NONE OF THE INFORMATION below is mine. The information below is a brief, concise summary of Mode One. All copyright rights belong to Allen Roger Currie.
I encourage you to purchase and support Alan’s books, he has helped me and many other men.
Alan originally came up with the concept of the 4 modes of communication in 1982 after talking to a woman he was giving a ride.
This woman was shocked by Alan’s very verbally direct method of straightforwardly communicating his intentions.
He had a lightbulb moment and initially wrote the concept of Mode one on his napkin. The Four Modes of Communication are as follows:
Mode One: What women want, but don’t expect to hear. (Upfront and Straight Forward)
Mode Two: What woment want and expect to hear. (Polite, Phony, Well Mannered and DELAYED)
Mode Three: What women do not want to hear, but expect to hear. (Dishonest & Manipulative or Timid & Cliche.)
Mode Four: What Women do not expect or want to hear. (Misogynstic, Crude & Antagonistic)
Mode One works – even when people think it doesn’t.
Mode One contribute to me getting laid and getting phone numbers when I went out solo to Las Vegas.

With No further ADO, here is my review of Mode One By Alan Roger Currie
Mode One by Alan Roger Currie Review
Alan Roger Currie originally came up with the idea of mode one in 1985. He originally published Mode One in 1999.
The biggest inspiration for his book came from adult film actor John Leslie and his performance as a unapologetic, confident and direct ladies man Jack in the adult movie “Talk Dirty to Me”.
From the jump Alan makes a great point about self help books. Most of them contain more hype and theories then applicable real world information.
“NO BOOK CAN HELP YOU MORE THAN YOU ALLOW IT TO.” – ARC
After watching that classic movie, Alan decided to emulate the behavior and mannerisms of the character Jack.
Jack would communicate his sexual intentions with women in a confident, charismatic, seductive upfront and straight manner.
ARC experienced sexual success in college and gradually his male friends begin asking him for advice with women.
This chapter tackles the mental and societal reasons that Men engage in polite but ultimately phony and dishonest small talk.
Alan believes that deep down most men want to exhibit Mode One behavior.
The main factor Alan believes prevents men from doing so:
THE FEAR OF WHAT OTHER PEOPLE ARE GOING TO THINK AND SAY ABOUT OUR BEHAVIOR. (TO US DIRECTLY OR BEHIND OUR BACK.
Alan points out another key truth in regards to interactions between men and women:
WE ALL WANT SOMETHING.
TWO KEY POINTS ALAN MAKES:
1.) It is possible to arouse a woman to become sexually aroused simply by talking to her.
2.)Many women are sexually duplicitous. (Hypocrites)
(They will act like a prudish good girl around one type of man – a FRIEND, beta or nice guy and a kinky sex freak around a player or boss type.)
Alan makes another great point in this chapter. Most men who come from a middle/upper class or religious background have been SOCIALLY BRAINWASHED to always be polite with women.
Essentially, these men are taught to be indirect, polite by phony spineless people pleasers.
” Mr. Perfect Well Mannered Gentleman.
Most women know when a man approaches or flirts with them that he wants to smash.
This chapter talks about the games that men and women play and the reasons why we tend to manipulate each other.
There are only 3 types of relationships that men & women generally engage in:
1. A series of strictly platonic interactions – Friendship
2. A series of strictly non-platonic interactions – Casual/ FK Buddy relationship
3. A mix of both. – Friends with benefits, boyfriend/girlfriend, long term or marriage.
Alan makes the key point that if everyone was upfront and straightforward about the relationship they desired, he would have no need to write Mode One.
Men and women will pretend to want one thing, when they really want another.
Men and women manipulate each other because they are afraid they will not get what they want if they are honest and direct about it.
Men primarily manipulate to obtain sex from women.
Women primarily manipulate to obtain non sexual attention, emotional companionship money, and security from men.
The Four Types of women men will meet According to ARC:
1.) Reciprocators – She accepts your advances
2.)Rejecter – She denies your advances
3.)Wholesome Pretenders/Erotic hypocrites – She will harshly reject you and put on the facade of being a “good girl”. In reality she is turned on.
4.)Manipulative Timewasters – She will waste your time and money if you let her.
The Two Types of Men:
1.ALPHA MALES aka Bad Boy/Jerk – Confident, Masculine, Charismatic and Dominant
WEAKNESS: Difficult to get along with, my way or the high way, promiscuous.
2.BETA MALES aka Nice guys/Gentlemen – Easy to Get along with, monogamy and family oriented and financially responsible
WEAKNESS: No backbone – (Very lenient, passive, accommodating, and tolerant of disrespectful behavior from other men and women.
Beta’s are perceived as wimpy and easy to control and dominate, which lowers there sex appeal to women.
