Most of the time, you walk about the world meeting ordinary people living ordinary lives who leave little of an impression on you. That's life.
But, every now and again, you see someone, or run into someone, who
strikes you a certain way. You can't quite put your finger on what
exactly that something is - the individual has a certain degree of
intensity about him, you think; or a piercing gaze. He might not be
charismatic; and he might not be sexy or sensual. But he's definitely
This is a post about that "something;" about how to be edgy. Edge is a particularly difficult thing to learn, and teach, because it entails a specific rawness about oneself that most people simply lack. And that rawness is difficult to emulate when you don't have it... perhaps more difficult than being sexual, more than being charismatic, more difficult than almost anything else.

plenty of men with edges who still struggle with girls, too. It's a

Great to hear from you! Cultivating an "edge" is something you often talk about. That said, my understanding of what exactly constitute this "edge" is still rather spotty.

Furthermore, during your journey in developing "edge" to your character, what are some specific areas/mindsets you worked on?

Now let's talk about being edgy itself, and how that's different from sexy... and just how combining edginess with sexiness turns you into a very compelling character, to everyone you encounter.
