Nick Kho (aka Papa) the co-founder of multi-million dollar pickup company Real Social Dynamics and one of the main characters in The Game by Neil Strauss has proposed to his longtime girlfriend Amber Holmes, and the two will be getting married in December in Hawaii.
Papa credits the skills he learned in the game for helping him meet and keep Amber:
“Amber was walking down the street. If I didn’t stop her, I would have missed the window of opportunity… going through the process of doing thousands of approaches to meeting Amber and then having an amazing relationship and being engaged to be married, I guess the whole process has overall been developing and growing.”
Papa believes that his exclusive relationship with Amber will lead to new developments in the RSD curriculum, that come from deeper understanding of relationships:
“For me personally, I have learned so much about relationships in general and having an exclusive relationship with Amber that will definitely affect future curriculum, especially because other instructors are getting deeper in their relationships.”
“For example, my partner Tyler has two kids now and he’s working on a program that he calls Relationship Transitions about transitioning from a life of going out on a regular basis picking up girls to one who has the mindset of developing a really awesome relationship.”
Nick Kho is the latest high profile pickup artist to settle down from the PUA lifestyle and get married. Adam “AFC” Lyons made big waves two years ago when he announced that he was getting married, and now his wife Amanda Lyons helps coach at many of his programs.
The reception to Kho’s announcement has been generally positive, with some PUAs saying it has “given them hope” and the video of Nick’s proposal has gone viral on several PUA forums.
