You can't really comprehend how bad social conditioning really is…
Here are the main types of PUAs out there:
1. The Keyboard Jockey / Wallflowers
They are always talking about theory and tends to be annoying and awkward as fuck. Since these people never go out, they never have real life stories to tell. Also, they criticize you on the stupidest shit even though you are already making out with a girl. “Yo dude, your angle was off by 10 degrees! You’re showing too much interest!”. Yeah, its hard to hang with these guys, please ditch them. A lot of these guys never get good and end up bitter and quit.
These guys are relatively normal but they aren’t serious about pickup. They go out with their buddies and maybe open 2-3 sets for the night and call it quits. There is nothing really special about this group. Because their lack of ambition and number of sets opened, these guys usually never get good.
3. The Uncalibrated Approach Machines
These guys are what you call synthetics however they never learn from their mistakes. They tend to only have PU friends and lack a social circle. They are more advanced than the keyboard jockeys because they actually approach but their sets tend to not go very far because they creep girls out. The lack of normal friends and social circle prevent them from being chill, normal, and have the ability to vibe. These guys have shed off most of their approach anxiety however when they approach girls they come across usually way too high energy and usually open with stupid high fives, the RSD claw techniques, and spin moves that usually makes the girls feel uncomfortable. Best cure for them is to hang out with naturals or synethetics that are much more advanced.
4. The Naturals
These guys always seem to be able to get girls and pull but whenever you ask them a question, they give you a stupid broad generalized answer. These guys aren’t true PU per se but you see a lot of them in the club. Its always great to befriend naturals as they tend to have a larger social circle. Naturals tend to have humor, good looks, and also are generally very calibrated. They tend to not open a lot of sets like typical PU guys but rather look for indicators of interest and approach invitation from girls that appear to already be into them. Using good looks and preselecting girls who already like them, they tend to be more efficient. Its simply the law of least effort. Never ask naturals to give break downs of your specific questions or sticking points. They won’t be able to answer them. Simply observe and learn from naturals through mirroring; it’s the best way to learn from them. You can learn a lot of vibing, humor, inner game, and being chill from naturals. Befriending naturals can be hard. They already have rich, good looking, or high status friends. You have to find something of value to provide them or else there is no reason for them to hang out with you. Everyone has options.
5. Advanced Synthetics
These guys are what you call guys who started off as synthetics but eventually became good. They tend have both hardcore synthetic friends but they also a lot of natural friends. Learning from both groups, you get the best of both words. The synethetics provide influences on core concepts, theories, and the structure of game while the naturals provide elements of vibing, being chill, and natural humor. Advanced synthetics usually have dropped routines and are capable of organic conversations. From the outside, they look like naturals in the way they talk, but you know they started off not being one because they still use PU terminology. Obviously when it comes to learning PU, advanced synthetics are the ones you definitely want to make friends with.
