Their core problem, I analyzed, was lack of confidence.
I thought of PUAs as full of canned come-ons, the smell of desperation wafting off of them like bad cologne.
If you’re a woman and you’re alive, chances are you’ve been hit on by a Pickup Artist (commonly known as PUAs), by this method known as “negging.” I always thought of PUAs as nightclub prowlers, dressed like they rummaged through a clown’s closet, decked out in Ed Hardy, looking like a cross between Steven Tyler and The Situation from “Jersey Shore.” I often wondered, I imagine they are the same types of women who still think George Michael is straight.
Common sense would dictate that secure men don’t need a script to approach women.
Can you imagine Bill Clinton or Don Draper using PUA methods? As you may have deduced from my tone, I always looked down on PUAs and their slimy methods. Starting with something negative like, “I do consulting. There’s nothing more awkward than that end-of-the-night moment when you’re both wondering if you should kiss.
Which is why I couldn’t stop myself from signing up for a class entitled “Pickup a 10 in the Streets of NYC.” At first I was just curious; I wanted to know what makes these guys tick. It’s really boring,” won’t get you where you want to go. Don’t go to dinner on your first date because the table sets up a physical barrier. Dinner is great after you get to know someone a little better. If you’re flirting and touching before then it alleviates the tension.
I imagined myself as a spy on a reconnaissance mission, collecting information from the enemy. Barlie talked about the importance of not being a douche, defined as a man who is not paying attention to the woman he’s talking to — only how to impress her. How do you follow up when someone tells you how crappy their life is? A major physical barrier between you and your date can prevent the natural chemistry from bubbling up. But obviously, this touchiness should be well-received — if it’s not, I’m sure there are still plenty of guys who will embrace their inner douchebag when applying these techniques, but my guess is they already had latent asshole tendencies.
Or like Sigourney Weaver in “Gorillas in the Mist,” studying the species’ every move. Regardless, I learned that it is in fact possible to be a nice normal guy and a PUA.
When I entered the classroom I was pleasantly surprised. If any of the men in question had approached me (okay, 8 out of 10 of them) I would have been fully amenable to their advances.
