While we are on the subject of performance examples of pickup, let’s consider a man whose alphatude, unlike his sexuality, I am pretty sure about. You would be hard pressed to find a greater assumption of the sale on a kiss close. This satire is the best example of his game that I could find on the u tube.
Correction: This is a better example: that AFC in between the two poached women. You can already see the decline in hindsight, can’t ya.
And notice the calibration. His push-pull is calibrated to a comfort zone where the women have both the guaranteed approach and the distant prize. He draws them in subtly to instantly trigger the kiss then plays it off like he is surprised at the curious result. He maintains his premium by removing his invitation without using rejection. That is calibration.
Push-pull proper is, IMO, about demonstrating social awareness as women understand it but as nasty women test it. Calibration that goes up and down to find the moving sweet spot is not exactly push-pull. Women usually need to warm up. The man needs to lead. Heavy push-pull proper is a technique to get obstinate women to follow, or at least softened up to be less dangerous and perhaps more amenable in the future. Perhaps we should say push-pull is part of calibration and that the distinction is not precisely defined, at least from what I’ve read.
He actually created an environment where women felt besmirched if they did not get a status-affirming kiss. I don’t know what more proof you need on the instinctive priorities and cultural vapidity of women.
