    I can't believe that shit actually happened. It's pretty bizzare stuff. I kind of pictured Mystery being a Billy Walsh (from entourage) type character but in reality he is creepier than I had imagined.

    This book kind of inspires me to rework myself. I don't need to learn how to be a PUA, but getting numbers would be a good start to getting a girlfriend.

    Still, who would pay so much money to learn how to pick up girls? :rofl:

    Mystery charges $10k a day for lessons now, according to his newsletter.

    No clue, but The Game was much more than I expected

    It's an amazing book I would recommend it to anyone.

    I'm sure any man who goes from being pussy-whipped by a bitch to nailing 9's and 10's left and right would consider it money well-spent.

    Agreed. As I said in the other thread, if it was a magic pill, it'd be worth it, and I'd pay it.

    I can't say whether Juggler actually pulls girls on the same level as Neil and Mystery. If he does then he's by far the best since his approach is the art of being normal.

    On the other hand I guess I can see the appeal of being weird

    David DeAngelo's C&F stuff can backfire alot. Also, the girl out there have now heard all these lines such as "let me ask your opinion on a jealous GF, etc etc,". Their response is like "oh no...you been reading 'the game' also?"

    Lines are worthless.

    Its not what you say, its how you say it.

    If your body language, eye contact, and voice tone sucks, the best "line" in the world has zero chance of success.

    You internal beliefs are what is most important. Fix those and you will be well on your way to achieving the success you desire.

    That's too extreme, lines are a piece of the puzzle just like body language. Also, sometimes a "line" comes packaged with the right attitude in your mind, so delivering it includes the body language etc.

    I agree, but if your body language, eye contact, and voice tone are proper, you can still get attraction without the lines and gimmicks.

    A lot of that depends on the environment you are in as well. Its all situational.

    I should have said:

    "Line are worthless UNTIL you fix your body language, eye contact, and voice tone."

    I've strayed away from Style/Mystery Method and am much more comortable with David D and Juggler's stuff. But honestly, I'm quickly becoming a fan of Tyler Durden and the stuff coming out of RSD. The frame those guys possess is completely nuts and inspiring.

    Lines are good when they are congruent with your personality and demeanor. They serve as a way to lead an interaction, nothing more.

    David D himself says the whole concept of cocky and funny has been taken out of proportion and shouldn't be seen as the quintessential tool that it has been touted as.

    That being said, CF will only backfire if you go completely overboard and forget to calibrate. I've yet to see somebody who isn't bustin girls balls consistently attract good looking women.

    Yeah, I've seen/listened to everything you posted there, plus more. David D and Tyler (and Juggler for that matter) are great imo because they stress that it's attitude and personal frame rather the specific words/techniques that will bring success.

    Fuck going into an interaction and telling yourself "ok, now I'm in A2 and need to..." whatever. Unconscience competence ftw.

    giz, has your game improved since you've started listening to the various guys you mentioned?

    If it motivates him to work on his game... does that count?

    I'm an approach coach for one of the big companies... won't say which one... and I was invited to attend his strippers and hired guns seminar... and I will probably be helping out on his las vegas bootcamp.

    Along with mystery I chilled with lovedrop, matador, and blitz.

    Cocky and funny is a great way to be, and it never backfires. Ever. Fortunately, I've always been "C&F", and all I've done is turn it up with great success. The women who don't like it are the boring ones I want nothing to do with.
