    This was about two or three weeks ago... fuck dates, my memory is terrible for details.

    Every year I visit my friend at his university around this time.

    Now I had not gotten drunk in months, so I decided that my annual visit would be the perfect chance to remedy that with a lot of beers. I was not going to do any gaming or any shit like that - just have a fun time and be uninhibited.

    As people who know me here are aware, I see social interactions in a certain way. Like the way people behave appears to me as this flow of subconscious goals, facilitated by a bunch of little mechanisms they use to get where they want to go.

    Normally, I am concerned about my own little mechanisms and how I can get what I want from an interaction. But this was a fun night out, so none of that.

    Or so I thought. By the time I got drunk, I was still seeing the social fabric in that way that I do (can't do anything about it), but for some reason my drunk ass felt the urge to comment. Like everything I saw, I had to speak.

    I was sitting on a couch with two girls (not attractive) and just trying to be friendly and start a conversation. They were not interested so I sat back. I was not offended or anything because I was just kind of buzzing from the alcohol. Then I noticed something.

    "There's sexual tension between you two girls," I found myself saying... out loud. :squint: It was true. There was.

    "No there isn't!" said one of the girls. "Trust me," she said a little nervously, which was as bullshit as it sounds. Trust me?? lol. Someone else must have pointed the same thing out. Anyways I noticed what she was doing (in my own way) and of course found myself saying it out loud.

    "Ok," I said. "By saying that there is no sexual tension, you create a barrier between the two of you, against which the sexual tension will increase until it reaches a breaking point." :rofl: Like part of me is a little embarrassed that I said all this shit but also it was really a little satisfying.

    Then they left the room. Probably to go fuck. lol.

    So after this conversation I was sitting on the couch again. And then I look over at a table with two girls and a guy. I drift to their table and sit down a little bit dramatically and eye them for a moment, making the girl to my right giggle. I ask the guy, "How long have you known these two girls?"

    "We just met two hours ago," he says awkwardly.

    "Yeah," I said. "Yeah cause you are really invested in learning more about these two." I pointed to the girls without looking at them... then I noticed something else, about the girl to my right, and my mouth opened again.

    "And," I continued, "I am too socially awkward to capitalize on the mild attraction that this girl here has towards me." I smiled. The girl across the table covered her mouth with her hand. The girl next to me blushed a little. Then I said, "Proving my point, I'm going to leave now." :rofl:

    Ironically, saying all of this shit actually made me more attractive to them because they perceived it as some variety of confidence/savvy. Oh well. Another weird day in the life of j.

    Man, you were being one weird guy that night.

    I would have taken you into another room and been like "Man, what the hell are you doing."

    Are you sure it was attraction they were feeling towards you? :x:

    That's how it works... break a social rule intentionally enough and people enjoy it.

    Might work in some situations, but in my experience you will get blown out of a lot of situatuions. Its called 'verbalizing the matrix'. Forget talking about it and just USE it to your advantage.

    hahahah :bigthumb: I love doing shit like that at parties. I spend most of my free time reading philosophy and political science, and when I get drunk this massive vocabulary (that I don't use when sober except when writing papers) just comes out, but not the ideas, so I just blab about the awkward interactions I see around me.

    Wow, really awkward.

    I thought I was going to come in here and read a field report from someone using RSD. Instead it was just drunk talk.

    Unless you seal the deal, it's all mental masturbation.

    I've actually read a lot about you and this is one of the things I enjoy doing too. I love breaking social norms especially under drinking conditions because then you can just bullshit and say you were drunk or you can say you werent. But either way it's awesome to fuck with peoples minds and everyone just seems to sit there captivated like your some god. Fuck shit :bigthumb:

    Ha ha ... sounds like you were looking for something inspirational. Sorry to disappoint! This was just about a funny encounter... now let us all take a deep breath :p

    Falconer, RSD is real social dynamics. I believe that RSD is Tyler Durden's organization?
