Not a single one of my friends is prepared to entertain the notion that a man attempting to overcome shyness to create attraction with women is acceptable behaviour. Apparently it's just harassing women.

I find this pretty demoralising. How do you guys deal with this?
Hang out with people you share the same values. They probably don't get laid or are pussies.

Because sometimes it's just harassing women. Lol.

This is like learning how to drive, there are really good drivers that learn really well and follow instructions and concepts very well and there are others that drive like Charlie sheen after a wedding from the first day.

Like learning how to drive. It can be very good for you and change your life opportunities forever. But if also can take you to jail or even kill you.

That's on you.


Meaow!

I have several mates I see regually all I have known for many years, 1 i go out Sarging with most of the time, which was funny as we both didnt realise we practised PU, it was only when I mentioned something PUA related it came to light and he knew exactly what I ment, we now wing each other when necessary.

Other mates havent a fucking clue and can be a hindrance.

1 mate thinks you can only get women if your good looking and have plenty of money, He has money because he is a tight cunt and will ride his push bike to the pub unless he gets a lift. Hmm maybe there's your problem, your image, shorts an T shirt on a night out ffs.

Another mate even more clueless very little experience with women or social interactions.

Have tried to explain the fundimentals but it goes over their heads that if im talking to a woman I dont need you coming over and butting in especially the clueless mate, he will say negative comments about us thinking its a joke, so we tend to not go out much with them too much. But this game being what it is you dont switch it off if an opportunity arises.

They all laugh at us non of them will make an effort to go and talk to a bird but straight over when we do, esp if its a large set of women. Fucks me off the times ive told them to go and find their own, stop hovering and come over when I invite you over to join me, my other mate tells them the same.

By the same analogy, getting the right coach/wing/mentor is also pretty important to avoid troubles.

Learning to drive just teaches you how to pass a driving test, the real learning comes after.

PU is no different, you can learn the basics from books video's etc. Getting out there practising and learn by your mistakes.

That's assuming you know what your mistakes actually are. I failed 4 driving tests before I got lessons from a qualified teacher, then I passed afterwards. I see pickup in a similar fashion.

Ive never had any PU instructing tbh, this PUA stuff wasnt about when I was younger, it was hit and miss and the only advice I ever got was from my Dad and all he said was.

"Never give a woman what she wants in 1 lump sum, give it to her in snippets a bit at a time, just enough to keep her interested and wanting more. But no matter what you do, if a woman doesnt like you, there is fuck all you can do about it"

That was it, how the fuck do I go about that? I thought. So it was trial and error until I realised what worked and what did not. And what worked on 1 didnt always work on another, so I put it down to

"If a woman doesnt like you there is fuck all you can do about it" So I would give it up.

It took a while to learn that wasnt always the case, it was just some birds respond differently and different tactics needed, which I didnt have I thought they all worked in the same way, probably so many missed opportunities.

The younger Guys have so much more of an advantage with the wealth of infomation out there, wish it had been there when I started out.

Yes and no. There're several bad coaches out there (like Sasha Daygame), so as a beginner you have to choose wisely, young or not.

Tho I see good value in coaching, especially if you're socially maladjusted (e.g. have severe anxiety problems or underlying traumas which automatically mess up your calibration regardless of technique).

There probably is bad coaches, my argument is there were no coaches good or bad when I was younger. Had to teach ourselves. Now there are coaches, books, youtube all there to help. I'm not trying to make out im some sort of hero, I just wish it was there when I needed it. Would of saved me a lot of misery.
