    Default Friends who don't believe PUA skills work?

    Do you guys have any? I have two in which don't believe it at all and hate that I spend my free time reading up on it. They both have GF's. One believes It's his looks that got him the girl and the other watches too many movies. I never really put what I've learned to the test, but when ever I talk to another female I use some of the stuff I learned for the sake of practice and to make it easier for myself in the long run. I normally like to stay away from these two friends because I don't need that kind of negativity and critcism and would not want to feel like a know it when telling them what they do wrong.

    Lots of people don't believe in PUA stuff, or look down on it, or think it's for losers, or dorks, etc. or people that have no social skills. It's a very dumb closed minded way to think. It shows that you have no room to grow, and don't care about improving an important life skill. I think you are doing the right thing. Remove yourself from the negativity and focus on improving yourself -- on whatever dimension, including PUA.
    The world is your matrix. You control the strings.

    The unthinking masses don't like to be unplugged. You can't force people to see something they don't believe exists.
    Caveat: Just because I feel a certain way about my journey doesn't mean you should feel the same about yours.

    If you can't say that you would rather die than not do it; you don't want it bad enough.

    I don't talk to my friends about it, if they see me doing stuff and N closing girls and are interested ill tell them a little. It will take them full on begging me for info before I let them in on anything real. Why? cause I'm a jerk? No...well a little... more for me HA!!! But no, it took me a long time to decide that I wanted to change my life, I made the decision for myself and no one else could make it for me. Once I have a friend that makes it to that point ill let them in.

    As far as the negativity goes...yea, big time. My friends are negative about picking up girls in general, they aren't against it they just don't have the motivation or support that will make me a better PUA. If I ever ask advice from my friends about how im doing with the girl or how i look or whatever they usually are too insecure with themselves to be helpful and will put me down. They just aren't constructive. Since I noticed that I don't ask for their help or their opinions.

    This is EXACTLY like Plato's Allegory of the Cave right now. For those of you who don't know what it is, it's Plato's belief that what we view in society is obscured, and that those who see the truth will be punished and exiled.

    I have two friends who I hang out with that don't believe that my stuff works. They see me becoming more and more successful with women, yet they think my stuff, especially negs, are really bad.

    I'm not really complaining about it. If everyone in the world were successful with women, there would be no need for this art. I often view my attempt to get at women as a game. Before coming across the idea of transforming myself into a pickup artist, I always thought of the game as having unfair rules and just being rigged to cause me to fail. Now, I'm just simply changing the rules so I can run the game I want it to.
