Pickup Artists?

Are you watching this new reality show The Pickup Artist on VH1? The host, Mystery (one of the dudes featured in Neil Strauss's book The Game), is kind of a doofus. I continue to be shocked that The Game has spawned so many sub-industries. Neil Strauss runs a boot camp for guys who want to learn to pick up girls; Mystery has a reality show; no doubt other stuff is in the pipeline.

Women never have the problem of not meeting people at bars. My guy friends used to complain that they had trouble meeting women at bars, and that they had trouble hooking up with women they met at bars. I always looked at them like they had two heads. If you're a vaguely attractive woman and you want to kiss someone, it takes approximately 32 minutes to accomplish. Any bar, anywhere in the world.

Now, do you really want to date/hook up with some dude you met in a bar? That's a totally different story. In general, the answer is NO.
