How to Be Charming

this is kind of amazing….

umm, a couple of things….

let’s start strictly with content.  do you think he’s right?  why?  no?  why for that, too.

try to only blink when he does.

what is the weirdest part of his attire and/or staging?

is his smile the creepiest thing you have ever seen ever in all time ever?

May your fantasies of today, be your realities of tomorrow.

    So… men are dogs and women are snakes?

  2. What’s with these youtube videos full of bla and lacking actual content? This guy also takes about 60% of his time to explain what charm is. I think he’s wrong. I agree with smiling having a sparkling effect (on both the guys and ladies) on people, but making your eyes twinkle by slowly moving your head and grinning can only get you so far. The creepy corner, that is. So, smiling is good, but I didn’t need mr Quackmire sr. for that tip.

    I don’t know what would be wrong with his attire. I dress and talk exactly like him.

  3. Bethany says:

    Absolutely. A pair of bobbing, twinkling eyes like that could never be wrong!

    He is actually right about smiling. Smiling is always good.

  4. Karin says:

    He is creepy. I think he actually believes the stuff he’s saying!

  5. His speech rhythms were incomprehensible – his words were intelligible, if not intelligent, but the reasons for how he paced them – beyond me!

    Head bobbing just seems weird (as he said that part, I had this image of loads of men trying to get a twinkle in their eye and just looking like a bunch of meerkats!)

    His smile felt creepy because it was that false, over-broad, “I’m trying to impress you” type of smile.

      Yeah, I didn’t like the pacing either. It made me suspicious as to whether he was trying to use NLP in the delivery of his message, but I’m certainly no expert.

      According to Wikipedia, NLP is regarded as quackery, which might fit here as well.

    I’ve been doing it wrong all these years. I’m supposed to be the snake, instead of the one that lures them out of their wicker baskets. And all that money I paid for flute lessons…

    The only thing I ever appreciated about Hugh Hefner is his attire. Dr. Paul, you sir know how to wear a robe/ smoking-jacket. Kudos.

  8. Jennifer C says:

    So, is charm deceptive only for the ladies? Because, if a guy tried to charm me this way… Well, I just don’t know.

  9. I gave up on being charming. It’s hard to charm people when you walk like a drunk penguin, unless you mean the “appealingly quirky” type of charm. But being smoothly charming? Yeah…not so much.

    This video is way better if you imagine that it’s a Michael Scott monologue. Or Will Ferrell. His definition of “charm” is basically subtle manipulation. His advice to smile and move your head is very simplistic, it is best used in T.V. commercials.

    I think the martini sold me. He was creepy up until then, but since he appears to drink a dirty gin martini, extra olive juice, he’s okay in my book.

    Not sure, but I actually think I’ve seen his picture in the U.S. Post Office before.

  12. Regan says:

    Can’t a guy be charming just by being himself? A kind person who listens to others is pretty charming in my opinion.

  13. Jessica says:

    So. Hot.

    Not even close to the creepiest thing I’ve seen in my life. Ride the L in Chicago at 3am on a Saturday sometime . . . I’ve seen some creepy things.

    camera fade to forehead….

    “May your fantasies of today, be your realities of tomorrow.”

    Sounds more like a curse, to me! Kind of like that reportedly Chinese curse: “May you live in interesting times.”
