    Default What is Pickup to you?

    ok after making a post i wanted to start a thread of the reasons people joined the community and what pick up is to you!

    Ok so im sure many of you reading this have gotten advice from me or has read some of my posts. I seem knowledgeable but im not all that.

    The reason i joined the community in the first place was to have the women in my life that i wanted there and to date the girls i wanted. I got into this after a breakup and i was tired of girls choosing me. So i decided to learn to be better with women to get the girls i wanted. Yes on the back burner was the idea of sleeping with hot women, but im 21. what 21 year old guy doesnt think of that .

    Pick up to me is a lifestyle. Its something we learn to get out of our comfort zones and learn to enjoy ourselves. Yes women is a big factor in pick up. But when you stop being goal oriented, you will be surprised how successful you will be as a PUA. Some people think of it as sleeping with tons of very attractive women, but i see it as getting high quality people into my life that i want there. Thats also why one of the first things i learned and now teach to other guys is inner game. They need to learn about themselves and how to be confident and comfortable no matter where they are and just have fun. So in the end, i dont see pick up as a trade or job, i see it as an experience of a lifetime. After this i know im going to end up on my death bed saying something silly like "Damn, that was one hell of a ride. The people i affected during this life will hopefully pass this on and live life the way they want! Cheers and one to my dead homies :P"(had to throw that in cause i know i would say some silly stupid shit like that!

    Lets hear what you guys think!!
    Cheers

    oh and dont worry. i want everybodty to post to this. i wont lie, if i did this back when i started it would have said something about sleeping with really hot women and just having the best time at parties. but my mentaliity has definitely changed since then. I just want to enjoy my life and this is totally helping. i wont lie, wild crazy sex is an outcome but thats not my goal!(sometimes):P

    Dude, being 21 as well I can't help but get the feeling you've been doing this a hell of a lot longer than me! lol. Found out about The Game (Niel Strauss' book) about half a year ago. Never did have gf's when younger because I always thought 'screw that, all I can see is people getting hurt, turning weird and ignoring mates, and generally getting into a lot more hassle than anything good'. Then, at 18 I got my first gf. In 9 months I found my first love and first broken heart...problem was (and I only realised this a long time after) that I had changed into a pussy desperate for her attention. Got another gf a couple of months later, and that ended with me being cheated on after two months. I was a total mess after that, didn't know myself at all. Niel's book saved me, but it took some time lol.

    At first the things I learnt from the book and web sent me on a mission to shag all round me. I wanted to pull every night, treated girls like shit, and generally was just out for revenge on every female for the way they could make a me feel. Didn't feel much better for it though after a while. Then I read the the final part of Neiel's book, when he meets the blonde who he falls for. his realisations spoke out to me. So i calmed down and changed my tune, as I realised my morals and standards had went out the window. At the minute, I'm just finding myself, but having fun doing it!

    Pick-up hasn't helped me to get a lot of quality people in my life so far if I'm honest, but then again I havn't really put myself out there with people apart from girl I want lol. I have yet to experience the movement from being goal-oriented and all into a lifestyle like crob here lol. That's probably down to not focusing on inner game too much, I've always been more focused sets for picking up chicks etc.

    Ok, babbling on trying to figure out what pick-up is to me here! lol. And you know what...I don't even know what it is to me! It's helped me feel better, get girls I want, be more confident in my thoughts, decisions and gut instincts...in a way I suppose I'd have to agree with crob on the lifestyle thing as it helps you not just to pick-up girls, but also to be more of a man in the life you lead...ok, think I've got it here lol

    - Pick-up is the challenges we set ourselves to become bigger, better and stronger men. It gives us the ability to choose our own destinies.

    very well said. and ok i know its pretty much not a pick up thing. but im probably the only one on this site that has not read "The Game". haha i know its not the usual but when i first started with learning game was my first post on here and inntroducing myself. to tell you the truth i have not even reached the year mark of being in the community. my anniversary is coming up though . lol

    but well said! it does take some time to get over the initial thought of starting here in PUA and fucking tons of girls. but once you have gotten that out of ur system you will find it more just to be an experience and the stuff you learned helps you with women!

    This is a good thread and a good question to ask.

    The reason I got into PU is simple choice. I read The Game a few months after a divorce and I saw it as way to help move on. I went out learned, got some great experience and then learned that there is much more to life then a HB10 in my bed. PU enabled me to learn more about myself then I ever would have imagined. It taught me to be more confident in myself. It also taught me to be more self reliant. Taking away what other people think about me allowed me to become the person I choose to be, not what society or others want me to be. It’s made me a better person in many ways, im better at my job, im better in my relationships, and im living the life that I want to live. I say it all the time on here but PU is more about yourself then anything

    One thing I have learned about the PUA lifestyle is that it shares some commonalities with martial arts (another hobby of mine).

    One thing you learn in martial arts is that once you become skilled, you don't feel the need to fight every little prick who asks for it. The mere knowledge that you could kick his ass is often enough to not let him get to you.

    1) The PUA world is similar. Once you gain some practice and experience, you stop talking female jerks so seriously. You relax and enjoy gaming. It becomes something fun that you aren't stressed about. It becomes about process instead of end results. Since all of us have to spend time in social circles, and meeting women is a way of life, being a PUA removes some of the most stressful parts of life and thus makes life way more enjoyable.

    2) The next similarity is that they both take a lot of practice, and no matter how good you are, you can always improve.

    3) If you are scared spitless, you can get a long way on guts alone.

    4) Finally, if you get cocky, you start to loose your edge.
