    Quick Definition: The typical guy who is outside of the seduction community; someone who has very little clue of what it takes to attract a woman.

    Full Definition:

    An Average Frustrated Chump (AFC) is shorthand for the typical modern male. AFCs are just your average guy—someone who’s usually had some success with “getting lucky” with women, and may even have had a few girlfriends throughout his life. But as a whole, he is pretty clueless when it comes to attracting women.

    AFCs usually have very socially conditioned ideas about how the attraction process works, and thus end up doing the opposite of what usually creates attraction in a woman. AFCs often feel like they have very little control over their dating lives, and that they have to settle for the few women who choose him, as opposed to being the one with the options.

    The majority of men are AFCs. Few are naturals. Many PUAs start off as AFCs who find out about the PUA community and have since made a commitment to improve this area of their lives.

    • I don’t think being “outside the community” qualifies as being an AFC. In fact the majority of guys getting laid are NOT in this community

      @PUA Hub:
      I think you are referring to the naturals. The term AFC refers to those guys don’t know a thing on attracting women thus when they try attracting women, what they do is very COUNTER PRODUCTIVE.

      I don’t see how winning approval form women is validing for you.

      Most of them are morons. Oh, wait. Most men are two. You know, the fact that most people are near IQ.

      Have fun chumps!
