the meaning of the post has been left untarnished.

We are like the "hi-bye" kind of friends. But soon we started chatting online everyday and i found out that she just broke off from a long relationship. Slowly we started talking on phone. i know she has many suitors. She told me about this guy who has been chasing her since Junior College days and they are very close friends but they were not together and she has never considered him. But she would always tell me what this guy would do chase her. eg. flowers for her, wait for her beneath her block, bla bla bla.

I remember there was once, she went out with this guy for dinner at a nearby mall at her place and the guy wouldn't let her go home. She then sms me and ask me what she should do so i told her if u need me to be there, i will go. initially she hesitated, after that she asked me to go look for her and to come quickly. From my university to her place, it will take me around 45mins. When i was halfway there, she told me 'never mind already', because the guy is walking her back. Since i'm already on my way, i decided to still go over to her place.

After like a month or so, i decided to confess to her. But she told "i'm not ready for a relationship YET." So, i take it as a half half situation, and continued putting in effort in chasing her. we went out a couple of times and soon people see that we were close but not in a relationship. Only her best friend knows about our situation. After another few months, i asked her again, but i still get the same response. So i took it as i needed to put in even more effort on this

We started chatting on phone everyday until the wee hours, we would go out together and sometimes with her friends. Then came along this guy, her primary school friend, who I don't know popped up from where. He started talking to her and confessed to her. After this guy came along, her time is shared between us between me and the guy. I was struggling with my school work at that time and the guy, because he has to go for an exchange, is quite free so he was able to wait and pick up the girl almost everyday after work. But soon the guy had to leave for his exchange, then the girl asked me to send her to airport because she wants to see her friend off. Although i was damn [profanity removed] with the idea of doing this, I still sent her to the airport because i felt that like that was a gentleman thing to do.

But when we reached the airport, she asked me to stay in the car!!! I told her if you want me to stay in the car, i will leave because it's just so stupid! Here i am, sending you to see my rival and you still ask me to stay in the [profanity removed] car and wait.

At this point of time, all we received from the telegram machine was an influx of high voltage electric signals. We assume Lyrad meant, "Yours sincerely, Lyrad"

Dear Lyrad,


"She has many suitors."
All pretty girls do. Based on your observations, all of the suitors buy her flowers, send her home, cut her toenails, etc. You chase her and I'm assuming you do the same affectionate behaviors as well. That is mistake no. 1.

We call this product differentiation in advertising. Or just pretty much, what's so different about you that she cannot get from the rest of the other men?

Attention? She has that by the bucketloads.
Gifts? She throws away the flowers and gives the wrapping paper to Pulau Senoko.
Suitors? One address book full of them I assume.

You’re following in the same footsteps as his predecessors, the path of the dreaded Friend Zone.

"I'm not ready for a relationship YET."
Yet, you continued to chase her. This is mistake no. 2.

If we were faced with the exact same situation, we would have said something like this, "No one ever is. It's whether you want to take the first leap and jump and take a shot at happiness and sadness and everything else in between. Or we can just stay as what we are. I don't want to stay as what we are."

You have to be prepared to lose her. Let her mull over what could have been. Utilise the cat string theory, so to speak.

"Although I damn [profanity removed] with the idea of doing this, i still send her to airport because I feel that like that was a gentleman thing to do."

Mistake no. 3. You’re equating being at her beck and call as being a gentleman. That is really, really not the case. You are not her boyfriend. So don't behave like you are one.

You have to be the fun guy, someone who has something unexpected every single time she goes out with you. Her heart races and she becomes excited when she knows she's going out with him because she knows something good always happens. And of course, treat her with respect.

Be firm but respectful. Be interesting and fun to be with. Engage in activities outside the norm, like cable skiing. Be her escape from reality, so much so that she wants you to be her reality. Take a serious look at yourself and think, “Do I want to date myself?”

We have been told you’re currently in the pursuit of another dame and it feels like the same one as before. Perhaps because you are trying the same old tricks? Ditch the movie and dinner date. Read up Attraction 101 on our blog. That is the foundation to attraction and start working on your weak points. Every women is different but the template is still the same.

Improve yourself and you’ll be amazed at the results. Good luck.

Conversational Jujitsu: Redux

A reader wondered aloud in our tagboard about the viability of the Conversational Jujitsu techniques advocated in the trilogy, especially towards women. For those of you who missed out, here is the Conversational Jujitsu trilogy in its entirety. I recommend you read it first before continuing on with this post.

Conversational Jujitsu: Part One, Part Two and Part Three

I thought it would be best to hear from the views of 2 very bright and attractive young women instead on their views towards Conversational Jujitsu.

I would like to thank them for taking time out of their busy schedule to write for us.

Knock yourself out spuds (:

note: Certain parts of the post have been edited for clarity but the meaning of the post has been left untarnished.

First things first, I AGREE TO THE PICK UP LINE point! In all things good and bad - unless you’re stunningly handsome and possess the swagger of Johnny Depp - I’m sorry but, largely, it does not work that way.

I really have to go with sixguys on this one. I do know what I want in a guy. There is one thing women have power over and that is called intuition. I feel it is okay to have an objective in mind and a bit of cherry sprinkling but too much and intuition kicks in. I believe females are pretty sensitive at detecting and spotting the difference because of our, and I quote, Innate Bullshit Meter. Be sincere, compliment yet do not give her too much. If you throw it all at once, what are you going to use for later?

