I do take requests and get to them as I am able :) Actually, I've been thinking about this issue for the last couple of days, and my take on this right now is that, while "making friends" seems to involve basically making a lot of rapport, seduction and persuasion seem to require a good balance of making and breaking rapport. I guess that's where the mind games and seduction methods try to bring a roadmap...
Rather than looking at others "from the outside", empathy is trying to see the world from their point of view.
It is also conveying the desire to know another person, understand them, and learn from them.
Keep an eye out for more advanced techniques in the future to build attraction.
I'm just jumping around a bit, because I have many readers with a number of different goals, as well as varying ability and knowledge levels.
So, it is quite possible to do so, while also maintaining those three pieces of rapport.
It just takes leading (with rapport) towards your desired goal for the interaction.
To be non-judgmental, no matter what the other person tells you.For therapists, it includes the following:1) Genuineness - This means to be "real" in your relating with others.To not have a hidden agenda, hide your feelings, or lie.Welcome back to The Attraction Doctor Have you ever had a time when you just couldn't connect with someone?Maybe you just couldn't "click" with someone attractive you were trying to talk to in a coffee shop or bookstore. Or maybe, it was a relationship partner, with whom you couldn't quite see eye-to-eye.Too much rapport only and a strong friendship will develop without passion (what the PUAs might call "let's just be friends").On the other hand, too much breaking rapport can lead to a passionate one-night-stand, but not much of a relationship (what the PUAs call "flash game" leading to "fool's mate").It is a perspective and way of relating that is always effective - from a first "hello" through a marriage.It helps you to truly create Rapport with the ones you love (or want to).Usually, we rely on something fake to do it (like a pick-up line). Find something interesting and ask them about it.).Overall, you can't go wrong with being Genuine (real), Empathetic (understanding), and Warm (accepting).
