Do you know what that means? If you’re Hawaiian, doesn’t it mean flower? That’s not the PUA though that I’m talking about it. I always keep my eye out for identities that fascinate me. But do a Google Search for PUA, and you will find that it stands for Pick Up Artist.
There is a whole industry built around becoming a pick up artist. It’s pretty insane. There is a dictionary and forums. You can sign up for classes and courses to become a better pick up artist. I want to write more about this identity. I’m interested in the psychology of someone that want’s to be a PUA. I gotta read more about it.

Isnt it all about undesireable men raising their chances of having sex with attractive women? As a women with a superficial knowledge of PUAs- its kind of pervy.
You would totally have a more authoritative perspective on this. I can’t believe how much money people would pay to get a coach or take a class. So would you say that all PUA’s are undesirable? I actually listened to a podcast by one of the coaches and they were talking about this Gentlemen PUA vibe – not the undesirable kind.
Thanks for the comment. I definitely want to understand it. It’s an interesting identity to me.
I am an aspiring PUA, I consider myself somewhat attractive… but when it comes to women, physical attraction doesn’t mean the same thing that it means for most guys. I used to get so tongue tied around women and never knew what to say… As I have been getting further and further into learning about the “Pickup Artist” ways, I have noticed that other parts of my life have been enriched by the experience as well. My job interviews are better, my communication with strangers has improved, and I no longer feel anxiety when in social situations where I know few people in the room.
So you’re developing your PUA identity? Tell me more about that. How do you develop that?
Through practice, first you learn about what really triggers attraction in females, then you develop a system for hitting those triggers one after another during your interaction with her. Almost everything can be deconstructed down to an exact science and exploited the same way. First I use “openers” such as “Hey guys, I need a female opinion on something… What’s the difference between hot and cute?”, and then after that I continue the interaction keeping in mind all the points that I’ve learned.
Now, there are many systems to follow when learning Pickup, but the one I like the best is known as The Mystery Method. It’s the same method taught to the guys from that TV show that aired a few years ago called VH1’s The Pickup Artist.
