Explaining fighting to female strangers
So I'm posting this because I was making good progress with a girl at a bar until o shared with her that I train mma as my hobby.
She told me she thought it was weird and asked if I was into the wwf.
How do yall make mma work for you to impress random women? I mean it demomstrates you're strong and fearless and can defend her, don't women like that?
Maybe they aren't sure how they feel about the implications of this:
SOLUTION: Don't try to impress random women with your training
It's not so much that i'm trying to impress than ot comes up in the getting-to-know-you chit chat because its impprtant to me and i spend a lot of time training.
And I usually feel self-conscious about my battle scars.

Indeed, stick to the traditional methods of using big muscles and shiny objects to court affection. Also, the shiny things may allow you to catch crows for some sort of misadventure.

if you feel the need to impress you're already not good enough, you have paced hyourself lower than the woman.
basically when two people interact there's an (unconciously) little battle for domination that most people are unaware of.
between men and between genders.
the key is not to impress her because it makes you do the effort, sending of a signal the woman has control.
be slightly uninterested and send of signals that you MIGHT be interested.
yapping about mma's will only put the attention on the violent side of your personality.
now there are women who are attracted to these kinda men, but im pretty sure thats not really what you'd like for yourself.
You are not a virgin, are you?

1. Rule of dating: You listen, you talk about personal things only if directly asked.
2. Rule of dating: Unless you're really good at something, like an UFC champion, a published writer, an artist with a gallery, a singer with a contract with Sony Music, or a fukken Formula 1 pilot, never, never, NEVER, never talk about things you do to satisfy your inner man-child.
3. Also, THIRD rule of dating, eerily similar: Women dig the package, not the packaging process. You look strapped. GREAT. You can dress. GREAT. You have to train seven times a week, can only eat a steak and and an apple a day, and your mommy still buys all your clothes because you are color-blind? NOT SO GREAT.

bas rutten style: BANG! TAKE DOWN! SIDECONTROL, FULL MOUNT, HIGH MOUNT! BANG BANG!
This actually can be applied to either gender.
