how to become a pick up artist

I read this article on CNN.com yesterday and found it very very interesting and amusing at the same time. For those who can't be stuffed to click the hyperlink, the article is about a review of the book called 'The Game' by Neil Strauss who writes about the things he has learnt about the pickup community and provides some 'useful' social skills. Towards the end of the article all I could think of was the quote from Napoleon Dynamite, 'girls only wanna have boyfriends who have great skills'. Honestly I don't know how much the author has to offer as I haven't read the book but would be interesting to see the results if any. Haha anyway read the article or even better get a hold of a copy of the book and let me know what you think! Jess recently wrote about whether chivalry was still alive and if it was still an important skill to have... made me think... after a successful pickup is chivalry still needed? lots of food for thought...

So you came to MY blog & didn't post?! Shame.

YES,YES,YES!! Chivalry is definitely still needed after the pick up...or in my case marriage. How else do you keep the chase, excitement, & a bit of mystery alive? Otherwise, I might as well have married my brother...ewwwww!!x

a guy may have all the charm in the world to get the girl, but if he doesn't keep consistant, then all is lost.

Hmm.. pick up artist hey??
i have a few lines..
Like..
Are you a parking ticket? (What?) You got fine written all over you.

Are your legs tired, because you've been running through my mind all day long.

I hope you know CPR, because you take my breath away.

Hi. I suffer from amnesia. Do I come here often?

If beauty were sunlight, you'd shine from a million light-years away.

Do you have a map? Because I just keep getting lost in your eyes!

When I saw you from across the room, I passed out cold and hit my head on
the floor...so I'm going to need your name and number for insurance reasons.

Hi, I'm Mr. Right. Someone said you were looking for me.

If it weren't for the sun, you'd be the hottest thing ever created.

Now these are just a few.. many have failed but thats no reason not to use em.. LOL
