This was posted on the twitter account of a major shopping mall in the GTA. Regardless whether you are familiar with Toronto, you guys might find this interesting:
This is what happens when guys pay $5 for botched in field training by PUA wannabes. Consequently, some of the women that witnessed guys doing approaches over and over again in front of a forever 21 did some online digging and found some PUA groups on sites like Meetup and Reddit. Members of these groups would post times and places for upcoming sarges. These are publicly viewable groups btw. Upon their request, these Toronto meetup groups were taken down. A few local Facebook groups were shut down as well.
This is a related discussion on a Toronto blog from yesterday as well:
Something weird is going on at the Eaton Centre... : toronto
A couple takeaways that come to mind are:
Respect women and respect the game. Doing the same +20 approaches in the exact same location is going to draw unnecessary attention. In a day game setting, when you approach a woman and say something like " hey, I noticed you from across the store and I had to come talk to you. What's your name?" It has to come from a place of authenticity. You need to actually feel that way in order for it to feel genuine otherwise she won't buy it. Especially when she just saw you approach several other women with the same line. I'm a proponent of going out often and meeting tons of women but understand this. If you approach her from a place of inauthenticity your are going to get inauthentic results. Obviously everyone has to start somewhere but don't ruin this community for everyone else. If you approach a girl in front of Forever 21, do your next approach somewhere else. Don't keep doing your day game in the same spot a million times. Mix it Up.
Beware of joining sarging groups where the administrator/PUA guru asks you for X amount of $$$ each night to sarge with them. Do your research first. There are a lot of scammers out there. Also, this should stand as a clear example of why you don't post times and places for group sarges online. There are people that are trolling the internet for these kind of posts.
Anyhow, I look forward to reading comments and see what everyone thinks.
