Are you Stocking the pond or Poisoning the pond? - BrB - 06-03-2011 05:42 AM
My friend made a very interesting statement to me yesterday while we were hanging out enjoying a few drinks. He referred to what I do as "stocking the pond". The pond being groups of girls. He started saying how I have a lot of attractive female friends in my life and through these friends I meet their friends, and then I meet their friends and it just continues on and on, all while I pick and choose who I pursue as more then a friend.
He commented on how even when I do end up hooking up with one of them I am always able to keep things cool and not lose the girl and her girlfriends as friends. I have always been able to become friends with women very easily no matter how attractive they are. When I was younger I was frequently "friend zoned" by so many girls that I wanted to be with sexually. Although it used to be very frustrating, I am thankful for what I learned back then. These days with a greater understanding of how attraction works this does not happen nearly as much and often times I am the one who chooses if we are friends or more.
The point is many guys I know don't understand this concept and often times can get really weird/creepy after they have hooked up with a woman. Even if you don't want to pursue some of these women romantically it's always a good idea to try and keep things light. Don't be the guy who Poisons the pond because you never know if you will ever want to go fishing in it again.

This is a perfect example of social circle game. Sounds like you've got it down pat. Being chill after you've hooked up with a girl is key to getting in with her friends - cuz you know they're gonna talk about it. Way to be.

Love your post!
I feel the same way about this.
I would also like to note this: it doesn't mean that because a girl isn't into you at the moment, that she can't be in the future. Just relax and keep the interaction going. You'll be surprised what time can do.
