Proximity occurs when the PUA demonstrates value within a venue that other women can see. This can involve flash game or being locked-in with other HBs in the club. Women are not consciously aware of this, but they will place themselves close to the PUA. Usually the interested HB will stand her back turned facing away from the PUA, hoping that he will approach.
Proximity evidences surface when the PUA opens and, without demonstrating any value, receives a very warm, “Oh, hello!” response from the target, indicating that she’s already attracted to the PUA via social proof.
