How to pickup women
Lured you in with that title, didn't I? Read on. I just love this story. I love the plot and the characters. The plot involves men paying up to $1800 for a 3-day seminar held by pickup gurus. That they could probably get the same advice from their bartender for a fraction of that is not important. That's because you think possibly they're plopping down 1800 to learn how to pickup women? Nay, youíd be wrong.
Mystery insists, as do almost all pickup gurus, that the mission isn't to get a woman in bed. "It's about being a better person," he says.
OK, yeah, I kinda lost it there for a moment but plodded on. And then, this, from one of the characters:
"My game is no game. I'm not a closer, and women say I'm a dork who talks too much," says local Mike Connor, 36, a professional dog walker and recently divorced.
Without making light or even mention of the situation for which he seeks help and without commenting on that lovely quote that Iím sure will send women into orbit (His guru is encouraging him to use that on ďthe ladiesĒ), I kinda think itís cool that there is such a thing as a 36 year old professional dog walker, donít you? Seriously.
No, I didnít sleep much last night.