The problem is that many women are hypocrites. Women will put on a polite, innocent prude act around beta males and be uninhibited kinky sluts around alpha males.
“Women will always test men.” – ARC
They will test to see whether the man is more of a beta or alpha and how strong their backbone is.
Most men reject women they do not like sexually. Most women will find a way to use a man.
Whether that be as a friend, for his money, as a handy man or a listening ear.
THE MAIN REASON ALAN ACTS MODE ONE
Alan is not big on dishonest small talk.
Whenever Alan was Mode One with women, the “STING” of rejection hurt far less.
Whenever he was indirect (Mode Two or Three) the rejections would always hurt more, and for longer.
As a former polite, indirect guy, I can vouch for Allen’s methodology.
Being rejected after investing one to two minutes talking to a woman hurts far less then being rejected after multiple days, weeks, or dates of interacting.
What leads men to be indirect is FEAR.
Specifically the fear of what other people will do or say to them.
“YOU CANNOT BE HONEST WITH WOMEN UNTIL YOU AS A MAN FIRST LEARN TO BE HONEST WITH YOURSELF.” – ARC
This chapter focuses on Mode Two – The delayed method of talking to women.
Main Benefit of Mode Two Behavior:
You will be liked by women.
You engage in polite, friendly small talk for 75 minutes. You then ask the woman out to dinner.
She rebuffs you and tells you *Insert excuse here*.
How do you feel?
I can tell you because I had this type of thing happen a few times.
One time I went with a girl to a concert only to have her tell me she only saw me as a friend.
I was angry, pissed and felt like I had wasted my time, energy and money. I ended up cussing her out by text and blocking her phone.
This is the number #1 consequence of Mode Two behavior.
Because you delay letting woman know your intentions, they cannot reciprocate or reject you until you let them know the REAL reason you are talking to them.
In other words.
By being Mode Two, you will be LIKED by women.
Unfortunately, you will waste a lot of time with women who have ABSOLUTELY NO DESIRE to share your romantic company.
“ALLOWING A WOMAN TO WASTE YOUR VALUABLE TIME AND MONEY IS YOUR FAULT, NOT THE WOMANS” – ARC
I believe (as does Alan) that most women know within five to ten minutes of meeting a man whether or not they want to engage in sex with that man.
This chapter focuses on Mode Three behavior.
Mode Three is the weakest, most cowardly and pathetic Mode.
Mode Two men DELAY.
Mode Three men COMPLETELY DENY OR HIDE their true romantic and sexual intentions.
“MEN WHO EXHIBIT MODE THREE BEHAVIOR ARE LOOKING TO PROTECT THEIR EGO AT ANY COST” – ARC
These men would rather be liked by a woman then risk rejection and bruising their fragile EGO’s.
These guys would rather remain in a woman’s friend zone forever then to face an abrupt, straight forward rejection.
Men who are mode three cannot handle being blown out by being swiftly rejecting by the women they desire.
The main downside of Mode Three behavior is that by MANIPULATING and BEING DISHONEST you open yourself up to be MANIPULATED and have your TIME AND MONEY WASTED.
ARC specifically defines three types of Mode Three Men: 1) Timids, 2) Targets and 3) Liars, Cheaters and Manipulators.
The common trait these men share is they lack the courage and confidence to express their intent directly.
1)Mode Three Timids – Shy, Low Confidence, they avoid approaching because they fear rejection.
No backbone, no social skills, no father figure or big brother who showed them the ropes.
“How can you be lose something you don’t even have yet?”
2)Mode Three Targets – Has the confidence to approach, but NEVER expresses his true intentions.
Will engage in small talk for hours, days, weeks or months without telling women his true motivation for talking to them.
They lead with their achievements, money and possessions.
All of these men confidence is tied up into their material possessions and money.
3)Mode Three Liars, Cheaters and Manipulators
These men will tell women one thing but do a completely different thing.
For example, a guy who acts and pretends like he wants to be a woman’s future husband or boyfriend but after they have casual sex, ghosts her and dissappears of the face of the earth.
Friend zone guys who really want to have sex with a female “friend” would also fall under this category.
Alan and I agree on this point:
THERE IS NEVER AN UPSIDE TO BEING IN A WOMAN’S FRIENDZONE UNLESS YOU TRULY HAVE NO ROMANTIC INTEREST AND YOU GENUINELY ENJOY HER COMPANY.
Have some damn SELF RESPECT.
This chapter deals with Mode Four Men. Mode Four men are hateful, angry and resentful towards women.
Usually either after a harsh rejection or after a sustained period of being unable to have sex (IE Involuntary Celibacy , a man will feel this way.
Misogynists and many Incel men fall in to this category. Sexists do not necessarily.
Anytime you feel this way, you have entered the Mode Four Zone.
No man starts in this mode, but all men “transition” to this zone.
