I used to not read too much into a lot of the PUA stuff. In fact, I was a big "be yourself" kind of guy. For me, it more or less worked, but now I've been experiencing a much talked about phenomenon first hand. Girls love guys with serious girlfriends. I don't get it, but it makes you reevaluate things. Now that I'm in a pretty serious relationship, something that's never happened before is happening kind of frequently. Just the other weekend a random girl at a bar walked straight up to me and tried to chat me up all night and got uncomfortably close even after I casually mentioned having a girlfriend. The crazy thing is, she wasn't the only one that night. Another girl- when my girlfriend was away for a bit- wanted to come over late at night to watch a movie even though she had work early the next morning. Take it as you will, but to me, and I assume most dudes, that's an open invitation for slam time. I've been eyed and smiled at on the subway, basically groped by friends that have never shown any interest before, and so and so forth. None of this has ever happened before I started my current relationship. There really is something to this "I don't care" attitude in getting girls after all.
