King Solomon once wrote , “Silence is Golden” and with dealing with women, it’s the most important part of your arsenal. Women know this and will clam up in a heartbeat. Never show all your cards. Sometimes the best response is no response.
This keeps you mysterious, it keeps you in control of frame. Mastering the art of silence keeps you out of trouble. If you don’t say anything, you don’t have to explain anything. You keep silent , you don’t have to apologize for careless words you said.
You keep silent , you don’t have to cover up any lies you may have told since you never lied. Silence is golden gentlemen. With silence there is no promises broken, because you didn’t commit to promise anything.
We as men trying to build our character don’t want to break promises. We want to be men of our word, and when you stay silent , you won’t break your word. There is less sticky situations to get tangled up in and you give yourself time to reflect and think it through. This is what true leaders do.
Silence keeps you from insulting someone when they say something stupid. This is a tool you need in your toolbox, not just dealing with women but society as a whole. In the film ‘The Godfather’ , Marlon Brando as Vito Corleone, admonishes his son Sonny when he speaks before thinking, “Never tell anyone outside the family what you’re thinking again.” Silence is golden gentlemen.
Use this tool often and make it a part of you. When people don’t know what you are thinking they can’t use it against you. This a very powerful social skill add it to your toolbox of navigating the social settings you are in.
