So what is cocky and funny? The concept that’s been popularized by the famous dating book Double Your Dating has a lot men wondering exactly what it is and how to use it successfully to attract women.
In reality, it’s quite simple and quite self explanatory. The cocky concept is to be slightly arrogant, which sub-communicates that you have confidence.
An arrogant statement would be: “I’m the best”
A slightly arrogant statement would be: “I’m pretty good”
The problem with ONLY using cocky is that, if you ONLY use cockiness, it actually LOWERS your value. Coming off as a ‘showoff’ or someone who’s “full of himself” isn’t going to help you with women any day.
The Right Mix of Cocky and Funny
This is why it is ESSENTIAL to mix cocky WITH the funny. You really can say anything, as long as it’s a joke. If it’s funny, then that cocky comment doesn’t have the same “I’m full of myself” air to it, because it’s just a joke! It does however, retain a hint confidence and is overall very attractive. Not to mention, funny is always great and creates a nice ambiance.
A cocky, yet funny statement would be:
“I’m pretty good… only on Friday though”
Adding mis-directional humor to the same comment removes the arrogance that would of otherwise been associated with the comment. The result ? You come off as funny AND confident, two qualities that are very attractive to have.
If done right, it’s fun as well! In fact, it’s SUPPOSED to be fun.
The concept of using slightly cocky comments that are funny only works if you sprinkle it throughout an interaction! It’s something you can use right now to add that little extra spice to your conversations with women. Even though it’s amazing, it’s only a small part of the entire picture. In order to make cocky & funny 10x-20x more effective, you must combine it with the mind frame, body language and techniques contained in Double Your Dating, only then will it truly be magic.
