In the past, when I suspected a woman was going to fall apart, one of my tactics was to call her before I met her. I found that it greatly reduced the flaking of it. Once on the phone, I did something that I think women would find disturbing! In fact, I’m pretty sure if they knew what I’m doing they would freak out and maybe even call the police.

Are you curious?

Do you want to know what I did?


I’ll tell you…


It’s alright, it’s alright, it’s alright, it’s alright… I’m telling you… (Wow!)


So here we go…

Most of the time, while on the phone with a woman, she had a knife in her hand!

Don’t worry.

It wasn’t a meat cleaver or anything like that.

It was my Swiss Army knife.

Now why would I play with my Swiss Army knife while on the phone with a beautiful woman? Am I some kind of nutcase who fantasizes about cutting girls to pieces over the phone?

Of course not!

So why did I do this?

A clever neuroscientist discovered a link between your hands and the creative side of your brain. He may have noticed that when he’s playing with a pen, a stress ball, or even a paper clip, the solutions to some of his most persistent problems just pop into his head. And when you’re on the phone with a woman and you want to have a flowing conversation, I think it’s good to be creative.

That’s why I often held something in my hand while talking on the phone.

Sometimes it was my Swiss Army knife, sometimes a pen, sometimes one of those stress balls (you know, the ones that were pretty popular at the time).

Which brings the knife-wielding narrator to the point:

One of the best things you can do to get more online dating dates is to suggest a virtual date first.

It can be a video call or a phone call. It doesn’t matter.

What matters is this:

When you’re on your virtual date, have something in hand to play with.

You will be more creative.

It is easy!

Oh, and if you’re wondering how to set up a virtual date, it’s simple too. After you’ve been chatting online for a while, suggest a virtual date just like you would suggest a normal date. There is really nothing different about it.

For example:

“You seem like a fun person. Let’s have a video chat so we can talk like real people. Do you prefer Skype or Facetime?”

I hope this helps you as much as it helped me.
