Why did you get in the seduction community?
It all really started when I typed “why do girls like badboys” into Ask Jeeves, one of those old search engines that died when Google got big. Somehow, that led me to Fastseduction.com and other community websites, but all I did for a long time was read, and never really practiced much. Then one day I was in a bar and ran into Tyler Durden, Mystery, Twentysix (Extramask in the game) and a bunch of other guys. I recognized Mystery and introduced myself. I wound up hanging out with those guys for several months just before they left for Project Hollywood, and I actually almost went to Project Hollywood, but I had to finish school.
What was your biggest sticking point?
My biggest sticking point was having no balls. I wouldn’t talk to girls, and when I WOULD talk to girls, I wouldn’t take any risks in the conversation, I wouldn’t try to move it anywhere. Also, I thought too much and over-analyzed things.
Why did you choose the name Tenmagnet?
This story is hilarious. When I first started going out and opening, I had a bit of a problem. I would warm up on some (ahem) less attractive (ahem) girls at the beginning of the night, and they would wind up LOVING me way too much and buying me drinks and following me around and stuff. So I called myself Sixmagnet…. as in a magnet for sixes. I thought it was a funny joke, but eventually I dealt with that problem and changed my name to Tenmagnet. I’d have to say though, in full honesty, I’m more of a nine point five-magnet.
What is your life like now with women?
My life with women is fantastic. I don’t talk publicly about my love life in any detail, since the girls I date know how to use Google and frankly I find it pretty tacky, but my love life is basically all I could ask for. If anything, I feel like I’ve been doing the player thing for a bit too long now, and I’m keeping my eyes out for a girl that can challenge me and be a good long term girlfriend… but I’m not in a big hurry.
What is one of your favorite routines?
All of my favorite routines are real stories about my life. I guess one of my favorites is a really awesome story I tell about how Johnny Cash rules, and I basically turn women into Johnny Cash fans.
I like my women, and I like my Johnny Cash; but what I LOVE is women that like Johnny Cash.
Do you use props? If so, what would be the one that gets the most reaction?
I wear a giant silver codpiece and carry a fencing sword.
Nah, just kidding, I have an iPod video with a picture of my little cousin on it. I show girls the photo of my cousin, and they (always) look through the rest of the photos. Of course, the rest of the photos make me look like some superman rockstar. The best thing about this prop is that it’s totally smooth… They were sneaking around and just happened to find a treasure trove of stuff that makes me look awesome.
Can you relate one of your favorite field reports?
There’s the time I sarged Kursten Dunst. Otherwise, I don’t write field reports. You’ll understand when the love of your life finds your field reports.
I was there doing a one-on-one with a student who I will refer to as K (don’t know if he posts here). We were walking through the NoLita neighborhood checking for sets, on the way to meet up with some of K’s friends. We has spent all afternoon doing day game, and were a little bit “sarged out”. I was looking forward to sitting down, having a beer and watching the hockey game (the Stanley Cup was on).
Walking down the street, I see a girl sitting outside a fancy-pants bar smoking a cigarette. K says to me, “do you think that was Kursten Dunst”, and I say… “nahh….. was it?”
No lie guys, Kirsten Dunst was having a cigarette outside this bar, and I wasn’t going to let that opportunity go by!
So, we turn around, and head into the bar in question. It’s totally packed, and I quickly ascertain that Kirsten is in a back corner, surrounded by an entourage of about 8 people. There is no lock in position, and it looks like a tough situation.
I talk to the waiter, and arrange for us to get the table closest to theirs, it will be at least 20 minutes.
I decide my best bet is to sarge her when she goes out for her next cigarette, there will be an interrupt 10 minutes in (as they finish their cigarettes and go inside), but that’s enough time to get locked into a set, to the point where they’re pursuing conversation with me.
I buy a cigarette off a guy nearby and get ready…
Kirsten walks out with 2 friends (guy and girl) to have a cigarette… I pause a minute or so, and join them.
10M: “Hey, (to Kirsten’s friend) can I get a light?”
Entourage: “No problem”…
10M: “Allright (engaging guy and girl, ignoring Kirsten), check this out. My buddy, Dave, just called me to say he can’t make it out tonight, because (jealous girlfreind opener)… are like, New York girls crazy or what?”
Entourage: Yada yada yada…
10M: “Ok, check out my crazy New Yorker story… this just happened to me today, and I’m visiting from out of town”
Kirsten: “Are you from Canada?? ABOOT ABOOT… I can tell!!!”
10M: “Listen, little one, don’t make me come down there!… So I’m at the corner of 1st and 60th, and this old, beat up car comes to the intersection. It’s spewing black, oily smoke, and there’s actually FLAME licking out from under the bumper… like an honest to goodness FLAME.”
