Do those books like “The Game” really help you pick up women? I recently watched that show “The Pick Up Artist” and that guy Mystery seemed like a big tool. Do girls really like that crap?
Look, I don't think any of that would ever work on me but that's not to say all women are immune to those techniques. I loved the book "The Game" but the sense I got from reading it was that the majority of the girls those guys were able to get were foreign, quite young, and tended to hang out in clubs on Sunset Boulevard. That isn't necessarily the most sophisticated bunch of ladies you're going to come across.
But I think what "The Game" and those seduction teachers prove is that women do respond to confidence; we like it when a man seems able to hold his own and engage us because it suggests an innate kind of strength. When girls are younger and slightly less mature, they also tend to like guys who aren’t as good for them or don't treat them particularly well (my personal theory about that is that the media perpetuates this idea that love isn’t worth having if it isn't hard-won; relationships are, indeed, work, but getting to the relationship shouldn't be where all the challenges come up).
The more girls grow up, however, the more attracted they are to men who treat them well. Being confident doesn't have to involve being a jerk, wearing ridiculous hats or slyly insulting girls just so you can remain in the power position.
I've been losing my clothes lately and well, what's the best way to try out exhibitionism? And where is the best place to meet a level-minded girl into the same stuff?
If by exhibitionism, you mean having sex in public places, the best thing you can probably do is get in a relationship with a girl and share with her the fact that this is something you want to try (keep in mind that you can get busted for public lewdness, though). Of course you can always try posting something on, say, Craig's List, about how you're seeking out a girl just as into stripping and getting down in movie theater or airplane bathroom as you are but your chances of having that work out are probably slim to none.
If you just want to experience what it's like to be nude in places where you would typically be clothed, there are all sorts of beaches, resorts, colonies -- even yoga classes -- you can check out. Whether the girl you try to ensnare to experience this with you is level-minded may be its own challenge. Girls who like to drop trou on a dime don't tend to always be the most stable (exhibit A: Britney Spears).
