Keep yer pants on guys, pickup is a dead meme. The only one's keeping it alive are guys who are trying to hock guys schlocky tapes, books, and "consulting" services.

I don't take advice on women from guys who wear aviators.

Besides, any woman who goes for a guy like him is not a woman I'm interested in, oddly enough I like them to have personality and a decent self image.

man, the article gets one thing right, and everything else wrong.

Guys- if you want a date, you have to talk to her and ask her/for her number.

rest of it was BS though.

It's ok. You're afraid to talk to them. We get it.

Collared golf shirt, aviators, and most likely the stink of too much cologne. They're like the standard arrogant jerk villain in an '80s movie.

The stink of cologne is a massive turn off. It also says "Hey! I have no sense of smell! I'm defective!" or "My natural body odour smells like limburger cheese sitting in dehumidifier drippings!"

lol KATIE, we don't need advice from women about dating. It sounds like it makes sense, at first, but then it just ends up with men making sammiches for women--typically in the form of back rubs.

Ugh, how sad and pathetic. There's nothing wrong with sex, but these people talk about women as if they were machines, simply programs to be hacked. Honestly, if you need to dress in a stupid costume and get professional help in order to ask somebody for a phone number, you're really messed up. I just keep picturing some sweaty IT guy in khakis, reading a script from his hand, repulsing women much more than if he'd just acted like himself instead of some douchebag.

Even if you managed to meet somebody using one of these idiots' ridiculous programs, what then? You can only do the "act" for so long, and then you've got nothing left. It's no wonder these people have such bad reps, it's just so creepy and pathetic.

*snicker*

Someone pointed out to me on Friday that I was practically tonguing the little bowl of malt vinegar I had (I like vinegar on my fries; sue me). Unsurprisingly later on, my husband's talking about slathering his genitals with some malt vinegar. Sad part... It sounded kinda good. :P

Malt vinegar on fries sounds kinda yummy! Thanks for the gastronomic suggestion, Aidan. Gonna try it.

Oh no, wait. it's because boys and repulsive, evil animals.

One of the best things in this article was this gem of a link to a feminist whargarbl site:

Link (new window)

"In my strong opinion, if you have an agreement with a woman to be sexually faithful to her and you cheat on her, YOU MUST TELL HER YOU CHEATED BEFORE YOU HAVE SEX WITH HER again, otherwise she is NOT able to consent to the sex with you under the conditions of your having violated your agreement with her. If you DO have sex with her after cheating sexually and you do NOT tell her this, in my opinion, you have raped her."

... If you have fantasized about your male partner's brother, friend, cousin, father, doctor or any celebrity male or female or other during the act of sex with your partner, you MUST TELL HIM BEFORE YOU HAVE SEX WITH HIM AGAIN, otherwise he is NOT able to consent to the sex with you under the conditions of your having violated your agreement with him.

Broads, man... :P

i rtfa, and I'm still not enlightened. I was taken/hitched for almost 20 years, and while I was clueless then, I'm downright lost now. I've had more drinks bought for me in the past month than I did the decade before I went off the market, but it's still confusing -- one guy went out of his way to make sure I knew he was married and not eligible for anything other than buying drinks. Very very strange.

So yeah. Guys aren't the only ones confused.

They will become, like Norton, masters in the art of picking up chicks.

Well, I am not well versed in his Jedi ways, but I would think that NOT calling us "chicks" might be a start in the right direction.
 
2011-02-13 11:15:21 AM  
This guy is a second tier tool who got inspired by the movie Hitch,and is now selling half-assed dating advice to third tier tools.

"You want to do the triangle," Gluecksmann advises. "Look at her eye. Look at her other eye. Look at her lips. Then you kind of want to lean in."

If you're using pickup moves that have their own names, you're doing it wrong.

Was that English?

(shrug)

Premise: WELL DUH!

Simple approach: So, do you want to fark or not.

I've got no patience or tact for the dating game any more.

Casual sex or forget it. I'm not looking for my "soul mate".

/predictably I don't get laid much, but that's why I have hands and the intartoobs

//actually know a guy who had the hot UPS girl event. His approach was to ask how she felt about casual sex. The resulting commotion made it clear she felt pretty good about casual sex...the bastard
 
2011-02-13 12:04:19 PM  
In the world of pick-up advice, I'd say this guy is better than most. The best pieces of advice that I read-

Don't wait and plan to go talk to them. Just go do it. If it feels like a plan, they will sniff it out and probably send you packing. And, like bungee jumping, the longer you wait, the higher the jump looks.

The rest of it seems to be giving them some kind of plan for after the initial contact, which is basically against the initial advice. Research shows that women make up their minds whether or not they are interested in less than a minute. So go get that minute over with so if they aren't interested you can cut your losses and go meet someone else. Like marketing, the more you meet, the better your chances. Period.

Just sayin'.
 
2011-02-13 12:08:11 PM  
Like st.theresa's prior posting here, I too am recently single. This whole dating thing, whatever, is confusing as hell to me. Not that posting that here will be of use, meh-feeling pretty crappy about myself, so no doubt the ridicule will begin, pointy knees 'n all, may as well see what the dark side of male driven scorn and derision is like.