“So I try and wave this guy down, and he doesn’t see me. So I walk in front of the car, yelling ‘DUDE!! YOUR CAR IS ON FIRE!! GET OUT’… and the guy’s window is open, and he can hear me. And you know what he does???”
(at this point, I make a face and give Kirsten Dunst and her entourage the finger)..”He flips me the bird and drives off in his burning fucking car!!!”
Kirsten: “New Yorkers are so mean” (kinos me)..
I’m thinking to myself… “Did Kirsten Dunst just kino me? Did she just run her hand down my arm??”
Yes she did… and it was legit.
I holds out my hands in front of me… Kirsten puts her hands in mine, palm down (IOI).
I look at her palms, raise my eyebrow and say “Hmm… interesting”, and push her palms away.
Kirsten: “What… what???”
I walk past Kirsten and lean against some fancy car parked in front of the club… the alarm doesn’t go off (thankfully… that would have sucked BAD). Kirsten follows.
Kirsten Dunst is now facing me, as I lean up against some fancy car, and her hands are in mine. I begin running a palmreading routine.
Kirsten is eating up my palmreading routine, but at this point her friends have finished their cigarettes, and are going inside. I’m losing Kirsten – she is being pulled away by her friends, and feels uncomfortable being outside, alone, with a guy she just met. I’m also at a good point in the palmreading routine, where I feel she is hooked on hearing the end of it… if an interrupt is to come, this is the best time for it.
10M: “Your friends are leaving… go join them… shoo”. And I push her away… she smiles at me and goes back into the bar.
As I get back into the bar, the waiters are just about ready to give us our seats… very good. We wait a few minutes, and start to take our seats.
As we sit down, Kirsten’s table gets up to leave. I’m like “crap!!!” and start thinking of what I can do to save this sarge. They go outside, and I pop out 30 seconds later (don’t want to look like I’m chasing them), and they’re already halfway down the street… and just like that, Kirsten Dunst is gone!
Oh well… it was an awesome experience. And the really cool thing that I noticed was that Kirsten Dunst is a really normal girl… like there wasn’t any difference between sarging her and any other girl you meet at a club. It was really cool to realize that even celebs like Kirsten Dunst are just normal girls, with normal interests, insecurities and regular lives. No doubt, next time I run into a celebrity, I’ll be ready!
Cajun won Rules to the VIP. Can you explain what it was like to see a former student do that?
It’s great… Seeing your students succeed is one of the best feelings you can get. Every week I get emails from former students who have achieved their goals, and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy. Cajun was an awesome student, he was really perceptive and observant. A lot of the time, he would tell me that he learned things from me that I didn’t even teach him, he just watched me in action and reverse-engineered what I was doing. And I was like “oh yeah, I do do that, don’t I?”.
What methods have you used to become comfortable with women?
The only method I’ve used is getting off my ass and pushing myself. The way you get comfortable with women is you go out and talk to women. Work on your body language and get chilled, and you’ll start getting good reactions from the women you talk to. Pretty quickly, once women start giving you good reactions when you talk to them, you’ll start feeling comfortable with women.
Nothing works like success.
Which pick up artists have inspired you the most?
Every time I hang out with other PUA’s, I get inspired and learn things. I’d have to say that the guys who influenced me the most early on were TwentySix and Tyler Durden. More recently, guys like Future and Dahunter have shown me things that really changed my game.
What did you learn from them?
From Twentysix, the notion that picking up should be fun. From Future, a million ways that you can be really direct and strong and lead a woman, and Dahunter has this bodylanguage that is a million times more relaxed than I thought you could get away with. Dahunter’s bodylanguage is so chilled you think he’s going to fall over sometimes.
You trained Cajun. Can you tell us what he was like?
Cajun (his interview) was smart and driven. He didn’t make excuses and he just did what I told him to. “Go approach that set”… “Tell those girls you like salad, and then try and turn that into a conversation”, whatever I gave him, he just went for it. He had no shame, no fear.
Also, he was chilled. He knew how to just turn the game off and be a normal dude. To be honest, not a lot of guys in the community can just sit and have a beer with you and talk about movies or sports or something, Cajun can do that. That’s why we became friends.
How did you tailor his training?
Every time Cajun would do something wrong, I slapped him upside the head.
Every student has a unique set of issues that you need to deal with. Thankfully I have enough experience that I can pretty much identify a student’s problems within 10 minutes of meeting them. Cajun tried to hard and talked too much and negged too much, but he learned quick. After that, it was just a matter of refining things.
What specific sticking points did you notice with him?
Cajun, like many guys in the game, talked too much. A girl would be totally into him, and instead of kissing her or taking her home, he would read her palm and spit game at her. So I chewed him out a few times. Cajun is smart, I didn’t have to teach him things twice.
