    Default The Pick Up Artist

    `
    Well that show was incredibly lol-worthy and now there's gonna be a season two.

    Do guys actually watch this show and take mental notes?

    I do not believe you can manufacture charm, charisma or social sincerity, (obviously) and I think that these things are what the show, or should I say "Mystery", (gag me with a jagged spoon) are trying to teach these clueless men.

    Any thoughts?

    Also, Mystery reeks of sheer Geekdom and the fact that he tries so hard to conceal this fact makes him seem all the more pathetic!!!

    I might be biased because I do not mind geeks, and in fact have found myself attracted to quite a few of them but I am absolutely repulsed by phonies!!!

    If a guy with the name "Mystery" can pick up chicks, I guess he must be pretty good.

    I only know the trailer for the Robert Downey Jr. movie "The Pick-Up Artist" video release is on 75% of all late 80s VHS tapes.

    Not all of us, people are that stupid, I've especially seen a trend on shows on channels that are supposed to be playing music, but have since stopped to air stupid reality shows. Most of the contestants are idiots, or as I've been told, acting to like idiots to become famous.

    The only person that I recall this actually working for, becoming famous and staying famous, is New York, but that ***** is fucking crazy.

    Unbelievably, I have had raging debates with some guys over the effectiveness of this, lol. Some of them think it works magic. I would point out that any success may be because they went outside, had some confidence and approached women.

    We don't get that show in Canada, but we have an equivalanet called "Keys to the VIP" that I havn't really seen much. I'm not really sure if it's the same at all though.

    I agree with this wholeheartedly. You can see when people are doing this, too, usually, and it's quite sad. You can tell who is charming out of confidence and who is charming out of insecurity.

    I believe this as well. You can't manufacture a magic trick to work on all women.. but, sometimes, guys *thinking* they're better equipped for the situation could bring out the confidence necessary to actually have a conversation that would make the girl take note of the guy. In this case, mayhap I could see people swearing by it.. but they'd still be swearing by ignorance of what's really going on entirely.

    In my head, I can just picture, at best, the lines and practiced "tricks of the trade" working long enough for the girl to notice that she's talking to a phony that's thinking of her as an object or pet needing tricked into. I'm a human being, and I'm capable of making decisions as well.. saying things in a certain rhythm isn't going to mesmorize me.

    I'm reminded of that movie Hitch a bit on this subject.. I don't think there's anything wrong with giving a man a tool to be confident in himself.. but I do think it's wrong to think there's a precise method of 'tricking' girls into taking a fancy to you.
