Pick-up artistry is apparently alive and well.
Well, maybe not thriving but it's certainly still out there. Those who buy into the PUA life are still negging and giving women that DDB look that gives them the creeps.
Neil Strauss, who wrote the book on getting chicks with dehumanizing tactics, disavowed the whole thing last year. The PUA community has since been left scrambling for ways to keep The Game going—with or without Strauss.
What's a desperate PUA to do when the bar scene isn't cutting it and he's left unsupported? Why, crash something a bit more cerebral, of course.
There's a time and a place to try to pick up chicks as a PUA. Last time I checked, that's never.
Good luck with your future ventures, unnamed pick-up artist. Perhaps you'll pick a meeting that ends up striking your fancy and transform into someone with more passions than this.
