Re: 37, recently single, no local friends, no pick-up experience
Ok, let me give you guys the best advice I have ever read/heard with regards to building social circles and even PUA.
ALL men have a universal commonality: WOMEN!
What does this have to do with your problem you ask? It's simple, go out and be social with guys. Don't worry about pickup, just worry about meeting other guys you can hangout with. And the easiest way to do this? Talk about women. If a hottie passes by, turn to the guy beside you at the bar and pointer her out to him.
I've met so many guys that I can sarge with or just grab a beer with this way. The other pointer I'd give is that men eat compliments up like you wouldn't believe. Guys don't get complimented ever, so when they do they're all over it. Tell a guy you like his shirt and you want to know where he got it. Now your in.
The key is to build up your social circles and then start worrying about pick up. It's really easy, but it can be nerve racking to even go talk to another guy at first. But trust me, it's simple and a great way to build your social life.
