A friend of mine is having trouble with men. Well, the main trouble is she doesn’t have one. For a date I mean, not for general purposes….
She is beginning to despair and says her flirting techniques are responsible for her lack of success
So, ever the helpful friend, I suggested she tries the old ‘seven second stare’ trick
Now, I can’t remember who came up with this theory, a psychologist somewhere, but the idea is that if you can hold someone’s gaze for seven seconds, you’ve got them. When I say ‘got them’ I mean, you have made a connection and it is much more likely that the encounter will go further. In other words – you’ve pulled
It is actually quite difficult to maintain eye contact with someone for that long – try it – but the theory says, if you are attracted to someone and they you, and you do the seven second stare, you will pull (or something like that, I can’t remember the exact rules). Anyway, basically, seven seconds is the critical time period for attracting a member of the opposite sex (or same sex if you are that way inclined)
A few words of warning for those of you wishing to try this though
DON’T STARE. There is a profound difference between GAZING at someone and STARING. If they don’t return your gaze after seven seconds, give up. Otherwise you are liable to be arrested for harassment or stalking
DON’T do this when drunk. It is rather difficult to focus so you may well end up cross-eyed. Not an attractive look….
DON’T do this to people you don’t fancy. That awkward moment when you have to tell them you thought they were someone else is not one you want to experience
However, if you choose your ‘target’ carefully, follow the rules and do the seven second stare, you will have a date in no time
It really works!!!
Go on – try it!!! You know you want to now!!!
Perchance, are you speaking from experience?
Actually, yes. Ha ha. My sister and I spent a very fun evening in Dublin once, practising the seven second stare…..
I love your blog, and named you for the Versatile Blogger Award. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is outlined on my blog. Thanks for all of the smiles you give me!
Oh!! Thank you very much! I will go and check out this mission immediately!! I love your blog too!
Genius! Perfect writing with the perfect picture!
Thank you! So, will you be trying it out?
My friends used to say that I had good “Come Hither Eyes”, which I successfully used to attract Cap’n Firepants. My days using my eyes as Weapons of Mass Attraction are over now…
I miss Marty Feldman.
Yes, he was brilliant!
Ahaha! This post, teamed with that picture, has tickled me, haha!
Thank you. Marty Feldman was genius!
