20 Lessons from Models by Mark Manson

In Models: Attract Women Through Honesty, Mark Manson focuses on the emotional process of attracting women rather than a logical one. The book is different from your standard pickup artist book. Mark Manson encourages connecting with women instead of manipulating them to form an honest and meaningful relationship. It’s a book I wish I would have had ten years ago.

I highly recommend picking up this book but if you don’t have the time, I made a list of 20 lessons from Models: Attract Women Through Honesty.

  1. Getting laid won’t make you happy. Building meaningful relationships will bring your more happiness than one-night stands.
  2. Fake it to you make it. Carry yourself in a strong confident manner. If you practice enough, it’ll become natural.
  3. Not every women is your type. You’re not every women’s type. Not matter how hard you try, you won’t be compatible with everyone, and that’s a good thing. Don’t waste your time.
  4. Be fully aware of your emotions.
  5. Security is an attraction for women. Don’t be needy or insecure.
  6. Instead of asking questions, make predictions that lead to stimulating conversation.
  7. Everyone loves talking about and hearing about themselves. Make it a point to talk about her.
  8. Have a purpose in life. Have goals, dreams, ambitions, and hobbies.
  9. Take your time when talking to women. Don’t rush to where you’re stumbling over words. Avoid filler words; like, you know, um.
  10. Connect through universal emotions like shame, loneliness, achievement, regret, friendship, love and heartbreak. Don’t be afraid to talk about these topics.
  11. Laughter and human compassion are the highest forms of human understanding.
  12. Take action. Women hate when men are indecisive.
  13. Don’t be afraid to fail with women or in any other pursuit. Failing gets you closer to your goal.
  14. It’s okay to be nervous; it’s human. Embrace the fear and uncertainty. It means you’re alive.
  15. If you’re willing to sacrifice your feelings and emotions for a woman, ensure she’ll do the same for you.
  16. Maintain eye contact. Break eye contact only when they do so first.
  17. It’s not what you say, but how you say it.
  18. Have a clear understanding of the type of woman you want to date.
  19. Keep your shoulders back, chin up, eyes straight, and smile.
  20. First impressions aren’t just about how you look. A woman will remember how you carry yourself.
