Will these techniques work on gay men?

The above question was asked by a reader named Randy.

Yes, but not as well as among heterosexual men and women.  Keep in mind that gay men look upon other men, the same way straight men look upon women – which is very different from the way women look at men.  As such I would recommend focussing on the visual impact you make: your physique, grooming, style, etc.  Straight men are not necessarily attracted to a woman who is the social centre of the room, louder than everyone else, and I would assume the same holds true for gay men.  Still having good social skills will always be beneficial – being good at conversation, eye contact, being charming, and really understanding what someone is thinking, or feeling.  I recommend focussing on the kinds of men you find attractive, assuming you have a type.  Are you attracted to a particular look, or sub-culture?  What kind of men are your potential targets with?  Do you prefer to have men approach you, or do you like to be the aggressor?  The answers to these questions will determine the best route for you.  I recommend reading a book I wrote about in an earlier post called the Art of Seduction, by Robert Greene, for a better understanding of the kinds of things to keep in mind.

Bonus Reading for budding PUA’s

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.
