PUA types are built around the principle that you need to stand out to be noticed. Which is true. Where they lose reality is how they suggest these dudes go about doing it.
Wear silly clothes because it will be a conversation starter!
"DID YOU GUYS SEE THAT FIGHT OUTSIDE?!"
Neg the pretty girl and be nice to her fat friends so will want you!
That shit is obnoxious and obvious to any chick who saw that reality show with Mystery or whatever his name was.
If I were to run a PUA school, I would tell guys to work out as often as they can, choose a diet they can actually follow, and to focus on their career or school above everything else. If you feel good about yourself, you'll be alot more confident around other people and you'll naturally attract females. Trying to peacock to attract women may work with slutty chicks but people can easily read PUA bs coming from a guy more or less following a playbook.
Having worked in bars and night clubs for years, I have seen it all. Picking up women isn't the hard part.
Look like you take care of yourself. Wear clean shoes and go out in groups of your friends. Invite women into the conversation you're already having in your group. If she is interested, she will be pretty obvious. If she isn't, you're still out with your friends. Who cares?
