Born in Canada in 1971 as Erik James Horvat-Markovic, Mystery was a major contributor to the seduction community since its inception on the ASF forums as seducers began exchanging ideas online. In the book The Game, he took on author Neil Strauss under his wing and brought him under his tutelage. Prior to becoming a PUA, Mystery was a magician and used the same stage name for his magic shows. His first girlfriend was his assistant from a kid’s birthday party where he performed his first magic show.
My job here is to get you into the game. I need to get what’s in my head into yours. Think of tonight as a video game. It is not real. Every time you do an approach, you are playing this game. All your emotions are going to try to fuck you up. They are there to try to confuse you, so know right now that they cannot be trusted at all. You will feel shy sometimes, and self-conscious, and you must deal with it like you deal with a pebble in your shoe. It’s uncomfortable, but you ignore it. It’s not part of the equation.
I’m dressing for the outrageous club girls, the hot slutty girls, the ones I could never get. They’re playing groupie, so I gotta play rock star.
