*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.
A pivot can be a long term female friend or a girl the PUA just met. Unlike the pawn, the pivot is usually a female friend who has long term value to the PUA. Sometimes pivots are familiar with pickup artistry, or are familiar with the PUA’s general style of game.
Melissa has agreed to be my pivot tonight, she’s been dying to meet some guys anyway.
