It is extremely important to be seen with women. Why?
Because when you are seen with the opposite sex by the opposite sex they assume:
1. You are not creepy because she is with you. Therefore there must be something about you that is attractive. You must be able to have a normal conversation. And you are much more approachable for a girl.
2. Females by human nature are competitive. Look no farther than popular television shows such as The Bachelor, where they fall in love with a man without even knowing him.
If you do not believe this see for yourself by walking through the mall. You will be checked out much more by other girls if you are with a woman. Compare it to walking through the mall with your male friends, I promise you there is a noticeable difference.
The only drawback is that some will assume you are dating. This is an easy fix because when you talk to another girl that you are interested in you can say you are just friends with the other. But only if she asks, otherwise it is not worth mentioning.
The same is true to some degree with men. When you see a gorgeous female with a guy, you will wonder why she choose him instead of you. What does he have that you do not, the truth is nothing.
However there is power in being seen with the opposite sex. This is because it eliminates the chance that you are a creep. Also it ignites the competitive fire within all of us.
Therefore, I encourage you to start developing friendships. Even if you do not find them attractive, they likely have some attractive friends.
You can create these friendships just like you would any other. Show an interest in them, listen to them, and share yourself. Be genuine, optimistic, and outgoing.
Additionally when you go out to bars or night clubs if you go out with girls it is a huge plus. The sexual tension in these atmosphere's are heightened, likely due to alcohol but nonetheless they are and simply by doing this, you will be seen as much more desirable.
