You might wan't to save that kind of talk for the sex and sexuality forum. Whatever your into my man. :shrug:
You know, like the placebo effect. This "pickup artist" stuff isn't "basic psychology" it's just a bunch of BS. But it gives a shy loser the confidence to actually talk to a girl if he thinks he has some sort of system and he's a pickup artist (just like the feather gave Dumbo the confidence to fly, even though it wasn't really magic). :lol: It's kind of idiotic, really.
uhm, I said the same thing, Only smarter and more concise. :shrug:
but know, it's not a "placebo" effect. It's teaching a system, that may or may not work, based on psychology.
You said precisely the opposite of what I said, and in your second sentence you even seem to be aware of the fact.
The system is not based on psychology. Maybe pseudo-psychology. But it is absurd to think of this as some sort of truly methodical approach. What I'm saying is that this ridiculous jargon is just a bunch of gibberish that accomplishes nothing in and of itself. What you're saying is that the gibberish is "based on psychology." :rofl: but yeah, I guess it's all just the "same thing" to you.
:shrug: are you really getting personal over a pick up poster? How lame. :lol:
So I guess the moral of the story is nerds have finally figured out how to do something that confident guys have known all along. And like nerds always do, they totally ruined it.
Personal? So far I've only been critical of people who use the pickup artist technique, I never directed any criticism toward you personally.... waitaminute...:shock:
you said:...:rofl: but yeah, I guess it's all just the "same thing" to you.
Yeah, I don't use that kind of malarky. And I don't want the kind of weak-minded person that it would work on.
I have to agree. I've never understood the nervousness behind talking to women. I've never picked up a woman from a bar or any similar setting (I prefer to be friends first THEN date) but I dont really see a reason for the anxiety.Yeah, I don't use that kind of malarky. And I don't want the kind of weak-minded person that it would work on. Also, I have nothing but scorn for guys who are so socially inept that they'd consider stooping to this behavior.
Do you REALLY want your efforts to find a mate be on the same level as a sales person?It is NOT a placebo. Look, there are MANY conventions monthly on how to become a better sales person. Management spends a lot of money on training their sales staff. it is NOT a placebo.
Sure no problem. Your position is the opposite of mine, but you claim that you said the "same thing." It was a dig at your for your poor debate skills, it had nothing to do with your use of pickup artistry.
