How I Became a Famous Pickup Artist : Part 2

This is a continuation of the story, How I Became a Famous Pickup Artist Part 1. If you haven't read that already, you should do so before reading this article.

Papa was notorious for being in contact with everyone in the pickup scene. I couldn't blame him, either - he was the business side of "Real Social Dynamics", a company that taught seminars and workshops to aspiring players. Not surprisingly, he was the only person at the seminar that I knew.

In order to extract every last precious second out of my experience, I had gotten on the earliest flight to Chicago that I could book. I called Papa when I arrived at the hotel at 10am. I could hardly make out his voice. He'd been out in the clubs until very late and was still sleeping.

Learning Pickup Will Change Your Life

On Striving For Happiness

Disclaimer: Pickup is not some weird skill where guys try to sleep with tons of girls; pickup is intended to merely widen your dating life and allow you to meet the girl of your dream. Some guys use it to slay as many girls as possible; however, that’s not the point.

If you ever tried cold approach pickup (where you go up to a random girl and try to get her to go on a date with you) then you know how scary it is. The first time I cold approached in a mall my hands shook with an intense fear while the girl gave me her phone number. For the first couple of months I suffered from severe approach anxiety in the club. The thought of approaching a stranger seemed horrifying. Each time I approached a random girl my heart beat so fast. It was nerve-racking.

It’s kind of weird, despite the popularity of pickup no one ever cold approaches really. I stumbled upon the book The Game when I was 17 I believe. The book changed my life. I thought I found a holy grail which would change my life forever. 17 year old Liam finished this book faster than he ever read a book in his life. The book helped my confidence tremendously, but I never approached a single girl outside of my social circle. Years went by and I always dreamed of being a master pickup-artist; to develop the ability to make any girl fall in love with you.

I used what little “tactics” I knew to land two girlfriends over 4 years and to go on a half dozen dates. Slowly, but surely I developed more confidence in myself as time went on. Then my last relationship fizzled out. I broke up with Lisa 4 times before finally ending it. I wanted to become better with women and meet the girl of my dreams. I was tired of settling.
