Does Negging Really Work? Maybe, Maybe Not
"She talks about certain guys who want to game and neg 'glamour girls' who are 8s, 9s and 10s, and she doesn't think being negged by a guy who is a 6 or a 7 is an effective approach."
I came across a video by a self-described "cougar" named Karen, who was critiquing negging and the mentality/methodology behind it and why men may feel prone to neg to gain a woman's attention.
She makes a strong argument that it comes from a position of weakness and self-imposed inferiority rather than from a position of strength. Karen says the man who negs is said to be a man who simply doesn't feel confident enough in himself to approach a woman in a more naturally charming and charismatic way.
