The way i see it is, Ive approached a lot in the past without any intent and it did not go anywhere ( ofcourse there was no escalation ...) Reading about pickup helps naturally social guys who are good at talking to others because they have a library of interactions in the past to draw assumptions/conclusions from.

Also lets take a video. The more number of times you see it ,  you get certain aspects ingrained , get more understanding , insight each time around. In the field you will behave what naturally comes to you, nothing can change that except more field experience.

But what good understanding about pickup/rsd does is that it works on a subconsious level processing information and allows for that edge in decision making at the right time... would you rather not have that edge ? i believe  a large part about this is working on a solid inner game to truly internalize the concepts , that doesnt come from a few field runs it takes time and re-inforcing yourself ( field is also a good place to get positive reinforcement but you have to be in a state to view it as such.)

Hell no, I don't want to fill my mind with clutter and theory, unless it's a video with practical content. How do you know that those aspects are good? Why do you want to ingrain certain aspects? Do you know if they're really valuable to you?

I'll risk getting banned for saying this, but there's no edge from watching RSD videos. Actually, it's negative.

If you want to be inspired, watch the movies I posted in my movie thread and learn how to be CHARMING. Don't fill your head with nebulous and advanced concepts for meeting women. You don't need it. You're better off without.

Stop listening to others and start listening to YOURSELF.

Be a man and stop looking for others to guide you and tell you what to do and how to act. There's nothing to be said about pick-up that has not already been said. And most of you have read that stuff 1000 times by now.

You know what to do. Now do it.

i wonder how many ppl pickup has hurt than helped. this is akin to the idea that self-help implies that you are not enough. as alex says there is no reason why you are not enough. just another paradox to deal with.

This is why you have to balance things out. I spend time doing other things besides pickup, reading self help, spend time with family and friends, do yoga and meditation. Watch comedy and postive and insperational videos, goal setting visualisation. I am going to start improv classes once a week and also do wing chun. Work on other areas improving yourself  and you will not have to think about this stuff much and will become a natraully attractive guy witlh cool stories and insights to share.

That's why I only go on rsd on saturdays and when I got a burning question needed to be asked. Used be on here everyday lurking and over feeding on knowledge
