I am a guy who has been studying/practicing "pickup" for quite some time.I don't do it anymore though.I get laid alot more after dropping it too (like as in actually having sex,not getting laughs and phone numbers that go nowhere).There is a girl laying in my bed right now naked as I am typing this in fact.
I came here to share some hard earned knowledge that will save you alot of needless suffering.
That knowledge is the realization that pick up is a bunch of crap and it doesn't actually work.
Why doesn't pickup work?
It seems pretty great at first...especially for a guy with little experience with women.Get any girl.Have tons of sex.Never again have to be anything but a totally confident guy who gets laid all the time...a super hero...
Pickup doesn't work because it's all about creating attraction
Which is impossible.
You can't "create" attraction.It isn't what witty things you say to her...she is already attracted to you physically from the get go or she isn't.At that point just don't screw it up and you're in.If she isn't then you are not going to be able to win her over with your "game".
What happens is what we’ve seen over and over. Sometimes this plays out in the comment section on my forum, when some shill comes out of the woodworks and bites off more than he can chew.
You know the real estate mantra “location, location, location”. In the realm of dating, one could say “physical attraction, physical attraction, physical attraction”:
Think about it in reverse. Do you care how cool a girl is or what she says if she is 350lbs,ugly as hell,and the thought of kissing her makes you want to puke? I didn't think so.
It's so obvious it's astounding.
Sure,if a girl is hot and cool that is even better.But all that guys care about first and foremost is,is she hot?Her being cool only comes into play if she is already physically attractive to the guy.
Well it is the same thing for girls.Who would have thought.
The few replies this guy gets are beyond belief:
First of all most woman dont base their selection of men primarily on looks. This is of course what most AFC's believe, well this or money. Saying arousing attraction in a woman has to be organic is retarded.This is of course the entire premise of game. Yeah, dude, learn some fancy routines and figure out at which angle to approach, and you too can bang SHB10s!
RSD Tyler-like mind games feature as well. It seems that in addition to learning how not to get laid, those dudes also took courses in how to make lame attempts at deflecting criticism:
You've taken the time to come to a forum dedicated to pick-up and made an account specifically to comment on something you think doesn't work. How strange/sad.
Don't see how trying to help guys realize that something they might lose years,sanity,pussy,and money from following is strange/sad.Especially when the alternative is so simple.
Keep trying though
It doesn't take long until some dude from the very shallow end of the gene pool chimes in:
I agree with you that you can't create attraction, but that doesn't mean you cannot trigger it.
We’ve also got some bona fide philosophers on there:
The greatest and final fact!!! This one is the best… check this out: YOU’RE GOING TO BE FUCKING DEAD SOONER THAN YOU THINK ANYWAY SO WHO IS GOING TO CARE WHAT HAPPENS!!!??? WHO GIVES A FUCKING RATS ASS. This part is the most amazing of all. Seriously how easy is this.
Thus, this thread contains the typical reactions: disbelief, deflection, ad hominem attacks. It's probably a good sign that there were only two pages of replies. In the hay days of PUA, those would probably have been two dozen, at least that's a figure I was used to when I was trying to speak some sense on some of the larger forums.
