Part of the problem was that some of this actually worked.
  1. Don't take no for an answer
  2. Compliment them, preferably on something that has to do with their physical appearance since they spend a lot of time on that
  3. Being a man means being in control, women loves real men, therefore women like being controlled
  4. You should be nice to her, for instance, by offering to teach them something they're not good at
    You know since a women are actually helpless
  5. Negging aka the "art" of giving a backhanded compliment
    Though some people will claim that the purpose is just to show that you're not desperately interested in her
  6. Try to make them smile. Usually it works just to say "smile."
