I’m moving this little blurb from my now defunct links page.
Reading for further reference:
The Art of Seduction by Robert Greene. Pay particular attention to the section on the anti-seducer traits. These are personality traits found in people that turn other people off. Do you recognize any of these traits in yourself, or someone you know? Have a trusted friend read this section, and then ask them if they recognize any of these personalities in you.
The Game by Neil Strauss. I’ve mentioned this a few times. It’s more of an entertaining read then reference material, but if you are completely new to the idea of pickup then it’s a good introduction.
