    Quick Definition: A comment or short line that is thrown—like a pebble in a lake—to DHV and neg the target, disqualify the PUA, and show a sense of humor all at the same time. This is Style’s version of a quick and efficient DHV.

    Full Definition:

    Pebbles are great for diffusing interruptions and multi-threading. They can lower an HB’s bitch shield and also make her laugh. Essentially, a pebble can be any combination of a DHV, neg, DQ, or joke packaged into one witty phrase.

    It is important for the PUA to not wait for a reaction after throwing a pebble. Regardless of the reaction one gets, one needs to move on quickly after a pebble. A successfully thrown pebble should not cause negative reactions. Some examples of Style’s pebbles are:

    • “That’s an interesting accent – where are you from?” (especially if she hasn’t got an accent)
    • “Um, that’s just a little creepy now.”
    • “Just because you’re a brat, don’t think you’re going to get special treatment from me.”
    • “That’s it. We’re breaking up. You can keep the dog.”
    • “Note to self: do not date this girl.”


    Try throwing a few pebbles with this group; it is quickly becoming boring.
