3) At the same time, I hate sitting around with a group of women complaining that “All men are dogs,” etc.
I know men are more complicated than that and that there are men who are out there who really want to connect with other men as friends and women as partners (or men if they are gay).
David De Angelo is one of the most important names in pickup, because of five simple words: “Attraction is not a choice.” When De Angelo published his seminal work, “Double Your Dating,” it reverberated around the pickup community like a thunderbolt.
De Angelo had discovered and articulated crucial, vital truths about women and dating.
She’s been reading him for longer than me, so I’ll let her do the heavy lifting of distilling his advice: One of my friends suggested I register at his website.
Since then, I’ve been getting extremely annoying emails about how to “CATCH and KEEP” a man, like he’s a freakin’ trout or something. Don’t sleep with a guy “too soon” (time frame not included–so just guess) 2.
I discussed this with one female roommate so far, who was equally horrified and livid when she read his stuff, and one male friend, who said, talk to your male friends. Be sure to sign up for my mailing list and join me in Buenos Aires to learn about the quirkyalone approach to life and relationships through tango in the Quirky Tango Adventure.
They’re much more similar in mindset to the men you are trying to date. Is there any validity to his advice and worldview, or is this just garbage?
I’ll admit that my feelings were not altogether rational at the time, but they were a product of being brainwashed by his mind-sucking prose: 1) The feeling that men and women are so irreconcilably different that we can never truly be ourselves with each other; anything that promotes this idea is just depressing.
“Attraction is not a choice,” and the logical conclusions which flow from that simple statement have become some of the most important fundamental ideas in pickup.
“,” is still one of the most important ebooks in pickup history.
Let there be no doubt about it: some of De Angelo’s audio and video material has to rank as among the very best material ever produced on pickup.
His “Advanced Dating Techniques” series is truly excellent, picking up where “Double Your Dating” left off.
