    Quick Definition: A type of more serious roll off, where the PUA totally disengages temporarily from the target or group after hooking the set. A takeaway can last from a few seconds to hours depending on the situation.


    Full Definition:

    The idea of the “takeaway” is to literally take away the PUA’s strong presence from the woman, to make her feel a sense of detachment from you. While in the PUA’s presence, the sun is shining down on her; when the PUA leaves, so does the sun. The positive emotions associated with his presence are also taken away, and she is left in the rain. Relating to cat string theory, takeaways can be powerful push and pull plays during a seduction.

    A takeaway can include going to talk to another girl, or leaving on purpose to go to the bathroom or get a drink.

    Sometimes during takeaways the PUA may not have opportunity to see the girl again. In these cases, it is important to either make a note to follow-up, or genuinely not care and have a “next” mentality. A takeaway can also help recover a stalling set, but make the girl wonder why the PUA left. They can be even be done mid-sentence as a PUA’s attention drifts elsewhere as a neg to SHBs.

    Usage:

    Do a takeaway with the 2 set right now, I need you to wing my set now anyway.

      what is the difference between takeaways and freeze outs?

      • Good question.

        A freezeout is a proglonged takeaway when in bed facing LMR

      “Quick Definition: A permanent roll off…A takeaway can last from a few seconds to…”

      Who wrote this definition?
      First of all, a roll off is one form of a take-away.
      A take-away is NOT a roll off–let alone a “permanent” roll off.

      On what planet is “a few seconds” permanent?

      • Good catch thank you

        I wrote this def a few years ago, I meant to say that a takeaway is a more “permanent” form of a roll off. Whereas a roll off could have just moving your body a bit during conversation, a takeaway literally involves you moving away to do something else

          I’m familiar with several examples of takeaways,
          but I’ve never heard of physically moving away to do something else.
          You may be thinking of a freeze out.

          Most of the takeaways I’ve heard of (as far back as Ross Jeffries)
          are simply spoken.

          A roll off is one form of a takeaway, as is throwing her hand away,
          as is simply saying something that a needy guy would never say to her,
          Her: I’m an accountant.
          You: “What the fuck?”

          I suppose the important point is to remain non-needy.
          So you can do this even in text (by NOT texting for a long time!).

          “A woman can only experience passion for you if she believes she could do something to lose you. Understand that when you show this willingness to walk away, it conveys the message that you are the prize to be won, that you are the person of value, and she had better take advantage of this opportunity. If you show a non-stop devotion to her, and put up with her crap, then where is that tension of knowing she could lose you?” – Ross Jeffries, Sep 1998

          • Yep in the VH1 Pickup Artist in-field mystery saw one of the aspiring PUAs to tell his student to do to do a takeaway and he said, “I don’t think he knows what a takeaway is”

            Tyler Durden also uses the same term to describe a story where he went to talk to another girl, and his friend came up to talk to his old girl and he’s like, ‘dude that was a takeaway’ dont take her number now
