Guys can come too, I guess.

What do you women think of pick-up artists? That is, people who specialize and pride themselves with the know-how of picking up women?

Is it strange, unmanly or "cheap tricks"? I mean women have their cheap tricks too, they learn it from magazines, books or shows on how to reel in and keep men.

What do you guys think?

Please read the definitions below:

Pick-up artist (or PUA): A person with techniques (bodylanguage, attitude, self-confidence et.c.) for attracting people with no agenda on using them for sex or not. Usually people who used to be bad at approaching and talking to people who has learned to deal with this. Don't confuse them with the two later defintions.

Player: A person with one goal in mind: Using people. Don't confuse with a PUA because this person don't care about if he hurts people.

Douche or AFC (average frustrated chump): Your average popped-collar oompa-loompa tanned idiot who has no game, but insists on making an effort. The guy you'll see approaching women despite a conspicuous lack of successful experiences. Usually takes rejection like a little child and is overly agressive. Don't confuse with a PUA.

Seriously though, people who do it just to sleep with a different woman each week are pretty douchey. And I can't think of any other reason to do it than that.

It's so on, Kjell

I don't like them at all. That Mystery guy is a collossal douche, but his name reminds me of a song with the same name from A Bit of Fry and Laurie so it's okay.

I've been told I look like a particularly ugly girl if I tie my hair back and I've recently shaved.

Get real son!

90% of women AND men will think PUA is dumb and for greasy haired guys wearing leather jackets going "what YOU doin'" in Joey voice.

Its the art of social dynamics, social psychology, and building self-esteem. As much as girls will say its gay, lame, cheesy, fake, etcetc, I bet me and you are a lot more fun to hang out with!

Note, I'm a guy, but still...

I have to say that I despise these people because they **** up the chick's head and then she can't get close to any guy for the next 6 months because she's too scared she'll get used again.

That being said, I despise even more the women that do it, because they're usually the ones that have said to pick up artists "you're ****ing gross; have you no self esteem?" when, in reality, they're just as bad if not worse for being loose-moraled hypocrites

I'm a guy and I dislike them.


One of my friends (female) thought this guy really liked her. He met her at a bar and was really sweet to her and everything. She had sex with him and then he was a complete asshole and refused to talk to her. It really messed with her head and she still has a problem with trusting guys when it comes to liking them/being in a relationship.

And how do you know he is a Pick up artist?

Oh right you're just ignorant!

I think those guys are assholes, and I can usually spot one when he approaches. But then, I try not to surround myself with people that are like that. The best way to get to a girl is through friendships, and that's the truth. This "friend-zone" crap is a pointless fear.

But in any case, there's a fine line between pick-up lines and the cute, "I-dunno-how-to-talk-to-a-girl-so-I'll-just-say-something-cheezy" kind of talk. A very fine line. We girls have to stay on our toes to weed out the assholes who keep layin' in on thick.

Don't be that guy. We don't like those guys.

In all fairness that guy is a douche, and not strictly a PUA.

So he's a serial douche, then

A PUA is just a guy who picks up women, with no agenda of being a dick or not. Most guys doing it are guys who used to be the nerdy, shy guy who all the women rejected but now has the confidence to approach and talk to girls. They're ususally cool, and not that douchey.

PUA know what every guy wishes they knew.

See how long the Relationship thread is? I have yet to see a guy be mad at me for helping them out. Usually thanks and praise!

Posters in this thread are butt hurt that they

1. Suck with women
2. Blame others for their sucking
3. Misunderstand the concept

But when you sit in class next to a cute girl and don't know what to say, I will still be in the RT to help you anyways, cuz I'm nice.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I always believed "pick-up artists" prized the "hunt" over everything else.

Once the hunt was over, and they "bagged" their quarry, they'd move on to the next target.

Pretty douchebaggish actually imo and I've never really seen "pick-up artist" used in a positive manner.

You made a thread about buying a hoodie. You obviously care about you're social status enough to make a THREAD about it on a internet forum because you want to size to be oh-so-perfect.

Haha.

Bullshit it is.

I went through school being the nice, popular but quiet kid, and I can safely say that most girls will go for the guys that treat them like dirt.

Then you get to uni, and it becomes a lot easier to get sex. But the guys who can pull all the girls has got what he wants, and so have the girls, at least temporarily.

The only people who don't get any gratification are the ones in 'the friend zone'.

I'm very glad I haven't had to be in the friendzone for years. It sucks.

The two are comparable because you act as if wanting to have sex is a negative trait. Yet you buy things that, in your opinion (even though its ugly), would increase your social status via looking good in a perfectly fitting hoodie.
