Re: How should I respond if a woman asks "what do you do?"
First respond with one of the fun answers, lots of the time they won't even pursue what you actually do.
If they persist, then it's all about frame control (like everything else in PUA). Are you unemployed or are you currently looking for your dream job because you refuse to settle? Are you short on work or are you an entrepeneur trying to get his foot in the door? Are starving because no one will hire you or are you an artist who has chosen to experience poverty for the sake of creativity?
Their perception depends on how you frame your answer!
