    I'm sure I'm wrong, but this just popped into my head.

    1. "You are the prize."
    2. PUA books/courses/instruction exists to help guys get chicks
    3. Therefore, guys are modifying their behavior to get chicks
    4. Therefore, guys are actively seeking out chicks
    5. Therefore, the chick is valuable enough to the guy to cause him to change things about himself in order to get her
    6. Therefore, the chick is the prize

    The only thing that changes is how the guy seeks her out. A no longer buys her shit and flatters her. Instead, he treats her like an ass and he gets laid. That is his goal. She is the prize.
























    Fuck that shit. I am the prize.

    lol if I was thinking that way I'd be a virgin forever..

    Lets face it, i dont really smile or hang out at clubs or parties. Not that I am sad or anything, but its not my thing.. That is, until I really get to know a person. Maybe it could be percieved differently by others, I don't know.


    Great paradox of eating: to survive you need to kill :eek3:

    lol.ot...

    This would be true if someone was trying to become like a PUA in order to get some specific girl he's pining over. The whole point though is to avoid that sort of thinking - to instead make yourself appealing to lots of women and be able to pick and choose among them. No one particular woman, then, is "the prize"; you can take or leave any one of them, whereas from their point of view you are unique and in demand.

    That the goal is getting women in general is obvious and not really relevant.

    its important to know your own self worth, and believe it, just as it is important to know when theres a good thing worth working towards.


    they arent mutually exclusive, are they?

    You need to stop thinking like that. It's not attractive to women. :p

    you'll find her...and when you do you'll be in heaven. (she may be a gum chewer though! what will you do? :noes:) hehehe - j/k

    My bf and i share a sense of humor and dorkiness and it's the best thing ever! I'll tell my friends something and they think i'm stupid. I tell my boyfriend and he'll laugh for 5 minutes or be like, I was just thinking about that.

    You will go through a lot of 'eureka' moments if you spend any time in the seduction community.

    You forgot that this is the mindset which causes the guy to seek knowledge. This is exactly what has to change to be happy/successful. The goal should change so that it's not to get the chick but to be the person we want to be, where we want to be and with the people we want to be with.
