    people are definitely a lot friendlier when you're in a bikini. just don't ask them to do handstands or shit like that and don't hit on someone when they're trying to dance or get down to the show.

    Don't ask the friendly people or don't ask girls in bikinis? heh.
    I miss talking to TomAz.

    We all do. I live in the same city as him (unless he relocated) and rumor has it that at 3:15am if you listen closely and its really really quiet you can hear him telling you to go fuck yourself.

    Where did this Mystery dude come from? Does anyone know his real name? I recall him on some daytime talk show a few years ago after he wrote a book about picking up women (I cannot believe he is literate) and the audience CLOWNED HIM. Who does he think he is, Tom Leykis with a pony tail?

    I suggest you read the book "The Game" by Neil Strauss. It has lots of insight into the way people interact (which may help you) and it will also reveal a lot about the life of the man called Mystery. Mystery's book is called "The Mystery Method". No matter what your intentions may be when meeting new people, both of these books can at least give you some courage, help you to act and speak naturally, and reduce that feeling of nervousness and insecurity that often seems to go along with such encounters. If you keep on doing what you have been doing you will keep on getting what you have been getting.

    I agree. Reading "The Game" and "Mystery Method" has radically changed the way I approach women over the past year and a half. Obviously it doesn't work all the time, but I've acquired knowledge and skills that have helped my confidence, body language, and overall personality in ways that even go beyond the world of dating.

    Say what you will about Mystery, but from what I've seen he brings up really good points about approaching women. It's all about confidence. Whether you just wanna get laid or have a meaningful relationship. Women smell a lack of confidence instantly. Talking to a woman like you've known her for 20 years goes a long way. And it's not lying or anything, it's just letting your personality shine through a little bit more. So mock Tom Leykis and Mystery all you'd like, but they do have bits of gold that can be very valuable.

    The California Supreme Court should throw out Proposition 8 so Mystery can get married.

    I believe that Tom Leykis likes the ladies. Mystery may also have some good advice, but it is packaged in a man who comes across as gay.

    Some dude just called in to to loveline (being completely serious) saying that Mystery is his idol and role model. He strives to be just like him and he has inspired him to become a "professional pick up artist" for a living.

    Mystery sounds more feminine than Rip Taylor, Charles Nelson Reilly and Paul Lynde combined.

    Dude, give it up. Mystery would destroy you when it comes to picking up women. He's not gay.

    ...I can't believe that people actually need spokespeople and 'plans' and 'systems' for 'picking people up'. if someone interests you, talk to them. talk to them about what interested you! and hell, if what you noticed was that they have pretty eyes, then you just walk up and say "hey, I'm ____, sorry to bug you, but I just wanted to say that you have really pretty eyes". or if they're the only other person dancing to a song you like, or they ordered the same drink as you, say hi and mention it. if they want to continue talking to you, they will. if not, step off, gaucho.
    and if what you noticed first was something inappropriate, then keep that shit to yourself. isn't this stuff just basic social skills? I've always been confused and grossed out by the concept of people going out with the intention in their heads of using a "plan" to "get laid". good lord. get a life, become an interesting person, and be nice to the people you meet, and you'll establish adult relationships.

    sometimes I worry about you guys...

    That stuff all works on guys, because guys don't play games. They want what they want, and are completely upfront about it.

    Women are strange. There are all kinds of strange things they do that men still have not figured out...nor will we ever, it seems.
    Youth, you son of a bitch, where did you go?

    what?

    what the fuck are you talking about cheddar?

    I'm talking about girls.

    the fact that you guys all think women are THAT much of a mystery explains an awful lot. you're all talking about bullshit deception and systems, and then you claim that guys are 'up front'.

    and I'm not even talking about "stuff working!". that was the point! good lord

    I don't know what I've been talking about.

    I've been married to the same woman for 18 years, and I was drunk when I picked her up.

    Just know that I go to Coachella for the music. I know it's difficult, but please refrain from making advances toward me.

    That goes for all of you!

    you shouldn't have a plan of attack. my point is that if you're 'attacking', you've lost your chance to be a nice, decent, honest, interesting person before you're even opened your mouth

    i agree that the show is ridiculous and no one should spend that much time plotting. BUT lines like "i just wanted to say that you have really pretty eyes" barely work in my opinion, and they definitely wont work unless i find the guy attractive right off the bat. im just saying in general, less physically attractive people have to work a little harder.

    I can smell desperation from a mile away, and "plans" reek of desperation.

    Speaking on behalf of attractive people everywhere, you can just skip it, Coachella board. Go try your mystery on a 6.
