    Work Pick Up (WPU)

    Quick Definition: The act of seducing a co-worker at work. Full Definition: The practice of picking up women at work is a very controversial one. Some PUAs have no qualms about becoming romantically involved with their co-workers, while others caution against it because of the potential negative fall-out that could result. Hooking up with co-workers often happens very naturally because the vast majority of our adult lives is spent in the world…

    Valentines Day Opener

    Original Author: Gambler I just created a Valentine’s Day themed opener which you can use for the next few weeks! Seasonal openers are pretty thin on the ground. There are especially few for Valentine’s Day. With some slight tweaking you can make it work all year round:” Let me ask you something…My friend had a difficult situation on Valentines Day.

And she is quite shy in general… Could you make her feel welcome?” asked your friend. Sure, you’re a sociable guy and wouldn’t want to leave somebody out of the fun just because they are new to the social circle. Turns out she is the hottest girl at the party! She just d…

    2 Ways To Start A Convo (That Makes Girls Chase You)

    …Frame Control Tip 1. Some guys don’t like cold approaching or they get scared, or they think its too much work. Listen – its only too much work if you’re doing it wrong. This is why you should get a coach. Nevertheless, I want to talk about 3 mindsets you can have when approaching a girl in a cold or warm situation. #1 is: abundance mentality. Its no big deal. The next “10” (your version of a 10) or super hottie is…

    How To Arrange First Meetings With A Woman

    …nd that can only mean that she REALLY needs to get out of the house. Have her suggest TWO times that will indeed work for her. One will likely work for you. Then get over yourself. It was either that or voluntarily cancel your own chances. Sometimes women are thinking exactly what you’re thinking: “don’t be too available”. Someone’s got to break the stalemate, and you can LEAD by breaking it the way I just suggested…and come off as even more of a…

Maybe an improv class or acting lessons would make you more socially adept. But that gym membership doesn’t amount to much, and you never get around to doing that comedy class. You just do the usual twenty minutes a day on the forums while at work then listen to a seduction CD on the car ride…

    …y but takes less effort, we may be inclined to sleep with her nonetheless. If the girl is hot and takes too much work, we may go after the ok looking one who takes less work. Guys are also subject to ridicule by their peers, if they sleep with a girl who is considered “warpig” status by his friends. He loses social value and this does affect who he goes home with. Usage: Go get a real man’s blowout. If she’s going to rejec…

    Sex and Dating in the Big City, 24/7 Attractive Style

    …ry limited amount of friends, usually 3-4 in their core group, and b) Are very, very bored. Most usually stay at home. I had this conclusion after several years of flying in and out of big cities to do programs. Whether it was New York, London, San Francisco, or Singapore, a lot of these women basically stayed home if their core groups weren’t out! When it finally dawned on me that women in big cities were very bored with the lack of &#8220…

    How to hypnotize hot girls for Pick Up Artists

    Written by Vince Lynch, Master Hypnotist There’s huge misconceptions about hypnosis & NLP in the pick-up world. I constantly get emails about inner game, asking whether I can help people therapeutically so that they are better at their game. I think that’s kind of missing the point, hypnosis isn’t magic? I’m not saying I can’t help you – I just don’t think you need help – I believe pickup should be technique driven, about the things you do,…

    Bullshit Escalation

    …might be given a silly opener such as “I like salad,” and given a bullshit explanation as to why the line always works in getting women to be attracted to them. Even if the reasons why the opener work are made up, if the person using the opener believes strongly enough that the opener will work, this will come across in his subcommunication and lead to the opener being successful. This highlights the importance of delivery when opening, and commu…

    Logistics

    Quick Definition: The details of a situation, be it transportation, timing of events, howmany friends need to get home, how close the target lives to the PUA’s house, and other details that are necessary to successfully complete a pickup. Full Definition: Good logistics are key to lays. While a lot of lairs and projects form near well-known night club venues (i.e. Project Hollywood), if a PUA lives in the suburbs, it is important for him…

    Closing Awareness

    …ess also applies to the PUA’s overall reaction to the time of the night and the willingness of girls to go home with guys. The PUA who has great closing awareness can tell via body language and verbally in conversation which girls are DTF, and which ones require a little more work. As always, there will be the girls who won’t go home with you no matter what that night. Closing awareness can be honed the more a PUA gets to sleep with a…

    …ngs that rarely show consistent results. I’m not saying these things don’t exist but I’ve never seen any of them work fast and consistently and be filmed and tested. Ultimately many people say my stuff doesn’t work or isn’t real too, argument is good but test it all yourself before you make a decision. If something works, keep it. Or get the right person to teach you. How about, you just sit there and talk to that hot girl and use these 4 simple…

It wasn’t until The Hite Report that “mainstream” found out about how orgasms really work in most women. Even then, Catherine Hite was so thoroughly harassed by the government and media that she returned to her home country, Germany. This was less than 40 years ago. Today, ideas of attraction are cen…

This is illustrated clearly in a quote from The 40 Year Old Virgin: “If what has always felt right has not worked out, then maybe you need to do something wrong!” Usage: You need to step out of your comfort zone and start kino escalating a lot more.

    Jealousy Plotline

    …is a slight jealousy plotline thrown in somewhere along the whole interaction. People value things they have to work for, especially with women of exceptional beauty. A jealousy plotline forces her to work for the PUA’s attention, or risk losing it. Jealousy plotlines also work as a form of pre-selection because they show that other women are interested in the PUA. People always want what other people want, so pre-selection is an automatic…

Once might argue this was her claim to fame moment Men who have a true passion for their work are attractive, and in any profession, a true desire and love for his work is usually required for the “claim to fame” moment.

    Applying NLP To Pickup

    Hi guys,Anders Tryka from Powerful Connections here,One of the questions that I hear most from guys wanting to improve their game is “what are your coolest tips on calibrating your approach to a set BEFORE you make contact, so you can get to the hook-point faster?” The shortest answer to that question is: I don’t. As in, I don’t really believe in the hook-point as an important concept in my game. I know from my 10+ years of experience with the P…
