    Default Girlfriend is reading "The Game" - What do I do?

    First, everything is great with this girl. Together almost a year; full commitment on both sides; keep her emotionally and sexually connected and satisfied. Full respect, value is high, keeping it interesting, etc.

    She's loves social dynamics..have had many great conversations about people and interactions, etc. She recently stumbled onto and began reading "The Game" and is enjoying it. I've read it, of course. And I know, not for nothing, between the lines, it's reasonable to believe anyone can use the concepts for any area of life really. So it's not a bad thing really, buuuut....it is pretty revealing....

    Now my gut says don't react, explore the topics with her in conversation, understand how she's digesting the info, and don't be concerned. Which is what I'm doing.

    However, there are experts on this forum, and there may be people who have had their GF explore PUA, etc. I don't know. So why not ask you guys....

    Any of you experience this? Have any advice? Things to keep an eye out for?

    Otherwise, I'll just continue non-reaction and move along as is. Seems to be fine.

    I can say from personal experience that you're in the clear. If she's showing genuine curiosity and interest in the game, then let her be with the book and don't worry about it. In fact, it may make for some really interesting conversations. Give it a shot and see what happens

    Actually no, didn't use anything from the book. I've used some different pieces here and there though; like personality tests (which I typically teed up as something cool I just read online) or funny lines to keep interest through text. Meeting her was honestly an accident> two people stuck in the same place at the same time. Didn't use one line. Exchanged numbers and text our way to a first date. Great ever since.

    She does know I've read that stuff though; I was pretty honest about studying social interaction and human behavior, which is true. The Game is part of it, but I think of it as a much bigger thing: I've studied "power", "confidence", etc. It's great for my profession actually.

    I don't really see the big deal. I've had many experiences with this and there IS a bad turning point when it gets too far. But it's usually way off in the distance.

    They initially think it's just a cute hobby that guys learn a couple of things in order to talk to a girl. Some girls get a little deeper and find out how heavy it actually is. This can be dangerous. But all you have to do is play dumb. Don't tell her any techniques you've used on her unless it was before you started your relationship. No one....and I mean NO ONE...likes to feel manipulated. The only time they accept it if it was a time where BOTH of you got what you wanted. Not you trying to get something from her and you ended up making her feel like crap about herself.

    Eventually she'll get bored and you won't have to worry about that anymore.

    I have a book called "The Natural" which is about pick up techniques. The girl who I was dating found and read it. I told her that you can learn a bunch of things by reading this book but it's up to you that how you would use it. Those skills can be used in either a good way or a bad way, but I used it in a good way and found you! Also mention that having those skills will help men with having good relationship with women. Women understand it.
