*PUA Lingo does not endorse or support the use of these terms. We strive to describe them the best we can based on the seduction community’s uses for them in improving men’s (and some women’s) dating lives.
Buying Temperature is used to gauge the attraction level that a woman feels for a PUA and her current emotional energy level. A high Buying Temperature means that the girl is almost ready to “buy” (i.e. ready to make out with a guy who passes her standards), while a low BT means that there is still some work to be done.
Because women are very emotional creatures, and because emotions are contagious, Buying Temperature can occur in groups as well. This corresponds with the overall state of arousal of a group of women. Routines that increase BT are hand reading, kino escalation, dance routines, comfort tests, and eye gazing gambits. When done smoothly and well, this is called “spiking her Buying Temperature.” The BT Spike of a single woman in a group can often increase the attraction level of all the women in the set.
BT is different than passive value or perceived value. It can be transferred from the PUA to another AMOG or from another guy to the PUA. Thus, even if the artist increases the attraction and arousal level of a target, he could still lose the set if another guy AMOGs him. In this case, the built up BT transfers to the AMOG. Likewise, out-AMOGing another guy will automatically trigger an increase in the woman’s attraction for the PUA.
Be aware of the difference between BT and long term attraction. As high BT is temporary, it does not guarantee the girl choosing the artist over another AMOG. Increasing long term value will compel her to stay with the artist.
