Multiple Thread theory

Multiple thread theory:

One of the biggest sticking points guys have once they have learned how to open, is awkward pauses in attraction. Nothing short of punching the girl in the baby maker destroys attraction faster.

There are a couple of reasons that guys will have awkward pauses.

1. They don’t have a routine stack or they don’t know their material yet. I am consistently amazed and dismayed by how many students want more material but don’t learn the 15 or so ATTRACTION only pieces I teach every workshop. Guys think that they need 300 individual pieces to go from meet to sex. And they think they have to learn them all at once. A better way of learning material is to pick 1 piece and practice it every set until you are good enough to get through it in EVERY set. Then you add another one. That may sound like a long process, but if you are approaching 12 sets a night you can get a new piece of material polished every night.

2. They don’t use material. If in the beginning of learning this stuff you don’t use routines, you are putting yourself at a MAJOR disadvantage. There are a myriad of reasons to use material. First it allows you to focus on the more important stuff , such as body language, tonality, touching, movement etc… Plus it gets a canned response, so you will have a general idea of what the reaction will be instead of hoping for a good response. If you are anti-material in the beginning of your journey and you don’t have WAY above average social skills, you are shooting yourself in the foot with a bazooka.

3. They speak linearly from subject to subject. This is where multiple threading can really help.


Multiple threading was introduced to the community by Toecutter who modeled it from the comedian Billy Connelly. It’s also an NLP concept for doing inductions.

The basic idea of multiple threading is to pause your material(stories, routines) in the middle and start another conversational thread. If you think about the way you talk to your friends, you naturally do this. You don’t generally have a conversation about the weather and if another subject comes up ignore it because you’re talking weather still. Instead tangents pop up and some stick while others don’t. One of the things that gurus don’t like to admit, is that not every single thing we say hits, however all the good guys multiple thread well enough that eventually we say something that sticks very well.

Now it is a very unnatural act to walk up to a group of people and talk to them as if you have known them for 20 years. If you want to get really technical MTT is actually a way of assuming rapport with a new group of people, which can be a powerful technique by itself.

Now that we have an understanding of what multiple threading is, we can start to talk about some technical applications. Here’s an admittedly incomplete list.

1. Pausing to start a new tangent. The way to do this would be to simply use a transition to move from one subject to another.

Here’s a quick review of ways to transition:

1. Content transition. The group says something that allows you to change the subject. For example the girl says that she was a gymnast as you are telling a story, you can transition by talking about gymnastics.
2. Observational transitions. You simply make an observation then discuss the observation.
3. Mini cold reads. You simply call her a brat, powderpuff girl, nancy drew etc… out of nowhere and start role-playing.
4. Phrasal. You simply say something along the lines of “ It’s just like when” or “ That reminds me of” and change the subject.
5. No transition. You simply start a new story out of the blue.

2. Hooks. Hooks are simply unanswered questions or unfinished thoughts. They are called open loops in the NLP community. Here’s where you say something like “ I was on stage and… then when they ask what you do on stage you reply we’ll get there in a second and then come back to it later. By acknowledging the hook, you have created a thread to go to next.
3. Foreshadowing. By saying something like “ I have to tell you guys about the time I hid those Monet paintings in the west wing of my huge cock later” You are foreshadowing a story to tell when you are finished with what you are saying now.
4. Background information. By pausing a story to say something like “ The reason the fact there monets is important because two days before I hid the paintings in my cock, I had been fighting aliens in space and…” This allows you to add info on what happened before the present in the story.
5. Character info. “ I was with my friend Ernie doing mushrooms off midget strippers and the thing about Ernie is he’s a liar, this one time he got caught at Saddle Ranch, what happened was…” This allows me to start a new story to explain who the characters are in my current story.

That’s enough to get you guys started. One of the major reasons why the pros are good is the use of multiple threading to avoid awkward pauses which lead to trying too hard to keep the convo going and losing value.

Ideally you want to aim for having 3-5 Open conversational threads every set. That way if for some reason either of you have to abruptly leave, you can get a phone number by saying “ We have a LOT to talk about still..”

Good luck,

S
