Does pick-up really work?
The answer is ‘yes… and no’.
At its core, pick-up is a way of being an engaging and fun conversationalist – the kind of guy who makes a woman’s life a little more fun for a while. This is almost always going to have a higher success rate when it comes to meeting and hooking up with women than appearing boring, nervous or desperate.
The things that pick-up presents as tricks are really just ways to overcome fear and shyness, make a good impression, and get some great flirting going.
It’s a way of teaching men how to entertain women, to give women something they want, and to hopefully get something back in return because, NEWSFLASH, women like to be entertained too.
Everything that pick-up teaches men to do to get laid is done to entertain and interest us – so both parties gain something if they end up in bed.
