 I'm finding more guys getting into it. 

But I saw this movie with my sister last night, and I LMAO'd at this scene...

It seems that Hollywood is picking up on pickup. 

The Movie is "17 Again! with Zac Efron.

Its that the PU guys are getting less creepy and more "normal." They no longer seek guys from the internet or their l-a-i-r to go out with but they have "friends" now. They dont talk technique because they know they ahve what it takes to bang a chick.

Also, it has reached the point where EVERY DUDE has heard of game. Really. They have all read the book and gotten emails in their inboxes.

I also think its that, the community only goes so far and there are so many other alternative things to maintain in life so longevity is hard to maintain. Also, met a couple of community guys before. Likely, wont meet much more. I found a bunch had excuses, no shows, talk out their ass, and I am better off solo. Even with some of my mates, they disappear cause a girl comes into their life. You don't hear from them till she cheats or dumps them.

ThaT RIDE OR DIE HOMMIE IS HARD TO COME BY. I am fortunate to have so many friends all over the world but, still, the onus is on self. No need to rely on this guy or that guy. It is what it is./

I don't think it's a healthy lifestyle to pursue pickup long term. Maybe for a year, maybe two max. But think about the lifestyle: staying out late until 2, 3 or 4 AM several times a week, dealing with drunk people, many on the defensive. You cannot deal with that on a long term basis without becoming quite strange or getting sick of it.

As far as the pickup guys I've met, the number of guys I respect who are in the game is very close to zero. The number of pickup guys I merely like is close to zero. Very few of them seem to have a solid career track, and a lot of them are so immature and socially awkward they simply have no idea how strange they truly are.

And yet, here I am, seemingly with something to learn, and something to contribute. I'm drawn back to this life even though I know it's not healthy, in any way.

I think it is because everyone knows about...litterally everyone. I am glad RSD came along and evolutionized p/u. While the original stuff worked in its day it is far outdated and so unhealthy.

Not only is it evaporating, but were left with a generation of amogs. If you look at boards a couple of years ago the tone was much more optimistic and helpful. Very few guys made PU work for them, the rest have created an atmosphere of victim poor-me and intense player-hating. Maybe it's me getting older but I feel the only thing you run into nowadays is drunk agressive amogs in bars.

What I know is that if we were in the same club you wouldn't guess I am posting on a pick up forum. 


This and what SirKonstantine wrote.  I think it has more to do with a shift of the "comunity".  There are many things at play here.  One of the major ones being it's not all nerds who found out about it on four chan.  Since it's gone more mainstream, more mainstream people are doing it.  When that happens it looks and IS more natural.  I've seen one old school MM guy out and it was painfully obvious what he was doing.  However when I go out I don't do it to pick up.  I do it for fun.  So I'm out with a group of friends some girls some guys.  We dance drink and joke together most of the night.  I might open several sets but you wouldn't notice because it just happens in the flow of things (like on the way to or from the bar/bathroom etc.).  We don't talk about pick up or focus on it because... well... why?!

If you want nerd in their lairs who feel superior for knowing the magic bullets then you can still find that.  They are becoming less common though as a whole and as a portion of the "community".  I really believe that it is just the game it's self changing as are the people doing it.  Just recently I had a normal friend who didn't know I do this stuff grab me as the bars closed and say lets go pick up girls on the street before we go home.  Then it came out that he was in to this stuff but I never would have known otherwise.  Also recently had a friend do the most hardcore AMOG block ever to evaporate a cockblocking faggot for me.  There is no way he wings like that without either studying himself or going out a lot with someone who does.  Neither of us have brout it up because who cares.  We have fun when we are out together and that tends to lead us towards getting laid.

 boy meets girl, boy fucks girl. Would a caveman use pick up material or would he just know what to do?

what RSD does is getting the layers of and let men be men again, it's a difficult job and I am glad i found it

I don't view RSD as pick up, I believe RSD plays on a whole different level. If it was pick up, I would never dive into it
