Pick up artists. PUAs. It’s a very loaded term at this point in time. When you first heard it years ago, perhaps after reading Neil Strauss’ The Game, you wanted to be a part of it. You wanted to join this secret seduction community that gained men seemingly limitless power when it came to meeting women. What is the secret society of pickup artists? Does such a thing exist? What might you get out of it? Keep reading, you’re going to learn the real dirt on this much storied community.
What Is a Pickup Artist?
A pickup artist or “PUA” is a somewhat antiquated term for men who want to learn how to be more effective with women. The term crested around the time of Neil Strauss’ The Game, as well as The Pickup Artist TV series on VH1. Pickup artists use well-developed techniques to start conversations with women, get them interested and move forward, whatever that might mean for them.
Are Pickup Artists a Secret Society?
Neil Strauss’ book The Game: Penetrating the Secret Society of Pickup Artists kind of blew the lid off this one, as did the aforementioned television show. What was once an underground, closely knit community grew to become something much, much bigger. Something more accessible to the average man. The pickup artist had, it seems, gone mainstream. Everyone and their grandmother knows what a PUA is now. The days of PUAs as secret society are behind us.
What Does a Pickup Artist Do?
A pickup artist is a master of learned charisma. Everyone knows what charisma is, even if they can’t define it. However, most people don’t know that charisma is something that any man can learn – it basic PUA Training. It’s certainly not an easy skill to learn, but it is something that any man can learn with enough blood, sweat and tears.
How Do I Learn Charisma?
There are a number of ways that you can start learning charisma. StyleLife Academy sells a number of instructional videos that you can study at home. You can go to one of our boot camps and learn up close and personal from one of our coaches. If you’re so inclined, you can pick up a copy of Neil Strauss’ book The StyleLife Challenge, which is effectively a workbook that guides you through a 30-day transformation to bring the principles of learned charisma into your life. Whatever your learning style is, there’s a way for you to start learning charisma starting today.
Will Everyone Get Something Out of Learning From Pickup Artists?
Put simply, yes. Social skills are something that everyone needs to learn. What’s more, no one is born with them. Even the men who first pioneered the concept of the pickup artist had to learn social charisma at one point or another.
The difference between their path and yours is that they had to hack through a jungle blindfolded to get at what they learned. When you go through StyleLife Academy or some other kind of social coaching, you’re getting the insight of a man who has already been down that path before.
It’s going to get you where you want to be a lot faster and without nearly as much of the mess.
Where Should I Start?
Reading Neil Strauss’ book The Game is a great place to start. You’ll learn what pickup artists methods can do for you and what they can’t. You’ll learn what Neil found out on his way to creating the Stylelife Academy, something that takes the old PUA routines to the next level in a PUA Bootcamp. You’ll get a flavor for how learning charisma can help you to take your life to the next level, with women, with friends and in your professional life.
OK. Where Do I Go From There?
Where you go from there is largely up to you. How are you most comfortable learning? How do you retain information the best? By answering these questions, you’ll know what’s the best way for you to continue your social education.
We will say this, however: Nothing, and we mean nothing, can compare to the hands-on training you get when you sign up for a Stylelife Academy boot camp. It’s worth its weight in gold to try and get you to the next level in every aspect of your life.
Everyone wants to be better with women and lead a better social life. The difference between you and them is that you now have in your hands a way to start making it happen.