It can either be a temporary spot – or a permanent residence for some men.
Alan hits the ball out of the park in this chapter here.
Men who are Mode Two (delayed) have a strong tendency to hop back and fourth between Mode Two and Mode Four.
Men who are Mode Three will eventually end up in Mode Four and reside their INDEFINITELY.
Men who are getting laid on a REGULAR BASIS will rarely ever become Mode Four.
When a man is Mode Four, he concludes “ALL WOMEN ARE BITCHES AND UNTRUSTWORTHY WHORES.” – ARC
“Realistically, the majority of your anger and frustration is NOT actually directed at women from your past. Deep down, subconsciously, that anger and frustration is directed at YOURSELF. – ARC
The two major reasons for frustration and anger are as follows ( ACCORDING TO ARC)
1)The man realizes he invested his time and money and failed to have his advances reciprocated by the women he wanted.
2) He realizes DEEP DOWN that his behavior WAS NOT COURAGEOUS, HONEST OR AUTHENTIC.”
Alan refers to Mode Four as the “after the fact, EVIL TWIN version” of Mode one behavior.
This chapter covers Wholesome Pretenders & Manipulative Timewasters.
Wholesome Pretender – A woman who presents herself as a prude or the type of woman who does not have sex in a relationship.
Manipulative Timewaster – A woman who wastes men’s time in an attempt to use him for money, favors, attention and dates.
The biggest benefit of being direct and Mode One with women is not wasting your time and money.
This chapter clarifies the difference between Beta Male and Alpha Male Traits.
“You must consciously realize that women react and respond to men they perceive as Alpha males much differently than they react and respond to men who they perceive to be Beta males. – ARC
Alpha and Beta Males According to Allen Roger Curry:
An Alpha male would be a man who is competitive and aggressive, confident, masculine and has a strong sense of courage & backbone.
Alpha males have a strong backbone and are strong.
A Beta male is passive, egotistically inescure, cowardly, thin-skinned, emotionally sensitive, too agreeable and accommodating. Beta males are spineless and weak.
Women Respond to DIFFERENT MEN IN DIFFERENT WAYS
“The more ALPHA a woman sees you as, the more she will criticize you but the easier it will be to engage in sex.” –
“The more BETA a woman perceives you to be, the more she will compliment you. On the NEGATIVE END, it will be much harder to get her to have sex.
Women like spending NON sexual time with BETA males.
Essentially, Beta males get used for time, money and as emotional tampons while Alpha males get most sex.
Chapter Eight is a RECAP and summary of the prior seven chapters and Allen Roger Currie’s Philosophy as a whole.
Most of the time when you talk to women, their is a reason.
“You WANT TO HAVE SEX with the women who you are currently conversing with.”
Be honest and ADMIT THIS TO YOURSELF.
Most women know that the majority of men who approach them are approaching them because THEY WANT TO HAVE SEX WITH THEM.
Allen recommends you always seek to identify the rejector’s and manipulative timewasters FIRST.
You do this by bringing wanting to spend one on
Allen also recommends you diminish or totally avoid small talk and chit-chat with women.
Alan says that the first 3 to 5 minutes of your first conversation with a woman determines EVERYTHING.
Essentially “Alpha Fucks/Beta Buxx.”
Women will put you into a box based on your first interaction with them.
Allen advocates you never introduce your name, or ask for a number. Let a woman ask you what your name is. This mean she is interested enough to ask.
You give a woman your number and wait for her to call or text you. DON’T ASK HER FOR YOUR NUMBER.
Allen also advocates that if a woman REJECTS you, you should simply move on, not be more persistent.
Allen also makes a key point which is that women will shit test you to figure out what type of man you are.
IF A WOMAN IS SHIT TESTING YOU, SHE IS INTERESTED.
A straightforward REJECTOR will shut you down with the quickness without harshly criticizing you.
A woman test you to see if you are an ALPHA MALE or a BETA MALE.
How you respond to her test will determine how she responds to you. To figure out how to respond, I recommend you purchase Alan’s book and apply his advice.
This is the definitive chapter of the book.
This is where you apply all the wisdom.
Alan Lists 7 Key Mode One Principles (which I will NOT list here, BUY THIS AWESOME BOOK.
Alan discusses how you should first approach a woman.
What to say, how to look at her (eye contact), how to handle rejection, when and how to talk dirty.
Alan also discusses how to read a woman’s body language and non verbal behavior.
Alan stresses that COMPLIMENTS and CRITISCISMS from women do not mean much.
Mode One by Allen Roger Currie is one of the best books on dating, and pickup EVER made.
I first read Allen’s book in 2019 and I can honestly say that much of the time I got laid it was because I was acting in a bold, direct manner with women.
In other words:
MODDDDDDDDDEE ONNNNEEEEEE BABY!