I am the kind of person who values conversations and I do not mean auto-pilot, yes-no questions. Sure, I would want to talk about myself but I would also like a taste of your personality before I take things any further. To be honest, girls are just a part of the want to be able to speak well. For me, being a good conversationalist does not mean you have to be good at talking, it is a matter of what you contribute that makes the other party enjoy listening to you. (i.e. What do you like t.. Be Bloody Interesting!!)

Being able to hold a conversation well develops intellect and wit, it builds up your confidence and when you are confident, there is a sort of aura around you and a tag on your behind saying, ‘How You Dooin,’ copyright by Joey Tribiani. People around you notice, ergo, ladies notice. Seriously, when I am out on the streets, I get pretty appalled by the decreasing number of intellectual males out there when I hear them speak.

Another thing I agree to is noticing details. Really, really huge emphasis on this. You don’t have to be meticulous, you should just try being more observant than usual. Naturally, it will also add to your list of conversation starters and give you more things to chat over a cuppa.

“I noticed you like to… which I find rather interesting.” This is not negging

Actually telling her how much you like the quirky stuff she does will show how much you value the little things and I feel is what makes the relationship grow. Girls like it when they know someone is paying attention to them. Add in a little more Conversational Jujitsu and you’re on your way to detecting those IOIs.

When you see a cute girl walking into, say, a club, what is the first thing you say to her? Do you:
a. Approach her and ask, "Want to dance?"
b. Or "My friend wants to know you. Can I get your number please?"
c. Or "Can I buy you a drink?"
d. Take on a defeatist mentality and know you can't get her.
e. Think of what sixguys wrote about in sixguysataprataplace (especially in Conversational Jujitsu parts one, two and three) and use tips from there?

There is of course no right answer to my question. But there is one answer you ought to lean towards. Options a, b and c will get you the brush-off unless you are Vivian Dawson, Eddie Peng or any guy along their league.

(Although she might say yes to Option C and run off once the drink is in her hand). Option D is not the way to go; you might lose the girl of your dreams by being a coward. So I guess it's quite obvious what the preferred answer is.

Does conversational jujitsu work on a girl? As someone who just completed her university examination for statistical and quantitative measures, I will say that I am 90% confident that it works. (**If you are geeky enough like me, a confidence level was used because it either works on the girl in question or it doesn't. It's either a yes or no, not 90% yes and 10% no). Will it work on me? Yes it does. Of course, I am only one girl. I cannot speak as if I represent the entire female population.

Unlike what boys claim and like to sully my gender with, the mind of a lady is really simple. "Boy might not be cute. But boy makes me laugh. A lot. I think I might be interested in him." The gist of conversational jujitsu is of course, to make her laugh. (Mind you though, it's with you, not at you.) Girls like to laugh. Yesh, really, we do. We like men who are able to tickle us silly, while still holding a conversation of a certain intellectual level.

My favourite movie quote is from Ocean's Eleven:

Danny: Does he make you laugh?

Tess: He doesn't make me cry.

He, Terry Benedict, was all things for Tess except he doesn't make her laugh. Danny was everything non-Terry Benedict, but he made her laugh. Who did Tess end up with (again)? If even the sexiest man alive (George Clooney/Danny Ocean) knows it, how can you not?

There will be girls for whom Conversational Jujitsu (CJ) doesn't work. You will get the brush-off. Some of these girls are what we girls call 'superficial bitches'. They only care about two things: looks and money. They might be extremely gorgeous and look as if they stepped out of the magazine; but do you really want to be with a girl that superficial? Although, if you attempted using CJ and it doesn't work, it might be that you're not doing it right..

CJ gets affected by other things you do. If you're going to let the girl open the door for herself or you let her carry her own tray of food, chances are that she'll lose interest. You can be 'bloody interesting' but if you're also ungentlemanly, she won't be interested. If you're fidgeting during the conversation, or being a MacHead and insist on swiping on your iPhone instead of concentrating on the conversation (because you have one and 'it’s cool') - seeya later alligator!

Are you giving her the impression that you're trying too hard to be interesting? It will turn her off immediately - bye!

Conversational jujitsu will also not work if you and the girl are not right for each other. You might be a possessive-boyfriend type but she is a free-spirit hippie. You can't tell from each other's outer appearance, but it comes out during your interaction. In that case, it's not the fault of the conversation. It's that you can't fit a 8-tooth key into a lock that can only be unlocked by a 6-tooth key. You might have done well in the conversation, but she knows that the both of you are not suited.

So does conversational jujitsu work? Yes, it probably does. But there are definitely contingencies involved. You need to understand what kind of nuances in tone, language and physical actions you ought to use in what situation. Once you master it though, the girl of your dreams is really not that far away.

When conversational jujitsu does work, it makes for a solid relationship foundation. It paves the way for a long-lasting relationship with an amazing girl. You can even continue to use conversational jujitsu on your girlfriend. Randomly send her a cute text and remind her about what made her fall for you. (see an example from one of my favourite bloggers - http://quaintly.net/2010/03/10/excavation-part-2/) My happiest relationship ever is the one where my boyfriend made me laugh every day (though we quarrel nearly as much). Yesh, he used conversational jujitsu hehe.


One caveat about conversational jujitsu: Girls are not pieces of paper. We are not made to a standardized size, shape, weight and characteristic. We all differ. You cannot throw in the exact same lines given in the posts and hope that they work. They won't. What you say is conditional on the situation. You need to know how to make use of CJ to highlight your strengths, and throw in lines that still reflect your own personality. Don't try to portray yourself to be something you are not. It will only become a great letdown when she gets to know you later on.
