Early in my seduction career, I studied everything I could from the guys I considered the "top guys" who'd come before me. But I especially focused on the guys who really good were but who didn't know how to market themselves... essentially, the hidden gems of seduction.
What I realized was that the mainstream school of thought on picking up women was almost as dogmatic as mainstream society itself; while mainstream society believed in:
The pickup community at the time I entered also had its own tenets, chiefly:
- Follow the 3-second rule of approaching
- Seductions must unfold over 7+ hours
- You must be impressive and show higher value
- You must follow a "method" - certain steps and procedures, routines, etc.
- Fast seductions were "fools mates" and only happened with "easy" women
Which to me seemed a definite step up and an improvement from what mainstream society preaches, but... it still seemed a bit too limiting and contrived.
Why do you need some complicated procedure to "show your value" to women? Why do you have to go through some whole song and dance just to get girls?
I ended up searching out unconventional teachers and older guys in the community who'd largely vanished from the main forums and hang outs, convinced I could learn the things from them that the rest of the devotees of the social and seductive arts seemed not to know.
And by and large, I did.
And one of the greatest lessons I learned from these studies was how to find out the answer to the question "what does she want?" using a forgotten technique its originator called "eliciting values."
I'm going to teach you that technique today.
